Currently I'm in contact with Marvin from Maya Floral because his prices are a bit better than the resorts also his arrangements are beautiful. I feel like the months are flying by me and August will be here any minute!! 

 

Hello! do you have to pay any fees for using Marvin? what about any other photgrapher that you use?

@katiehenderson... We pretty much all booked through expedia.com... super easy and way cheaper.

 

Was also wondering what peeps are doing for decorations on the terrace? I ordered white lanterns for the guest tables, and am thinking that I want to keep it simple... maybe I'll have some vases for my little bridal party's bouquets? Which brings me to another question: Is anyone ordering their bouquets through the resort? I only have two bridesmaids and myself, but don't want anything too extravagant.  In the Royal Catholic Wedding package, I get one of the standard bouquets, but do they have anything smaller for my bridesmaids, or will their's be the same as mine?

Hi everyone! I'm getting married at Gran Caribe Real in May 2014. I was wondering about the private reception. They told me for a private reception it was $15 per person for the people staying at Gran Caribe. Does anyone know if this $15 includes the set up (tables, chairs, white table cloths, silverware, plates, ext) & the food? Or is is $15 per person PLUS the price of the food?

My WC said $15 includes the venue and set up ( tables, chairs, etc) and a 3 course meal (appetizer, main, dessert) .

If you want a 4 course (soup, salad, main, dessert), it will be an additional $10. 

I requested a to have 2 entree options (no extra charge), that way my guests have a choice between chicken or beef. 

That said, I'm still on the fence about having a plated dinner or having a buffet. Plated dinner seems more formal which I like, and the guests get buffet all the time at the resort. BUT! the buffet has a lot more options and variety.

I would assume the $15 includes setup, plates, white table cloths etc.  I bought a package and I know that the fee includes everything for the reception (4 course meal, white linens, plates, service, etc) and if I go above the 40 included in the package I pay by the person but it covers everything.

Since i am going to have a pretty huge amount of guests coming of about 100, I loved the outdoor terrace but I dont want the reception to end at 9PM. I booked DELSOL photography their work is AMAZING.  I also wanted to book DJ Doremixx because of the good reviews Ive read so far. How are your plans coming along?

 

did you find DEL SOL pretty pricey?

Hi Catlicardenas, That was one issue my Fiance and i had about them. They are very pricy for being in Mexico, but after looking at other companies and not really "loving" their work, I always went back to DelSOL portfolios. I love their work and i told my Fiance that photo is something i really want to spend money on because pictures are super important to me.

Hello ladies! Can anyone recommend a floral company? I have tried Maya Floral as well and their prices are way over my budget, im wondering if there are any other companies that do a great job but are less expensive and more helpful than Maya floral. 

Thank you and happy planning! =)

    • 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.
