Hola, newbie here!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I'm in the throes of planning our wedding here in Sevilla, Spain (where we live, I'm American, he's Spanish) next April 2008. It's not your typical DW but I have lots of OOT guests to deal with and lots of the same struggles of a traditional DW....

 

I'm surprised that this board doesn't cover Europe at all? I find that strange as there are certainly lots of brides marrying in Europe...

 

Look forward to chatting with you all, I love being a bride-to-be and everything about weddings in general!

I love Seville!!! So beautiful.

 

The reason that we don't have as many Europe brides is because this forum started as a cabo wedding site only and expanded from there. Fotini is getting married in Greece. We love to have new Europe brides!!!!

Sarita-

I'm so jealous!!! I love Sevilla. I lived there for a year while I was studying abroad. I cried all the way home when I had no choice, but to come back after the summer for my senior year. I thought for sure I'd be back after graduation, living there permanantly. I had my Spanish boyfriend, that I thought I'd marry, my job picked out, and everything. I even had the airplane tickets back. Then in May, a couple of weeks before graduation, I met my FI...and my life did a complete 180. Now, I'm back in my hometown teaching second grade to Spanish-speaking students, and in a lot of ways Sevilla is a distant memory. I love my FI, more than anything in the world, and wouldn't change a thing...but part of me can't help to wonder what life might have been :) I fell in love with that city...how I'd loved to go back and walk through my old neighborhood (Triana), y la judería, y las plazas y los parque...y por supuesto, la calle Serpientes.....y Zara (cuánto echo de menos esa tienda). And what a great time of year it is there right now...la Semana Santa and la Fería must be just around the corner. I still have my flamenco dress and can remember los sevillanos (although some of the pasos are beginning to fade away). The lace of my wedding dress reminded my of Spain, and I instantly knew it was the one. Sorry, I'm rambling, but reading your post has brought back a flood of memories. I can't wait to hear more about the wedding!

    • 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.
