Sorry for the 1 million questions! And thanks again!

ha ha - no worries!

Yep - just sent Marvin pics of a singular green cymbidium orchid and told him i wanted them for the cake.

He actually sent me samples of centerpieces and I chose from the pics..changed up a couple flowers and he was more than accommodating.

I've got the blissfull love package - and I honestly don't even know what flowers come with that. But I do know that for the 'bride's bouquet' - I just ordered what flowers I knew were included - and i'll be using that as my 'throw bouquet'. As far as the other flowers that are included - I havent discussed any with Jazmin - Maybe we'll do that when we meet - if not - I guess that means i'm foregoing them - ha ha

All i care about is that I get the ones i ordered from Marvin.

Yes - he's scheduled to deliver them the morning of the wedding. He does have a delivery fee - its $100USD which is definitely steep - but again - I still saved SO much money by using him rather than the resort.

Here's what Ive ordered - pics I sent to Marvin

400  Boutonniers

 

400 Corsages

 

400 Bridesmaids bouquets with the dark purple calla lilies

 

400 My bouquet

Depends on what kind of flowers you want. If the resort provides what you want then you're all good - especially if your wedding package includes flowers.

If you're wanting more extravagant flowers like Orchids...the resort can and will get them for you - however it will cost you quite a lot

 

I'm using Maya Diseno Floral - Marvin's prices were SO much better than what the resort quoted me.

 

You don't HAVE to use an outside florist - but it's really up to you - what you want and how much you wish to spend

So I don't really care about flowers at all, but I read that people were only spending like 3-400 on flowers from the resort? How much is this marvin guy? And are you having to pay the delivery as well as he $90 day pass to have them on the grounds?

I think since you didn't really want flowers in the first place, you should just be good with the resorts choices' of flowers. I think people who reach out to outside florist are the ones who have a very particular taste with flowers and wanted a specific kind. You should be fine.

Me again :)

 

Was  there an option to pick up the flowers instead of the delivery fee?  (could be a good job for my dad and FFIL) Do you know if Marvin's shop is close to the resort? I guess $100 isnt thaaaaat bad if you are saving a ton of money...

I don't know about the reception getting booked up. We were undecided about having one at first due to budget so added that on later. So glad we had one though. Like I say there are so many weddings it would not hurt to get it booked early if you know you definitely want one.

Thank you! That makes me feel better! I will try to get my dinner time confirmed- the restaurant location has already been confirmed.  I want a pool side reception, but haven't actually requested one...I will do that as well.  Do you know if  the pool side reception always available? or can it get booked up?

    • 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!!
