@Bigleap35...I just got back from my wedding on May 3...many of the details I fought with Laura over. .. ended up being changed, or accommodated once I got to sit down with Caribel.

@KaDeidra262 Congrats on the wedding! I hope everything was amazing. What are some of the things you changed once you arrived ?

Did you get legally married in D.R ? I am still debating if we are going to do the legal ceremony before or after the trip.

@Soon2bMrsClark I used the onsite photographers. I was very displeased with their service. .. But I can accept responsibility as well. I was supposed to meet with them the day before the wedding however things got pretty hectic with family, fun, and booze, so I never got a chance to meet with them. I had expected them to take photos while I got dressed but to my dismay they did not. The photographer took great shots during the ceremony and afterwards. He did not take any photos of the reception. I only utilized him for the hour included in the package because another family member was also taking shots. The unedited images were given to me on a disc which I will give to a friend to edit.

We are paying for an open bar as well. We are having about 65 guest with us.
I just found a photographer from Caribbean emotions. Their packages are awesome. Did it change the price of anything since you made changes once you got to the resort @KaDeidra262??
We are doing the legal ceremony in the states prior to going to dr

@Bigleap35 I hosted a welcome party for my guests and one of the things I had argued with Laura about for weeks was the location and price of the event. To cut the cost I preferred that it would be hosted near one of the bars, and my guest would just have to walk to get their drinks so that way I would not have to pay for the alcohol and even sent pictures to Laura of the different bar locations and where the event could possibly be hosted. She said that I would either have to pay $300 location fee if I chose to host an event without alcohol or I would have to pay like $20 per person for the event which included the alcohol. I chose to pay the $300 location and have my guest walk to the nearest bar. Once I met with Claribel she suggested a more private event at the Diamond Beach Bar. So I paid $300 and hosted a welcome party on the beach and had the entire bar with 2 bar tenders to serve my guest.

@Soon2bMrsClark we did the legal stuff here in the states. ..Claribel performed our symbolic ceremony. ..I didn't even have to show my legal documents. I had to pay for to extra guest that ended up coming at the last minute. .. my guest count went from 61 to 63. Everything else was included. Claribel used the package I selected as a guideline and made suggestions as to what she thought would look and work better.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did everything come out to be? We are doing the semi private dinner and having a reception party by one of the pools. @KaDeidra262

Other things I argued with Laura about was the dinner reception. ..We ate at Opa....I was so nervous to host my reception at a geek restaurant. ..But hands down one of the best restaurants on the resort.

My cake. ..I added a guava and raspberry flavor that my guest raved about and it was Decorated with fresh flowers. ..no charge.
