    Yes alot of things have changed from what I noticed. In 2014 prices went up at the hotel and I guess amenities have changed as well. But let's hope for the best! It does look nice but def not worth all that $$$$

      I just received confirmation basic draping is included in my package for bar higuey. Maybe it's using colored draping that costs more?

      Hey Tricia,

       

      I'm also from Canada & I used TD bank to send over my wire. I was charged a $30 fee (on top of the currency conversion), I couldn't find a way around it!

She finally told me they can rent a cylinder vase at $15 per table. I'm waiting to hear if this includes the mirrored plate as well, which makes it wayyyy more affordable. She sent me a photo of the cylinder vase and I'm also waiting for her to send me the dimensions of it. Here is the sample photo she sent me. 

         

        Also, I found out that the tangerine package table decor allows you to choose one of the following:

        1. colored tablecloth

        2. white tablecloth with color runner

        3. white tablecloth with a topper? not sure what she meant by that, I'm not really a decor expert (LOL) but she attached the following photos:

         

         

        Last but not least, she also attached the included centerpiece everyone has talking about, which is not terrible, but I'm more a fan of taller centerpieces. 

        CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

         

        Thanks so much for posting this! That centerpiece looks so much better than the old Christmas-like one. I was just wondering if you heard back yet about the mirrored plate also being included with the cylinder rental? Thanks!

        This is new. It's crazy that they're charging for it now.

          Of course, this forum is one of the few, if not only resources we bbpd brides have to get info, always willing to share whatever info I can get. Aris told me that conditional on how many guests I end up having, since it's a large group (we're expecting at least 100-120, maybe even 150!) she could allow me to rent the cylinder vase with the mirrored plate at $20 a table. For once, I actually got them to bend a little and all I did was say I'd bring my own flowers LOL. Give it a shot, looks like they're willing to bargain on some stuff. Now let's see what I can do with that darn drapery!

            Very true.  Wahh! Everything is costing so much more than I expected!

            Tell me about girl, every time I go back and look at our budgeting and costs I have to pour myself a big glass of wine first! The only saving grace is the fact that I know I would be paying more for a wedding here at home with all the people who would come.
