    Hello ladies,

     

    I'm not exactly sure how to word this properly...Does anyone know what goes on during the ceremony? I will be having a symbolic ceremony, and I know you can incorporate anything you want, but what will the role of the WC be? What does she say during the ceremony exactly?

      Hi Everyone,

      My fiance and I just confirmed our wedding at Dreams Punta Cana!! We are having a civil service on November 15, 2011 at 4pm. Given that it's only 7 months away, we had to settle for a weekday wedding. All the weekends were already booked for the month, and we really wanted to be married in November. I guess that's why most people plan at least a year in advance! But it's no matter. Our wedding will be an intimate ceremony, and we can't wait to celebrate our lifelong commitment and share our vows with one another alongside our most cherised loved ones!

       

      Look forward to connecting with all of you fellow Dreams PC brides over the coming months. Best of luck to everyone!

        I also have a question for brides who did a symbolic ceremony at Dreams and did a legal ceremony in the States: did you have two different wedding dates? Is there a way for the pastor/priest/ceremony leader to sign off on the marriage license as if we got married in the States (which to me is more a white lie, than a blatant lie...) Any feedback would be appreciated!

          My fiance and I have confirmed our wedding at Dreams Punta Cana on 8/4/12.  We chose the Ultimate Wedding Package and it includes a Caribbean Music Trio.  Does anyone know what instruments they play?

            I am getting ready to leave for DPC for my wedding in June 4th.  So excited and overwhelmed.  Hope the weather cooperates with us.  We are getting married at the Gazebo.  I still don't have centerpieces yet, but everything else is pretty much taken care of.  Will post pics soon.

              I am just starting to plan my wedding for August 4th, 2012 at Dreams Punta Cana.  I chose the Ultimate Wedding package and it includes a caribbean trio.  Does anyone know what instruments they play?  Or what they sound like?

                You can go on the DPC facebook page and see a video of them playing.  One person had a guitar and I forgot what the other two used.  Sound....well it sounds OK.  Not too impressed but my family would love it.  It is better than having nothing.

                  I went to the FB page and watched several videos but could not find the one with the band.  I then went to youtube and searched several videos without any luck.  I would really like steel drums but I think I may be required to hire a different band.

                      Hi Raq87,

                      Thanks very much! 

                       

                      For the gazebo decor includes the floral arrangements on the pillars and the table for the ceremony, the flower petals on the aisle and the white chair covers. It doesn't include the chair sashes. We had brought our own chair sashes and we had the option of using them for either the ceremony or the reception - since there wasn't enough time in between the ceremony and the reception for them to remove them from the ceremony set-up and get them to the reception area. In the end, I didn't really care since we figured people would notice them more in the reception area, since they would be spending over 3 hours in those chairs, compared with the ceremony which lasted about 15-20 minutes.

                       

                      For both Raq87 and farlem 311

                      The one thing I do want to pass along, since it may save you having to bring more things down with you - you can use the flowers from the Gazebo set-up as the centrepieces for your reception. This was perfect, since even though we had brought down the materials to make our centrepieces, once we found out this little tip from another bridge and groom we jumped on it, since it let us cross one thing off of our 'To do' list giving us more time to ourselves. :)
