Not sure about the mugs.. But I think if you look at MrsSmith2be's review, it looks like she used the artificial flowers for her Huppah

Quick question (first of many cheesy.gif ) - Does anyone know, or has anyone seen people on the resort with their own mugs?  I would like to put some customized ones in the OOT bags, but don't want to go to the trouble if they're not allowed.

 

Also, still looking to see if anyone has pics of the artificial flowers the resort has for the huppa.

 

Thanks!

Tina-  is the dance floor price a flat rate or did she size it according to the amount of people you have coming?

Hello Ladies! I haven't been on here for a while. There has been some amazing information posted as well as the review and pictures. Thanks so much, it's so helpful.

 

I was wondering, does anyone know the name of the Minister/Reverand at the Suites? I was told Rev Thomas  this year by Nicole, but last year she told me Reverend Paul Galamore . I would really like the FULL CORRECT name. I am having ceremony programs printed and need to give 2 weeks notice at the latest. We fly out April 27th. I'm concerned because I've sent 2 emails and haven't heard from Nicole.

She also said she would check with the Steel drum band if they can play the songs we want for the ceremony, but I'm still waiting for an answer. We wanted that in the program too...

 

If anyone knows the Reverands name, that would be super helpful!

Day 1- I'm having the welcome dinner by the pool w/appetizers, open bar and steel drum band.

Day 2- We are paying for all of our guest to do a catamaran cruise which includes drinks and snorkeling

Day 3- Rehearsal dinner

Wedding Day- DJ, dove release, cocktail hour w/appetizers and open bar, dinner, beach party with fire dancers, dance floor on the beach and lounge furniture (my grandma's need to sit lol)

 

Plus I'm doing the OOT bags, passport welcome books and program books by Rebecca.  Parasols, sashes, fans, runners and flowers.

 

To me all of this is the norm I suppose I just didn't expect the price to continue to add up lol....so naive! blush2.gif  Just so happy I had all of the BDW ladies to help me with this experience.  I would be so lost without all of you and your amazing ideas!


Hi Tina!!!

You really make a very good point about guests spending so much to go.  I have also been struggling with this.  But I was wondering who Rebecca is when you were referring to the the OOT bags. Also, are you having a sit down welcome dinner by the pool or do you mean appetizers by the pool and dinner in an a la carte? I emailed Nicole but haven't heard from her yet.  It's been only a week. =)

Hi girls!  I'm just wondering what everyone is doing for dinner & reception.  From the info I have, private restaurant rental is from about 6:30 -10.  The disco can only be rented out privately until 10:30, so it doesn't make sense to do private dinner and then private disco.  But I feel like 10 pm is pretty early to call it a night, and I would like a PRIVATE reception to go a bit later into the night, like midnight at least.  I'm not sure if it makes sense to have a DJ and dancing if we have to clear out by 10 pm.  Am I missing something?  How is everyone else planning the reception?  Is there any way to have the reception last until midnight?

I'm thinking to do dinner (not private) at 6:30, and rent the disco or music bar until 10:30.... and then just join in the party at the disco when it opens. Our parents and my daughter will be ready to head back to the room by the time the disco opens anyways. I'm just hoping that if we let them know we only have 2 hours to be done eating, that they can help us accomplish that, since I've heard dinner service can be pretty slow. But as far as a private reception later at night, that might be hard to accomplish. Even if you did music outside I think I remember seeing a while ago that 10:30 or so is the curfew for music outside. So many rules!

Pintsize- The OOT bags are "Out Of Town" bags which I think are a nice addition for my guest and I'll leave it in every room.  

 

Rebecca is from Allurements, she created my monogram.  She is amazing to work with and is now working on my passport welcome books and my programs.  

 

The welcome dinner by the pool will have a bar set up, the appetizers will most likely be set up buffet style.  We will have tables and chairs set up and the steel drum band will play.  The resort by the pool looks beautiful at night so I'm really excited about it.  It's the day the majority of my guest arrive.

 

Our reception dinner will be at the Calabash and we've rented it out to be private.  I want to be able to have my speeches and first dance as well as our dance with the kids there.

    • 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
