Maybe the mugs with a handle will work better. I know it's hard when you have the tumblers on the beach livin it up...no one is going to think about the sunscreen on their hands rubbing off our cute little logos.

Thank you for posting your pictures they were amazing. We are heading to ROR Dec.28th, and are bringing a large party as well. Did anyone with your group get sick? I am so worried about people getting sick, I know we just got back from a wedding in Dominican and so many people were sick!

Only one person got really sick in our group, and we first thought it was maybe from the food, but then later decided that it was truly the stomach flu that has been going around at home. All of us ate the same food, and only one got sick.

So no, other than that, no one got sick. There are jugs of water in every room, and the water served in the dining areas is filtered. I drank it all day and didn't get sick at all...

JamaicaBride, I am thinking of doing the same plan that you did, dinner at Mammee, reception at SeaGrape. I've been looking all over for reception dinner pricing at Mammee, do you remember how much you paid? Do you still have the menu?? What did most of your guests end up doing between the ceremony and reception?

Our dinner at Mammees was included. We didn't order off of a special menu, just the menu they provided, and the food was great.

Dinner at Mammee was included (free) and the food was great. Both the steak and red snapper were fabulous! We had 40 people, though, and it probably took a good 1 1/2 - 2 hrs. ***I attached the menu.

Between our ceremony and dinner, the bridal party and a few others hung out by the lobby/bob marley bar and talked and had a few cocktails. I actually ate some lunch too since I barely ate anything before the ceremony since I was nervous :) Others in our family changed and went to the pool or beach for a few hours. All in all, I would have rather had a later ceremony, but that's what was available, so we made it work.

Good luck!

Oh my Goodness! Your pictures are just wonderful and I am bumming out that they weren't taken by a professional, b/c I was going to ask who your photographer was!!

 

First off, you looked absolutely fabulous - but then you know that already. I love that you guys genuinely looked like you had a great time.

 

I've really been wanting to do the beach wedding, but have had concerns about it being a bit too casual. You have been the deciding factor, in my coming to the conclusion that it can be done on the beach - and done elegantly!

 

Am loving the look of ROR. I realise that you came in on a great budget ($1,000 for flowers?!!) but can I ask what it cost to stay at ROR? For yourself and the groom? And for the guests? What length of stay did you have?

 

Thanks SO much for sharing your pictures and taking the time to post this review/answer questions. I'm definately gearing toward ROR, thanks to your input! It looks fabulous!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • 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.
