Does anyone have pics of a reception at Oregano they'd be willing to share with me?

 

We are expecting between 45-55 guests and will be having a DJ/Dance floor. Planning on ceremony at the beach gazebo, cocktail at Las Olas and thinking about Oregano for ceremony (Lobster house, our first choice, is not available as an option for us).

 

Any thoughts, tips, etc about this plan would be greatly appreciated (especially pics!)

 

Thank you!

@@roamfree when is your wedding? Mine is in January and I'm having my reception at oreganos also with approx 40-50 people. I'll have Picts for you after that but I've also been looking for Picts of the setup and can't find any!

@@kjb0528 My wedding is in June, 2017. I will be waiting to see those pics!!! :) 

It looks like it will be a great spot for the reception based on the limited photos (non-wedding) I could find online, plus I like the location right next to the beach.  But I am wondering about capacity, table arrangement and privacy.

What decisions have you made about the venue so far? Will you be getting lights, etc for Oregano? I assume additional lighting would not be needed if it's already a restaurant...

Where are you doing your ceremony & cocktail hour?

I'm wondering all those things too! I've gotten a little frustrated with the the resort taking so long to respond to emails so I've kind of given up contacting them about layout or space (or anything else). I am nervous about space for dinner + dance floor + dj. I'm going to bring my own string lights down at the very least for ambience. Ceremony is at the beach gazebo and cocktail is at las olas. I'll try to take good notes for you on the space come January!

Hi All!

 

I am new to the forum and currently planning my wedding at the ERC in August 2017.  I was wondering if anyone had any additional photos they were able to share (have looked back in the thread to see what has been posted recently) taken by the resort photographer? I am debating about using them or an outside vendor, but the $500 fee for another vendor seems expensive. Some of the photos I have seen by the resort photographer look amazing, and some I really don't like. Any more photos or experiences to share? Thanks! :)

Ladies (and rare Gentlemen) who used maracas as favors- where did you get them from?  I've tried a couple sources that I found on the board but they no longer do them.  Also, how long of a lead time do they need to get to the resort?

 

Thanks for your help!  107 days!!!

I can't remember exactly - because it was May 2015... sad face!!! - but I think it was about $600 for 35 maracas and the papel picado.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
