Newbie...ROR May 2010

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I am new to this site but I am hoping to learn as much as I can from you all! I am recently engaged and have always known I did not want to have a "normal" wedding. All of my friends who are married were so stressed out on their wedding day that they never got the chance to really enjoy it and that does not sound like something I want to do. We had planned to go to Riu Yuctan to get married because we had been there before but after finding out that it would cost us $1,750 just for the wedding and we wouldn't be able to even understand the priest we looked at other locations and decided on Riu Ocho Rios in Jamaica. I am very excited!!


I hope to learn a lot from you all!

Yay 2010!!! Hopefully it will come sooner than it seems right now!


We made our DW decision for the exact same reasons... there is no stress allowed on the beach! Congratulations and happy planning!!!

    • 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.
