it's for weekend weddings beginning 4pm or later. when i heard about it, i thought i would need to fight to not have to pay it. or worse yet, possibly change the time of my wedding (i really want it at sunset, but am not sure it's worth an extra $400!). however, i just asked my WC (angie) about it. since it was implemented after i booked, she simply said i don't have to pay. i was sure to print the e-mail and put it in my binder, but it was really a non-issue.

the revision date is listed as december 10th. so hopefully you booked in advance of that date! good luck.

did you have to turn in your final guest count?

Yes just because I am doing two different options for the dinner entree and they needed to know how many of each was needed.

But I know no one else is coming and everyone is booked already thank goodness since word is that the hotels are booked solid.

I really hope they don't take long to get the final total. Supposedly all my money is due April 1 so it'd be nice to know how much more I'm going to have to pay.

I turned in my checklist already and am waiting for her to get back to me. Doreen called me today and went over a few things and said she would e-mail it to me but I am still waiting....

We decided to do an a la carte wedding instead of a package so I'm thinking that this is why we are being charged that. She did not come out and offer this information I heard it on here on a post from a long time ago. I had to ask her about it before she fessed up to it. Oh and our wedding is at 2 pm on a Friday so it's definitely not the weekend charge after 4. She said it covered the charge of the gazebo, tables chairs, linens, lighting, set up, etc.

We are having two adults and two children attend the wedding but they are staying offsite at another resort. Does anyone know what it will cost for them to attend the wedding?

The ceremony is $10 for non-guests $5 for children
Cocktail Hour is $20 for non-guests I was told $5 for children
For a 3 hour private reception it is $50 and 4 hour is $60 for each non-guest I am not sure about the children

yup- stephanie, keep that email. they definitely do have to pay if they are non-real guests. Four of my guests (two adults, two kids) were going to stay at a marriot and I got quoted the same as above (thankfully are now at the Gran). Real guests get the standard price

    • 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.
