The wedding was like in a fairy tale.  Everything went pretty smoothly.  We had 50 people total including 6 children between 2 and 13.

The gazebo in the Divine package DOES include the white linens.  If you want another color, it's an extra cost.

We used DJ Doremixx and sent the deposit via Western Union.  Everything went through and he did a great job. 

We got flowers through Mayan Floral.  Marvin is great w/ communicating.  We got flowers for the gazebo, centerpieces, bridesmaids bouquets and a "kissing ball" for the flower girl.  Arrangements were gorgeous.  He met our friend in the lobby and we kept the flowers in Ramon's office until it was time to set them out for the wedding.  Marvin even came out and arranged the flowers at 4pm and we were not charged the vendor's fee.  We used the resort photographer and videographer.  We're happy with our photos but haven't seen our video yet.  They will be sending it out along with our photo album book. 

 

I spent hours sifting through all the posts on this website and was so grateful for all the feedback. 

If anyone has specific questions feel free to ask!  I would love to help if I can :)

Congratulations!  Can you post some of your wedding pictures taken at the resort?

We asked if tequila terrace was available for our wedding well over a month ago for our reception..she just got back saying "sorry it's not" ummm maybe if you didn't wait for a month it would be lol her lack of communication is making me so frustrated, it's all good though, any one have any other good places to have a reception there? I guess the beach and beach terrace is available...I am pretty easy going and think I will go with the terrace...any pictures of past brides? Any experience? Thanks! I guess it shouldn't matter at all but it just is frustrating bc at the time I booked all the time slots were available for our date...and that's the time we requested the terrace, so I don't know what happened there. Hahaha okay I am over it.

It was far too windy for lit candles even our menu cards couldnt stay up in the holder

I was told by Anel that candles are typically provided by the bride & groom.  She reccomends the electric ones since it can get windy.

I just have little tea lights.  They are more for decoration than to be lit.  Add some colour to the table without a lot of $$. :)  Now to figure out if I can get them through customs or not....

The beach terrace is nice. Just make sure that your wedding isnt on the same night as their beach party night. Specify that you do not want your wedding the same night that the live band and buffet is on the beach trust me you dont want that!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
