I just booked Corres films for my wedding. So excited. I have looked at all the options for months, and I have to say that Corres films looks the most consistently professional (no shaky digi-cam type shots for the whole thing!) I love their samples and I feel completely confident that they will do a great job. 

 

The 3-4 minute trailer comes free with their top package (gold), but can be added on to any other package. To me, this is the most important part so I will for sure be getting this. So easily shareable and I can recreate the emotion of the day in under 5 minutes. Awesome! 

 

I would definitely check them out!

Hi Ladies,

 

My first post!

 

I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a cost to have just the downstairs for the reception?  I know to rent the whole restaurant is $1000.

 

Also, did anyone try the local bar option?  If so, how was it?

 

Thanks!

Hey Ash,

 

Welcome to the board! If you're just using the downstairs, it is no extra cost... just the regular cost of decoration, which is $500 unless you are over 50 people.

 

As for trying the local bar, I have not been there yet but that is what I'm going with. From what I understand Mayte is so accomodating, that I'm going with that option but allowing people to order anything else and just adding that to the bill - I only have a few guests who would care enough to order the 'higher end' stuff :)

Hello JELLYFISH brides!!!

 

I just came back from my wedding there and I would have to say, it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! All the posts on this forum about Mayte and her ability to make your dream come true is exactly that and more!!! Everyone at the Jellyfish, especially Mayte, are very accommodating to your wishes, wants, and needs! A+++++++++!!! ALL.....and I literally mean ALL of my guests (83 of them) are still talking about the wonderful time they had especially at the Jellyfish! Everyone loved it! They are all still in awe of such a beautiful reception, beautifully decorated, amazing DJ and staff, and awesome MC! I will post a more in depth review in a couple of days, but I just want to let all you future Jellyfish brides....DO NOT WORRY! If Mayte doesn't respond right away, don't you worry...she will...her popularity for wedding coordinating is getting so big...she's becoming a very busy girl but she will nonetheless get back to you. Aside from taking care of her beautiful Luna, she is either taking care of her brides on their wedding day or running around for them to make sure each bride is getting exactly what they requested. She got exactly what I wanted and captured my vision and more. I'll leave you with some pictures of our day including some at the Jellyfish!

I HIGHLY recommend ***** Nova Photography!! Amazing couple that take beautiful photos and who are also set to get married at the Jellyfish as well in April!!! And being a bride herself, ***** understands and is VERY accommodating to your wishes and wants!  My videographer was Florian from Video Punta Cana, he did a wonderful job with my video as well :) Florian is very kind, nice, easy-going and a hard worker. If you are on a budget for Video and would still love to have good quality, I recommend him :) Once again, I'll post a more in depth review in a couple of days, in the meantime, enjoy!! :)

Thanks Astef!

 

I have been emailing back and forth with Mayte over the past few days.  She has not been hard to get a hold of so far.  Perhaps she's taking a break between weddings?

 

I like your idea of going with the local bar option and allowing guests to choose if they want something higher end. 

 

I am so glad I was advised to check out Jellyfish for the reception.  In the beginning, I wanted to have everything at the resort (Dreams Palm Beach) until I realized that the reception would be cut off at 10:30 and could only be 3 hours long.  Also, the taxes are CRAZY!

 

We're going to be having our ceremony and cocktail hour at Dreams Palm Beach and then over to Jellyfish for our reception.

 

I have yet to put down the 10% deposit because we're unsure of the estimated cost.  Mayte says my date is locked, so I hope everything will work out!

Astef,

 

I forgot to ask..

 

It looks as though you are doing your whole wedding at Jellyfish.  Does the beach ceremony fee of $500 include decor, and then another $500 fee for decor inside?  I'm just curious!  Thanks.

That's right there is one $500 fee for the ceremony setup and a $500 for the reception set up.

    • 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?
