That's awesome! James doesn't even want to know how much we've spent...and I really hope the question never comes up =)

Maybe I'll do a spread sheet this weekend.

 

On another note, I took pics of all my planning so far and am going to sit down this weekend and post it, so I can see if I'm missing something.

So, of course I'm not even engaged... but I like to plan, so I have a preliminary budget set up. Let me tell you, getting married is NOT cheap! Dang! So, my number is $29,000. GULP. We are paying for our wedding party to fly & stay, however, and that's $15,000 so I guess when you subtract that it's not that much.

I emailed Mariana at Dreams to see if she could give me some price lists on things like flowers and any extras for the reception that I might want. I want to see what areas I can splurge on and what areas I need to be more reserved on. So far between the ceremony site fee. food, videographer, photographer and accomodation for me and my FI we have already spent half of our budget. I felt as though money would go so much further in Mexico, which I think it does, but there are just so many things I want to do.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
