Hi There,

 

Our wedding is May 25, 2013, ceremony 4pm pergola, cocktail hour 5pm Blue Bar, and dinner 6pm in the Bamboo Room. We asked Pilar to shift everything up one hour at our photographer`s recommendation but Pilar wouldn`t allow it, unless we agreed to change all of our locations, due to some kind of conflict.  I was surprised b/c I thought they only did 2 ceremonies/day-- when we originally booked, she optioned us either 1pm or 4pm ceremony time only.   Bummer, but we don't want to give up our chosen locations so we're keeping it as is.

Hey There,

 

Pilar gave us three options.  We chose the beef filet, the mahi mahi, and the vegetarian option....I wouldn't worry about it, I'm sure three is fine- and almost customary these days, isn't it?  I shouldn't say anything I guess, since our wedding isn't until next year- but at this point, she's given us 3 options...that may change?

I asked pilar if I could have three menu choices (fish, beef, and vegetarian) and she said two was the max?huh.gif How early did you give her the quantities of each selection?

Thanks!

 

I gave my guests 3 choices.  Beef filet, Tuna steak, a vegetarian dish (pasta with vegetables). You should be fine.

She could not confirm why, but said that the Groups Department has it blocked off... She said she won't know what is going on until closer to the date... 

 

My questions for someone is about switching the reception location. I have the Bamboo Room booked. I do not know exactly how many people will be coming to the wedding (a lot of people have said that they MAY be coming and haven't booked yet). If I do not have many guests coming I would prefer to have my reception on the Ocean Front Terrace. Otherwise I am fine in the Bamboo Room. Pilar explained "it is not possible to block both areas because we do 2 weddings per date plus one renewal of vows". Has anyone heard about two weddings happening at the same time? Ie. One in the Bamboo Room and one on the Ocean Front Terrace???

 

 

 

Almost every day when we were down there they had 2 weddings going on. They can have one in the bamboo room and one on the terrace. Mine was supposed to be on the terrace and I believe the other wedding that day was in the bamboo room. You most likely won't notice...I never once saw the other wedding that day. As long as the other person isn't having theres are the terrace you could probably change it last minute if you want. You will just have to take the chance that you can't change it.

Pilar was the main wedding coordinator but once we were down there and the day of the wedding Deisy did everything for us. She was great!

Does the resort have any rules against fake flower petals for the aisle?  To go thru the resort is ridiculously pricey (like $100 for a petal covered aisle) but I found a vendor on ebay that does 1000 pcs for $4.29 (and free shipping too!) but before I order I wanted to see if any other brides have had problems bringing silk petals? Thanks ladies!

I'm pretty sure (don't quote me on this) but I'm pretty sure it has to be dry freeze petals. I've seen a website called http://petalgarden.com/ that seem to have some good deals.

I was worried since everyone is talking about Pilar..I haven't heard anyone mention Deisy. I met with her, she is super nice. Just wanted to see if anyone had her plan the wedding.

Was she with you all day of the wedding?

Thanks - I took a look at the website you gave...next question, anyone know approx. how long the aisle would be for the pergola setting?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
