@@Danamarielouise After I found out who my coordinator was (which was listed in the date/time confirmation email), I emailed her as soon as I received it just to introduce myself and ask some questions. She sent me a response the next day with answers to my questions and a spreadsheet detailing the cost for additional items.

Hello Ladies,

 

I'm a newbie on this forum. My wedding is on Oct. 28, 2014 at Now Larimar and i must say, what a great help it is to read your comments and suggestions!! Thank you to all the brides who posted their description and the pictures of their wedding day.

 

I have a question, has anyone booked their reception at Carnival Terrace (its on the Secrets Resort side and can be used for reception)? Any reviews? 

 

Is anyone making the Welcome Bags or the Out of Town bags? What are you putting in there?

 

Thanks :)


Looking for simple ideas for table decorations?   I think we have covered the decorations for the beach ceremony, but i am struggling with what to do for the beach reception.  Have any of you seen pictures for a beach reception?    BTW, for any bride getting married there after 7/25/14, i will have several decorations that I can leave behind with the wedding coordinator.  My mom is a florist and she is doing the silk flower "balls" that hang on the  shepherd hooks that go along the isle for the ceremony.   They are different shades of coral.

 

 

I would love to see the decorations that your mother will make. My colors are coral and fuchsia, and i was thinking of getting flower balls/pomanders. 

Looking forward to the pictures!

@@OctoberBride2014 Congrats and welcome to the forum! I am making OOT bags for our guests. They'll be very simple: 1 bag per room and inside I'll have goodies for each guest in the room. This is including a 16oz tumbler, a room key holder w/ bungie key ring, puzzle book, pens and hand sanitizer. I'm also thinking about including a schedule of events for the wedding day, and putting a list of facts and things to do in Punta Cana. I think my TA is going to give the guests a welcome packet after all payments have been made in full for the rooms, so I'm waiting to make sure I don't duplicate anything she's sending out.

@@duchovny0901  Thank you and thank you :)

That welcome bag sounds very nice!! Thanks for the ideas!!

What kind of room key holder is that? How different is it from a keychain? I assume that Now Larimar has a typical plastic card key, i didnt know there are key holders for them... I tired googling, and i'm only getting keychains...

@@OctoberBride2014 No problem! They are actually clear ID Badge Holders that I got off of eBay. They have a Ziploc top closure.  I got 100 for $15. Then I bought the bungie key ring cords to attach to them so the guests can keep them around their wrists as they're walking around. I'll try to figure out how to attach a picture!

Hi ladies!!!  

 

It is so fun reading all of your posts.  Does anyone know how strict they are with their restaurant dress codes?  My guys are not too fond of wearing pants every night...

 

Also, did anyone have, or is anyone planning to have, a traditional long head table?  I want a long enough table for 14 people... is that unreasonable for a poolside reception?

 

Thank you!!!

 

June 6, 2014 wedding :)

 

 

Hello! And congrats!! Fiancé and I went for a site visit in September and they were pretty flexible with the dress code at the carnival Buffett and seaside grille (cant remember the exact name).. However the steak house, Mexican, Asian, and French restaurants are/were very adamant on men wearing long pants. Fiancé was able to slide w/ jeans at the Mexican restaurant but the French restaurant required your Sunday best!!

Did anyone receive the promo book 5 rooms get the 6th free? If so can you share how much your credit was? (How many free rooms and for how many nights) Ex: 2 free rooms for 4 nights each. Total of 8 nights free.

 

Hello and congrats!!!

 

We did receive the promo, we actually booked 29 rooms and "got 3 free" and 3 "upgrades" we did not want to use the free because they were tropical view so we ended up being credited $1,866.

@@DR2015 I signed up for the same promo and have the same tropical view rooms for my guests! We don't want the free ones either; just the credit for the free ones.

 

You received your credit already? I was told that they wait until you've completed your stay and then credit your account. We already have 32 rooms reserved so far!

    • 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?
