Good luck!! I am excited to hear how it goes. My family and friends are really happy that we booked this resort, I hope it lives up to the expectations.

Could anyone please send me the measurements for the chair bows?  I am thinking about making my own and bringing them down with me as opposed to renting them.

 

If anyone also has the measurements for the table runners for the circular tables, I would love to hear from you!  Thanks in advance!  Please email me at meaghen_russell@hotmail.com or respond to this messaged directly.

hello brides!

we have 72 guests booked - the resort just notified me today that they think the bamboo room may be too small for that many people. this concerns me, especially because they always knew how many people we were going to be having, and failed to mention this to us until now. so thats another piece of the story anyways.

have any of had that many people in the bamboo room and it was fine? does anyone have pictures of the bamboo room so i can get a better idea?

 

thanks!

Hi again,

 

Did anyone use an outside vendor for hair and makeup?  If so, did the resort charge you twice for the vendor fee - once when the stylist came in for the bridal trial, and again when they came back for the wedding day? 

 

Thanks,

Meaghen

Speaking of hairstylist and makeup artist...how would the people from the resort know if the hairstylist was a vendor ($300) or a guest of someone in your group? The latter would only require a day pass which is about $100.

 

Some vendors would have a hard time being discrete like a photographer or DJ. I'm thinking a makeup artist or hairstylist can pack a beach tote and appear to be a guest for the day.

Hey! We just had our wedding last Thursday and are actually still here at the resort. It is amazing!!

We had a group of 80 in the Bamboo Room and it was awesome!! It was intimate but not at all cramped! The head table was along the bamboo wall and I had 7 tables in a semi circle around the sides. We also hired DJ Discomovil who was set up in the back corner and then a bar was set up in another corner. The middle was left for the dance floor and it was the perfect amount of space for 80 people. We didn't stop dancing until midnight!!

 

As for the serving staff requesting money....we never had any issues at all!! Everyone was so great! I will post some pics once we are home.

    • 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.
