Hello,

 

 Thank you for this info. We decided on a small boutique hotel in the heart of playa, they have given us great quotes and our guests can choose between all inclusive or not.

Our  budget is $7,000. The package at our resort includes the video and the pictures and all the bouquets, ceremony, reception, cocktail hour and lots of extras etc and is $3,000. My dress was $750 and our STD came out to $110 with shipping and everything. Our DJ is $850 and WC free. Were just going to go as a group to a restaurant as a welcome dinner and eat for free since it's all inclusive.

We're having around 50.  When I did our budget I included our stay, travel and honeymoon so it's about $23K, excluding that stuff it's about $18K which also includes my dress, flowers, favors, wedding party gifts, and rings, etc.

I figured people could reuse them for groceries later on. They're actually spacious inside but the only headache is that if you apply the iron directly on the bag, it melts. So a fellow bride gave me the tip of using a towel on top. I've been trying to get a Dominican remedy called "rapidita/hangover helper" for my oh shit kit and adding a bottle of Mamajuana saying "drink on!" LOL 

 

Those look like nice bags.... I am (of course) having a bad dilemma!  I purchased ones @ Christmas Tree Shop.. really nice huge canvas bags with a zipper for about 4 bucks a piece.  I just recently was looking at items for sale from other brides on here and someone was selling bags that looked almost identical to the once I already had.  She was asking $ 1 each and with shipping they were about 2 bucks a bag.  I thought for sure I would just return the ones to CTS but the bags are a little different and I don't know which ones I like better.

 

The second set I got are the same length but not as tall and do not have a zipper, which I like about them.   I kinda of like that the second ones are smaller because that might more of a size that people would use again.  I don't think I will have a hard time getting all my stuff into either of them.  So I'm stuck (sorry for the rant) haha

 

Good tip about the transfers!   I already bought the stuff to do a stencil BUT I'm scared to do anything to them (and of course I need to pick a bag first *sigh*)

 

AND

 

I love your hangover helper and Mamajuana!  Super cute.  I wanted to add alka seltzer day after remedy... but they don't seem to make it anymore.  I did find this stuff on amazon called Drinkin Mate. It has mixed reviews but I think I will end up getting it because it's cute.  I didn't think to add alcohol with it, but I love the idea!

I've tried the rapidita and it works wonders! They sell it in the grocery stores or bodegas I should say. Great Idea, I'm borrowing it ha ha

Good Luck on finishing girl!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
