Hey ladies! I'm having my wedding June 30, 2014, at the Jellyfish Restaurant. I'm looking at having my guests stay at Paradisus Palma Real.

 

To the PP who asked about pricing - I got $560 for the first 3 nights per person based on double occ and then $170 each additional night. It also includes free transportation to/fm the airport/hotel.

 

I am 99% certain that I will be choosing this resort, just haven't made the final deal yet. I am waiting to hear back from their wedding coordinator about the possibility of having a sunrise ceremony. I want a sunrise ceremony and then breakfast after, followed by a dinner reception at the Jellyfish on that Monday 6/30. I want a welcome dinner that Sat 6/28 at the Passion restaurant. I wonder if they will do that for me.

 

Does anyone know what the outside vendor fee is?

Hi Shaesae,

 

Congrats on the wedding...wow it sounds like it is going to be wonderful...

 

If things have not changed the outside vendor fee is $1000.00.

Well, I'm personally not planning to go until about 6 months out bc I'm still working on losing weight. You should look up sample sales and you can walk out with a dress that day. I see you're from NYC, that's about a 4 hr drive or bus ride to Boston where they have Vows, which is all sample dresses. Google them. You might have to put a rush order on dresses, but I am sure you will be able to find things. Do you have any idea of what you're looking for in mind? Good luck!

Well I am working on loosing weight myself but haven't lost much.. Not sure if it's that I have no ambition... I have been really upset about the way my family has treated the whole wedding and many who I thought would be there are not... It's almost like I am grieving... Weird!!! I am going to start with David's bridal and move on... The dress that I want is an ines di santo dress Lissome! Not sure how much it is but I have to find it some where lol I have been depressed and joined weight watchers and the gym but have not lost much weight... I am not sticking with it which is not cool :(

Hey Ladies just a little advice on the wedding dress :)

 

I am from NYC and I got engaged at the end of dec 2012, I started looking for my dress at the end of Jan and I was shocked with how long it took me to find a dress (due to style budget and what you see in your head doesnt look like that on you). Aside from that on average it takes about 4-6 months for the dress to come in plus you need time for alterations. This was the average time in ALL the stores, thats includes the little boutiques in NYC to the more sample sale boutiques in NYC and the stores around the other boroughs. This really had stressed me out and even though I ordered my dress at the end of March/beginning of April its only coming in mid September and I didnt think it would be so tight. I always like to give my self super extra time in case something goes wrong.

 

Same situation with the bridesmaid dresses, and those take a while to pick out as well. And you need to give those extra time in case your girls lose weight or gain weight and major alterations need to get done.

 

Just how things went for me with the dresses.

Definitely taking that into consideration! Sample sales usually you walk out the store with the dress, though. And as for BM dresses, I'm thinking of having my girls in a maxi dress we order online - something pretty, but inexpensive, not too fancy. Something they can legitimately wear again because it's a maxi dress, not a BM dress. As for me.. I have to get back to NY to wedding dress shop anyway (moved out of NY to SC) and I won't likely be there until Dec anyway. It'll be tight, for sure.. 6 months out.. but if I have to pay a rush fee, I won't have much of a choice. Although, I am considering going in October/November with just my FI and starting the process, just to see how I like things on me and make it easier.

Aww, cheer up! At the end of the day, you're going to be MARRIED and that's all that matters. Screw everyone else!

 

Also, that dress is STUNNING!

It's not on oncewed.com - but I think there are other used wedding gown sites you can check out. I'm sure if you tried on a similar style, you would know how it looks on you.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
