here we walk you through their reception setup... Notice the globe details in the background... nice touch. Perhaps hanging a TAD low...

A table setup...Obviously, its night time and the ocean would be in the background from this angle looking out of the Seaside Grill (pool foreground is nice layering touch for photos)

This lounge setup is on the side of the reception area, kinda packed in. Luckily their group was kinda small, less than 25 people I think so this worked well!

Dance floor setup.. I think each one of those tiles is 4x4 or 5x5, cant remember. Total space of 10x10ish, lets say. Again, i think the globes were hanging a tad too low, for the tall people they were bumping heads with them a little.

Another scene setter back across the resort, just for a piece of mind to know what the night views look like :)

ok, hope that helps with your visualization.

SALUDOS,

Ohhhhh thanks - very pretty. I would love to use the Seaside Grill as a reception venue. Just not sure if our group is going to be small enough.

Here's the deal with that though - you won't know which restaurant until you get there and it is based on occupancy. So it can be done, but you'll have to have a plan b in case it doesn't work out.
Are you paying extra to have your welcome dinner in the closed down restaurant?

Princess - yes we're paying for a private event - we're doing the Caribbean buffet and the Caribbean trio for the welcome dinner and I don't remember the cost, but it's the same as the per person cost of the wedding reception. ($32 per person maybe?)

Does having the reception in one of the closed down restaurants cost extra? Seaside Grill looks great, we're having less than 25...maybe pool deck/terrace could be plan b?

I'm really intrested in getting these also. Can I ask how much she charges? Thanks!

I got an email from her that I can send you..but I believe two color maracas start at $4 then add $.25 for names, $.25 for date, and $.25 for location. So about 4.75 each, unless you want more detail to it. Then she has adorable tags that say "shake at the kiss" ( I am sure those are extra). They will ship right to the resort also. I really love them.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
