Thanks for posting the pic - your cake looks great so I'm sold on chantilly!! We are going with tres leches (our favorite!), chocolate & cheesecake - all had the best reviews!

We chose chantilly also...tastes SO much better! I would describe chantilly as being a little more 'whipped' icing. It was very good though. With our wedding package, we were able to chose a different flavor for each tier...we did tres leches, carrot, adn chocolate cake and they were ALL so delicious! We were so happy with our choices. Also, the WONDERFUL servers at Mundaca Steakhouse took the time to cut a small piece of each flavor for every person, so they didn't have to pick a flavor, they got to try all three, which was awesome!! It broke my heart to waste the rest of the cake, because we had so much leftover and couldn't bring it home with us. They gave us a to-go box to take some back to the room and we ate some 'late-night'!

 

I wouldn't worry about the cake looking perfect with the heat and all...as long as it looks decent and tastes yummycheesy.gif

 

I'm having trouble uploading a picture of our cake, but if I figure it out, I'll send it!

Thanks for the info! I was wandering if they would let you do different flavors with the layers! I really want red velvet, but Jeff would like something more like carrot or plain vanilla!  Can you remind me what the tres leches is?

Upon going down there, I thought we had to pick one flavor and I was having such a hard time deciding on one...so I was really excited when the WC said we could get a different flavor for each layer at no addtl charge. I seriously was sure to ask all the time if something would be an additional charge, because with the language barrier I didn't want anything to be misunderstood and I didn't want to spend more money than we already had!


I believe a three layer cake like that is only included if you purchase a wedding package...otherwise, they give you a smaller cake for the size of your party (unless you pay to upgrade it). It is unfortunate when you get the bigger one though because so much goes to waste.

 

Tres leches is three milk cake...its mostly like a vanilla cake but really moist/creamy and sooo good!! They really know how to make it in Mexico because it is their specialty. You should get tres leches, carrot, and red velvet...then everyone's happywink.gif Haha

 

They also allow you to pick the shape of the cake...heart, square, round...so that's something to think about also.

I forgot to mention that you can change the look of the cake that comes with your wedding package too. We had the Amber package and the cake that was supposed to come with ours was bright orange and I didn't want that. So I just asked if it could be white with some fresh flowers on it...they used the same color roses that I had in my bouquet on the cake as well, so it worked out perfectly! I also chose not to have the bouquet that came with the Amber package because I didn't like any of them. If you can describe or bring a picture of what you are looking for, they are willing to try it (unless its a more expensive flower and then you would have to pay more). I wanted roses so there was no addtl charge for that.

Again great info! Thanks so much.  We purchased the Emerald package and I'm not crazy about all of the brown on our cake in the pic.  I was going to ask them to change the brown to pink.  Nice to know that it's not going to be a problem :) 

 

Good to know about the bridal bouquet as well.  I was going to ask them to add some pink in mine.  A couple less things to worry about!  Your cake was simple and beautiful.  We only have 12 people so a 3 layer cake will totally be wasted.  Maybe I'll have them deliver wedding cake to everyone eating at the restaurant! LOL 

 

We chose the steakhouse as well.  From looking at your pics and Jess's it seems that you get the most privacy this way.

 

I haven't heard from the WC, but I'm not upset yet.  I think if I don't hear from them by the 1st or 2nd week in April I may get a little pissy!

Yeah, Tres Leches is exactly what Amber said -- a vanilla cake drenched in 3 different "milks".  It is SO moist and SO good!!  I actually chose it specifically because I would not find anything like it back home!!  I actually tried to make one myself after coming back, and it was a complete failure lol.  I can't wait to have more when we go back for our anniversary!!  Our first day there, they had it on the buffet at El Greco, and right there I knew that would be our wedding cake flavor!!

Hey Chase,

 

I havent heard from the wedding coordinator, but I would imagine you would hear first since yours is just a couple weeks prior to mine. Let me know when you hear from her, Yesenia said 30-60 days prior, and I am almost to the 60 day mark and would like to at least start planning some things so not everything is all at once!

 

I love Tres Leches cake!! Its very good!!

I'll let you know.  Yesenia told me that I would be hearing from the Miami WC in March, but uh she's running out of time!  

 

I've pretty much picked out my wedding event locations, I just need to let them know where I want to have everything.  Yesenia told me that I'm the only bride on my day so I don't think I'll have a problem.

 

As for the ceremony, I bought a package so I think I'm okay there.

 

I'm bringing the decorations for my cocktail party and my dinner.  I pretty much figured out what I wanted and needed based on past brides that I've chatted with on this thread.  If it wasn't for their help I think I would be freaking out.  

 

The last few post about the cake and bouquets helped me figure out what I needed with that.  

 

I've diy almost everything for our wedding and I'm so thankful for all the help from this site and the other brides.  And I purchased my own table runners and napkins on e-bay.  When I get a chance I'll have to post all of my diy pics!  I've been very busy!!  

 

I did however, book all of the spa/salon services and received a confirmation e-mail.  I read somewhere that the spa/salon books up quick because of the resort dollars.

 

You can book your appointments with this e-mail. Martha Ponce: e-mail: mponce@allinclusivecollection.com

 

I just finished doing my OOT bags over the weekend :)052.JPG

    • 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?
