    Hi I just got back from DR and I visited the BBPD, I met Susana finally, she's nice =) and the resort is beautiful, I'm so excited about my wedding in September...but I wanted to ask you what time is your wedding, I'm trying to get mine to be at 6:00 pm because 4:00 pm is too hot to have the wedding on the beach =/ and the sun is still beeming...I also wanted to use the Gazebo. The reason I ask is because Susana kept she's not sure if its available...? Since we are both getting married the me day we should keep in touch to help each other out with info...etc

      Thank you so much Sunny for the information. I cant believe they only serve one type of beer! Oh i hope that isnt a problem as many of my guests are beer drinkers! Oh well. But thanks again for the food info. Helps to see what is available. I know you had your cocktail hour located within the gazebo and on the grounds around it, but I was wondering if they gave you any other options for locations for that if you had decided to get married in the gazebo? That is my location as well and I would rather get married standing in front of it then inside of it, but was wondering if they even have another spot for the cocktails and food to be set up?

        Acquatracie: Thanks....duh I didnt even notice it was our resort. I just saw some hot chicks in bathing suits LOL and couldnt figure out why that made you cry. Thanks for sharing!!

         

        JG Corona: Would love to hear more about your site visit. Did you see any weddings? Did it appear that the beach was really crowded around the area where the beach ceremony would take place? What were your thoughts on Bar Higuey? Is Susana giving you the option to have more than one food choice? Did you see the bridal salon?

          Hey KitCat77 and all the lovely ladies of this forum:) I am completely new to forums and how these work, but after reading everyone's messages, I feel more relaxed! I am having a Catholic wedding in October 2013 with about 100 guests and I wanted to know what recommendations you had regarding Catholic weddings at this resort. I would super appreciate any advice that anyone may have because I feel pretty much lost at this point. No one ever responds to emails at the Barcelo! PLEASE HELP!

            During my site visit I saw a wedding at the Gazebo and they had security so that no one from the resort would interrupt the ceremony. The resort wasn't that crowded but then again the place is huge. The resort is brand new, recently remodeled which is really nice. I saw Bar Higuey its nice but if you plan to do the wedding reception their tell your guests to wear very light clothing its super hot...well at least during my visit I was sweating while I walk around with Susana...Bar Higuey has a pool around it and Susana said that she has seen people get drunk and fall into it at weddings, but it looks really nice they also have salons all along the sides of Bar Higuey...but I'm interested in the Salons located in the main building they look newer and I like the decor better also its close to all but again I"m waiting to hear back on availability...everything seems to be a process with them...that is what I noticed =/ no straight forward answers my hubby was getting annoyed like okay can you please answer my questions with a positive answer instead of ooh we have to see upon availability etc...I was asking all kinds of questions but she kept saying don't worry when you come in September we will sit two days before and tighten everything up...but that was my reason for going this time...I hope it all works out in September...I have a webpage on Facebook I posted some pictures...your welcome to join...its jgwedding2012 or jgcorona I'll add you so you can check it out

                  Hi again JG Corona....I saw your pics on facebook and your website (which is great by the way!)...my dads side of the family is from santiago and my moms is from santo domingo....I was wondering if you could share any information on the bus line you were using and what type of prices they were giving you.

                    Sure! I'm still searching through agency's but as soon as I hear back from them I will let you know...on my visit I tried with Caribe Tours and Metro but since I only have about 30 people traveling from santiago and the capital, its not enough if you have 50 people probably you can get them to transport them...but I"m searching via agency's and I will keep you informed =) When is your wedding ?

                      Hey JG,

                       

                      I think we have the same wedding date: September 29, 2012? If so I'm booked to have my wedding at the Garden Gazebo at 5pm followed by a cocktail hour at the same place and reception thereafter at Bar Higuey. Perhaps the Gazebo by the pool is still available? Good luck!
