I would get a DJ.. i am inviting about 100 ppl to my wedding knowing most will not come but i think a DJ is good anyway because the peopl who do come are expecting to be dancing and partying ( i assume) im going with a DJ no matter what.. so thats my advice ;)

From my understanding if u are having it outside on the pool deck u have to do a buffet. By pool deck do u mean the deck infront of the main pool or jsut the grounds around the pool? Either way my coordinator told me it is buffet only! Im going with the deck becasue I dont mind the buffet.. i think its more relaxed and lets people choose when they want to eat

Maybe some of you can help me out with this because i have no idea what Gina is saying in her email to me because of her broken english! For selecting the menu she emailed me the silver and gold plates to choose from, so can i pick any soup and any salad from both lists? Also i know we have to tell her what entree each guests wants can they choose from all 8? or do i pick 2 different ones and they can only choose from the 2 i select? ahhhh im probably not explaining this correctly hopefully someone understands me and can help me out! I wish we could just do a buffet it would be way easier, but she told us u have to have at least 30 people to do that, and we only have 18. Thanks ladies!

I had the same question too.

I chose the Silver menu.  Then I asked Evangelina if we could pick and chose certain items from option 1 and option 2 (basically, if we could mix and match)...she said yes so we basically designed our menu from all the Silver options listed.  I also asked if we (my fiance and I) were to choose 2 entrees and have our guests order at the reception. She told us we were to pick one, which seems weird to me. We chose a fish as our main entree and my fiance suggested that we put a "nutritinal disclaimer" on our wedding site, letting our guests know that if they have allergies to fish or anything, they need to tell us.

If anyone else has any insight, i'd reallyl ike to hear what your menu plans are!

Thanks!

Kate

I have an aversion to mushrooms so we chose off the gold menu and mixed and matched.  I asked if it was allowed and Yamina said yes.  I ordered menu cards and everything off etsy so I hope that she doesn't go back on her word!

I divided up the flowers between my bridesmaids and they carried theirs on in a box in their luggage - My now husband carried mine on in his carry on and all the bouts and moms wrist corsages fit in a tiny box that I was able to stick in my suite case - they fluffed up perfect at the hotel with a little tweeking.  Don't stress to much over it as long as you have a little protection you are good to go.

I did my own hair and make up for the trash the dress, my hair was just scrunched and pinned up and I did my normal make up that day. + waterproof mascara and eyeliner ;)

 

So excited you changed your mind to do it.  Best thing we did! plus you are more calm and relaxed as you can tell from my photos

This is great! Thanks again. I have one question, and I'm sorry if you've mentioned this before, but is that the pool terrace or the pool deck?

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
