I second doing the trial... I think it was definitely worth it. I loved my hair and makeup, but I got it done on the Casitas side.

Did you all schedule your hair and makeup trial and day of before you got there? I read a post somewhere saying it was better to do so when you get there…but it made me a little nervous!

Yes, I had everything scheduled through our WC prior to our arrival to ensure I got the days/times that I wanted for both my trial and on the day of. I bumped my day of appointment back and hour, and I'm so glad I did that - we would have been extra, extra late!!

Definitely schedule it through your WC. Ours stated she scheduled my mom's and MIL's also, then when we got there she hadn't. As such they had a hard time finding appointments for them, and they had to get theirs done on the Royale side instead of the Casita with me.

great thanks ladies! AllieH, would you mind taking a picture of the white gazebo area to capture how windy it is if possible? :)

I feel it depends on the season and the month, it was not super windy just a nice ocean breeze( it felt really nice for us) when we got married there on 4/30/12. So I think you are getting married in a nice hot season that it should hopefully not be that windy, but it always depends on the day and weather,but don't let that stop you from what you really want. We had a wonderful day with perfect weather and nothing went wrong at all, we felt we were given the 5 star treatment. So do what makes you happy and what you dream of it.

I never did a hair or makeup trail and had no issues with my hair. I just showed them a picture of what I wanted and it worked out well. The only part i did not like was when she did my makeup at first but she totally fixed that and it looked alot better, but if you are nervous i say go for it, if it helps eases you. I just was not someone who wanted to spend the extra money on a trail run, but to each it's own. :)

    • 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.
