Ocean Blue & Sand-Punta Cana

How did you find it as far as heat/humidity in the evening for dinner/reception?

 

The dinner was fine! There was a gorgeous breeze but it was still nice and warm out. It was the perfect weather - especially because we were all working up a sweat dancing. The ceremony was blistering hot though and most of the guests got sun-burnt.

 

 

Hey Ladies,

Anyone know if the Sand Extravaganza package includes plate/cutlery set up and table cloths.....or is it extra?? I saw in the extras pdf table covers, overlays and runners have a separate price.....does the package include basic set up and these options are their upgraded options?? Thanks

 

Set up in included - basic white tablecloths. They setup all my own decorations that I brought with me at no extra charge.

 

 

Just a heads up.. My wedding is four months away and I have only received five emails from the WC... Believe me I am freaking out. But as a dominican myself I know how the country works and things always get done some how.

 

Once everything is confirmed and booked, you won't get any emails from them. But everytime I had a question about something, I got a response . I always got responses from Yinette (never emailed with Ada) - sometimes a week later, most of the time a day or two later.

 

EVERYTHING worked out in the end!!!

I didn't have a lot. I brought down 12 paper lanterns & the LED throwies, as well as my centrepieces & candles.

One holder is bigger than the other and I brought two for each table (3 round tables; head table).

Paper lanterns hung on the La Brasa Terrace.

emives--- stunning!!  Did you request the Terrace? I have the Las Brasa reserved but not sure if there are 2 different set ups. Are the centerpeices glass? I'm worried about traveling with glass and it breaking.
I am trying not to do many "extras" as I am already over my budget!!

Yes. I specifically asked for the terrace. But if it had rained, it would have been inside La Brasa. You can probably arrange that when you get down there though, if you'd like it on the terrace. I strongly recommend it depending on the size of your group - we had 34 people and it fit a nice sized dance floor also. I didn't do ANYTHING extra. Just whatever came with the package. Actually, I had to rent the sound system for the reception but that is it. I wanted everything cheap.

 

The centrepieces are glass. I wrapped them individually in t-shirts and spread them between my luggage, my fiances and my mom's so they wouldn't break. My brothers-in-law carried the lanterns in their carry-on and I had the throwies in a zip-loc bag in my luggage.

Emives - I love the La Brasa Terrace set up! Do you think it will accomodate up to 50 people?

 

I think we are going to be at least 35 right now - but it's looking like even more! Eep!

When I first started planning, I didn't expect any more than 20. Now that I've booked our date/secured our travel it seems that people are jumping on board left and right :) I'm excited, but I just hope they all put their deposits in within the first 90 days (which is the deadline for the pricing we secured) so that I can have a good idea of total number, so I can start OOT bags!

 

April 11, 2013 can't come fast enough for me right now!

 

How is everyone else doing with their planning?

Hello emives, 

 

Who was your photographer.. Do you think it is worth getting an MC.

 

We used HDC Photo which is out of Punta Cana. They are FANTASTIC and I would 100% recommend them. We didn't hire an MC or DJ. We used our iPod to play the music and (thankfully!) my uncle attended the wedding who used to MC/DJ professionally so he took over. It definitely made the night more enjoyable.

 

Thanks Emives!! I think I will do the same!! How many ppl sit per table? What did you do for bridesmaids flowers? I'm thinking of making button bouquets. I'm carrying a brooch bouquet.

 

They sat 8 people at each table with one sitting 9. I made all of our bouquets but one came with the Sand extravaganza package. The one I picked fit with the rest that I made so we used it as a toss bouquet.

I don't know to be honest. Like I said above, the tables sit 8/9 people. I asked my husband and he thinks it would fit 50. Send a quick email to Yinette and ask would be my advice.
