Hola BDW ladies!!! 

 

ôm enjoying my final days in the D.R. and can barely believe that It´s almost been a whole month since I´ve been here!!

 

Anyway, just wanted to drop a quick note in response to Pastor Rick´s abscence.  He is currently out of town meeting up with his daughter (who is also a missionary but in Africa!)  He was originally scheduled to do my wedding but then received word that there would be an opportunity to meet up with his daughter whom both him and his wife have not seen in quite some time.  So, with my permission, he arranged to have his associate pastor (Ryan Vandelinde) do my wedding-- which was fine, and he did a great job too!  

 

I think Pastor Rick is due back at the end of the month - so basically any day now.

 

I´ll post my review when I get back home but to give you a slight preview....

 

DLR was FANTASTIC, Yanna was lovely, the wedding was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and there was very little that I would have done differently!!

Could you tell me if you book Pastor Rick to do your ceremony, do you still have to pay the resort the $300 for the legal ceremony??

And if you don't mind me asking how much does he cost?

Hi katierenae,

 

His charge is 300, but you pay him not the resort. Also, Tiara told me I did not have to pay for a day pass for him (as I am for HDC).  We are having a legal ceremony here at home first ( a friend is performing it). And our religious ceremony is down at la romana. I like how he approaches it. My FI is an athiest and I am not. So he was able to work with me on making a sweet cermony that will cover everything.

Hi Bee,

 

Congratulations...and thank you so much for sharing your stunning photos with us.  You and your husband looked like you walked off the pages of a magazine.  Simply breathtaking...

 

I too look forward to reading your review, if and when you get a few minutes to write one. 

 

Quick questions about your nails and your cake:

 

1 - I know you talked about getting your nails done before leaving; were they the gel tips, and if so, how did they last?  We are leaving on a Thursday morning and the ceremony is not until the Tuesday, so it would be almost a week after having them done, so I'm not sure if it would work out.

 

2 - The flowers on your cake were beautiful...were they ones you brought down with you, and if so, where did you find them?

 

Again, everything looked beautiful, and it seems as though people were having a great time!  Congrats!

 

Nadia,

 

Wow, you were really there for 1 month???  That is amazing!  Thanks for giving us some good news about the resort, Yanna, the ceremony.  I'm so glad everything went well for you and your husband.  Congratulations to you both and welcome home!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
