Hey, Has anyone had any experience modifying the wedding themes that they give you... ie: adding feathers or ribbons etc.?? I've contacted them but haven't heard anything back yet... Also, for the ladies that got married this year, how did it go???

Qupid21 - Hi, I spoke with Ana earlier this week and she says it is okay to bring your own decor etc. So if there are specific elements you would like that she cannot supply; you can bring your own options too.

Thats a fantastic idea, maybe even put some white sand in the bottom then some sea shells followed by the flowers?  I was thinking the same thing.  How are you getting your center peices to the resort?  Are you shipping everything you are brining for the wedding ahead of time?

Hey Ladies,

 

Just got my package from the resort with the flower, cake options and locations. Has anyone modify anything here such as flowers, cake. If so was it an extra charge? I think I am Ok with the white calla lilies, but would like to see what other people did. For the cake, not crazy about the flowers or ribbons they used! Are they usually good about adjusting them to the colours, flowers you prefer or is it exactly what you see.

 

On another note, something strange they told me I never heard was that "the transportation fee for the justice of the peace and the apostille seal for the marriage certification are not include in the wedding package, it has an extra charge of 70usd each, and so this payment must be in cash and will be paid upon arrival to the wedding coordinator." I never heard anyone talk about this in the threads, unless i totally missed it. Is this true? I picked the Paradise package so i thought all of that was included.

I have a question concerning tipping.  For traditional weddings it is customary to tip15-20% for everyone providing a service. However, the resort packages everything together for one price.  How much are you planning to tip the wedding coordinator? 20% of my package cost would be almost $1000!

@guillane87 yes, you have to pay extra for those fees if you are having a civil ceremony. Every resort charges that. I checked a ton befor we finalized our decision. As for changing options youbdefinitely can. Some things do have another charge, you just have to ask for what you want and make sure you get detailed pricing in writing before you head down there. I upgraded my bouquet and that was an extra fee. @qupid you can bring your own decor And they will set it up for you

    • 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.
