Tam, where did u see the other pics? I only found a few of her and her hubby on the Dreams Punta Cana Brides FB.
Im so nosy i just wanna see all the pics! hahaha! I'm curious to see the beach reception set up as well.

I have a few questions Katie...
Did they move the reception to a different spot on the beach? Where did ur guests go while they did that?
Where you able to pick out anywhere you wanted to get married on the beach, or are there designated spots?


oooh and while i was effing around on FB i found a BDW page! So u guys should add it ;-)
Im soo anxious to see the huppah as well! It seems like there are NO pics of Dreams PC brides using it!
I was at the resort when she got married. I just didn't know it was Katie, but I watched the ceremony just before my crab won it's race!!

nat.. do you think we're actually lucky enough that they aren't charging for the beach wedding anymore? "casita" technically means "small house", so i have no idea what that is all about! quit changing things on me DPC... i don't deal well with change!!

You also totally lucked out with the beach not being windy that day... everyday before that was brutal... that's why we ended up at the gazebo..
Thanks Tam!!

After meeting your sister I looked for her again (so I could find you) but never saw hersad.gif
That's so funny that you were right there:) You must have been exhausted afterward..I know I was, we (me and DH) went to the disco with everyone after the dinner but only stayed and hour or so. I figure we get to party with everyone on the 20th of February so we snuck offwink.gif
I wish that we had been able to actually meet.
The extra week was great..I missed my MIL she watched Adrian a lot for us the first week, but we did hire a woman from the preferred club and Adrian just fell in love with her.
Did you get a chance to go to the Bordeaux? I thought that it was great.

Ps I know what you mean with the bloating my legs/feet as well as my MOH's swelled right up...so much salt in the food although you don't taste it.

You TTD pic are so great I wish that we did that.
We hired Ornella from Tropical Pictures to do a photo session with DH, Adrian and myself our last day. They were so expensive but well worth it. Did you use the on site photographer as well as your friend?

Are you having an AHR?

Katie

Hi!

The beach reception is on one end of the beach and yes it is designated. We had our ceremony 5:30 (was 5pm but got pushed). The cocktail hour/dinner reception is on the other side of the beach..not too far it started around 6. While we had our photos done our guests went over and had apps and drinks. With the package we got a trio band that played at the cocktail hour..I LOVED it!!
Me and DH got the Ultimate package which was great for us. We also upgraded our dinner to platinum, ordered bottled wine for the tables and upgraded our photos to silver (we got 150 prints plus 10 8 x10's and an amazing video.)
I did see a huppah one day but it was another 300$ and the arch was just as nice. With the beach as a background I didn't think we needed anything else:) All our guests loved everything. I sugjest getting table sashes online theirs aren't very nice and they make a really beautiful touch.

Happy planning!!
Katie

I got your request on FB and I sent you one Erin!

 

With all the reviews, I am not starting to think about having a beach wedding....UGH...I hate this, lol. But I hate that at the gazebo you can only have 2 chairs on each side of each aisle. It just looks tight to me now, and with the beach you have a say in how many seats you want on each side. I know that is a small detail, but it's just bothering me. The Arch was very pretty too with the ocean in the background. I am starting to have a brain overload with this wedding and really just need to relax (or have a drink, lol). Thanks to all the recent brides for all your reviews and being patient enough to answer all of our questions!!!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
