1) Did anyone that has already been there get a free room upgrade?

2) Is the Cocktail hour worth the money or should just have everyone meet at the same bar?

3) Did Barcelona deliver welcome packages to rooms for anyone or how did you deliver them?

4) Does anyone have an example itinerary?

5) We've got 50 people for the rehearsal dinner. Can any restaurants fit us?

6) Is there an actual rehearsal for a beach wedding or no?

 

Thanks so much in advance for any answers!

Hi Curls,

 

I know your wedding just happened! Be sure to let us know how it went. I am loving reading all the reviews and seeing pictures of how everything turned out to get ideas. I'm sure it was beautiful. Look forward to your update!

anyone has the new 2013 prices?

 

Thanks!

I read through this ENTIRE thread (crazy, I know) and saw a couple of answers. One person said they had 88 guests in Bar Higuey, 11 tables with 8 chairs at each table. Another person said they had b/w 8 and 9 people at each table. I'm thinking they probably set the tables according to how many guests you have and spread the tables and chairs out enough to make your reception look full and not sparse. Hope that helps.

Thanks Aqua Tracie! I figured there would be some sort of catch.

Do you mind answering a question or two more about the Adults only side?

 

My Fi and I have booked the panoramic room and later it came up with my TA and she said that room is on the adults only side...is that correct? Not that it is a huge deal but I dont want there to be any limitations on the BBPD side because that is where most of our guests are staying.  One concern is that my nieces, who will be my flower girls, wont be able to come to my room for the "bridal shower" or the day of getting ready with pictures. 

 

Also if you dont mind me asking, where did you get your cute cake topper? I want one of my dog and cat since they cant come. They are our children! :)

My TA is out of town so still waiting on the prices, but on the tables i have seen them set up with six or eight. So im assuming you could do seven comfortably as well.

Disazaja,

Regarding table sizes:

When I asked Lianny she said the round table could fit up to 10 ppl but she recommended seating 8 per table. She gave me dimensions of 72x72" not sure what she meant by that since they are round. I can let you know once I receive clarification.

 

Natalieblev,

When we went for our site visit we had a look at the panoramic room as well. It is not at the Barcelo Beach Resort (neighboring adults only resort), but there is an adults only section of rooms at the BBPD (there is also a nice adults only pool with private bar and cabanas). It is still Part of the BBPD resort which is a family resort so hopefully it won't be an issue.

 

Hope this helpscheesy.gif

Has anyone heard from Susanna lately? I emailed her well over a week and a half ago and still no answer? Which is a bit unlikely as her communication turn around time has been a week at most. Really hoping that she still works there...

Hi,

 

My wedding is on May 18th, 2013 and I just started planning. Has anyone had fire dancers at their reception? Also, did anyone have the seated dinner with two options as I was told I had to pick one entree from the menu but I want my guest to have multiple options, so I was thinking about the buffet style. Please advise.

I called the hotel yesterday to book my date and was told that Susanna would be contacting me within 24 hours, so as of yesterday she still works there :)

I haven't heard from Susana as well. I sent her 3 emails and its been about a month and a half ! I called the resort and was told she was out on vacation and returned on the 7th and have been very busy...hmmm...If that is the case she should have out of office message up.

    • 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?
