        Hey...we went with Caribbean Emotions for photography and videography! Heard great things about them and great prices :-) On another note, does anyone know if the flowers for bride and bridesmaids bouquets real or fake??

        We also used Caribbean Emotions. They were great! The flowers are real and beautiful!

              Would love to see your pictures when you are back from your visit. Perhaps you could post them on the jellyfish facebook page (J.fish Brides)?  another great source if you haven't discovered it yet!!

                    Hello!

                     

                    I just returned from a trip to Punta Cana. We stayed at Hard Rock (it is awesome!) and toured 6 other resorts - Majestic Elegance, Dreams Palm Beach, Ocean Blue & Sand, Gran Bahia Principe Amber & Esmerelda, Now Laeimar, Secrets Royal Beach and The Jellyfish! It is awesome and pictures are attached!!! It's open and airy with lots of ambiance and right on the beach. It's a one lane bumpy ride in and out but definitely worth the ride. Mayte and I had planned to meet up but unfortunately my schedule was changed last minute and we missed each other. Mayte works individually with each couple but  she sent me an estimate of pricing so my brides booked at the Jellyfish could get an idea of pricing. Please see below. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me at patty@wrighttravelagency.com or 866-208-8681. Thanks! TA Patty  

                     

                    Hi Patty,

                     

                    I work under quotes, so personal for each bride, but I can give you a estimate or general for some things, after that, the brides send me pictures from things they like and I quote in base of that requires. I´m not like hotels has packages and after thake comision for everything, the quote I get, is the quote I charge. But for my experience I can make you a list for you know more or less:

                    For decor and ceremony set on the beach for less than 50 pax is around 1.500 us all included, names cards, menu cards in wedding colors and under the pictures of the bride, all is possible. No chrage for candles or colors.

                    Flowers: depend a lots for the type of flowers, roses are not the same price than orquids, and depends as well for the design.

                    petal bags: 12/15 us depends on the colors
                    Centerpieces : that is difficult, because it just depends on the design, quantity of flowers etc...

                    Cake: design, cover, decor... from 5 us to 7 us per person
                    Cup cakes: form 2 us small ones to 3.5 us the bigers ones.... more desserts are possibles.
