  1. I was there in January 2012 and stayed Friday to Sunday just to check out the property for my wedding and I have nothing bad to say! The food was much better than I expected...it was really good, the rooms were CLEAN, the property was well kept. I get married there in 8 days and I also read reviews... makes me NERVOUS AS HELL so I had to stop reading them!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. We chose the GOLD MENU for the reception dinner. Hearts of Palm, Creole and Romaine Lettuce Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette Soup Dominican “Sanchocho†(Meat Stew) Main Course Beef Medallions with Shrimp with Cordial and Black Pepper Sauces Dessert Kahlua Flan with Coconut and Chocolate Sauces Wedding Cake Dominican Almond Cake

  4. 40 days to go until my wedding and I've been so busy I had to force myself to stop looking at this forum! *BUT* I had to share some AMAZING NEWS for all of you brides-to-be! The centerpieces have been my biggest challenge! I thought about making them myself but I already have way too much on my plate. I have a huge wedding (I think the biggest Dreams Punta Cana has ever seen). We have 158 people confirmed and booked (16 tables of 10 people) Anyway the good news is that I found a local florist who is AMAZING and will be doing my centerpieces for a little less than HALF THE PRICE DREAMS PUNTA CANA was going to charge me! Real flowers. My family is Dominican and I asked around and waaaaa laaaa! The only problem is that she does not speak English! All of my communication has been in Spanish with her.... so maybe you have a friend who speaks fluent spanish who can help you communicate with her. I emailed her images I pulled from Pinterest of the centerpieces I want and she is going to re-create them! She is a wedding planner in DR so she has access to many more extras aside from flowers. She also offers the Tiffany chairs, decorations, candles, etc. Here is her website: www.magdalenaramos.shutterfly.com
  5. Hi Sherylh, They do start at $150 unless someone has other information... My "Tall" centerpieces are $240 EACH!
  6. Hi Winslow13! I'm having a DJ because I don't want to have to worry about the music. My fiance is working on putting our favorite songs together on an external hard drive and an iPod that we plan on giving to the DJ so he can mix it in with the music he has... also, I confirmed with Deyanira (my coordinator) that the DJ speaks English and can announce the wedding party. Regards, Grace
  7. 98 days to go my friend! (Freaking out!!) I'm not changing into another dress but If you want to party with us after your wedding you're more than welcomed!! We can take a shot of mamajuana together in our dresses! Lol
  8. Hi Carolina13, No, I didn't pay extra. I was told the location was on a "First come first serve basis" and I booked my wedding 10 months in advance so I had free reign! Talk to your coordiantor
  9. Hi Chinanow You won't have a problem.... Dominicans are known for being great hair dressers! We have every skin color and hair type you can think of! I was born in NY but both of my parents are Dominican and I am 100% confident you will be happy with your hair! Makeup --- I'm not sure.... although I emailed the Spa directly and asked if they knew how to apply fake eyelashes and they told me yes. So boom there you go
