Thats great! I am going to get married on the beach---haven't decided on the reception yet, might go inside for that. Ironically my wedding day is also my birthday! I am sure we will definitely bump into each other, did you just recently book the date? How many people are coming to your wedding?

I was just at a wedding 3 weeks ago at dreams tulum and it was so much fun and so perfect! My friend was married on the beach behind the seaside grill and then they had their reception at the seaside grill. I highly recommend having it in there b/c you get shelter from all the wind and they set it up so nicely. I saw a bunch of recptions by the pool and on the beach, which were beautiful as well.

1. Purchased a dress but now thinking about getting a different one

2. Getting an estimate on the alterations cost

3. Booked a photographer

4. Sent out "Save the Date" email

5. Collecting guests' mailing address

6. Picked out a design for the wedding invitations

7. Purchased the materials for making the wedding invitations

8. Started working on the wedding web site

There is a ton of information on this forum and there is probably a thread for 75% - 90% for the things that come to your mind.

Bought rehearsal dress
Sent out STD's
Made a wedding website
Had most of our guests put down a deposit
Picked out bridesmaid dresses-will be buying shortly

Ordering samples to get an idea is the way to go. In fact, I was disappointed with the sample and ended up making my own. So glad I did it and saved some money.

    • 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
