I also brought a Bose system for my wedding in October and it was great. We had tested it before we left for sound and we were a bit worried it wouldn't be loud enough but it proved us wrong. We had a private reception too at the Plantation and honestly our guest was dancing throughout dinner and after, lol.

  Can I ask what model Bose you bought and was it loud? We are doing the after dinner party at the beach and do not want to pay for the DJ either! We did find a Mic (Imic) That can be used with your iphone or ipod so that should be good enough. Does anyone know if you are allowed to play low music at the semi private dinner? Thanks!

So update on my fiasco.

 

Got a email back today. Telling me I can have 3 pm but have to have it at the lagoon gazebo. My whole reason for going away is because I want it on the beach! Ugh I almost wanted to cry today because I feel like I will have to pick eithe a earlier time for the beach or a later time and have the lagoon gazebo!

 

I'm still holding out for my time and the beach. I'm a little pissed that all they are saying is we are sorry. How about offering a discount or a upgrade. I have my TA working on it now

 

So frustrating !!

Hey Danielle,

 

I was just thinking...I received an email back from Jan's Flowers with their pricing list and I notice they offer the decorated 4-poster Chuppahs and Arches that they can set up directly on the beach...there is an extra cost for them ($180 and up), but this could be another option for you to still have your wedding on the beach for the date/time that you want if you are unable to get the beach gazebo.  I would think that the resort would still set up the chairs for you for free, and hopefully they have more than one person for the Officiant.  I'm seriously thinking of forfeiting the beach gazebo myself and going with an Arch as the pictures look so beautiful!  Anyway...just a thought;)

    • 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
