          we are getting married at the bavaro princess and the beach reception includes a dj and the price is $65 per person and there is a minimum of 40 people... the wedding coordinator is great so far!!

              Our beach reception was $2500 plus $200 for the mic/speakers hook-up.

              Now, that is what we PAID although the initial invoice we were given at the resort the day before the wedding was for $8600+.

              I had to argue with her about the charges b/c it was completely different than what we discussed in our emails.

              Our ceremony and reception (private on the beach for 3 hours w/ 40 guests) totalled $3836 in all.

              The beach reception was absolutely perfect. I hope to get a review written in the next week.

                  Omgosh. That is insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                  That's why we are flying down there next week to lock in/finalize our contract so they can't try to say something different when the "final hour" comes. I have a feeling a lot of resorts do that.
                  My cousin was married in Puerto Plata and she said they ended up charging her for all kinds of stuff that she didn't even think about/know of in their emails. AH!

                    Wow!! That is such a big difference. This is one of my concerns but we cannot afford to travel down to firm up the contract so I am hoping that just keeping the emails and bringing them with me will do. I hope this doesn't happen, I am trying to think of all the possible extra charges that could come up so I get it cleared up now instead of when we are there.

                    Anyone know of any of the little things they charge you for that you normally wouldn't think of?

                      Get as mnay emails with the prices ahead of time and bring them with you. She did not argue with me once she realized I had everything printed out from the emails.

                      We had to pay for the wedding BEFORE it took place, so as long as you do it that way, you won't be surprised by extra prices at checkout. We got a separate wedding invoice and had to pay it the day before.
