Hi lovely ladies,

 

I am considering the Now Sapphire, would love to hear your thoughts. We are going to have around 120 guests and want outdoor ceremony and reception.

So anyone who has been married or seen these locations in person i'd love to hear your opinion on this.

 

We used the Bamboo Room for our reception and there were only 15-17 of us. It felt a little empty, only because we didn't have a dance floor/dancing. I loved the privacy though, and happy we stuck with it.

Hi Micaela....I am getting married at the Now Sapphire in March of 2012.   I have had a great plannig experience so far with the wedding planner at the resort, Sandra, and the other ladies on this forum.  You shuld also check out the ' Paradisus Riviera Brides ' thread.  Paradisus is what the Now Sapphire used to be called so the thread hasn't changed it's name but there is a lot of useful information on there from past and present Now Sapphire brides!  :-)

 

I am planning on having only approx. 25 - 30 guests.  Our ceremony is on the beach and our reception is on the Ocean Terrace (in between the pool and the beach).  I chose the Divine Wedding package.  Happy Planning!  :-)

Thanks ladies!  That helps a lot.

 

My next challenge is figuring out how to get everything I've bought down there.  You guys didn't have any issues with customs?

I got my hair done at noon for a 6:30 ceremony.  I know that sounds kinda crazy, but it worked perfectly.  I wanted to have time to get ready with my bridesmaids and not be rushed and I wanted to do a first look and take lots of pics before the ceremony.  It took exactly 2 hours for my hair and makeup.

 

If you don't plan on any pictures before the ceremony, you probably could get your hair done at 2:00 or 2:30 or so and be on time!

    • 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.
