I just confirmed my 2/22 wedding today with David! He said I would hear from a wedding coordinator (which I assume is different from himself) 3 months prior to the wedding. Once I sent my deposit he sent me a ton of info and questions which made me feel better. It is so detailed and from everything I have read it sounds like they are really on the ball! Any advice or tips welcome! Also would love to hear/see pix from any weddings!

 

I am doing the wedding at the gazebo, cocktail hour on the beach, and reception on the deck. We are expecting 75-100 guests. Not sure on buffet vs sit down dinner? Getting married at sunset too, so I hope they time this right!

 

Sent my save the dates today also...I did a mock airline ticket (sorry can't attach pix on mobile app). I also have a travel agent here who is helping me book everything.

 

Ahh that's all for now, sorry my post is all over the place!

@@Shelleyq Mine is 2/23!!! See you there!! :D


Does anyone have the premium dinner menu? I have emailed twice and they sent me the same thing but it didn't include the premium menu!! Also, for the plated options, do you have to ask guests what they want in advance? Just wondering for when we do invites in the late summer/early fall.

@@nattiegams325 that is awesome! Are you having a big wedding?

 

I only got the gold as well. If you get the platinum please pass it along. Also I don't know about the plated options. I thought I read somewhere they wanted you to just pick one. I also read on an older post that the Caribbean buffet was really good! We want more of a casual atmosphere and are afraid if we do a 5 course dinner that it could take a really long time.

@@nattiegams325 & @@Shelleyq - There is a "Frequently Asked Questions" section that reads,

 

"Do my guests get to choose their own main course main course, for example meat or fish?"

"Yes, this is possible to choose from two options, however you should provide us in advance the number of each option, including a seating chart with the names of the guest, table number, and dish. Don't forget to bring your placing cards, otherwise this will not be possible. If you need help with this, please contact our wedding coordinator, she will provide you with a seating guest list and seating form."

 

I hope this helps!

@@Shelleyq We are planning on maybe...50ish?! But no idea. Haha my fiance and I wanted a small wedding but my mom is insisting we invite extended family and so it might be more than we had originally planned for! And yes I will pass along the platinum menu once I get it!

 

@@pddcmc Hmmm I guess I should email them again for the menu. If we send out invites in the early fall we should include the entree choices in the invite. Thanks!

Can anyone share their wedding video if they went with the resort videographer? I'm having trouble finding the company who does it and examples/reviews. I know Adventure Photos with Anel does photog but not sure for videog.

@@pddcmc I actually found the name of the videog - grupo JCM or something (it's in the current FAQ section on their site). They used to go with Cancun wedding video but that was years ago. I still can't find examples though!

 

@@Wedding2014 Mexican night is every Saturday and every Wednesday is Caribbean night. It surrounds the activity pool and they have live music throughout. Oceana is pushed back though, behind the seaside grille, so I think you should be ok. I can send you pics of Mexican night if you want to see the extent!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
