Just looking at our contract and we paid $40 for the chair bows, and another $40 for the paper lanterns. But no charge to set up our decorations.

I ordered bug "wipes" from Leisure Pro website . There are 12 pc per box for 4.99 ( US). Ordered enough for each guest to have 2 in the bags.

Does anyone know how easy it is to take out US cash at the resort? I have a couple vendors I need to pay cash for on my wedding day but it's alot of money so I don't want to travel with it.

 

Just for anyone's planning, I am extending my reception until 11pm (latest they will allow for outdoor events) and for 33 people it is going $569 per hour and that includes the 15% gratuity.

It's not easy to get alot and the fee is high. You can get some, but if you need thousands, you won't be able to get that. I traveled with the cash

Plus, your bank will limit the amount of cash you can withdrawal at a time

I am so sorry to keep asking so many questions but here's another one :) I have ordered the vases, candle holders, and a ton of other wedding supplies but now how do I get them to Mexico? I read somewhere that we can only take $300 worth of wedding supplies with us on the flight, is that true? And I also read that you have to have a note in spanish explaining that everything is for your wedding? Please advise.

 

Thanks! And Merry Christmas!

From my understanding you can only have $300 in gifts, i.e. things you are giving to other people.  But I'm wondering how you differentiate gifts from supplies? Do they take your word for it? I'm sure brides who have done this already would have some better insight!

The $300 is per person and is for strictly gifts...like gifts for your bridal party etc. Wedding supplies and decorations do not count in it. They pretty much just take your word for it. I think they see a lot of brides with wedding stuff so they aren't too concerned. It really happens fast..like we were searched and the whole part from putting our bags through the X-ray to pushing the red light and having our stuff searched was literally five minutes.

It only matters if you get red lighted at customs and they go through your bags. But yes, 300 in gifts. I took all of my receipts for what I purchased down with me and separated gifts from wedding decor. We were lucky and didn't get searched once.

And you can take over 300 in gifts, but they charge you tax on it.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
