    TLC-

    Thanks for the confirmation of accepting CC's for meals! That makes for less cash that we'll need to carry with us. We can carry money for taxi fares and such, but considering we were going to do the big surf n turf with drinks etc. we really weren't crazy about carrying that in addition to what need to have on hand to pay the photog and the priest.

      I agree and it's really dangerous traveling with a lot of cash.

        Also, when you get your photos back- will you make sure to post them? I think the Jellyfish would make an awesome and unique place for a wedding...I wish I could do it

          meli,

          what package were you planning to go with at ppc if you were having your reception there? i haven't done all of the calculation yet, but im not sure how jellyfish would be less expensive. they charge for decorating, transporation, and then food. are you doing a dinner reception or appetizers? i need to run my numbers to see if its cheaper. i do like the no time limit. what are you doing to after dinner? will the guest stay their to dance, etc?

            Originally we were doing the Aqua package and they charge $60 for each person over 20 in addition to the $3000 package price (and additional fees for DJ, sound system, dancefloor in ballroom etc.). I have 45 people coming. I don't have the calculations with me but it came out to slightly cheaper at Jelly Fish. The price difference wasn't very big (less than $1000). It's the no time limit that made me go with them. I have friends and family coming from all over and we haven't seen each other in a while. I don't want to feel rushed. We are doing dinner there and then staying to dance. We've booked a DJ through Jelly Fish and have the downstairs section to ourselves.

              Hi girls! I am also doing my wedding at the Jellyfish February 26, 2011. I am doing both the ceremony and reception there. I was just wondering how Mayte has been with geting back to you. One week she is great and than it takes her a week or two to gget back to me another time!

              www.steingardstudios.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut back on the travel costs.

              PM me if you are getting married...

                Same here. Sometimes she's really quick and other times it take her a while to get back to me. I imagine she's very busy given how popular the restaurant seems to be. If you're on gmail you can also gchat with her. She's on pretty regularly.

                  She has been pretty good getting back to me, usually within a couple of days.

                  This question may have been answered, but are there any complaints about the food at Jellyfish?

                    I heard the food is awesome and much better than the hotel food. There are some people on trip advisor who complained about the food but you are never going to please everyone. Im just hoping people will be having so much fun that the food won't be the most important part! I definitely dont think the dominican is known for its food, unfortunately. I hope the beautiful beaches make up for it.

                    Is anyone doing the ceremony and reception at the jellyfish?

                      Great to hear! I'm thinking about doing just the reception there but is it worthwhile paying $1000 to have the entire restaurant to yourself? I'm having about 45 guests and Mayte said it would be held downstairs (dancing and all)...would there be other guests dining there as well if I don't pay $1000? I'm on a tight budget and definitely want to cut costs where ever I can.

                      Thanks,
                      Lisa
