Hi Ladies!

 

I am taking a planning trip to the Jade Jan. 14-16 to try to figure out where I want to have my reception. I had it reserved for the beach, but it is SO windy, and I am having second thoughts. If you would like me to take any pics of anything or get any questions answered for you since I will be meeting with Pilar, feel free to send me a PM and I will do my best to help you!!!

Hi Ally,

 

Thank you so much for your review, it's very helpful.  Especially the recommendation for the florist.  A couple questions regarding the flowers, do you have any pics you could post of the flowers (either bouquets or centrepieces)?  Also did you book one of the wedding packages?  If so, what did you do about the flowers that are included in the package, were you able to swap for something else?  Did the resort charge anything for the other florist to come in?  Did they have to help set-up the flowers, or did your contact set everything up as well?  At the Pergola and the reception, or did you just have the flowers in the reception area?

 

Thanks so much!  Appreciate your insight.

Congratulations Ally!!! Thanks for the review. I am already taking notes. Good to know that you need to make sure Pilar writes down all the little details. I sort of worried about that. I am making a list now to give to her with everything just in case since we are bringing all of our own decorations. I have heard from others about the service being really slow. My only concern is with drinks at the reception. I am going to talk to Pilar about this and see if it's possible to add 1-2 more servers/ cocktail waiters so we don't run into this.

 

The excursions sound like a blast. I am thinking of checking out the ATV through the jungle and swimming in the cenote. Thanksa gain for all the great info!

 

Only 13 more days to go!!!!!

Also..wanted to share my idea - my girls will be carrying parasols instead of flowers...we have a large wedding party and the extra flowers are VERY expensive - and it's just not my style.  The parasols are about $5 - $8 on www.lunabazaar.com

 

Happy Planning!!  I'm lovin' it!!  cheer2.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
