Hey everyone... I finally got a hold of Jazmin today because my e-mails never went through! (They always send you an error message, and even when they don't, they weren't going through) she was very helpful and is going to get back to me with pictures of the mixed grill because she is doing one tonight (let's hope this happens!!)

She sent me the same message yesterday, that she's doing the dinner tonight and would send pictures! We only have 25 guests and she said she agreed with FH (errr...she's supposed to be on my side...lol) that the theme dinner was not a good option for us since it would be too much money since there is a 50 guest minimum. I think that's the first time a wedding vendor has tried to talk me into the cheaper option..lol. She said that "the mix grill option is like a thematic dinner but less food and options." I can't wait to see the pictures she sends!

Martha, any update on your BIL? You haven't been on lately so I hope he's okay!

Jazmin just sent me pictures of the mixed grill so I thought I would post them for others to see. I emailed her back as she originally told me that the mixed grill was served with disposable cutlery and plates yet in these pictures, it's 'real' dishes. I'll let you know what she says when she responds!

 

Also, with the mixed grill she said only beer and soda's are included. So she sent me pictures of the wine list as well. She said you can add international bar which included house wine for I think $24 USD/per/hour but for our group (since there's only 25 of us) it would be better for us to just purchase bottles of wine as it would cost less then the int'l cocktails.

 

Anyway, here's the pictures :)

ETA: Sorry the pictures are fuzzy, the only way I could make them smaller was to reduce the size of the file and it made them all not as clear.

Wow that is a nice setup. We are now considering having a private reception as well. Just nervous that it may be too chilly to have everything outside since we are getting married in Feb.

Martha, I hope your BIL is doing better. We haven't heard anything from you, so I hope all is well.

 

For those doing the mixed grill, how much is that per person?

Hey Carrie. Yes, we miss Martha! I hope everything is okay with her family.

 

I am doing a four night babysitting gig right now for a family (mom and dad went to Newport Rhode Island, I figured they needed some alone time!) but when I stop home I will post the amount for the mixed grill... it may already be posted somewhere on the thread. It seems more affordable than the theme dinner, and the minimum of people is 35 rather than 50 for the theme dinners. I opted for the private dinner because it seemed more intimate, and I did not want the guests to use their a la carte night for our reception.

The mixed grill is $20 US/per person. So not only is it half the price, but if you have less then 50 guests, you're also saving because the minimum number of guests is less. We'll only have 25 people so for us, we'll pay the minimum amount no matter what we choose. For the BBQ theme it works out to $2300 (50 * $46) but with the Mixed grill, it's only $700 (35 * $20). So for us - with 25 guests, the BBQ theme dinner works out to $92 pp while the mixed grill is only $28 pp.

 

Here's the prices for all the dinners. The prices for wedding packages go up November 1st, I'm not sure if the dinner prices went up to. The prices I have are the ones up to Oct 2008.

 

 

Theme Dinners

*Minimum of 50 people

*includes 'all-inclusive' drinks

Gala Dinner: $72

BBQ: $46

Mexican: $46

Caribbean: $48

 

Private Meals

*Minimum of 35 people

*includes beer and soda only

*All of these meals will be served with disposable cutlery and dishes

Paella: $20

-Seafood Paella, Sangría

Mixed Grill: $20

-Arrachera steak, pork cutlet, chicken, sausage

Taquiza: $15

-5 varieties of Tacos with rice, beans and guacamole

I believe those are the same prices Jazmin gave us and we are getting married June 2009. For the dancing reseption with DJ directly after the mixed grill dinner, we are going to have the special cocktails which I believe are $5 per person the first hour and $3 per person each additional hour which whill be $28 in total for food and drink perperson for the reception. Yeah, the theme dinners are a lot, esp. if you are not sure if your number of guests will be near 50.

    • 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
