          Hiya , I am a newbie, I am looking to get married at dreams la romana next year , the resort looks amazing and the reviews mainly seem pretty good. I have just been trawling through the minefield of information of costs etc, everything seems to contradict itself. I am working with a tight budget which will be stretched enough as I am paying for our family of 5 to go, the wedding and the party back home (uk) so I really would like to know pretty much everything I have to pay for first rather than have costly surprises to pay for when out there ! I feel much better now having found you all so we can share any info xx

            Hi Andreanna


            Were you in a ball gown style dress? I saw one bride while we were doing our rehearsal on the 28th and she was around the white gasebo then another bride between the 30-2nd (I think the BM dresses were teal or aqua on the second one?)


            Too bad we didn't get to bump into each other at Dreams!

            Jassmaine, I know it isn't ideal, but when you are there in person, things will smooth out.


            We were married October 27, the first real sunny day since Hurricane Sally. It was amazing, and beyond anything I could have hoped for. I will do a full review soon!


            Vancouver bride: I saw them setting up your ceremony and then later saw you doing some photos. You looked gorgeous! Hope you got to enjoy mostly sunny weather!

              Hello DLR Brides!!


              We are back from our wedding on 29 October and settled down after the Holidays. Here are a few photos to help you with your descisions on locations for the dinners, ceremony, and reception. Overall I was impressed and happy with Dreams La Romana :)


              Pictures by Daniela Ciuffa

              I'd like to give a shout out to our amazing photographer Daniela Ciuffa from Vancouver who not only took amazing pics, but also gave us digital copyright so I can share them with you!  Check her out at Daniela Ciuffa http://www.ciuffaphotography.com/


              A note on decorations

              We had to cut our decorations budget last minute becaus DLR charged us a $300 venue fee (in addition to the food fee) for the welcome/Rehearsal dinner that was supposed to be free and a few other costs (loooong story). So the ceremony and reception decorations are quite minimal. We got some unexpected freebies (extra hour of reception, flower petals, bigger cake) so the costs evened out. 


              TTD coming soon...

              We paid a cab and did our TTD at Alto de Chavon about 10 km away----totally worth it!!! I'll post the pics and info in the TTD thread later. I'll also post in the "what I would and woulnd do again" thread when I have time. 


              Don't stress

              Most of the details like flowers and decorations and such weren't finalized until a week or 3 days before the wedding--apparently this is normal. It all worked out and I only wished I hadn't stressed so much! They are pros and know what they are doing. 


              Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Congratulations to the other DLR newlyweds and good luck planning to those yet to come!

              Welcome Dinner/Rehearsal Dinner at El Patio (indoor/outdoor). It wasn't too hot or cold, yummy food!




              Private Beach Gazebo--this is the rocky beach behind the gazebo





              Here are photos of the ceremony at the private beach gazebo. It was very private and is located in front of the preferred section but at least ~200 feet from any other people or building. We had 10 wedding party+14 guests=24 total.We didn't add flowers to the gazebo to save $ and it still looked great I think.







              We had the cocktail reception at the Seaside Grille deck




              This was taken at the infinity pool of the main area of the resort (5 ft drop behind us!)




              This is our wedding party on the beach directly behind the Beach Gazebo






              This is the main beach infront of Dreams. It's about 5 feet wide




              Wedding Reception at the Seaside Grill. We chose this because it was airconditioned and had the most neutral colour pallet (Portofino and Bordeaux have bright strong colours that wouldn't match our turquoise and coral)







              The cake was not a priority for us so we went with the standard one that comes with the package for 20 people. They added the flowers for free. We only paid for 1 tier cake and got a 2 tiered half chocolate half vanilla cake that was yummy!

                Congrats and welcome back Vancouver Bride! Thanks for sharing your reviews and pictures! They are beautiful! Would you mind sharing what happened with the extra venue fee? I believe something similar happened to another bride too. Can I ask how much you were charged for the fabric decorations on the gazebo? I think the flowers are not needed at all.

                    I would love if people would send me quotes they got from the WC.

                      Azua...what quotes are you looking for? If you're looking for full wedding quotes.the WC will give you a personalized quote depending on what you want for the wedding/how many people, etc. There are a ton more options for the rehearsal/wedding than are listed in any of the booklets they send you.
