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!

We FINALLY processed the transfer after going back and forth with our travel agent and our bank.  And when we were trying to process it, it took them an HOUR to figure how to do it.  Stupid scotiabank!

Screw the colored draping! AMEN that the draping that we've been seeing in the pictures are included.  It was hard to picture the bar higuey without 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 for the pictures and info :)

          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.

          haha. same here on both.

            Ladies-

             

            Anybody have a different email for a WC?? After Marlene quit, I have yet to hear from anybody and I am starting to get really frustrated. It has been weeks and nobody will respond! Wedding is in Feb, deposit is made, and waiting to hear back!

             

             

            The only email I have is bavaro.bodas@barcelo.com

              Email the same person and the person in charge is Daniela Gatas, she is the manager in the wedding department and will assign a new WC for you. I called my WC and she told me to inform you of this :)

              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!

               

              I'd bring flowers too if it saves me from spending $50 per table lol! I have Susana, so I'll try & see what she says for centerpieces. Thanks!

              MrsD's advice sounds good! But just in case... I have Susana & she uses bavaro.weddings@barcelo.com :)
