I added my date to the thread (November 12, 2011).  I spent the last few weeks reading through the entire thread and feel fairly prepared as to what to expect.  I still have a number of questions to resolve and will be traveling to Dreams over Memorial Day weekend to meet with Yanna or Tiara to get everything answered and confirmed.  This would me my 4th time staying at Dreams La Romana and for those of you who haven't been there before, it is a gorgeous location and one of the best all-inclusives I've ever been to so you won't be disappointed with your choice.

Hi Ladies-

 

I stumbled accross this site a few days ago and it was the best thing that happened. I am getting married at DLR on April 4th! To complicate it all, I suffered an injury and will be on crutches! We have 60+ people booked, so unfortunately the show must go on. I am so glad to hear your responses and wished I had found this months ago!

 

I am still waiting to hear back from Tiara on my list of items, but I was wondering if anyone could answer me on this:

 

- If you purchase the flowers from the resort, are the bridesmaid's bouquets really $75 each?? It seems like a simple detail, but I have 6 bridesmaids and it could add up!

 

Thanks again for all the info.

 

Carrie

Dana,

 

Thank you so much for letting us know that Tiara is back in business :D and that hopefully all your questions ladies will be answered much quicker now too :)))

I am so glad that everything is coming together so nicely for you as well, 3things done in one day - that's a result!!! :) Did you receive your real touch flowers yesterday? :)) If you have any pix post here, i am sure all girls here would be happy to see it and share your happiness :)))

OMG you have only 5 weeks left until you leave!!!! - you must be buzzing from excitement!!!...time goes very quickly! :) Very exited for you!!! We here in the Uk don't get much snow, but still wishing for an amazing beach and sun in La Romana - you will be there very soon Dana :D

 

Oh and Lisa if you will be reading this Congratulations on becoming MRS yesterday, hope you had a blast and tell us all about it when you are back!!! :)))x

Also Congratulations to JoNewham - she is getting married today!!! :Dx

Welcome Katie and Carrie!!! :D

And Congratulations on your upcoming weddings too!!! :)))

 

This thread is amazing and girls here are lovely - helped me alot when we have decided to go with Dreams La Romana, because we never stayed there! but it looks amazing and all girls here seemed to have a wonderful time there on their big days :D

 

Katie - if you will get any answers from Tiara or Yanna about anything wedding related, do you think you could post here when you will have a free minute - i am sure it might help some brides that have the same questions :D

 

Carrie - your wedding is soooo soon!!! wau girl, not long and you will become MRS!!! :D

 

Ladies, if you have anything to share or ask go ahead, it is most likely that another bride on here might just know the answer of solution ;D

 

Best wishes to you all from rainy England!!! :)

 

xoxo

Dana - I can't believe its only 5 weeks!  So excited for you!

 

Carrie - I think the cost of flowers really is that much - I have heard that most place REALLY overcharge for fresh flower arrangments for the DWs in the Caribbean.  A lot of girls decide to use real touch flowers and bring them down because it is so much cheaper.  You can always check with Tiara about modifying the arrangments to keep the costs lower?  I'm thinking of doing real touch flowers for the bouts and corsages so I can spend more of my flower budget on the fresh flower bouquets when I get down there.  Are you getting a wedding package or going with the free one and adding on?  I have the ultimate package and since this included 2 centerpieces, I am checking with Tiara about using fewer flowers in each centerpiece so I don't have to pay quite as much (5 simpler centerpieces instead of 2 larger centerpieces for the same price) - I am bringing a few things down to add to our centerpieces anyways.  Hopefully a bride who has already gotten married down there could let you know what their experience was when they were actually there too!

Kelsie, its such a great idea with real touch flowers post some pix's here when you will get yours!!! :)))

I wish I could have them done too...I have checked in the UK and if they are good quality they are almost as expensive as real ones and I like the quality of them in the US better anyway...but if you order something larger from US you have to pay a lot tax on the top of it here in the UK...so decided to stick with the real flowers in Dreams!

Looking through the list of extras you can have in DLR, I have noticed corsage for $25...if they will be the ones that can go on your wrist (like you get on your prom night lol:)) they might look quite cute on bridesmaids - maybe it could be a good option for you Carrie??!! as paying $75 for 6 bridesmaids is a bit too much...:/

 

I have not decided on centerpieces yet...although i was thinking about it lol :))) My wonderful FI wanted a specific gazebo decoration (i will try post a picture below) and I was thinking to ask Yanna, maybe it will be possible then to take some of it off (while we will have our pictures taken and cocktail hour) and have it as centerpieces???...i don't know how possible its is to be honest...just trying to find some ways to save money on such a things :D what do you think ladies??? :)))

 

xoxo
