    The seaside indoor is nice.  We are having our reception there too and saw it in person on our site visit.  They said everything can be taken out and you can use either round or rectangle tables, etc.

      Thank you! We used HDC per the reviews from this site. Charlie was the photographer and Carlos the videographer and everything turned out beautiful! I could not be happier with the photos and video!

        We saw a reception set up at the Seaside Grill while we were there and it was gorgeous! Not sure if they had the inside set up too, since the restaurant has most seating outside and on the deck, but the outside looked stunning.

I told her we are expecting 50-60 guests, do you think the ballroom would be too big for the number of guests we are having? Yanna never answered this question. In the last email she told me she can book and confirm restaurants but not the ballroom...I am greatly confused by that. I don't really want to pay the extra $300 rental fee unless the restaurant is really that much better looking than the ballroom. :BangHead:

              Hey ladies! We just returned from our wedding and it was absolutely amazing!! I was so stressed before getting there and wasn't getting responses from my WC Jenny but after arriving we met Jenny and Yanna and had Yanna for the wedding day. She was amazing and everything was perfect. The resort is beautiful and you have nothing to worry about! Let me know if you have any questions! I will try to post some pictures too.

              Marji I have a probably really lame question.... :-

              I noticed from your pictures that you had the white covered chairs...how did you guys like the chairs? Were they comfortable? Did the white covers look good and classy with the whole setting?

              I really like the Tiffany chairs but am not sure if they worth the extra money...

                Hmm thats so strange that she won't let you reserve it, I would push her for it if thats where you want to have it!  The ballrooms are beautiful...and when you first walk into the building with the ballrooms its gorgeous too, all marble and just really pretty and classy. There are like 8 different ballrooms....I think theres 4 or 5 small  ones, and then 3 larger ones.  But the larger ones definitely wouldn't be too big for that many people!  If you go on the Dreams la Romana website: http://dreamsresorts.com/la-romana/weddings and click on the Destination Wedding Guide, there are the ballrooms and the measurements of them in there.

                    Not lame! I am happy to answer questions since this forum helped me so much! 

                    We did not want to pay for upgraded chairs either so we decided to just see what we got. They are basic plastic outdoor chairs but not uncomfortable or anything at all. The white chair covers actually looked much nicer than I expected. And I originally emailed and asked what sashes were included for free and Jenny sent me 5 colors, blue, green, pink, orange, red, all just solid plain bold colors. But when we got there we told Yanna we wanted blue and she showed us two different options, one was the light blue sheer which we picked. I thought that looked much nicer! Not sure if other brides leave things, or they just have extra laying around or what but we were happy. One thing that surprised me though was we got charged $3 per chair for the number of chairs over 10. When we booked though the wedding guide did not have a price for chair covers and the latest one says $3 so maybe it changed. I didn't argue it since we only had 26 chairs. I tried to attach a picture of the whole ceremony set up but my pictures are all really big and it won't let me use any that are over 10 mb. These two kind of show the chairs more.

                      I hope you lovely brides can give me some help. I'm getting married at DLR next month and still can't decide on flowers and last minute decorations and the WC is taking forever to email back. My spot is the garden gazebo...can't decide if I should do organza draping with some lanterns hanging or just leave it simple... My colors are coral and teal but I can't figure out flower choices with that,. The girls' dresses are almost guava...decisions!!
