    I GOT MY WEDDING CONFIRMATION FORM!!!!!  Oh man, I'm SO relieved.  This was Susana's response:

    I’d like to pick the first picture – the garden gazebo (see attach).  This doesn’t mean we have to pick the blueberry package though, right? No, you don’t have to choose the blueberry package for this location.  We still want to pick the strawberry package with 35-40 people, and we are willing to pay the $50 for each extra person. ok

     

    For the time, we’d like to pick 3:00pm please. Perfect

     

    In the form I sent you, I’ve put down that we will arrive on Friday, May 17, 2013, and the departing on Friday, May 24, 2013.  The wedding day is on Tuesday, May 21, but I really hope this won’t be a problem because my travel agent already booked the flights already.  We don’t know the time of arrival yet, but if we get there early on Friday, we can meet with you right away if you want. Don’t worry when the wedding date is approaching I will let you know  when is going to be our meeting.

     

    Also, can you attach details of extra costs, sound system, such as cocktail hour after ceremony? Please find the extras attached, as per the cocktails and canap©s has an additional cost for $12usd per person, be advise that prices may change.

     

    As for photographer – I understand your resort do not allow external photographer, but if we have a photographer stay with us at the resort for a few days or the whole week, would this be ok? If that person is staying at the hotel and is going to be one of your guest this won’t be a problem.

     

    As I mention emails below for the strawberry passion wedding package you have to place a 30% deposit, please find attach© the bank information, the invoice and your wedding confirmation.

     

    She attached everything except for the bank information.  I think I might have to call her tomorrow to get her to send that over asap.  The confirmation says we have to pay deposit within 7 days or else they'll cancel our reservation.

        Thanks Teena84, I actually got a response from Susana myself this past weekend and sent her back the wedding confirmation form. So fingers crossed!! I'm hoping to do the strawberry passion package myself. I'm still in the beginning stages of planning but really don't want October 2013 to sneak up on me.

          Congrats Teena84!!

           

          I got some new info ladies about the cocktail hour... here are the list of canapes they offer. We can choose up to 6:

           

          • Sweet Ham
          • Fried Yuca
          • Fish Stick
          • Canapes of shrimp with tartar sauce
          • seafood terrine with saffron
          • smoked salmon with caper
          • manchego cheese with black grapes
          • canapes of seafood
          • canapes of serrano ham
          • mousse of tuna on bread toasts
          • tartlets with mousse of crab
          • slices of pineapple with cheese.

           

          I also confirmed that the photo booth is 350 per hour and they bring some hats, masks, etc.

           

          She is also going to get me prices for chinese laterns to decorate the ceiling of bar Higuey. I will let you know the prices.

           

          They do offer chiavary chairs on white, silver, gold or brown but each of them is 5.50.

           

          Thanks!

              Hey disajaza thanks so much for the info! It is really helpful! 

               

              So was she able to confirm that you would be getting Bar Higuey for your reception? Did you have to make a deposit on that to get the confirmation?  

               

              Also for the Tangerine package the reception gets "international bar." Does anyone know what that includes?  Is it just hard alcohol or does it include what we would call domestic beer? 

              And does anyone have the up to date food choices for the tangerine package reception? I would love to see it but am having a lot of trouble getting responses.

                natalie,


                This was the info I got for the international bar (I hope I formatted it correctly - it was written as one big paragraph):

                 

                 

                Rum: gold, White, Brugal A±ejo, Brugal Extra Viejo Vodka : Smirnoff Gin: Tanqueray Vermouth : Martini Rosso, Bianco, Semi dry  Whisky : J&B, Jhonnie Walker E. Red, Cutty Sark, Dewars Liquors: Apple, peach, almond,Tia Maria, Kaluha, Cointerau, Amaretto   The resort only serves Presidente beer.   Here is the menu I had for the reception - it may have changed since I received it.  It seems like you guys are getting much more info than I received when I was planning.  
                SALADS  Tomato salad with goat cheese pesto dressing  Cesar salad  Capresse salad  Curried marinated chicken and tomato salad   SOUPS  Genovesse minestrone soup with garlic croutons  Asparagus soup  Chicken noodles soup  Onion soup, parmesan cheese crostini   MAIN DISH  Pesto marinated broiled chicken  Pan seared fish medaillon, parmesan cheese risotto, asparagus and red bell peppper coulis  Glazed pork chops in old mustard sauce  Beef tendeirlon with potatos and vegetables  Sirloin steak parisienne coffee with vegetables   DESSERTS  Crema Brul©e  Luke warm half baked dark chocolate fondant  Fruit cocktail with tequila and mint fruit jelly  Black forest cake   VEGETARIAN MENU • Mixed greens, tequila margarita dressing • Asparagus soup • Grilled mediterranean vegetables with balsamic dressing (Red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, mushrooms, zucchini and eggplant)   We went with the Caprese salad, the chicken, the beef tenderloin and the cream brulee as our menu.  They were all very good.  Hope some of this is still accurate - someone else might have more updated info.

                    Hey Nat,

                     

                    I haven't got a chance to call her, but yes, if you could please send over the details, that'd be awesome of you!  Please send it to my email: t_l16@hotmail.com

                     

                    What happened after you sent the money?  Did she tell you that you're booked for bar higuey for sure before sending money?
