    EPC brides: Not sure if it's OK to start a new thread or not & I hope I'm not offending anyone but I just thought it was really tough to navigate the old thread which was started FOREVER ago! Hope nobody minds!

      I like this idea. On a few other forums I'm on, after a certain number of pages, we start a new thread (sometimes entitled Version 2.0, 3.0, etc.) so it's easier to sort through.

      Maybe a mod can even indicate the to-from date of posts in the previous thread and put that in the title (if not too much trouble)? For example "Excellence Punta Cana - 1/1/2008-4/25/2010. Will make everything very organized.

          I think I'm going to be the queen of odd questions! LOL! I figured I'd try this post first before I posted a new thread with the title of 'mosquitoes'. Does anyone know if the mosquito's are a year-round problem in Punta Cana? I've read several posts about them & was just curious.

            I went in October and there were none but at our wedding in November they were pretty bad. think it depends on the rain and the wind. Either way bring deet.

              I think I've asked a similar question before..but I'm curious about the chairs that they use for the ceremony/reception. It looks like they are lawn chairs..are there any other chairs available? Also how do chair sashes work on lawn chairs?

                I am curious about that also. I thought about hooking the sashes around the bottom near the seat or something. I like the look of the tie but I'm not sure how that would work on those chairs.

                  Looks like most brides had them pinned/attached somehow. The chairs look like they are pretty low at the back.

                    I've decided to rent chavari chairs from a local vendor in punta cana..they have white, gold, black and red. What color would you guys choose for an outdoor reception?

                      about the mosquito question...My wedding was in April and they were pretty bad at night. I brought bug spray and was fine, only a few bites the whole trip. But even though I told guests in my pre-wedding package to bring some, many forgot and got eaten alive especially at night near the discoteca. I actually changed my reception from the cascade pool to the Toscana restaurant the day of the wedding because I was worried about the mosquitos. At first I was really upset because I really wanted it by the pool, but it was one of the best decisions I made. Inside there were no bugs, there was A/C and the party was able to continue well past 10pm b/c we weren't near any guest rooms. It was also nice to change it up since I had the wedding on the beach and the cocktail hour on the beach also. We saw our photographer Fran from photosouvenirs the next night and he was taking pictures for another wedding that had their reception near the cascade pool and he said he was miserable because the mosquitos were so bad. So i definitely think it depends on the time of year, but no matter what be prepared and bring bug spray.
