    Hi! Congrats! so I was thinking of not doing too much decorating I am getting married at the Gazebo, steakhouse for dinner and wet bar reception. do you think the scenery is decor enough? I plan on doing very little maybe a runner on the dinner table a some pretty table cloths with candles for the reception.

      I bought Poms off etsy and chair sashes from Ebay....our WC didnt charge us to set it up and it was amazing! We are minimalist and the decor is enough.  I am not sure what your budget is, but I would HIGHLY reccomend having your reception at La Barcaza, we did and our guests LOVED the break from the resort food and the cost was far less than doing it at the resort.

       

      Steakhouse is the best option, it was the only restaurant my guests liked, make sure you talk to the WC, our guests loved the Cowboy Ribeye, but it wasnt part of the wedding dinner package...they made a few exceptions for us, but said it was something we should have asked the WC.

        I thought about La Barcaza but I want people to have the option to go back to their rooms and we have some toddlers coming. I will still keep it in mind and talk to the fiance about it since I really liked the idea.

          It honestly went by so fast, my 5 year old loved it as well as the other 2 kids that came along. Everyone who went said it was the best part of the whole week, you wont be disappointed

              Our wedding was at 11am, the buses picked us up at 1am, we got back to the resort around 5pm, our guests rested then we went to the steakhouse for dinner, since it was included.  The WC will also allow you to do the dinner on another day other than the wedding day, its your choice.

                  Thank you! We have over 70 people already, so I don't think we can make a reservation that morning :) we would need some kind of semi-private area...I have an email out to the WC, so we will see what she says. I was wondering if anyone did something like this and how much they paid, or, does anyone have any suggestions for some type of unique excursion or something we can do in lieu of a traditional welcome dinner?

                    You can do your welcome dinner on the boat  la barazca punt cana ( I think I misspelled it) but people really like it they have a website.
