SSNM did she send you a menu ? Autumn1 sent me a menu and pricing for 2009 and that is waaaayyy cheaper than what you just quoted wheewww we have to figure this out because I definitley have 50+ people. smile35.gif

Okay so I looked at the buffet menu she sent me and it said $32 pp...I emailed her to ask why she said $55 when the menu says $32 and she responed that the $55 menu and the $32 menu are not the same...then re-sent me the $32 menu. So perhaps there is a $55 menu that she thought she sent me the first time but didn't?? I dunno, I am not going to question it anymore and just go with the $32 menu and be done with it.

 

Oh, just FYI:

 

- Apparently they will not put flowers on cake due to potential contamination.

- If you want a ribbon around your cake, you have to bring it yourself.

- The gazebo fits 100 people,

- Rehersal dinners cost the same as the dinner packages.

- Chuppahs cost $350 for those thinking of a beach ceremony.

- There is no upper limit for the plated dinners but after 50 it is recommended to do buffet for faster service.

 

Hope that helps someone

Thanks SSNM you have helped alot of us. I am brining fake flowers for my cake and the ribbon. Good to know how the rehersal dinners work, cause I definitley didn't know that, and I 'm glad to hear its not required to have a buffet because the menu gives you the impresion that at 50+ people you have to have a buffet.

have you actually been assigned deyanira?? they told me the last time i emailed them (about a month ago) that i would find out my specific assignment soon, but i haven't heard anything.

woah.. that is awesome information.. thank you!! i hadn't even thought about asking for a chuppah.. did she give you any other information on that?? i definitely didn't want the arch so i was hoping they could just take it down, but if i can get a chuppah instead that would be fantastic!!

And does anyone know what the chuppah looks like (that costs extra of course)? I'm not sure the arch is my style... haha
definitely not mine either!! soooo excited to hear the chuppah is an option! after one of the former brides said how pathetic the arch can look i wasn't too excited about it!

I know! And to be quite frank, I was considering Majestic Colonial for the sole reason that they had a chuppah and not an arch! I think its a little expensive, but its what we want so we will still pay it!

Hey DPC brides! Someone had asked about tipping during/after the reception...just wanted to give you what we did. We tipped each server/bartender around $5-$10 USD (I can't remember the exact amount as I'd consumed a little tequila and my aunt was "taking care of this") Lol! We also tipped Deyanira around $40 as she really did an amazing job of everything!! They definitely appreciate something.... In the end, it's your personal preferance.

    • 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.
