    Hi everyone - this is my very first post. My fiance and I have just decided on a destination wedding and plan to travel to Dreams PC in June 2012. I'm working with a travel agent but would love to hear some first hand experiences from some of you who have been there! Here are some of my questions and I'm so sorry there are a lot but ANY advice would be SO SO appreciated:


    -What area is the "best place" to get married/have the reception? I've heard the Bordeaux? Do they have to be in the same place?


    -Did anyone get married in the US before they went to avoid having the extra cost of the civil ceremony/translating things?


    -Did anyone use the DJ? What was he like? Did you choose a song list or just let them choose? Was it necessary to have the dance floor and the whole nine yards?


    -Did anyone just bring their own iPod docking station and do it that way?


    -How were the pictures/video that came along with the package? 


    -How did hair and makeup go at the spa???


    -was the "ultimate package" worth it? I beleive we are going to end up with about 40 people or so, give or take a few.


    -What about "after" the ceremony? My family and friends are partiers and we'd all want to keep the party going afterward...is there a club/bar open late night?


    Thank you so much for your time,

      Welcome to the forum.  I am also relatively new, but most of your questions can be answered in the Dreams Punta Cana Brides site.  I know that a lot of people had great things to say about site.  The reception depends on how many people you are expecting for your wedding.  Bordeaux looks great but if you are having over 40 ppl then it would be too small.  They also have a disco at the resort, which is our "after party" once the reception is over.


      We are planning on getting married in the US before so that we can just have a symbolic ceremony.  It's less hassle than to have a translator and it's cheaper.  We do not intend to tell our family about getting married before.


      A couple of brides used a DJ or an Ipod.  DJ mannia, who i am booking for my wedding, has RAVE reviews.  He is all over this site. 

      Just look around in the Dreams Punta Cana Brides.  That is where i found a LOT of my questions answered.  You will find it helpful also.


      I hope this helps.

        From my experience, most of my clients do sign all the legal paperwork in the own countries to avoid the hassle.  If you are ok with all that and extra waiting time,then perhaps just do this in the country you are getting married at. Perhaps get a wedding planner as they'll be able to assist you with that.

          Thank you so much for the reply! I have read a little about DJ Mannia, but how does one go about booking him specifcally? Or, is he the only dj used by Dreams Punta Cana? Do you mind by any chance if I ask how much he costs and what exactly that cost includes? I'll take a look in Dreams Punta Cana Brides, like you said - I was there before but just found it a little difficult navigating through every single post to find stuff; I'm still getting the hang of this stuff :) Again, thank you so much for taking the time to reply! (ps - how many ppl are you having at ur wedding??)

            I'm also getting married at Dreams Punta Cana.  Our wedding is scheduled for May 21, 2011, and we're also using DJ Mannia.  I'm hoping he's a good as everyone says :)  I emailed his site directly, but both the response from them as well as from the Dreams resort is that we can reserve him through the resort when you get there right before the wedding.  Allegedly DJ Mannia isn't one person, but a whole company/association of DJs, so supposedly booking them last minute when you get there for the wedding isn't a problem.  Hope this helps!
