    If you are okay with ordering off of the menu then there is no extra charge. Also, your guests would all have to eat the same meal, which you would choose in advance (with the exception of vegetarians who they will prepare something special for).

    Hope this helps.

    Yikes! Looks like we posted at the same time!! Good to see you got your answer!
    we have to pick the same meal?? my fi understood we can order off the menu anything we want as long it is on their menu....hmmmmm... something to look into

      Congrats to the all ladies who will be getting married at DRL!
      I am wondering if anyone has been able to get a local catholic priest to come celebrate their wedding at Dreams La Romana...we could go to the church of Altos de Chavron but I would rather keep everyone at the resort...let me know if you have any info!

        Thank you very much Dana and Nadia. My FI and I did not want to pay more for food when its included in the price of the hotel. Dana, did you get an answer as to whether there is an extra charge for people over 60 person count?

          Tomorrow my FI is calling Tiara to confirm again. I asked him and he said he did ask the question. But this time he's going to confirm some stuff and get her to email it to us. I mean, honestly, we are paying them an extra 1000 to do what they would already be doing anyway, but for less work as it is a smaller group (we are about 40) I will keep you posted:)

            Did anyone get Real touch flowers for their throw away bouquet? Any suggestions for a vendor with a great price?

              I used fake flowers and the photographer didnt even know they were fake till I told her a couple of hours later. I think when ppl hear fake flowers they think of dollar store type. As long as they look really who cares if they are fake, the plus is you can have them as a keepsake or even re-sell them to other bride. If your MIL and Mom are willing to pay the difference for real flowers then go with it otherwise I would go with what you want.

              When I asked Tiara about this she said no as catholic priest will not perform a ceremony outside of a church in the DR.

              I used real touch flowers for everything (except for the flower petals) and I used angels accent (i believe pink petals used her too) and loved them!!! i believe she is a bit more than other vendors but her work it beautiful and she uses higher end flowers. I still saved a bundle over what I would of spent at DLR. search the forum and you can find other vendors
