I was hoping that someone who has already had their wedding or been for a site visit, can put me at ease.  I had planned to have my reception at Zavas Plaza, but unfortunately, it never got reserved and is being used by another bride.  As I don't want the wedding on the beach and or completely inside, my wedding coordinator has reserved Zavas Terrace instead.  I have about 70 guests attending and she has assured me that this space will accommodate all, including a dance floor.  Any observations you have about this location for a reception would be appreciated.  I'm also not crazy about the color scheme (yellow and red) and have heard mixed reviews that there is little or no breeze.  I'll take all the good and the bad, so don't hold back.  I would prefer to be prepared and not completely disappointed.  Am I over thinking the negatives of this location?

 

If you're thinking red/yellow, I think you might mean Zoloco Terrace, and I was told it fits maximum 40 people.

 

If it's Zavas Terrace, there is really no color scheme. It's the front section of the premium pool area on stone. (if you look at the map, it's just beside the Zavas restaurant over a bridge. It's breezy because it's right beside the walk to the beach. We had a cocktail reception there for 63 guests and there was plenty of room. I think this will be a pretty place for a reception. Only thing to keep in mind, there is really no where for you to hang decorations in this location....so plan for items on the tables or something that can stand on it's own. Here are a few photos...hope that helps.

We just booked our honeymoon at Be Tulum in Tulum about an hour South of PDC. I have been there a few times - best beaches in the Mayan Riviera, a lot more intimate as there are only a few cabana hotels and no monsters - VERY ROMANTIC and a real feel of Mexico.  I hear Mezzanine on that same strip is also great and is more affordable but I went for the splurge as I am hoping I will only have to do this once! :)  That is unless we do the renewal ceremonies like Seal & Heidi Klum ;)

Videographer advice please!

 

Bryteyed Bride - CONGRATS, great photo of you on the Beach.

Mel and Bryteeyed Bride, I am waiting with baited breath to hear how things went.

 

I am having a really hard time picking vendors as Lomas is being really picky with whom they will allow in and I have spoken to several vendors who are complaining about ow Lomas is strong arming them into either high commissions, which forces them to raise their prices or locking them out.  Supposedly this happened with the Barcelo & Bahia Principe a while back and they suffered the consequences.

 

Bryteyedbride - how was Caribe Video?  I am really torn about who to hire for videography - there are very few posts about videographers - can someone who had a successful videography experience please weigh in? Magic Vision has no demos on their site and Cancun Video doesn't have anything recent from AS or AB...

 

Mel - I thought that Karisma banned La Luna as they are part of Del Sol, is this not the case?  If I can't get La Luna, I am thinking of Juan Navarro or Claudia for pics...Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • 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
