              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 didn’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   la carte?

Are you staying at the resort for a full week as well??
                      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!!!
