    Hi all, I'm Darryl and am getting married at the Riu Bachata in Puerto Plata, DR on March 16th/10.

    I'm hoping some can answer some questions and provide some help.

    Everything is booked and what not. We have approx 45 people going and I have some questions regarding supper and after supper.

    First of all, I think I was told that with this large of a group, we'd have a private dinner. I guess my question is what about after supper? Is there anywhere that you can book for a reception/dance? I guess I'd rather not have my wedding guests leave after supper and disappear to another location because we have nowhere to go.

    What have people done in the past? Suggestions?

    We are also having a lot of trouble trying to reach someone at the resort. We've tried each and every email address available for wedding coordinators without any luck. We haven't been able to get a response at all.

    Another question is in regards to our documents that we have had translated. One site suggests that we must mail this before we arrive, and another states it has to be brought with us? Can anyone verify this info for us? I find it hard to believe that we'd have to email them?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
