Yes dessert is also included (although ours ended up being kind of awful and almost nobody ate it.) Here is a photo of our cake so you can see the size. This is what is included in the package (this size anyway)

I am also deciding on a rehearsal dinner or welcome cocktail hour. We aren't going to have too many people with us so I feel like we probably would be going to dinner or to get drinks together anyways so I don't know if I need something scheduled.

 

Also, does the resort print out menus for the tables or do I have to do that?

The Festival Terrace is really pretty..but if the Buffet is open that night, then some of the other guests might see your wedding party and it may not seem as private. I had my wedding in the Bamboo room in Nov. and my guests were really thankful for the A/C after intense dancing! The Bamboo room also looks really pretty on its own without having to add any major decor.

Ana said she was going to print the menus...but I think she forgot so that was a bit unfortunate...but at least the food was good in the end! So if you want to be safe and you have the time..i'd print your own menus.

Hi All !

   I am considering Castaways for my reception location, but want to know how late it allows music/dancing. Also if anyone has pictures of a reception set up at the ocean terrace that would be great! You can email me at ahall5665@hotmail.com. I'm trying to decide between the two!

 

Thanks!!

 

Ashley

Hello ladies...

I was wondering if anyone had heard of or used sian photo?? I recieved a private message from someone who had no history telling me that they saw i had asked about a photographer and so they recommended sian photo to me, saying that they used them for their wedding. So i looked at the website and the photos were beautiful, and so i requested info. Something seemed off, i think they only accept cash??? Plus i didnt see anything on here about them... anyways just thought i would ask, or see if anyone had a similar experience? It could be nothing but my intuition said to just put it out there... Thanks ladies

Hello Again ladies!!! KimmySue or anyone else that has done this...I saw in pictures that you had striped straws and little banners with your date on the straws for the drinks at the cocktail hour...I am assuming you did this and not the resort...correct?

 

Thanks!! :)

can you tell me who sent you a message?  The company has been very shady and have joined this forum pretending to be brides and have tried to get other brides to use them.   I just posted a thread about them here: BEWARE: Sianphoto.com pretending to be Brides
 

We rarely making these big warnings about vendors but they have just been horrible with their tactics.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
