Angeljewels- Define cheap. LOL I am having a NYC AHR and its not "cheap" by others standards and its borderline in my opinion, of costing too much. But I know plenty of places- Where in NY are you looking? I live and work in the BX and my bridal shower is at Frankie and Johnnies Pine Restraurant on Bronxdale Avenue. For my shower we are having a brunch and its $25 per person for breakfast/lunch foods- eggs, bacon, waffles, chicken, vegetables, potatoes, assortment of breads, juices, white wine, bloody Mary's, Mimosas, and screw drivers. With taxes it comes out to $32 a person and there are 4 private rooms in the restaurant- 2 with outdoor access/ patios. The latest start time for a brunch option is 1:00 PM so you can have a midday AHR and that restaurant has a great bar area so if people want to go into happy hour and pay cash and continue the party, they can lol. I think its a great bargain- we almost considered using it for our AHR. They also have other options like just a 4 hour open bar with butler passed hors d' oeuvres for $35 a person etc etc. Our AHR is $55.95 a person at Tosca Marquee Catering Hall on East Tremont. For that price we have the room for four hours, cocktail hour on the roof with 8 butler passed hors d'oeuvres, continued butler service and hors d'oeuvres for the remainder of the night, a salad and crudite display, a pasta station, a carving station, cookies and cannolis, coffee and tea and open bar, colored linens, use of the sound system (although we have a DJ because we were originally getting married in NY and couldnt get a refund lol long story), and use of the in-house centerpieces and bridal suite. So for what you get- I think it's cheap, but for a budget friendly AHR- not really. It's costing us the same as our package at the resort hahahaha. More- because our parents went crazy inviting people and we are at 100 guests and ready to tip over that. They have offered to give us some money. My mom paid the deposit of $1500 for us, my estranged father "claims" to be giving me $2600 since he can't come to my wedding, and my MIL says she will give us anything we fall short of in the end. We shall see. I'm not counting on it.  A smaller venue in Pelham/ New Rocehlle is the Bartow Pell-Mansion. You can rent it for $500 but you have to bring your own food, drinks and tables and chairs and I believe it only holds 30-40 people.  There is also Juliano's Catering Hall in New Rochelle- a tad outdated but inexpensive and has several rooms and Maestro's Catering Hall.  Your best bet is to go with a restaurant that will give you a limited alcohol and menu option for a fraction of their regular costs. You can also rent community centers- but to be honest those costs can start to get out of control unless you have a potluck style. Originally my shower was going to be in my friends yard but she was buying a tent, tables and chairs, cake, food, alcohol- the cost was going to be $1200. I told my MOH and mom about the Pine and there we got a more formal backdrop and the total was $1800. Slightly more- but no clean up, no running out of food, etc. PM me if you ever need more info.
Hi Ev thanks.... Yes we are going to see if it works with our budget after we pick a package.... No one has booked yet so I am really nervous about this... I don't know. I am actually a bit freaked out cuz ppl keep saying that they have enough time....

Hi Fellow Brides: Brian and I got married on Sunday, May 19th at the Paradisus Palma Real " Reserve." It was truly amazing! We had a Garden Gazebo Ceremony (4:00 p.m.), Beach Terrace Cocktail Hour (5:00 p.m.) and Beach Reception (6:00 p.m.). The locations and timing was perfect. We had great weather. We were expecting really hot and humid and it wasn't at all. There was a great breeze the entire time so we really lucked out. I had a bit of an issue attaching photos... but was finally able to post each one individually. See picture attached!

thanks I kind of waited to the last minute too and I saw the bags at old navy in our wedding colors and they said "Amor" so I just decided to go with them. I was originally planning on getting the canvas bags as well.... I put a lot of cute personalized items in the bags as well as snacks and water.....

It was incredibly stressful - we checked ALOT of bags with the help of my family. We got the water bottles from the hotel and re-labeled them there. Here are some of the personalized items we included. We also threw in sample sizes of sunscreen and moisturizer and some other things like that in a little pouch, as well as granola bars, crackers, and fruity snacks.

Loved everything!!! I'm planning on doing the same thing. I hadn't thought about getting the water bottles from the hotel... Did they give you a hard time? I'm scared that I wouldn't be able to get enough. Also how did you distribute the bags to your guests?!? xoxo, Darlene

Wow Missy,

 

This all looks amazing. Are those scarves? You did a wonderful job...wow 

 

Did you make everything yourself or did you order these from a website?

 

I would like to use coral and aqua for my colors and would like to do a starfish theme...not sure how this will all look but i am so excited to put it all together...

 

You did an awesome job.cheer2.gif

We were expecting really hot and humid and it wasn't at all. There was a great breeze the entire time so we really lucked out. I had a bit of an issue attaching photos... but was finally able to post each one individually. See picture attached!

 

Suzanne and Brian (New Jersey Bride)

 

 

Hope you enjoyed our pictures. We loved our photographer provided by the hotel. I always forget the spelling, but its something like Arrecife. Amazing work!

 

Good luck Brides!

 

Thanks for the pictures! I showed them to my mom so she could see we did not need to rent the bridal suite since the backdrop in the room is nice enough. I love your cap sleeves on your dress. So elegant! Your pictures were beautiful. Congrats on your new marriage.

    • 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.
