History Of BDW Forum

Recommended Posts

Me too. I always wondered how it all started. I know since I joined even in the last 6 months there have been a TON of new members.

 

Tammy - you are a saint. This forum has been a godsend to so many people. From the bottom of my heart I thank you!

Also, does anyone know many men we have within this community? we have had about a dozen grooms on the forum...more than you think because they do not always "out" themselves as being the groom

 

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Tammy Wright for creating this great community! It's a lot different from the other forum boards I've been involved with. Maybe one of the reasons for that is that it's full of sweet understand women who don't jump on you the first chance they get like a lot of men would! love.gif This stress free and inviting environment saved me a ton of time with resort referrals, photographer referrals, and personal member testimonies. I really don't know what I would have done without it! awww...thanks...i've always said it was the members that make this palce so great and our awesome mod squad...i just run the technical stuff (well more like i tell my husband what i need done)

Well said, Sarah! It's hard work keeping this forum free of spam and anoying vendors, while also allowing vendors to participate. Good work, ladies!

I'm sure you were one of the originals. I was the first Caletas bride, and the first Puerto Vallarta bride, with Amy right there with me. It was just a bunch of crazy Cabo brides when I found this forum!




I also wanted to point out that Tammy (host) runs this forum with money out of her own pocket. It has gotten so big, she's had to upgrade several times, and pay for more technical support. YAY for Tammy!

In reference to Ann pointing this out, do you think investing in this forum has been a financial investment for you?

    • 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
