Happy planning!
Boo, what kind of lighting is included? Do you have pics of the cold fireworks?

Amazon.com: Ion Audio iPA03 Portable PA System with iPod Docking Adapter: Electronics
What kind of sound quality? Are you just going to have a guest keep charge of the shuffleing of music and annoucements?

I haven't bought the system yet but the reviews look very good.

I have discussed with a few of my guests to grab the mic and make announcements as needed. The wedding party has agreed. This will only be needed for speeches and such. I was planning on just making a playlist and knowing which songs to listen for that proceed an announcement time. I just think it is silly to pay for a sound system there. I may end up doing that if the tech is really that helpful though.

I would also like to have a DJ but I cannot find that sort of money in my budget. It is nice to know that they provide the cold fireworks. I thought that was an additional cost. I have read some reviews that the DJ often does not provide the songs that you request. My FI is picky with music so I'm sure he doesn't want to pay for something that he won't enjoy.

Good luck to everyone.

Do you have any suggestions for the wedding location? I'm hoping for the beach but haven't been able to confirm this with Ana yet. Also, do you know what the options are for reception locations? I'm so relieved to hear what you said about how busy Ana is.....I was starting to worry that I haven't heard back from her in so long!

Just wanted to add ...DJ Doremixx (Ivan) is very good about playing songs that you request. I think he also can download a song that is requested during your reception if he doesn't have it. He is very good and professional! Our guests are still talking about the great music that he played! I originally was going to use my ipod and bring a sound system but with all the other stuff I was doing, I started to get really stressed about picking good music, making sure there were transitions between the songs, and then how it would be played. I am not super good with that stuff though :). I was really happy in the end that I chose to have a DJ! Oh and the cold fireworks are AWESOME!

I had the technician and sound system for the ceremony and the technician just played the CD that I provided. He also faded the songs so that they transitioned nicely. Not sure how involved he would be at the reception though?

Congratulations! If you check around page 50 or so of this thread, there are pictures of the reception locations. Hope that helps!

Shadup! I was planning on having the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the pool deck. The only thing she had taken was the credit card authorization form and confirmed 4 o'clock. I better call find out exactly what is going on :-s Thank God I saved all the correspondence! Thanks so much for letting me know this.

    • 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
