We are planning on doing a cocktail hour meet and greet for our group the day we get there as well as a group "rehearsal dinner" (minus the rehearsal) the night before the wedding at the ME - we will arrange this with ME a couple of weeks prior to our wedding.  We are also planning on using Mayte's DJ - based on price and our group is only 23 ppl, but I still wanted to have the nice dance element for the reception.  I'm sure it will be fine and I'll try to report back.  I am planning to go down with 2 lists of songs that I'd like played for both the cocktail hour/dinner and dancing later in the evening (so he really can't screw that up)!

We are doing the same as you (staying at ME and wedding a Jellyfish) so I am excited to see what was great, good, bad or horrible (hopefully no bad or horrible!) Are you doing either a welcome cocktail hour or dinner a ME?? What DJ are you using? We are going to use the Jellfish DJ but have not seen any reviews on it...

our wedding is Feb.3! it is all going to come up so quick!

Hello everyone!

 

I am wondering what everyone is planning on tipping Mayte? I know it is a personal choice on an amount but a % that everyone is thinking would give me a ballpark. We have a pretty large wedding party (close to 70) so I have to budget this ahead of time and am just curious what all the other brides are thinking. I think I read a couple strands on here about it, but her the life of me I can't find it. Thanks!!

Jlarruda - we totally might run into eachother! - don't be affraid to say "HI" if you see me.  I feel like we are all going through this planning thing together.  I can't beleive how close we are to the wedding!  Your wedding is in 53 days, Mine is in 55 . . . I'm totally counting down!

    • 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.
