Overall I was pleased with everything and I was very impressed with the resort. They did lose the hanger that I bought for my dress for pictures but other than that I didn't have any issues (and that was very minor anyways!) Don't stress - everything will turn out great!

 

Thanks! Did you do a TTD session?

Congrats!  I look forward to reading your review once you find time in your newlywed bliss ;)  Just wondering since you didn't bring a lot down with you - did you end up paying a lot for decorations etc through the resort?  Trying to budget for that aspect of the big day and decide on buying here and bringing it down or just going through the resort...

 

Congrats again - can't wait to see pictures!

    I also brought down paper lanterns. The only thing that I paid extra for were chairs (I upgraded to the brown tiffany chairs) and extra boutonnieres. We only had 15 other people with us so I didn't need any extra flowers ( we had the divine package so it came with 1 centerpiece and then we used the 2 flower arrangements that were used during the ceremony as other centerpieces on the table.) I am pretty sure that I should have been charged for some extra things and she didn't charge me. They are very easy to work with! I will try to upload one or 2 pictures today if I can.

Where did you go for your TTD?  I would like to go to a cenote the following day but am not sure which one to go to yet.

    • 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.
