Hello

I am still getting used to this forum stuff. I am also getting married on Saturday May 29 2010 at the Barcelo Palace at 6 pm. So I know there are a couple brides on this forum that have the same date, I am just wondering what times your ceremonies are ? Also If anyone knows? Do you have to use a D.J. the Barcelo provides or can you bring an outside one?blush2.gif

Thank you

Nichole

Laura4ever, what kind of quote did you get for your cake if you don't mind? I'm looking at something simple, probably 2 tiers. Just curious if they are reasonable. Thanks!

Hello! I am one of them! MOBride is another! My ceremony is at 2 and hers is at 4! How awesome is that going to be!!!

I hired an outside DJ (DJ Mannia). You can bring in an outside one, but they charge you $50 an hour for electricity. My DJ gave me the option that I could rent a generator from him for $80 for the full time, so that's what i did. Maybe your DJ could offer the same thinghuh.gif

Hi there Nichole! Welcome to the forum. I'm the 4:00 wedding on May 29th!!!! I'm just going to use the ipod for music, but I do believe you can use an outside DJ for a charge perhaps for electricity?? Happy Planning!

Have you picked where your reception is going to be held?

Do you have pictures of flowers for bouquets or centerpieces from the Barcelo yet?

Thank you

How did you find D.J. Mannia- I do not have one yet but I was unclear if the Barcelo has some you pick fromor you find one on your own?

If the Barcelo has one does he have a good rep?

Also have you decided or confirmed the location for your reception or ceremony?

what are you doing for make-up, hair and nails ? If you are using the resort are you making appts soon since there will be 3 bridal parties there maybe more that day?

What are your colors?

LOL- I have so many questions! sorry !

One more question sorry- Do you have pics of flowers or centerpieces avaliable from Barcelo.
Thanks for the help

Is the hourly charge for electricity the only thing the Barcelo charges for using an outside DJ, since they have their no outside vendors policy, or do you also have to have them stay at the resort?

Hi there! For now, we reserved the French Restaurant for our reception, Victoria said it will not be totally private, but we aren't terribly concerned about that. We aren't planning on a huge DJ type reception so that was fine for us to have a nice dinner with all our guests for the time allowed. If we want to dance we'll go to the nightclub at the resort that night. It's kind of a cheesy place but it was fun the last time we were there :)We are planning on a private catamaran sail the next day with guests so that will be more of our party/nontraditional reception. If we change our minds and use the banquet room for a reception (we are going with the Mint package as we didn't want to be outside for dinner) then we will use the Ipod for music. I do have examples of flowers for bouquets but nothing on centerpieces, send me your email and I'll forward them to youcheers.gif
We are having the ceremony at the Gazebo and I'm using a black and ivory floral-damask type print as the base color for my wedding and accenting with lime green, watermelon and a purply-magenta type color. If you've looked at Wedding Paper Divas, the Brilliant Blooms invitation is the one we chose and is the color scheme for the wedding. (One of the reasons we chose the French Restaurant, because the decor is our wedding theme/colors!!! )
Fortunately, my sister is a hair stylist and she will be doing our hair for the ceremony. I've spoken with Adrian(makeup artist from the area) about doing my makeup for the day. If you've seen eblum999's pics, he is the artist who did her makeup! I'm leaning towards hiring this done simply because I want it to last for pics and in the price, he includes individual false lashes which really look great in photos.
What about youhuh.gif?? When are you arriving? What are your colors and reception/wedding location? Sorry for all the questions, it's just exciting to think we'll all be there at the same time!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
