I know you directed your question at Rachel, but I have eaten at Pipi's and it's really good! The atmosphere is really lively and fun. However, depending on the night you go, the noise level could be a bit much. But that also depends on your families - that may be just what you want to break the ice elefant.gif No idea how it measures up to Fajita Republic.

On another note, I get married at LC in 10 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were going to stay at Barcelo Mismoloya but are now concerned that it might be too far to town (for those that want to venture in) and then the ride to the marina would be quite long from what I hear. Just wanted to get some advise from some other brides. I want to get everything booked now! We are learning heavily towards an all-inclusive but I think we are still open to any suggestions. We think we will have about 40 people and the hotel has to allow children. Thanks so much for your help!!

I've been trying to get my reviews up, but your post has motivated me to hurry up! Please see my thread. I'll be adding things as I find time to write them, but I intend to review everything eventually :) Hope this is helpful.

Thank you ladies for the input! I guess I just have to pick a spot and book it...I didn't realize that PiPi's was that lively and it sounds like a lot of fun!

 

Congrats on the up coming wedding Christina and I can't wait to read your review. I am getting pretty excited about my own...Only 34 days until mine and there are so many little details to figure out!

Hello everyone!! I joined the forum awhile back, but I have been super busy with work so I haven't had a chance to check back until now! There is so much information here, and I'm getting really excited. My FI and I are getting married on March 21, 2009 at Las Caletas! We've been working with Kelley and she is so great. We did a site visit last June and fell in love with it right away. We just sent out our save the dates and so far we have about 20 confirmed guests. We're planning on having around 50 total. Rachel - I noticed that you were married around that time too. How was the lighting and the weather? I can't wait to post more info. as we finalize some of the planning! :)

Welcome Britt(ney?). The weather is fabulous- not to hot in the day, just perfect for the pool. It does cool down quite a bit at night so remind your guests to take a sweater/ light jacket to the wedding. The catarman ride back is kinda cold so they will definitely want one.

 

The lighting worked out perfect for us. You can see my pro pics by clicking on the link in my siggy or going to ELIZABETH LLOYD - Photographer and clicking on "weddings" and viewing Rachel & Steve's slideshow. We also posted all our pics here: Shutterfly Both pro and non-pro. That should give you a good idea of lighting.

 

I would say that we had our ceremony at 6:15p (assuming we started on time- I don't know) and we probably photographed for a little more than an hour afterwards. We then had dinner (by that time it was pretty dark.) You can still have VERY cool pics at LC once it gets dark.

Just a few of my fav night pics!

 

I hope that helps.

 

Also- those pics are a tad distorted by shutterfly. They are much clearer so unfortunately, they don't look as pretty as they actually are. Sorry!

Thanks, Rachel! It's spelled Brittany, not like Spears :)...but I just go by Brit. Those pictures are amazing. It definitely helps relieve some of my worries, thanks! We are using Elizabeth Lloyd too! It looks like she does some amazing work. Did you use her for your rehearsal dinner too? We are thinking about it, but we might just save the money and just rely on friends and family.

No- we just had family and friends. I did hire her for a trash the dress session the day after the wedding. Unfortunately, I was VERY sick with a cold during the wedding (and after) that I had to cancel. Beth is awesome. She refunded our money for the session even though I cancelled the day of.

 

You will like her. :)

    • 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?
