Jaclyn - thanks! I saw your pics on FB. They look awesome! Now that I'm done with my other girlfriends weddings (I had two...) I can get more excited about my own....

 

Jess - when it gets closer, I'll totally contact you and we exchange numbers to meet up. Our hotel is in San Marcos and we usually go to Churchills! fun times there! I get to gather at the brewery about 4 times a year and since I used to live in SD, I always try to go out one night while I'm there and get away from the co workers.

And how fun, Las Vegas! I'll be in vegas on Aug 28th for another friends bachelorette party! My bday is on the 27th and this is the second year in a row I have a bachelorette party on my birthday, but I guess turning 27 isn't a big deal..... wink.gif

Hi girls - quick question. Are you doing a welcome dinner somewhere or a get together at Dreams once everyone gets there?

I'd like to do something at Dreams, like drinks/appetizers on the beach but I'm guessing that could get pricey. Does anyone have a price list for something like that? If not I'll just email Rebeca again.

Thanks!

Hi Karen, I was going to do a welcome dinner at Dreams but I think it is around $29 per head? I could be wrong though.

 

We found a bunch of places outside of the resort in the $20 range so we are going to do that - plus, I think it will be nice to get outside the hotel.

We are going to do our ceremony at 4:30 because it will be over by 5; although the sun sets at 5:30 in November, there is still daylight for a while so we'll still get a good hour in for pictures. Although maybe we should move it back to 4 just to safe (if it's a cloudy day, for instance). I ran it by our photographer since I figured she had experience and would know about the lighting.

 

We aren't doing a welcome dinner...too many people arriving on different days. But we are doing a welcome "happy hour" every night in one of the bars....which basically means the FI and I will be there for anyone who wants to stop by and say hi or see what's up for the next day, etc.

Those are both really good ideas - thanks so much! We've got a lot to think about.

You might be right, Jess, about the cost. I need to email Rebeca to check on that. I agree, it would be really nice to go into town if we want a dinner. And if we don't end up doing a dinner, a welcome happy hour just to touch base w/ people would totally work.

I was just getting caught back up on the posts and noticed yours on 6.03... OMG... I may be wrong but I think you saw my wedding... Was it on May 22nd. I got married in front of Oceana and yes my coordinator kept me hidden very well until I walked down the isle.

 

My guests waited under the palapas until right before the wedding party came out. We had our ceremony at 6pm. which was perfect but still scorching hot.... the best part is no one really cares in the moment.

 

I have been so busy since coming home, plus moving, etc, etc.... I will try to post a review soon.

 

My guests had an aamzing time at Dreams....

    • 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.
