    I've been trying to get in contact with Dreams La Romana and no one has gotten back to me. Should I call?

      Thought I posted this last night but it isn't showing...

      I'm attempting to pick flowers and decorations for the garden gazebo/tables/etc for my wedding at DLR next month.  Attached are my colors and bridesmaid dress (but short).  I am having SUCH a hard time deciding if i should do draping/lanterns on the gazebo or just leave it as is?? And I can't decide anything as far as bouquets with these colors that don't look drab. Any help would be so appreciated since I just feel sooo lost.  Thank goodness I'm doing destination because detail planning a wedding would have been atrocious for me!

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. 

         

         

        This is so helpful! Thanks Marji! I did not know they provide free sashes...I will definitely ask her for that!

            So...I confirmed the venue for the ceremony and cocktail hour with Yanna! :)

            The reception location still proves to be a struggle...Yanna says there is a convention booked, the best we can do is to wait till I get there and confirm with the convention people how many ballrooms they need and if they can spare one out for the wedding. Otherwise I think I am going with Seaside Grill indoor. 

            For the brides that picked an indoor location, did you guys (or are you going to) get the pacquet dance floor? I can't tell from the pictures that if the floor is marble or something and if it requires arrangement for dancing. Our families are the big "eat, drink and dance" type. The seaside indoor says it sits max of 70 people, but i am not sure if the dance floor is being factored into the estimation.

            Flyingchild, I think that the 70 person max is being factored in. I told my WC that I my DJ is bringing a dance floor and she didn't say anything except to make sure that the size of the dance floor is not too big.

            Hello ladies! I am new to the forum and I have been reading all the posts and getting some really great ideas! I have my wedding date confirmed for July 26,2014 and I am getting married in the Garden Gazebo. I have Yanna as my wedding planner and I am having tons of trouble communicating with her. I have read posts that they are not good with emailing back, so I guess it's something I have to deal with. I am thinking of doing my reception in the ballroom since their will be AC. Does anyone know of any vendors that may speak English for the Tiffany chairs? Also how far in advance did you guys start to confirm things like center pieces, decorations etc with your WC. I would like to do it now as I do not like doing things last minute.

            One more question has anyone used an outside vendor for the cakes? I am really not impressed with the selection of cakes that the resort has, they are very plain.
