Dreams Palm Beach Brides 2012 - w/pics

Recommended Posts



I had to email them twice. They're hard to track down especially now that it's wedding season for them. Stick with it!

Hello All,

 

I really enjoyed reading the threads on regarding Dream Palm Beach Brides (this new one and the old one) and congratulations to all the brides & grooms to be out there :-). We visited Dominican Republic a few times and heard nothing but good things about Dreams Palm Beach. We confirmed with our WC about a week ago (deposit accepted and all) for April 12th, 2012 at 5:30pm. Does anyone know of a good photographer in the area, or have any leads on a good photographer?? Right now, we are just going back and forth with sales department on trying to get a group rate on our guest.

 

Thanks All,

Vee

Hello All -

 

First of let me say congrats to all brides to be and that I really enjoy the thread (very insightful). I confirmed my date for April 14th, 2012 and have been working with WC Mercy Aquino. I'm so excited, but kind of on the fence with ceremony being in gazebo or beach? Gazebo gives you a little bit of privacy but the views of the ocean are just amazing. Question: Has anyone been in talks or book a photographer?? Any suggestion on one?

 

Thanks

Hello Everyone!

 

Congrats to all the Brides to Be!!  I am so glad that I found this forum!  My fiance and I decided to move our wedding up 6 months so instead of having ayear to plan I only have 6 months...  We've already booked our stay at Dreams Palm Beach thru our travel agent.  She told me to fax them the dates to reserve our date for January 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm.  I sent it about a week ago and no one has yet to email me back.  I was really torn between the gazebo wedding or a beach wedding but after looking at some of the photos, I'm definitely sold on the beach wedding.  I know some of you ladies were looking at booking HDC as the photographer... have any of you confirmed as if so how much do they charge?  and do they do a "Trash the Dress" session?

 

Is anyone from Canada also getting married there or does anyone know of anyone who has gotten married in DR from Canada?  Someone from the resort told us that we have to send our documents to Texas to get translated in Spanish.  I called Vital Statistics as I wanted to know if Canada and specifically Manitoba would consider a Marriage Certificate in Spanish vaild.  They told me that I have to go and spending more money on translating the documents back to English...Total Cash GRAB if you ask me.  Anyways does anyone know of any place in Canada that can translate it into Spanish?

 

Can anyone comment on the Resort itself?  I unfortunately went onto trip advisor after I booked thru my travel agent and I saw some disturbing pictures of mold in the bathrooms and stuff.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all those pictures were before the renos.  Anyone else concerned about it as well?

Hey - I have been on a Med cruise for the past 2 weeks (which was AMAZING) I got my confirmation from DPB while I was away.... for April 20th at 3pm!! So excited - now the fun begins!! I have spoken to Mercy a few times by email but my WC is Luz Franco...not sure if this is a man or woman...lol.

We have chosen to go with the garden gazebo as my future hubby will be in his kilt and we both hate sand in our shoes!!

Hi Ladies,

Has anyone heard anything about streaming live video of DPB weddings for at home friends and family?  I know on the website, they said that they were heading in that direction, but nothing yet.  Does anybody have any inside track on this one?
Thanks!
Melissa

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
