OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

I brought all the petals with me.  I had ordered them from a website and to be honest I have no idea which one it was.  But I ordered A LOT of them.  Buy more than you think you need if using for decorating.  Just google "rose petals" and there will be a bunch of sites that pop up :)

I wouldn't say it is necessary. The only thing that I had for the cocktail hour were paper straws with flags with our initials and the wedding date.

Wow! What a great deal! Thank you! Are you going to bring some down for table decor as well?

Can any brides share if they had any form of entertainment at their reception? I know someone earlier on the thread had fire dancers... is anyone else thinking of doing anything unique? My FI and I were contemplating fireworks but the prices seem quite high for the length of show. Not sure if its in the budget quite yet..

Hi ladies,

 

We are booked for Castaways for our reception and we are paying for the extra hour. Has anyone else done this and will they kick us out of the restaurant right at 11:00?

I had my reception at Castaways. I don't really remember this but apparently as soon as the reception was over they were kicking us. My brother in law had asked for some water as the reception was winding down and the waiter or manager or whoever told him no and refused to get him a drink. Like I said, I don't remember this and my brother in law can be a little dramatic, but I do think that they were basically kicked us out once the last song was played.

we had fireworks and it was worth every penny, everyone was so happy and surprised!! It really was beautiful!! The fire dancers they have a show every week, so depending on which day your wedding is, your guests might have already seen it.. I dont have pics of the fireworks now..will post when I get it:)

Oh btw, after u get the basic package for the fireworks..the add ons for cold fireworks at the ceremony are super cheap because you dont have to pay for the permits again...we had 6 cold ones when we kissed at ceremony..its really pretty!!:)

    • 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.
