I just had my wedding this past week, March 28, 2012.  It was beautiful.  I will try to post a full review and pictures by the end of the week.  I'm so happy I chose this resort.  I was a little worried at first, but everything was amazing.  The Royal next door was even more beautiful (very high-end), but very quiet.  It seemed like there were mostly couples hanging out there.  The Gran Caribe seemed like it was a little more fun and there weren't too many spring breakers there which I was worried about.  The older people attending the wedding had just as much fun as the younger people.  My only regret is not booking my hair/make-up appointment earlier.  My appointment was at 1pm.  I finished around 3pm.  My wedding started at 4pm at the gazebo.  I had under an hour to get dressed, and didn't get anytime for pictures before the ceremony.  I was very happy with my hair and make-up too.  I didn't bring a picture of what I wanted and they still did a great job.  I had clip in hair extensions put in and my fake eyelashes looked real.  It was very windy and my half up hairstyle looked pretty messy by the time we were done with the ceremony and photos.  I would recommend getting the presidential suite.  It was unbelievable!!  It covered the entire end of the 6th floor, there were 6 rooms below our suite so that should tell you how large it is.  We had our cocktail reception right in the room because we had only 12 guests.  They even brought a blender up to make mixed drinks and had food set up on the large balcony.  There were several staff members up there serving everyone and making drinks.  I couldn't have asked for a better wedding.

Does anyone know about an equipment rental fee if you bring your own DJ? I have a friend that DJ's from NY that will be attending, but he obviously won't be traveling with his own setup...

    • 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!!
