Congrats Dana!  That is so exciting and can't wait to hear how everything went.  I hope you had the BEST time!

 

KrystalKelley - I would probably get the biggest tulle to be safe but I'm not really much help because we are doing paper lanterns!  As for makeup - I ended up going to MAC and doing a few lessons so that I can do my own makeup and I'm going to take a chance with the hair and bring stuff if I need to fix it a little (I doubt I will hate it so much that I will need to totally redo it so a few adjustments to their style should be okay).

hello ladies,

 

I am new to this site so I have to apologize if I am repeating something.  I just returned home from DLR to plan our wedding.  We are getting married August 27, 2011 at Altos de Chavon and having the reception at DLR following the ceremony.  I was searching photographers in the DR and came to this forum.  I see from your posts that unless already booked we have to use the resort photographers!!  Am I understanding this correctly?  I didn't get a warm and cozy from the photographers while I was there and wanted to branch out, I guess now I don't have a choice!!!

Bella,

 

For a short time and I mean short time they were going to set new policy you would have had to use the inhouse photographer.  However since so many of us complained on all locations.  They have changed the policy to allow outside photographers for the day of your wedding. 

Hope that helps.

I decided on an outside photographer for a couple reasons:

1.  The hotel photog charges a TON for extra photos beyond what is included in your package (if you get a package) as well as charging a huge amount of money for the DVD of all the photos

2.  The hotel photog also only includes ceremony pictures in the packages so if you want any picture of your groups/bride & groom from the little photo shoot following the ceremony those are all extra money ($15 per photo is what I was quoted) - this information is directly from Tropical Pictures not from the Dreams Wedding Coordinator.

 

I am going with HDC which gives me more flexibility and more pictures for way less money!

Hola Gilrs! We just returned from our AMAZING wedding! Everything is great...we were even able to bring a local catholic priest to perform the ceremony at the garden gazebo!!...with a little more effort everything is possible (being able to speak Spanish helps though hehe). I will post pictures and a detailed review as soon as we get some time.

Yanna is ABSOLUTELY awesome!! You don't have anything to worry about as she knows exactly what she is doing..she even surprised us with little details we never even thought of to ensure our wedding was more than perfect! Everything from the setting up the decorations exactly as we wanted (we put a table together at home with all the decor and favors and took a picture of what we had in mind..she setup everything exactly like the picture we showed her). I don't think anyone here at home would be able to do such an awesome job!

The resort is also great! All the guests had an awesome time (even the ones who went waaaay overboard with the sun and drinks had a great time), the staff is extremely dedicated to perfection and the food quality was great!

Just remember to enjoy yourself and don't stress about little details beforehand as everything will be taken care of by them.

Dreams La Romana definitely knows what they are doing!

HDC and Tropical Pictures were much better than we expected! Both extremely professional and we ended up with stunning pictures.

 

and THANK YOU all the ladies that post their experiences and suggestions here at bestdesinationwedding for helping me out with ideas, suggestions and tips! I could not have prepared anything for our wedding if it wasn't for all of you!!!

We just got back from our magical wedding! It was more than perfect! Yanna is absolutely awesome! I don't think anyone here at home would be able to do such an amazing job with just one meeting the day before the wedding!! So ladies, take it easy on her!! She is a busy woman and knows exactly how to make your day stress free...no need to hire a wedding coordinator off site...all they do is put in contact with Yanna...which you can it do yourself for free!

Both HDC and Tropical Pictures were amazing photographers!! We were surprised with absolutely amazing wedding pictures from both!! Make sure you negotiate your photo packages before hand not to be surprised by the price of extra pictures...even then try to negotiate the price as Tropical actually offered us a pretty sweet deal and tons of options if we wanted more pics than it was included in our package ;) The service and food at Dreams la Romana were impeccable!

PS: I tried to post a mini review but this site is 'holding' my post because I have not posted enough before (which totally sucks btw!! all I wanted was to share more details)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
