Also you can choose from chairs with covers of the tiffany chairs.

I am taking down tissue pomanders that I am purchasing from etsy,

6 for inside the gazebo to be hung by white ribbon and I am doing small ones to hang on the tiffany chairs at the end of each row.

I am doing a rose petal aisle at the royals crazy price :)

and doing raffia fans for the programs
Thanks! So tissue pomanders do you need for the gazebo? Do your chairs won't be covered-they'll just have the pom at the end? I'm really glad you posted this b/c I hadn't thought much about the gazebo decorations.

Hi again! Sorry I'm sure this info is somewhere in this massive thread, haha! But I can't find it, so anyway... Can anyone tell me how to get in contact with DJ Doremixx directly? My wedding is in less than a month and I STILL have not been in contact with the Mexico WC and we've paid in full, etc. I received a music list from the MI WC and it looks like it hasn't been updated in a decade...is this true? This can't be the list of all the music available, I pray! Also, some songs that are important to us for the Mother/Groom dance, etc. aren't on the list so I'm wondering if I can bring an iPod or CDs, will the DJ use them? Thanks in advance!

 

Also, if anyone used a musician for the ceremony, how did that work? When do you let them know what you want played for the ceremony? We chose a guitarist, and are yet to hear anything back about that... Thanks!

I am doing 6 large ones for the gazebo and yes I chose the tiffany chairs without the covers and they will have just one pom at the end of each row.

I think there are a lot of different things that you can do and I probably will change my mind again lol but that is the plan for now

Here is Ivans e-mail: djcunmix@gmail.com or ivan@doremixx.com I would try both

For us we actually sent him a list of our play list. This also included the father/daughter dance and so on. If he does not have the song you can just tell him what it is and he will get it or if you have the mp3 file you can e-mail to him.

I am also wondering about the musician. We also picked the spanish guitar and I have a version of some where over the rainbow that I woudl like to be played when I walk down the aisle.

I just figured that when I got closer and talked to the Mexico WC I would ask for the musicians information and contact them directly.

The chairs in this picture are the tiffany chairs,

How much is the hotel charging you for calla lillys? The other issue is even if the hotel is a rip off with the vendor fee it may not be worth it to go with an outside florist.

Hi a couple of people have asked me to share how my site inspection went. We just got back from a 5 night stay at The Royal.

 

First of all, the resort is great. The service is unbeleiveable and the food amazing, especially Asiana. We ate at the Mexican restaurant across the street at the Gran Porto one night and it was not good. We tried to eat at the italian restaurant there as well and there was always a line of people waiting. Based on these 2 things, we are not going to recommend the Gran Porto to our guests.

 

We saw quite a few weddings while we were there, did a food tasting, and met with Zulma.

 

The food tasting went really well, everything was really good. We tried 3 salads, 3 entrees, and 3 desserts. However you have to pick only 1 and we were hoping that we'd be able to give our guests an option of 2 entrees.

 

We do have a couple of concerns though. First, there is a definite lack of privacy, which I expected but we both thought it was going to be better than what it actually was. Also, they have 3 beach "sections" and all three sections can be used at the same time.

 

Overall the pros out-weigh the cons.

 

Feel free to ask me any questions you have, I saw about 5 weddings while I was there. This is just a basic summary of the site visit, I didn't want to bore anybody or repeat things that everyone already knows!

    • 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
