From what Ive seen their photos are not great at all and they charge a ridiculous amount of money for less than average photos

Brandy, that sucks they don't allow outside vendors to come in for your wedding. You'd think they wouldn't care since they're making so much money from us already! I didn't like the photog at our resort either and they charged a TON! We're bringing our own photographers down with us that did our engagement photos and they're amazing and it is only costing us a little more than the resort charges for their photographers!! We're not paying vendor fees either because they're staying at the hotel with our group. I really wish these hotel chains didn't try to strong arm people to use their services. Especially when we're already bringing ~20-40 people with us!!! They should just have good services that people want to use!!! On a side note, I've been up for 27 hours now...Probably won't get any sleep for at least another 8-9 hours. This day is brutal!!! I'm going to crash so hard tonight!

Thanks Lisa and Mocha! We actually bought a Groupon for it about 6 months ago. The group on included a free consultation to ensure we're candidates so that is what I plan to book this weekend. I want to get it done as close to the wedding as possible. Did they tell you how long it lasts for? I've read that using a sensitivity toothpaste leading up to your appointment can help with the pain. I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with all the appointments coming up!

My wedding is at 5p. I managed to actually get some things accomplished last night. I ordered the rest of my meds for the OOT bags (by the way you ladies really need to check out Shoplet.com!), the holders & coils for my key card holders, my Jamaica bottle openers, and even limped around Hobby Lobby last night for some more real touch flowers. Now I just need to buckle down and tackle some projects this weekend. FI is taking me to dinner for my birthday so we'll see how much I actually get done!

    • 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.
