That was a beautiful wedding!! Thanks for sharing it with allof us! Which packagage did you take & how is the payment made once you are there? I cant wait til February!!!!

Well this isn't the resort videographer.  It is an outside vendor, Mike Cantarell Films.  We took a deposit via paypal before we went and then requested to be paid in travelers checks so we did that.

 In tears! It was beautiful. Video is was one of those things I was going to do withouth. But after reading every bride talk about what they would do again, video kept coming up as a denominator. The power of video it, I am doing it and I found a wonderful vendor.

Emily,  

 

We had to use the Dreams Videographer too because it was in the package but I will honestly say for he cost, there is no comparison.  They cannot compete with the quality of outside vendors.  We used them for our rehearsal and while what they put together was nice, it was not digital HD quality.  It was not shot with a DSLR camera.  If things like that aren't important to you, then I would go with the resort.  We knew we wanted cinematography style in our video which is why we hired Mike Cantarell Films.  It is nice to have the rehearsal video though and if you used them for your wedding I think they would do an okay job, but just be aware the style is vastly different.  If you'd like, compare mikecantarellfilms.com videos with the resorts at www.videowedd.com

 

:)  Hope I helped!

Lindsey,

 

Video is amazing! Don't even know you guys, but cried my eyes out as I watched it. :0) How expensive is Mike? And did you have to deal with all the crap of him being an outside vendor, etc.? 

 

Thank you,

Melissa

Do any of you have a template for the keycard holders? I tried to download a template from Avery but I'm getting frustrated, hoping someone on here has one they could email to me. I went to the keycard holder forum, but I don't have enough posts to be able to download documents. 

 

Thank you,

Melissa

    • 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!!
