Hi Ladies,

Are you doing a rehersal dinner with just the bridal party and parents or a welcome dinner for everyone who is attending the wedding?

 

Thanks for the advice!

We are doing a welcome dinner, not a rehearsal dinner. It is for everyone, because we have 30 guests and we feel we should gather all of them together before the wedding so that they all meet each other and feel comfortable before the BIG day. Also because we want to thank them for coming and want to make all of them feel welcome.

TA Jennifer-

 

I really appreciated reading through your review. I am having my wedding at ERC on April 23, 2010. My only question to you was about the wedding packages and you mentioned that they were willing to swap out certain options in the package in exchange for others and were happy to customize the wedding package. I spoke to Veronica and she said that all items were non-transferrable and non-refundable. Do you know how I can go about changing out the options in the wedding package? Is there any advice you can give for when I talk to the wedding coordinator about this?

 

Much thanks,

ShannonLeigh

Yay! We just booked our honeymoon at ERC for 5 nights after our wedding at the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya. I can't wait for 16 nights in Mexico!!! The Excellence looked beautiful and I can't wait to be down there.

Shannon,

 

You will probably not be able to change anything in your package. Anything that you'd want to add- she will tell you it's extra. I advise you to choose the package that has as much of what you need as possible. We chose the Excellence Gold package, because it includes almost everything, like some ceremony and reception decor, bridal hair, bouquet, etc. And these things are really expensive. Even then, we are adding things to the package. Veronica is probably a nice person, but since she works for the resort, she will try to charge you for everything and anything, so make sure you read everything carefully, like emails from her and wedding package details.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
