Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe

Recommended Posts

We recently got married at a justice of the peace and we will also just do a symbolic wedding. No one in our family knows we are already married and so it will seem very real to all of us.  I was concerned that the verbiage would be different and Susana assured me that the ceremony is very real and there would be no indication that we are already married. We are doing our own vows though so above and beyond that it will be a bit scripted. We are also doing the sand ceremony (frame) as well as something I made up called Sand Dollar Wishes LOL.

 

Does anyone know exactly how the second dinner option works. Do you have to give the WC a head count of who wants what option before the reception or do they get to choose the night of? Waiting for Susana to get back to me but thought I would ask here. With 14 days to go I would need to contact everyone and find out what they want to eat, ugh! Had I known sooner I would have included it on the RSVP card. Will let you guys know as soon as I find out just in case any upcoming bride wants to give their guests options you can have them printed on the response cards.

Tamara I am not sure if you used a wedding website... But I used weddingwire.com and had my guest RSVP that way and had them select chicken, beef or fish for dinner... This was fairly easy and will be beneficial when I have to tell susana what my guest want.

Hi Girls!

 

Does anyone have any prices for a cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception? I know the welcome cocktail on the rooftop was about $1000. I think that was because of the site rental if I remember right. Is a cocktail hour before the reception included in any of the packages? Also- does anyone know what kind of alcoholic beverages are included with the reception?

 

Thanks!

I just got married in April and I was charged $12pp. It included appetizers (which my mom said were pretty bad) but everyone seemed to still enjoy munching and grabbing a drink. The cocktail hour is not included in any package.

 

For Tangerine pkg it's international bar (which I think is upgraded brands).

No package includes a cocktail hour. If you want a cocktail hour it will be held right after the ceremony and before the reception for an hour so that you and your FI may go take photos while your guests are still entertained. If you do want it, 2013 prices are as of now 12/person. That includes one type of alcoholic drink, apps and water/soda.

I think the cocktail hour is included in this package b/c the PRIVATE reception is not. It says a reservation at a specialty restaurant for up to 20 pple for dinner. I guess that's the trade off.

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
