Does Dreams just provide you with a minister, does this guy/gal know what to say, do we meet them first? Anyone know?
I had the same questions and emailed him. He said he normally contacts you a month before the ceremony so things are more "real time" rather than months in advance. So I just left it at that figuring I had time to figure out what I wanted in our ceremony.

Also, Yaria told me this guy is American so everything is in English for the Symbolic ceremony. He is a minister as opposed to a judge required for the legal ceremony.

Oh good than maybe I wont bother him and get some other stuff done until about a month out from the wedding.

Hi everyone....

I am new here. I have enjoyed your posts since I am going to be getting married at Dreams July 12, 2008! I am very excited! I booked the room

already and sent out my invites, have the dress. But don't have all of the other essentials like photographer, videographer, florist, welcome gifts, center pieces, etc.

I read on the Dreams site that they have photographers for $350 per hour. Juan Carlos Tapia is $3,000 for four hours which is pretty darn steep but he is good. Has anyone here seen the websites for the Dreams photographers? Does anyone have a videographer? Or know how much they run?

I know that one of the packages includes a videographer for the ceremony, but the way things are looking, my fiance and I are going to have to do stuff a la carte because there are so many things in the package that I don't need like hair/makeup, dressing assistant, spanish trio. Those packages are confusing to me, but I do want to make sure that I get some perks since we will be staying there for 11 days!

My travel agent happens to be a true angel and she is taking all of my questions and taking a visit to Dreams to talk to Yesica next week, so hopefully that will calm me down a bit!!

Anyway, glad to be on here. I am positive it's going to help once the date grows nearer and nearer!

All the best,

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
