Iberostar Paraiso Wedding Roll Call

Recommended Posts

I had my hair & makeup done by the resort (did not outsource) and they actually had a lady come in just for me, so it's not even someone that works there everyday, she works at a few resorts. She did an INCREDIBLE job. I was very impressed and relieved. We did the hair trial a few days beforehand  - I brought pictures, explained what my concerns were, and she was very professional and the result was just perfect (I have long wavy hair, so you gotta know what you're doing with it!). Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, but they can probably look it up at the Spa or if you ask Lily (the WC) - my wedding was on November 23rd.

That sounds great. Can't wait to see the pics.

OMG our wedding was amaaaaaaaaaazing!!!! Everything went incredibly well (except for a number of nitpicky things I can name, but don't affect the overall feeling). I cannot say enough how true it is what everyone else on this forum has said about destination weddings: difficult upfront b/c of communication barriers and w/e else... but once you're at the resort you dot the i's and cross the t's and the wedding runs super smooth!!! I'll be writing a more detailed post later on, but any upcoming brides, feel free to ask me specific questions!!!

Cant wait for the pictures too!!

I agree this is an amazing, idea. Definitely would cut down the cost.

How did you pick your venue? Did they give you a detailed program?

What ceremony are you doing?

Hi Scarma,

 

We are getting married on the beach and our reception will be at the Italian Restaraunt.  We originally wanted the outside courtyard area in the shopping center area but we have too many people, so we chose this.  We chose this because we could either choose a menu item for everyone or give choices, we wanted to give meal choices and they had the best.  I've requested more details and I haven't really gotten what I need so I just continue to email.  I did receive my timeline for the day which was most important to me.  My WC is Lily.  We are getting married at home first so we chose the symbolic ceremony with the dreams package.  We wanted to do everything (including the reception) there.  We have 50 traveling with us and 5 that are still unsure.  We just hired DJ Doremixx.  I just received the final paperwork from Lily- I see your wedding is in November so I attached some things to expect that I wish I would have known receiving this (though I'm not sure what kind of ceremony you're having so this may not be necessary for you).  This is the information that I need to fill out for the final details.  Hope this helps.

    • 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.
