Good to know! That's money that can be spent elsewhere,,,,I feel like why pay extra when drinks are included in everyones package?

So I know we have had this discussion before, but you can pick not just one entree for the dinner? I guess I didn't understand what people meant. Sounded like you needed to have a seating chart if you have different entrees. Can you have two or three entrees? I might email Anel and see what she says. We have some picky eaters as well. 

 

Thanks

You should let me know what she tells you- I was also wondering about this. The way I took it was that as long as you have some sort of seating chart or way to distinguish who picked what meal ahead of time then you can pick 2.

Hi Rani, 

 

Anel was very specific with me about this: You can definitely offer two entrees to your guests, as long as you give Anel advanced notice and, more importantly, your seating chart and place cards should identify the entree selection of each guest. She suggested color-coding, for example: Vegetarian entress' place cards - Green.

I have a question for those of you farther along in the planning or those who have already had their wedding...If you could give us one or two pieces of advice on planning a destination wedding, what would it be? What has worked well for you and what have you stressed about that you wish you wouldn't have?

You can pick up to 2 entree choices but you must tell the resort at your wedding appointment what each guest will have & also have their place cards marked in some way.  Our place cards had a small flower on them (teal: beef, orange: shrimp)

Be patient...they do not reposnd as quickly as we do in the US...be patient they will get back to you:-)

 

Our music was a huge stress..but our playlists worked our perfectly & the sound teh & system were worth it.

 

One bit of advice if you choose the sound system route is have someone in your group MC parts of the reception: first dance, cake cutting, etc.

    • 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.
