Do any of you know if Jellyfish charges a vendor fees? I am thinking of using Katya as our photgrapher, so I just want to know if I need to budget in the vendor fee or not.

 

Thanks a bunch.

Hi there - Jellyfish does not charge vendor fees.

 

Katya is my photgrapher too, I will be paying for her dinner though.

 

Best,

Melissa

No vendor fees at Jellyfish. Especially not with Katya, she practically owns the wedding photography business at Jellyfish. Lots of the brides seem to go with her.

I would rather write one email with all my concerns in hopes to get a long reply back that way I won't have to bother her as often. I heard a while back of a spreadsheet that was going around and it seemed rather helpful to communicate all concerns to Mayte. Can someone forward this to me? Or recommend the best way to get all my answers from Mayte? My email is Daniaterronwedding@gmail.com

Hey Dania97, I just sent you my wedding outline. I do hope it helps :) Let me know if you have any questions as I can answer just about anything regarding the Jellyfish. I try to check on here several times a week but if anything just PM and I will get it right away via my email. Happy Planning!

Hey Ladies,

 

Just wanted to put myself out there in case some of you have a ton of questions or just need some guidance. I am a personal friend of Mayte's and know just about everything there is to know regarding the JF. Whatever I do not know I will always direct you to Mayte or find out the answer to your question(s) when time permits.

 

Mayte answers emails based on priority of your wedding dates and she truly does get over 100 emails a day! The busy season has already started and there are some weeks ahead where she has a wedding everyday... that means that she will have to balance arranging the wedding for that day from 8am until quite late at night (this does not include having to meet with each bride for their pre-meeting). So have patience, especially if your wedding is not until next year.  She answers most of her mail based on how close your wedding date is.... the closer it is the more detailed her emails will be, otherwise expect short responses for the time being.

 

With that said I don't mind helping wherever I can with whatever I can. Please feel free to use me as a resource :) I try to check this website every other day but if you want to reach me sooner just PM me and I will get it directly. Many of you have been asking me some amazing questions in my PM (private mail) that I am sure many others would love to hear the answer to as well, so I do suggest you write the more generic questions on the main page that way everyone can gain knowledge from the answers.

 

I really enjoy giving back to everyone since everyone was here for me in my time of need :)

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful time planning!

 

Warmest Regards,

AR-DreamWedding

 

P.S: I also have a wedding outline that I created and used for my wedding that I am willing to share with anyone who thinks they may need some help organizing their thoughts. Just let me know if you need it!

Hey chicas!

 

Does anyone have pricing info for Jellyfish or know if they can accommodate 100-125 people? I was almost set to book at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe but then I came across the Nuestra Senora del Pilar Catholic Church and the Jellyfish restaurant. With such a large party I am searching for ways to keep costs down and though perhaps this restaurant may be less expensive than having the entire event at a resort.

It's not necessarily less expensive. But you are getting alot more for your money. No nickel and diming like at the resort. Plus you get exclusivity for the most part. In the resort thou see multiple brides on your day. Jellyfish Lso does not cut you off at 10 pm. Most resorts do , and send you to the club. They can accommodate that amount of people but I wouldn't go bigger than that. But no worries, you'll figure out soon enough. If you invite 100 ( which I did ) everyone will say they are going until its actually time to pay . Lol

Very true Deep!! People claim they are coming but as soon as it's time to pay...they complain about the cost in our case.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
