we just got back from Punta Cana and we had the time of our lives! So much fun. Our wedding was amazing and I can just say that all the worrying was for nothing.
Here is our story.
We arrived on wednesday and stayed at one of the suites, which were so nice. We did upgrade for the Preferred service, which I can only recommend.
Luisa was our wedding coordinator and she went above and beyond to make our wedding special. We met with her on thursday and went thru all the details, flowers, food, decorations. I gave her my suitcase full of decocations and we did a walk thru at the fountain and our reception location. We had our reception at the carnival terrace, which was a perfect size for our 27 guests.
At the day the wedding, we got ready in the Bridal Room, which is located in the Spa. I had my hair and make up trail the day before and I'm so happy that I did that. My hair & make up turned out fantastic.
Luisa organized and took care of everything, all I really did was getting ready and show up. The ceremony was at the fountain at 5:00 PM. It was still a little warm & humid, but we didnt care. Ceremony was short & sweet.
As for the reception - we choose Carnival Terrace for our reception, it was decorated so beautifully. The only thing was that it poured down rain for about 5 minutes right after we opened the buffet. Everything was wet and they had to change the chair covers, etc. I was kinda bummed out about it, but it seemed like all of our guests didnt mind it and just said it was good luck when it rains on your wedding.
The buffet and the cake were soooo good!
We hired Dj Mannia & HDC Photo, both were good, but I have to say we could've saved us the money for the DJ and just played an ipod, because we gave him a list of tracks beforehand and all he did was play them once by one, without really mixing.
All I can say is to future brides dont stress out, because once you get there they will take care of everything. Also dont get upset if they dont reply to you right away, they get hundreds of emails daily and once you get close to your wedding date (2-3 weeks) they will response quicker.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.
