Wow thank you so much for all that info!!!! Ok so I really need to be there before my guest as I need to be there 4 working days before my wedding.

 

The 4 witnesses can't be members of my familly right?

 

Oh, and does anyone has the email adress of the wedding coordinator??

 

Thank you soooo much again....I really really appreciate :) !!!

Our guests were not next to each other but in the same building and not that far from each other, so it wasn't that bad.
Hi Sunset78,
How did your guests know what time the rehearsal dinner was at? My concern is I won't be seeing some of the guests beforehand, so I'm not sure how they will know what time to meet. I wanted to tell them in a letter I'm sending before we leave.

Though I told them what restraunt I wanted in the paper work, the finalization at the resort is when she confirmed the time. You can call the guest and leave a message, just call front desk to ask them to forward your call to such and such's room.

 

I saw eveyone all the time since most times we would meet for supper, and I also meet evryone when they arrived. So I was able to mention it a couple of times to people.

And also that I can't choose the rehearsal restaurant beforehand, because they don't know if it's available. And also that they can't guarantee that our guests will be put in rooms close to each other. I have less than 30 guests. How is it possible that the coordinators don't know? My wedding is more than a month in advance. It costs alot of money to have a wedding at Iberostar, and I'm not getting the few things I'm requesting. I tried politely to explain my frustration, and they responded with "This is how all the hotels of the world work." Does anyone have any insight for me? Thanks!
That is so weird. Karla asked me awhile ago which restaurant I would like to have the rehearsal and what time. She did say we could either do 6:30 or 8:30.

Regarding the rooms, our travel agent is going to give her Iberostar contact a list of all the guests and will be requesting that they are in the same building. When we stayed at the Lindo last year for a wedding we were in the same building as everyone else. They may just say that to cover themselves in case they are unable to accommodate.

Maybe the reason they can't guarantee a chapel rehearsal is because if there is rain my wedding will be moved there. But, hopefully that is not the case!!! That is so fun that you are getting married the day after us!!

Hope this helps!!

Hi Leah,

Very cool that we are getting married the same week! Maybe we will run into each other! I haven't worked with Karla at all, only Mayra and Lily. They had me fill out the request form, but then they emailed me back saying that cannot guarantee anything. I know they are trying to do their best. I guess I was just frustrated because anything I've said I'd like to have is either not available or double the price, because it's not standard. For example, red calla lilies instead of white. It's so difficult communicating through email. I'm slowly learning to just be flexible. What I really want more than anything is BEAUTIFUL WEATHER!!!

And I'm sorry if I missed it in the posts already, is there a private reception at the Lindo? I didn't think.

LDeeken & Lindobride - are you in Chicago or the suburbs? I'm in Joliet :)
I am in Lisle, just down Route 53 a piece, LOL.

I think we are going to stick with the Lindo after all. SO hard to make these decisions before our site visit. Why must I do everything backwards, Haha.

Yes, there are a few pricate reception choices, the Cajun restaurant, a beach party, and the Los Vitrales which is in the convention center I believe. I can send you pics if you're interested.

    • 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.
