    Hello! My fiance and I (I'm probably the only male on this site, haha) are very close to booking our destination wedding at the Ocean Blue and Sand resort in the Dominican.  Jessi, (my fiance), is nervous about a few things and I was hoping you all could help us. 

     

    First, we are concerned we won't like the wedding reception meal.  We're very boring eaters (steak and potatoes. haha) and everything listed in the packages sound way to exotic for us.  Is there any way we could get a steak and potato option for the bland eaters like ourselves??

    Next, Jessi is worried about her flowers.  Being in a different country with limited communication with our wedding planner - she's afraid she'll just get a generic flower arrangement. 

    Finally, her hair.  She doesn't know if the stylists at the resort will be good. Has anyone had a good/bad experience with this?

     

    Also -- in general, what's everyone's wedding experience been like working with Yinette and the Ocean Blue and Sand wedding staff?  I look forward to hearing back from you all! 

     

    Thanks!! -Chris

      Haha! That's not a bad idea!  My fiance will probably have a million more questions than I do as we begin the planning process, I just wanted to get an insight on what people think before we book there. 

       

      Thanks!

        Hi Chris-

         

        I got married there a few months ago and had a WONDERFUL experience at Ocean Blue & Sand. We actually had the steak & potatoes meal and it was phenomenal...several people told us it was the best wedding food they'd ever had. (We did a private reception at La Brasa.)

         

        Ocean Blue has a package of optional flowers that should give your FI a better idea of what's available. In all seriousness, though, the setting is so beautiful that flowers are just a tiny part of it. (This coming from a florists's daughter!)

         

        I didn't use the salon for hair services, but I've heard good things about them.

         

        When communicating with Yinette or Ada, patience is the name of the game. They are the only 2 wedding coordinators and the resort usually has 2-3 weddings per day, so you'll frequently need to wait 24-48 hours to get a response...that's where these board come in handy! However, Yinette is great and everything came together beautifully.

         

        Also, there is a pretty active board of Ocean Blue brides at
