I bet if you made a thread in a better section you would get more detailed responses. Such as the Caribbean-Dominican Republic Section. Hope you find the answers you're looking for and Welcome to the Forum!

1.  When you are reserving your locations for ceremony and reception i keep getting told this is on a first come first serve basis.  Does this mean when i send in my deposit, my locations are reserved or can i not claim them until i arrive?


2. I was told they have up to 3 weddings per day here.  Does this become chaotic or competitive?  is there a better day to get married (sunday, friday) to avoid mulitple weddings on the same day?


3.  Have any of you had a band play at your reception?  I see they offer a "rock band" and a "10 piece band" but that is not very descriptive :)






Check out the Dreams Punta Cana thread - you will find it very helpful.  I got married at Dreams Punta Cana almost a month ago.  There are basically two locations for weddings - the beach or the gazebo.  FI and I knew right away we wanted a beach wedding, so we requested the beach right away - it is an extra cost to get married at the beach ($300) - but for me, was worth it.  There are a number of terraces at Dreams Punta Cana - each that can accomodate different amount of people, so you have to have a ballpark number on how many people you are expecting to attend.  My WC send me photos and gave me a recommendation based on my numbers and I took her suggestion and booked the terrace she told me to...I was not disappointed.


I don't think that you can avoid multiple weddings on a certain date..that may be hard since you are not aware of what the other WC's are up to and not sure how many brides may be asking for that date.  Locations are booked on a first come first serve basis.  I suggest trying to sort that out sooner as opposed to later, so you have the spot you want.


There are 3 WC's at the resort and can have up to 3 weddings a day - each bride has her own WC.  I did not at all find it competitive and was so wrapped up in my own, that I barely noticed anyone else getting married on the date that I did.  Once your date is confirmed you can start getting your locations organized and reserved, I did this via email with the WC.


I had all the music that I needed for the reception on my IPod and made my own play list for the reception - and I rented the stereo system - which is perfect and loud enough.  The WC played music that she had for the ceremony - I walked down the beach to 'somewhere over the rainbow" I loved it.  WC also had music to play for the reception that she offered to play, which I totally forgot about and it was perfect.


Check out the thread Dreams Punta Cana Brides - you will find tons of info there.


I would not have changed anything about my wedding.  I loved the resort and all of my guests loved the resort and we had 43 people.


Happy planning!!!

    • 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.
