Brighter NOTE: We got legally married on Friday !!!!ya for us!! We tried to keep it a secret, but we were too excited to keep it from our friends!!

So NOW back to wedding planning!

Those who have gotten married or who will be getting married...without a MC, but had the speakers and used their IPOD- who announced the bride and groom and things like that.. your first dance etc etc?? Did it seem weird using an IPOD without a DJ/MC?

GOOD LUCK TO ALL =)
o shoot! i hope your fiancee is ok!

Food choices... has anyone decided on that??

I am just going to print everything I want out, and hope for the best!!!
i think there is something on the wedding contract that states they dont receive packages at the moon palace, but i guess if you are sending it to the actual fed ex office, that may be different. its a risky chance tho!

Just want to give one piece of advise for any brides-to-be before I get round to doing a review....make a list of all the photos you want and give to your photographer....I read this advise soo much on this site and didn't do it because I had the attitude that the photographer would know what to do....however if you want specific photos, you need to let your photographer know! I completely forgot about a few photos, and am kinda sad about it...although I know my photos are gonna be amazing without them, I wish i'd remembered...just silly ones like when all the men lift the bride up, or when everyone is running into the sea....I thought I'd remember everything because I was soo into the photos...however on the day my mind just went blank!

Just wanted to share my wisdom for any forthcoming brides....get an email sent to your photographer with some bullet points..or get a list printed to give them on the day :)
Did you use the Moon Palace photographer? That is a good idea though, I don't want to regret not getting certain photos.

OK PEople...this is not a random killing...this is a domestic murder at a resort, which is what I am reminding everyone of. But seriously.....none of us really needed this to happen at the resort we are getting married at. Shit will happen....but Geez...why on my watch!

Had to vent. Sorry.
WHAT! omg! well, im sure there are crime scenes all over cancun, so you can always tell them that when it comes to partying and clubbing in the city. ultimately even if something happend at the resort it should not raise an alarm. murders happen in my hometown and i still live here safely.

i think guests may either be really concerned and worried.... or finding info to make you feel bad, probably steamed off of jealousy. we have seen that already in our wedding. one girl kept talking trash about what we are doing. she is just comparing our wedding to hers that is also coming up.

Thats what we are doing too! So exciting!

No we brought our own photographer which annoys me even more because we paid a fortune...but its my own fault....it has been suggested on here time and time again about making a list to give to your photographer, but me being me thought I knew better, and didn't want to come over all bridezilla like. But looking back, it wouldn't have at all, it would just have gave our photographers an idea of what we were looking for. DOH!!!

For those that got the complementary wedding package...is the beach setup in white included? Is it big and flowy like the "packaged" weddings. Some photos I see the fabric looks like it is less than that on the pictures the resort sends. This flowy look is exactly what I want. I want most things in the packages so buying a package is not a major concern of mine...but if I can get the same or very similar look with add ons for less...why not. I will still need to add some things to the packages..like music and some purchases from home like centerpieces. Any advice?

    • 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
