I would be hesitant to try your own speakers or set-up, but otherwise wouldn't worry about it.
Thanks! We are planning on using their set up. I just hope it is loud enough. I apprecaite your feedback!!

We had a large table with about 16 around it, a smaller round table with 8-10 and a long narrow table with 10-12...

Nice ambiance and a little more intimate than the other choice... BUT, food was much better at Las Fuentes... Not sure what we would do if we had to make the choice again. May depend on what size group you have. If it's a but smaller, there's a sort of back room that they could put you in.

PM me your email and I'll try to send you some pics after the weekend.

Just got back from my wedding at EDR and it was AMAZING. I should have my review up in a few days but if anyone is considering this resort DO IT!!! I could not be more happy! If anyone has any questions, let me know.

 

We used the IPOD at Tuscanes and was very happy we did. You could definitely hear the music. We had our free welcome dinner at Fuentes. We had 3 long tables. The food is much better here that Cocotal but the ambiance is probaly more private at Cocotal.

 

BTW greta photos Elizabeth!

Despite everyone saying Fuentes is better for food, we are going with El Cocotal.

I hope its okay.

Now I cant decide between creme brulee or french style apple pie for dessert!

Help!

We had chocolate mousse cake for our dessert at El Cocotal (yummy). However, I did have their creme brulee on another night, and it was jasmine creme brulee. It was different tasting (good but different) and the sugar was not very hard on top. I love love love crem brulee, and if you are purist, you will not really like it if this is the flavor they serve.

I found that the ice cream at EDR was insanely good. It's definately homemade. Does the french style apple pie come with ice cream? If so, pick that!!!!

EDR has a great speaker set up. When we were there, there was a reception at the white gazebo and we could hear the music all the way by the candelight dinner area, which is pretty far away.

Not the creme brulee!!! It was the worst we had on the resort. I don't know if we got a bad batch or what, but it was almost greenish and not sweet at all. Ew!!!

Good to know!

Sticking with the apple pie!!! :)

 

Only a few weeks to go!!!!!

 

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

 

I really wish I knew how the tables would be at El Cocotal for the dinner - there are some people who CANT sit next to eachother, so I want to do a seating chart, but the resort keeps saying they decide the day of. So I am making about 20 different "scenarios" for seating! hahahaha!

 

ALSO! This is ticking me off

if you dont PAY to do EDR's Sand Ceremony (always about money right) they wont do it for you. I WISH I KNEW THIS before buying all my sand ceremoney stuff. So now I need to write my own sand ceremoney and I dont know how it will be performed and or by whom!

ANNOYING!

    • 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!!
