The braclet came from Ebay, can't remember the seller but I just typed in starfish bracelet and it came up.

Hello there just became a member and fascinated by your wedding, I get married next August at the Grand Sirenis and wondered if was possible to take some of my own things like decorations as I desire the beach and shell look more than flowers. Did you have to pay an extra charge for things that were your own? Also were they good at choosing the cake decor as the options I've been given to me are all hideous?? Also did they let you decorate the table for the a la carte evening meal? Kind regards Sophie xx

I did not have to pay anything extra for using my own decor. I dealt with Elizabeth and she was fantastic! I took her pictures of how I wanted my stuff displayed and she took care of everything. I did have to pay to have them hang my paper lanterns b/c of the staff involved and the time it took to get them up.  As for the cake I had kinda forgotten about that so when we had our meeting I just showed Elizabeth a couple pictures or what I would like and I thought they did a great job.  Take some ribbon with you in your colors so they can use it around the cake.

 

I didn't use an a la carte for my reception, we had the palapa which is private so they put out all my decorations how I wanted.  I'm not sure what you could do with the a la carte's.

 

You'll have a great time, I wish I could do it all over again!

These were so easy!  I had some PVC piping laying around so I had the hubby cut them into 3" lengths and then I cut burlap into 6" strips and hot glued the burlap around them.  Once the burlap set I wrapped the ribbon around using hot glue to keep it on and then added the starfish.  To get them to Mexico I packed them in bubble wrap and packed them in a plastic shoe box.  On the way home I wasn't as careful and many of the starfish fell off.

So I've got to know... Did you have any trouble getting sparklers into Mexico? I was going to do them but I saw somewhere they are technically explosives or something?! Not an convo I want to have at customs lol. Also, your use runner with shells, gorgeous. Where did you get such big starfish and do you recall the size of them?

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
