Girl, what is the Diablos Cajuelos?
LOL! This is exactly why I chose to do the crazy hour also! I think I remember Aris telling me I would have to provide any hats or whatever extra props I want my guests to use during it. I'm not sure my family will need any props though and I have enough to carry with me over there as it is!

Hey ladies, so I've been hounding Aris because I refuse to pay $50 for each centerpiece and finally told her I'm willing to bring my own flowers for the centerpiece (I heard they use fake ones anyway!) and the votive candles. She finally told me they can rent a cylinder vase at $15 per table. I'm waiting to hear if this includes the mirrored plate as well, which makes it wayyyy more affordable. She sent me a photo of the cylinder vase and I'm also waiting for her to send me the dimensions of it. Here is the sample photo she sent me.

Also, I found out that the tangerine package table decor allows you to choose one of the following:

1. colored tablecloth

2. white tablecloth with color runner

3. white tablecloth with a topper? not sure what she meant by that, I'm not really a decor expert (LOL) but she attached the following photos:

Last but not least, she also attached the included centerpiece everyone has talking about, which is not terrible, but I'm more a fan of taller centerpieces.

Did you know the Tiffany Chairs in the first picture are $12 each to rent? 

 So the only ones that are free are the plastic ones covered in white with a color sash... ugh what a disappointment! 

 

Also, there's an IKEA about 5-10 min away from the resort for last minute things. I wonder if it's worth paying $15 to rent the cylinder or better to just bring my own and leave it at the resort unless my guests want to take it home with them lol

 

I'm def doing my own centerpieces since it will prob look better and be cheaper than what they offer. 

 

Aris is my WC as well, Good Luck and keep us posted on any other details please!!!

I know, I'm so in love with the Tiffany chairs, that might be my splurge depending on my final guest count. I found a similar cylinder vase at IKEA at 20 bucks a piece, I figure maybe it'll save me the headache of not having to worry about transporting glass myself and it's 5 bucks less to rent them. And I don't know how many of my guests will actually want to lug a glass vase back home with them anyway and I'll have plenty of other favors for them to take home. Aris is so amazing, she always responds back so quickly to my emails, love her!

Lovelygemini, I think she means overlays not topper lol. That's what the second table setting would suggest. That's called an overlay lol
LOL! Thanks for clearing that up. I'm so clueless, I've learned more about fabric and decor planning this wedding than I have my entire life.

Anyone know if the drapery decor is included in the Tangerine Sunset package? I've seen it done with some of the other brides who used Bar Higuey, but my reception will be in the Mallorca ballroom since they can't accommodate the number of my guests anywhere else. The ballroom is beautiful but I think the drapery would be a nice touch.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
