Welcome Dinner/Cocktails at Sheraton?

Recommended Posts

Hello Brides! I would love to do a welcome dinner or cocktails and appetizers at the Sheraton. Does anyone have experience with this? I know a Hilton bride on this forum is having a bonfire with taco bar does the Sheraton offer anything comprable to this? We are having our guests stay here but aren't doing the reception here so I don't know anything about the Sheraton's restaurant options. Thanks!

I looked into having my welcome reception there....basically you would be working off of a banquet menu similar to what you would see as appetizers for a reception....this option was too expensive for us..I wanted to spend the money in other places. If you pm me with your email address, I'd be happy to send you the app. menu and prices that I have ...they will be a little outdated..I was married in June 07. We looked into doing the welcome reception at the Tequilla Bar or Pithyasis (sp?).


We ended up hosting the welcome reception in our room..we had a 2 bedroom timeshare suite and I rented a couple of chaffing dishes from my wedding coordinator..we bought all the stuff at Costco and made chicken and shrimp tacos, salsa and guac...it saved us a lot of $$ but was a lot of work. We were able to offer more food and drink and therefore have the party go later in our room than we would've hosted if we did it somewhere else at the resort.


The Sheraton will also let you have a bon fire...I think it was $500 for set-up and I think you could arrange for a bartender, but I don't remember anything about food...I think it included stuff for smores...sorry I don't remember all those details.

    • 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.
