Lauren,

Your photos are AMAZING! Absolutely stunning, and looking through your review and gallery made me soooo much more excited! (which I thought was IMPOSSIBLE!)

Thank you so much for taking the time to review and report back. It's definitely helped me out already. Thanks girls!

Hey Jess,

I agree, a welcome "first night" dinner is a great idea. We are looking at hosting a fun night at the Cheeky Monkey, which is just down the beach at the edge of the Malecon. Its supposed to be a great, fun and popular place-- Almost every travel review for the Dreams PV mentions it.

If you're looking for something a little less "pubby" and a little more chic, I've head that Le Kliff is a great venue to host dinner.

We decided it was an additional +$100 expense we didn't need and just handed them out at the welcome party or as people arrived. However, I was a little disappointed because i thought it would be so fun for people to open doors and have their bags...
I definitely agree that the extra $3 per room ends up being a useless expense. Rebeca (New WC) said it's basically a tip for the people delivering them. I asked if I could just get a room list from the front desk, so that we could deliver them personally -- a great way to say hello, and welcome -- and she said she could definitely arrange it.

Agreed, though. It would be nice to have the surprise awaiting in the room.

By the Wayofftopic2.gif-- Fun Welcome Basket Idea:

I bought a bulk pack of tiny shells from Michaels and a spool of purple thread (my accent color). My BMs and I are going to lace one shell onto a necklace / Bracelet length thread and turn each one into a "wish chain." The idea is that you make a wish on the shell, and then you knot the thread on, and when it breaks your wish comes true. It's cute and romantic, made a very cheap and easy addition to the wedding baskets.

We have chosen not to do programs or menus... mainly because I ran out of time and as far as the program goes, it wasn't important to me... I wanted to do a signature drink but haven't been able to get organized enough to design something for the bar - check out Lauren's stuff - it is awesome for the menus and the signature drinks!!!

I am totally excited (like almost jumping out of my skin excited!) we leave in 16 more sleeps and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!!

Sarah - we'll just miss each other... we leave to come home on the 7th...

Hey Jenn,

I am curious, do you know if the concoctions involved for the signature drinks is extra, or just a touch they'll add to your reception if you request it?

I hadn't even considered this idea until this forum, You brilliant brides ROCK!smile03.gif

I have no idea if it will cost anything more - was going to email Rebeca to see... but I am running out of time so we may not even go with Signature drinks...

Thanks!
Hey Jess,

Here's the website for the Cheeky Monkey CHEEKY MONKEY ONE DOLLAR BEERS & MARGARITAS EVERYDAY!

It's very, very casual, but looks like a TON of fun. They have $1 beers and margaritas, always ingredients for a good time. lol

Apparently they have great food aswell, there is a review on tripadvisor.com, and it's nothing but raves!

Hey Jess

If you seach Dreams PV on tripadvisor.com and tehn scroll down to the bottom right-hand corner of the page you will find "hotels nearby" and it lists several alternatives to AIs in the area.

Hope that helps!
Cheers!

    • 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
