    Sorry for the multiple emails but I am just trying to be proactive and think of Plan B reception location in case we cant use Bar Higuey. Has anyone had their reception on the beach? If so, how was it? What is the cost for a dance floor and can we add a bonfire for an additional cost? Thanks!

      I was told the beach wedding is an extra $65 per person. Let me find the email so I can copy what she said.

        Hi trivera 5521,


        LOVED reading what you had to say! I would love to see some pictures if you wouldn't mind sending me some. I'm getting married there February 2013! When you say they have security on the beach do you mean people are actually telling people to move away from the ceremony? I'm doing our ceremony on the beach but I really don't want people watching! I understand there will be a few people I'm sure but not a lot... hopefully! Also I would love for you to send me the menu! Thanks so much!

          I'll be getting married at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe September 29, 2012 and wanted to get your feedback on your experience with the wedding coordinator thus far. I find that sometimes getting information from her is like pulling teeth and that she's not the most forthcoming when it comes to costs. Also, I find she's forgetting details of the wedding that have been confirmed. Have you had this experience? If not, how have you been able to communicate with her. I'm dealing with Marlene not sure if you're dealing with someone else.


          I'd love to know how your wedding turns out. Congrats and hope all goes well.

            JRM: I would say that sounds about right. They seem to operate on Caribbean time to the 10th power, I sometimes wait days for responses.  I havent gotten to the point where I am working on details since our wedding isn’t til May of next year but she hasn’t been forthcoming with answers to my  questions either. Just a few tips:


            • Document EVERYTHING!! Get everything in writing and keep meticulous records.
            • When you email her send all your questions in one email
            • Be patient they suck at getting back to people in a timely fashion   


            Good luck and keep us posted!!

            P.S. I am just curious where are you having your reception area? If it’s at Bar Higuey, did she tell you when you booked it that there was a possibility you could be relocated?

                Have a great trip Sunny!!! We look forward to hearing all about your beautiful wedding!!


                On another note ladies, I received information from the WC in regards to the possibility of having our Bar Higuey reception relocated due to a big event in the convention center.   

                1. If I have to relocate my reception, can I use the roof top area for the reception? No, we are not allowed to serve food it area.
                2. What are my other reception options if we cant use Bar Higuey? Beach or banquet hall.
                3. If we cant have Bar Higuey I guess we will opt to have a beach reception since the banguet room is not something we are in the least bit interested in, will there be some sort of compensation? Yes, in case that the hotel re-located us the hotel will give you something as compensation.
                4. When will we know if we have to relocate due to a big event in the convention Center? Does the vendor have to book that space a certain amount of time in advance? The groups department will advised me and then I will advised you, I really don’t know a certain time/date for you to let you know.


                If we are not re-located but they have some activities going on at the convention, you will be seeing people or both around the area.

                People will not be inside of the reception but outside “maybe”

                    Hi Amy! We are getting married May 2013, but we did site visits in February and BBPD was 1 of 4 resorts we visited.  Sent me a PM with your email address and what other information you are interested in. I am more than happy to help =)
