Thanks Babystace & likewise! I got vetoed on the scouting trip by the FI aka "the numbers guy ".....its either scouting trip or a planner. He thinks having / doing both is redundant.:rolleyes:

My fiancé doesn't think it's necessary either lol I'm insisting upon it though. I just wasn't wowed by any of the resort websites or informational brochures. Hopefully in person will have a different effect.

Well after the chat with and subsequent hiring of our new travel advisor, I am thinking I too will get my way and get to do a scoutting trip. She seems really great and although she doesn't do planning she does stay in the loop once I pick a resort incase anything goes left. I am excited to see her recommendations. She is going to suggest locations that have proven highly responsive WCs so I think I won't really need a planner. I already have a few in mind but am curious to see if any of those land on her list. Do you know which resorts you think you like? What are doing/thinking regarding hair? One of the reasons I want to do a scouting trip is to see/learn more re the hair skills etc... & figure out if I need to budget for bringing my Stylist down.

My TA gave me a list based on some of the same qualifications as well as what we told her is important to us, desired guest budget, etc. The list included the Hard Rock, Dreams, Beach Palace. and Paradisus. With regards to hair I want a simple side pony with curls style like the one below. I'll check out the resort stylists on my scouting trip but I don't think it will be too hard since I'll have my hair permed with extensions already placed before I arrive. http://www.aperfectsettingevents.com/wedding-day-do-side-ponytail-hairstyle-for-the-sassy-and-chic-bride/

Oh cool - let me know your thoughts on Beach Palace & Paradisus. I have stayed at a Paradisus in the DR and liked it. Hair - I LOVE IT! I want some sort of updo or maybe a low chignon. The FI doesn't like extensions (don't go there) but I plan to sneak a few in over the coming weeks and will test him to see if he even notices hahaha.

    • 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?
