Still can't figure out why a lot of brides say otherwise. Oh well--just wanted to share our experience! If your on a budget, do not hesitate to use them ;-)

Thats great news, we will be using Adventure Photo's so this has put a smile on my face :-)

We tipped $50 to the wedding coordinator (Pilar) and also to our assistant coordinator (plus tips to the usual service folks you would tip at a wedding).   We weren't sure what was standard to tip coordinators in a package wedding situation and basically made up this amount--hope we didn't err on the low side!

 

Unrelated note--We received our video from the videography included with the divine package and were very, very happy (much better than the photos included with the package).  I think a lot depends on who is working your wedding.  Claudia did our video and was great at capturing details and working with our outside photographer to get some nice shots after the ceremony in between our couples photos.

We tipped Pilar, Deisy, the judge/minister, the waiters from dinner, the DJs, and Darius (bartender at the beach bar) I'm sure you don't have to tip everyone but we did.

Your review was great, thanks for posting.  I was unable to see any of the pictures, but bet they are beautiful.  Did they charge you for the setup of the bows and stuff?  Also, what did they charge you for the DJ if you don't mind me asking?

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
