Hey kimmysue,

my wedding is also in November, but Ana sent me the planning form as soon as we put our deposit down. We are also doing exactly what you are doing - cocktail hour, dinner, and then dancing at the club.

 

Thanks for the info on the napkin sale, I've had my eye on a few sites waiting for a deal!

We're not having a traditional reception....just the cocktail hour (2 hours actually) and then a plated dinner. Dancing at the dance club after, so we'll have our two signature cocktails at the cocktail hour. I'm planning on making cute menus for the cocktails and framing them. Ordered our personalized cocktail napkins yesterday.....the knot is having a big sale through today on them!

After consideration of many resorts in the Riviera Maya area, I have put a reservation on May 7, 2011 at Now Jade Riviera Cancun. It does get excellent reviews on tripadvisor, expedia, etc. There have been some minor complaints, such as waiting long at restaurants, some say weak drinks, some say not enough nightlife. But, hey, every place is going to have some complaints. The main reason I chose it was because it is a good value for the guests, the place has a modern decor and appears to have been recently updated, and the venues for the wedding ceremony and reception look great. I have been working with Jill from Sand and Sun Vacations, whom I found here, and she has been great. I can't wait to hear what you guys think after your site visits. I think we'll be making one in August.

-Michelle

melissa - castaways is different from the terraces.  carnival terrace is the same as festival terrace - castways is the restaurant BEHIND the buffet, facing the pool :)

Yes, I received that form, but don't remember it asking about signature drinks. I suppose I should pull that out and look at it! What day are you getting married? We're November 4 @ 4pm.

Yay! We've got a group of 50 coming so far, and we haven't sent our invites yet! My FI and I will be at the resort through that Thursday. I think I'm bringing white chair bows, if you want them when I'm done. I'd prefer the solid white chairs, but I don't really want to pay $7/chair. I'm too cheap. :)

Signature drinks are free as long as they include the liquor they already have at the resort.

    • 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
