Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

 

Didn't want to double post, but I uploaded the picture of my dress in the wedding attire section.

 

Once my friends wedding is over this upcoming weekend. I'll start finally planning all the details for mine Woo Hoo!

 

Just wanted to say thanks now for all the tips. I'm more like a thread stalked now. LOL

Can anyone provide any insight into the flower situation.

 

I am currently debating going with the free bouquet - although I'm not a fan of most of the options, purchasing an upgraded bouquet - yet just found out from Tai Floral that the bouquet I want is an additional $100; and making my own bouquet with silk flowers.

 

At least with the silk bouquet I will have it as a keepsake - and also thought that I could do smaller ones for my BM's.

 

Any thoughts or suggestions about this would really help! I really don't want to get there and regret not doing something myself or getting stuck with flowers I hate.

 

Thanks a bunch ladies! cheers.gif

I'm having the same dilemma right now.  I really don't care to much about my flowers but after I seen the free bouqet options I'm not sure if I like any of them.  I guess they would work but honestly most of them are pretty ugly and I don't want them in my pictures.  I think I might just pay the extra to upgrade to a bouqet that I will like.

I agree on the flower front ladies. The free ones from Tai Floa had me:eek: Flowers were ot initially importan to me u when I saw the ones from Jan's I fell in love. Will be getting my bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 4 boutts and corsages for our mums from them. They hav been fab on the communication front too. Tai ignored my email for 2 weeks:mad: We've just 7 weeks to go now. I need to start posting more often!

Hi Jodiann,

                   I have picked this resort as well by my travel agent won't book our trip there until she gets confirmation back that a wedding date is available. I am there right with you with the nervousness. Im asking people to spend alot of money to come on this trip and am worried about  my decision now. I as well want to thank all the girls for thier posts and stories. Does anyone have any information on how difficult it was to get them to reserve you a wedding date, how long I will be waiting to hear back.

Being in charge of picking a place for all your family and friends to spend their vacation and their money on is a harsh reality to have on your shoulders. undecided.gif I mean its booked for us, and everyone knows this is where its going to be, so I guess now its just working with what we have. But I am def nervous now, not only about the resort but about everything.

 

Cupcake & Mrs. Johnson, you guys are amazing! The time you have taken to write everything you have for everyone is great, thank you so much! Also both of you looked GORGEOUS on your day, and the wedding itself looked amazing. And all of your pre-wedding planning with bags and decorations and everything else is such a big help. After seeing all of your posts from start to finish, I am nervous! I hope I can pull it off too!

Hey Temandrob - did you have any runner-up photographers?  I'm Merrick is my #1 choice at this point but it is HARD to compare when you've seen so many!  I just want to make sure that I'm choosing the best one for me!

Does anyone have a picture of the wedding cake supplied by the hotel?  Has anyone dared to have the hotel make a cake resembling a picture that you have supplied?  Any pictures would be fantastic!  I'm a bit leary of getting them to do something out of the ordinary.

    • 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
