    Hello Ladies!

    So, here's the basics:

    1. Amanda Amyotte
    2. January 16, 2010
    3. Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

    There are still a few aspects I'm struggling with, such as getting in contact with the photographers in the Dominican! I loved Seaprincess' review of the Grand Palladium and absolutely LOVED the photographer she used, Punta Cana Destination wedding photography. I've been trying to contact them for the past 2 weeks by email and by phone and I'm not able to get through! Any other leads would be much appreciated.

    We are 40 people going down for the wedding. I'm really indecisive about how to go about the reception/dance. We're a smaller group, so if we rent out one of the restaurants for the evening, will we end up migrating to the lobby bar and disco anyway? What about an MC and toasts? If we don't rent the restaurant out for the evening, how do we logistically do them? And what about our first dance?

    We also have the option to have the reception and dance on the beach with our own private bar and music. But, I'm concerned about the weather, as I think it gets quite windy on the beach in the evening. Does anyone have any comments?

    Is there anything else I should be booking before we head down there?

                  Amanda, congrats and welcome to BDW. Just decide what kind of reception you guys want and go from there. Good luck planning.

                    Congrats and welcome! I am the most indecisive bride ever and I find it helps if I chose one task and get it done, so I can check it off and move to the next. Good luck!
