Kitty is correct. They will make one or two exceptions if people have allergies/dietary restrictions but that's it. Otherwise, everyone eats the same thing. There is no buffet option for the wedding dinner...some resorts offer this but the GP does not. I don't really care that everyone has to eat the same thing...I've been to weddings here several times where everyone gets the same thing and no one complained.

I don't like the thought of bringing wads of cash down there either. However, you must pay for all your flowers in cash (which shouldn't be too much unless you have a huge wedding party and wants lots of upgraded bouquets). Also, some photographers only take cash, as well (Michael Weiler is ours and he is cash only). Thr rest you can pay by Visa/MasterCard. It is the credit card companies that set the credit card rates NOT the resort (the resort sets it to exchange cash from one currency to another, however). So if you have a 20% interest credit card at home it is the same in the DR.

 

HOWEVER, some credit card companies change a "conversion fee" on top of the interest that is charged to convert the amount charged from one currency to another. Now for you US brides that may not be a problem since I think we pay for the wedding in US funds. For my fellow Canadians and anyone else, you may get an additional fee...this is not just done in the DR...when I went to Europe I got blasted with it, as well.

I have AGAIN requested the menu options from Carolina.  I have the ones that have been posted on here but I want her to confirm in case things have changed without anyone knowing again.  Plus I have requested "full" descriptions because I can't just list "beef medallions" as an entree on a formal printed menu.  It has to be served with sides or sauce or something....  If anyone has a menu options document from her can you please share?

Thanks

Hey girls! I know I've seen this before but just thought I'd check if anyone remembers the exact cost. I know that guests can rent a wheelchair for the week if the need it but I can't remember the price. I'm thinking it was $40-60 per day. Anyone know for sure?? My FI's grandmother would benefit from one when we're down there. Thanks!!
