I chose the Yellow Room for my reception. I liked it because there is a deck and a beautiful ocean view. I'm so glad to have heard someone has been to the Jade and loved it. That just made my night knowing that it was a beautiful as the pictures and the service was nice. I'm so happy to have more brides join this board so we can plan together!! I was beginning to feel lonely! I'm bummed I also have to wait a year. As far as the menu for dinner goes I haven't picked one yet. I was hoping since we are going to have at least 55 coming that we might be able to do a buffet. We are so simple that it would be great for us and some of our guests are kinda picky! More meat and potatoes people if you know what I mean!!!

I was told by Pillar that only a group of more than 50 can have buffet so you should be fine to go with that option. I chose the pergola for the wedding, blue beach bar for the cocktails and so far the pergola for dinner also. i never really got a good picture of the yellow room. It was very blurry and dark and i couldn't see outside. Could you send me a pic of the yellow room. I am getting married April 26th so i will be able to give you some feedback after my wedding that will hopefully help with the last minute planning. I'll be sure to take alot of pics. Does anyone know the name of the photographer that the resort is using?

they use a guy named Fernando at Positive Photos. Here is the website:

I have chosen to bring my own photographer. I found it difficult to change or up grade from the 20 photos.

Are you girls using a travel agent or doing everything right through the hotel? I have been using a TA...which has been great...but I feel like you all have more information than me. I do have Pilar's email so I wonder if I should be contacting her directly. For the girls with 2011 weddings, have you already talked to Pilar about budgets and swapping certain things in the packages for others??

I'm using a local travel agent to help me with my travel stuff. She got some really good rates. Unfortunately the airfare isn't out yet for June travel so I'm having to wait on that but Apple Vacations is having a great deal now you might want to talk to your TA about. After searching I found that I was getting a MUCH better deal thru my TA then thru booking at the hotel.

 

Lisadias- Give me your email and I will send you all the pictures that I have.

I have a TA as well but she is only handeling the hotel and air bookings. I stated my comunication with Pilar through my TA but Pilar wanted to deal directly with the bride because there are so many little details you need to work out and going through the third person is tuff. My wedding is Fed 2011 and I have given the deposit to the hotel so I deffinetly have the date and wedding location reserved, now its just time to choose all the little details. I want to start counting down the days but its well over 200 lol

Can I ask what your group rate per night was? We are waiting to hear back from our TA but I'm so anxious! We visited the resort and LOVED it but everything is kind of riding on the group rate.

We aren't really getting a group rate just a deal on free rooms. Have your TA ask about the promo with Apple. I don't know what it's called I just know for every so many rooms booked you get one free. Check into it :) I don't know if it's still going on but it's worth a shot.

    • 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.
