All RiuOR Noon or Earlier Brides...What can we do until 6PM??????

Recommended Posts

I am so happy you were able to get your time changed. I hope that makes your special day even better. For you girls who still have noon ceremonies. there are some great ideas of things you can do. I bet you will be able to make the most of having an early ceremony. Plus you'll get to see your groom earlier. Our ceremony isn't until 4:00, and my FI refuses to see me before I walk down the aisle. I wish I could spend more of our wedding day with him. I think that is a big advatage of having an earlier time.

For those of you who do not like your ceremony times, make sure you follow up with Carolina to make sure ceremony times are actually confirmed. I too had a problem in the beginning and after double checking with Carolina, I was able to get the time that I really wanted. Many people book their dates but never go back to actually confirm their times.

Lizz,

Chandlyn told me in an email that Mammee Bay is available between 12-4. The only con is that it will be buffet vs. a platted meal, but you and your guests will be sectioned off from other guests. Some of my family members offered to fix and serve plates to everyone. I think that was a great idea.

Even though I got a 2 pm slot, I still have a long wait until 6:30. One of my friends used the Riu's Hors D†Ouvres menu to create a menu that included a variety of finger foods, a desert and fruit. I emailed it to Chandlyn to get a pp price. I didn't get a response back yet.

I will do the hors D' Ouvres on the beach for an hour and the 2 hour disco. This will have everything ending at 6. I scheduled the dinner at Mamme Bay for 6:30. I am making it optional and informal. I want those who would like to start enjoying their vacation to do so. I plan on leaving the disco a littler earlier to take a shower and slip into comfortable clothing for dinner.

Hope this idea helps some of you!

Happy planning

Take a sea-taxi and you can cruise in style to places like Dolphin Cove or Reggae Beach. Plan your private charter on any one of four vessels. From fun, snorkel, dinner or sunset cruises. Also speed boat tours to Cuba.

    • 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!!
