Dreams Punta Cana Brides

Recommended Posts

Elena - I am pretty sure that when I was in Punta Cana last year, my Mom said every single day it showed rain showers while we were there... and it only rained for about an hour one day! Don't worry about that too much :)

 

Toya - can't wait for the pictures of the fitting!!

 

Eliana - NEED THESE INVITE PICS! I'm going to post mine too, I just need to get my batteries charged... hehe!

 

Erin - I actually had a couple of more people book (yay!) and then another couple of dropouts... Flori basically said it didn't really matter, so I'm not worried! I am pretty sure our numbers will be at about 19 ish... so thats close enough for me :) I am so excited for your planning thread... and like you said, we have probably seen a lot of it, but it is always cool to see it all together in one place! I liked your pre-travel the best, because it covered so many bases it was hard to have ANY questions! I did that all in one evening/night... did you just staple it together? And when did you start your planning thread?

yayyy! so glad that you are getting to do that still! if there's anything you want to see or know about for la barcaza, let me know and i'll make it happen!

i actually had my travel booklet printed and bound by a local company. i don't see why you couldn't just staple, or hole punch and put a ribbon through it if you feel crafty?

i started my planning thread a while ago, but all i did was write down each of the indi. things/areas i wanted to cover (rings, my dress, BM dress, centerpieces, etc.). i have gradually been adding descriptions and the IMG codes for the pictures.. honestly i think that has been the most time consuming part since you have to go through and find the right picture!

AHR invites (now with stamps!) are out the door!! after this weekend my to do list will only have 5 things left, and 2 of them are packing ourselves and packing up stuff for our dogs at the kennel! i'm getting my e-ring cleaned this weekend and i can't wait to see how shiny it looks!!

so back to Barcaza brides.... we are doing a day excursion with them and have been in contact with flori. Since we are just booking now, and dont really have time for the wire transfer she is going to meet us at dpc to give her payment in either travelers check, money order or DR money. Was this your experience / process as well. It sounds kind of fishy and we dont want to get ripped off because we would have no recourse but maybe thats just how its done. and i'm just worrying about everything! thanks!

 

Erin - we leave sunday the 25th! what time do you get in?

elena, there is nothing to fear with flori! she's meeting us at the resort the day before the wedding so we can pay her the remainder (we're doing travellers' checks). i think this is a pretty common occurance actually. i've never heard of anyone having problems with it!

 

our plane lands on the 24th at 6:30, so we won't get to the resort until later that evening. do you leave early the 25th?

I am definitely going to get my welcome books bound, since they are quite thick... so for the pre-travel I might just do the ribbon or something hehe!

 

Elena, there is nothing to worry about! As weird as it may SEEM, they are reputable and didn't run away with our money... haha! ACTUALLY, it cost us more in the long run to send a wire transfer, since that alone costs money...

 

Erin, what are the payment mehtods for the rest? Do the travelers checks cost extra in the sense that they come with fees? As you know, we've all heard that it is not recommended for down there...?

i know that travellers' checks aren't recommended for the resort because there are fees for that, but i don't think there are associated fees when you pay a company like that. at least flori didn't say anything like that, so if they are i will certainly throw a fit. we're doing travellers' checks for a portion and then we'll pay cash for the remainder since we still have to finalize it with her... our guest count has fluctuated some in the past couple weeks!

of course.. la barcaza and the huppah.. got em covered for you!

 

yeah, well my MOH decided a month out she was going to bring a date and then we weren't sure if J's daughter was going to be coming or not. it won't make that big of a difference in the cost, thankfully.

Oh ok, that's good! We had some drop outs, then some adds, and I told anyone that added over the 20 person threshold that they would have to pay for their own boat cruise (since it is people I don;t even know, friends of guests).

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
