Sent wedding coordinator my guest list for group reservations.

Waiting to hear back from WC so I can print my wedding day itinerary to go in the OOT bags... We've been counting down for awhile now but it's becoming real for me now! :o

Hey everyone! So happy I found this thread during my lunch break - although it means I've been much less productive this afternoon ;)

 

I was wondering if anyone knows who the hotel photographers and DJ are?  We were looking at the pricing last night and I'm trying to do some research as to whether or not we should book outside services.

 

Thanks!  So happy to find a connection with so many other brides!

I'm not sure who the hotel photographers are but I know DJ mania works thru the WC there...I'm not really sure how any of it works yet

Sounds good! We'll have to keep each other posted as we find out more. My partner is supposed to submit all our paperwork to reserve our date tomorrow, so we should start finding out more soon :)

    Keep in mind that you get more for your money when you use outside vendors for some thing such as photographer, videographer, flowers, etc.  We used www.thememory-factory.com as our photographer which was amazing.  He photographed the entire day of the wedding. I would say a good 10 hours as opposed to what the resort may offer which is usually 4-5 hours.  It was less stressful because you know you are the only wedding they have for that day.  You can negotiate and they tend to be more reasonable. We reserved a night at the resort to avoid the vendor fees and it worked out perfectly. 

     

    Also for favors, I found www.dominicanfavors.com which have pretty much everything you may need and they deliver to your venue just as long as it's in Punta Cana or Bavaro.

      DJ Mania is excellent though expensive.  We used the venue's DJ

      @JoWil JoWil was the venue's DJ expensive?

      I have ten days before my wedding date and now it seems I'm reconsidering things just to have a back up plan. We plan on playing music on my iphone through Wedding DJ since we know the type of music we like, but now I'm wondering if we should do a DJ.
