La Barcaza Wedding Reception?

Recommended Posts


We are paying $60 per person for the Chicken/Beef grill option. It also includes "National" open bar, which looks like pop, water, rum, and beer.

Thank you.

Hi ladies,

You will find all of the pricing listed on the website:http://weddingboatpuntacana.com/en/weddingsreceptions-menu-budgets-puntacana-5.htm

 

The boat holds 100 people.  You need a minimum of 20 people to reserve it for a private reception.

I was also told by Flori that we could bring other alcohol with us.  I will probably buy some bottles at duty free (vodka) and get some wine in DR.

 

I wouldn't bring candles, as they will blow out, but I am thinking of bringing some battery operated tealights and just placing the bouquets on the table.  I also found these foldable bouqet vases that I might order and then weight them down with some sand?  I cant seem to find the link for them right now, but they are basically a base you can pop the bouquets into.  i am also considering paper lanterns to string up along the edge of the boat. But not sure about that yet.

 

We are getting married at 3pm at Paradisus Punta cana, and then our cruise is at 5:30pm.   I plan to book the extra hour, but I am leaving that until the day since I want to ensure all of my guests are enjoying themselves!

Hi ladies,

 

We are considering using La Barcaza for a day trip excursion the day before our wedding.  Can anyone who has used them tell me about what the 3 hour tour includes.  I keep reading about the "Natural pool" - are the guests supposed to get out and swim around, so we should advise people to wear their bathing suits and bring towels?  Or is it more just everyone enjoying a boat tour and eating & boozing?? :)

 

Thanks!

Hi Sunny, I am doing the same thing as you but we had snorkeling on for 10pp extra which give you a little bit more time on the boat. But yet what I have heard is that you swim in the natural pool...when I've done things like this before people always bring a bathing suit :)

 

Hope that helps!

Just wondering if anyone has got married through La Barcaza on the beach. Flori e-mailed me and told me that the service is now performed on a beach in a national park and chairs are not allowed. I was wondering if anyone went with this option and if they have any photos of the set-up.

How did you guys pay for the deposit and balance?  I have Bank of America and they charge a $45 wire fee to transfer money to an international bank.  Did you guys do this?

Thanks!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
