Ash, why the change?? We have been considering doing that as well... but maybe the week before we go. Have you officially booked the resort... I can't remembersmile03.gif

Yes please!! And I don't even know what oics are.... I tried for quite a while last night and couldn't get anything to take... I have done most of the text part so really it's just the pictures I'm having trouble with.. I was on google too trying to copy and paste... no idea why it won't work for me other than that's just my dumb luck... or operator disabilities!smile105.gif

Good Morning Ladies, I'm not sure if there is a actually list for cakes, but I pulled this off the Dreams website wedding section -


What kinds of wedding cake can you supply?


The wedding cake will be chosen by you. Once you arrive at the resort you will meet with the wedding coordinator to choose your cake. We have a standard white icing cake (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, or almond). Should you want a specific design, please send the picture and it will be quoted separately.



Good Morning Ladies !

Toya - Thanks for the info! I wasn't sure they would be able to accommodate the type of cake we want. You are awesome!



Well we've been together for 3 1/2 years, engaged for 2 1/2 and so he just said to me yesterday "I'm tired of waiting". He's right, we're exhausted LOL. I mean I will marry him today, tomorrow, in a year, or in 5 years. Makes no difference to me, I will still love him if we can't get married until we're however old. He said that getting married on the same date, just a year before would not only be less complicated because of all of the paper work, but it will save us about $1000 (he researched it and everything!). Now with that said, it's really appealing and what not... but at the same time I know that our parents dislike the fact that they wont be here if we do that. I just don't know what to do now!!!!!!


It feels like it's always about everyone else and pleasing them or accommodating them. However, I feel like this is one decision I can't make without my parents in particular being behind us, because everyone will be paying all this money to watch us "get married" (although really who goes to a wedding to watch someone sign the marriage certificate?!) and if we get married now it's like a waste of their money (does that make sense?)


So I'm torn. I have to make up my mind in like 3 weeks (otherwise we loose the Oct. 15th significance) and right now I have no idea where to start. He really wants to do it so he's left it "in my hands now".


Sorry for the thread hijack.

Aw Tam thanks!! It was super cute... and now that he is gone away to hockey camp, and I won't be able to join him for about a month, I go to that place (since I work close by) and I eat lunch and smile! :)


You know Ash, Ben and I went back and forth about this for about a month... its a tough decision! Here's what I think: Do what you guys feel is right for you. Don't worry about anyone else, who might not come if you do a renewal of vows instead, etc. etc. etc. Those that will still come are those that are the ones that matter... so don't worry about that part!

Now, about your parents. That is the part that I would be having the most trouble with, too. Have you discussed it with them? What are their thoughts? I can't imagine getting married and now having my parents there! BUT, at the same time, you can explain to them the cost difference, the significance, and so on and tell them that even though you are getting married October 15th, 2009 that you are truly thinking of your "wedding day" as October 15th, 2010! If they really aren't comfortable with it, and getting married without your parents is something you don't want to do, talk to FI about it. He seems like a very rational and understanding person, and he should understand. We had the same issue, we wanted to get married beforehand and do a renewal of vows, but my parents wouldn't be there... so my parents said that if we did the legal ceremony in DR that they would pay the translation and legalization costs. Good compromise, since that was the thing holding us back as well!

Sorry for continuing the thread hijack... haha xoxo

    • 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
