      So I have a main question. What is everyone's schedule looking like for the wedding???

       

      I had asked the question to my WC but she never got back to me. What time does dinner start & how long does your reception end?

       

      I unfortunately am having a 3p ceremony - anyone else in the same boat? if so, what are doing for the time in between then & cocktail hour??

          Menus. Does anyone know if the resort provides menus for each guest. I'd like to know before I create another DIY project. LOL

              40 days to go until my wedding and I've been so busy I had to force myself to stop looking at this forum! *BUT* I had to share some AMAZING NEWS for all of you brides-to-be!

               

              The centerpieces have been my biggest challenge! I thought about making them myself but I already have way too much on my plate. I have a huge wedding (I think the biggest Dreams Punta Cana has ever seen).

               

              We have 158 people confirmed and booked (16 tables of 10 people)

               

              Anyway the good news is that I found a local florist who is AMAZING and will be doing my centerpieces for a little less than HALF THE PRICE DREAMS PUNTA CANA was going to charge me!

               

              Real flowers.

               

              My  family is Dominican and I asked around and waaaaa laaaa! The only problem is that she does not speak English! All of my communication has been in Spanish with her.... so maybe you have a friend who speaks fluent spanish who can help you communicate with her.  

               

              I emailed her images I pulled from Pinterest of the centerpieces I want and she is going to re-create them! She is a wedding planner in DR so she has access to many more extras aside from flowers. She also offers the Tiffany chairs, decorations, candles, etc.

               

              Here is her website:

                    mdf1us I asked that to my WC Deyanira if they could provide the menu and she said yes.  Might not be as nice as what you would like to do, but she said that it wouldn't be any problem for them to make them.  She didn't say anything about charging but who knows about that.

                    This is what I asked and what I got back from her: Are you able to print a menu card for the guest?[Deyanira Aristy]  we could print  a menu but you can feel free to bring this with you if desired

                      Grace, I am so excited for you too!! You and TCruz have me anxious for your weddings!!! :)  

                       

                      THANK YOU for the day of itinerary!!! this helps me out sooo much! 

                       

                      BTW, seriously everything you are doing is what we want!!! :)    I do have a few questions if you don't mind :) :)

                       

                      - My PRican fiance is a Perico Ripiao fanatic! That was his "must have" :) :P  I already know your wedding is going to be bananas!!! Btw, I'm curious to know why they are only scheduled for half an hour? is that all the the resort offers? 

                       

                      - Who did you hire as your DJ?

                       

                      - Why does your reception end so late?? Is it b/c you are in the ballroom?

                       

                       

                      & thank you for giving us another florist option!! I'm interested in seeing how your arrangements come out. Before I start asking around since I only have 5 tables and am still debating on what to do.
