Hello ladies!!!

 

I was just wondering if anyone can suggest a good photographer for our wedding. I've just discovered that it is much more justifiable to use an outside photographer.  We are looking for someone who is already situation in PC. Also, I was just wondering if their are any other brides-to-be getting married on May 25th,2012??

 

Thanks so much ladies,

Erika:)

Hi sounds like had a great time Congrats I'm worried about the rain aswell Did they set up the oceana restaurant exactly like how u would have had the portifino terrace set up minus the lanterns? How quick was the transition? Did ur guests have to wait around? How did it look inside the Oceana? Was it fully private or were others in the restaurant aswell? Have any photos? Btw I loved the photo with u and dragging the lanterns soooo cute : )

They set the Oceana up with 3 tables of 10.  We didn't have a table for the cake or the guestbook so I had to scamble around after to try and get my guests to sign the guestbook which was a wedding tree so I actually had to get their thumbprints.  The Oceana is not private we had people at the table next to us which also means no music or dancing.  This was a huge bummer to me because I worked sooo hard on my playlists. The transition was semi smooth I wouldn't say overly quick but it was fast enough I guess. My guests were standing waiting for them to finish the set up.  My bridesmaids put the lanterns I had on the chair backs which was nice and the wedding coordinator put my table lanterns on, other then that she didn't do alot.  We were at the back of the restraunt so we only had people on one side of us.

Hi smtc0245

Besides the rain, your pictures look lovely and it still looks like you were able to make the best of the situation.

I was noticing your lanterns, did you tie ribbons to them that matched the colour of the lantern?

Thanks,

J

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
