Sooo...I  just had my first conference call with my wedding person and so far so good, I started getting pricing but they are saying $250 for a table of 8?? That just seems so ridiculous to me, that doesnt even include centerpieces. At that rate, I can just buy some tableclothes and napkins myself and call it a day!

Yes, this is the rate for the magical moments table settings, and the main reason why so many karisma resort brides bring down many (if not all) of their decor with them!

@@mazarin - Congrats!!

 

@@Lilgabri03 - instead of choosing a memorable moments setup, create your own. White linens and either uncovered garden chairs or covered chairs with white bows are included in the package.

 

You can do a table runner and some nice flowers. I think that's the route we are going to go. A colored table runner to match our wedding colors, nice floral centerpiece, scattered rose petals and votives.

Thanks! Yea, I am communicating with my wedding person now, She is averaging about one week in response time but I am not trying to stress since I have a year to plan and thank goodness I read a lot of posts that show they take so long to respond! I aksed her in my last email if we can pick and choose from the  memorable moments package, lets see what she says. They really nickle and dime you for evvvvverything. Like even having a little table with head coverings on them for the men (jewish wedding) they have to charge you for everything, so annoying.

@@mazarin CONGRATS!!  Omg...this resort is amazing.  My date is April 10, 2015.  When is yours??

 

Did anyone research airbrush make up artists?  I came across one, Dahena Buhaya, and though her resume is fantastic, she is expensive.  

 

As for non-Lomas vendors that we are using, we chose Disco Movil for our DJ and Pixan for our photo/video.  Both companies cut us a break on price bc of the OUTRAGEOUS outside vendor fee.  So, it ends up evening out.  It was very cool of them to do so.  Since Lomas works with a lot of different DJs, there was no way to read reviews on the one that would be assigned to you, so we decided to use an outside DJ, with good reviews.

As for Pixan, there packages for video/photos were great.  Just what we were looking for.

 

If anyone has pics from their recent wedding, PLEASE share.  I'm dying to get an idea of what the Sky deck ceremony and garden reception will look like.  

 

Thanks so much!

Happy Planning

 

Carolina

@@cgcabezas our date's April 20th. :) happy planning :)

When are you planning to send out your save the date and/or invitation cards? 

Our guest are supposed to put down $200 deposit by July 1st. I have a feeling it's way too early to send out invited but i don't know how to get them to put down their deposits without actually sending out invites. May I ask how you're doing it?

do your guests require to secure their spot with a deposit?

 

As far as vendors or hair stylists, I haven't started looking yet. I'm focused on invites for now...it sounds like it's easier to plan a destination wedding but i find it as much work :D

@@mazarin Ten days after mine!! yay!! Maybe we'll get to meet in passing. I think we fly home on the Monday before your wedding.

Anyhow...

I sent save the date one year in advance. But before that, we put down the deposit for everyone. Well, at least for 20 rooms. Then as guests book, they will reimburse us or put that towards our room. Yes, its way too soon to send invites. I'm going to send invites right after New Years. So it doesn't get mixed up with Christmas mail and it still give people plenty of time to book. I think everyone is going to be booked by then, but if not - its a great reminder. Are you using DestinationWedding.com? That what we're doing.

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
