We just received an email from Pilar- $350.00 surcharge to use outside flowers :(   I think I might use my bouquet in the Divine pkg and get my girls to carry parasols?

I replied to Pilar's email to ask/tell her that was plan, if we only have 2 choices I don't want one to be vegetarian when I know most people won't go for that by choice.

 

Pilar advsied us 2 choices, plus 1 veg option, plus 2 options for children's if that helps....

Also- to the pther poster- Pilar said the menu must be set inadvance, not last-minute, day of event changes....

Also, I thought Jade was one of the cheaper.  We are going with Apple Vacations and they are giving us price reassurance.  We are blocking 10 rooms for a $500 deposit.  Then, that deposit will go to our stay.  All the guests have to do pay a $50 deposit for their room and pay nothing else until 70 days before they leave.  And, we will get the best prices that way.

Hi Ladies,

 

We just got our invoice from Pilar- eek!  Did you know they charge $150.00 just to have a podium at the reception?  $150.00!   Photographer Day pass $65.00 per photographer, so since we are using Photos in Cancun, we have to pay $130.00 for them to come :(   I expected that though.

Also- for those doing a sand ceremony- Pilar will provide it at the resort for $60.00.   To set up the chair bows, $1 per bow.

I bet that you won't pay the day fee for the photographer...mine came 2 days and I didn't pay for either day even though she quoted me that price before I arrived there. I wouldn't stress too much about it!

We also made it part of our wedding website RSVP to select an entree. Most people are pretty used to it from other weddings I think..

I can't remember exactly how many songs I sent him but it might have been around 20.

    • 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!!
