2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Hey girls! My wedding is 13 days away... I'm so excited! I had to tell you (especially those worried about the cost of centerpieces) that while I was in hobby lobby the other day I found a type of fake flower called "real touch". They look & feel so real... I decided to make my bridesmaids bouquets myself!! They also happened to be 50% off! So each of my bouquets cost $12.50 vs. The resorts $80. I also found matching, pre-made boutonnieres in their wedding section that are made with the same real touch flowers! They're $2.99 each. I'll post some pics later, but had to tell you guys so you can check them out. It will be a ton cheaper to make your own & pay for an extra suitcase than it is to buy theirs, or pay the vendor fee for someone else's.

400[/img] Here's one of the BM bouquets I put together. So exciting... I love a good deal! Yeah the his & hers from hobby lobby are great! And if you're not good at making your own, they have per-made bouquets! My wedding is January 26th in the Gazebo. :)

I love those bouquets! Looks like a Hobby Lobby trip is in order this week...

 

Is anyone shipping things down ahead of time? I was told by my WC there is no way to do that. I'm not convinced though. I used to do trade shows for work, and for a fee you could always ship a box or two to the front desk ahead of time... At this rate my suitcases won't have room for clothes!

Any resort would let you do that. I did that when I was on a vacation, let alone this will be your wedding.

    • 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!!
