Is anyone doing this or have talked to Jacy about this??
We havn't really gotten into the details yet. We are thinking about having the buffett dinner in the gazebo. I think(maybe someone who has been there can clarify) that baracuda bar is nearby. I thought we could do apps and cocktail hour there while they set up the dinner service?

I really was not going to go into the details with Jacy until about end of March. It so hard deciding on things when you haven't actually been to the spot. Most likley I will buy chair sashes, table runners, lanterns and draping so that if we use the gazebo for any part of the cermony/reception I'll be covered. If we decide to do things on the beach only we can decorate the arch with the draping.

I really still have so many questions, but kind of got the impression that its too early to decide on things. BUT you girls seem to be planning these things so I dont know.....blush2.gif

I don't think its too early to think about it... but I really don't think Jacy cares this far ahead. I think for her its easier to just decide everything once we are there or close to the date.


On another note... Still no word from Jacy or the GM regarding my email that I sent almost 2 weeks ago.

I've noticed a lot of girls have had to change their mind about this resort because the prices have gone up, If things go up.. they must come down right? When did you book yours and was it a good deal? Did you find that your price quotes were comparable? I just don't want to ask my guest to spend TOO much money.


Some other questions.

1. Did you book through a charter flight?

2. Did you book through your airline?

3. For Canadian brides, were you able to get a Canadian quote?


I havn't booked mine yet and alittle hesitant if they prices are going to go down.. do you know when the prices go down? if at all?

Any info you can share will help :) thank you

I finally heard back from the GM at DPA. I should get answers to my questions sometime today hopefully... I went on a (online) shopping spree this weekend :)

I got my OOT bags, cake topper, swarovski crystals to decorate it. I think thats it... It felt like a lot more.

Glad that you got a response (FINALLY) Bianca! Plus how fun that you picked up your bags and other goodies for the wedding...What kind of bags did you go with?


Rainfall --Welcome! I am not sure how US prices and procedures differ from Canada. There have been a couple Canadian brides that have posted on this thread, so hopefully they will chime in!

    • 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.
