I also am planning a wedding at the Barcelo with Ariana. She is awsome and has answered every email quickly. I also booked the bonfire and beach party.
I am only wondering what the cakes and flowers and decorations look like. Does anyone have any pictures or descriptions? or Pictures of their wedding?

There are three hotels there. The Palace deluxe has seperate packages than the Punta Cana and the domnincan beach resort. Ariana, works at the Punta Cana hotel.
There are several packages on the websites and if you scoll through and choose each hotel you will see different package choices based on the hotel. Also, if you are looking to get more for your money, you can book a symbolic wedding (which is not legal) then later get legally married in your home town.

Just had my wedding at Barcelo Punta Cana (Ariana is the wedding coordinator there). Everything turned out beautiful and I was so happy with everything. As far as the flower selection, more than likely Ariana will email you pics via email but as far as any final selections she will do that with you when you go to Punta Cana for your wedding. We met with her 3 days before the wedding to finalize everything. I personally went on my own with the flowers. I had over 80 people go to the wedding. When we originally planned this wedding we honestly thought maybe 30-40 people would attend at the most. So we had the ceremony, then cocktail hour, afterwards a reception with dinner buffet. I went to a local florist in Bavaro (only about 15 minutes away from the resort and the owner of the florist picked us up and took us to her shop sho we can pick everything). They have great prices. But I decided to go to a florist because I know Barcelo would have charged a lot more for everything I ordered. Ariana will show you really nice arrangements and bouquets. We ordered floral arrangements to decorate the ceremony area, like 12 centerpieces, our head table was decorated, the main entrance to El Paris (resturant we rented for the reception) was also decorated with floral arrangements, candles, flower petals, etc. Afterwards we had a beach party with the dj, bar/bartender and opted for lights instead of the bonfire. It was so hot when we got married late last month. The lights were cool because it felt like an outdoor club/party.
If you're having something small I would stick with what Arianna has but if you're having a big wedding I would recommend going to a florist and they will work with Ariana too to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Dania and Dru--
Thank you so much for sharing all that info--it's a huge relief to hear that someone else's there went well. I would love to see the pics!
What is the beach party I keep hearing about? Also, what florist in Bavaro did you go to?

Hi. We went to El Tronco. Wonderful people there. The owner picked us up at the resort. And talk about great service.....they put centerpieces together right on the spot. I can forward you the info if you'd like. The resort gives you the option of having a beach party. If you have the reception in El Marlin they will let you have the reception till midnight. I had my reception in El Paris because it's bigger. And I could only keep the reception there till 10:30 because that restaurant is in the main resort building on the 1st floor. They don't want parties disturbing the peace. So after 10:30 we all headed out to the beach (ceremony area), had a DJ and full bar with bartender and kept partying We had an awesome time.
