          Ladies,

           

          A FEW QUESTIONS ! :)

           

          -For the reception, (el patio is where we want ours) do they cover the tables with linens as apart of the cost? or is it extra for table linens?

          -What chairs do they use for the reception?

          -How much extra are chairs for ceremony/reception? (I have heard they give you 20 chairs for ceremony then you pay extra on top of that, per chair? is this true? Ill have about 35 guests)

          I am not planning on covering the chairs  - Ive seen photos of the white chairs in photos and they seem in good shape. I'll add a sash/bow on the back for colour but dont want the chair cover.

           

          ANY advice on the tables/chairs for reception would be helpful. I am not wanting super traditional reception style with white chair covers etc -  but if the chairs are wooden, and the tables are white pastics, i'll have to have them covered in linens and then i'll have to match up the chairs too. I am just unsure of what that looks like.

           

          I have NO idea what kind of tables they use for reception too, round/square - can you request which ones you want? I am wanting about 6 tables of 6 - and then a head table of just myself and groom because I didnt think El Patio could fit a big long head table with 12 ppl, but for those who have been there - can they accomodate a head table with 10 bridal party members?

           

           - I'd ask jacy but Im low on her priority list at this point and am hoping to get a faster response here from those who used El Patio?

           

          ALSO! - for those who have either seen or HAD a beach ceremony - do you get to choose your location on the beach? or do they have designated spots for this?

          We want ours with a decorated canopy and the photos Jacy sent me of beach weddings did NOT look very nicely located. One was right next to the gazebo, another was next to a palapa - im just unsure if people CHOSE those locations or if the choices are limited by the resort.

           

          I just want sand, not a lot of "stuff" nearby. I know since its a public beach, we can't have it TOO private, and we probably ARE in fact limited - which scares me a bit.

           

           

          Thank you to anyone who has a response to any of my questions! Much appreciated :)

            Jessica,

            if it's not too late, and you know what dress you want to order, I highly recommend http://www.bestbrida...alprices.com/.  I've ordered from them on more than one occasion, including bridesmaids dresses, and they were always excellent and the prices are great.

             

            I'm getting married at DPA September 2, 2011!!!!

              Tissey,

              did you end up having your wedding on the beach? I'm having my wedding almost exactly a year after you! (9/2/2011) and am also considering having my reception on the beach.

              The good news is that you don't have to actually decide until you get there.  Jacy told me that she will show us all the spots when we arrive and we can make our final decision after we have a chance to see it in person.  So I hope that helps put you at ease a bit.

                We are booking through Liberty Travel and it is going well, so far.  33 booked already for 9/2/11 wedding!  My friend just told me, who is having a Punta Cana wedding in June, that their travel agent out of Chicago is giving them a free flight and a free room if they have their guests book the travel through them. It's a nice perk, so you might want to ask your TA about that!  I know I'll be bugging ours!

She offers price matching, so I was able to shop deals online and she did everything in her power to make it just as affordable to book through her. I'm sure you could find a thread with a good checklist.  Everything I have is in magazines (such as the one on this site http://www.destinationweddingmag.com/) but I'm sure they have plenty of information even on their website.

                  I was told they give you round tables that seat 8/9 guests for reception.

                   

                  Do they accomodate a big long table for a head table? Any one here have a head table?

                   

                  Originally I just wanted our own table facing guests and allow wedding party to sit with their significat others - but i might still want the whole head table vibe...- just curious how it work for some of your receptions. I dont want a round table for a head table, lol.

                   

                  Thanks

                    Jacy told me they were 60" tables that are for 8-10 ppl. I also saw on there facebook page that they had a rectangle/square table that was set for 10 that looked like it could seat 12.

                      Hi Jessica,

                       

                      Have you found a dress? After I decided on the dress is when I really felt like it was just around the corner!! and now I only have 2 months to go!

                      Let me know how your AHR  planning is going. Are you still going with the roasted pig? Have you decided what you are serving with it?

                       

                      Thanks!

                       

                      Tracy
