 I recently asked Pilar this same question and her response was that it can accomodate 60 people plus a dance floor.  My concern here is that past brides have had around 30 guests and said it was rather tight.  I am thinking it is just the design of the area.  Maybe someone else can add their thoughts as well.

I would think 40 people would be good...anything over might be a little tight based on how I remember it looking. Not sure if that helps at all!

Hi There,

 

I am getting married at the pergola and we will have 60-65 guests. We will be using the white tiffany chairs. Do you know how many chairs they fit in each row? I am just trying to figure out how many rows of chairs there will be.

 

Thanks!!

Nicole

Perhaps just printing it in a large picture frame and having it on a table would be a good idea.  The resort can easily set up a little table with a table cloth.  You could also then place your programs on that table.

That's a great idea Trisha. I don't know how I missed your response. I just saw it! :) I was wondering if we could have some sort of table set up near the ceremony location. We could put our programs, and possibly a basket with fans and bubbles! Thanks for your wonderful ideas!

Wedding Dilemma:

 

I am trying to have my wedding at the Pergola for 3 or 4:00pm. I am talking with my travel agent who is emailing Deisy from Jade now. Deisy listed that the Pergola is only available at 6:00pm for the ceremony!

 

Has anyone else ran into this issue? Why so late?!

 

Thanks Jade-ers!!

My best guess is that there is another wedding already scheduled at the Pergold for that time you want

Hi girls!

 

Originally my FI and I chose SMB as our resort for our wedding, but after discussing it several times, we finally decided on NOW Jade due to the location, price and the reviews.  I wanted an affordable resort for all our guests and after reading all the reviews I am so happy with out decision.  

 

We are getting married 11/16/2013.  I know it's a long time from now, but we have other prior engagements that don't allow for a date anytime sooner. 

 

Everyone on here has been super helpful already - I must spend hours on here a day reading reviews and whatnot.  I feel a lot more relaxed about the destination wedding... and thank you in advance for any additional help!

 

 

Thanks!

 

Breanne

I almost forgot and I had to go to Pilar's office to hunt someone down to give the money to!

 

Customs was super easy and they didn't even ask us anything! I was so worried about it and it really was nothing!

Do you mind me asking how much you tipped everyone?

    • 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.
