Yes, the location was in the colonial plaza and the dance floor was the walkway overlooking the pool. I added a photo's of the site at www.paradisuspalmarealpuntacana.shutterfly.com


Here is my break down of my total cost $9600.00


62 guests- $50pp and we had to pay $12.00pp for guest that didnâ€t stay at that resort. Guests that are not staying do get a bracelet for the night of the event.


Christian pastor

1 violinist

no cocktail- everyone went to the lobby bar for an hour after the ceremony and it gave us time to take photo's and not miss the party. Gave us a chance to add an additional hour to the reception making it 4 hours.

cigar roller

bridge decorations of flowers

all flowers

food menu option 1-my guests are STILL raving about the food lobster, soup etc amazing!

4 hour bar

White wood chairs w/ the cushion. The chairs are brand new and included as the basic. (we had them for the ceremony and the reception)



DJ- we flew our dj from Miami

Photographer- we flew him from Montreal; he was $800 for the Entire day and I a few hours the the day before or after for more photo's. We split the travel fee's with another couple and it came out to total $1300.00

linen's- We brought our rentals from FL $350

Makeup- OUCH - CAUTIOUS!! Thank god I went to Neiman Marcus and had a makeup artist do my make up(a VP makeup artist that goes to all the different stores training all the neiman Marcus for Bobby Brown) I spent about $450 with brushes, foundation and great make up that I love to this day. They give you a chart that explains the steps of how to put your wedding day make up on. I hired the salon at the resort to put my make up on but ended up stopping her before she really made a mess. (once she tried to put my eye shadow on with her finger) I went back to the bridal suite and did my own- It came out absolutely perfect thanks to Bobby brown.


our room rate: resort: OMG- saveonresorts.com

90 min layed back tour. double occ. $950 total for 6 nights


Rehersal dinner: Thejellyfish on the beach, walking distance from the resort but so much fun to have them bus everyone over. here's the website

Jellyfish Restaurant | Bavaro, Punta Cana | Restaurant, Bar, Lounge, Weddings, Events

$1300 total cocktails and appitizers (brought our dj)


Hope this helps, I will let you know if I think of anything else.

wow thats a really good price!! u lucked out with the DJ and the photographer!! and your pcitures are beautiful. you gave me a great idea in case it rains, i could have it there too since its under the covered thing by the pool. but i will have it on the beach both reception and ceremony. did you do this ala carte? the website you booked the hotel from, you stated 90 min layed back tour, is this a time share thing?

Rebecca76 I really like the layout of your wedding! This is exactly what I want!

Did you take a package and then add extras or if you did everything à la carte?

No that is just for our Wedding. We will be staying at the resort the full week we are going to stay in an RS Ocean Front Room. They always say if your gonna do it do it big, so thats what we are doing!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
