We did not have a DJ. My husbands family is really musical, so althought we wanted to dance for a while, we knew once that was over, we would be moving to a different area and having a guitar sing-a-long. (which was a blast) We stationed ourselves in the large hut where the ice cream machine is (bottom of the main staircase from the lobby). Then the waiters would come down every 15 minutes take drink orders from the Mojoito lounge, head up get the drinks and bring them back to us.

 

As for music: we had prepped playlists on our Ipod. We have a dinner 1, dinner 2, dancing 1, dancing 2, first dance, etc. We rented the amp system ($250 I think), which included speakers, and a mic (we had a lot of speeches and I wanted to make sure everyone could hear.). The resort had a staff member running the amp system. He would set the Ipod to playlist dinner (example) and then when our MC or other guests went up to speak, the staff member faded the music. Once the speech was over he faded the music back on. It was great (and unexpected).

 

And if anyone is wondering, the resort offers the amp system for your ceremony NO CHARGE. So you can have music on an Ipod to play for your ceremony and a mic, so that all your guests hear your nuptials.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi ladies,

 

So now that I have my date, and my place...I am still contemplating whether or not I should have a "private reception"  I really wanted the first dance, and feeling of the dinner being in honor of us.  I will probably have about 35-40 guests  (so far ).  What are everyone's plans in terms of after the ceremony?

 

We are having the sky deck at 4:00 and I haven't decided on anything else. 

  HELP!

MrsKG2B did you figure out a wedding photographer?

 

janaahb, it's ok- you'll figure it out! :) First I'd suggest working out whether a private reception works with your budget. Then prioritize what aspects of your wedding are an absolute must, nice to have, would be okay if skipped, etc.

I am having a cocktail party after my ceremony and before dinner for my guests while we take pictures, but only because my TA got it for us for free as she is a GI consultant.  I have heard of brides not organizing a set event after the ceremony, and that works out fine as well because you're at an AI so people will find their own ways to be entertained/relax.

Having seen other semi private weddings and having had a private of my own I would say totally go for the private. Plaza Zavaz is amazing. You don't need to worry about renting a dance floor, etc. Its your wedding and it should totally feel like you're the most important people!

 

Something to think about.

    • 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.
