Hi LizT,

 

Your wedding looked beautiful!  I loved your pic of the candy buffet and I was wondering if you brought down your own vases or if Mayte was able to provide them for you.  Same question for the candy I guess!  As far a photographer goes, we are looking for something similar where you just get a dvd with all the pics (edited too).  Is that what you guys did?  I was just on Michael's website and noticed he had a package like that, but did not have a price with it.  Would you mind sharing that?

 

Oh, one other thing :)  I know the beach at JF isn't private so I wondered how busy it was with other people and if was a problem for you (or any other previous brides!).  We are hoping to stay at the ME and might do the ceremony there and reception at JF (or maybe just everything at JF!) and I hesitate about the beach at resorts because I know you can often get randoms pretty close by.  Was any of that a problem for you?

 

thanks and congratulations!!

Mimiq, We brought the candy down to Mayte, she provided the vases for threw candy and put it all together. (she did an awesome job). I had sent her a picture of a candy table she had done at a previous wedding and she did the same for me. As for the photographer Michael weiler, if you email him he will send you his priclist. We only had pictures of the ceremony, some family pics after, then did a ttd session. He charged$700, but prices may have changed since we booked. He did an awesome job though, and we had a dvd of 700 shots before we left punta cana (edited) I would highly recommend doing everything at the jellyfish. The ME is nice, but there are so many people around all the time. The beach at the jellyfish was not private but there are much fewer people there and you get a much more personal and quaint wedding! The spot for the beach wedding at the ME is on the beach between the Collonial and the Elegance beaches . . . Lots of people around! There were a few randoms walking down the beach, but no one bothered us. There were also a few people that dined in the restauruant during the reception, but no one bothered us. We had a great time. We did not rent three whole restaurant. Definitely do the jellyfish, you will not be disappointed. (Also, the ME does up to 4 weddings per day, the jellyfish will never do more than one)

Thanks for your advice LizT!  Yeah, we won't do a beach wedding if we do it at the resort, pretty sure we'd only consider the gazebo because it seems a little more private.  Did you happen to see any gazebo weddings?

I saw the gazebo set up for a wedding a couple of times but never watched any of them.  It looked very pretty, though keep in mind that the gazebo is in the middle of the resort, it's not in a crowded spot where many people congregate, but many people do walk by to get from the beach/pool to the lobby or restaurants.  The grounds are kept very nice at the resort and it is very beautiful, but there will  be more poeple around than at the jellyfish.  I'd highly reccomend the jellyfish for both the wedding and reception!  It will be more catered to you and what you would like and Mayte works very hard to make everything perfect for you and for how you'd like the decorations.  It just feels more personalized.

We are doing our ceremony at the Majestic Colonial and then the reception at the Jellyfish. We had already planned our wedding at the Majestic and then we changed our reception to the Jellyfish just a few months before. We talked about switching everything over but in the end decided to leave our ceremony at the Majestic because we qualified for the free one and we are having a 4pm ceremony which allows everyone the whole day to do what they want at the resort.Our photographer also told us that he prefers to do the sunset pictures at the Majestic compared to the Jellyfish so that also helped in our decision. If I would have planned from the beginning I would have probably just done it all at the Jellyfish but I am happy with our decision. I think both places will be beautiful!

Ladies,

 

All the pictures and videos are amazing!  Each wedding had it's own unique and beautiful details and I can't wait to hear about the wonderful day from all of you.

 

Sounds like the fire dancers were a hit and that Mayte's house DJ is a great deal.  Congratulations to all three of you and hope you're relaxing and enjoying your honeymoon's or post celebration time.

Jessica, Liz & Jen :

 

I'm leaving for the DR is 3 days!!! Just took a quick peak at your pictures and all I can say is WOW - your weddings were SO beautiful. I love the colors!!! Can't wait to see more pictures, and chat with you ladies when I get back. I just had two questions for all of you.

 

1.  Jen, this question is for you, I was going to do a sweets table, but after seeing your desserts table, I'm loving this idea more!! Did you just request to have desserts from the JF menu to be placed on your dessert table with your wedding cake? Your cake looked fabulous by the way.

 

2. I noticed there are lanterns in most of your pictures, did you bring down the lanterns yourself, or does Mayte provide them in your wedding colors???

 

Thanks for answering my questions at the least minute!! LOL < I only got 3 days to figure this out!!!! YIKES!!!

    • 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.
