I Need HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

I would imagine it could actually be cheaper for you if you took the reception to a restauraunt. 100 dollars pp for the open bar is crazy, who would ever drink that much? A dinner in a restauraunt and paying for drinks has to be cheaper then that, I would think! This is not what you needed 3 months before your wedding. You should share the hotel with others so that they are aware of how little this resort is willing to help you rectify the situation, because I am a big believer in nothing in life is non-negotiable. Did you ask to speak with the person in charge of the venue directly istead of dealing with the wedding planner. And enquire that if the hotel is not allowed to move on the menu, what kind of deal can they give you in regards to other things such as maybe room rates to make up for your inconvenience, worth a try.

Best of luck

Wow - my FI and I were reading this and he was shocked at the $100 Open Bar pp bill! That was insane! Do they honestly think that one person is going to drink $100 worth of drinks? At a minimum that was $10 per drink x 10!

 

Glad it worked out!

Just catching up--glad to hear you are able to hopefully go elsewhere. I agree, how can you budget a HUGE event and have to guess at the biggest expense!!

Good luck sweetie!

    • 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.
