Beaches Negril Brides 2011

Recommended Posts

Krystina, you make a very good point.  I checked out "etsy.com" and just searched for silk wedding bouquets and they are lovely!  I'm going to do what you are doing.  I agree, I really don't think they will grab it out of our hands. 

 

Dymond6 - it's been a month? Yikes!  So, with 40 guests are you going to have Beache's so called private dinner/reception?  Do you have an idea of how that area will look like?  I just find it a bit hard to gauge as I'm just trying to picture it all in my head.  You have to make sure everyone is fairly entertained.  Did you have to pay for the 40 headcount upfront?  That was one of the questions I am waiting on a reply from Renee for. 

 

Bride2Be143 - Did you opt for the mento band at all?

 

By the way, are you guys all using the resort's hair and make-up artist?

MyMy, yes I will go with the private reception. The $75 one, since we have 10 or more rooms, it will be discounted to $60. There is a time frame to get the money to the resort, I think its either 30 or 45 days, I would have to check. The ask for a guest list and all of that. My wedding is in October, so not many have booked yet, so I'm kind of estimating 40. We will see what I really get.

 

The area... its outside, so you will be in sand, I ran across a guests pictures on one of these threads, if I happen across it again I will post it. But from what I understand tables are in the sand under a wooden tent??? I cant find the correct word at this hour. My question will be where is the dance floor. I will have to pay for the guests upfront I believe. To my understanding everything is paid for 30 or 45 days upfront.

 

Hair/Makeup... My sister is a cosmetologist and my maid of honor, we will try my hair style out that I have chosen one of these days. For makeup *sigh* I may have to break down and pay the $100 for them to do it. There is a $30 trial charge and a $70 wedding makeup charge. Such a ripoff!!! I'm praying that my makeup artist cousin comes with us.

 

Krystina, your flowers are absolutely stunning. Are they silk or the real touch I've been hearing about?

BTW I say this on another thread, for those looking for OOT Bags. Dollar Tree has these cute totes. When I saw them on another thread I had to see them in person, I figured they would be cheap looking , but I went just in case and I fell in love. I bought 20. I will either do an iron on or embroidery, or both. Here is the link: http://www.dollartree.com/new-arrivals-seasonal/seasonal/big-polyester-beach-totes/215c277c277p310914/index.pro?method=search

I emailed my WC about it , just waiting to hear what she has to say about it.

 

Once you find out about the delivery of the flowers I would love to know the outcome!!

Sllefebvr... she asked her WC, they said she couldnt pick them up and bring them onsite, so I'm sure they wont allow delivery lol. But if I decide to go with real bouquets I'm using my florist and I'll put the bouquets in bags and be done with it.

 

I'm trying to be good and look into silk ones though.

So you are going to try and transport real flowers?!?  I am starting to consider those real touch flowers everyone has but I'm afraid of the quality and the look... i'll probably end up buying a sample to see.

    • 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. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
