Dreams Palm Beach?

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies! I am new to the forum and also planning a wedding in DR for August 2010 and I am trying to decide in Dream Palm Beach would be the ideal location for me and my hubby. We are only expecting between 30-40 guests (hopefully) as we are trying to have a small chic inspired ceremony. Also, does anyone know much about hurricane season in DR?

 

Thank you so much in advance.

 

Congrats to all the ladies getting married in DR :)

Ladies -

 

Trying to decide between resorts - I'm expecting to have approx. 45 guests at our wedding and the packages that Dreams has are for max 20 guests. Does anyone know what the per person charge is for the additional guests?

I have attached the Menu Options for 2009 from Dreams, it has the additional price per person listed under each option. Hope this helps!

Hey Chelymo,

Whats your email address? I will send it to you that way too. But you should be able to double click on the file and it will prompt you to open or save the file, hit open and then it should pop up in adobe since it is a pdf file.

Erin,
Most hotels let you bring your own photographer and just ask that you pay a vendor day pass fee if they are not guests at the hotel.
I assume you are asking this question because you liked Michael's photos wink.gif !!!
Using myself as an example, Michael is not staying at my hotel and the PPR just requires that I pay $120 for him to be on site for the day to shoot the wedding. Most of the hotels require this same sort of fee.
I hope you get your questions answered and let me know when you make a decision!!

HA!! Pat and I are weighing the options and I sent Michael an email to get more details before we decide on anything. I am waiting for a response from the wedding coordinator. I know I saw that if you bring a photographer at the Melia, then there is some crazy copyright fee. I just want to double check.

I am in the same boat of expecting about 40-60 people. What I've noticed is that many resorts almost seem to penalize you for having so many people at your wedding which I think is ridiculous. I know you have to pay extra for your private event, but you'd think you should be rewarded some how for bringing them so much business. In any case, that's one thing I don't like about the Melia, which is the other resort I am considering, is that while it is so beautiful and perfect for us in many respects, it seems like for a group our size the wedding will be quite pricey, especially compared to Dreams.
Hi Princess, Can you please email me the wedding package with extra's for Dreams? The wedding planner did not get back me and I cant open the attachment in your post. My email is michelle_wht@hotmail.com

Thanks so much!

    • 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.
