We have the Tangerine package...and i have asked Aris what exactly is included in that package for decor options..I have the price list that was given to me for all the extras, but i know there

I was also wondering about the whole itinerary thing - like did you know in advance of your menu choice and wedding day itinerary, so that you were able to provide an itinerary to guests? I am the WORST wedding planner ever and i am so confused as to how all of this operates etc. Like I dont want to assume an itinerary and create one to hando ut to all my guests and then it change according to what the wedding coordinator says it should be.

Thank you!!!! It is not allowed at all and they are very strict but either way the penalty fee is $1000. Sometimes its worth it but it depends on your budget!

For now I am sticking with BBPD but I am afraid that I am only into this resort because of the chapel and the great advice I am receiving on this thread lol Any brides on here planing a Catholic ceremony or have pictures of the chapel Virgen de San Salvador? Understood! I went to a wedding in Mexico, Hard Rock and we had to pay $200/night and I thought it was way too much money but it was a good fr

I am Dominican and have a lot of family members. Its a blessing and curse! I am glad to hear that they can truly accommodate such a large wedding, however I am a bit concerned when you mentioned that the general services aren't up to par. What exactly do you mean? Did your guests have any complaints about the resort? Our travel agent just informed us of all the stuff we can get comp'd if we book

I don't think you can reserve but worth asking. It is a beautifully designed lounge with large selection of drinks, lounge chairs and piano. My guests met there before the rehearsal dinner and before the wedding activities and it is good place to start a party. Good to know it fits enough people, my WC said she would take care of it and prob hold space for me or something, either way it will be before dinner so everyone can do the
  8. PICTURES!!!! PLEASE! haha Glad it wasn't so bad and you had a great time either way, Aris is my WC too ***CONGRATULATIONS*** Quote: Originally Posted by Mary123 Hello Ladies, I am back from my wedding and everything was fantastic. We had strawberry package, with ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on the beach, full DJ package with MC, gold photo package and sun video package from Tropical Pictures. WC was Aris. Number of guests – 30. So, I will start the review in order: Rehearsal dinner at the Santa Fe steak house: not bad but waiters forgot to bring the couple wit

I saw one picture online that shows the from and the bar with like a lounge, but I'm not sure how big it is. I wanted a welcome party too to give the OOT bags and so friends can meet and mingle. After I saw your post and noting that with our friends, we can all get rowdy/loud too, so I was thinking of moving mine to strikers as well. I did want Bar carey though because it looks nice on the pic. Well my

The closest bar is off the rooftop and people would have to walk back and forth. I found some pics on my phone from the last time my FI and I were there. MY FI would kill me if he knew I posted this pic of him, LOL! Oh well, anything to help us ladies plan! I took this pic from almost the edge of the area, you can see it's pretty big. The bar (which is not always open, btw), it located right at the center of the picture, just to r

They're charging us $500 for the cocktail hour plus $12 per person (hence why I really need ppl to start telling me if they're coming or not ahhh). The rooftop is absolutely gorgeous, my fiance and I used to go up there before or after dinner both times we went there, its so peaceful! I'm not sure on the Bar Higuey count but I think it's like 75-80, definitely less than 100. All I remember Aris saying to us

Extras: for now, we're considering either the Fire Show or Hora l

Still going to ask, it looks like it's just lighting but it really transformed the ballroom space! Who are you telling! I'm hoping alot of people can't make it. My FI wanted to invite almost everyone he knows ugh!!!! What's your package? Ceremony? Reception? Details Girl! haha
