OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

I tipped everyone who did anything for us that worked for the resort, the mix bar bartender the servers at the reception, wedding coordinator, hair and make up stylist. I didn't tip the resort photographer, but only because I forgot all my cash in the room because we did a trash the dress session.

 

We had a wedding of about 20 ppl, I gave Carmen 50, each server and the bartender 20, hair dresser 20. I believe that some other members of my wedding party also tipped them more, like my dad and father in law

That was in American dollars

Sweet! Thanks! That helps! I was going to set aside envelopes and have my MO give them out at the end of the night or when ever we would last see them.... I was thinking 100$ (american) each but wasnt sure if that was way too much or not enough LOL. I never know how much to tip...

Hey ladies!! I just got the spa price list and just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the prices have gone up from what this thread says. An up do for short hair is $65 and long hair is $75 and make up application is $65. Might help with budgeting and what not!

And my uncle, who is a minister and going to be marrying us just sent us the first draft of our ceremony....whoa! I think I need to read it a few times so I'm not crying like a baby on the big day!! And we just picked up our marriage license yesterday! Things are really coming together now!!

Do you still have a copy of the spa price list?

 

 

How do I make an appointment for my hair and makeup?

I was very pleased with my hair and makeup. They don't speak much English but if you bring pictures I'm sure they can match about anything. They do hair all day long and I think they know what they are doing. Of course there will be the occasional makeup touch up to perfect it just as you like.

    • 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.
