Let your guests know that if they are interested in the Spa, sometimes its not worth it to book ahead.  You will receive a newsletter in your room every day with the activities going on and "spa specials" for the day.  This is a much cheaper route if you take advantage of it.  The Spa is nice and during the pool games they will give spa prizes (i.e. use of the Hydro Tub).

Ohhh ok! Well shoot I guess I will not book a "group event" then. I was thinking of doing something the morning of the wedding since the wedding is not until 5pm. 

 

Thanks

I would just email your WC and the spa to see if they would offer a group special.  I'm sure they will.  Don't know til you ask.  Plus, if it is a big group, then you want to be assured that they have the time slots available and aren't already booked.

Thanks for sharing Kitty! That video is AWESOME! We are having a separate photographer, but we do get the 15 min video included in our package.  Did you correspond directly with Photosouvenir, or through the wedding coordinator at Excellence to set all of that up?

Hey Diva,

Based on my correspondence with Photosouvenir, they basically are holding the date for me since I told them about my wedding at Excellence and they said I could decide on which package I want when I get there.  I imagine if I were doing a video, I would probably mention that in the initial correspondence since it means an extra person.  FYI, I emailed them through their website and was corresponding with Reno via: photosouvenirsa@hotmail.com  Hope that helps. Saw on another forum you're doing the legal thing first and very soon, how exciting! We actually went back and forth on this and now after spending so much more than expected on other things, I think we're going to do the legal thing here first as well.

Hi Girls!

 

I'm back & now Mrs. Thomas!! We had a WONDERFUL time & I'm hoping to get my review done tommorrow. It figures, we were in nice warm sunny weather all week in the DR & it was freezing when we got home so I've been sick all week long. I've finally got the pro pics uploaded to photobucket so I'm posting a link if anyone wants to go ahead & take a look:

    • 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!!
