      Hi & congrats! I just received confirmation for my wedding date for Jan 11th, 2011 and am so excited to start the planning! If you search under wedding reviews you will find some reviews by other Dreams Palm Beach brides (even reviews for Dreams Punta Cana are helpful). I've read a lot of brides used HDC Photography and have been very happy with their photos. I've also read that the resort photographers are great as well but more expensive. I'm going to research both and see which packages I like.

      Have you confirmed which wedding package you are going with?

      Best of luck!

        Hello there,

        I got married at Dreams Palm Beach 2 months ago and have no complaints - you should go under the review section and take a look at my review. If you have any questions please let me know.

              Elizabeth:

              You can read my review on DPB, I got married there a little over 2 months ago. I did not get married at the Gazebo so I don't have any pics but you can also go on Facebook and look at the page under Dreams Palm Beach Brides I think there are some there. Happy planning.

                My niece is looking at DPB for an October, 2011 wedding. Her sister got married at Dreams Puerto Aventuras and it was spectacular. She has to find a different location though, because her sister said Mexico is "her" country

                I helped plan her sister's wedding, so we're trying to come up with an alternative that is beautiful, reasonable for both guests and the bride and pretty much has everything already set up prior to the wedding. Dreams seems to fit that bill.

                If you have your wedding on the beach, is there any sort of pergola or anything that is set up or is it just the table that I see in all the pictures? The gazebo looks nice, but the guests are facing the hotel rooms. I read somewhere that you can have the cocktail hour at the restaurant located near the beach. Is that the case for the reception, as well? Other than the banquet rooms; what other choices for a reception are there? My niece had hers set up in a nice private area of the resort in Mexico. We had about 5 tables and it was really nice. We just danced in the sand to her i-Pod.

                Also, does anyone know what is the best time to visit the Dominican Republic? Would late October still put us in hurricane season? How do the prices for travel go up and down according to off and in seasons?

                Thanks for all your help!!

                  Hello there!

                   

                  There is an Arch you can have /floral arrangement for the Beach that I believe is $400.00, You should also visit the DPB website and look for the wedding guide..There you will find alot of info about what they offer and also the prices.

                  You can have a beach or a indoor reception.
