TimsWife and Lizzdee-

 

I am a Sandals bride and I totally agree. It's like you have to beg for updates. If it wasn't for the forums I would be so lost on when things were changing. Its like some big secret.. I am ready to see the updates...

Thanks for the update TimsWife2B!!

 

I'm interested in hearing about the flowers!! - We opted to go with Angels Accents real touch flowers so I'm pretty excited about that - it's a MUCH cheaper alternative.

 

 

@Lizzdee - as far as the menus - I finally had my second discussion with Monica this Monday. According to her, they only send out a few menu options in the "sales kit" but there are multiple other options. It's a completely different file and you need to specifically request more options. She sent me that file as well as the complementary rehearsal dinner menu, so let me know if you need it (PM me)

TimsWife thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for updating us with this info!! You saved me 300.00!! I had the white arch booked at 650.00 and I called today.. the weddding department told me it was now 250.00 however when they got Monica on the phone she said it was 350.00 (imagine that) the wedding department gave me a price for a plain arch and not the WHITE arch draped in fabric. Well Ill take the 300.00 reduction!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

I am Sandals bride, but I check here for updated information...thank you ladies!  I had been waiting to hear the price of the white arch.  I'll take that price reduction!  Can't wait to hear about the flowers.  Please post if you have that information.

Hi Ladies!

 

Got some updates yesterday, some of the flower prices have gone down but not all...  the MS27 corsage went from $40 to $30, MS6 (25 roses) is $325, MS16 (15 roses) is $225, MS39 (rose corsage) is $35,  MS2 (10 stems white or magenta orchids) is $195, 5 stems BB magenta or white orchids $100, 3 stems is $65.  MS42 is still $550, MS20 is $250.  Flower girl rose petals ar $55, a round orchid bouquet is $175.

 

Linens & dishes from Seaside serenade alone can be upgraded to any package for $250 per table, if you want the seaside centerpiece that is $75 per table.  The Capiz shell bamboo arch went from $1800 to $500, so that's a huge reduction....

 

I also asked about the flowers from centerpieces on tables...those are the brides to keep not including the vases.  These tables will be set up before the wedding according to my new consultant, and could possibly be used for bridesmaids bouquets if you're on a budget like I am!  I also have the consultant looking into local island flowers, she suggested possible bouquets could be made of Bougainvillia, so I will let you know what she finds out...I think at the very least they would be great as an alternative to rose petals for my flower girl (my daughter).

 

That's all for now girls...happy planning!!  5 days til Spring!!!

Also..I heard that the candy buffet and the lighting options have been reduced as well. The candy buffet is now 300$, and the lighting pkg is $300, instead of 500.

 

Also the arches have been reduced... I'm not sure if people posted this info. If they did, sorry for repeating.. FOR, VIW, Chic & natural arch is now $350, the Seaside is $500, and the IP is still $2000.

 

And..i think the package prices have been reduced as well...FOR $2000, VIW $3000, SS $3200, Chic $3500, IP $3900.

 

Hope this helps....I think the most recent sales kit is dated March 1st, 2011.

    • 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.
