They have a speaker system you can hook an ipod up to.

We also had the dominican band for one hour instead of the mariachi trio. The dominican band got everyone moving and we did the conga, limbo, played their instruments and frolicked in the sand lol!! It was great..after that we had our music on cds that played from the speakers. We also had it on the ipod in case. Everything worked like a charm!

I am looking for favor ideas that travel well. Did you guys have goodie bags for your guests, or just one favor? Basically we want somthing that is travel friendly and wont take up TOO much room in our luggage. Ideas

We had clear bag monogrammed with our names and date in our wedding colors and stuffed them with monogrammed frisbees (loved this), oriental trading fans, spanish phrasebooks (from amazon), Bliss Skincare travel set, bug repellant packets, bath and body works mini-antibacterial gel, a dominican republic magnet, and a dominican republic natural plant photo album (the last two from Nancy's shop near Excellence) We packed them the day of the rehearsal dinner and Ana came to pick them up.
The travel skin care sets were heavy, but the frisbees do take up a decent amt of room but weigh very little which is nice. I bet alot of people couldn't care less about the bags, but I'm sure some did! lol
If you don't want to make or bring bags due to restricted luggage space, you can offer the female guests a complimentary manicure at the spa (pretty much equals the price of one finished welcome bag).

Totally unrelated, but I notice on a lot of people's pics the chairs for guests are covered with white chair covers and blue bows. Is this something they have onsite? Is there an extra fee for chair coverings?
We are getting the Gold wedding package, so anyone who got that one and has tips of ANY sort, please let me know.

I think they always put the white chair covers unless you specify differently. I don't think there is a charge for that. I'm pretty sure there is a charge for the chair bows. We brought royal blue ones so we didn't have to pay per chair bow and I left them there, even some unopened packages. I do think they charge per chair bow though, I guess for labor.
We also had the gold package. It was just amazing all around. I figured all the packages were so cheap, might as well splurge for the best one! LOL
If you have any questions about the package, feel free to ask.

Also, I am REALLY shocked that you don't pay ANYTHING until you show up! I received my confirmation and booking number, but I am still a little leery about it since no deposit was required for the actual wedding package. Is this everyone else's experience too?
I am 100% sure I will have way more questions along the way

I got my bows on Ebay..they were cheap.
My wedding reception was on the beach. We danced in the sand =). We danced and partied really hard, oh yes! LOL I am not sure about inside the restaurants..I wouldn't think its an extra cost.
We did not pay for the wedding until after it was over. They just added the bill to our room. There is no deposit for this resort.
One thing I can tell you is that the staff there go above and beyond to make your wedding day and honeymoon a dream come true! Excellence has some of the friendliest people we ever met. Ana is a truly amazing person and I don't know Lisbeth that well, but she seems so sweet. She helped Ana with my wedding. I've been to this resort 3 times already and are planning on 4th trip soon!!
