SoonMrsD...destinationweddings.com gave me the worst quotes for the rooms!!! Apple Vacations came better on the quotes and I'm waiting for Liberty Travel and Patty from Wright Travel to get back to me. I personally didn't like how the TA from Destinationweddings.com tried to tell me how it's peak season and they're gouging me but that's the price. If he is Dominican, does he have family in DR? If so, have one of them contact the resort from that site and find out the prices in "pesos" not dollars.

Yeah he has some family there. I will get on it. Thank you for the info, I will also look into the companies you just suggested. This is just insane.

How many people are planning to attend your wedding?

Well I'm praying no more than 35 lol! But save the dates went out to 55!!! I'm just frustrated b/c I had the TA info listed on my invites as I wanted to send out the invites in like May so I could give people time to set up payment plans. But I might just take out that information. Ugh i didn't think this was so hard. Planning a destination wedding was supposed to be easier! LOL

We are looking at alot more ha ha...about 100 and that's only family so who knows how many more. We have a lot of close family apparently. Ok so 10 months in advance is a good time to send Save the Dates... yeah when I went to Mexico for a destination wedding the payment plan was perfect! Yeah I picked it for the same reason!

I love that my Fiance and I have a 3 year old, and I want her to help me pick my dress, and I am thinking I will have him walk down with her instead of being the flower girl.

I have 2 children. They will be the only 2 standing up with us at the wedding. I'm thinking my daughter will walk down with my fiance and my son will walk down with me.

    • 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!!
