I might rent a Margraretta Sp? machine too.. adn my decerations will be simple and cheep!

I agree that it's nice to have it as close as possible to the DW as possible. I wanted to but were going on our honeymoon right after our DW wedding and then two of my cousins are getting married the following weeks.

Lots of busy bees!!!


I wasn't sure if waiting one month after we got back from our DW was going to be enough time to recoup before the big reception at home! hahahahaha I think my blood pressure increased reading those of you having it just a day or two after you get back! hahahahaha


We rented a reception facility and having it catered and with a DJ.

My FI wanted to do that but there is not really any "cool" bars where I live.. I will be having a lot of my College girls come down and you know we are going to want to boggy it up on the dance floor! So i opted for a rec. hall and a DJ! Our own bar/party!

    • 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.
