I just wanted to give an update... Jessica told me that the chef said they can make the cake I requested (vanilla cake with lemon filling and coconut frosting). :)

 

Don't be afraid to ask for things even if you don't see what you want on their lists!

@@JenniferH114 @@Sabes44 - It's almost May! Are you both stoked? I was looking at more pics yesterday. One year from Wednesday will be mine. I can't believe it's a year away but I know it'll fly by. You both are going to have a blast!

 

I requested the pamphlet from Jessica. So I got some of the cake pics you mentioned! Thanks again for lettign me know about this.

 

Where are you all having your cocktail hour? She requested the beach and sent me a few pics of tables set up.

@victoriasalv - Yes, we are pretty much all set (except I still can't stop buying things!!) and very excited. I'm going to pack up everything we are bringing for the wedding this weekend so I can see where we are at in terms of luggage. In my mind, we are just two weeks away, since I know the Monday and Tuesday before we leave will be a blur with everything that will have to be done (e.g. double checking everything, packing clothes/personal items, getting nails done, etc.).

 

We are doing a beach ceremony, cocktail hour on the pier and reception at Las Olas.

@victoriasalv We are almost ready. Just had my bachelorette party this weekend, which was a much needed break after moving the week prior.  WE just have to finalize the music and finish up the DYI details.  But feeling good about everything!  After this weekend I am getting really excited and feeling more bridal, its all getting very real!

 

@jenniferH114-when do you guys leave?


We are doing a beach ceremony, cocktail hour at X Lounge and our reception at Las Olas too.  I am excited to see someone else doing their reception there, I just thought it was the most perfect, organic spot for what we wanted.

@Sabes44 - We leave in the morning on Wednesday, May 13th. I completely agree with you regarding Las Olas. I couldn't imagine our reception being anywhere else on the property (for what we were looking for).

@Sabes44 - We leave on May 23rd! I'm sure we'll share stories/reviews when we both return. I'm feeling pretty good about everything at this point. Jessica has been really great since the start, which is a huge help. Though I am a big planner and I can get a little uptight about certain things, I have been prepping myself for a "go with the flow" mentality. lol.
 

PS:  Are you getting the complimentary Love Birds spa package? If so, don't forget to book it. Although, I'm not sure if you really have to book it in advance, but I just did ours last week. :)

@@JenniferH114 Yes, I am sure we will have plenty of reviews and stories!  Jessica has been great and I plan events for a living and she hasn't gotten too tired of me being 100 steps ahead lol.  I am giving myself a cut off to get everything done (just the extra "cute" stuff) and if I don't have it all done by then, no one will miss it or even know it didn't get done (except myself!).  So I am doing the same go with the flow attitude, easier said then done, but I am getting better!

 

Yes, we booked our massage and I can't wait for it!  They said they only book them at 7pm each day, did you get the same response?

    • 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.
