Pilar told me today that it is $15 per person for every extra hour over 3 hours for your reception.  She said they have to charge this for the Union and that it doesn't go to the hotel.

OMG!! I leave for my wedding in 2 days. The time has gone by so fast. In the beginning I had so many ideas for decorations, gifts, etc... but because people and other things have been stressing me out so much I've cut everything. I'm getting just the Divine Package with no extra anything!!! I didn't buy any additional decorations or chair bows like i originally wanted. Nobody is getting any OOT bags. I'm not having a wedding party except for my 7 yr old son. I wish I would have decided on that from the beginning it would have saved me so much time and headaches. I'm finishing up packing right now and doing my music...late..I know. lol I'm so excited to go now!!!! I'll be there from Feb 15-25 and the wedding is on Feb 19, ceremony at the Fountain, cocktail hour and reception at Pure Restaurant. So I guess I will speak to you ladies when I get back!!!!

Good luck Mischaka! Regardless of all the extras you didn't do, that is not what it's about anyway. It's all about you and your future husband and everything will be beautiful. Don't let other put a damper on your day. Enjoy and have a few for me. Can't wait to hear your review when you get back! All the best!

Good luck Mischaka!! It will be wonderful!

 

I have made the same decision as you. We will keep it simple, because we can't afford extras and we wanted a laid-back wedding. We never planned on having a bridal party, but I have decided to not do OOT bags these last couple of days. We just don't have the time or the money. As far as decorations, if I can find the money I might get chair bows, fans and something for the reception, but if not it will still be beautiful.

Mischaka have fun! I'm glad to hear others aren't doing a lot of extras as well.  Same here, no wedding party and we don't even have a package.  I think all you need is your family and close friends and the beach!  Can't wait to hear your reviews.

Mischaka, good luck and have fun.  I wish that I had told myself no extras from the beginning.  after all, the whole point of a destination wedding is to be relaxed and have a good time .  See you there -I leave in 4 days.

I know some of us are stressing over the amount of extra things we are planning on bringing down, and I know this question has been brought up before, but has anyone given any more thought to having things shipped ahead?  Does anyone know how customs works with this issue?  My wedding isn't until August, but I'm already getting worried I won't have enough bags/people to lug this stuff down!

Mischaka- Have a fabulous time!! And enjoy it!

 

Ladies- Has anyone heard any reviews or feedback on the Caribbean Trio or Mariachi band? Or which is better? We are thinking of hiring one for our cocktail hour.

    • 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!!
