Back from our amazing wedding at the melia cabo real!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for your replies! I am still working on getting my review up, and our photographer said she will be posting more photos soon, yaaaay!! (FYI she is located here in San Diego, is incredible and very affordable!)

I did my hair and makeup myself - just barrel curled small sections (wrapping hair around curling iron instead of clamping it), hairsprayed the crap out of it and loosen the curls so you don't look like little Bo Peep.

Lori L hope your wedding at Dreams is amazing! I've heard only good things :-)

Sita your pics look amazing! We are currently starting to plan our wedding at Dreams but I am curious to know if I can use an outside photographer, as I too live in San Diego and am interested in Taryn's work. I may contact her to see about doing our engagement photos here in SD. Thanks for the info and Congrats on your beautiful wedding!

Kristen, if you're getting married at Dreams you can definitely use an outside photographer, we did.

Hi! I saw that you are in England, so I'm not sure if this will be helpful, but I got the flower at Michael's (Arts & Crafts store in the states), and just pinned it into my hair. I have seen websites that do really beautiful hair pins, if you want to spend the money. I happen to be a footwear designer so we were able to get our sandals through our vendor, but I have heard girls getting great deals at Old Navy (again may be different in England) sometimes as low as 2 for $5. Good luck with everything - I am jealous of your Greece wedding location! I'm sure it will be beautiful,

Thanks,

Sita

Thanks for posting so quickly. Your wedding looked gorgeous. Love your dress!

 

I am trying to decide which all-inclusive resort to book my wedding: Melia Real, Dreams, or Riu Palace. Melia's lobby looks really trendy on their website. Is the rest of the resort just as nice? Are the restaurants modern? The company who owns Melia also owns Nikki Beach, so I am hoping Melia Real is similar in style.

 

Our friends like to party so we will be making a few trips to the city for the nightlife. I read on trip advisor that it isn't too far away .. about a $25 cab ride.

 

I also heard the beds are really hard and uncomfortable. Did you get any sleep? I could fall asleep on a cement floor, but I don't want my guests to complain.

 

Any input would be really appreciated.

    • 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.
