    Have any of you chosen a dress yet? I found mine yesterday but Im not too sure to order in ivory or white white. I love the idea of white white but i don't want it to look so white that it glows, and the ivory is nice because sometimes (I think anyway) it seems like it looks more expensive. Past and Future brides...any thoughts?

      Hi Taylorbabe,

      I bought my dress a few months ago and I decided to go with Ivory; I found that the white looks so bleached. The Ivory I got actually still looks like white but has a more natural look to it.
      Here is a pic so you can get an idea of what Im talking about.

      Which dress did you go with? (designer/style number)?
      Mine is Allure Exclusive, style # 2252 :)

        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!
        I wanted to get a Catholic priest as well, but as dolfinluck mentioned, catholic priests do not perform religious ceremonies outside the church. So Im just going to have my religious ceremony next year in Canada (just family attending) :)

            Very Nice ... you look beautiful.

            I am a plus size, so I found my dress at David's Bridal in Vermont. Going to buy its actually on August 7th, but wanted my mom to see it first. I'm going with white(as most of it is a chiffon), but I agree about the Ivory with certain materials. Honestly, the Ivory is white... only we truly know the difference.

              I got diamond white as white was just a bit too bright for my skin tone. it really depends on what looks best for your skin tone plus the fabric as white in silk is really more ivory. best of luck in choosing!!! some times i wish i could go wedding dress shopping again but my sister was getting annoyed after the 9 store we when to

                Oh my goodness pink pettals your man is gonna die when he sees you! Stunn-ing is all I can say.

                I don't think mine is online (well Im sure it is somewhere) but the ladies in the store said it was Alfred Sung Private Collection (or something like that) model 110. Same style as yours but the bottom has a couple small pick ups with tulle sticking out the bottom. I'm worried about standing in the white gazebo and looking dirty, or next to the table linens or something, maybe I'm just thinking too much.

                And now...What about shoes?...for some reason I remember reading that the SSG Deck is like a wooden deck and stillettos or similar heels are not a good idea, do you remember anything about this? What about walking down the isle to the gazebo?I dont want to trip on gravel or get my heel stuck or something embarrassing.

                  I'll also show them this website and hopefully they'll realize they made a mistake.

                  I leave in 2 days! Yikes!

                  Ladies who've already been down, did you just give Tiara all your decorations and she put them up?
                  Can't wait to get your feedback on the wedding!!

                    Thanks for the update Pink_petals! I was able to speak to the local church in Altos de Chavron..they were really nice (well once grabbed the phone off my fiance's hand and started trying out my rusty spanish with them) they said they will look into the date and to call back once its closer to April but it may be possible...im getting married on the Tuesday of easter week but I dindt mention anything to them yet...i'll give them a call once its closer to the date...it doesnt hurt to try :)...if not we'll do something simple with my family only here in Canada when we get back....

                      Helllloo ladies!
                      How are you?!
                      My new hubby and I got back yesterday after a fabulous 2 week stay at Dreams. I will post our review as soon as I can...still trying to catch up and unpack. All I can say is WOW. Everything was just amazing. Our whole crew had an amazing time and our week alone was great, too. We had both the ceremony and reception on the beach and they were both breathtaking. It really turned out better than we could have ever imagined it. Tiara was great and everything fell into place. I was a more relaxed bride- and just trusted her and everything was amazing. Everything from my hair and makeup to the photographer to the DJ to the pastor to the dinner to the set up. You girls really have nothing to worry about. We were so lucky because we had plenty of sunshine on our day and again, it was just amazing. And we are finally Husband and Wife!!!!!!!!
