    We had the Sand Extravaganza and yes, it is an open bar for the cocktail hour. The regular stuff though - not the premium brands.

      Yup, that's right.

       

      And for what it is worth - I booked my wedding a year in advance and booked the La Brasa Terrace for the reception because it's beachfront and I wanted to make sure I had it. Otherwise it is by the pool (if you have more than 50 guests, I believe) or La Tortuga (which is the indoors buffet). Yinette didn't give me any trouble when I asked for La Brasa that far in advance.

        Great to know! Thanks for the info!

        I'm going to inquire to Ada/Yinette about La Brasa :)

         

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

          Another question - how many guests did you have?

          Thanks!

            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

              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.

                What email address do you use? Do you communicate with Ada or Yinette?

                I've emailed Ada about 5 or 6 times over the past 4 weeks and always get a reply the same day.

                 

                Hang in there! You must be getting very excited for your big day :)

                  Hello Dominican Ally, 

                   

                  Yes, I am super excited I just can't wait any longer.  It does drive me crazy that I have to wait a whole week to move on with a decision. I have Yinette email. Can you please send me Ada email. I didn't know their were two WC. 

                   

                  By the way what photographer and florist are you using? You are probably way ahead of me in planning. I started planning in January. 

                   

                  Thank you so much for your help ..
