      would love it if you can send me her info..

      thanks a bunch!!!
      Hey her name is Flori and the contact is weddingboatpuntacana@hotmail.com
      You can also look at the weddingboatpuntacana.com as well. There is pictures and stuff!

      Its $55 per person. I believe the min is 20. I'm not sure what the max is.
      I have 26 ppl and we are the only group.

      We had to send a deposit to secure our spot and pay the rest when we get there.

        As for flowers I went to micheals as well and made some really nice bridesmaid ones. I couldn't stand the fact that they were $50 US each! I didn't make myself one because I know that one was included. She sent me some pictures of the ones they have and I matched the colours to the bridesmaid ones. I hope it works out!

        I think I will get my hair done there. I will bring a picture for sure. I'm so bad at doing my own hair.

          i went to wedding there last april. there were 54 of us in attendance for it. everyone had a great time from what i know.

          the ceremony was at the gazebo...and like someone else posted earlier it is set up a bit awkward where the bride/groom & wedding party are up higher and the guests down below. the aisle walking up to it is not down the middle, but around to the left side. they had a a legal ceremony and the WC read the script in spanish then english. the only thing the bride/groom said was 'i do' and sign the papers. it was a little hard to understand at times due to her heavy accent and the low volume on the microphone. they had a trio playing music at the end which was fun and we all drank champagne & did some group photos. it is right on the path where the trolley cart goes by so it's not very private. however...i will say...it was still beautiful. i saw a couple of weddings on the beach that week and there were way more people around than the gazebo. at least the area is a little more closed off. the beach ceremony had people sitting in chairs 5 ft from the ceremony in their speedos. that's a bit too much.

          we had dinner at one of the buffets...we had a section closed off for us...and ate before they opened it up to the rest of the guests at the resort. the food was good, the table was set up in a U-shape. there was a guy playing piano on a boat going up and down the canal (or whatever that was) and some guests got up and danced. afterwards we all went to the lobby and had some drinks...some went to bed some of us to the disco to party some more.

          if you have any more specific questions about the resort don't hestitate to ask.

            I'm so frustrated. I leave in less then a week. I have been emailing the WC and she will not respond to my question.
            She usually responds in less then two days but this has been 3 weeks and I can't get an answer.

            I want to know the total cost of my wedding. I will be using travellers checks and I need to know with the add ons.

            She responed before telling me the cost of the actual package but its the add ons I was asking. This makes me worried that she is unaware now of add ons such as the carribian trio.

            Does anyone have the recent package prices with the add ons so I can get a rough idea? Apparently the one I was going by from last year has changed.

                Thanks so much! I found it on the website after I put that and forgot to update!
                She emailed me back as well. I think this is a busy time.

                I leave this thursday!

                  I just got back from my wedding and I thought it was perfect.
                  Everything I ever imagined.

                  I honestly don't know who makes reviews on trip advisor.
                  The resort was very nice. The staff was beyond friendly.

                  I had it right on the beach and it was perfect. They do it off to the side so there isn't too many guests. Apparently a few were watching but I never noticed. I have tonnes of pictures and not one other guest is in any pics.
                  I also saw a couple at the gazeboo and they were wonderful as well.

                  Francelia is a sweetheart.

                  It was everything I dreamed of. I recommend doing the wedding boat for the reception. It made our wedding so much more special. It was private and romantic.

                  If anyone has any questions I will be happy to answer : )

                    I'm getting married there in July. I would love some info about your weddings! I have emailed Francelia and haven't really gotten back great details. Has anyone had the Private Beach party?
