It was FRIGGIN awesome. I mean, REALLY awesome. We had the DJ set up on stage, the BIG room was cut in 1/2 and it was perfect for the amount of people we had. The convention center is beautiful, but very plain inside. My only advice is if you're doing it in there, bring decorations, because there aren't really any. Not even paintings on the wall. Once I get all my info together, I'll post a youtube video of it.

We are VERY happy we had it there for a number of reasons. #1, the wind on the beach is unpredictable. #2, we had a big fat greek wedding, so if we had it near the pool, one of our guests would have definitely wound up in it #3, we wanted to be able to be loud and party like animals (which we did).
#4 we wanted our party to run late if people we movin and grovin, which EVERYONE was =)

It was friggin awesome.

Hope that helped.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! You gave me great things to think about. I am definitely seriously thinking of having the reception indoors! I can't wait to read your review!

So ladies, words of advice ensure you talk to the videographer (Fabio) prior to him leaving. I have emailed him twice and also sent Natalia an email. I have no problem paying for another DVD but seriously, wanna hear my vows on my wedding video...is that soooo much to ask for? Grrrrr....

I am so sorry to hear your video wasn't what you expected. Now I'm a little nervous too. I just got back on Friday, and they told me it would be around a week to get the video to us. How long did it take for you to receive it? Do you have his email address? I'd like to make sure of a few things prior to him completing ours!!!
I'll write a review soon. Once I get my pictures up and ready!!!

And for all future brides that were curious about the reception/dinner on the beach...we had 50 people total, and it worked out perfectly. We had the sound system, and we didn't rent the dance floor. I thought it was way too expensive.

 

But I was a little pissed about having to pay for the sound system twice since it was the same exact system!!! It just had to get moved about 50 yards. But the dance portion was fine without the floor and everyone seemed to have a blast!!

 

The food and service was amazing. We used the silver menu even though we had the Ultimate package, we had to pay for the additional 30 people, so we decided to go with that one. And everyone raved about the food. We chose the fish steak which was Mahi Mahi and it was great. The chicken caeser salad was really good as well.

 

Overall, I was so pleased with how it all went. I'll post more soon!

Hey Dreams425...we just came back from the Dreams this morning and had an AMAZING wedding...the day couldn't have been better (other then Anabel kind of forgetting to bring the vows we had written to the ceremony) and there wasn't a drop of rain in the two weeks! I know you are already there but if you are checking emails...we had our reception on the beach and it was AWESOME...we didn;t have a dance floor and everyone loved dancing in the sand....and honestly by the time you're actually done eating there isn;t much time to dance. We danced for about 2 hours then our whole party moved to the Disco.

Ok, please don't kill me for asking this question... but I just need clarification ONE more time.

 

We don't have a DJ, but rather I've put together a playlist on my ipod. Do I need to bring an ipod docking station with me or will the resort provide one for us to dock the ipod into? We are planning on renting the speaker system. Also, does the ipod docking station charge the ipod while the ipod is playing? (I ask because it would be so bad if the ipod ran out of batteries during out reception... haha!)

 

Thanks for any information anyone can provide!

That's exactly what we did...had a playlist and the guy just showed Kirk how to work it and left it for us. It was really easy and in reality we had it playing from 6:30 until 10:30 and the battery was fine.....I don't think the battery charges when it is plugged into the system but you're battery won't go dead in that short of time.

Hi, can anyone let me know if there are power outlets at the front of the chapel? Preferably on the left hand side (as you face towards front). Also our guitarist has a portable amp and some kind of special effects pedal to plug in, will they lend me an extension and adapter or should I bring my own.

 

Also we are not hiring the speaker system but If I wish to use a power outlet will I have to pay?

 

If you dont have to pay extra to be "plugged in" is it not possible to run our ipods from a power socket rather than worry about extra batteries? I have seen numerous people outside the seaside grill on the beach with lanterns and tree lights at receptions so there must be a local power supply, is it not poss to hook into this?

 

Any help appreciated. x

    • 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.
