    Hi everyone!  My name is Stefanie.  I have been engaged since November 2011.  My fiance and I have decided to have our wedding November 15, 2012 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana.  The places looks beautiful.  Has anyone ever been?  I talked to our wedding coordinator last week and I must admit, it is a little overwhelming dealing with someone over the phone and I am getting nervous that things won't turn out the way we want.


    Any tips for planning a destination wedding?  invitations (wording? how to nicely tell people they need to book like YESTERDAY) ideas for favors, etc? 


    Any ideas and suggestions would be helpful!  Thanks so much and congrats to all of you brides ;)

      Congrats on your engagement and upcoming big day!


      As far as wording of the invites, you might want to say something like "To ensure the availability for all of the members of your party and the best rates we recommend booking as soon as reasonably possible. Please let us know if you have any concerns or are delayed in making your reservations."


      Concerning dealing with your wedding coordinator, my best advice is try to send pictures, that leaves the least amount of room for interpretation!


      Lastly, on the note of wedding favors. Try looking into usb wedding favors, you can load them with photos and if you have a photo booth for your guests they can save their photos directly to the drives instead of walking around with the strips! You can even get them in custom shapes like flip flops or other destination-related themes. Let me know if you have any questions!
