Hey ladies, just curious (I haven't noticed it on the forum yet) but does anyone know about streaming the wedding ceremony over the internet?

    Under a month left before our wedding!  We received our travel vouchers from our travel agent this week and received a huge surprise!  Our entire group received upgraded seats on the flight from Toronto to Punta Cana!!!!  I could not be more excited!  I will always use a travel agent for all my vacations from here on!!

    Ladies, 

    We just came back from our wedding stay at BBPD. Let me tell you. THE BEST WEDDING EVER. Literally, almost every person that came (we had 43 people), said it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. The photographer. AMAZING. We used Tropical Pictures. The whole stay was absolutely amazing and I wish I could do it all over again. 

     

    I will say, I was wicked nervous before we left, only because, it's a horrible feeling only talking to the WC through email, but we met with Arise the day after we got to BBPD. We finalized everything that day. Easy. Took an hour at the most. Cake decision. Boom. Photography decision. Boom. Food. Boom. We added the cocktail hour, amazing. It was well worth the money, and we had it right on the beach where we got married. Arise really takes all of the worry off of your shoulders. She really is amazing, and we had absolutely NO issue at all. The only MINOR hiccup was that the judge that married us was a half hour late, which wasn't even a big deal at all, and they just moved the reception time back, so it wasn't affected at all. The professional photos came out AMAZING as well, we had Micelia. Couldn't have asked for a better photographer. I'll post pictures asap, or I can email them to you. And if you want to email me for anything my email is lizabethcaputo@gmail.com

     

    There were 3 weddings happening at the same day/same time ish, and you would NOT EVEN KNOW. They take you on the trolley from the ceremony to the reception area. We all WOOOO'd whenever we saw people. Awesome ride. 

     

    The food, really good. We got the tomato and goat cheese salad, awesome! The main course was the chicken, I didn't like it too much, but I don't like chicken on the bone. Other people loved it. We got the creme brulee, along with the cake. BOTH AMAZING.  For the cake, we got 3 tiers all different kinds. The first layer we got vanilla cake with strawberry filling, second, vanilla with pineapple filling, and the top was the vanilla with guava filling. ALL AMAZING.

     

    The ONLY thing I could say bad about this place is that when we were trying to check out, there was confusion about us paying for the wedding. We paid for it a week before we left the resort at the front desk (they actually charge everything to your room, so you have to pay for it there and not at the wedding department). When we were checking out, they said that money wasn't applied to our room yet, even though we had a receipt. So our only wish is that there was better communication with that kind of stuff. Other than that, it was the best time of our lives and we would definitely recommend this resort.

     

    So, ladies. Do NOT WORRY AT ALL. It WILL be the best day of your life.

     

    CONGRATSSS!!! Thanks for the reassurance that everything works out. Was just wondering which part of the beach you had your ceremony/cocktail hour at? Thanks!

        I know I asked, but I didn't get any response.  Have any of you ladies hear of streaming your ceremony online?  We have a lot of family not going but we would still like to share the experience with them.

          For Katya to come in to your resort, yes they will still charge you a vendors fee unfortunately. It's too bad that resorts do this. In retrospect, if I would have know in advance, I would have researched more and try to find a resort that doesn't try to limit you on one of the most important days of your lives. You should be able to bring anyone in, and simply pay for a day pass as you would for a guest...I think this is so wrong on so many levels.

            Hi SoonMrsD, my WD is Arisquelmy (my 3rd wedding coordinator so far). She starter responding to me very quickly 4 weeks before the weeding and now she seems to be on top of everything. Hopefully, she will not quit in the next two weeks. :-)
