Hopefully somebody finds out more info about this option soon.
I really like the ipod idea!!! seeing as the my playlist is already on there...thanks Stephanie! :)

Has anyone done this?

What size batteries do you remember the docking station needing??

many THANKS!!!

Yeah it's 45$ for the full car (not per person) so you could split the cost between a few people.

Some tour groups also organize bar hoping tours so you could do one of those too.

Yes many other people have used the ipod docking station.

I'm pretty sure I noticed it takes either C or D batteries. Maybe somebody else can confirm for you

Hi Ladies! My FH would like to organize a golf outing for he and his buddies? Has anyone done this? Does anyone know what golf course is closest to the resort? I know there is one at the Fairmont Mayakoba but that is quite a ways away. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks.
I did extensive research on all the golf courses and put all the info in my newsletter. If you don't have a copy yet, there are instructions for downloading in on the first page in the member contributions section (I couldn't attach it here because it's too big)

I found that some of the info in that other pdf document about the resort isn't quite accurate

hey ladies...during my meeting with Landy she told me to put together a song list for the DJ to play at my reception. sounds easy, but actually I'm finding it kind of difficult. so...looking for some help. i want to play nice, mellow, slow music from 6:30-8pm during dinner, then need a cake cutting song, and then dance music. was thinking we'd try to play the wedding songs of our guests during the dinner hour, so that will require some research on my part, but would love suggestions for the rest of the list/night. can anyone get me started? TIA!!!

Ohh, love the idea of playing your guests' wedding songs! That's awesome. As for the rest, I can't help in that area, but why not check other parts of the forum since it's not really a question specific to DT. I know I've seen a bunch of other threads about wedding music before. Just a suggestion in case you don't get enough responses here.

I know what you mean, I started my music list too, and it is soooo hard. I realized that a lot of the songs I was adding are songs I like but are not what I was really looking for in music for dinner and reception. I googled beach wedding playlists and am going through all of those for ideas. I really like your idea of playing the guests wedding songs and maybe have each guest suggest a song they like as well.

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
