Hi Ladies! I can't believe how fast time is flying.... it feels like yesterday that I go engaged and now less then 6mos away until i will be basking in sun the the GBP.  We got our official wedding date March 5th at 4pm.  Just a recommendation to future brides who are booking; When we booked they tentatively put me in a 2pm time slot for our ceremony ( which I was not interested in) at first I just thought that I would be able to change it when I got there but after discussing it with our TA she contacted the resort.  Paloma sent me a e-mail asking that I let her know right away what time I wanted ( which was 4pm) because they have to reserve the minister.  She said that it was urgent that i confirm the time  ASAP.  Glad that I mentioned it to our TA because i would not have been happy arriving there and having a 2pm ceremony.   So... i have a few questions.  Does anyone know what they charge for extra flowers? I did get the flower brochure but there were no prices in it.  We want to order extra boutonnieres and flower bouquets for the attendants and a few other flower bouquets for the ceremony site, and a couple of bags of rose petals.

Also, does anyone know if they have any white aisle runners?

And does it cost anything extra for the white chair covers at the ceremony?

Thanks for all the help ladies, this form has been a godsend!

Hello, 

I am new to the forum but getting married at GBP on Feb 15th!! I was just wondering if anyone is having trouble contacting their coordinator? I emailed Maria almost 2 weeks ago and have not heard anything back, I have emailed her twice in between then and now. I am getting somewhat frusterated. Is this normal or does anyone have any advice?

Thanks

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
