Thank you so much - you have no idea how much that helps us. With all the different packages, etc, I feel like my mind is a jumble. Did you have the lights at the reception (I am starting to get weddings confused)? Blue lights with stars? If so, did the DJ provide or did you bring, buy etc? I really liked that, especially by the water. Thanks!

Don't just take this thread as your biggest source of research, I would strongly advise you go to tripadvisor and other sites such as that and read the reviews of guests who have stayed there (not only as a wedding, but all guests) and make sure that what you read is okay with you. Also, look at the pictures there on the site and make sure you like what you see. Just make sure to do research before you commit!

 

At any rate, we will go down there in June so I don't have expenses on extras for the ceremony yet, but we're slated to do the gold package which will cost us $1600 (there's a discount because of our rooms), we don't have any extra charges associated with the wedding ceremony itself from the resort. Our room is going to be just at 3k give or take for 9 days at the Exc in an Ocean view club suite. We are spending 5 days at Tortuga Bay- that was 3k. We have not booked our airfare because we're waiting for my residency match letter and until then I don't know where we'll be. But with the highest possible airfare, and including spending time at the spa and excursions we are on track to spend about 10k for the wedding. That doesn't include my dress, rings, etc. Just the wedding/honeymoon itself.

 

Hope that helped!

Hey All, I am wondering if anyone has every gotten the BBQ Beach Menu? I've attached it, I got it from Anna at Excellence because I was looking for something more social rather than a sit down formal dinner.

Also is anyone getting the DJ? What type of music does he play?

Thanks! cheesy.gif

Is this the one that she called the Dominican beach (or was it pool?) party? I got her to send me the menus to the restaurants, if anyone wants it reply and I'll get back to you. My PM box is running full- so PM's are not the best way to go.

I'm wondering if EPC has linens for the tables? And if they do what are the colors? I am just wondering if I should bring my own or not.

Thanks

The table linens, napkins and chair covers are all white. They have some chair sashes but if you ahve a specific color you want I would bring your own. I assumed they would have something and I ended up spending $2.50/sash when I could have bought them here for far less.
