Good Luck!
Thanks. I emailed her earlier and requested a read receipt. Haven't gotten one yet.

I filled out the "form" to reserve my date but left a bunch of sections blank (booking number, tour operator, room type, etc...), so hopefully she accepts that and can reseve my date.

I just got a email from Yuritzia and then when I tried to reply I got a error so now I resent the email using this email groupsmx2@bahia-principe.com and so far no error but when I reply from a email sent from her it is a different it is Gerente_Grupos_y_Banquetes_BPAKU/Bahia_Principe@soltour.es so maybe there is a problem when you reply to a email from them.

Yeah, that's all I did too, they just asked me to forward our booking numbers etc once it was all set in stone. I'm sure it will all work out! :)

We originally wanted the mariachi band right after the ceremony but our friend is playing the bagpipes for our recessional so she said why don't you have him play and then take picts with family & friends so our guests and us are not missing the band. Then have dinner and then have the band play after dinner, so pretty much we moved the cocktail hour til after dinner.

We also were able to book our wedding before we booked our trip. We org. contacted the resort in March for a Feb wedding but they said they were not booking that far out yet and we had to get back to them at the end of April or early May.
Awesome thank you! I was nervous about giving people a timeline when we can't even really confirm the time etc until we get there. That makes more sense that we would give it to them once we get there and everything is worked out...

JKCZ- I know, its coming up fast. We leave on Friday. I was just at my hairdresser and she reality checked me into realizing that I have TWO DAYS before I leave. I'm stressed one minute and not the next. We're pretty prepared. Just a couple of last minute things we still need to do. If only Jazmin would respond in a timely fashion to my emails, things would be a lot better!! We still haven't decided what we are doing for dinner... I'm waiting on her to answer some questions. We're trying to decide between the outside poolside private Taquiza dinner (which is cool, but quite expensive when you add everything up - extra for drinks, extra 2 hours for the DJ, extra for dessert, I think etc. etc.) and dinner at the Mexican restaurant (free and included in the package). I just don't want to wish I had done things differently when I look back on it!! And RyanAmanda's private dinner looked so beautiful!!

 

 

Deep breaths.

Speaking of DJ's. I am getting Married at the Akumal on May 26th and we are having the poolside dinner/reception. Can someone give me the down-low on how to pick the DJ and share some of their personal DJ experiences? Thanks!

How exciting and nerve racking to be leaving in days, yeah it would be good if you could get answers to your questions quicker. We were trying to decide between a private reception vs restaurnt but decided on the rest. bc it can be windy in Feb so we thought we would do the band and dj outside & if people are chilly they will have to dance!

 

We hired DJ Bob he is originally from New Jersey. His rates are pretty good. Here is his website. Wedding DJ we just needed to provide him with 10 songs and he will pick the rest which was a big check off our list. There is also no charge to bring him to the resort either so that is a bonus!

I thought they provide a DJ there? I mean, we are going to be getting married on the Tulum side, and I was under the impression that they were providing the DJ, and that it is $150 per hour... and we could give him some CDs if we wanted? Is this true?? I am all confused... Plus... another question... I think someone posted it before... are you supposed to make a CD with you walk down the aisle song, all that stuff? Sorry, my brain is fried lol

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
