The music from the dancing crowd was clearly heard by the people eating dinner it was as if it was their own DJ. Granted if both DJ's are playing at the same time I'm sure that its fine, but we didn't go back to check.

I have to admit this is one of my concerns about having a reception on the beach, I really want a beach reception but I'm highly considering the garden to avoid this.

Is anybody else concerned about this or am i freaking out for now reason?!?!
This was one of my concerns originally as well. I think the thing is there are alot of factors to consider. For example how big are the other weddings at the time of your wedding? If they are small there is a good chance there will be a good amount of space in between each wedding on the beach. Also like you said coordinating times. I would not want to be listening to dance music during dinner I would prefer to have nicer dinner music lol. So it is a difficult choice to make. Sorry not much help I know. I guess you just ahve to decide if this will really bother you just in case it does happen.

Yay! I'm using this piece of advice to tell myself it is NOT going to rain! :-)


What signifies a "private reception". For example, with the luxury packages we get a private reception.....soooo ok, i know kids come come, but what really makes it "private"? If i had a classic package and wanted a beach reception, wouldnt it be the same? Does anyone know?

lisa, yep, it's the same.

 

options are a semi-private, which is held is one of the resort restaurants. private receptions are an upgrade for some of the packages (like mine, the classic) and can be held in a ballroom or on the beach (i'm gathering that the royal also has garden areas, as well. hope that helps.

Yes, it does.

 

I, too, am considering downgrading my package because I dont need all the extra junk. Oh wait nvm..boo. I think with legal one of the perks of that package is to arrive two days before. poop. we already booked

Last week when I was at the Royal I did see two receptions going on at the same time but one was on the beach and one in the garden area. I believe they do what they can to keep them as far apart as possible.

 

Of the 8 nights we were in Playa last week, it rained three of the days. One time was at night and the other two were random quick down pours during the day. The only significant rain was at night and the beach reception was just winding down. I was told they all jumped in the pool and had a great time.

You guys, I have had weird wedding dreams for past two night lol

 

Last night I dreamt that my wedding was in a church and I was spectating in the back pew until I realized "it's MY wedding!" So I go to the back and get ready and notice my skirt? is too big, so I ask my MOH to help. She gets those clamps that they use to fit your dress if it's too big at bridal salons to clamp it tighter lol. (oh and its a brown skirt lol) Then I look in the mirror and I have an 80's high ponytail to the side and i look jacked up haha. I turn around and they have already started walking down the aisle and stuff with music. I tell them to wait cuz i'm not ready and lookin busted, but they wont listen to me lol and MOH wont help me look better. They wouldnt even give me my veil or bouquet!

 

Bah hahaha

 

 

Anyone else have weird dreams?

    • 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
