Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe

Recommended Posts

Thank you ladies! I had a nice sigh of relief after reading your responses lol.

 

I am bringing a photographer down with me and she is staying at the resort for the whole week with us so photography is dealt with my other concern was dj, which i will probably just use one frm the resort since the vendor fees etc seem to be very high and we are already tryng to budget lol.

 

Happy planning everyone!! everytime i read posts on here i get more and more excited!!

We are all mostly for DJ Mannia, the resort recommends him and he has amazing reviews. Plus a friend of a friend had him for her wedding 2 years ago. Good Luck on your wedding and planning!

On top of the DJ, you have to pay $15/pp for the extra hour.
Supposedly it's to cover the cost of drinks or whatever. I'm definitely doing the extra hour as well, even though it's gonna run us about $2k just for that ONE extra hour. :o

Even a reception hall in the US gives you at least 4 hours, they sure know how to get every extra penny from us destination brides! LOL
oh gosh how many people are you having?

 

LOL! wayyyy too many! We're thinking anywhere from 100-120, hopefully no more than 150. We both have very large families!

Should I be booking and reserving a dj this far in advance? and with decor etc do I need to let them know colours or does most of this get dealt with once we are there?

 

I am the WORST wedding planner ever!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Ps.. Thank goodness for this thread or else i would be even more lost! I love all the pictures and posts from all the past weddings!! Makes me so excited for mine!!

 

Trish, when are you in April? I'm April 5, 2014, but I've been so nervous planning for everything that I've asked my WC tons of questions via email and also went over a couple things face to face when I met with her back in July, like colors and stuff. 

 

I've read most WC's send you some sort of questionnaire to go over everything about 2 months before, but I would send sample pics of things you want, like colors, cake, centerpieces, etc so they can tell you what's possible and what may not be. Only because they love to charge "extra" for every little thing, I feel it helps to know budget-wise what you may be paying extra for.

Are you a May bride also??? Our date is the 2nd of May. I have the following so far:

 

 

-personailzed bags

-hand sanitizer

-advil, pepto, for the hangover

-aloe vera

-sun screen

-welcome letter

-I want to buy the door hangers (where did you get yours?)

 

I actually hired my photographer from here, flying her out and having her stay at the resort for a couple of days. She will be covering other activities, apart from the "day"

 

JCastro, I saw you're also from NY, where did you find your photographer? I don't mind the style of TP, but their package prices are outrageous! I really wanted someone who could take pictures of our stay out there, at least while we're with most of our friends and family.

SoonMrsD, do you know if DJ Mannia is one of the DJ's that our WC's give us the pricing for? I chose the package that includes the MC, but don't know if DJ Mannia has to be booked separately or has a different price list. I've also read great things about him.

What was the price you were quoted for dj and mc? And is this without the 'fireworks'?

 

Does anyone know if there is no mc, does that mean there is no mic at all? I'm trying to justify all the costs :s

Good question. Most of my guests are booking the junior suite.  I think fiancé and I are going to look into the Master Suite Ocean Front Club Premium and hopefully upgrade from there.  I don't want to depend the upgrade since I want to have my ladies take pictures in the room as I am getting ready.

On the sheet for pricing it's $1300 with fireworks and MC plus other stuff or $700 with just the DJ and a wireless mic

Yes he is the recommended one so no outside fees to worry about, I was so happy when I was told! He has a different price but when I compared it's just different packages offered from the hotel and the DJ, difference is not bad at all in my opinion. You are paying $300 more for fireworks and flashing devices as in comparison to his package for the wedding.

 

The only thing I'm not happy about is the extra hour but it is what it is. 

 

Did we all get the same pricing, please say yes lol lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
