Thanks for your reply! :)

 

Eugenia hasn't mentioned anything about a cash deposit. Did she wait until you got there to tell you about it or did you know about the deposit before you left for Mexico?

 

Sorry about the late response. Jazmin told me about the deposit before I left for Mexico. The final email she sent me, she mentioned the cash deposit. Again, I'm not sure if this is standard across all 3 of the resorts or if that was just for Tulum.

This is a picture of my cake that we got... we had dinner at the Don Pablo on Tulum. We had the 3 milks (tres leches) and it was AMAZING! I had to request for a 2-tier cake from Jazmin though. I asked her to make the 2 tiers smaller than usual just so I can't have the layers.

My photographers stayed for 5 nights. I booked their stay for Nov. 10 -15, which was sufficient for the resort to let them photograph my wedding.

I'm going through my photos from the trip and my dad's facebook photos. Tequila has square tables from what I remember and what I can see in the photos. My family was there in a group of 7 or 8 and they just put together some square tables to make a long table for them. I believe the settings there are 8-10 people per table.

Hey Ladies!

My wedding will take place at the Akumal Beach location in Feb. I am just talking with the WC Eugina which has been great.

I am wondering what all of you had for dinner (we chose Dolce vita at Akumal) she wants me to chose what each person will be eating (the same appy soup and main for all 26 people) I am a little uncompfortable choosing one dish for all 26 people to eat the same thing.... any advise? was it the same for you all??

Welcome Amandah86!

 

Yup, that is typical.  You can select a vegetarian option, if that is of concern though.

awe, :( i was hoping that wasnt the case :( I figure if all 26 of us went to any of the other restaurants on any other day we could sit as a group and order what we want.. I understand its probably easier for them to do it that way.. but not easier for me :(


Is that because for a one week stay each person gets 3 restaurant nights... and with a wedding techinically they get 4? because the wedding night doesnt count against a restaurant meal?

Thanks egagne87 for posting this! I would love to know more about your wedding- I am getting married at the end of February and we are eating at the Portofino with our reception at the Jacuzzi Pool in Coba!   Couple questions for you:

 

How many guests did you have and did you think the Jacuzzi Pool area was large enough for people to dance?  We have a little over 50 and I am worried about it being large enough-

 

What was your menu at Portofino and did your guests like it?

 

Did your wedding party give speeches?  Any spot you would recommend to do this (dinner versus reception)

 

What did you think of the Coba Salon? How much was it to get your hair done?

 

Would LOOOOVE to be able to email you!!! Sounds like we have the exact same wedding day J

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
