  1. Thanks so much LaraJo! I will definitely pass this information onto my girlfriend
  2. Hey all! I got married in the DR last May and am now trying to help a girlfriend of mine out. This forum was the best thing that happened to my wedding planning so I thought you ladies might be able to help. She will be staying at the Jewel Dunn's River and was looking for an off-site venue for her wedding/reception. Any suggestions??? Thanks!!
  3. Thought you ladies might enjoy reading this from new to the DR photographer, Katya Nova http://www.katyanovablog.com/punta-cana-wedding-jellyfish/
  4. MNtoMX, We did everything a la carte, even the drinks bc we only had 24 people. I think it worked out pretty good that way. I'm sure we would've gone with the drinks per hour per person if we had a lot more people. Megs
  5. Venus909, Mayte had dug a bonfire pit, but since it was too windy we couldn't light it. It was a bummer but we didn't really need it anyways Megs
  6. Ladies, This is part of the Jellyfish Wedding Brochure that Mayte sent to me. If any of you would like a copy who haven't gotten it yet let me know your email address. I don't know if any of these prices have changed, although I think the transportation charge per person went up $1, so from $5 to $6.

  8. Liz T, To be honest I'm not sure if we made it through the list. LOL too many tequila shots! I wanted to have more than enough music, hence the long lists. I had him put the playlists on shuffle so they were not played in the order listed
  9. Oh my goodness You girls are all so awesome! Thanks for the support!!!! Sheri!!!! You are one of the biggest sweethearts I have ever met - thank you! OK....here are my playlists. I know we all have different tastes in music but hopefully this will give you ladies some ideas! This should be a long post LOL Oh - I'm a huge 80s fan...

  10. Jlarruda, I am so excited for you and I can't wait to see how gorgeous your wedding is going to be! I wish I could could do it all over again - good thing this forum exists Let Sherio9090 and I know if and when you want to meet up in Boston, either before you go or after the wedding! We would love to meet you Best of luck - just remember that when you step off that plane, all these small details won't seem to matter as much. Enjoy every moment! it will be perfect! Megs
  11. MNtoMX, I should be able to make an excel file from my ipod playlist for you. How does by the end of this weekend at the latest sound? Megs
  12. BrideMAR2012, I went with the Jellyfish DJ. I was worried about his song selection so before we traveled down I put together 2 playlists on my iPod. The first was for cocktail hour/dinner and the second was for dancing. After our ceremony, while we were taking pictures with our guests the DJ started playing some chill tropical/loungy music - I wanted more upbeat music so everyone could start partying so I handed him my iPod and told him which playlist to put on. From that point on he only played my music - I had him switch to the dance playlist after dinner. Even though he only played from my iPod I would still have made the decision to go with him because I didn't have to worry about the music and the sound setup and lights were awesome. We didn't have a first dance, garter toss, bridal party so we didn't need a DJ to make any announcements so this was the way to go for us. If you want an interactive DJ and want to pay a little more then I'm sure DJ Mannia would be the way to go. Hope that helps Mel2010, We tipped Mayte 20%, although I am not sure if and how it get distributed among the staff. Megs
  13. I wore a pair of gold bow pumps for pictures then put on barefoot sandals for our ceremony and reception on the beach
  14. So the sock monkey thing started when I took a trip to Egypt 2 years ago. I had the trip planned before I met my husband so he didn't come with me. When I got to Cairo and opened my suitcase there was a note and this sock monkey in it. I was totally surprised and, of course, had to take this monkey with me in my day pack everywhere. Everyone loved him and when we were in a perfume shop all these woman were grabbing at him, asking to have their pictures taken with him and calling him Buji. Turns out that the little guy looks like a character, Buji from an Egyptian cartoon - Buji and Tom Tom. Hence the name Buji After returning home from my trip and telling the story we started taking Buji with us to big events and it turned into something bigger. Every time one of our friends goes on a trip - Buji goes too. He's been all over the world, Australia, Holland, London, China, Aruba...even the Big House and in the Red Sox dugout He also has his own facebook page 'Buji the sock monkey' The other monkey in the pictures is my brothers. He got him in Boston, when he was here last summer for the weekend that Adam and I got engaged
