  4. You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
  5. Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception. I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.

  7. Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night. After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect. The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/ Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.
  8. Hello! We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019. We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
  9. Congratulations Whitney! Puerto Plata is expanding and Playa Dorada is a popular area with beautiful beaches. There are several resort options in Puerto Plata, but I'm not real familiar with offsite venues, restaurants, etc... A few questions for you are below to help with the planning process. What type of ceremony and reception are you looking for? How many local guests will you have? Will you also have guests attending who are from the US? How many ? & Do you need a resort for these guests? Thanks! Patty
  10. Resorts are too expensive. I am marrying a local and he has family that is coming to the wedding, but resorts are too expensive for them too. Are there decent restaurants or communities centers or the like that we can rent out? Is it worth it, or having all the resort services is better?
  11. Can anyone advise where to rent event furniture for my rustic wedding?
  12. Awesome work! I would love for you to share the template. I am also having my wedding in Mexico. My email is welscan2020mex@gmail.com
  13. Hi! I've recently put my deposit down for our wedding at GP Puerto Vallarta for March 2020. I was also wondering the same thing, what did you end up doing? And did it met your expectations? My step brother got married at the GP Mayan Riviera and they had a private reception, although it was fairly short and we ended up going to the disco after because there was no where else to go. We are thinking of doing a semi-private dinner, and then doing the Beach Bash after (private party on the beach).
  14. Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!! I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time. I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana. I love, love, love the resort!! There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year. The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both! Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you. We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty
  15. Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates). I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️
  16. I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc. Thank you!
  17. Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful. I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure. I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must. I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible. I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only. I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time. M&B

  19. @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
  20. They forgot the wedding cake topper Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
