Carolina did tell me that if the photographer was part of our guests, we didn't have to pay the $500 outside vendor fee.

I sent out a question to Carolina but haven't got a response. I assume she is busy. Does anyone know the surface from the light post to the gazebo entrance. It looks like brick but I want to be sure before I click the "order" for my aisle runner! *For past brides* - If you used an aisle runner - what decorations did you use to hold the aisle runner in place?? I'm thinking of something that adds to the beach setting.

Hi girls,

 

Im getting married in January 2015, at the GPP  as well.  Its so great reading your posts, I see im not the only one confused and with a millions questions. Congrats to those who have already gotten married and for those who have not yet best of luck planning..... I just received my confirmation and package info from Carolina this week.  We still dont know what package to pick, we would love the beach party and will probably pick that, however its the supper part we dont know where to go and what to do!!! Semi private, private, beach party supper!!!!  So many details and different prices.  Also how did you decide your colours??  Anyone pick red?  Melissa Epple congrats to you and your now hubby, I too have a friend who will be taking our pictures did you have to pay a fee for this since you did not go with a photographer from the resort?

Hey Everyone!

 

Time is dwindling down and I wanted to see if anyone could help me out when it comes to the private reception.  How did Carolina set up the tables if you had the private reception.  Were the tables rectangular, circular.  I'm trying to envision this but am wondering if any of the past brides can help me out.  Thank you!

Sweeeeet!! Thank you so much for that information ndenney!  That's very helpful.  I'm also trying to get ideas for ceremony/cocktail hour/reception flow.  Can anyone speak to their weddings and what went well and what didn't when it comes to this and provide any advice?  We are thinking of doing a cocktail hour at Hemingway Bar. Is the bar a big open space or are there areas that can be roped off for wedding guests? Are we able to get our own bartenders?  How long should this little meet & greet event be? Any insight would help us out.  We are feeling the time crunch 41 daysss...

Hello fellow brides!

 

I will cross post this on the other forum but I was wondering if anyone has any additional information about the renovations that are taking place on the Bavaro side for the restaurants.  I'm actually a little worried since ALL of them (from what I've heard have been going through renovations so it means that they may be unavailable in a couple of weeks.  Has anyone heard or seen any of the new changes at the resort.  Does it create a bottleneck at the other restaurants due to this.  Geez, this just makes me that more nervous.  Please let me know!

We just came back from there on the weekend... Don't worry about the restaurant renovations! ALL of the restaurants were open.  They just finished the GP Bavaro lobby on the day we left (it looks great!) There is some construction, but that is because they are building new villas, so you might hear a bit of noise or have to detour, but it really is not that much of an inconvenience or nuisance.  I too was worried about the restaurants before we arrived, but we didn't have any issues.  Have fun and good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
