      Questions for those who are already married....

       

      1. I went to Sams yesterday to look at the Bose i-pod docking system and I turned it up as loud as it would go and I have some concerns about the sound carrying through the reception area at the Sunset Grill.  Have any of you ladies used this option? Was it loud enough? What did you do?

       

      2. Was the cake good? I've seen the pictures of the cake they provide and they don't look very pretty, but how do they taste?

        congratulations, where are your wedding pictures> How was the heat and the mosquitos? I heard the heat is unbearable this time of year? I am trying to decide between jamaica grand palladium and dreams la romana in the dominican. I really like everything about this resort I am just worried about the heat and mosquitos

          quick question as we are both having the ultimate package - do you have any info on the photographers available?? I e-mailed Yanna about them, asking how many photographers we could choose from and if she could send some samples of their work and when we could make arrangements with them...the reply I got was: "they are a few photographers, but they do very good job" - i thought it might be a safer bet to ask for advice on here!!

           

          Thank You!!!

           

          p.s your last post was great...reminded me of the important things to remember...I am much less stressed now


          I believe they are call "photo souvenir", they have booth at the resort.  They are the ppl that take your picture during the day with all the different animals.  The have a couple of photographer, but i'm not sure you could request one over another.  I think a couple of brides have used them and said they were pretty good.  When they took my picture with a couple of different animals they were pretty good at posing me and giving me direction.  Pics were the most important thing to me so to be safe i flew someone down and dont have a single regret about spending a bit more money for them.

           

           

          Also Uninspired, great post!!! its so easy to loose sight of what really is important

                Dolfinluck,

                Yanna gave me a direct e-mail to the photographer that is provided in the Ultimate Package. If you want to check out their work, http://www.tropicalpictures.com.do

                My cousin was at the resort with his family this past winter and he came back with some beautiful pictures which these photogs took of his daughters, so I'm confident that they are really experienced. They have some beautiful photos on their website also.

                Somewhere I have their price list too, if you want it e-mail me at allakarasik@hotmail.com

                  Congratulations Gaby! It is good to see the reminder to calm down and let the WCs do their job. Great advice! They do this every day, so I'm sure my wedding will be no problem for them.

                   

                  Thanks for putting up the review. I'm glad everything worked out well. We've been trying to decide if we want to stay at the resort after our wedding for our last 4 days, or go somewhere else, and your review is tipping the scales in favor of staying at Dreams.

                    Hi GEM,

                     

                    Congratulations. Thank you for posting your review. I think I have finally resolved to looking forward to the wedding, instead of stressing out over it. So glad that you had a wonderful experience, makes me feel so much better about everything.

                      Hi, girls! Thanks for all the sweet comments! And today we just got our wedding book from HDC and its beautiful!

                       

                      dcarnis, lol :) I added you on fb:)

                       

                      Thanks, NancM. My bouquet, my hubby's boutinere, the Best Man's boutinere, and I think my grandpa is wearing one and my mom in law- they were all real and included in our package with the resort. The girls' bouquets as well as the other groomsmen's boutinere's were fake. I bought them in a flower warehouse in jersey. After the ceremony, we actually used the BM's bouquets as the centerpieces. We got some fancy glasses from the bar, put some blue stones that I brought in them, and stuck the flowers right in them and they worked out nicely:)

                       

                      Mrs. Williams and irisheyes, I added you:)

                       

                      In my opinion, and my hubby's and our guests that tried the cake, it was delicious!!! We weren't too picky how it looked as long as our cake topper was on top. They actually serve the same cake in the buffet as dessert and whenever we could, we would go and get some during the week because it was so yummy!
