Hi! It's Adventure Photos I believe. I have seen some work and I am not too crazy about them.

I gave the guests 3 options: The beef and shrimp, scallops and mahi mahi, and pork medallions. I chose the shrimp and scallops in coconut milk as the appetizer and the lobster bisque but everyone got to pick their entree out of the three above. 
Pilart told me now that only 2 entrees are allowed, unless the 3rd is a vegetarian or gluten free menu item....

Hi Ladies!! Does anyone have any recommendations for photography?? Del Sol was WAY too expensive for my fiance and I and we have a friend who is an amazing photographer who we thought we could fly down but now due to work he may not be able to make it. Any suggestions would be helpful?? Thanks!
We are using Derek Campbell, photosincancun.com Check out his work, it's fantastic!

Is anyone having an informal welcome happy hour?  I want to include this information in my welcome letter (which will be printer prior) and need to include location.  What would you recommend for location? I am thinking Friday at 5:00/5:30? I remember reading that if you mention it to Pilar she may be able to set up some chips and salsa at no charge.
We are having a welcome dinner the night we arrive, we just asked Pilar to reserve a section of the buffet restaurant for us and that was no problem. We plan on giving out our welcome bags there :)

When I sent out my invites I never even asked Pilar how many entrees were allowed, I just assumed that I could pick whatever I wanted from the menu options. She never questioned me or said anything about it when I sent her the list. We also had 3 children so I gave them 2 options from Pilar told me regarding a kids menu.

Hi Girls,

 

We are leaving on Wednesday for our wedding/honeymoon, and I can't seem to get a response from Pilar with the DJ song list from the resort. Would anyone be able to send it to me at jillian.withee@gmail.com?

 

I have to say, I don't know if I just left things too long or was too laid back, but I sent her about twelve questions a month ago and she never answered any of them. Some questions I've asked multiple times (like to confirm we've booked a DJ and to send me the song list), and she hasn't answered them. I'm pretty disappointed, and I hope this all works itself out when we get there. I am really hoping we aren't in for total sticker shock.

 

Thank you to anyone who can help and for all of the info shared here. I would have gone crazy without this board.

Jillian

    • 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.
