    @sherylh I'm the queen of control freaks so don't you worry I feel your pain :D

     

    That's correct on the payments... I made some payments already but will pay the balance when I arrive.

     

    I'm having my coctail hour in the Himitzu Terrace and at the time it was first come, first serve so I got lucky. Most people use the Himitzu for their outdoor reception because it's spacey and a nice location. I needed something BIG since I'm having so many people.

     

    My fiance and I are both from New York, live in Miami but both of our parents are from The DR so we have a lot of family that live in DR that are coming to our wedding. It's my big fat dominican wedding!  AAAAAAAAAAAAAH

      AWWW yay!!! That is awesome that you are having all those people, I can only imagine how stressful it must be at the thought of having them all there but it's so nice that they willo all be there to share in your special day! I'm from Claifornia and most of our guests are flying in from there so I'm not sure how many will actually make it because we have a total of 140 that we have included on our guest list. BTW did you use a travel agent in order to book the rooms at the resort? How did that work out for you? I'm in the process of communicating with a travel agent and she said she would be working with each guest to book their flight and rooms at the resort and that she can be their contact person and of course I got a bit of anxiety because I want to make sure I'm in the loop (there is that darn controlling side again, hahaha) with everything going on!

        I didn't use an agent. I dealt direct with the resort on the rates and the guests book their airfare seperate. If I could do it over... I'd get a travel agent! Everyone is calling me with questions and issues and it's offically becoming a bit much...but remember I have a lot more people than you.

          Yeah it seems that it is going to be really convenient to use a travel agent, and that's the reason why I am using one, because I don't want everyone calling me with that stuff since I know I'm going to have more than enough to worry about! So when your guests booked their rooms at Dreams, did they have to put down a deposit or just reserve the room and pay upon checking out? And how many rooms were they able to block off for you?

            Since I have such a large party.... they blocked off 100 rooms once I paid 10% of the total cost of the wedding.

             

            They gave me a group code and a link that I put on my wedding website and invites... the guest click on the link, enter our wedding code and choose from 1 of 3 room types I choose for our package.

             

            The deluxe (standard king or two double beds)

            Junior Suite

            Honeymoon Suite

             

            They are required to leave a CC on file to make the reservation but it is not charged (unless they don't cancel within the alloted time which I believe is 3 days before check in date...I have to double check) At check in, the guest will decide if they want to pay cash or credit.

                Does anyone have any information on how to coordinate a rehearsal or welcome dinner at the resort? Can this be done directly with the wedding coordinator or must it be done through the restaurant? and how much advance notice should we provide?

                  Hi! I worked with Deyanira on my rehearsal dinner.. she gave me different options and I went with a sit down dinner in the Oceana Restaraunt and picked a menu but ... they offer different things other than a sit down dinner. :D

                      Thanks Grace! Might be a dumb question but is she charging you to have that dinner? I am wondering what is the maximum number of people that we could include in the dinner. Are you doing a welcome dinner or event? or just the rehearsal?
