    Hello,   Just sharing for those who may be interested in Tiffany chairs, I found a great vendor who was able to provide the chairs at $5 each, you can contact Alex Rijo at 809-556-5959 or  via email at eventos@verizon.net.do   I am also using Cesar Bido as my photographer, you can take a look at his website at cesarbido.com his work is amazing and his prices are very reasonable.   We're getting married July 23 if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.  Good luck and happy planning everyone!

        Good day ladies!


        Im planning a DW at Dreams La Romana for may 2012 and this thread has been very helpful. I have not booked the date, but planning on it  soon. I have 1 question for the ladies that have been there. Is the only way to get to the hotel by a 1 1/2 ride shuttle? Or is it that there are limited amount of flighs that travel directly into the Romana intl airport? just a litte concerned for my guest.


        Thanks :)

          Brendee - Right now the flights into La Romana are more limited but in November of this year Jet Blue is going to start flying directly into La Romana, so that will increase the number of direct flights.  Where are you located? I know in the NY/NJ area they are going to be direct flights from JFK to La Romana.

              I'm finally at the less then a year mark.   Our wedding date is July 5th 2012.  Yesterday my bro had his first child on July 5th 2011.  So now our wedding day will be his kids 1st birthday. We debated on changing the date, but we already paid for the save the dates.  So I guess we will never forget our nephews birthday :)  Hope all planning is going well.  Thanks to those who have posted the recent reviews!!

                Brendee - Also, Jet Blue has group discounts if you can get a good amount of people on one flight, you can go to their website and email them about it and they'll give you all the details.  Jet Blue has been by far the cheapest and has the most direct flights into Punta Cana and Santo Domingo that I've seen so hopefully when they fly to La Romana it will be the same way! (and FYI they're not on any of the discount sites like Expedia, etc., - just something to know, bc I didn't find this out until about 2 weeks ago & like I said their flights are much better price-wise and direct-wise than I've found on any of the other sites!)


                Has anyone done buffets for their wedding dinner? Just wondering how they were and if you added any extras (or what extras there are to add).  From the price sheet I got it says 1 app, 1 salad, 1 entree, and 1 dessert which is really not at all what I want to do  - we definitely need more options than that. 


                Also, when you did your site inspections did you do a tasting of the food?


                We go next Thursday and just wondering if thats an option.


                Thanks ladies!!

                    Hey ladies!


                    For those of you who are well into planning/have already gotten married - what is the actual charge for a reception per person after the ones included in your package? I feel like I always get a different answer.


                    I told them I wanted a 1 hr cocktail and a 4 hr reception & they told me at first that its $10/pp for cocktail hour open bar, $10/pp for cocktail hour food, then $25/pp for reception food and $10/pp for reception open bar.  (of course without add-ons, just for the gold dinner menu).  Is the open bar per hour or just per event? I'm just trying to create a budget and without the correct info I cant!!


                    Did anyone else have a 4 hr reception? Was it extra?


                    Thank you!!
