How did you do it online? Was there a fee? Florive is gone but a new women named Daniella has taken over she seems nice and actually has a bit better English.

i have seen quite a few pictures of the boat and am quite happy with the tables themselves without table cloths.  We will be bringing 7 bouqets on board-mine my MOH and 5 bridesmaids along with 7 vases, each table will have one in the middle and also some flameless votives since i have heard wind can be a problem for open flames and our wedding cake from the resort that comes in our wedding package. i don't want to much stuff to carry around and worry about i just want to enjoy my day. The lounge area on the second level is really nice just by itself.

Yeah, I had had emailed Flori a few times in the last few weeks with no response which was stressing me out because we're leaving in about a week (!).  Thank goodness for this thread -- I used the email address from the website (weddingsboatpuntacan@hotmail.com) instead of the one I was using with Flori and immediately got a response back from Daniel confirming our reservation and answering all of my questions.

 

As for decorations, we're going with a company called Caribbean Celebrations.  Originally we were just going to go with the decorations on the boat + perhaps some bouquet flowers since I think the boat is really beautiful on its own, but when my photographer posted some pictures of a wedding on a boat I noticed that the chairs had changed from those nice wooden ones to white plastic ones...  I emailed Flori to see if we could get the wooden ones, but it sounds like they only have the plastic ones now...  Since I didn't want plastic chairs, we went with CC because they deliver, had pretty cheap prices for chairs, and can also do some simply white flower centerpieces for us.

Yeah, I totally agree.  I was not impressed that they didn't reach out about the new contact information or about the fact they changed the chairs since all of the pictures on their website are the wooden ones.  I would have never known if I wouldn't have seen *****'s pictures.  

 

Caribbean Celebrations is charging us $7 per chair + $100 transportation fee.  One of the best things about them has been how incredibly quick and clear the communication has been.  Better than any other vendor we're working with I'd say.  When I'd ask a question or ask for an update on my invoice, I'd usually get same day, if not within the hour.  I might check with Daniel to see if the chair situation is still the plastic chairs from this summer (who knows maybe that has changed again too?  Since I've already paid with CC I figured I'm going to use them no matter what at this point).

Yeah I had my one and only bridezilla moment over those chairs, haha.  I never thought I'd be a person to get worked up about a detail like that, but when you think you're getting these pretty classy looking chairs and instead will be getting plastic chairs it kind of sucks.  I guess at least we know beforehand and get get other chairs if we want.  I feel like it would have been a lot worse to find out the day of with no way to change it.

 

You can check them out yourself though and see what you think: http://www.*****novablog.com/la-barcaza-wedding-boat-punta-cana-ka/

 

I really wish they'd change the pictures on their website to reflect these new chairs so at least people would know what they were getting...

i just checked out the blog, Looks amazing! my HUGE dress is going to be a little tricky trying to get onto the small transfer boat but i will manage lol. So the chairs in those pictures are not the ones they are using currently? they look plastic as well? i had seen the tables in other pictures and i thought i liked them but I'm now wondering weather or not i should rent table cloths too
