Just one question if you dont mind me asking. I am wondering how much extra you paid to get all of your pictures on cd, and if this included the rights to them so you could make as many prints as possible.

Congrats on a very special day!
Thank you! and congrats on also choosing dreams. You will NOT be disappointed. We paid $350 for the cd. I think the cost depends on how many pictures they take? Im not sure. Also, Juan emailed me a letter stating that I do have the copyright rights to do whatever I want w. them, but I have not gone to have any printed yet. Im hoping the letter works, although it is just a word document with no signature or letterhead or anything? Weve been so darn busy since we got back, I have not had time to choose the extra pics I want to print, so many to choose from! :)

Congrats on your soon to be new addition. I have a yorkie and my friend has a shitzu very adorable dogs.


Im very happy to help you in any way I can! :)

Wow and I was thinking of doing pictures before the ceremony. I know it's super taboo but I really want to enjoy cocktail hour with the guests since we will have the mariachi trio as well. I hope I won't melt. I don't know how you ladies did it. You both don't look like you broke a sweat...lol!
Every month is hot, but August is SUPER HOT. My hubby had a towel w. him and was constantly wiping mine and my moh's sweat! lol.

Thank you! My mom has both yorkie and shih tsu- the yorkie used to be mine but I left it w. her when I moved- I didnt want her to leave her sister the shih tsu! :) I miss having a dog and cant wait to hopefully bring him home:)

Yeah - I shouldnt complain because we were in scorching hot mexico and we had nonstop sun everyday we were there! So, we were lucky!

I noticed that you have something on your signature about adopting animals... we are in the process of rescuing a shih tzu, we have the home visit sat! I hope we get the lil guy! :0)
Exactly, we had sun every single day, except the day we left, it poured!! :-)
I love sharing my "dreams Knowledge" now that I am back and have experienced it. It's true, so many people have helped us along that way, it feels good to be able to give back :-) Although I am not on hre nearly as often since the wedding :)

Good luck on adopting your little guy!! I am REALLY excited for you!!!
I am a shelter Volunteer and I love all of the dogs & cats there. It's a heartbreaking situtation, but the happiest of times is when they get adopted.
So good for you and I wish you lots of luck! :)

I just cant say enough about Dreams and I still want to be back there right now! haha. aw thanks! I actually have our lil guy right next to me now! He came home yesterday. I am a teacher and would like to consider volunteering at a shelter on my summers off. Its so sad to see and hear about these poor helpless animals lives- but you are right- so awesome when they get a chance to a new life.

Beautiful wedding! I love positive reviews of Dreams- I chose Dreams Huatulco and it's nice to get the reassurance every now and then. You were beautiful and it sounds like the ceremonies went off without a hitch! congratulations

Hi Mel, I was trying to decide b/t the beach and gazebo and after seeing your pics, it's definately the gazebo. Thank you for the great review!! One question...how long did you have the photographer for? Did you pay for any extra time and if so, how much was it?

Hey Carolina! Sorry I have not been on in awhile to answer your ?'s! The photographer that comes w. the package was there before the ceremony, during the ceremony of course, and about an hour after. They never seemed as though they were rushing us at all... If you want them to come early before and take pics while you are getting ready, i think you can request a price from them.

Mel - you looked absolutely gorgeous on your special day! Thank you so much for the great review. It will only help us future brides in our destination wedding journey. Can I ask what you did for your OOT bags? I'm trying to get some ideas.

    • 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.
