Thanks Wendy5512, I will copy you and add myself to the thread.  Wedding is booked for 5/9/2012 at 1pm.  I have a new wedding coordinator though, Roxy.  I guess Monica is too busy - this may be good but will let you know...

Melissa43 -

 

The steel pan player was really nice, I just would have liked that he played the bridal chorus, and I am sure he probably would but he specifically needs to be told apparently.  It cost $500 per hour.  My guest really enjoyed the steel pan player, however I felt cheated since I didn't get to listen to it except for when I came down the aisle, because afterwards we took photos while he continued to play (I assume) and by the time we got back he was gone and my "so called" 1 man calypso band was playing.

 

Here are the 2 cd's I had purchased;

http://www.amazon.com/Steel-Drum-Island-Tropical-Collection/dp/B0033A9L8G/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310433840&sr=8-2

 

The first time I heard the Bridal Chorus (here comes the bride) on the CD I started crying!

 

The sand ceremony was through the resort and it costs $100, it was a nice way to include the kids...lots of the sand did not make it in the jar (which was funny) -while we were taking photos the kids were playing in the sand...too bad the photographer missed the candid shots, it was so cute!

I tried not to stress out about most of it, the calypso band ordeal was probably most annoying, particuliarly because I don't like being lied to!

Ladies~ I have just added a new album - pictures of the island & resort!  It's hard to remember to take pictures when you are taking it all in!

 Enjoy!

Brandy, you got some really great shots of the resort!! Makes me miss it so much!!  I completely agree I had every intention of getting all kinds of shots for the ladies on here but you get so wrapped up in everything its hard to.

 

And Im so sorry to hear about everything you went through!!!! It just blows my mind how one girl can have everything go right and another girl can have a ton of things go wrong, I think thats why its important to remember that things can go wrong and you just have to stay calm and try to go with the flow as best as possible. I believe the calypso band is only actually 2 people, Im gonna go back and look at my photos but they should have informed you if you couldnt get the entire package!

Yep two guys, my only thing was I had always thought a calpyso band had a steel drum, but this one did not, but like I said before there were still good and created a great atmosphere!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
