Savs and Upcoming Brides and Future Brides:

 

So I just got back from our wedding and I know there was a couple things I told you that after having our wedding there I would let you know. However, I'm drawing a blank right now. But I know your wedding and other December 2012 brides are right around the corner so any questions you may have please let me know.

 

Here are a couple things for upcoming brides to think about in terms of timing:

-Sun sets at 5:30 sharp, but the pool is more or less shaded around 4:30 pm

 -Our ceremony was at 3pm with cocktail 5pm and dinner 6pm- I thought these were great times and left us picture time in between with lighting and the sunset

 

-We had the cocktail at the North Jacuzzi- Great Spot

-Reception- Pool Deck- loved the ambiance but the only complaint I have is that it was extremely windy on our day and all the sand from the beach was blowing up and getting all over us and in our eyes. If they would put up some sort of clear shield thing in between it would help but after some drinks people didn't mind at all.

 

-Rehearsal Dinner- We reserved 10 ppl at Bourdex, but to be honest its not that necessary unless the resort is super packed as we were able to sit 12 people another night at the Portofino with no problem.

 

-Food: All the restaurants on the resort were GREAT, our favorite was Portofino as there are just sooo many choices on the menu and you really can't go wrong with any of them.

 

Photographer- We had Anel- she is absolutely amazing to work with and her pictures turned out well. Will post slide show once I have it.

 

DJ- Cesar- he got the party started and we didn't sit down the whole night. This was money well spent!!

 

Spa- My hair and make-up turned out great, I did take a picture with me for my hair and they did it exactly like the picture. However, some of the others in my group did not and just described to the girls what they wanted and they all turned out awesome.

 

Overall- The DREAMS Riviera is by far the best All Inclusive Resort in terms of food, service, cleanliness and just everything all together that I have every been to. I'm soo happy I choose to have our wedding here. The only downfall is that the resort is very Family oriented (more kids then expected) but you get used to it after a day or so.

 

So, those of you who have choosen this resort for your upcoming wedding and are stressing about the non responses from the wedding coordinators, TRUST ME AND DON'T WORRY!! They are extremely busy and will have everything organized once you meet with them and it will all turn out perfectly :) I'm type A and had to trust past reviews that the coordinators had it together and stop stressing and I'm so glad I did as they really do have all your info in a folder ready to go and make your day come true!

 

Best of Luck to all future Brides out there and CONGRATS!!!

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR DETAILED REVIEW! My wedding isn't until March but I needed some "updated" peace of mind!

Lots of April brides here by the sounds of things!  We're getting married April 18th, 2013 and will be at the resort April 14th - 21st.  We'll have 25 adult guests and 6 children with our group.  Does anyone know how the children work in the wedding package, in terms of the guest numbers for dinner etc.?  All of the children in our group are young (the oldest is 6) so I canâ€t see them taking up one of the 20 guests included in the wedding packages, but Iâ€m not quite sure how that will work in terms of up-charges for extra guests for cake, dinner, etc.  Are children under a certain age included in all the wedding festivities for free, or at a reduced rate maybe?  When booking our travel packages, I think children under 2 travelled free, and children under 12 qualified for a child rate, so maybe there is something similar for the wedding, but I'm not really sure.

 

 

I'm having trouble deciding how many extras to buy from the resort, and how many extra little things to bring with us (personalized napkins, coasters, etc etc)...  I'm trying to keep it relatively simple so that we're not dragging a million suitcases with us, or blowing the budget, but it sure is hard making all of these decisions!

Does anyone know how I should bring the music for the technician at the ceremony?  CD, mp3 player , or do they have music and you just tell them what songs you want?

    • 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!!
