I sent Pilar an email yesterday and asked her how much the buffet is per person, so I will let you know when I hear from her. I am getting married Dec 1st and will be bringing down somethings as well - my colours are very different from your though (fushcia, coral and apple green).

I have looked through the NOW wedding book several times and read through this entire thread. WOW...so many great ideas! I do have a few questions that I thought I would post on here. Any other suggestions or advice would be very much appreciated!

 

How much is the buffet per person ( I didnt even know this was a option)

For people who didnt hire a DJ, what are other options? If you bring an IPOD, do you have to rent the speakers? cost?

How are the decorations that the resort supplies? candles?

 

I feel like I am not sure where to begin. Money is an issue and we are on a budget. We also face the reality of both of us being young with no living parents to go to for advice and suggestions.

 

Thanks!

We didn't hire a DJ. Used our own ipod instead and had made playlists beforehand. The price for the sound system (speakers etc.) for the night is $150. We ended up getting ours for free though (thanks to Ana).

 

Since we were on a budget as well we did not buy or bring any decorations. I told Ana to set it up nicely to whatever decorations they would let us have for free. It was very pretty! Simple but pretty! She had vases filled with sand and shells with a candle inside, shells and starfish spread out on the table, white table cloths and napkins etc. She moved the chair bows to our reception which added some color and had even made a beautiful menu card in our colors and our names on it. I was very happy with it all. Then again, I was a pretty laid back bride, didn't feel like the decorations were the important part of our wedding.

 

Good luck!

How did everyone get their wedding decor to Mexico???  

 

I was thinking about packing it in one big box, checking it as luggage, and hoping nothing breaks!   

 

Did anyone have trouble with customs?

I havent had my wedding yet, but I was just at the UPS store and they sell cardboard suitcases for travel. They were only 10 bucks. I figured you can throw it away and not worry about bringing it back.

Hey girls! I'm getting married at Jade on November 4 and I'm using teal/aqua too! :) Little bit of a peacock theme, but nothing too crazy.

 

Question - is anyone planning to decorate w/ a version of white Christmas lights? We're having our dinner on the festival terrace and really want to use white lights, but I've not read that anyone mentioned it.

 

Anyone know?

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
