Plan your wedding with ease! Trust me, I was bridezilla!

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

 

Just wanted to share something great with all the future brides getting married at Paradisus Palma Real or Paradisus Punta Cana!

Here's a quick story of how the vision of your dream wedding can come true easier than you could ever imagine!

 

Planning a wedding in another country can be a headache, especially when you have to go through US offices instead of dealing directly with the resort. This is where I started...not knowing what to do or who to contact. Emailing endless people with millions of questions. Putting deposits down to save my date and time, hoping that the money was going to the right place. Stressing that I would plan a wedding, then get there and everything would be chaos (which happened at a destination wedding I'd been too. Someone planned their whole wedding to find out when they got there that their wedding planner had quit and not passed on her file, and no one had any idea she was having a wedding. She had to re-plan the whole thing in 3 days!)

 

So, to avoid the catastrophes that were already forming in my head, I decided to hire a wedding planner. This took some time, it was like an interview process...until I met the most wonderful woman at a wedding show. Right off the bat we hit it off, and with her high energy and wealth of knowledge about the Dominican, I had a really good feeling she was the one.

 

But I didn't hire her right away. I stopped shopping because my fiance didn't want to spent the extra money. So we attempted to do it ourselves. I sent emails, made phone calls and put deposits down to hold my date, all while dealing with someone in a Miami office.

 

I had exchanged emails with this woman as she was kind enough to give me some free guidance when she saw how stressed I was talking to her about planning a destination wedding. When I had finally booked my date and time and sent a deposit in, I emailed her to thank her for her help and advice. It was at this moment everything changed.

 

She asked me what the resort had sent me in regards to confirmations, paperwork and choosing a venue for the wedding. At this time, I had received nothing. Right then and there she explained all the things the resort should have sent me and why I was already on the brink of disaster in just my first step. If it wasn't for this conversation with her, I could have not had anything I wanted, including my beach wedding, because they didn't send me any paperwork to lock in my venue.

 

I knew this wasn't heading in the right direction. And I didn't think she was just trying to reel me in on a deal because at this point she had nothing invested with me, so why would she care? So after an intense discussion with the future hubby, he agreed he didn't want to see his future wife turn into bridezilla and that if a planner was going to help, then to hire her. And that's exactly what I did.

 

Ladies, let me tell you....from the second I hired her, planning this wedding has been the easiest thing I've ever done. I have not had to worry about a thing, She is so fantastic. She's been planning weddings at these two particular resorts for over 6 years. She has made the wedding packages at these resorts and knows them inside out. Her goal is to save you money, as she has no financial affiliation with the resort, so she's not trying to up sell you for commission. You pay her, and she's yours for however long you need her.

 

She has been a dream come true, and with my wedding coming up in November, it's almost all planned. The only thing I've had to do was invitations, dress shopping and booking my trip (which she also helped with by referring me to a great travel agent).

 

So, for all of you who are trying to plan a destination wedding and are having trouble or are stressed out, believe me, every single cent this woman charges is worth it. And her price spread out over a years time is fair and reasonable.

 

If you have any questions or are interested in hiring her, feel free to contact me. I am not working for her or trying to promote her for any reason other than I know how stressful this can be and if I can help anyone else, then I will. TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. She's saved me tons of money already!

 

Good luck ladies!

    • 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?
