Just Married...Wedding Review!

Recommended Posts

HAIR/MAKEUP

 

I had a woman from outside the resort (Stacey) come in to do my hair and makeup. She works at another resort and she is FANTASTIC. She made my hair and makeup look so nice and natural. She also did the hair and makeup of some of the girls. She is very professional and she uses good quality makeup as well.

Some other people in our group used Renova Spa to do their hair and makeup. Their hair and makeup was good also, but I REALLY loved Stacey bunny_4.gif

Here's some pics of hair/makeup...

For the place cards, i used these Wedding Bubbles Bell Shaped bottles, it was really great because people were blowing bubbles everywhere and they came out really nice in the pictures. I just printed out names of people, then punched a hole on the top and tied the paper to the bottles.

Sorry, i really don't have any pictures that show the restaurant. It has mirrors inside on the walls with wood moldings. It's nice on the inside.

The Steak House is not indoors competely, it's the same building that they use for lunch. It's inside a building with no windows so it's nice as well with the fresh air.

Sir Andrew was classified as a seafood place although it had other things on the menu. Rodizio is a brazilian place, but they cannot seat as many people at one time.

I have to say that people in our group who were steak people really enjoyed the Steak House (the shrimp is really good too). I don't really remember the food at Sir Andrew, we were only there once for the rehearsal dinner. The only thing is they gave us a time limit so some of our guests did not eat dessert because there was another big party waiting to come in. But that was our own fault because half of our guests came late to that dinner.

PHOTOGRAPHER

We used Cesar and Tanya Perez from Texas.

They were AMAZING. We could not have found better photographers.

They were so professional and really worked with us to make some great shots. We did 2 sessions with them. The actual day of the wedding and we did about a 2 hour shoot the day after the wedding just on the beach at Riu. We also got all our proofs and it hasn't even been a month since the wedding! They work very fast.

Let them know that Jane and Steven recommended them if you seek out their services smile29.gif

 

Here's some from the day after:

LOVED the pics! Looks like you guys had an amazing time. Did you bring your own flower for your hair or was that something that they provided? Also, did you get your flowers from RIU? If so, did you get to pick your own colors? How does that work exactly?

    • 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.
