  1. It was amazing! We brought the cakes stands, the bride and groom chair decorations, and the parasols and ribbon wands. Really Bego did all of the decorations. As far as guest book, I always thought guest books are weird, so I did some fun postcards off of vistaprint, and had people write advice or a memory on them. I will make a cool little collage in our scrapbook. I will say that having my wedding and reception at Kukua was an amazing decision! I would not change it for the world. it was intimate and awesome!
  2. Things I learned: Don't try to over plan activities for guests, they will appreciate the time you give them, but they also understand that you have other things to do. Give OOT bags, all of my guests loved them and used them all week long, it gave the wedding trip a special touch. If you are not using a DJ, download the Wedding DJ app, it is super simple, you plan all of your own music, and it is nearly impossible to mess it up! Be careful of tan lines until after the wedding, they don't look very good in wedding photos! If you are not using a professional videographer, check out WeddingMix ht
  3. so here is my experience with excusions... I just returned from my wedding in Punta Cana. ISLA SAONA I used http://caribbeandreamto.com/ to pre-book an excusion for my wedding guests to Isla Saona. Booking was easy and the company communicated well. the cost was $89/person When we arrive to the hotel and met with our Apple Vacations rep, she seemed concerned because she had never heard of the company and there was no way to know if their food would be held to American standards (Apple's excursion booker is AmStar, which is AWESOME). The excursion ended up being fine, but it is a very very long
  4. The day is done! I have just had my beautiful wedding at Kukua Beach Club on July 4th, 2013. It was everything I have been dreaming about for over a year! Bego is incredible! She planned every detail, she gave me exactly what I wanted. She gave me my dream wedding. We did a tasting a couple of days before the wedding (you have to try the mushroom penne!!!!! mmmmmmm!) where we tasted most of our dishes, including our welcome drink, which was delicious! The day of the wedding, we arrived and Bego had everything going, I felt comfortable that it was going to be a smooth day. We figur
  5. I just had my wedding at KuKua. And all I can say is AMAZING! Bego is incredible! She planned every detail, she gave me exactly what I wanted. She gave me my dream wedding.

The day of the wedding, we arrived and Bego had everything going, I felt comfortable that it was going to be a smooth day. We figured out the music, I brought my Ipod with Wedding DJ app with all of our songs arranged. We
  6. I just returned from my amazing 2 week DW and HM!!! It was awesome! We stayed at the RIU Palace Punta Cana for 6 days, and everything was amazing!!!!!! I do want to say that I was not thrilled with the salon, I walked down, made an appointment in person 2 days before the wedding. I asked that the stylist come to my room around 12:00. That all seemed to go smoothly...until the day of the wedding. No one had shown up by 12:30 so I called them and they seemed to have lost my appointment (AAHHHHH!!) So I had to wait until 1 for someone to do my hair, and even though I showed her a couple of
  7. I started purchasing about 6 months before the wedding. I purchased enough bags to cover the amount I pretty much expected. And the reast I kind of gathered slowly. Some of it worked out perfectly, and some I purchased too many. In my OOT bag: Tote First Aid Kit Hand sanitizer mini febreez Hand wipes (on the go) Pepto Bismol chewables Advil Blistex A bottle opener a wine corker a foldable water bottle lint roller tissues My favorite candy (tic tacs) Mark's favorite candy (sour patch kids) Spanish phrases for dummies (mini) And I am going to add a few little pool toys, footballs and squirt guns
