Hello !!  I have never been before. Im really excited but as a Bride its stressful to not know details that I wish I had some answers to.  I want the ceremony out on the private beach near the Ruin and I believe im renting the Palapa for a private reception. I have asked them to send me some pictures so I can have an idea of what to expect but I haven't seen much :( 

Have you been there before ? 

Thank you for chatting with me, i feel like im on a really old site bc all the GS Brides are no where to be found lol

From what I got from the wedding coordinator Araceli, the beach is by the ruin is rather public, there is a different one that is more private.  And actually there are still quite a few brides on here.  A couple just got married there in the last couple months so you might want to read back abit as there is a lot of helpful info in the thread.  Happy planning.

No problem Michelle! :)  Sometimes I go while between replies myself  just because I personally find that sometimes I get a bit foum addicted and need a few days off, lol. I think some of the others on the forum feel that way too :D

 

The resort is great! I've been twice already! It's not perfect of course, but no resort is. Like Denita said, the best thing to do is to start at the beginning and read through the whole thread, you'll find lots of good info, and most of it is fairly recent! (the past few months really!)

Hey Everyone,

 

How did I just stumble across this forum now? I am getting married at the GS in just a few weeks (April 28, 2011) and didn't find this until now! LOL

 

Anyways I was just wondering if anyone has some last minute advise? Is there anything that anybody would have changed or something that just made the day perfect?

My biggest advise would be to bring all of your correspondence from the coordinator and photographer. This helped me a lot and there was no question what was included. You will have a wonderful time; we had a wonderful wedding.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
