Have any of you chosen a dress yet? I found mine yesterday but Im not too sure to order in ivory or white white. I love the idea of white white but i don't want it to look so white that it glows, and the ivory is nice because sometimes (I think anyway) it seems like it looks more expensive. Past and Future brides...any thoughts?

Hi Taylorbabe,

I bought my dress a few months ago and I decided to go with Ivory; I found that the white looks so bleached. The Ivory I got actually still looks like white but has a more natural look to it.
Here is a pic so you can get an idea of what Im talking about.

Which dress did you go with? (designer/style number)?
Mine is Allure Exclusive, style # 2252 :)

I am wondering if anyone has been able to get a local catholic priest to come celebrate their wedding at Dreams La Romana...we could go to the church of Altos de Chavron but I would rather keep everyone at the resort...let me know if you have any info!
I wanted to get a Catholic priest as well, but as dolfinluck mentioned, catholic priests do not perform religious ceremonies outside the church. So Im just going to have my religious ceremony next year in Canada (just family attending) :)

Very Nice ... you look beautiful.

I am a plus size, so I found my dress at David's Bridal in Vermont. Going to buy its actually on August 7th, but wanted my mom to see it first. I'm going with white(as most of it is a chiffon), but I agree about the Ivory with certain materials. Honestly, the Ivory is white... only we truly know the difference.

I got diamond white as white was just a bit too bright for my skin tone. it really depends on what looks best for your skin tone plus the fabric as white in silk is really more ivory. best of luck in choosing!!! some times i wish i could go wedding dress shopping again but my sister was getting annoyed after the 9 store we when to

Oh my goodness pink pettals your man is gonna die when he sees you! Stunn-ing is all I can say.

 

I don't think mine is online (well Im sure it is somewhere) but the ladies in the store said it was Alfred Sung Private Collection (or something like that) model 110. Same style as yours but the bottom has a couple small pick ups with tulle sticking out the bottom. I'm worried about standing in the white gazebo and looking dirty, or next to the table linens or something, maybe I'm just thinking too much.

 

And now...What about shoes?...for some reason I remember reading that the SSG Deck is like a wooden deck and stillettos or similar heels are not a good idea, do you remember anything about this? What about walking down the isle to the gazebo?I dont want to trip on gravel or get my heel stuck or something embarrassing.

I leave in 2 days! Yikes!

Ladies who've already been down, did you just give Tiara all your decorations and she put them up?
Can't wait to get your feedback on the wedding!!

Thanks for the update Pink_petals! I was able to speak to the local church in Altos de Chavron..they were really nice (well once grabbed the phone off my fiance's hand and started trying out my rusty spanish with them) they said they will look into the date and to call back once its closer to April but it may be possible...im getting married on the Tuesday of easter week but I dindt mention anything to them yet...i'll give them a call once its closer to the date...it doesnt hurt to try :)...if not we'll do something simple with my family only here in Canada when we get back....

Helllloo ladies!

How are you?!

My new hubby and I got back yesterday after a fabulous 2 week stay at Dreams. I will post our review as soon as I can...still trying to catch up and unpack. All I can say is WOW. Everything was just amazing. Our whole crew had an amazing time and our week alone was great, too. We had both the ceremony and reception on the beach and they were both breathtaking. It really turned out better than we could have ever imagined it. Tiara was great and everything fell into place. I was a more relaxed bride- and just trusted her and everything was amazing. Everything from my hair and makeup to the photographer to the DJ to the pastor to the dinner to the set up. You girls really have nothing to worry about. We were so lucky because we had plenty of sunshine on our day and again, it was just amazing. And we are finally Husband and Wife!!!!!!!!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
