I do have another question for you though:

Did you get your wedding coordinator a gift or anything?

Hey...no problem.  I agree....with a group of that many...it becomes frustrating waiting.  As the "host" you feel obligated to keep everyone entertained and happy. 

I did not get anything for the coordinator.  We wanted to tip her but could not catch up to her after the wedding.  I saw her a few times but she was always in the midst of another wedding.  I am going to contact her by email and ask for her direct address so that we can send her a tip & thank you. She did a great job, but honestly....you only see the coordinator for a short amount of time.  I had my MOH's mom hold the envelope with the tip money it but she could not find her either.  I was against leaving it with anyone else because I wanted to be sure Gina got it.

We Have Gina and to be honest I am getting very frustrated.  Has anyone contacted their planner directly on the phone without complications?  I haven't tried yet, but waiting forever for email replies is exhausting!  Thanks!!!

You're wedding was beautiful! I have a question for you...The paper lanterns that are hanging, did you bring them yourself or did the hotel provide them? If you brought them yourself how did you get the lights in them?

Thanks JulieJ84!!

The weather was awesome.  It even rained on our wedding day for 30 minutes and then the sun came out.

It was 85 degrees the entire week....at home 100+.

 

We may try to go back next year...or try Dreams Punta Cana....

Please do not worry brides--everything gets straightened out when you arrive at the resort and meet with your coordinator. My coordinator was Gina, she was awesome and did everything the way we wanted. I will be back to put more of a step-by-step review, but for now--enjoy wedding planning!! Here is the link to our slideshow--we also had Anel, she did a great job! She was from adventurephotos from the resort.

    • 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!!
