July 2012 Brides

Recommended Posts

That is such a bummer about the staff!!!  We had an incredible time!!  The entertainment staff had our whole wedding party participating in the pool activities and also the nightly stuff.  It was a blast!  We also had great luck with the ceremony on the beach.  Everything was dry and the clouds were starting to part for the sun to come out.  It rained while I was in the spa, but I don't think we had rain once I got dressed and we were doing pictures in the room.  Everyone in the spa was fabulous!  We had champagne and mimosas that morning and all of our hair and make-up was perfect!  It was a very relaxing day, and I don't think there is anything that I would have done differently.  Now, I just can't believe that it is over!  It went by way too quickly!!  I want to be back in paradise just relaxing... :)
Since some of my guests had been to DW before they noticed that we were treated like regular guests. With so much on my mind I didn't even notice until a friend of mine recounted her son's DW. Initially I didn't think about complaining but when my husband also noticed, I knew it was significant. He felt bad because during the wedding planning he reassured me that everything would be great and to have confidence in the professionals there. I'll elaborate in my review, but overall the staff were great, but the Suites spa staff (Camille, Grace, and a few others) were wonderful! I could tell the difference in customer service when I went over to my hair appointment and to book appointments for my guests. I can't believe it's over either. It was an amazing week! As I type right now my husband is saying it was the best wedding ever because in 10 yrs from now we'll have a lot to laugh about! lol. Stay tuned for my review!!

I was in shock at that point and asked if we could wait to see if the rain would pass. Luckily it did and thank goodness I didn't agree when said they were going to set up inside. I felt a little better whenmy sisiters told me they could see the chairs being set up onthe beach. Mind you the legs of the huppa looked like toilet paper was wrapped around them! Very diappointing! I'll write a full review soon.

 

Oh  my goodness that would have been so upsetting - I'm glad you got your beach wedding at least.  How horrible to go all that way only to have it inside.

 

Congrats to all of my fellow July brides :)

    • 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
