Thank you Rose - it is great to do know the amazing job Barcelo did in taking care of your daughter on her special day!

My daughter and her bridesmaids had pre-booked Adrian and his crew to do their hair/make-up and that was worth every penny. 


The wedding was on the beach at 3:00 p.m., followed by cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the roof-top, and dinner at 6:00 p.m. in the Tule 3 banquet room  The only minor complaint was the beef tenderloin (served at dinner) was over-done and tough. The rest of the meal was superb!  The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make everything perfect.


Gabriela was around for every part of the day (she picked up the bridal party and brought to them to the beach in a golf cart); she liaised with the musician, the officiant, the person working the iPod music, escorted the guests to the rooftop reception and the dinner, made sure the banquet room was set up the way we wanted it, introduced us to the wait staff, showed us how to use the sound system for our music, etc., etc.


The flowers picked by the bride were beautiful, and we ordered flowers for the bridemaid's hair (all of which were delivered to the room in lots of time for the hairdresser).


The bride was totally relaxed about all the details (that's why mom is posting this because I made all the arrangements) and we can't say enough about a destination wedding being the perfect way to celebrate a relaxing day!  All the guests had a great time.

Certain color chair sashes are available and are included in your package. If they don't have the color you want, you can bring your own and they will set it up for you for no extra cost.

I have just posted some of Susan & Jeff's wedding on our blog! They got married at the Palace on Coral Beach on April 14th, and had the reception in a banquet room. Here is a sneak peek, plus a link to about 200 on the blog (they had 900+ from their 6 hour coverage). I have three more weddings to post over the next couple of weeks too. We were there for 2 1/2 weeks and now I am ready to go back! Can't wait for November....

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
