Its tentatively confimed. I replied to the questionnaire from the resort but have not received my confirmation letter. What is your date and resort @Nursejazz?

Hi fellow brides, does anyone know if we can have the choice of two entree? I know the package say we pick the whole menu for our guests but what if we have vegetarian guests? I asked Yanna this twice but never got a direct answer from her. If there is a choice I would have to include that on the invitations.

@Mandiesue I am getting married July 26th at Dreams La Romana. @flyinchild from what I have seen from other post you narrow it down to 2 choices and your guests can pick 1 of the 2.
Do you guys have any information or pictures that you could send me about the choices available at the hotel. I don't know what the flower options are.... what the cakes look like or even the colored sashes they have. I have over a year, but I want to know so I can budget for upgrades and start picking other items that I may want to incorporate. I find the Dreams Wedding Information from their website useless for actual planning purposes. I appreciate any insight you ladies may have.

Hi Ladies - so glad to have found this forum...I'm currently looking at various resorts in DR and was mostly looking at Punta Cana but then I also looked at La Romana and so far I like what I see at Dreams La Romana.
Just wondering if some of you can let me know what made you choose Dreams La Romana over all the other options.

Got my contract, date, and made my deposit...I feel relieved. Now, I can have fun with decorations, dress shopping and all the other bride stuff.

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.
Hi Nursejazz, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! How long does it usually take Yanna to get back to you when you email her? How many people do you have booked for your wedding so far? (This can sometimes affect their response time if you don't have anyone booked yet - they tend to prioritize people using travel agents & people who have a good amount of guests booked in their room block already.)
In regards to the vendors with the Tiffany chairs - there is a post in this thread about a vendor who can provide them, but they only speak spanish. I know they can be pricey at the resort but depending on the number of guests you have, you can usually get them to lower the price by a few dollars. Also just something to think about - getting them from an outside vendor can be a bit of a pain since the resort is then NOT responsible if anything happens and they don't get there on time, etc., and its just an added thing you will have to deal with on your wedding day.
The ballroom is gorgeous, thats where we had our reception and it was perfect!
You should be able to get confirmations on things as you go, and they will re-confirm everything with you about a month or so before your actual wedding. Just keep in mind that they do concentrate more on the brides whose weddings are closer since they have around 6-10 weddings a week and there are only 2 wedding coordinators.
Also, about the cakes - their cakes are very simple but they're done really nicely and are delicious. If you bring your own decorations, they will do a fantastic job decorating the cake for you, also. Their bakeries in the Dominican aren't like ours here in the States when it comes to luxury wedding cakes. The demand just really isn't there for what we're used to having as options. But like I said, theyre very pretty and soo good! I sent Jenny (who was my WC) a picture of a pretty simple cake (by US standards) and she said we could have them make a FAKE cake that looked like that for $350 and then pass out sheet cake for the guests, lol! Obviously, we didn't do that! And we were very happy with our cake from the resort!
What kind of decorations can you bring for the cake? You are not allowed to bring food with you, right? I was thinking of candied seashells for decorations but I'm scared that I will lose them through customs.

Hi ladies, I came across this special offer on Dreams website where you book your wedding by Feb 28, 2014 and receive a complimentary cocktail welcome party for up to 50 guests. Be sure to ask your WC for that!
Here is the link:
Of course there are terms and conditions, and it does seem to be only applicable for weddings happening during a period of the year. Luckily my wedding falls within the period! I hope some of you get to utilize this promotion as well

I just started looking at this resort for my May 2015 wedding. I was wondering if one of you could help me out since you have to wait so long for an email response. Is it possible to have your ceremony directly on the beach, not in that gazebo? If anyone has any price lists, menus, decoration or other attachments the resort may have sent them could you send me them as well? I'd love any information. I want to be fully informed on costs before making any firm decisions
Also is there a charge to have your reception in the Seaside Grill? I noticed in the wedding information package online it states that there is an extra fee to have your reception in a restaurant or ballroom..... Other than the Seaside Grill is there any other restaurants brides have done their reception?
Anyone ever have a chandelier in their wedding gazebo? cost associated?
