Thanks Chapa for the info.  I've emailed them to see if our date is free and it is, now we just have to decide if we want to go this route or not.  If we get a few more people booking I'd like to.

I will look and see if I have any videos of his style. He blends the songs together so it sounds awesome and everyone in my group loved it! He also gives out props such as balloons, masks, glow sticks and did cold fireworks during our first dance.

That's great to hear as I'm going backwards and forwards about having a meal elsewhere but it would severely mess with the budget.  I would LOVE to see your photos.

Have a brilliant time.  Your wedding will be beautiful even if it snows I'm sure.

I did my hair at 11am for a 3pm wedding and it was fast. I was the only one getting my hair and makeup done and was the only one in the salon.

I have no clue lol, past brides what have you done and brides to be what are your plans?  I will just have my MOH, no other bridesmaids, want to get some pictures done before the ceremony but there's only so many photo ops with 2 people. 

Any advice? 

 

 



 



When i looked into it it didn't make $$ sense for transport. We were already going to get tagged with baggage fees so it turned out to be about $40 less then just renting them so for the ease of it I rented

Thanks everyone!



 



It's going to be AWESOME! We will do a rain rain stay away dance for you!

I did the trial and I am glad I did because I ended up playing around with the make-up and do ing something different then what I orginally thought

Thanks again!

awesome, thanks!

I just booked me for 10am, weddings at 3pm.  I figured better to have more time than not enough.  That way we can get some lunch and relax a bit too (hopefully)

I didn't have my 2 bridesmaids get their hair done until 2pm and they still needed to do their makeup afterwards so that ended up being a little rushed. I should have done 1pm for them considering the timing my photographer wanted to maintain.

Mahalo, could you add me to fb?  I have been speaking to Caribe about what we want for our pictures and would really appreciate if I could see yours.  It's Nicole Meldrum, my profile pic is of my son sitting in the grass :)

    • 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.
