Hi ladies! :)

 

We're getting married at the Grand Riviera Princess on April 28th 2010.

 

I was wondering if anyone could give me some info on the DJ options for regular music (for example, if we wanted songs from an Ipod)? Also, do any of you know of a photographer that is reasonably priced? We're trying to stay budget-conscious, while still getting the most out of our day!

 

Not really sure what to expect... Although, after reading some of the comments and reviews on here, I definitely feel good about our choice! :)

I have been told the DJ is set up with a mac book, so I don't whay you wouldn't be able to bring down your ipod and have him play some songs from it :) One of the wedding coordinators should be able to have that question answered for you.

As for the photographer, we aren't having one so I can't help you there. I do know that you have to pay a fee for them to come on to the property. The resort has their own photographer. I am not sure if he/she is any good. From what I understand, they take pictures of your wedding, and then give you the option of purchasing them. If we go this route, I will let you know how the pics turn out. But we have enough people in our group that take fantastic pictures, so we are mostly relying on them. Cutting out the photog has allowed us to afford the beach party :)

Thanks :)

 

At first, we were thinking of cutting out the photographer as well, but most recently, I've been second guessing myself on that! I've started looking around, just thought I'd ask just in case :)

 

We're also going with the beach party :)

Ladies....what did everyone do or plan to do when it comes to room choice. I just got the price for upgrades and I'm on the fence with what to do. Part of me says....how much time do you actually spend in the room? The other part says....it's my wedding/honeymoon, an upgrade is a must - not to mention a bigger room would be great for greating ready with the girls day of!

I was in the same boat as you about 4 months ago :) We decided not to upgrade because we know we won't be spending anytime in the room except when we are sleeping. We also are skimping wherever we can because money has gotten tighter and tighter since we got engaged and we wanted to be able to do the beach party.

I say if money isn't really an issue, splurge!! You have a really good point about getting ready that day. You could also ask for a free upgrade when you get down there...that is my plan. I will let you know how it goes!

When we were there, I was upgraded. The bride got ready in a normal room however. I will say, it was a lot smaller than our room, and I did offer our room to get ready in instead. However, it worked just fine.

The big difference is the seating area and the bathroom. Our bathroom was larger and had a sliding window so you could get natural light in there (for putting on makeup and such, but also so everyone can be part of the getting ready process).

So, do you have to upgrade, definitely not. Was it larger... yes. If you have a large bridal party, then I'd seriously consider it. But if it's a lot more expensive, it might not be worth it.

    • 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.
