I was going to bring my own lanterns but it just didn`t happen prior to leaving for Mexico.  I had told Pilar I was bringing them so she asked for them to set up, I told her not to worry about it since it wasn`t a priority but Pilar was able to get some and surprised me by adding them to the Bamboo Room for us.  You can see from this picture we had about 9-10 and it looked great! They were in 2 or 3 different sizes but I`m not sure what the dimensions were.  The room is beautiful so it will look great with or with out lanterns tho :) LL
It looks great! Did you use up lighting in the room or is that the lighting that is already in the room!

There was 17 of us total. We had one long table but you can definitely more than 17 on one side with seperate tables. I also brought paper lanterns; I believe I brought 30. They were a mix of all different sizes.

No up lighting - just used what they have plus luminaries for centerpiece decor (that's what you see glowing on the tables).  Plus we had a FAB photographer to capture shots like this!!

Shannon, 

 

Did you have a welcome dinner? If so were you able to select the buffet location? 

 

Were there activities that you and your guests participated in? I believe I saw an excerpt referring to cigar rolling, zumba and other day classes. Is this true?

Hey ladies! It's been a while since my last post but I was wondering where everyone was going for their honeymoon after now jade if they were planning on it? My FI and I definitely want to move to another resort to honeymoon alone for a few days but not sure where to go. Anyone have any god spots to honeymoon at? Thanks!

We did not do a welcome dinner. We did a "Welcome Cocktail", meet and greet type thing the evening before the wedding. We just all met in the lobby bar. Just a chance for everyone to get to meet each other before the wedding. We put this in our brochure, something along the lines of "After dinner, join us in the lobby bar for some cocktails and to mingle and get to know each other." Something like that.. I wanted to be sure to put the "after dinner" line so people knew there would be no food. We also took this opportunity to hand out our welcome bags. 

 

I didn't have any activities organized for our guest. Everyone did their own thing during the day. A bunch of us were at the pool often and did do Zumba and water arobeics, wine tasting too. All the activities are listed in the Sun Dial they give you daily. They always have something going on at the pool. Water polo, water balloon fights, beach volleyball, pool volleyball. There's always something!

    • 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.
