So I have a main question. What is everyone's schedule looking like for the wedding???

 

I had asked the question to my WC but she never got back to me. What time does dinner start & how long does your reception end?

 

I unfortunately am having a 3p ceremony - anyone else in the same boat? if so, what are doing for the time in between then & cocktail hour??

40 days to go until my wedding and I've been so busy I had to force myself to stop looking at this forum! *BUT* I had to share some AMAZING NEWS for all of you brides-to-be!

 

The centerpieces have been my biggest challenge! I thought about making them myself but I already have way too much on my plate. I have a huge wedding (I think the biggest Dreams Punta Cana has ever seen).

 

We have 158 people confirmed and booked (16 tables of 10 people)

 

Anyway the good news is that I found a local florist who is AMAZING and will be doing my centerpieces for a little less than HALF THE PRICE DREAMS PUNTA CANA was going to charge me!

 

Real flowers.

 

My  family is Dominican and I asked around and waaaaa laaaa! The only problem is that she does not speak English! All of my communication has been in Spanish with her.... so maybe you have a friend who speaks fluent spanish who can help you communicate with her.  

 

I emailed her images I pulled from Pinterest of the centerpieces I want and she is going to re-create them! She is a wedding planner in DR so she has access to many more extras aside from flowers. She also offers the Tiffany chairs, decorations, candles, etc.

 

Here is her website:

mdf1us I asked that to my WC Deyanira if they could provide the menu and she said yes.  Might not be as nice as what you would like to do, but she said that it wouldn't be any problem for them to make them.  She didn't say anything about charging but who knows about that.

This is what I asked and what I got back from her: Are you able to print a menu card for the guest?[Deyanira Aristy]  we could print  a menu but you can feel free to bring this with you if desired

Grace, I am so excited for you too!! You and TCruz have me anxious for your weddings!!! :)  

 

THANK YOU for the day of itinerary!!! this helps me out sooo much! 

 

BTW, seriously everything you are doing is what we want!!! :)    I do have a few questions if you don't mind :) :)

 

- My PRican fiance is a Perico Ripiao fanatic! That was his "must have" :) :P  I already know your wedding is going to be bananas!!! Btw, I'm curious to know why they are only scheduled for half an hour? is that all the the resort offers? 

 

- Who did you hire as your DJ?

 

- Why does your reception end so late?? Is it b/c you are in the ballroom?

 

 

& thank you for giving us another florist option!! I'm interested in seeing how your arrangements come out. Before I start asking around since I only have 5 tables and am still debating on what to do.

    • 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  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  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • 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.
