DMV!! :-P

Exactly JY!

 

I have people that don't drink, people who drink a lot, and potentially some underage so I have no idea what my happy medium is at this point!

Thanks for that info Ivendram!  I have so many picky eaters that I don't know how I would do a plated meal so i've been very concerned about that.  I thought about doing different packages for alcohol for the cocktail hour and after dinner too but i'm still not sure.  I'm thinking the tab might be the best option for the harder alcohols too. 

 

In regards to the bus is that $7/trip or just $7 and then that covers them to go to and from?

Thanks ladies, someone sent me the info - I really appreciate it.

That's a good question - $7 each way or $7 for the night?  I saw on the list that it said the bride gets separate transportation, which I am really excited about.

 

Which photog is everyone using?

 

I'm so excited, it's like 95% certain that we'll be booking our wedding at Jellyfish - it's exactly what my fiance and I wanted in a wedding!  I just hope it's not overbudget.  I think you can do it at any budget really since there are so many options, but I want to add everything! lol

Hi

Hey Meg!  First things first - you should email Mayte and send her a list of approximate dates so that she can get back to you with availability of the restaurant. Many dates are indeed booked well into 2015, but there are some that are still open.  Another amazing venue nearby that just started doing weddings is Huracan restaurant, more on that here: http://www.katyanovablog.com/huracan-cafe-punta-cana-wedding-alexandra-tyler/  HUGS,  K
Hi Katya, We are crossing our fingers for a date in January 2014 for the Jellyfish but know we may be out of luck, we are booked at Dreams Palm Beach and are now thinking about moving the reception off the resort. We are just wanting to find something less cookie cutter:) would you happen to have a contact for Huracan Cafe that you could share?

Hey,

It is $7.00 / person there and back (total).  We took a cab over for a tasting and it was $50 total for 2 of us so $7.00 there and back (total) is good.

We used Blue Lagoon.  We were nervous to use them because there weren't many reviews but the pics turned out amazing.  http://bluelagoonstudio.com/2013/07/laura-robert-jellyfish-restaurant/

They only put a few pics on their site from our wedding and I don't think they even picked the best ones to put up.  It was $1200 for all day (1pm - 8pm) and Manuel was our photographer.  He busted his butt to get every angle and capture as much as he could.  As a favour to our guests we had him take pics for and hour an a half before the ceremony of all the couples / families that came out.  My niece took pics of me and the girls getting ready while he took pics of the people who came out.

Hi Ladies,

 

I am also waiting to hear if there is any space open at the Jellyfish resteraunt in Janaury 2014. We are already booked at Dreams Palm Beach and when we started getting more into the planning I was blown away with the costs of everything at the resort.

 

I also want something a little more different and not so cookie cutter... I wish we had looked more online earlier because I am worried if we can ever find a place to is more us:(

 

Does anyone on here know of any other off resort venues? 

 

Thanks Ladies and congrats on your weddings and wish you all the luck with your special day at the Jellyfish!

Hello Brides,

 

We have a dilemma that we would like help with. 

Did anyone run a tab instead of an open bar? What was the cost? PM me if you don't want to publicly disclose. Thanks in advanced. 

Shavon

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
