gorgeous!! We're doing the same colors as you! :)  Did you bring those pink flowers with you that were on the end chairs at the ceremony? Love the way that looked!!
Thanks! Yes, we brought all the flowers except the bouquets and ceremony centerpiece!

Yes I used the sound system. It was nice to hear my entrance music way before the guests saw me. It also helped hear the officiant on such a windy day and with the sounds of people around. I would definatly recommend it. All the ceremonies that I saw at the Gazebo had the sound system I'm not sure if all the beach ones had a sound system though

 Thank you for the feedback. My ceremony is at the beach. My fiance is refusing to say his vows with a microphone. I get were he is coming from, but I am worry my guestt won't hear at thing.

 Lorena the WC corrected herself and the fee for outside photographer is $150. Way more reasonable.

For those that have been to the resort:

 

After our rehersal dinner, we want all of our guests to gather at one of the bars for a "Meet & Greet". Any suggestions on what bar would be good for about 30-34 people? I was going to do the Lobby Bar, but I figureed I would ask here for some insight.

 

Thanks!

My personal opinion is that you made the right choice... i feel like I would rather cut back on other things and make sure the music is great if i had to choose. I think people will be more worried about having fun than other little details.. and good music can really make the party. I also am curious about them announcing the wedding party and all of that because thats also what i want!! Anyone who is trying to decide btwn the DJ or no DJ, GET THE DJ... i also i remember hearing that you can email him way in advance and let him know your style of music and even give him a play list. if anyone has had the dj and had their wedding party announced.. let us know ;)

We don't really have room in our budget to be making such changes, but all in all I feel like it will save us the piece of mind. I won't have to prepare playlists and instruct someone how and when to cue them up.

 

For anyone who has used the resort DJs, do they have microphones? Will they announce your wedding party? announce the dances? announce cake cutting? Will they cater to your style of music? Are they pretty flexible? Do I just provide them with a timeline of events throughout the recption with approximate times?

Thank you for clarifying... I haven't contacted my WC yet regarding Del Sol. I will let you know if I am given a different quote.

My groom is wearing nice linen khakis and a white button down with rolled up sleeves.  The guys are wearing the same khakis but with an aqua button down.  Flip flops, too.  We're pretty casual.

    • 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
