I don't disagree I was just trying to ease everyone's minds. This site was so helpful for me when I wasn't getting answers directly form Pilar. She would always answer just sometimes it took awhile to hear a response, which is when this site became very helpful. I wasn't trying to say you don't deserve a response just trying to help future brides since I was going through the same thing when I was planning my wedding. Sorry if I offended you.

Thanks!

eek.  If it were me and I was a week away, I'd probably try to find some other way to contact her (phone/skype?)  I know everyone says not to worry and everything works out, but the Type A in me can't be satisfied with that- not at a week out.  I guess it also depends on what you want confirmed, if it's the currency thing, then past brides are more than able to answer your questions :)

That's what I struggle with too, bringing over larger items...we decided against it, and will see what we can find in Playa once we get there.  From what I read, you can buy almost anything in town, so maybe worthwhile to just wait and hope you can find something?

I can't speak for the vendors or storefronts, but when we went to PV, we left US dollar bills for tips at the resort and all the staff seemed to love them!

Have any past brides used paper lanterns to hang from the ceiling in the Bamboo Room, such as below?  Any recommendations on sizing and # of lanterns would be great! My colours are champagne and teal, so I was thinking of doing white and two shades of teal/turquose....

 

Thanks Ladies!

I didn't have my reception in the bamboo room but I know that I got my numbers from a girl who did. I had 30 paper lanterns in sizes ranging from 8-10 inches to 18-20 inches. Hope that helps!

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to take out my frustration on you.  I have had emails from Pilar unanswered after a month.  Only I after I resent them to her did I get a response.  

 

And things she told my mom on the phone were the opposite of what she told me in an email. 

 

Luckily I am not worried about details, I know it is beautiful place and everything will be great.  If I could just get my mother to adopt my philosophy the stress would be gone.

Hey ladies


I am getting married in 10 days at Now Jade and I need a little advice. I had two menu options the  Beef steak or the Tuna Steak. I have printed off two different menus. How does a person get the guests to go to the correct seat at the table where the menu they chose should be. Do you have a table with pieces of paper that have their names on them and what table they are at. Then from there put each name on each place setting. That seems a little ridiculous but I don't know how ettiqueite says to do it when there are multiple menu choices. I would like the servers to have some clues as to which meal goes to who without asking them. I am sure if they had to ask them half the people would not remember what they wrote down. 

 

I too have been trying to get ahold of Pilar I havent talked to her since I booked the package. Since everyone says it will all just come together in the end I have been trying to leave her alone. I requested a DJ but never got a confirmation what so ever. I would like to atleast be able to have the DJ's email address to requests specific songs.

    • 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.
