Honestly try not to obsess over the weather forecasts! It very well could rain everyday but for 20min at 7am for example. It usually only rains for a short period of time so I find the forecasts to look deceiving

Hello Ladies!

I have been MIA for a while but have been keeping up with you alls progress. Everytime I look I see 50+ posts! I have been busy with school, the wedding, and of course my little one, but I miss you guys:(

Anywho, we leave the states for Mexico in 7 days! I have some things left to do but I do have things "under control" lol. I can't believe I'll be married in 2 weeks! I can't wait to see everyone's pics when we get back! There have been some bumps in the road, but in the long run I know I'll look back and think that everything was perfect!

 

So I know there are 1-2 locals that frequent this thread, so I thought I would pick your brains. I am bringing my own photog, and we had planned on doing a cenote shoot for some underwater pics. BUT, she traveled this week and her underwater casing equipment was stolen from her checked baggage. Does anyone know of any Playa or surrounding area dive shop that rents housings or casings? Totally random question but I'm so sad I won't be getting my underwater pics:( she just can't afford to purchase a new housing for her camera before we leave.

Hey there! I'm one of the brides that lives here in Playa Del Carmen. I asked a friend in the dive industry and here's his answer: "If you can find out what model, I can find out. There isn't a place I know of that just stocks a variety of housings, but there may be someone in the area that has a compatible housing that may be interested in loaning/renting it out."

 

You could also possibly rent one for her at home before you go and have either her bring it down or possibly you, a friend or a family member. That could be more expensive but also an option! :) Private message me with the specs of her equipment and I'll see what I can find for you.

Don't pay attention to the weather forcasts! KristieT is right, if it rains in the Caribbean it is usually a monsoon for 20 minutes and then the sun comes out. I haven't seen rain here for at least three weeks but the weather report shows rain, clouds and thunderstorms  everyday.

 

I have a feeling the US and Canadian weather sources put bad reports out there on purpose. Honestly, I think it is because the US and Canada want people to vacation at home rather than spending their dollars in places like Mexico and the Dominican. There will be sun! msnparty.gif

I've seen it called "High Altitude" before- kind of fitting for a destination wedding :)

I am glad to hear I am not the only one who has not written the ceremony or picked the music!  That is my project for this weekend!

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
