Dreams Punta Cana Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi...I'm looking at Dreams as a possible place for my wedding (hopefully my date is still available)...I visited the website and reviewed their wedding packages and extras. I didn't see anything about open bar for a private reception. For all you ladies who have been contacted by a WC at this resort or who have been married there already, how does the private reception work in terms of alcohol?? TIA :)

I'm not 100% sure because we are just starting to plan, but Dreams is all-inclusive, so I would think that the bar is included with that?? I do have the menus and some extra info the the WC sent if you need that!! Just let me know!

Thx Ticia for the info. I was looking at the Melia as a possibility but if I wanted a private reception they would charge me extra for the open bar...it really added up!!

When you get a private reception, they set up a bar (not a actually bar but they get a table with a white table cloth and stock it up with premium domestic and international drinks) as told to me by the WC. They do not charge extra for this, it is included.

Thx, thats what they did for my friends wedding in Puerto Plata and that sounds more reasonable that what another resort was offering to me.

I'm not getting married at Dreams, but I would think there would be different package options.

 

Included in our beach reception is a buffett and open bar (3 hours) for $2500.

 

We are also doing a private bar 1/2 before and 1/2 hour after the ceremony right next to the gazebo. That is priced per person/per hour.

Hi Tami, the Paradisus is part of the Sol Melia hotel line right?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
