What time is your wedding? Are you doing dinner at any of the restaurants? I'm considering renting the disco or Seagrapes. I think the disco is $250 US for 2hours and includes the DJ and Bar (9-11) not sure how private though.

My wedding is @ 4 pm and I'm booked right now for Mammee's at 6:30. I want to try and keep everything flowing w/o any breaks and w/o moving locations. ie.. dinner and party part of the reception at different locations.
My wedding is at 4 p.m. and we also have reservation for Mammee's at 6:30.
We booked the Seagrape for 2h: 9-11h. It's 10$ per person for open bar we are 35 so 350$(It's stupid to pay for open bar at an all inclusive but I wanted to be outside).
I think it's 250$ for the disco and it just open at 11 p.m. for the public so you have the disco for your group.
I think that way everything will be flowing and not to rush: we have 2h between the ceremony and dinner for the pictures and we have 2h30 for dinner.

We're also going to use the DJ I think. It was a debate of that or the IPod but I think that with our luck the IPod will break or something! My FI has a "no play" list so thats a start!!! But we will have some of our own CDs as well.

Have you arranged for equipment. I was told that if you bring your own dj they must have their own equipment as well.

Chandlyn confirmed with me that we can use the resort's equipment for a $75 per hour charge.

Hi Bobbie

Oh, ok. Thanks. I guess since I didn't ask specifically I didn't get that answer. That's the pleasure of this site and the people on it! Thanks again!

Hi Ocho Bride,

My wedding date is 8/16/08/ I did get that same info about the disco opening up at 11 for the public.

I'm not sure about the amount of people I'm going to have at this point so I'm trying to hold off a little longer to confirm if I would even be able to use Mammee's since it only seats 50 or so comfortably. I have a feeling I'll end up at Seagrapes or Plantation for sure. Thought about poolside, but I think $50 pp when you have a group of 75 or more is too much. I agree, I hate the fact that u have to pay for open bar. Guess just one of those things!!smile27.gif

How do u plan to introduce your wedding party, etc if you have one? Are you doing this at dinner or at Seagrapes?

I think if your more then 50 the plantation is the best way to go and it's less expensif then having dinner at seagrape or poolside. I'm not sure about introducing my wedding party....probably during dinner...
I think the evening at the seagrape will be fun just to be able to dance in the sand...lol

We had our dinner/dancing at the plantation & used the DJ at the resort. They were great - you can give requests to Chandlyn at your meeting. They played great songs!!! 150/hr.

    • 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.
