You mention bringing the seating plan, but did you know before hand how the tables were going to be set up? It makes a difference if they are tables of 6, 8, 10, round, one long rectangle, etc.
We knew that the tables in the steakhouse sat 4 and that they would be pushed together to create bigger tables. We wanted big square tables (4 smaller tables pushed together) but it didn't happen. They had set them up as long rectangular tables, ours varied from 7 to 10 people per tables. Round tables are not an option, at the steakhouse anyway.

Hi, loved your review. Very informative. How can I see your pics? I m really new at this and I'm not sure where to start? I'am thinking of doing a symbolic ceremony next year in June and will be e-mailing the wedding co-ordinator soon.

Hi RonNMel, I think I read that you were going to have a symbolic ceremony? Any information on that would be really appreciated. I want the symbolic ceremony to look as authentic as poosible.

I'd love to help you, but I don't know that much about it. Here is what I do know:

We will get married here before we leave.

Over there the symbolic ceremony will be performed by Yahimara, the wedding coordinator.

She had giving us the option of doing a RENEWAL of VOWS instead, which would have meant that a lawyer would have performed the ceremony. We still would have gotten legally married here. If you want it to be as authentic as possible, that might be a better option. It's only slightly more expensive than symbolic (100cuc more), and requires much less paper than actually getting married there. I think all you need is your wedding certificate.

 

Hope that helps!

RonNMel, thank yo so much for your repsonse. Yes, that information is very helpful! I will e-mail Yahimara and see what information she can send me. I'm having a diffcult time locating an e-mail address for her. Do you by any chance have it? Again, thank you. This forum is fantastic! I'm so nervous about this hotel because there are a few reviews on trip advisor that are negative. I'm hoping that this forum with ease my nerves about it. It would be great to see some pics of people who've already gotten married there. Anyone have any suggestions on where I can see some? Thanks!

For the reception - was the steakhouse excellent? Or what could you recommend? As far as decorations go - would you suggest bringing your own? Thanks!!!

    • 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.
