I'm getting married next May. What was the weather like and how windy is it during the day (ceremony) and eve (during dinner)? Is it chilly with the wind? Should I wear my hair up? Should guests bring a light sweater?

 

Any insight into that would be great!

Hi HopeToBe,

The weather was beautiful in May. I think we only had a few sprinkles of rain one day. It seemed to cloud over in the distance but never affected the weather at the resort.

 

The weather on our wedding day was gorgeous. It was a bit windy but nothing out of the ordinary for being close to the water (Nothing close to hurricane winds or anything). I certainly don't remember it being an issue but when I look back at pictures I see my guests' hair was blowing around. There seemed to be a bit of a breeze the whole time we were there. No, it is definitely not chilly with the wind. If anything it will feel good with the hot sun. Your guests shouldn't have to worry about bringing a light sweater at all. 

 

I would recommend wearing your hair up. I didn't want to constantly be pushing it out of my face. It would also be a bit cooler since the sun tends to be so hot!

Rashel Edwards quoted me 70 for hair and 70 for make up and 100 for travel.  I'm not getting married until Jan 2014 and she cautioned me to book quickly since she's already booking into 2014. If you're getting married in March you may want to check with her ASAP to see if she's available on your date. 
Hi Do you have the email address for Rashel Edwards pls? Thanks so much!

    • 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.
