I think at thihs point, for me it's more a want than a need.....

 

I think the additional $$ for the beach set-up is if you would like additional colors added to the arch and what not.  If you do your ceremony on the beach it comes with the arch as well as the white fabric to drape on it.  Therefore, if you are ok with the white you don't have to budget additional costs in.

Thanks! I've emailed Yamina to use it. I'll have to see if she winds up charging me.

Question about rooms??? What room layout do you recommend? Amanda, I see that you stayed in the Preferred Ocean Club view, was this nice? What floor do you recommend? Also, I have to provide room recommendations for my guests, do you have any suggestions?

I think the pictures cost as much as the wedding would have and thats all we paid for. We just went to dinner right at 6 as a group and had Yamina bring the cake there so we didnt have to pay extra. My sister braided my hair and I did the rest. 

 

 

Thank you for the kind words.

I don't think this has ever been brought up on here and only those of you who've actually had your wedding already may be the only ones to answer this...

 

I've noticed that every price that Eva has given me is $$$ + tax. I just looked up the tax rate in Mexico and it's 16%!!!!

Is every price they give us and quote us subject to this 16% tax?? That adds so much more money that we weren't expecting to spend! 

 

Our tax rate here in Texas is 8.25% so 16% seems extremely steep!!!

Hi Amanda, i thought i saw you when we were down there we were at the restaurant when you were doing your reception! I wanted to say hi, but wasnt sure if it was you!

Yamina said they dont normally do that but it was no big deal. They ended up sitting us in these big king/queen chairs and we also had them bring the cake there. By the way the cake for 10 people is tiny and we ordered marble and I didnt care for it. El Patio was my favorite and second Oceana. El Patio is a fun atmosphere and will be good for a reception. Oceana had the best steak! I dont mind answering questions at all. Im sad our trip is over. Id love to do it all over again.

The gazebo can be used for free with a wedding package. What does is the decorations to put on it.

Every price that they have given me has an 11% tax to it. I think that is so high

    • 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.
