Ok, I don't think I'll be able to upload these sized files, so I'll just post a regular post on Nadia's behalf with the pictures uploaded from PhotoBucket.
So here goes ladies, enjoy!
Iâ€™ve had quite the week but Iâ€™ll spare you the long story and skip right to the juicy details!
I met with Tiara, she is a LOVELY young lady and SUPER busy! I now understand why she barely has time to answer our e-mails! For the record, she does not have an assistant but has asked many times to no avail, to be given one.
Anyhow, for those of you who were still feeling unsure about your choice of DLR, let me reassure you that you will NOT regret your choice for one moment!! The resort is simply breathtaking!! I feel that Iâ€™m qualified to make this statement considering I have attended weddings at both Dreams Palm Beach and Dreams Punta Canaâ€”DLR is without a doubt the BEST of the three.
Now to be fair, I will address the ONLY issues that I thought were so-so but certainly not deal breakers.
First, the lobby; the phrase â€œnever judge a book by its coverâ€ comes to mind. The lobby is unimpressive, a little small, a little dark but entirely sufficient for what you need it for (check in-check out). If you allow the lobby to influence what you feel the rest of the resort should look likeâ€¦you are guaranteed to be knocked flat on your back with awe! I felt like I was entering an entirely different world when I exited the lobbyâ€¦beauty, grandiose grounds and just overall perfection!!
Second, as you exit the lobby there is a temporary concert size stage smack in front of you! (will attach picture in the next overview I do)â€”Anyhow, it was Kind of like the ones youâ€™d see at the park in the summer for concerts. I was a bit taken aback by this monstrosity when I first saw it but when I spoke to Tiara (and a few guests) about it they all told me how wonderful the shows had been that were performed thereâ€¦PEOPLE WERE ACTUALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ENTERTAINMENT (This is unheard of in the DRâ€¦trust me on this one!)
Okay, onto other stuff. First I want to discuss the Wedding Gazebo. All I can say is OMG!!! I actually started crying when I saw it!! It is tucked away quite nicely, across from the preferred club buildings and just behind the back of the SSG. Of all of the possible wedding locations on the resort, this one is the most private.
The gazebo is HUGE, and the view is stunning, whether youâ€™re sitting down (guests) or standing up (bride and groom). There is plenty of room for chairs if youâ€™re having a big wedding (easily fit 100-150 or more). My only caution are the white stones. They are NOT pebbles so be careful what type of shoe or no shoe that you wear because it was a little tricky to walk on. (Wedge or platform would be best I thinkâ€¦but a heel might also give you an anchor by piercing through the stones right to the ground.)
more to come...
