Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! Did any of you stay at or plan to stay at a resort after the wedding? We are thinking of staying at the Excellence for a few days. Anyone stay there? Is it right next to DRC?

 

Appreciate any insight you all have! Thanks!

Hey Ladies-- I just got an email from Gaby-- I hope it is legit.. but lately I question EVERYTHING... have any of you gotten this??  Heard anything of this??  Thanks!!

 

 

Our corporate office would like to film your wedding for a promotional video for the resort marketing our destination weddings and honeymoons. It is a professional film crew and filming will be very discrete. They would like to do it since you are getting your hair done, getting ready, ceremony, cocktails and dinner, will you be ok with this?

 

We would like to offer you a 3-night return stay for agreeing, please let me know if you agree, so they can start with all the necessary arrangements.

 

Thank you!!

Hey girl, I just sent you an email...but also...

 

I drew out a diagram for my table set up in power point.  I had our table at the top of the dance floor and then tables around it.  The dance floor is in the middle of the pool deck and the dj is going to off to the far right (when facing the ocean) which is the skinnier part of the deck.  The bar and food are at the far left over by the trees.  

 

RDSJCR - that is legit - they had a film crew there when we were there - they asked a group of 16 of us to be extras for a day and offered each couple 3 nights stay.  We declined because we didn't want to give up a day at the resort to do what they needed us to do...however if I were you - I'd absolutely take that deal! that's awesome because it won't disrupt your day at all!

Your set up sounds great...would you mind posting or emailing me a copy of your diagram? queenofharts7355@hotmail.com. I want to visualize how 70ish guests will fit on the pool deck...Did you feel like it was tight? Where did you have your cocktail party? Sorry if I'm asking questions you've already answered!

Our wedding is at 4... we are getting our hair and makeup done starting at 1 (me and my 4 bridesmaids)-- they assured me that this was enough time.

 

We are getting married at Dreams and then moving to Secrets Maroma as well!!

    • 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.
