In search of Planner

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married at Coyaba too. They gave me Wedding Planner Plus and Tropical Weddings. I went with Michelle at Wedding Planner Plus because it was cheaper. We don't have 200 people though. We just have about 41 plus a few babies.

 

Most of my fiance's family lives in St. Ann so that's why we are having the wedding there.

 

The only problem we have so far is that we didn't like the cake so I'm having it done here and I'm waiting back from her about them decorating it. I'm picky about my fruit cake.

thanks!
Not sure how I missed this...I loved it! I booked right away! I have pics if you want to PM me your email addy and I'll send you a link.

I went with them b/c we have too many locals, therefore the resorts weren't an option. Still working on the vendor thing -- I know I'll need some assistance with that part b/c Coyaba doesn't provide anything.

I will be adding a videographer and flowers for the BM, MOH, BM and GM. The videographer is around US$200 and the flowers were very reasonable too.

I'm very pleased with her so far.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
