That sucks! But the beach gazebo is far enough away from where the beach party takes place that you would still have privacy, you just wouldn't have the bar right there. You should ask her if they will open the pool bar for you, that's the next closest bar.

That is great to know, I was wondering where it was located in relation to the beach party. I'll ask Chandlyn about the pool bar. Thank you, I was starting to worry about what to do.

I am having my dinner and reception by the pool and they set up a full bar for us so if you have it at the beach gazebo I am sure they can set up a full bar there for you.. would not hurt to ask!

We're doing our dance reception by the poolside. Does anyone have pics? I had originally chosen the seagrape, but was disappointed to find out about the sand fleas & the extra charge if we wanted a dancefloor put in.

 

I'm good to go with the poolside, but I wanna see some visuals!

I am also getting married on a Saturday and was told that I cannot have my reception at Seagrape because of the beach party. We are planning the poolside reception as well, but I'm a little nervous being that there are no pictures!! The only other options are the Plantation and the disco. For now, I guess we will stick with the poolside... I hope whoever goes next has a poolside reception or at least sees one and can give some input!!

How long do you get the seagrape for if you book it? Do they give chairs or is that extra? What does the bonfire include for $150?? Is it just fire or do you get anything else?

I am not sure about the bonfire (even though my reception is there sad.gif ) But I know the price for the seagrape is actually $10 per person and if you want chairs and tables it is an extra $5 per person.

Our reception was moved from the Seagrape and was set up directly next to the beach gazebo and we were so pleased. It was very private, the only non guests around were the people whose rooms were right there and we were one of them so it was fine. About the bonfire, you get just the set up and bonfire for $150.00. We paid for the bonfire but it had rained earlier that day so the wood was wet and wouldn't light but no biggie really. At that point we were having a great time and didn't bother to get our money back because it wasn't their fault. But had the bonfire worked it would have been worth it.

Hey there, I am having a beach reception after dinner at Mammee Bay. Can you tell me how they set it up? Are there table cloths on the tables? Do they put any candles or anything like that? Did they put up tiki torches, and if so, how many?

Sorry, so many questions...I need to buy candle holders but don't know how many cuz don't know how many tables they put out and if it's looks funny with just one or would i need more than one candle per table? They are small votive candles.

Any pictures would be appreciated wink.gif

ps. I leave one week from today....please help! lol

    • 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?
