    Are you doing the beach or gazebo ceremony? I had chosen the beach, but am growing concerned as I've seen some of the strange photos that people have there :)

    Hi Claire,
    Congrats! You must be getting very excited!!! I know the feeling...!
    We are having our ceremony under the gazebo as i think we will have a lot more privacy there. I have seen pictures of beach ceremonies and there are people sitting literally right beside your guests, on their beach chairs. The beach tends to get VERY busy! Have you seen the garden gazebo - it is quite pretty as well. There are a couple of them to choose from. Let me know if you would like me to send you pictures...
    Just over two months to go!!
    Are you bringing any of your own decor for the reception?

      We had our wedding ceremony at the gazebo November 16, 2009. I am soo glad we had it there and not on the beach. There is absolutely NO privacy on the beach-people literally stand right next to the aisle! Plus, the gazebo makes it more formal/special.

      I wouldn't be paying extra during the reception for drinks. It's an all-inclusive resort, for gosh sakes!!!! We had a private recption ($750USD) at the garden grille, and had all the drinks we could possibly consume until 10:30pm when the dinner ended. I guess if you want to stay at the restaurant after 10:30pm...but we all just headed up to the lobby bar to continue the party!

        Good call on not paying for the bar Natasha! Thanks for the heads up!

          In between the ceremony (4pm) and the reception(6pm) our guests not involved in pictures headed up to the lobby bar for some drinks.

            That's what I was thinking rather than paying for a cocktail/appy reception...I think people will appreciate the break from the sun! You did an I POK recpetion right Natasha? They had all the necessary hookups right?

              Melissa! So sorry - I've been a bad BDWer and didn't even see your message. I'm definitely getting excited now. Though I also have to admit, I've been taking a very laid-back approach to all of this.
              I would love to see photos of the gazebos if you have them handy.
              In terms of decorations, I have a few white paper lanterns that I bought from another BDWer - and that's it! I'm really determined not to fuss - I think it would just stress me out too much. I can't imagine doing all the work everyone on here is doing! Then again, it makes me feel like a real slug to not be doing all of it too
              A month to go for you. Ridiculous how time flies!!!

                i know this doesnt have to do with the menu of the bahia...but i have confirmed my date with them, sent in my deposit for the wedding package....now the info they sent me is stating i have to be @ the resort 3 days before the wedding.....but when i go to the DR governament sites for requirements to get married out there, it doesnt say anywhere about having to be there x amount of days before.....now if i get married on a friday, what day do i need to be there on? is arrival on a wed ok? or does it have to be a tues?

                  Hi, yes there is a minimum stay at the Dominican Republic for the weddings. I am scheduled to get married on a Saturday so we are arriving on Wed...That day we meet with the wedding coordinator who was Cynthia but I guess now is Jasmin/Patricia? and she is going to sit us down with books to finalize all the details. We also will be meeting with Pastor York to discuss wedding ceremony details. The Reception is at the Garden Grilll which I hear the food is great!!

                    i am also getting married at the gazebo and agree 100% about NOT getting married on the beach.

                    Thanks for the great input on the whole what to do after the 10:30 mark. I am also having a private dinner at the garden grill, and was a little torn up on what to do afterwards.

                    the lobby is a great idea.

                     

                    do you remember what you had for your dinner? the menu?

                    thanks again....! :)
