Yes unfortunately it is.  We booked before they changed the policy so our vendor fee is only 150.

 

For me, pics are the most important part of everything so I felt it was well worth having an outside photographer.  I looked at both HDC and Caribbean Emotions ended up with CE.

I felt they had a variety of economical options to choose from and were very accommodating.

I just got off the phone with the Now Larimar... I had not heard from Silvia in over a week... I was informed that she is no longer with them, and I have a new Coordinator whom I spoke with and she told me she had many e-mails and she would reply to my e-mail in 24 to 48 hours its already been over a week since I had e-mailed her... Is anyone else having this problem...

Ok so i am just starting to plan for my nov 8 2013 wedding. as of now one of my wedding guest is my photographer so thats done. from this thread I have learned about the needing 2 sets of chair sashes... so if i do chair sash I will keep that in mind. But my question is about a dj, does anyone know the fee of hiring an outside company?  DJ Mania has been in contact with me more then Now  and I feel it mat be easier to do business with them lol. As of now we have 54 people coming. so I guess I should start figuring somethings out. Thanks for any info you all want to share :)

We are just going with the resort DJ since we are having an outside photographer and I didn't want to pay another outside vendor fee. I heard good things about the resort DJ so I guess we shall see!

It all depends what services you need. If you want just DJ services and no extras I say stick with the resort. I went with DJ Mannia because I also want a lighted dance floor & projector and screen. It came out to be about $800 more in the price if I stayed with the resort for all those services. So I don't mind paying the vendor fee. msnwink.gif

 

I'm just about 2 1/2 more weeks away till my wedding day!!!!

 

So stressed with all the little things that still need to get done! I can't wait for this planning to be over!!! lol

So far we have 94 guests booked! Having a fountain ceremony, carnival terrace cocktail, and Castaways reception!!!!!! So excited!!!!

I am having Gary from Innovart Decorations come in to decorate. He has taken a tremendous amount of stress off of me with this planning. Let me know if you have any questions ladies!!! :)

Sorry, I haven't been on in a while.  We actually decided to do the ceremony by the fountain.  We originally were going to do it on the beach but I read a bunch that the beach isn't private which made me uneasy.  Are you doing it oceanside?  

 

I wish I wasn't such a control freak, I would have loved to do it!

    • 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.
