I know that a BP coordinator will contact me 60 days prior to my wedding, but what info will I be able to find out then?  I want to order menu's, and create an event pamphlet to give to my guests the day of the wedding.  Will I make most of these decisions 60 days prior? or when I arrive @ the resort? I guess what I'm asking is what is it exactly you go over with your BP wedding coordinator?  What do you go over upon arrival?  Can I change the menu and mix and match?  There are some items I like on the BBQ menu but then there are some I like on The Mexican menu.  Also do you know if cheesecake is available as a wedding cake?  Thanks!

 

Hi Erika,

 

AT the 60 day mark you will choose your menu's and confirm all the times etc to create your pamphlet. Upon arrival we went though my entire contract including the contract with Zuinga (decor) to ensure everything was correct. Yes you can switch things out on the menus but I am not sure about the cheesecake wedding cake. I asked for Red Velvet cupcakes, they didn't seem to be familiar with them so i sent a recipe and they made them for me :)

 

Good luck with your planning!

Cheesecake is one of the choices. I'm at moon but I think its the same menu. I'm doing cheese for my groom's cake.

Hi ladies, Can any brides past or present advise how much the iPod dock is to hire for 4 hours? I'm thinking from 6-10 as our ceremony time is 4pm. Also, on the sky terrace are extra lights needed? Are disco lights worth it? If so, what have you picked and why? I'm trying to work out my budgets and keep getting hit with unforeseen expenses! Thanks so much Xx

I used the ipod dock for 4 hours with one speaker and it was $210.  Our reception was from 6-10 as well as our ceremony was at 4 and our cocktail was at 5.  Worked perfectly! :)

& you had a friend/family member MC? My dad said he would MC for me because I'm doing the IPOD dock as well. The only things he really has to announce are first dance (only doing first dance with hubby, not doing father/daughter or son/mother dance), garter and bouquet toss, and cake cutting. I think he'll be fine. Just wondering how that went for you...

Yep we had a family friend be the MC.  We did everything at once so he didn't really have to do much- wedding party entrance, into our first dance, into father daughter into mother son dance.  Then I think we ate and then did toasts and cake.   I didn't do the garter or bouquet toss.  The WC will help coordinate and then you can give him a run down of the order and he'll be fine! It worked out great even though our MC may have been a little drunk cause he misprounced a couple of our friends names even though he's known them for years!! haha.  oh well.

Oh good! I'm glad it worked out well. I'm sure my dad will do a good job. Not much work to do, just small announcements here and there.

Did anyone have Suzette as their onsite coordinator? I've been put into touch with her. We have a meeting the morning after I arrive at BP to go over details. She's been kind of slow to respond via email but seems nice and on top of things. I've heard really good things about Mario, so I was hoping I'd get him. But I didn't. Just curious if anyone has Suzette and if she did a good job?

I had Suzette!! She was super sweet and did a great job! Aside from her showing up an hour and a half late to our meeting (she made up for it by not charging me to set up my decorations and went the extra mile for me) she did a great job and she stayed the entire time.  She will be slow to respond up until your 30 day mark and then she will respond same day! Don't worry everything will be great- you are in good hands! :)

    • 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
