Does anyone know if you can hang tissue poms or beaded crystal strands from the wedding gazebo?

I love the lanterns hanging on the poles! Did you bring these or get them from the resort? If from resort, can you give me an idea of cost for all of those?

Thank you!

It is so much clearer on the DVD on a big screen TV! In fact, I think it might even be HD (which we did not pay for). 

 

Like I said, overall I am very happy with the way it turned out!! And, I had no contact with the videographer before or after the wedding so this was just a standard video. 

 

 

It's long, but thought it might help some of y'all out! 

thank you for this ! i actually dont think the video was bad at all.... i was going to pay a lot for an outside vendor but i think you just changed my mind. i will just upgrade the package because i also want the reception included... i have the ultimate package so this is what was included with it??? not bad at all!

Hi All!

 

It's been a while since I got married at Dreams in July, but I wanted to repost some of my helpful info for those new brides who are experiencing some anxiety.  Trust me, everything will turn out wonderful!!  I wish I could go back to that trip every single day!  Below is a link to my slideshow, review on tripadvisor, tour you tube videos from 2011, and our highlight video from Mike Cantarell.  Enjoy!!

The lanterns were provided by the resort. I paid $150 per pole which had 12 lights on each pole. It was totally worth it in my opinion. I love the way our pictures look with them. And we got compliments all week after the wedding about how everyone loved the light poles!!

Yup, we had the ultimate package and this is what was included. He is there before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and comes where you take your family pics for about 30 minutes (I think the package says he is there an hour and a half total). I think if you had contact with them before hand and gave them some guidelines your video could be even better!!

Can anyone tell me the name of a bar my guests can go to after the ceremony as I need to put in the program so they will know. We are not having a cocktail hour so they need to gather somewhere until the reception starts at 6on the pool deck & the ceremony will be at 4. I'm not sure of the length of the ceremony and how long pictures will take? Any suggestions???

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
