We just got back from our Honeymoon.. and are extremely tired.. but wanted to check in to add a quick comment.. we will write a complete review in the next day or two, once we get settled in...
Our wedding was great.. the weather was perfect and everyone had a blast.. however, there were many things that went wrong during our stay.. we had a total of 20 guests and about 10 rooms (i will include more specifics in our review)... Most of our rooms had issues with the A/C not working.. we had the Preferred Club Junior Suite and our first room was hot, had a bad smell, had mildew and stains on the couches... it was completely unacceptable.. we told the concierge and we got moved to another room that was better, but still not great..
Some of our guests were moved multiple times.. others, moved once.. we spent so much time dealing with these issues.. and that isn't something we wanted to worry about.. I mean, it is true, you don't spend much time in your room, but we pay top dollar for a room.. shouldn't we get what we paid for?? The A/C wasn't the only issue.. some rooms, the remote control didn't work, the TV didn't work, the back door wouldn't lock, toilet wouldn't turn off.. outlets not working (for fridge and coffee maker).. bathroom outlets not working.. etc... I guess it comes down to, you need to be lucky to get a nice room.. if not, expect a few hours of dealing with the front desk and having to pack/move your stuff to a new room.. other things went wrong as well...
We will write more later.. let us know if you have any questions.. our reception was at the Bordeaux Terrace.. the view was the best of any of the terraces.. (in our opinion)..
Please don't take our comments the wrong way... we learned sooo much from this forum and want to offer or help in return.. so, use your own judgement.. but for us, we decided that we will never return to Dreams Punta Cana..

I'm happy to hear that your wedding was great but I'm really sad that you had a bad experience with everything else.
I'm now very interested to read your full review when you get around to it but for now, just relax and have a cocktail. Lol.
TTYL. Please also let me know if you're selling any leftovers from the wedding as I am in online buying mode right now. Thanks.

I’m trying to figure out if I want to use theirs or buy some to bring with me.

I'm not sure what colors they have but I know they charge $3 per chair sash and you can buy some at weddinglinensdirect.com for less than $1 right now. Something to think about.

This July 3rd will be my 30th birthday!!! YAY!!! We also decided to throw a little party that day/weekend, so it will turn into a small AHR as well I'm sure...You'll still be running off the high from the wedding, so I don't think you'll have any problems. Plus you can just leave stuff out instead of putting it away and then having to remember it all again :-)
I just ordered my favors and I'm so excited about them!!!!!
I have to go to my first/last/only dress fitting this week, and my work threw me a surprise Bridal shower complete with my weakness...triple chocolate mousse cake...EVIL!!!
Time to hit the treadmill a little longer over the next couple days!

for the AHR, its gonna be just plain ole fun, cook out style reception, we will have:
-Food (BBQ Style)
Our theme will be something like fireworks on the beach lol........... it will be very relaxed no formal things other than some speeches, thanks you's and a toast. We are holding it on a golf course, thats has a pool, tennis court, a pavillion, and a community ballroom. I will be using all the facilities. I can't wait its gonna be sooo fun.....
Christin how exciting, my mom bday is the 7th and my FI's is the 14th
