A lot of questions about wedding in TC

Recommended Posts

Morning ladies!

my head is about to explode as I've been researching and looking for info about wedding in TC. wedding is set for Dec. 12 of this year (yeah, 5 months away!). We are looking into staying at Villa del Mar and there will be 15 guests coming. So far, this is all I've got. I don't know where to have a ceremony and reception.

For a welcome dinner I was thinking of having a bonfire BBQ with Kissing fish caterers. Is it a long distance from Villa del mar, which is right next to the Grace bay resort, to the BayBistro? any other ideas anyone has about it?

another questions, I was under impression that unless you stay at the hotel, say Grace bay, you can't have weddings arranged there? is it right? can I still have a ceremony on the beach if I don't stay at the Grace bay?

 

I'm in process of contacting wedding coordinators but haven't heard anything from any of them... while I'm waiting for a response from them, I hope someone can give me any advice.

 

another question, has anyone had a reception at Grace bay? I know they are expensive, but how expensive? what a dinner for 17 people would roughly be?

Hi,

 

Villa Del Mar is about 1-2 miles from Bay Bistro at the most. You can most certainly have a ceremony and reception on the beach whether you are staying on the beach or not. There are plenty of public beach access points. The Villa Del Mar has a section of beach where they set up their lounge chairs etc on the beach for their guests and I am sure you could do it there as well.

 

A Bonfire barbecue with Kissing fish is a great option for rehearsal, Joan and Clive do a fabulous job. I don't know the costs on a reception at Grace Bay Club, as there are many options for food/cake/etc, so that will affect your bottom line.

 

Check out the various coordinators, or contact GBC with your questions.

 

Have to run right now, but will check in in case you have any other T&C questions. Our office is in the Grace Bay area and we have lived there 15 years, so ask away!!!

I decided to go directly through my hotel (Regent Palms) and they have there own coorrdinator but before I was sure I had spoke with Nila Destinations and they were great getting back in touch with me. Seems e-mail is the fastest way. This the Rosalinds e-mail: rosalind@niladestinations.com

 

Try her she was very good and I have heard that Nila has a great reputation.

 

Good Luck.

    • 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.
