Your wedding coordinator will set up your centerpieces and any table decor you have. Just give it all to her at your meeting. I also gave her a picture of the set up and it was done exactly as I wanted. Good idea to provide a seating chart with your place cards as well.

My WC (Jazmin) just recently emailed me about the tables at Gran Tortuga, she told me:

 

"A good idea will be place card for your guests in the restaurant so If you like the idea please bring them, about the tables just keep in mind we can have square tables since 7 until 10 people max per table and If you have in mind a head table with just 1 face, It is possible but aprox 4 people ( and just 1 kind of this table is able)"

 

Hope this helps!

SKY LANTERNS:
Hate to be bearer of bad news but I did get an official response from Jazmin a few weeks ago and she said its not possible. I asked her if we used biodegradable ones if they would allow it but she said no - because of the fire hazard.
She said the palapas on the beach are too close and could catch fire.
Jazmin is the WC at GBP Tulum - so maybe those at Akumal will get a different response but I highly doubt it.
Jazmin did say that you are allowed floating lanterns in the pool for your poolside reception. But you do have to bring your own.

Maybe Akumal is different, but we are allowed to bring down lanterns for the reception...I know there lanterns that hang are either electrical wired lanterns and there are also battery-operated lanterns as well... I'm just unsure as to what lighting technique I am supposed to purchase and bring down...or if they just hang the lanterns for decor and not even light them?

Any lanterns that are lit with LED's are fine. It's just the ones lit with fire they don't want. But the ones that float in the pool can use tealites because they're floating on water so its pretty safe.
The ones you release into the Sky - you can't control which direction they go and you wouldn't want it to land on anything and catch fire..even if you try and send them out over the ocean.

Thanks for letting us know. Now, i'll have to think about another idea... haven't thought about the "floating lanterns". Does anyone know if you bring down lanterns for the reception, will the resort set that up for you? Just curious, is everyone mostly doing a restaurant reception follow by a pool reception?

    • 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
