Just wanted to let everyone know about something I found out this week!

 

If you are using the DJ for your reception, you can actually request him to be your "technician" for your ceremony as well. It's the same price as renting the sound system ($180) but he will be the technician that comes with it. Which means you can let him know what music you want and not have to worry about bringing a CD or iPod for the ceremony! He told me that he has me down for the ceremony and all I need to do is let the resort know he's going to be the technician so they don't have someone else available for it.

 

I was really excited about this because he's been great to work with and I trust that he knows what he's doing when it comes to the ceremony music!

so I saw up there that someone said we need music for the sand ceremony....

What are y'all going to use? I hadn't even thought about this because I figured it would be very short.

 

So far this is what we have down for our music choices...

 

Seating of guests - Jason Mraz/Colbie Caillet, Lucky

                            Jason Mraz, I'm yours

Wedding party - Train, Marry Me

Bride entrance - Somewhere over the rainbow, Israel K.

Recessional - Colbie Caillet, I Do

 

We are still very torn on weddign party entrance and bride/groom entrance into the reception...

I just got an email from Cecilia. (evangelina --> yamina --> lorena --> cecilia?)

The signature in her email says she works at Dreams Cancun....

She is asking me if we need anything from her before our arrival....confused.gif

 

Has anyone else heard from her also?

I think I'm just going to reply to her and ask if she has all my info, emails, etc.

Hey ladies,

Anyone know the specific min/max # of guests for reception locations? The only ones i'm seeing on the request form are beachfront and garden. I'm curious what the #'s are for like pool terrace, pool deck, ballroom, ect.

Hello!

I am so excited, I confirmed my date today! Dreams Riviera here I come!! April 24, 2013. WooHoo!! woot.gif

 

Anyone know what time the pool closes? My Ceremony (gondola) is at 4pm, just trying to get an idea of how crowded it is. Also wondering because my reception will be on the pool deck, but I don't want a bunch of people swimming around behind us while we are eating (lol). I saw a picture of someone's reception while they were eating and there was this large man haning over the pool staring at the wedding party with a drink in his hand! Awkward...

 

Also, anyone have feedback on the best location for the cocktail hour? I would prefer it to be somewhat private as well.

 

I am so thankful to have found this BDW.com, you are all so helpful!!

    • 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
