Oh and believe me... The Welcome dinner is almost as wonderful as the reception. When we arrived for the Welcome Dinner at Don Manolo's they had segmented off a private area and had it decorated just like a wedding reception. Since we had seen a previous wedding earlier that day, I thought the dinner was the actual reception for that wedding because the decorating was so elaborate!! Nope.. THAT was our WELCOME DINNER.. They even had a head table for it.!!
Thank you Susan for taking the time to take all those photos and for thinking of us! I really appreciate the info you and Josie have shared! What a beautiful wedding!

HI!! So I have been reading this daily! It has provided me with SOO much helpful information. I am getting married May 22, 2010. Guess I'm starting to kinda get a little overwhelmed! Have not done much and it's hard b/c we are not really sure how many people will be going. I was wondering if you use the photographer at the Riu do you have to contact them a head of time or do you handle that when they contact you about a month prior?? Just don't want to get stuck w/o one!!! Thanks so much for all the great input and ideas!

welcome,dont get overwhelmed enjoy it because believe me it goes soooo quickly.glad you find the thread helpful its been a god send for me.if you have any quires just let us know and we will do our best to advise.lisa+josie have been really helpful to us just lately.regarding the photographer yeh you can use the resort photographer who are called calypso photography (i still havent found their website lisa/josie do you?)or you can have your own but you have to pay for them to enter the resort for the day.

you still have time but the way i got through was make a diary of things you need to do by what date and tick them off as you go along.good luck.

have you tried on dresses yet?

Shellk- I'm still thinking about it! I have lost 17 lbs and would like to lose 12 more before the wedding. If I can lose about 5 lbs by the end of Jan I am going to do the BD shoot for sure! I can't find a good photog around here though with reasonable prices. I need to continue searching!

    • 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.
