    Okay! I think I just figured out how to post a few pics lol...

     

    Ceremony setup

    Rose petal cones (they hung from each chair - see pic above; our guests showered us with petals during the recessional!)

    Lounge area for cocktail hour (just beside wedding ceremony location on beach)

    Reception seating chart (drink umbrella name tags in a cute sandbox)

    Reception decorations/setup

    Reception 2.jpg

     

    Centrepiece on reception tables

    Centrepieces.jpg

     

    Place settings (notice the attention to detail with the menus and napkin ties! You won't get this at a resort!)

    Cake (three-tier vanilla cake with layers of fresh mango pur©e...delicious)

    Cake.jpg

     

    The Jellyfish (view from the beach)

    My flowers (this was the thank you card we made for guests after the wedding; my boquet and husband's boutonniere came from the florist that Mayte works with; I got exactly what I requested...and orchids are super difficult to get the D.R.!)

    Thank You.jpg

     

    As you can see Mayte is a real pro. She actually told me last week she's averaging two weddings a day! She's that busy and she still gets every detail right...an absolute pleasure to work with :)

     

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

      VERY PRETTY!  I love your bouquet!  I'm requesting a cascading orchid bouquet.  Mayte gave me a quote, but since you said that Orchids are hard to come by in DR I'm a little worried.  Hopefully they can make it the way the picture is.  Also, did the flowers for your cake come from the same florist?

        Yes, I believe all of the flowers used for our entire wedding came from the same florist. Mayte also works with an awesome decorator, as you can see! Mayte had asked me for my "backup flowers" in case she couldn't get orchids (I'd told her orange or white lillies and birds of paradise), and they ended up using these flowers as well in the decorations, which I loved. You're in great hands with Mayte. I'm sure your wedding will be beautiful! Good luck with everything :)

          Just wondering reception costs vs. reception at PPR..... We are working on our guest list and wondering which is the better economical choice....

            I think it depends on the options you want.  For me, the cost is about the same if I had it at the resort or at the Jellyfish...  I think the Jellyfish comes out just a bit cheaper... However, the personalization and the privacy we get at the Jellyfish plus the extra options is worth sooo much more. 

             

            So I think it really depends on the feel you want your wedding to have.  I think for most brides though, the Jellyfish does come out to be a better price and value.

                  Would any ladies that have been married through Jellyfish, or are about to me married at Jellyfish mind sharing how much their wedding did/will cost? As well as share how many people you had/have? We just got our quote from Mayte and I think it's a good price, but I'd love to see what other people are paying as well.

                   

                  And does anyone have wedding quotes from resorts in the area as well? I'd love to see the comparison between the cost for a wedding at Jellyfish and one at a resort.

                    Thanks .... I kind of was getting that feeling. We are trying to figure out our guest list and determine how many people. This forum has been the best thing ever! So many amazing ideas and helpful tips for planning a destination wedding. Kelly

                      Hello Ladies,.

                       

                        I finally read through all 94 pages of this forum and I am ready to join the convo. We were originally planning on doing both our ceremony and reception at the Melia, but after coming across this forum and checking out the facebook page we are doing everything at the Jellyfish. Mayte has confirmed us for April 10, 2013. SO excited!! Can't wait to hear about more amazing weddings, and join in on the planning.
