    I decided on the beach reception. But I wonder if I should be concerned. Jeanne has not asked me to pay a deposit yet. Aquatracie can you tell me what the process is that you followed when you booked your wedding? I just want to make sure everything is on track for ours.

      Hi Oct 2012 Bride,


      If I recall, after we confirmed a date and time with Marlene, she had us pick a package and any extras we wanted.  After you gave her those with an estimated guestlist number, she will make up an invoice for you and you pay 30% of that through a wire transfer.  After that, it's pretty much been me emailing her with about 10 questions at a time and waiting for her to respond.  When we met with her in person last September though, she was great.  Super friendly and helpful.


      We are planning on having the ceremony in the garden area next to the Convention Center (where Bar Higuey is).  The beach gazebo was very pretty but it is sorta right in the middle of the resort and I wanted a little more privacy.


      I can't remember what info you were looking for but if you PM me your email address and let me know what you were looking for, I will see if I have it.


      Sorry I haven't been very active on the boards - we are leaving in less than 3 weeks and I have tons of stuff still to do!  I will try to answer any other questions you have.

        Hi Sunny55143,


        I will definitely PM you. But I will ask you this question in the thread. What do you think about doing a site visit vs not doing one? I feel like all of my questions would be answered with one visit.

            Good morning! I am new to the forum and found so many things extremely helpful! I'm getting married December 7, 2012 and would love to see the pictures you took TRIVERA on your visit to the resort! We chose the tangerine package and Im bummed about the food and the decorations but am hoping to work some magic. Would you mind emailing me the pictures as well? I can't thank you all enough for sharing your experiences. I can't wait to see your wedding pictures! Ill be sure to send along info as I get it too!!:cool:I

                See I have received my confirmation letter. So our wedding is booked and confirmed for the Strawberry package. But She has yet to mention anything about a deposit. That's what makes me nervous I guess.

                  OK so I finally received an email asking mentioning a deposit. I feel much better. I guess it must be because we were going to use the Mint Breeze package at first and then we switched to the Strawberry Passion package. I guess the lower packages don't require the deposit.

                    Thanks for the info earlier Sunny :)  We booked the Tangerine package and just need confirmation from the priest for Jan 7, 2013 still - ugh and have till mid April for the 30% which is fine.  I didn't realize this chapel is on the edge of the lake on the golf course edge - pretty but so hard to find pictures.  You've been awesome and wish you all the best in days to come!!!!!!!  I will keep reading as new info posts - alot of fun and so informative!
