 I am sure if you browsed around the different forums alot of the info is there.. I remember when I first joined, I spent hours searching on the hotel I had chosen... Many people have visited different places! 

 

I am sure you will find some answers!

Hi and welcome to the forum! I'm getting married at AS in less than a month so I can help you out a bit, but be sure to check out the thread dedicated to brides getting married at AS - there is a ton of helpful info. It will take you a while to read through it all, but I do recommend reading all the posts, it sure makes things easier later on.

 

If you have your dinner in the restuarant that comes with your package, you do not get your own private area. You get a section of the restaurant and thats it. In order to have privacy you do need to book a private reception. You can also rent a mic and ipod station to play your own music and have speeches. This is what we are doing because the DJ is $1300 and we really couldnt justify the expense. If you book a private reception, you get a private location - I think there are 5 you can choose from - and you can choose the menu. It comes with an open bar and servers too.

 

Hope that helps, be sure to read the thread.

 

Happy Planning :)

When I first chose AS, I read through the ENTIRE AS thread.  It took me forever bc it is VERY LONG, but if you start at about page 400 and read through, you will learn pretty much everything you need to know. 

 

You can have a free dinner for 40 people or less in a semi-private area of one of the restaurants.  I'm sure you could do speeches in there, but you wouldn't have your own music or anything.  It would more or less be a dinner, not like an actual reception with music and a dance floor.  You can have a private reception, but then you have to pay separately for the meal.  Then you can hire a dj, or you can hook your ipod up to the resort's speaker system (they charge some fee for that but I don't know how much). 

 

There are a lot of options at all different price points, just depends on what you want and how many guests you are having. 

 

Good luck planning!

Thank you very much for your info=)

So your only option to have a reception is to pay for an area to have one? Do receptions not come with any of the packages? I don't seem to see much about it. I'm dealing with a WC from canada and we are still on the booking process, then they hand me over to someone who can answer all my questions and i have a ton that no one can answer! lol so i'm hoping to get some on here so i know what to expect before hand. I'm just figuring out this wedsite ( which is amazing) and i'm just having a hard time finding out info about how the whole reception thing works.

At AS, you can have a semi-private area in one of the restaurants, and you don't have to pay extra for it.  That is for a party of up to 40, I believe.  But if you want a separate reception (with a more private area, dance floor, dj or other music source, etc.), then you have to pay for it.  Don't necessarily have to pay for the space, but you have to pay a per person fee for the dinner/drinks.  They have a number of menu choices that you can choose from, and you can do whatever you want with the decorations and anything else you want.  But all of it you pay for separately. 

 

Here is a link to AS's banquet options:

I can't remember much about the packages.   They do cover some things, but not very much.  It kind of depends on how many guests you think you'll have.  You can probably find those packages on their website....I couldn't manage to find a link for them from the emails I've gotten from my WC.

 

If you have other questions, don't hesitate to ask.....I guarantee someone on this site has the answer!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
