    They waited 6 months. Oh my. I hope they don't do that with us. We haven't paid the WC anything yet.

      Hola ladies!! We just got back last night and had the most AMAZING time. There is so much to write but we leave for the honeymoon tomorrow and there are mounds of laundry to do! I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations about reserving Bar Higuey. I know exactly how you all feel with the email communication but when you get down there and have your meeting with Marlene, you will feel better. And then when you see what an amazing job she does and the tight ship she runs, you will be so glad you got married there! This won't be my actual review - just laying the groundwork: we met with Marlene for two hrs on Tuesday and she was all business. We basically went over each line item of the wedding questionnaire that they will send you closer to your date and the schedule of your wedding day. We came up with a revised invoice and paid it at the front desk. We had welcome cocktails at the roof terrace on Wednesday night, and then the ceremony was on Saturday in the garden area by the convention center. It was not where they usually do those ceremonies but in a location my mother-in-law suggested earlier that week next to the garden gazebo. We had a cocktail hour nearby with the champagne and apps in the gazebo and then went over to Bar Higuey which was amazing for the reception. We had treated our guests to the La Barcaza boat cruise and rehearsal dinner at Jellyfish this week and they were still blown away by the wedding. I know you will all be happy with this decision, it's just so hard to visualize now and I totally get that - I'm a type-A planner too. It all works out I promise! I'll try to get a review going soon while everything is fresh but I can't promise it won't be until the end of next week -sorry :( Good luck planning!

        Im getting married in July  2012 and its been a huge headache to get anyone at the resort to even email me back. So stressful my agent is also not having any luck so its insane i never thought it would be this hard for basic questions! Does anyone have pictures by any chance of what the gazebo wedding looks like? thanks

          Hi Yanick Delpino.


          You're almost there!! I have noticed that the emails have been slow for the past 2 weeks. Who are you emailing? If you go back a few pages I added a bunch of pictures. I think they should help some. Every time I send an email I ask for pictures of something so I am getting more and more. I will keep posting them as I get them.

            Hi Ladies! I am new to this site but so thankful for all the information I have found here.  I am getting married next June at BBPD but have yet to finalize the plan.  Does anyone know if the chapel can be used as a location if you are NOT catholic?  I really want the chapel and would like a religious ceremony, but I am Methodist! Not even close to Catholic.  I could have my own minister who is my uncle perform it, but I was just wondering if anyone knew if it could be used as a location without the Catholic ceremony?

              Hi Ladies,


              I have a few more pictures I meant to add last week. I have been asking for pictures in every email. These are decorations for the Bar-Higuey. And I have attached a PDF with center piece options.

                Your the best Oct Bride!! Can you please email me the PDF of the centerpieces as I do not have download permissions yet? trivera5521@yahoo.com Also are these centerpiece options for the Tangerine package or are they an extra cost?

                  You know I'm happy to post whatever I have. It's the only way to help each other. This site has helped me so much. So I have to do my share. lol.


                  I know the Tangerine Package includes center pieces but I'm not exactly sure which ones. If you go through some of the pics I posted I believe there is one up there with the Tangerine package. I'm doing the Starwberry package so I have only asked questions realting to my package. And the center pieces are not included. I think it is only included for the bridal table. I think.


                  I forwarded you the email she sent me. I usually save the pics on my home computer and work computer. But I've been emailing you from my personal email.

                    Thanks Oct bride. I love love love the bar higuey location for the reception. Thats where I most definetely want our reception to be. Its so perfect! I would just be so devestated if for some reason they had to change my location last minute! :( I was recently reading some reviews on trip advisor and one of the most recent mentions a wedding where they were relocated last minute. Also if anyone knows about the cocktail hour, what cocktails and canapes are served on the menu? (hopefully theyre not as sad as the dinner menu options) I wonder if they also have a kids menu?

                      Oh and another question! I thought I read somewhere that BBPD does not allow brides to bring pre made centerpieced from home or anything to decorate the tables with they must be bought. Has anyone else heard of this?
