Maybe you could stay a couple nights at the Maya Palace after the wedding. Just an idea! Good luck and I hope it all works out for you!
Yes the Barcelo has 5 hotels on site. We just love the Palace and we want to get married at the gazebo and i know the bride and groom have to be staying at the Palace to marry there...... Our guests want to be with us so it's hard. If rates stay high maybe we could book 1 wk at the Palace and 1 week at one of the others but dont really want to mess our guests around with moving. Fingers x'd the rates come down. Even if just a little. I think they are higher for us as my son will be 13 when we go and from aged 12 they are classed as adults so we have to pay adult price for him. Thanx for sugguestion will defo keep it in mind :o)

The best part about the shower is all the gifts, but for the most part, at least for the ones I've been to, they're pretty dull!
Yes Hen nights are like Bachelorette partys, but sometimes when i hear you ladies talking or see them on the TV (haha) they sound like so much fun... :-)

I think they probably are the same thing to be fair.... You will have to be the one to come back and let us know, what the differences are and if there are any :-) Have lots of fun though thats the main thing :-)

Thanks for all the Save the date love!! I mostly designed them myself in Word and then showed it to FI's cousin (one of my BM's) who created it in Photoshop.

 

Bonnie- the map part was actually from an invitation I saw online that I had her recreate in Photoshop. The little shells were purchased at Michael's I had a TON left over from my mermaid costume last Halloween haha. FI helped me superglue them to metal brads to secure onto the bows.

 

Mexbride-Yes we are defnitely going to do it on a Sunday morning probably from say 11-3. I am going to mention to my mom that we can do it somewhere like a hall or someone's home to save costs. I don't think she'll bite on that, but at least it shows I'm being considerate. I'm also going to get all three moms a nice hostess gift to give them at the shower.

Palace guests can goto the other 4 hotels, but the other 4 can't access the Palace. I was attracted by their Gazebo at the palace too, and willing to go there for my site visit..until their WC were so slow in replying my emails...like 3-4 weeks delay. I am sure they do a fab job (it is a wedding factory there, so WC are too busy to reply emails from anxious brides who are getting married in 12-16 months) as all the bride who went there were super happy and satisfied. However as I am so used to work with real time thing, I will turn crazy, vicious amd aggressive if I have to wait 3 weeks for an email reply.

    • 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
