Ashley!  I know the price difference is CRAZY.  She did guarantee it.  We're guaranteeing 20-30 rooms booked because we're expecting a lot of people and Kev and I are staying 7 nights.  She said that is the minimum we qualify for but that once rooms book, it will probably be even better, like some nights free, etc.  She was awesome.  So our reservation says that room, at that price, and shows the upgrade at the bottom.  Very cool.  :)

Lindsay- would you be so kind to email me your contract? We booked through destination weddings.com and we didn't get that but they do price and deal match. Unfortunatey, we are paying for our own wedding and both my finace and I have public service jobs so we are definitely trying to get the best deal. My email is ashleytart@aol.com. Thank you!!

...oh and if we got a better nightly rate I'll let you know! For us it is about $200/person per night for the garden view rooms and that is for March- peak time of year.

Hey ladies.... I am booked for June 24, 2012.  I have not been in contact with Ana or any WC at DRC since my TA is doing all the contact information for me.  (She has a connection with Ana and General Manager) so they reply to her emails within 10-15 minutes.  I have no patience for this so my TA agreed to be the contact person. LOL

I am working on my Save the Dates. I ordered clear plastic luggage tags and creating my own bussiness cards with the details (front and back) and mailing in a box with seashells all in my wedding colors (fuschia and periwinkle) I have 3 bridesmaids and a Maid of Honor.  I am doing parasols to go along with isle at the ceremony (and then use for pictures later).  I am taking all my decorations as it seems its cheaper this way.  I am ordering my silk flowers (they look so real its crazy) my bouquet along with my bridesmaids and centerpieces.  I just ordered my OOT bags waiting on those.  My wedding invites are going to be passports with the itinerary for the weekend festivities.  Still contemplating is I am going to pay for everyone to go on a catamaran cruise (price $2,200 for 24 people) .  We have a group rate.  (book 5 rooms and the 6th room is comp, book 10 rooms and get a honeymoon suite) pretty awesome.    Sooo excited.  I have stayed at this resort 2x in the past and I love it more and more.

H All, I have been following all the posts and my wedding date is Feb 12, 2012.  The only thing I have nailed down is the resort and date. Unfortunately the pool deck is already being used by another "group" that night so it's not an option for us. Can anyone tell me other places you've held your reception that you've been happy with?  Good luck to those brides whose weddings are just around the corner!!!!!

Ashley, I would love to but it has some personal information on it that I'm not really comfortable emailing.  I would just discuss with your TA upgrades based on room blocks.  That's all we did.  You can tell them what we were promised if you'd like but I don't think my fiance would want me to scan it in and send it.  I'm sorry.  :(

Sounds like you're all the ball!  THAT'S AWESOME!  I considered sick flowers but our friends did it for their wedding in Jamaica and customs was a BIG PAIN in the butt with it.  Just something to think about!  ;)

    • 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!!
