    Latinblonde,

     

    Congrats and thank you for trying to ease our nervousness :) I can't wait to see more pics and hear what you have to say about the whole experience.

     

    :)

      I got this email today from Jenny.  From what I understand we can choose which one we want but I guess they work directly with tropical pictures and would rather you choose them.  But either way HDC is good to use! yay!!

       

       

      Dear Noami:

      Im sorry for the delay. Now we have the authorizations and you can arrange the photographer of your choose for your special day.(tropical pictures, HDC). That was a misunderstanding, but now every things are fine.

            OMG I cant believe this about the photographers!! After all the drama and me racing around trying to organise with Arnaud... grrrr.... well I guess on the whole it is a good thing but all the worry it caused Dana and for no reason??!!! CRAZY! I agree that they must have got a ton of complaints and back tracked....

            Anyhoo on to happier things - Latinblonde you looked stunning  cant wait to read the review. Dana, glad you got the SSG menu - is it nice? We loved the food at lunch time at SSG and dinner was great too although we only had dinner there once.  I'm so jealous you only have two weeks t wait! Dying to hear how you get on!

              According to an email that was sent to another bride somewhere on this board under Dreams Punta Cana brides, they've also removed the daily pass fee for an outside photographer! I'm so glad they reversed that crazy rule!

                Welcome Tink!!! :Dx Thank you so much for posting this, while reading what Dreams put on their facebook it gave me an impression that this could be the case (meaning they have removed day pass for photographers), that such a great news! :))) Btw are you getting married in Dreams La Romana too??!! :D Tell us all about it and how far along are you with your planning?? :)))

                  hey ladies,

                   

                  still havent got round to writing my review...been crazy busy since returning from honeymoon - back into the daily routine already!!!! anyway, had a quick flick through the last few pages, and if any of you are friends with HDC on facebook you will see that they have confirmed they are still permitted into Dreams hotels...great news for all you future brides as they were FANTASTIC!!!!! and in another league to the hotel photographers. there was another wedding straight after ours, and they only had the hotel photographer, and they didnt realise that tropical pictures only take their photos during the actual ceremony, so they were expecting a photo shoot afterwards and were just left standing there when the photographer disappeared as soon as the confetti had been thrown.

                   

                  theres just a few things i thought i'd share with you all as i've got 2 minutes:

                   

                  i didnt book my hair/make up trial before arriving - Yanna just sorted this out when we arrived (arrived wednesday evening, met with Yanna thursday morning for an hour and we sorted EVERYTHING!) however.......went for my trial, took pictures with me after reading previous reviews - it was a disaster!!!!!!! i had Maria and she didnt really seem to know anything about make up application and i got the feeling that unless you want a beehive look with millions of tight, hairsprayed curls then they find it a bit difficult - my hair didnt look like my photos in the slightest. not surprisingly i decided to do my hair and make up myself, and asked Yanna if i could swap hair and make up for manicure and pedicure, this was no problem and worked out really well as i was going to get my nails done either way (but didnt have to pay for them :))

                   

                  i cant emphasise enough how brilliant HDC were, we had Francisco for about 3 and a half hours, we ran over slightly because the hotel videographer wanted certain shots etc etc but HDC were so patient, didnt rush anything and Francisco would just say 'dont worry we will take as long as we need!!' so great!!!!!!! the hotel photographer was also there, but to be honest we didnt pay much attention to him as i wanted to make sure the pictures from HDC came out well. the hotel photographs were 'nice' but nothing spectacular, and when we went and had them printed out they do try and get you to buy them all on a disc or get more printed etc etc, we just took the 50 that were included in the package - he wanted $300 for the disc!?!?!?!?!?! anyway, the prints were ok, cheap photo paper and they werent presented in an album but they just gave them us in an envelope and a hideous looking album (real tourist rubbish!!) seperately - which we actually left there!!!

                   

                  sorry ladies thats all i have time for right now, off to work but i will include a few links below to the albums i have put on my facebook page (some of the HDC ones are on there, the quality isnt great as i could be bothered to wait for the higher quality to upload, but rest assured the pictures we have are amazing quality!!!!!!!!!!!!) - oh also, if i remember rightly with HDC's package (i think it was the silver one) they say you get approx 300 pics on a DVD, but we actually got about 390!! YAY!!

                   

                  as i'm short on time and not getting chance to check in much at all, if you have any questions about anything then feel free to e-mail me at ellerby_lisa@hotmail.com and i'll get back to you asap!!!!

                   

                  Dreams La Romana is amazing and when you get there you will realise just how simple it is there to sort things out, we didnt do much planning beforehand at all re: flowers, cake, table set up etc etc etc and just sorted it all with Yanna on the thursday meeting - it was so simple and she just showed us loads of pics and we chose from there.

                   

                  anyway....heres the links to my piccies (i will give you the one to my 'general' holiday pics so you can see the resort and my reception set up too)
