2013 Now Larimar Brides !!! Any out there ???

Recommended Posts

Never posted here, but read constantly. However I received an email from my WC today stating form February 16th, no outside photographers are permitted.   Just thought I would share that info.
that is so strange, I specifically asked about outside photographers in my question about vendors and was not told that, can you copy and paste that email please. I'm extremely concerned about this now. I know for a fact other brides have had outside photographers and I already booked HDC. thanks!

Me too! Thats crazy! I have never heard of this type of thing! I am really starting to reconsider my choice for Now. I am almost at the 5 mth point and if I didnt have all my guests already booked I would move my wedding. This is awful.

this is what I received from Luisa, my WC on 2/12, when I specifically asked about outside photographers

Hi Luisa, I am working on my spreadsheet and have a question about outside vendors. I am having an outside photographer. Do I pay the vendor fee per vendor, or per person? In case my photographer brings a assistant, will I pay $300 or $150? Thanks!

I let her know I am extremely upset and at this point thinking about moving my whole wedding. I am so sick over this right now. Hopefully we can get enough of us to complain that this can be changed. Please email your wedding coordinator and let them know you are upset about this also!!!

So maybe the just mean without paying the fee I don't see why they should care who we use they are still getting our money. Anyways I have an outside WC with Luxe Destination weddings so hopefully she can figure all this out. I have only put a deposit down might move if this is the case I have a year.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
