We are date twins!!! And we both are getting married with a Karisma resort. How fun! Love the Azul but we wanted adults only. Can't wait to hear more about your plans :)

Yes! I'm so worried that the prices will go up and no one will be able to afford to come anymore. I know it's probably totally irrational, but it's definitely keeping me up at night!

On an up note, I finished our info brochures! They're pretty simple, but I'm happy with the way they turned out!

I need to start looking into venues for our AHR, but the DW planning stuff is so much more fun right now :)

Its not irrational! I feel the same way! Its hard planning little things like welcome bags and and pre-wedding packages if you dont know whos all going for sure. I have a lot of "yes's" but only one person booked. Do you mind sharing your brochure? Ive been trying to start something similar, but I have no idea what to add or where to start.

That's awesome! I'm excited to finally meet a date twin! We're super excited about the Azul Sensatori. It looks great and we've heard great things about it. We couldn't do adults only because of nieces and nephews and friends with kids. The AS seems to have a great kids program and adults only section. Best of both worlds!

Has anyone sent out official invitations yet? We did STD's in December. Our invitations will hopefully go out in April? Finger's crossed. I'm just getting a little nervous about not having many people booked yet. It's still 7 months away but I was hoping more people would have at least paid a deposit by nowhuh.gif Am I crazyhuh.gif

I don't know..from what I hear, it sounds like a lot of people like to wait until the last minute. I've already sent the STD and I have a website set up so people can go there for information on how to book. I am not sure how many have put down a deposit yet, hopefully my travel agent will let me know in the next month or so.

Regarding the invitations, I'm still unsure how early to send those out. I have a lot of friends getting married early summer and I still haven't received invitations from them, but then of course they aren't getting married in Mexico. Personally I was thinking about sending out the invites around August (3 months beforehand)...because if they REALLY wanted to come, you think they would have looked at my STD and website and started the booking process...but maybe I'm wrong.

When is everyone sending out their invites?

    • 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.
