Amber and Erin,

 

How long was your reception? I just spoke with Mercy (who I guess is now handling my wedding instead of Ana) said to have a 4 hour reception we have to pay $6 per person up to 30 people and $8 per person over $30. Has anyone else heard this? Did you girls use the dj at all?

 

Also, Erin I noticed you have blue napkins. Did you bring those with you?

Thats kind of messed up I think, how long do they think a reception usually lasts? Most weddings I have been to are atleast 4-5 hours. Amber and Erin, what time was your wedding? and what time did the reception end? Also boston bride...do u know why ana is no longer doing your wedding? I emailed her 2 weeks ago and she hasnt responded which isnt like her. Any one else having this issue?

nbulldog19,

 

I had written to Ana specifically and Mercy responded to my questions for Ana and at that point introduced herself and informed me that she would be working on my wedding. When I wrote back I said something to the effect of does this mean Ana isn't working with me anymore and she didn't respond to that piece of my email sad.gif Has anyone worked with Mercy? So far so good she has answered all of my questions quickly so far. I'm just not to happy about the extra cost to extend our reception from 3 hours to 4 hours.

Boston Bride,

 

If I'm not mistaken, I think Ana is not "performing" weddings so much anymore as much as she is working behind the scenes with them. She is the manager of weddings, group sales, and incentives. Mercy and Lisbeth are sweet girls and are very eager to please you, they even look like alike which is weird!!! LOL Be assured Ana is overseeing everything no matter who your wedding planner might be. They are an awesome team. Also, I'm pretty sure Amber had Mercy for her wedding. When she reads this, I am sure she will further explain her experience with Mercy. Hope I was able to help!!

Michelle,

 

Sorry one more question. I noticed you had blue napkins did you bring those with you? If so where did you buy them? I want to add a little color to the table and I thought that was an easy thing to do.

 

Thanks,

 

Debbie

Hey Boston,

 

No problem. Do you know I just realized I had blue napkins because you told me I did, haha!! I looked at one of my pictures and noticed them! So needless to say I did not bring them lol. It looks really nice and not overdone. The chair bows I brought and they used them not only on chairs but for the torches and the centerpieces. If you are using that color in your color scheme, they should still have my chair bows, ask Mercy about that. Any other questions, feel free to ask =)

    • 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.
