  1. Another thought .. those who used the resort DJ .. did you give a play list of songs to play??
  2. Hey Ladies! So I'm getting married March 16,2016 (only about 7 weeks away!!!) Just wondering if anyone can help me out. . i have a few questions. 1. I am planning a buffet dinner at the relaxing pool and for budget reasons, only want to book the 3 hours .. but im concerned people will take a long time and putt around eating and we wont have a lot of time to dance and party .. has anyone else done this ? feedback ? 2. I am contemplating renting the bridal suite .. but i don't know if any of us will get our hair done at the spa .. is it worth it to rent the suite, or should we just get ready in my room ( i only have 4 bridesmaids) 3. I wasn't planning on doing any extra decoration, just have the tables set up with the plate settings and that be it .. has anyone else done this? Have any pictures of what it would look like? Thanks so much
  3. I have been so undecided but I'm between "like I'm gonna lose you - Meghan trainor" or "thinking out loud - Ed sherran" I love both so much !!
  4. I am wondering if someone can tell me where exactly the relaxing pool is .. i am looking at the pools, and im wondering if its the one connected to the main pool where the bar is close to the beach?? Thanks
  5. Hey ladies I ended up booking with Karina Jensen. Her work is amazing and i am so happy to have her booked to capture our special day I hear ya, my vendor fee is $500 and I agree, Katya Nova work is also amazing, but a little out of my budget as well!
  6. Hi! I am having a hard time deciding what colors to have my groom and his men to wear. My dress is a ivory with gold/champagne beading and my girls are wearing coral. I think I want them to wear beige pants and a white top but I'm worried the white tops are just too plain... I would love to see some pics of other brides and what their guys wore with a similar gown! I'll try to attach pictures but my dress is Quincy by Maggie sottero and the girls are wearing from David's bridal Short Crinkle Chiffon Dress with Front Cascade in coral reef. Any suggestions is appreciated
  7. Hi Brides! I am looking for any help you may have for a great photographer in Punta Cana .. that is reasonably priced .. and when i say that .. i mean. . no more than $2000 for a decent package (7+ hours of coverage) .. i feel like when looking at the prices of photographers my budget is low .. but considering my wedding is costing $3000 alone .. i don't have much room left for the photographers! I am from Canada, and I hate that all these prices are in USD!! It kills me .. are there any photographers, other than Photo Phil, that charge in CAD?? I love Karina Jensen's style .. her prices aren't too bad .. but i just wanted to check and see if any brides found someone with the same style, but less $$
  8. Hi ladies! Ok I'm having a little panic attach here! We are going in March 2016 and I JUST realized how extremely far away and inconvenient the "deluxe garden view" rooms are from the actual resort/beach .. I'm actually mad right now. We used a travel agent and I had been to the resort when it was Eden h and loved it, but we stayed in the Bravaro Building & Punta Cana Buildings!! My question is, when I asked my agent how I can get us in the other buildings (still waiting on the $ to upgrade) she says "I can't guarantee anything it's up to the resort when you get there" which makes me so mad and wonder why the heck I used her in the first place!!!! I'm wondering if i contact the resort if there is anything they will do for me??? I'm so upset about this and we have 35 people going so I feel like someone should be helping us out here considering we are already paying $1900 a person to go here!! If I would have known this I probably wouldn't have chosen this resort .. I'm so bummed

  12. Hey Brides! So our wedding date is confirmed!! March 16th 2016 @ the fountain and a private reception at the relaxed pool!!! Has anyone booked a photographer yet?! I just emailed Photo Souvenir I had read a few reviews that their pictures were amazing, hopefully their prices aren't toooo bad .. considering I'm going to have to also pay $500 to bring someone onto the resort .. i don't want to skimp on my photos .. but i also don't want to pay an arm and a leg! haha
  13. Hi! I am also just securing my date for March 2016, and am thinking of doing the same.. Have you decided what you are doing ??
  14. Hey Ladies!! I sent off my deposit yesterday .. still haven't heard back from the WC but i know that is not unusual! haha While im waiting im starting to look at the costs of having a bar at the reception .. and im wondering .. i am contemplating going with the "your moments" package because i will get that complimentary, and then just do add-ons for the private reception, and extra people, because all the other stuff like getting your hair done, etc. doesn't appeal to me anyways since we are all just going to do each others hair that day.. my question is, im thinking of having a relaxed pool reception, so with that you have to do the buffet, so i am looking and it says for the international private bar it costs $12 per person, per hour!! Thats quite a expensive little bill. . im trying to do this as cost effective as possible .. but looking at spending $3,000 for food and drinks .. when technically that stuff is already included in a your ticket price blows my mind .. does anyone have any suggestions for how they managed to have a cost effective wedding and still have a great time?? Im wondering if it would be more cost effective if we did this: Ceremony at the Fountain @ 4pm Private Dinner at the Carnival Buffet @ 6pm (they will reserve tables for you, just wont be a private dinner) (i think we will have more than 25 people so we have to go to the carnival if that's the case, otherwise you can reserve an a la carte restaurant if its available) Relaxed pool reception from 7-10 with the music and dancing has anyone else just done the non-private dinner and then only did the dancing reception?? any feedback is greatly appreciated
