I had this same exact question' date=' does anyone know if I cna just pay everything with a Credit card? The entire wedding, cocktail party, etc? I think the DJ needs to be in cash. What about the hair services?QUOTE']

We charged all of our wedding expenses to our credit card, including all of the spa services that we used. They just add any spa services to your room bill. They are pretty eager to get their money for the wedding. They want you to pay on the day of your wedding. After the meeting with the WC where you make all of your final decisions about flowers, etc. they will provide you with a complete list detailing the amount for you to confirm before you go to pay.

When they charge your credit card it is all done in Pesos and is coverted by your credit card company. Also, the resort does not cash US travellers cheques for US cash, they will only give you Pesos which was a pain in the a**. For that reason I would encourage taking more cash than travellers cheques (although you can exchange for US in Playa del Carmen). We ended up getting stuck with a bunch of US travellers cheques.

Hope this helps you out! Let me know if I can answer anything else.

The items that must be paid in cash are the DJ, the musicians if you're hiring some, and the blood test. Everything else except the $300 fee to the photo shop for not using them is charged to your room in pesos as ryan's girl mentions above. The spa fee can also be charged to your room. The fee to the photo shop can be paid by credit card.

Have you had any problems with them allowing everyone to eat at one of these scheduled events even if they didn't have enough vouchers? Please let me know what happened and how you worked it out. Thanks!
I wrote this earlier and didn't see where anyone responded so I figured I would give it another whirl in case there are any takers..... how can we include guests who don't have enough meal vouchers for all of the planned dinners? Are they strict or is there a price per person that we can pay if they aren't eating on a voucher? Any info would be helpful thanks!!

    • 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.
