Ok I have a question

 

 

We want to do a welcome party. We were thinking of doing a cocktail party on the beach but I am afraid it will be too similar to our cocktail hour. (We are having our ceremony on the north beach, cocktail hour beach, then reception on deck) I know the jacuzzi is also available for the welcome party but when I did I site visit I remember the jacuzzis being right in the middle of the walkways to go to the rooms. Has anyone done a cocktail party at the jacuzzi and if so how was it? Do you think people will think the welcome party is too much like the cocktail hour?

@@pddcmc oh my gosh! I love it!! Did you say there is no additional charge?! Do I need to find the stems and provide my own cards?

@@Sheaka thanks for telling me about the candles. I emailed Elisa and she said she told me that only battery candles will work not the regular kind. But I know she didn't. I am a very thorough person and I would have remembered and certainly would not have bought my votives nor candles if she really told me this! Literally everything is stressing me out right now *woosah*

People were really respectful during our cocktail hour - we didn't have any gawkers or people walking through it.

No, they did not charge me for them. I have found the resort to be a little inconsistent with charges. For example, I knew that a bride didn't get charged for something that I wanted, so I asked them why I was being charged.. they waived the fee. 

Yes, you need to bring your own place cards. As far as stems, I'm not sure what you mean.

That's what I said too. It will all work out beautifully! I can't wait to see your photos and hear about yall's wedding day!!!

@@pddcmc oh I see, inconsistent sounds about right based on some other experiences I've read about..I need to be sure to document everything I discuss with the resort too @@smileitseb. Don't fret, it will work out. Your wedding will be amazing and good thing you found out about the candles today now you will go prepared to discuss options when you arrive. Are you still planning to travel with your lighting set up? In my opinion you should negotiate and waive the fee for the electric candle decor. Te your TA to handle it so you can focus on the other details with packing

 

 

@@pddcmc when referencing stems, I was wondering how the place cards stood up in the glass I just tried to take a closer look and it seems to be a toothpick? So would I need to create my own place cards and connect to a toothpick? Will the resort tell me what the dimensions of the place cards should be to fit in the tequila shots?

@@phdtck1 I plan to print out everything. Every bit of correspondence between myself and the resort and my travel agent. I am also going to write out some notes to have handy. I don't want any mess.


@@smileitseb that is awesome! it all worked out. Happy for you. I can't wait to see your pictures. You are going to be one beautiful bride.

    • 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?
