And how much did you get back from Apple? 

 

I didn't use apple.  My guests mostly booked through bookit.com.

Did any past brides recommend their cake flavor?  Or NOT recommend it?

 

We went with the Tres Leches.  It was great!  We also chose the cognac truffle cake for our dessert and that was even better!!!

Just got back from a week a Sapphire! My daughter's wedding was perfect! Juan Carlos did an amazing job! I have no clue how to post pictures here but I wish I did! We used the resort florist and the flowers were beautiful! I took some back to my room after the reception and they still looked great when we left today!(I passed them off to someone staying a few more days!) They did a beautiful job on the girls' hair and make-up! We took a Harmon/Kardon bluetooth speaker and it was great! We included a lazzo ceremony and the Lazzo was beautiful! We used it on the sweetheart table with the centerpiece. The officiant did a wonderful job incorporating it into the ceremony! If you can tell me how, I will add some pics!

Oh wow!!! Beautiful!

Hi Brides! Does anyone have picture of their reception at the Beach Terrace? We are planning to get married at 4om and then wait until 530 for the cocktail hour. Has anyone left a little space inbetween?

 

Thanks  :D

We will be leaving an hour in between for pictures. We didn't want to miss the cocktail party. 

I feel the same way- so did you plan 30 minutes for the ceremony and then the cocktail hour 1.5 hours later.?

We had the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony. Had a toast on the terrace and John and Katie grabbed a few bites and then we did a group picture and family pictures. Had dinner shortly after pics were done. I took cake boxes and plastic forks and they boxed it up after the cake was cut and passed them around on silver trays for people to take back to their rooms. I had read somewhere that nobody ate cake because they were too full from dinner and dessert. They were right! Everybody took cake back to their rooms for a late snack!

We also had our cocktail hour right after the ceremony (or maybe it was about 15-30 minutes later (coming up on a year now, those details are a bit fuzzy).  Immediately after we also had the toast and then went straight to pictures.  We left enough time for the family to take some pictures with the bride and groom and then cocktail hour started.  The servers saved a plate of hors d'oeuvres for us specifically so we got to try each one.

 

I love the idea of boxing up the cake for later.  We were SO full from dinner I don't know how many people even tried it.

No, we have an hour in between. It will look like this: 

 

5:00pm - ceremony at Tequila Beach 

5:30pm - 6:30pm - pictures 

6:30pm - 7:30pm - cocktail hour

7:30pm - 10:30pm - reception 

 

And then we plan on moving the party over to the club to anyone who is interested.

Few questions some of you might be able to answer before I email Ramon

1. Decorations for the canopy are they cost extra? What does the bamboo canopy look like?

 

2. Music for the ceremony, what is easier ipod or cd?

 

3. Colored napkins do they cost extra?

 

4. Chair bows, 5$ a chair do you pay for them twice once for the ceremony and once for the reception?

 

5. If I am not using the photographer can  I use this money towards something else?


Someone was looking for a thank you note template. This is mine and I am more than willing to share. post-279241-0-16177100-1415301345_thumb.png

    • 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.
