    I'm not sure about our nails, I will for sure have our hair done. As of right now I'm not sure of how many BM I will have. My date 10/11/12. I still have some time. But as soon as I do know I will schedule our hair apps. I think they have many weddings a day and the salon/spa books up quick.

      Hi Ladies,

      I am also booked at Ocean Blue, my wedding date is Feb 8, 2012.  I have been working with my travel agent who has provided me with all the material. It sounds like our ceremony is at 1pm.  Has anyone gotten married at this time, if so did many of the guests hit the beach and pool after and then get dressed again for the evening or did the party go from the ceremony right into the night. Just wondering how did the overall day go.. Were brining our ipod and djing our own music.  Any suggestions on where to host the dance/party – i don’t mind it public however i think ill have enough guests that we would fill a room nicely. 

      Truly im interested to know how the flow of the day went.. Does anyone have any input?

      My other dilemma is La Brasa is booked – That sucks... I have 36 confirmed right now and expect at least 10 more ppl.  I don’t want dinner too formal but i suspect there would be a few speeches.  Because the restaurants are open to all is there enough privacy for the speeches or is it something you do once the dance starts? Im really just trying to get an idea of the flow of the day..

      Thanks for all the great posts it has enabled me to ask the right questions when confirming details.

          @Anied - I'm debating between hiring a dj and just playing an iPod. Are you having someone actually 'run' the iPod, or just creating a playlist and playing? Trying to figure out the best option for us. Thanks!

            Hey Ladies!

            I am not planning my wedding at Ocean Blue and Sands but I attended one there about 2 years ago!  It was lovely, and was really the motivation behind our choosing Punta cana for our wedding spot.  We chose Paradisus as some of the same people will be attending our wedding, and I felt it was important to try something new!

             

            The wedding I attended was on the beach around 3pm and then followed by pictures and then a dinner reception at the beach restaurant (I forget the name at the moment). Dinner and service was good and it felt pretty private.  The beach ceremony was not so private and there were some onlookers, so be aware of this if privacy is important to you!

             

            There wasn't any real plan after the dinner, we mostly all ended up going to party the night away at the front lobby bar, so it was no big deal that there wasnt a formal dance reception planned.  There were about 30 of us, so we just brought the party atmosphere with us whereever we ended up!

              Attached is the spa services price sheet I have.  Also, La Brasa was booked for us also so we are paying extra to have a pool reception which I am really excited about :)
