Does anybody have any pics of the reception area choices? I looked online but couldn't find anything great. I think I am leading towards blue terrace as I like the open feeling, but did anybody find that it was too windy? And what about centerpieces? If I were to choose something tall would the wind knock it down? My one idea for centerpieces is to go to Cancun during one of the days prior to the wedding and buy some glass vases. I'm not too picky about the shape or size but I envision them being tall and round cylinders with blooms underwater. Do you think that will be heavy enough to not tip over? And would it be too much having those and also a medium sized flower arrangement among them? Thoughts!?!?

 

Also- Is the giant chandelier in blue terrace still there? I really love it and hope it is! I might hang a few lanterns around it but I think its really pretty on its own!

Ashley-

 

There are a handful of chandelier's at Blue Terrace. They all look the same, and yes, they look great and are very pretty on their own. I have a few pictures of the Terrace on my flickr account. Feel free to take a look. http://www.flickr.com/photos/kaelamcdougall/

KaelaMcD,

 

I'm so glad to hear that. I think I will most likely go with them for both photo and video so I don't have to pay the outside vendor fee twice. How long did you have to wait to receive the photos?

 

Thank you!

Hi Taryn,

 

I'm getting married on June 7, 2013, and I am being charged $800.00 for every outside vendor. May I ask who your WC is? Mine is Elizabeth Riff and she told me in our first conversations back in April that there was no getting around this fee...I would be curious to know if yours told you differently...


Thanks so much!

Randi

Elizabeth is my WC as well and I am paying $800 fee for DJ Dorremix, and $800 for my my photographer/videographer team, which is one vendor. It is a terrible policy but there's no way I was using their approved DJ and photographer.

Yay! Me and my girls picked out the bridesmaids dresses this weekend! We got them from David's Bridal in Vancouver for a great price (115.00 each) and they look really good on. I originally wanted coral as part of my colors but figured it was hard to find the perfect coral and then coordinating decorations. So I decided to do a light blush pink or even a champagne color, since it is easy to match in different hues. However, DB didn't have what we wanted in those colors! Waaah!!! SO we went with the coral there (which I LOVE!) and now it's back to the original coral scheme!  I would like some opinions on a few things if you girls don't mind! :

 

1. Did anyone else base their "theme" colors on the dresses they found??

2. Do you think I can make the DB coral color go with the modern, vintage, beachy theme I am going for? 

3. Should I keep it simple and stick with light colors (blush, ivory, sand, with the coral), or add in a soft mint or turquoise for some "pop"?

 

I am so indecisive with things so I really need help (at least a little push!) with decisions. Especially since their are so many options for everything out there nowadays! undecided.gif

 

Also, is anyone here getting married at AB on or around July 4,2013? Hoping to find someone out there that would like to maybe coordinate decorations/supplies if we have similar colors in order to reduce packing/cost. If anyone is interested shoot me a message, or just let me know if you are getting married around that time and we can get together for a drink and chat!

    • 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!!
