@@mam9p8 You are getting married the month after me!  We chose the Excellence because we got engaged there in November and loved the resort.  I had reached out to the Excellence directly for a group rate before I reached out to my TA. The resort's group rate for the standard room was the same as on the website but the group discounts were better for the upgrades (e.g a swim-up room was only $10 more rather than $50 more). My TA was able to get a better group rate on the standard room and then match the resorts group rates for the upgraded rooms. We didn't look at any other resorts so I can't give you a good comparison.

I would not have survived pictures with my (long) hair down. It was very windy and, of course, hot. We had to keep tucking my veil under my arm a bit to stop it from flying around. Otherwise, the weather was perfect.

I'm curious about this too. The back of my dress has really pretty lace so I will probably wear it up but I kinda prefer my hair down. I was thinking of seeing how windy it is when I'm there and making a last minute decision. Are you wearing a veil? I haven't decided yet.

I always envisioned my hair down, but after we decided on Mexico I knew I would have to put my hair up and I am so glad I did!  It was super windy and the humidity would have wrecked havoc on my hair.  In half the pictures my husband looks like he has a mo-hawk from the wind.  I am really glad I put it up because I didn't worry about it or fuss with it all night long!

@@Sabes44, i'm with you. That'll probably be what iwill do so i don't have to worry about it. haha

 

@kjb0528 I think so! I wasn't really sure at first but when i put my dress up she put a cathedral veil on me which i definitely didn't think i wanted until i saw it on. I am buying some of those weights for the veil that they make.  figured if it was a long veil i could step on it if it starts blowing too much. haha

 

I'm looking for something to wear in my hair though whether that be a fresh flower or some sort of clip or comb so when i take the veil out i still have something..

 

You girls all look so pretty in your dresses (i keep looking back at past posts!)

@@victoriasalv the same happened to me with the cathedral veil! My dress doesn't have any sort of train at all which was the only thing I didn't like. The long veil made it look more bridal, but I haven't decided for sure yet. I was looking at real touch flowers for my hair as one flower for your hair at the resort is around $40 I think and not sure how well it would last through the night.

We picked a date!!!! WOO HOO!!!! 2/25/17!!!

 

It being a Saturday, it doesn't seem like the Lobster House will be an option based on the past posts I read.  I like Los Olas but am worried about the additional light rental.  Are you brides still getting a $220 price quote?

Hey Ladies!

 

So happy I found this forum, and some awesome ERC brides!! I have 6 months left, time is flying!! Have you ladies decided on a photographer? I was looking at the packages the resort offers, and it seems expensive... I've been on the fence as to what I should do....

    • 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.
