NOW LARIMAR - MAY 2014 Wedding and Resort Size Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

 

What a great website!  I've learned so much.  I have a tentative date of May 22, 2014 at the Now Larimar.  I am scheduled for a 6pm Beach civil ceremony, followed by a Beach Restaurant reception.  I am planning on the Divine Package and really excited!  However, I definitely have some questions after reading reviews, and my travel agent doesn't answer them fully.  I'm hoping someone can assist!

 

1.  Is the resort just the area circled in Red, or does it go all the way back to the area in purple?  We have some non-mobile adults and young children, and we can't have them walking distances each time.  I am realllllllllllly hoping it's just the area in the red, becaise by measuring the map, the furthest part of the purple circle is HALF A MILE! :( 

700

 

2.  Had anyone else had issues with their ceremony being cut short by the resort?  After reading some reviews, I am concerned that they might shorten my reception time given that the DJ needs to be at the Club for the 10pm opening.  With a 6pm ceremony, there'd be no time left!

 

3.  I was planning on a beach wedding, but so many people seem to love and recommend the gazebo.  Does anyone 

 

4.  Can anyone who has had a reception at the beach restaurant can offer suggestions?

 

5.  My fiance and I aren't huge into pictures.  About how much time was spent on pictures between the ceremony and reception?

 

Thank you all so much!  Even if I don't get a reply from you, just know your previous posts and comments have helped me greatly already and I truly appreciate it!  Have a great week!

Hello!

 

FH and I conducted our site visit in September and I can tell you that the purple is part of the resort as well as a great walk away, however from the explanation by the gentleman at the front desk the purple is garden view rooms only where as the red consists of tropical, pool, ocean view, as well as suites. Nothing goes on in that part of the resort at all. ((If this helps)) when I did my room block for our May wedding I spoke w/ our travel agent and the group booking dept. and made it clear that the garden view options were not to be offered to our guests due to location.

    • 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?
