Hello Jessicalynneh,

 

We are wedding day sisters! I am sure our paths will cross in the hotel. I'll email you my email so we can keep in constant communication. My FI and I will be eloping in Miami Beach on 09/10/11 and then we plan on having a big wedding celebration in Dreams La Romana on 11/10/12. We will have around 65 people.

 

I was wondering who is your TA. I need help because the person I've been talking with says she canot give me quotes for the airflight since it is in November 2012. Are you flying your guest right into La Romana airport?

 

At what time is your ceremony and at what location?

Your save the dates sound adorable - we sent our a few weeks ago (magnets, I figured people would have less of a chance of losing them if they were on the fridge!) & have 27 people booked!! I love watching everyone book...my TA sends me an email everytime someone makes their reservation, and its like opening a present every time lol.  Its so exciting having another bride for that day!

Dominican Bride,

 

My email is jessicalynneh@gmail.com

 

We definitely should keep in contact, and grab a drink (or 2!) while we're at the resort to celebrate! I'm excited!!!

 

CONGRATS thats so excited that you're eloping so soon!!!!

 

My travel agent is amazing, email me and I'll email you her info.  Shes a lifesaver.  She actually probably can't give you airfare quotes yet (my TA said probably around December or January because thats about when airlines come out with flights for November 2012.)  I would like to fly our guests right into La Romana, it depends on how much more expensive they are as to what everyone will want to do - some will probably fly into La Romana, and others into Punta cana or Santo Domingo.  My FI and i just visited DLR in July (LOVED IT!!!!) and we flew into santo domingo because we were only going for 3 nights to see the resort so we didnt feel like paying extra for the flights this trip - the ride really wasnt bad at all (as long as you dont mind crazy drivers lol - theyre all a little nuts on the island!) - we had a private van & he stopped and got us beer along the way, and was really friendly and great.  Our flights in Juy were just about $500/pp.  We're definitely going to fly into La Romana next time, as long as JetBlue has direct flights into there on that day.  Where are you from? I'm in NJ and I know JetBlue starts flying directly into La Romana from JFK this November, which is great.

 

We're doing a 5pm ceremony in the garden gazebo, then cocktail hour in the garden area, and we're actually doing our reception in the ballroom (2 of the connecting ones have a wall in the middle that slides over and opens it up alot.)  One of the ballrooms we have has a stage, and we're (hopefully!!) bringing a band down to play the reception so I thought it would be more fun inside so we can hear the band & dance & be crazy without being ridiculously loud for the rest of the resort!  Everything else during the week will be outside so I figured an inside reception would be good for us lol.

 

What about you??

Hi Jessica,

 

My date is 11-12-11 and no my dress is being made.  So, I have not seen it or tried it on.  Yet I am confident in the person who is making it, so I know I'll love it.  Just really anxious to have my first fitting.

And your pics look wonderful.  The green shoes are perfect! I am a colored bride - many shoes and dress are colored and not the traditional ivory/white.  I applaud and hoot for anyone who is daring enough.  Can't wait to read your review.

Thank you all for such detailed and helpful information on this blog! Collectively you are the best wedding planners one can ask for! I've just joined and had a great time reading all of the post, we have stayed at DLR before and loved it! We will be tying the knot on Friday May 4th at the Garden Gazeboo.

 

The ceremony location...still don't know! thinking about that.

 

Has anyone used a wedding coordinator for the day of? that is outside the hotel?

Has anyone used decor services from an external vendor?

 

Tk U!  Cynthia
