I will let some time pass and I will ask Tiara about it.

Hey Pink Petals,
Like I said, I'm fairly certain the extra cost for alcohol is only for beach receptions. You will not be charged at the SSG.

Here's an email I found from Tiara:

 

My email:

"Hi Tiara,

Hope you are well.

As you may recall, I am getting married on July 14 at 5:00 p.m. and we have booked the entire Seaside Grill for 6:00 p.m.

Will people be able to order drinks from the SSG bar for a half-hour or so until we take our photos? I am assuming since we have rented out the entire restaurant that there will not be an additional cost for our guests to drink from the bar?

Please confirm this"

 

Her response:

"The bar is included on the price.

Best regards,"

That's exactly what I'm doing. $350 for the arch from Tiara and I'm bringing my own tulle. Don't trust that it won't cost a lot extra to decorate. I'm just going to the fabric store and bringing down my own material.

 

Just waiting on Tiara to send me the dimensions of the structure.

I really can't believe they are charging $350 for a wooden arch!!!! They really do stick there arm in at every oportunity don't they. I was going to get married on the beach but I just refuse to pay anymore than absolutely nessessary, As we are coming from Ireland it is a 10 hour flight and £1300 per person, so we really have to reign the cost in somewhere. So when it says in the complimentary list "use of the gazebo and beach front area" Where exactly do you get at the beach front area? Because you pay for an arch you pay for the guppa and you pay for the wooden frame??

 

Sorry for yet another rant but the costs of this are just adding up and up and up and Tiara either doesn't answer or gives different answers!!!!

Hi, guys:)

 

SunandSand, sorry to hear about your troubles. You, me, and LizzyJane will definitely have to meet up and have a drink, like LJ said, when we are all there =) What day do you guys arrive and what day do you leave?

 

PinkPetals, so glad everything worked out and you finally have you date confirmed!!

 

Thanks everyone for help with the prices...if it wasn't for you girls, I think we would all be in for a surprise once we got there...lol.

I agree with LJ, $350. is crazy for a wooden arch! Is anyone else doing it on the beach and having something else or nothing?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
