Hi All,

 

I haven't booked the hotel yet or anything. I've fairly certain I'll go with this hotel now and called them yesterday but they don't take 2017 bookings until January of 2016. I was hoping to book it in earlier as I wanted to send out my save the date cards more then a year ahead of time so people can start saving and can book well ahead of time.

 

i'm wondering if I should just send out save the dates with a ballpark date on it (2nd - 9th February 2017 for example) then people can book that week and we'll get married on a day that week.

 

Has anyone else had this issue? 

 

Thanks,

Kat

Hi Trisha,

 

For your outdoor dinner and dance, where did you have the dance?  I heard from another bride that if you have the poolside reception, you have to rent a dance floor somewhere else?

 

We danced on the concrete right next to the pool.  

 

And the weddings that I've photographed at this resort also did the same thing.

I still haven't had confirmation from the resort that they received my "Wedding Wishes" document, so my travel agent is going to try to light a fire under them to get them to acknowledge it. I don't care about any of the minor details, but I would like to know where my dinner and reception will be held!

I've witnessed the same when I stayed there this past June.

Hi again, I received a wedding wish list today from the hotel and noticed it said that it costs $450 dollars to make the pool reception area private? Has any one else has to pay that as well as the drinks per hour? And if so is making the pool reception area private optional or compulsory?

Thanks Ladies

My travel agent finally got them to email me today, they said they had received my "wedding wishes" and sent me a bunch of links to google drive documents, including a new "Wedding wishes" form that now has that fee on it to privatize the reception. Hopefully I won't have to pay it.

@@Maggietron Ugh.  This resort just keeps adding on ridiculous fees... photographer fee, now this...

 

Because the US/Can dollar exchange rate isn't bad enough already...

I'd try to get them to honor the rates that were in place when you got your wedding wish list. Seems unfair they can keep tacking stuff on. Weddings are such a money grab :(

    • 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.
