So Tammy, for the ceremony part I assume it was more romantic music and then more festive for the cocktail party? Did you hire them for 1.5 hrs?

Hi Tammy,

Elvis here...Ashley and I are hiring a violin/guitar duo for our ceremony. We're still working out the details but we only plan on hiring them for one hour. We figure the actual ceremony will last no more than 30 minutes and that should give them enough time to play while people are seated. Then we'll have a dj play the cocktail hour and beyond.

For the duo I've been corresponding with Violetta Poletek. The website is Los Cabos Wedding Entertainment - The best live Los Cabos wedding music available in Baja California Sur, Mexico !. She has been completely responsive and very flexible and willing to work with us. You can listen to samples on her site. She sounds very very talented.

I am still trying to work out this whole vendor (day pass or no day pass) policy with Yarai, but hopefully that will get resolved soon. Once we figure that out we're going to book her.

If you have any further questions just PM me.

Cheers,

Elvis

FYI for anyone that cares...

 

Yarai told me that the speaker system on the beach is super hidden and that you can't see it at all, but that you can definitely hear it for both the beach ceremony and the beach cocktail hour. So I think we decided to go with that. FI is really picky about music and he wants definite input into what songs are playing for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. I just see it as more work for us (more on our playlist!) but whatever! It will be nice to have it a bit more personalized I guess...

But what about before the ceremony, will it just be silent then? I was thinking I should have the trio there like 15 mins before to play for people while they wait....I have no clue!
I hired a mariachi group to play 15 mins before the ceremony and about 30 mins into the cocktail hour. Then DJ Mijares is going to take over and play the guitar.

they are going to implement an outside vendor policy. it is because dreams wants to maintain a certain level of excellence regarding their weddings. it is really hard to do that if they have to work with vendors that they have never worked with or do not have the best reputation. what they are going to do is have a "preferred vendor list". to have your vendor get on that list, they need to contact the dreams wedding dept. and fill out the necessary forms, qualify etc. they will also be told the procedures at the resort, etc.

those vendors that do not want to be on the "preferred vendor list" will have to pay a fee. this is because it does take extra effort and man-power to work with a vendor that is not familiar with the resort.
Tammy, Yesika has not told me about any fee for outside vendors. When is this effective?

    • 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.
