Dreams Cancun - 8-31-08 wedding review (long with pics)

Recommended Posts

Thanks Dawn! That answers my questions really well! The bouquets are stunning! I think I'll just go with them, I don't want to sweat over trying to get something specific that they don't have or that will complicate it-- yours are gorgeous! I cannot wait to see your pro pics, your profile pic is amazing. The link didn't work for me either. Your and Kat's weddings were so beautiful. prayer1.gif

Thank you your review. Did you have to use certain photographers or do you have the freedom to choose whoever you want without getting charged a $500 fee? Also, how were the rooms and the bathrooms? Are they outdated or a little on the small side? Did you pay extra for the reception dinner or were you allowed to have a semi-private dinner in one of the restaurants without getting charged extra? I have so many questions because I am still trying to decide on a resort. I was originally going to have it at Dreams Puerto Aventuras, but now I'm hearing that you can't use a mexican photographer at all, which I think is outrageous.

Ohh I want you to see them now that I've talked them up so much!! Does this work: Flickr: Photos & Video from dawnandchriswedding

I used an awesome photographer named Claudia Rodriguez. She wasn't part of the resort but she does have a good relationship with them so she is able to go and shoot weddings without a fee. I think that the fee is only $50 though if it is not an approved vendor. It may be free... not positive.
Our room was awesome and huge! The bathroom was enormous too... double sink, bathtub/shower, toliet and a bidet! All of our guests were happy with their rooms too as far as I know. Feel free to PM me with any other questions you have and if you send me your email and I will send you all of our photos. Good luck!!

I've heard rain is good luck. I think thats just what people say so their not so disappointed. It did give us an amazing rainbow though so i can't complain too much!!

    • 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
