Alison....too funny! I remember back in July 2009 and it felt like July 2010 would NEVER get here! It was a big deal when January rolled around...and then the 6 month mark....so on and so forth! Counting months...then weeks and soon days! We've all been there...staring WAY OFF into the distance...but it really does go by fairly quickly. The day to day events in your life pass the time by so quickly! Enjoy it!

Ok ladies, let me tell you this... with one week to go until I say "I DO" DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN NOW WHILE YOU CAN :) !!! LOL!!! I leave for Cancun on Tuesday night and I still have a million "little things" I have to finish before I go. Finish BM earrings, finish guest book pages, finish table numbers, create placecard labels, etc. I got a lot done throughout the months but could have made sure things were done COMPLETELY a little sooner. I'm sure I'll get it done but it would have been nice to just worry about what I was going to wear instead of wedding details at this stage. I'm so EXCITED!!!!

Then your guest will be able to make reservations. 72 hours for guest to book doesn't sound right at all....... My guest have been able to make reservations for almost an entire year..
Ahh thanks for responding. It's good to know your guests could book for a year. I think it's the policy with the TA I'm trying to work with, but I'll talk to the WC and hopefully she'll let me book my guests for longer to count towards room nights.
We have 0 bookings and 4 months to go, so the stress is gonna start pouring in I'm sure.crybaby2.gif

sorry to get off of topic ladies but can I have some advice on what restaurant to have my wedding dinner at? I am having a small wedding at Moon Palace ( 10 people) and was wondering what would be a nice restaurant to have my dinner at?

My favorite restaurants when I was there a couple years ago were the Caribbean/Seafood Restaurant on the Grand side & La Trattoria at the Golf Course. A lot of people like the Brazilian steakhouse (Arrecifes), I thought it was just okay. Arrecifes does have a nice outdoor terrace though so your wedding dinner could be more private out there. I don't know if any of the other restaurants have a terrace.

luchdiamond,

 

There is a good thread dedicated to the restaurants at Moon Palace. I will find and bump it for you so you can find it.

 

PS - We are having our small (15+ people) reception dinner at the Arrecifies restaurant on their terrace)

    • 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.
