I haven't logged onto this site in a while so I'm very pleasantly surprised to see that we have quite a group of brides getting married at Azul Sensatori! I think everyone shares the same concerns and agitations, and I believe that this is largely driven by the fact that the hotel isn't open yet. I have been in contact with Fabio both on the phone and email. Talking to him personally on the phone made me feel A LOT better about the hotel and the timing of the planning process. It doesn't look like anyone will be able to have a sense of where they can have their ceremony, reception, etc until a later date - from what I've learned, this is largely driven by legal capacities for all the areas, something they have yet to determine. That's the part that's driving me crazy as I would love to have some sort of 'vision' of where everything will be held.

 

I'm doing my site visit in December and will definitely post whatever I learn from that trip.

 

The whole no outside vendor policy is difficult to deal with, especially when I dont feel like Lomas Travel posts very many options on their website.

 

Unfortunatley I don't have much to share at this point. I'm in the painful process of trying to figure out how good the band is that Lomas offers. There is something about having Lomas that makes me feel so helpless in terms of pricing. oh well... that's the wedding industry.

 

Looking forward to staying on this post and sharing learning from all!

Since there are quite a few of us now, I created a roll call so we can keep up with everyones dates. It also would be fun to post site visits, I know how much we are all looking forward to those.

If your name and date wasn't included, copy and paste, click reply and add your name and date.

I'm so excited to see this list grow!

Wow!!! It's really cool to see how quickly this group has grown. grouphug.gif

 

I paused on the details for the same reasons as most of you. I'm eager to continue reading about the responses we receive from Fabio and Nancy. Sharing information will definitely help us all in the planning process.

 

 

I can share only this information so far (not much - sorrysad.gif ) hopefully more soon!

 

Type of Ceremony: Civil (legal)

Ceremony Time/ Location: 3pm, Beach

Cocktail Time/Location: ??

Reception Time/Location: ?? (we'd prefer a private reception)

Photographer:??

Videographer:??

colors/theme:?? (I'm torn between simple organic and vibrant tropical)

 

 

 

BTW - The 3pm ceremony time is not my first pick. Fabio told me that there was another wedding already booked at 5pm and the judge was only avail for my ceremony at 3pm or 6pmblah.gif. I was pretty hesitant at first but I"ll make 3pm work.

 

The 'type A planner' in me would have liked everything already confirmed. I'll consider this a test of my patience and sanity. Nice to know I'm not alone.

3 pm, that's just a longer time to party friday.gif Ours is at 5:00 pm and I worry it's going to make the night seem short. I really want to know what time the other wedding is that day. Hmmm, maybe she'll find us!

My ceremony is scheduled for 3:30 pm all the way down in Playa del Carmen. Our families really wanted us to have a religious Catholic ceremony and I believe that is the closest church, with 100+ capacity that will perform our ceremony for us. We figure that we'll be back at the resort by 5/5:30, take pictures, join our private cocktail hour and reception, and party on the rest of the night.

 

Partying can happen all day and all night, but keep sunset time in mind when thinking of your ceremony and reception (and pictures!). My photographer told me about a wedding he did down there this past April and I believe the sun was pretty much completely set by 7/7:30. The couple got married at 6pm and by the time they were taking pictures on the beach it was already dark.

    • 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
