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. :-)
Yay! She is mine too and she is Awesome! Always answers my question and I always call and ask her what I need or anything I'm unsure of. I actually just spoke to her today. She shouldn't because I would be upset!
What is your wedding looking like? Location of Ceremony? Location of Reception? Do you have a cocktail hour? Wedding Colors? Rehearsal Dinner? Welcome Drinks? Photo/Video? DJ? Wedding Head Count? and anything else you want to share lol
Girl give me details so I can bug you an ask you questions haha

Hi SoonMrsD, we have decided to go with strawberry package and have all events on the beach : ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The colors are white and orange. I got full DJ package with MC, wooden dance floor and their tropical centerpieces. I tried to do my own centerpieces but it took so much time that i returned all i bought and decided not to bother
We do have a rehersal dinner a night before at the Santa Fe Steakhouse and they gave us the dinner free of charge because my future mother in law has been to that resort 7 times. As far as the pictures and video, i ordered gold package from Tropical Pictures and the cheapst video for the ceremony. I decided not to bother with outside vendors and none of my friends are professional photographers. Plus, i wanted someone who knows the resort well for the nice background and trash the dress photos.
I also have welcome bags for all guests: Oleg Cassini glass pieces (bought them at TJ Max at 50% discount), wedding survival kit (band aids, sun screen etc), chineese fans for women and small toys for kids (there will be 6 kids out of 36 total guests).
I think that was all. What about you? When is your wedding and what have you decided on?
We have Strawberry Package as well, with option to upgrade to the Tangerine.
Date: Sept, 6 2014
DJ/MC: DJ Mannia (Resort Recommended)
Photo/Video: My cousin is a professional and is doing Photo/Video
Centerpieces: I am bringing my own and everyone is helping me build buy and take to DR haha
Cocktail Hour: Not at this moment until I figure out the amount of guests
Reception: Somewhere with AC unless I get the Tangerine Package and if the Bar Higuey is available which comes with the package
I can't figure out my Welcome Bags yet because I don't know how many people are actually coming until the first week in Dec when the deposits are due to my TA
Not sure if there is anything else

Do you still have the email on the packages that the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe offers.. I am considering having my wedding there in 2015. Trying to get an early start on things since I am pregnant during the whole planning process..
Well the prices won't be the same, it will prob be more expensive for 2015. I have prices for 2014 only

Hi tricia-m, i asked the questions about using Skype on the beach months ago. Two ladies responded saying that the internet connection in the resort is very good and they had no problems with Skype video.
Thanks love! I guess it will be a trial and error kind of situation!

Thanks Person2B I will definitely take a look at their site. Yes, thank you for the chill out bar photos. My fiance fell in love with it and says we must absolutely have it. So hopefully Susana gets back to me!
I've been deciding about having my ceremony at the 'chill out' roof top. I noticed at one point someone sent you pictures but they are no longer showing up on the thread. I was hoping if you possibly had them still?
