@@desmiv wow!! I'm so sorry to hear about your site visit :(!!!ugh that truly would make me nervous as well. But im glad that things worked out well with the WC that it made you want to stick with the resort. I have read about the storm that's been passing through there as of late and the crazy amount of seaweed that has been piling up. :/ But nothing we can personally blame the resort for that when mother nature has her own plans.

 

Before i stuck with the resort i first made sure to do my research on their back up rain locations. And I liked the back up ceremony area and also loved the ballroom so that made me feel much better about possible rain day.

 

Im honestly shocked about the flowers. Because Ive some past brides to have used fake flowers at the resort. Did your WC stated no fake rose petals because they can pollute the beach and water? or just fake flowers in general for bouquets and centerpieces?? Im not planning to use fake flowers by i did go back to review all the paperwork that was sent to me  for the confirmation /contract.. and there is no statement of fake flowers allowed on resort grounds other than fake rose petals. Do you mind sharing the WC comments on that?  I know they want to attempt  to avoid losing profit on most things but i don't see how they can state no one can have fake flowers i doubt they will walk around and remove everyone's bouquet or something the day of the wedding lol that would be insane.

Hi ladies, the explanation she gave me was that it would be in photos and if someone saw those photos they would think that's what the resort offers and it would give them a bad reputation. She made the statement for all flowers not just rose petals. Very lame reason I felt. Especially since you are not allowed real candles.

 

@@racht33, exactly! You can't do anything about mother nature, but I would really rather it not be raining like that on our day. lol

@@desmiv I just finished speaking with Marie a different WC and she stated to me...that if the flowers are being held. Or they are tied up and used as centerpieces etc there isnt a problem with " silk flowers" they are just afraid of the lose petals so they dont fly away into the ocean etc. as the contract states.  I know ive read of brides bringing their own bouquets since we aren't allowed to bring the flowers back from MX. they have them as keepsakes from their wedding day. So in all i believe she really just wanted to implant this idea of NO OTHER FLOWER OPTION so you would be obligated to go with them for flowers. Stinks for them when we have forums like this where we can speak to one another.

Anyone deciding to go with the Buffet for their wedding? Im receiving conflicting information.... Im being told there is no additional charge for a buffet other than the additional per person over the 20 guests included in the package., and Im also being told its 110 per person for buffet.. can someone clarify this if possible? I know this forum has not been active at all ... but hopefully someone is out there starting their budget planner.

@@racht33 Claudia, my WC, told me during my site visit that the cost would be $110 over the 20 and the difference between the pkg you paid for and the $110 for the 20 included in the pkg. She hasn't sent me my updated budget sheet yet, but I will confirm as soon as she sends it to me. I've been hearing different stories as well...

@@desmiv i received the new budget planner last night and it does confirm what Claudia and David both stated the differantce3 must be paid to add up to the 110 for the 20 in the package and everyone else is 110 for buffet. WOW !! I guess we decided to get married in the wrong year. All past brides didn't have to pay the additional amount for the buffet dinner. They just had to pay the original price after the 20 guest and select plated or buffet.  We will have to opt out of the buffet and have to select what everyone eats :/ ...

@@BeachBride2016 i received an updated one last night from David. after i thought I completely understood what was going on after my phone call with him. I spoke to a few brides today and we are all confused all over again.. haha... Using Dreams of Love package for example..

 

It states anyone additional over the 20 in the package is 83 dollars for the silver menu. Then a few cells under that.. it states to upgrade the silver menu to buffet its 27 dollars and that also needs to be added to the 20 people in the package. So we all presumed ok 83 +27 that's buffet price for additional 20 guest on package... But David stated it was 110 for the buffet. and there is a cell completely on its own for Buffet at 110.So we aren't sure if that 110 charge is also includes the same as the 83 charge where it has everything added to it.. cocktail hour, dinner, champagne etc. Or its just buffet.  AHHH  So we are back to square one of confusion LOL

Ok, so I just looked at this and it makes sense now. The pricing of $83.00 for over 20 ppl is the price of just the regular silver menu. If you noticed in the upgrade section for the 20 ppl included in your package to upgrade to Buffet it is an additional $27 (83+27=$110), so it would make sense that any extra persons would be the $110 for the buffet. Not that I agree with the pricing tier what so ever, just that I see how it is calculated now.

 

Hope that helps...

    • 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?
