anyone doing a beach reception and renting "lounge decor"??

Recommended Posts

 We rented lounge decor for our cocktail hour and I loved the way it looked plus I didn't want all my guests just standing around for a hour.  It was going to be available for the whole evening so guests could use it during the reception as well, but it started to rain, alot, and they had to take it back to storage.  I should have some pictures soon!

This is a great question- I've been wondering the same. I wonder also if you rent from an outside company, if the resort charges for you to bring it in for the night. Hope some ladies have answers idea.gif

Yikes that's expensive for 8 people! But I guess that's how these countries get you when you want a DW haha!

We thought it was such a money saver doing a DW, which it definitely is but all the extra fees and decor rentals & item prices are INSANE! Too bad we can't bring furniture with us ;)

Our lounge furniture cost about $500 and that was for seating for 16 plus delivery and set up fees.  Sadly the only pictures of the furniture I have are in a video so I can't post them but they were white couch type things that had pillows in orange and pink to match my colors.  We also had coffee tables done in white with clear glass like tops and small round tables in orange and pink.  Here's a pic with one of the tall orange tables.

I can help Janette (we got married at the same resort!)...

 

We ordered two sets of seating for 8 at 2,500 pesos per set plus a flat rate of 1000 pesos for delivery to the resort and set up (6,000 pesos total or around $430 USD converted today).  We were so glad we did...the resort had a nice area to place them and otherwise I guess our guests would have been up on their feet from 3:30 - 6:30...the chairs used for the ceremony went into the palapa for the reception.  My Dad made a comment that he wished the resort had put more of the lounge furniture out...he didn't realize we had to pay for those!!!  We probably could have used one more set for our group of 32.

    • 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.
