My site trip

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! We returned from our site trip last week and have almost everything figured out!! All you girls were so helpful. We decided on the Hilton. We just loved our posh it is, Emeline is great, and they have such great venues. We decided to do 3 nights of events. The first night is sort of a mini event, but we are doing a beach bonfire with smores and light food and margs and beer. Second night we are almost 100% doing the RD at La Panga, and the wedding will be at the Hilton. We met with a couple photographers, and are leaning towards Sergio (if anyone has used him let me know if you liked!!). We are doing a wedding cake with Chef Hatton (over 1/2 less than what Hilton is charging for a cake). Maye is arranging the music and flowers. She wants to use Flor de liz for flowers and either DJ Arturo Ortiz or DJ Ricardo. Her musicians are Sabrosura. Does anyone have any experience, either good or bad, with these venders? Ohh..such a FYI..one the way from the airport you pass this place called the Mega (sort of like a super target). We stocked up on beer and water and bread and PB and J, great way to save a TON of money!

Thanks for sharing. Personally, I haven't boked your vendors but I am aware of most of them. I haven't heard anything negative so rest assured that the main event will turn out perfectly.

Jenetta,

 

I do not remember seeing flowers at Mega. They did have a couple candles and votives, but not a big selection. There is a Costco there, and I believe the membership is international, so we are planning on joining here for $50, and using it there for wine for the RD and champagne for the wedding (we are paying corkage) and all teh stuff for the out of town bags.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
