elefant.gifCongratulations! Reading your venue makes me soooo excited to go!

 

Quick questions:

Did you bring the freeze dried petals down with you? If so, any trouble at customs?

Great Review! If you are still checking, I have one question. How much stuff did you take with you and how did you go about getting it all through customs?

Yes, I used freeze dried petals (those are the only ones allowed). I didn't have any problems with customs, but my bags were not opened... so I was not questioned about them. I would suggest they are packed in a way that it is not the first thing they see if they happen to check your bag.

My husband and I had 2 suitcases worth of "stuff", 2 suitcases with our clothes, 1 carry-on suitcase, and one garment bag. There was a lot of wrapping that took up a considerable amount of space. I also had other things (like maracas and personalized mugs) that were really bulky. Of all my trips down to Mexico (5+ times), my bags have never been inspected. I guess I have been lucky... I don't think you'll have a problem with customs unless you are bringing in something that they regulate (i.e. alcohol). The issue will be with the airlines (excess baggage weight or too many checked in pieces of luggage).

Thanks for the information! My big concern is getting it all down there. Fortunately for us, We have one Mexican airlines that is non-stop down there. If need be, I have offered to pay for extra bags for several people if we need help.

 

Also, we are going down the Sunday before our Saturday wedding. Most of the guest are coming down on Thursday. Currently, there is only one flight that Thursday and I think my wedding guests and family take up most of it. I saw on another post about a big hit that I am going to do. They handed out strips of material to all their guest to tie on ALL their bags. This way the wedding guest and family can recognize who on the plane is flying with them to our wedding party. I was thinking of getting some faux suede in Orange and Stitching "Cancun" on them. I have a sewing machine that does this and have several months to work on it. People can also see it if they are walking through the lobby.

    • 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.
