    A quick shot of the table decor at the reception. The votives were a nice touch, I bought regular votives from the dollar store and found an amazing etsy seller who sells votive wraps in a zillion different colors and prints. I just wrapped the orange wraps around the votives for an extra splash of color

      Miss Jalli, girl I am sure for the right price they will go to the moon and back for you. Everything is about money and everything at BBPD seems to have a price on it. So if you want it then I am sure they can make it happen!

          T, the fish bowls look really good for them to be plastic. Mind me asking how much they were?

            They were such a good buy! And looked as if they were glass, umm I wanna say they were like $12 each. The shells I used were like $8 a bag of assorted shells with a coupon at michaels they were prob closer to $5 a bag and I had 2 bags of starfish again just a few dollars and I got those from the Christmas Tree shop. I bought one bouquet of lilies from Michaels and picked off the individual flowers that I used inside the bowls. The bouquet was about $10 and I brought 2 but never used the other one. In total the centerpieces prob cost me $15 a table roughly and thats generous. Keep in mind these are similar to the centerpieces the resort charges $60 per table!

             

            I am having our at home reception for 100 people on 6/15 so after that I will post all the wedding stuff for the next bride to use. I will be sure to post the ad in this forum before I post under the for sale thread.

                  Soooo I guess money doesn't always get you what you want. Susana said the snow-cone station is not possible b/c they don't have the ice machine.

                  Wahhhh!!!!

                    Hi! I'm new to the forum and super excited (and flustered!) with all the options/details I have to think of. Can anyone tell me what the 'basic wedding decoration' at Bavaro Palace Deluxe looks like? Thank you!

                      It's funny how everyone thanked Trivera for writing her review and congratulated her but no one thanked me for taking the time out to do the same and congratulated me.  My review might've not been as good as her, but it still took me a while to write it all out.  I know I was not consistent in posting anything much, but it was still a big post for what I wrote, so it would've been nice to be acknowledged of that.  Forgive me if it sounds like I'm PMSing, but that's just my thought.  Anyway, I will not let this stop me from continuing to try to help out future brides.

                       

                      So, if anyone cares...here's a link to some pictures my brother took:

                       

                      It has some shots of Bar Higuey.  I'm still waiting on the professional pictures from my photographer.

                       

                      A tip for those of you doing a symbolic wedding - after your ceremony is over, and you sign the certificate there, REMEMBER to take it from your master of ceremony or assign someone to take that certificate right away and keep it!!  I was so caught up in my ceremony after it was over, the guy gave the certificate back to the wedding coordinator, Marlene, and she kept it.  After the reception, she went up to me to ask when will I come by to pick up my cake topper, but DID NOT say anything about the certificate!!  I had no idea she had it!  I thought, since it was just a cake topper (which I didn't pay for much), and I was so busy, I didn't take my time out the rest of the trip to drop by her office to pick it up.  HAD SHE TOLD ME that she also have my certificate, I would've for sure made time to drop by to pick that up along with the cake topper!!  Now that I want that certificate back, I have to pay for shipping it back to Toronto.  With DHL, it's about $50, with UPS, it's over $70!!

                       

                       

                      I came close to creating a label to have the thing shipped back to me when I remember to check the wedding package, and under Strawberry Passion package, it states the following for #3:

                       

                      "Delivery of the marriage certificate by UPS."

                       

                      I immediately had my friend who speak fluent spanish, to call them up to ask them why we would have to pay for the shipping charge of sending that over when it states that it's part of the package.  The idea was to speak to Marlene, but Susana picked up, and according to her, they'll only be responsible for delivering the certificate if we had a legal ceremony, not a symbolic one.  The package didn't specify WHAT KIND of marriage certificate!!  She said she'll email me with the cost for DHL, but when I was dealing with Marlene, SHE told me that she called DHL, and was told that I have to go to a DHL from my end, and fill out some form and pay for it here first.  I called up DHL here in Canada, and they said according to their system, they can't pick something up from Punta Cana to deliver back to Toronto, so I don't know how Susana will give me a quote for the shipping charge.

                       

                      Quite annoyed at this whole thing right now.  Technically, THEY should be incurring the shipping charge since Marlene didn't tell me she had the damn thing in the first place!  Had she did, I would've just picked it up there myself when I was still there!!
