    I am a newbie to this post :) I had originally started planning our wedding in the DR at the Majestic Elegance but am now looking to switch to the DR Aventuras Resort and Spa. I think it will be more affordable for our guests and photog who we will be paying to travel. So here are my questions I hope you can all help me with (feel free to PM, I promise I will get back to you!!)

    1) For those of you who got married here, was it worth it?! YES Absolutely!!
    Everyone, from older adults to young kids had a great time! The resort is small enough that you don't feel like you're running all over the place to meet people. I can't tell you how many times I needed to run back to my room or my niece's room or the other guests rooms to get something or deliver something, and I didn't need a golf cart to do it.

    2) What are the reception and ceremony locations?
    The ceremony was in the Gazebo and it was great! We wanted the reception at the Adult Pool, but because we had kids, and Oceana was open that night. We had the reception on the beach by Lagoon, which was really lovely.3) Can anyone send pictures to me? rhiannon_bs@hotmail.com

    4) What is the average price for 5 nights at the resort plus airfare?
    We paid $1100 total from Newark.

    5) If there is anything else I should know please do share!!
    Any questions please feel free to contact me
    I can't wait to hear back from all you gorgeous brides and brides to be :)

    Thanks guys!! xo Rhiannon
    I answered your questions

          Hey Ladies!

          Lots of great review, really puts me at ease with mine!

          Question for girls who have the starfish -- Where did you guys get yours? I plan on having the star fish on my chairs with the bow... maybe you don't need them anymore and want to sell them to me to be reused? :)

          Thanks

            I bought mine from Seashellco.com but I didn't use them for chairs. I had smallers sized ones that were 2-4 inches that were put on the reception tables. They sell bigger ones if you want them for chairs

                  I got them from target.com. They only sell them online. I now use the platters at home and I love them! I became obsessed with a starfish theme when I was planning our DW...DH still jokes me about it, LOL!

                    Hi Ladies! I love reading all the updates! I am leaving in one week to go tour resorts in Riviera Maya. I am still thinking Dreams Puerto aventura will be our number one. I am sure I will have plenty of questions when I return! Thanks for all the reviews and pics posted...they help so much!

                    I think when we get back I might start dress shopping....too soon?

                      Have fun looking at resorts!!! Can't wait to hear about all your visits when you return. Good luck and keep us posted!

                      As far as dress shopping...in my opinion it's never too early to start. Playing dress up is fun!
