ncordero- It is my understanding that at this resort they will need to finish payment within 60-90 days before travel...so that is basically what I am sticking with. Although I feel like if someone hasnt bought a plane ticket within five months of the trip, they most likely aren't coming. I would love to use my website as an RSVP, but I would be getting lots of "maybes" I am sure. So just not worrying too much about it. No matter what, if you have over 35 people you will have to pay overage, and I do believe already we do. But also just talking to the people I have invited gives me a clearer picture and shortens the "maybe" list.
JG Corona- Look back through the thread...many brides have provided pictures of all the reception locations and also ceremony things. It is so helpful as yes, they do not respond very timely!
The Bar Higuey seems to be the best location for a reception, and I do believe every package includes a reception for up to the number of guests included in that package, if that makes sense. Once you go over, you pay $50 extra/person.
Does anyone know if children are allowed in Bar Higuey for the reception? I see where the convention center is "adults only" but was that just the case previously before BBPD became all one large resort instead of three separate? I have about 8 kids in my wedding group and do not want them left out of any of it. I am getting ready to make my deposit for the wedding/reception so hoping to know before then!
