I just find it so irritating getting in touch with the WC at Dreams it gets discouraging.

I know it is frustrating but believe it or not you get used to it. If it is any consolation all the brides say that it all works out fine in the end, They really have it together.

I am planning on bringing my own napkins... His and her flutes... Cake knife set... and the petals...

I don't know if there is anything else I need though... Do we need to bring our own cake toppers? Since I haven't been able to get any photos of the cakes, I don't know if they just decorate them with flowers?

they do decorate your cakes with flowers if you wish but you can bring your own cake topper..Im bringing my napkins also

i only told them what i wanted on the inside. i did ask about flowers, but a single gerbera daisy would have cost about $7!!!! totally not worth it to me. cake #1 is quite ugly, but i didn't care about looks. that was the tres leches cake, which was VERY good. cake #2 isn't as ugly, but tasted like dried poop.

Lana, I may have read your first question wrong but it is my understanding that they provide white table linens (including napkins) but charge if you want colored linens. They do the full set up with plates, silverware and glasses but most gals bring some type of centerpiece. If you are trying to keep a tight budget, I wouldn't worry about colored linens and just bring something for the centerpieces in your colors. Things like that are where they nickel and dime you and in the end, it is not worth it if you're trying to save. The setting is so beautiful and those are some times the details that only a fellow bride or bride to be will notice and care about.

 

But bringing them would definitely be cheaper!

You can set most of it up when you get there. I would make sure if you have any really hard to handle requests you make them before hand though.

What kind of credit (how much in dollars) do they give you if you decide not to go with their center pieces and bring your own center piece? I cant needing too many center pieces because Im only having a reception for about 30.

    • 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.
