    Diva -
    I was there Nov 09 and stayed in building 4. I didn't really notice the smell while I was there, but the must was definitely in all of my clothes when I got back. I actually take a big whiff of my makeup brush once and while and can still smell punta cana, haha!

      TROSE,
      I would probably go with white. Can you add sashes to these chairs? Also, how much are they charging you per chair?

        The rooms were definitely musty, some worse than others. My mother in law has asthma and her room was really musty, but when she told the front desk, they changed her room immediately so that was good. Basically if you are unhappy with anything, just tell them. They are there to make you happy and strive to do so.

          Yes you can put sashes on them. You can google pictures of chiavari chairs with sashes. The price is a little high 7 dollars/chair.

            My friends got married here in 2007. I stayed for one week. If I can answer any questions, from my experience, let me know.

              Trvlrs: I went with Nora Bohanon! She is a BDW vendor and does EXCELLENT work! She books pretty fast, so take a look at her site to see if she is still available for your dates Nora's Wedding Blog International Destination Wedding Photography

                Hmmm my stepmother has asthma too, so I will definitely let my TA know. Also, are the rooms super outdated?

                  I have been dealing with Ana with my wedding coordinator & she has responded promptly to every email I send her. I've actually tried to stop sending her quite so many! LOL! I've emailed photosouvenir twice with questions & they have also been very prompt in their response. I hate to hear that you girls are having trouble getting in touch with people!

                    Hey ladies, I am looking at chair sashes and I notice that they are used at the ceremony AND the reception. Are they 2 different sets, or does the site WC move them and set them up for you?

                    Basically if I have 30 guests, do I need to just buy the 30 sashes, or 60?

                    Make sense?

                      Diva-

                      Just 30, they move them for you at no extra cost. Also about the rooms being outdated, my guests and I thought they were great..the only complaint is the beds are definitely hard. Not a bed I wanted to spend all day in which was fine because we hardly spent anytime in our rooms except to go to bed
