We did a welcome cocktail hour one night (setup on our own) and then did a groom's dinner for about 45 at a buffet the next night. Your WC can book the dinners for you but you usually have to take the time slot when the restaurant first opens. I don't know if the French place holds that many people at once.
Welcome back! Can't wait to read your review! And of course, congratulations!!

Amberduke - Thanks for the suggestion , I think that would be a lot more casual and less stressful . plus I think I want to have surf and turf for my dinner menus and wouldn't want ppl ordering the same thing on both nights

The only reason I ordered flowers from somewhere else was because of the cost.  The flowers from the resort are BEAUTIFUL and you get exactly what you asked for and more.  And we noticed there were flowers in other places that we didn't even ask for (and were not charged for).

Absolutely!  I had originally planned on making my own bouquets, but the resort flowers were gorgeous and I was so happy with them.  Here are some pix of mine:

How much/did you tip?

WC

Photographer

Officiant

Bartenders/Severs

Anyone else I am forgetting..

 

Thanks!

I searched all over BDW about tipping and found lots of great advice! There are a few brides/grooms on this Barcelo forum who have provided what they tipped. 

 

Our group was small-ish and I wasn't a high maintenance bride (I would say), we had about 22 guests and we tipped the wedding coordinator $75, photographer we paid his rate directly as he was already a private one we hired so since he makes his rates and works for himself we didn't tip further (that was advice given on here...if they work for a company tip them, if they work for themselves you are paying them directly). Officiant made $300 cash so we didn't tip further, the way we saw it was he got that as cash and we could have not paid that at all had we had our own person to officiate it. Servers/Bartender staff we paid $25 each. And I can't think of anyone else we tipped other than that.

Thank you so much! That is basically what I was thinking but wanted to make sure I wasn't way off :)

    • 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?
