Do you get to pick how many chairs are placed in front of the gazebo? I am borrowing my MOH chair covers and sashes and would like to know how many to bring. We have a total of 17 guests.

Which reception venue did you pick? and did you get a DJ?

Thank you again! LOVE LOVE the pics!

I would be happy to answer your questions……..The wedding coordinators placed a chair for every guest in front of the gazebo. There were also chairs on the gazebo for bride/groom/witnesses so I would bring 20 chair covers and sashes to be safe.
We had our dinner at the Mammee Steakhouse and then went to the Sea Grape for our reception. We did have a DJ from 9:00pm-12:00am.
Our one year anniversary was yesterday! My how time flies……..
Anyways, let me know if you have any more questions and Happy Planning!!

Thanks so much for sharing your pictures. I really appreciate the pictures of the Seagrape because that's where we're planning on having our reception. Thanks also for coming back to this forum to answer our questions. It's a huge help!

Congrats on your one year anniversary, too!

Loved the horse! You looked awesome...I can't wait to get down there. I booked Michael as well and after seeing your photos I'm so glad I did. Hey maybe you guys can help me out. I want candles for centerpieces and I just don't feel like lugging those all the way down there. does anyone know if i can buy plain white pillar candles anywhere down there?

OK...one more question..I hope!


I was wondering if having it at the steak house then reception at the seagrape was a hassle. In terms of moving everyone to a different location. I was thinking of doing it like that as well, using the free dinner THEN move everyone to continue with a bit of dancing and a lot of drinking :) but I was unsure about the moving around.


What is your take on this and most importantly how were your guests?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
