So it was you who my MOH and I (the girls with the white tote bags) ran into at the spa when you were getting ready to have your hair/makeup done on your wedding day!! I somehow knew from the vibe I got off of you that you might've been from this forum, but I don't know what stopped me from asking that. Your wedding was beautiful to watch on the beach. You might've not noticed, but if you did, the topless kid with a camera around his neck taking pictures of your wedding was my brother. I kept calling him a creeper, and said maybe he should start a new trend...topless photographer..hahahha..
Anyway, I'm glad everything went well for your wedding, minus your son's (who was the most adorable ring bearer) unfortunate accident!! Is he okay now?
I'm anxiously waiting on my photographer to finish editing the pictures so I can share them with everyone. The bar higuey was amazing, wasn't it?!! I was soo worried about the weather, but it was perfect for our wedding. You had beautiful weather too, so that was cool!
Love your pictures, btw! I kind of wanna do TTD from looking at yours now, but I don't think it would've turn out as well as yours because my dress didn't have much of a train. It's a very simple lightweight dress - I posted a youtube link in my previous post if you're curious. I had my bridesmaids wore baby blue dresses, with pink tissue bouquets that I made, and my husband was in a custom tailored gray suit and white shirt with fuschia skinny tie. All the groomsmen wore white shirt, fuschia tie, fuschia boutinneire, black belts, gray pants, pink socks, and black shoes =)

Hey Tamara! Great pictures and thank you so much for the review. Your dress is stunning! And the weather looked beautiful for the wedding!
Sorry to hear about your little boy! That just sucks all around. Hopefully they will rectify the situation.
So I have Susana as my WC, and have heard she will not be there....so did the things you reserved/discussed with Susana take any like showing of emails, records keeping to have Marlene agree? I worry as I have made some plans with Susana that aren't exactly by the book so I just didnt want to have any surprises when I get there.
Would you say the Lobby Bar is a good and fun place to meet up for the first night just to welcome everyone? Is there food there (snacks)?
Did you ever eat at Hoya 19?
Did you guys do any excursions? Anything fun on resort that shouldnt be missed?
For the day of and decorating, do you leave it completely to them and dont have any family or yourself helping decorate anywhere? Just want to make sure I am where I need to be.
Did you guys get vouchers upon checking in? I see online where you can get coupons for the spa/waterpark etc, but my TA wont confirm it.
We have the DJ with the MC as well, and I know you missed most of your reception (SUCKS!) but from a few past reviews it sounded like the reception was basically just dinner, toasts and a dance...I was hoping to have like two hours of dancing...and it sound slike your party was able to do that...did you opt out of things like father-daughter dance and toasts or was it just more organized with the MC so faster?
I know you brought two dresses with you? Any problems carrying them on?
About how long did it take you guys to go through customs at PC airport? My FI keeps saying its going to take two hours, but I just cannot believe it!!
Okay, sorry I know that is so many questions! And I have more sadly hahah! My wedding is in three weeks and with Susana gone and a couple bad reviews im getting a little more nervous, so thank you for your review! Made me feel better. And your cake is the prettiest I have seen there! I was hoping to get that big bottom layer like you, but wasnt sure if they would be able to do it! But thanks again for all the info and you guys all looked wonderful!! Your son is just too cute!

Hi TRivera....congratulations on your wedding and thanks for the review!!! I know it was a long time coming and I'm glad everything turned out great overall. It's hard not to have all of these expectations when we read everyone's amazing stories on here, but I plan to keep mine low so I can be pleasantly surprised rather than disappointed if the slightest thing goes wrong (i.e. roaches, upgrades, etc.). It's almost inevitable. You have to tell me when your SYTTD episode will be airing!!! Love that show.
So glad your son was OK and I'm sorry you missed part of your reception. I can't believe they wouldn't accommodate you with an extension. Bad customer service, especially since it was partially their fault for not cleaning all of the glass up. But as long as your guests had a good time that's what matters. Glad to hear the food was good and the DJ and MC did a good job. Thanks for all of the heads ups about reservations, distances to walk, extra charge for second color chair sash, etc. Good things to know.
Love love love your pictures!!! You guys look beautiful together (your son is adorable) and the underwater shot is epic.
A few questions:
- Can you share a pic of Bar Higuey during your reception, with table settings? I love your colors...curious how they all came together on the table.
- I see you had your ceremony on the beach. I think I want the same thing (going back and forth b/w beach and rooftop) even though some are saying it's not very private. Question....did you say your cocktail reception was on the beach too? I hadn't heard of that. Was it a good location? Can you share a pic? If we do the beach ceremony I was thinking of doing the rooftop reception. But if the beach is a good option I'll consider it.
- Is that the caprese salad in the picture? Looks great! What was your dessert? Trying to decide b/w the creme brulee and chocolate forest cake (or whatever its called).

You were such a beautiful bride! Looks like you guys had a blast except for your son's boo-boo! Thanks for the review. I was also hoping for the upgrade to the premium room, but I guess that isn't going to happen...thanks for the heads up.
I had some questions but Natalieblev already asked most of them, however I had a couple more:
1. Did you check out the kids club at all? I keep hearing about a $10 for a "water park" do you know anything about that?
2. Did you get to check out the disco at all?
3. Did they charge you extra for the group dinner at Japanese restuarant?
4. Where did you get those bowls for centerpieces?
5. Do you happen to have Marlene's email address? They should've sent something out to brides to keep us informed!
