The mosquito situation is strange. I think it depends on the time of year. We were there the end of August for a week. We had no issues at all for most of the week. Not one single mosquito. My reception was in the Lobster House and nothing.

However the last night we were there we had dinner in the Lobster House and got attacked! Two of our guests stayed a few days after us and it seemed like from that night forward the mosquitoes were horrible. We went prepared for this though so as soon as I put on bug spray it was fine.

The vases weren't on the invoice Jessica gave me, so I reminded her and mentioned that she had told me $4 each and she didn't even question it and added them to the invoice.

I remember someone (or a couple of you) mentioned doing a piñata. What are you putting inside... candy?

 

I'm trying to think of something fun to do during our welcome party. I was thinking about getting a mariachi band, but that's $1100+. I don't care for cigars (or cigar smoke), so the cigar roller would not work well for us. I just emailed Jessica to see if she has any recommendations. I asked about a tequila tasting or the piñata option. Maybe she'll come back with another idea.

 

Anyone else have any ideas or know of other options?

Hi JenniferH114

I am getting my piñata made from a Katy canadian who know lives in Mexico. She has a Facebook page called love and lace wedding decor. I know the candy will cost 15 and the piñata is a grey donkey think Winnie the Pooh , which I prefer to the flashy colours and I think the cost is 35?

@@hapykat - Are you sure they are the exact same vases and not a larger set? I have seen some that are much larger than what I'm getting. The biggest one I'm getting is probably only 10 inches high. Not making excuses for the price difference... Just asking. That does seem crazy.

@HenniferH114 yep! I've basically told her the hotel is trying to take advantage of brides but this boards exposes the discrepancies. In addition, she is changing my whole wedding day time line! I'm so angry!!

Yep she said it was a price increase but really it's gouging! I may as well find a way to bring down my own

@@hapykat - I was checking out the facebook page that you mentioned you got the piñata from. She has vases and jars. I wonder if she might have something you can rent.

 

Thankfully, the vases are the only extra decoration item we are getting from the resort. We are bringing everything else and using what's included in the package. I bought my own chair ribbons for super cheap, burlap table runners, cake decorations, 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.
