Hello everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself as I have been reading this forum non stop for last few weeks! Have got so much information and tips from you ladies it's been such a big help and really reassuring! We are getting married on 6th June 2013 at the garden gazebo, followed by cocktail hour on the pier and dinner on the beach ! Just wanted to asks if anybody knew, we are taking our own sound system with us, is there an electrical hook up on the beach or will this have to be a 'battery operated ' system? Love hearing the wedding reviews and pictures , can't wait to show you mine! Dani x

Hello!

First of all, congratulations to all the brides!

I'm new in the forum and have been reading non-stop for a while, lots of useful information and great ideas, brides here are so creative I'm just amazed! I'm also getting married at Dreams La Romana on April 20, 2013. The ceremony will be at the Gazebo (cocktail probably in the same garden), and the reception at the Seaside Grill. I love the wedding reviews, they are so helpful, and the planning threads are also great, I'm very happy that I found this forum :)

Hey ladies!  I have a question that I'm hoping one of you can answer.  On the deposit form for DLA, what exactly are they asking for when they say "Concept"?  I've had zero luck in finding out, so hopefully one of ya'll can help!  Thanks!!

Hi MysticalRose,

I just checked my deposit form, but since mine is in Spanish it doesn't say "concept or concepto" -in Spanish- anywhere. However, sometimes they ask the "concept" for the payment in which it would be probably "wedding pack", "reservation of wedding" or something similar. Sorry that I cannot be of more help, I hope someone with English form will help you out with this!

Hi all,

 

I'm due to fly out to La Romana in 7 weeks for my wedding :)

Just had a few questions I wondered if anyone could give some advice

 

1. What are the location options for the reception I know there is seaside deck (which I believe you have to pay for) and like beach or pool. Is there anywhere else??

2. Do they do a buffet/BBQ option and if so does anyone know how much pp?

3. Has anyone used the resort for hair and makeup?

4. Do I need to send translated documents out with me prior to arrival or do I just take them with me?

 

I think this is all for know if anyone can help that would be great. Its getting so close and I feel like I have little information to what I should be doing. I'm getting nervous I will not do something!

 

Thanks in advance

Congratulations to all the new brides for 2013. I'm happy to see the future brides for 2013 at Dreams La Romana. This thread has been so helpful. However, I was wondering could any of you provide information on the room rates for the wedding groups? Do you find the packages/fees reasonable for? To all the newly married brides, do you find the wedding gazebo private and not centered in the middle of a busy area?

 

Any feedback would be highly appreciated....locking in a venue has become the only stressful factor in this whole process. yikes.

Hey ladies!!! Its been SO long since I've posted - so busy with the wedding planning!! 11.10.12 is getting here SO quickly!! We have 163 people booked so far, can't believe it!  We are using HDC & so happy we chose them from looking at everyones pictures!!

 

Gems2Wed2012 - Your wedding is in 7 weeks?  You should definitely contact the wedding coordinator to lock down a ceremony/reception location bc they do get booked up since the resort does more than one wedding a day, sometimes 3 or 4.  We are getting married at the garden gazebo - its not in the center of everything, its over back behind the preferred club area and there is nowhere for people to be walking behind the gazebo, so no one else will be in your pictures. People can see you if they're over there, but its a low traffic area of the resort.  Definitely contact Jenny asap though, I know that one can get booked quickly.  She should send you a package including all of the buffet options & pricing.

hi wedding date twin! i can't believe it's getting sooo close!!

have you had any luck in getting decor (flowers/linen etc) options from yanna or jenny? or did you just send over pics of what you wanted and they told you what they cost? I'm trying to figure out what they can actually do, but yanna just keeps telling me, what do i want. i have no idea! lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
