Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies

 

 

I'm getting married at the grand palladium on the 20th January 1014.

 

Im having a bit of trouble with the legal documents, so far I have notarized copies of birth certificates, but the hotel emailed me saying we need our passports notarizing too, is this rite??

 

Also do you know if we need an affidavit/declaration (free to marry) because my solicitor thinks I probably will do. 

 

Im getting told different info from the hotel and Thompson......don't wana get it wrong.

 

Pleeeeeeeeease help =)

 

 

P.s this forum is a real help

Hello ladies! Well its my last week at work and we fly out this saturday! Getting my dress boxed up on friday, feeling very excited now, been a bit strressful packing all the bits and trying to stick to weight limit, as we're away for nearly 3 weeks, we go straight onto our honeymoon from Jamaica, which i cant wait for, some us time! Been looking at the weather now and doesnt look great at all and is saying raining on our wedding day! Im hoping this will change as time gets even closer, if not, the spa area is lovely also, you cant predict the weather and cant let that spoil the day. A few guests fly out this wednesday so i've told them to give me a call and tell me what they think, i just hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did and the weather cheers up a bit as i would hate it to be raining the majority of the time for our guests but again thats out of my hands! How are you all getting on with your planning? Nic xx

Hi Nic!

 

Can't believe you go this sat! That has come around so fast!!! Try not to worry about the weather you wont know until the day arrives what it going to be like and even if it does rain its usually a quick shower over there...plus the Spa area looks just as beautiful! 

 

Hows the luggage allowance going? Have some of your guests offered to put some items in their cases? I'm hoping mine will or I'm screwed lol!

 

Bet you are so excited! Hope that you have an amazing time... please post up the photos for us when you get home, cant wait to hear all about it!

I have a big case, my wedding dress box and camera to carry, he has suitcase, stachel bag and a holdall, now is it me or will they count the satchell and holdall as two hand luggages, im worried he is gonna have to put satchell in bag and theres no room for that or i take the satchell as handbag and carry my dress as hand luggage and have case and he just has his holdall and case?! I have another holdall that im gonna palm off on one of his friends, just to take through anyway! I will post a review dont you worry and will try and put some pics up for you all! we're going to st.lucia straight from jamaica, cant wait to finally relax together and have some us time and just take it all in and to eat all the good food, this diet has got so boring!

Wow st Lucia! ....Nice!!! You are so lucky to be going for 3 weeks! I think with Thomson you get an allowance of 1 extra bag each to carry on or 5kgs? So would have thought you would be ok, but may be worth phoning the weddings dept to see what they say. We always have the too much luggage problem every time we go away so I know it's going to happen this time lol and my partner ends up stressing telling me I'm taking to many clothes and he ends up trying to sneak things out of the suitcase! I'm really excited for you! I can't believe it has come around so fast. When we all started talking on here it seem liked everyone's wedding was so far away! And now it's your turn eeeekk! Can't wait to hear all about it! Good luck to you both :) xxx

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
