Hi Jenna,

 

Was wondering if you had any pictures of hair & makeup that you wouldn't mind sharing?? I wanted to show my bridal party examples of the resort salons work so they can decide if they want to go that route or do their own.

Thanks!

Hey ladies does anyone know if Oceans T&C have options for wedding favours that you can order?? Specifically thinking of little tequila bottles....

The thought of bringing a whole bunch of wedding favors down with me is scary, so I was thinking maybe they have some options there??

 

Thanks,

Amanda

Hey, did anyone ever find out about the little tequila bottles? We wanted to do that too...along with the traditional wedding cookies. Also, any opinions on the resorts photography/videography, hair/makeup?

So I talked to Daniel & he said they don't have the tequila bottles through the resort, but he sent me some info about a store nearby that does sell them. He said you would have to go as soon as you arrive though to order enough I guess?

not sure if theres another company to outsource in the area either?

I think im just gonna do the tequila bottles at the reception we're gonna have here...Its pricier, but I don't really want to be shopping for wedding supplies on the trip.

Let me know if you find a company there that you can order from in advance.

Jill, we made custom labels for mini Patron bottles, got a quantity discount for them from our local liquore store, and brought them down there in our luggage. Check your airline allowance for liquor, but you will more than likely be under it (we were- with 45 mini bottles) Also, I have my template I made for the labels if you want to use it... here is what we did :

That's a good idea! I saw them at the liquor store, so where did u print the template at? I thought I'd have to do tags attached but I like that idea too...I work at vistaprint so I wonder if there's a way to print something up there...

We attached tags with everyone's name and table number, and used them as place cards. I just bought Avery perforated tags that have a hole already in them, and used a template for those online...added everyone's name, etc. then tied them to the bottles with hemp rope when I got there (didn't want the tags to bend in transit)

I made the template for the labels, I have it on my computer, I'll have to email it to you. Email me at sarah8196 @ gmail.com

 

To make them, I cut them out, and used Modge Podge to put them right over the original Patron Label. It didn't take too long and everyone LOVED them. We did a tequila shot toast at the reception, and the hotel provided us with shot glasses and limes for everyone.

    • 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.
