On average, how much are you saving by having your reception here vs your resort? $1,000s? Base on pictures, the place is beautiful. I'm torn though. This place and the possibility of inviting more for less is the only reason I'm considering PC. Otherwise I would choose a location where the majority of my family have never visited.

I did a breakdown and I'm not saving. At the hotel (Bahia) I'd pay $7000 for about 30-40 guests but I'd be stuck with limited meal options, restrictions on locations to have the ceremony and receptions, restrictions on day of week and time of day of the ceremony, extra fees to bring in an outside dj or photographer... tons of fine print. I'm estimating $9500 at Jellyfish for a completely customized experience for a very important event. cheers.gif By the looks of it my decor, cake, DJ, food, photographer etc will be better at Jellyfish. That $9500 includes a photographer and videographer, DJ w MC, open bar etc and tons of privacy and intimacy which is priceless.

I am not sure what we saved bc I didn't look into.it.once we found jellyfish...Asha said it best! Jellyfish had no restrictions & 100% customized, along with better food & drink than at resorts, better atmosphere and privacy etc etc. I know the packages at our resort were more expensive and included less with a lot of restrictions.

This thread has been invaluable!

 

I am newly engaged and always knew I wanted a destination wedding. I have been scouring g this forum since I found it during a research on a potential resort. And then I found this gem of a thread and knew that Jellyfish was the venue I have always dreamt about.

 

I am booked for my September 2015 date on a weekend. :) Mayte told me she was already at 75% for 2015. So glad I was able to get my date!

Hi Ana, Jellyfish was a bit more expensive than the resort (Majestic Colonial). But the resort did 4 weddings per day, and looked all cookie cutter. You will absolutely not be disappointed with JF. It is 100% worth the extra money

    • 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.
