Have most people booked their travel package already? I really don't know if it's still too early, or if prices will just go up from here.
I can't wait either! Super excited!

I booked my travel package in Sept.

what have you girls done so far?

 

i have:

Bought my Dress

Bought my cake topper

Aggreed on my cake

booked the venue (Moon Palace)

signed the contract (free package)

arranged time of ceremony (4pm)

sent out invites

created website

booked venue in the UK for party once we're home

booked the photographer for party once home

booked the dj for party once home

arranged bbq menu for party once home

 

that's about it so far.

 

i am still unsure about what exactly i want from my wedding at the MP. I would like it on the beach (have requested but haven't had it confirmed)

 

i don't know if i want a private event or not

 

i've seen suits for the boys and BM dresses for the girls, but not actually done anything about them yet.

 

flowers for me and groom come with our package.

 

i have no idea what to do about a photographer at the MP. im not sure if i'll bother, but i do want good photos. the MP photographers i haven't heard good things about, so i'd need an external vendor, but i don't think i can afford that.

 

hmmmm.

 

what about you guys?

I'm getting married on July 31. So far I have:

Picked out a dress (haven't bought it yet because I'm trying to lose a couple more pounds and don't want to have to get too many alterations)

Prepared invitations and will mail them after the holidays

Picked out the resort (Azul Sensatori) and paid the room deposit and the wedding ceremony deposit

Picked out a cake

Picked out bridesmaids dresses

Decided what groomsmen will wear but haven't picked anything out yet

Decided what will go in OOT bags (waiting until I have the final number of guests coming before I buy anything for the bags yet though)

Decided on the menu for the reception

And decided not to have an AHR becasue the DW is costing more than we planned!

I still haven't decided what I'm going to do about photograpy because the resort only allows two photographers and I haven't really heard anything great about either. Nor have I decided what I'm going to do about flowers. I think I'll bring centerpieces with me and that'll be it for decorations.

The MOH's dress is silver and the bridesmaids dresses are a light pink. My dress is chiffon as well. It's a straight dress with crisscross straps in the back. Very plain. I'm not really into fancy stuff.

    • 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
