I am getting married in Puerto Plata in Feb 2006, on Valentines Day. We are looking for a location to get married at. We were looking for something on the beach, but if it's not feesable then any nice place will do. We did not want to do the AI hotel wedding, we wanted something off the resort. My fiancee is Dominican and he will be paying for everything. I will be going in Nov to finalize (IE give my o.k) on everything, and do the last minute details, as this is the last time I'll be there before Feb.
We were looking at the new restaurant beside Casita Rica's on the malecon, but when my fiancee went to ask the price he wanted 75000 pesos for the rental. I though what? He wants us to pay for the building costs??? So we scrapped that idea, and are looking for other alternatives.
I don't know how much a place would be to rent, but I thought 75000 pesos was a lot. Could anyone recommend possible locations, and what a resonable price is. Is my fiancee suppose to be doing this?....Yes. Is he Dominican?... yes. So that is why I want to give him suggetions, so it may get his a** in gear. He promised to have prices for some locations, but I think if I can say go "here, here, and here", he may actually do it before I get there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, with location, prices, and even other possible suggetions on a cake, flowers, and photography, and food. We were thinking buffet style, and we would get all the liquor as well. So any help on that would be good. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
