        Thank you.  I actually bought my own linens because I had a specific color and idea in my own head. LOL  The cake came from an outside bakery which Jenny found.  I wanted an authentic dominican cake so she was able to find a baker who could make me the cake in the three tiers that I wanted.  FYI the two tops tiers were fake and only the bottom layer was actual cake. Dreams actually had a picture of a cake similar to mines that they made in the past.  So ladies if you want anything in specific ask them because they will try to get if for you or see if they have it.  For example to the decor for the chinese lanterns that were used in the ceremony were free.  Granted they only had a few but they didn't charge me extra for that.  I only had to pay for the tule and if I wanted flowers all over the Gazebo (didn't do that because for some reason the way the flowers are arrange they remind me of funeral flowers LOL)

            Sorry Jen, me again with more questions! your linens are gorgeous - are they a pale gold or cream colour? Also, I love the cake and the idea of two fake tiers is fantastic - do you mind me asking how much the cake cost from the outside vendor?

              Chanelo,

               

              Thanks the suits where from studiosiuits.com i think.  they are the suits for a custom made $99 linen suit. There is a whole thread about them.  The quality was great and everyone loved the suits. 

               

              The linens are an antique gold overlay and sashes and the napkins are a periwinkle blue.  all the linens where purchased for close to nothing at weddinglinensdirect.com.  I highly recommend using them if you have a specific color and you don't want to use the linen colors from the resort. 

               

              The cake cost me about 350 + delivery and flowers.  Also note that the bottom layer is 6 lbs worth of cake which feeds about 80 ppl or more.  So the price is for a large cake.  You can get a smaller cake that isn't so expensive.

                Hi Jen! I was hoping you'd say they were from studio suits - I have been in touch with them and bought the swatches from them so I'm delighted to see them look so great on your guys! Do you recall what colour you chose in the end?

                  yes the suits were great.  Everyone that asked us were we got the suits were shocked when we told them that they were custom and $99.  They quality is really great.  Beige Linen is the color we chose.

                    Hey ladies! Recently got engaged & am looking to have our wedding at Dreams La Romana! So excited!

                     

                    I was just wondering if anyone knows if you can bring your own band to play at the reception?

                     

                    Also, I was looking at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Punta Cana - does anyone know why La Romana's room rates are so much cheaper?  I think their rates are amazing, I just want to make sure there isnt some specific reason that theyre lower.  I know Punta Cana is a more popular destination.

                     

                    Excited to be part of this thread, ladies! I've read alot already and am getting some great ideas from you all!

                     

                    =)

                      Congrats and you won't be disappointed. 

                       

                      The reason La Romana has cheaper rates is becuase of the location.  Punta Cana is a much more Tourist area with tons of Resorts in the area.  However La Romana or Bayahibe is a new resort area and just a few resorts in the area.
