Iberostar Laguna Azul brides 2013

Recommended Posts

One point that I think should be made is for those of you getting married in 2013, don't get stressed out if the resort does not email you back right away. This is very common and they will never leave anything too late, that certain things get missed. The closer the wedding the more responses you will get. I received an email saying they received my email and gave me a date and time back in March. I have been emailing them since March with little details/questions I had and they just finally got back to me last week.

Couple other things to note, they will require you to photocopy and send by email (all individual emails as their system can only handle up to 1MB per email) a copy of the birth certificate and passport of each the bride and groom, as well as a copy of the passports for 2 witnesses that can sign at the ceremony for you (non relatives). They will also email you 3 or 4 attachements that will need to be filled out and emailed back as well. One is Mandatory Info and has all the info of the bride, groom, their parents and witnesses. Just fill it out by pen and scan and email it back, a general questionairre with questions regarding the dinner, flowers etc, all little things pertaining to the wedding. I will check if I still have these attachments and post them on here as well. Just to have. They may vary by resort but these are the ones they use at ILA. Hope this helps, I will post more info and pictures when I return as a married lady haha, end of Aug, 2012. So Excited!!!

Yes, the one thing I have learned is don't always go by all the reviews. First off some people are never happy, going to Cuba I am def going in with an open mind. I guess its just common sense for the most part. If its repetetive bad review then maybe something to consider. I know how nervous it can make a bride-to-be choosing a resort. I am at the point of no return haha. This resort (ILA) is booked and my wedding is all booked with all guests confirmed (58) and ready to go. I also noticed when brides have returned there isnt much feedback. I promise promise promise I will take notes for you guys, let you know about the good, the bad and the in betweens of everything I can. There was a post on here somewhere from a travel agent herself who got married at this resort and left very handy tips and absolutely loved this place. I am hoping for the same. One last thing to remember we arent there for your typical vacation, I believe the resort will go above and beyond for a wedding and make it as memorable as possible. Not that they shouldnt treat all guests this way but they dont.... Good luck ladies, and wish me luck haha 35 days and counting til I leave, 38 til I become married, YAY! All we can do is make the best of it, really, it is what you make it. Nothing can ruin this day for me, absolutely nothing, besides I have my best friend at my side, what more do I need haha.....

Hi Ladies! 

 

Firstly, Congratulations on your Engagement and upcoming Weddings!  I just wanted to drop by to let you know that I was married at the Iberostar Laguna Azul in May 2011 and I am also a Destination Wedding Specialist/Travel Agent.  I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have on weddings at this beautiful property!   You can find me at kneonakis@travelonly.com or visit us on Facebook at Travelbug by TravelOnly. 

 

Even if you are already booked and just need some suggestions or information from a former bride's perspective I would be more than happy to assist.

 

Happy Planning!

Thanks for getting back to me Kay!! That is an awesome group rate! Fingers crossed you can secure it at that price. I can't wait to hear all about your trip. That would be neat if we were down there at the same time

 

Have lots of fun and travel safe

    • 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.
