Cake was  made by Gran Caribe Real Resort (I brought my own wedding topper). There's also a picture of the menu. All the food was good, especially the sea food soup. That was so yummy. If I could change things, I would of added some vegetables to the main course. 

Thanks for sharing your pictures Monicamb!!! I love your wedding topper! where did you get it? Are the flowers at the chapel from Maya Floral as well??

Hello everyone! First, I want to say thank you for all of your suggestions and feedback, it has helped a great deal!! My FI and I are looking to get married June 2014, and we would like to have pictures with the ocean in the background and still be able to have pictures during sunset. I am concerned about timing as our agent is suggesting 6pm as it is a cooler time of the day and she said the ceremony only lasts about 25-30 minutes. Does anyone have any feedback regarding this timing of the ceremony? Thank you!!

I had a catholic ceremony at the chapel at 4pm with the harpist and resort videographer, then a private cocktail hour and reception at the albatros terrace following the ceremony. I had DJ Doremixx and Sascha Gluck was my photographer. (everything else was through the resort or I brought myself) My wedding coordinators were Katia and Elizabeth. We had about 30 guests (half staying at the Gran Caribe and half staying at The Royal). Everything turned out perfect for me! It was the wedding of my dreams!! Let me know if you have any questions! Happy planning :)

 

Hello:  I am plainning my wedding at the Gran Caribe Real next year in August, 2014:worried2:.  I'm so happy that I found this website to help me with my fears and fustrations..it's been overwhelming for me...  I'm a family of 5 and 3 kids so I need a resort that it was family oriented.  I spoke with Katia (wedding coordinator) and so far she has been very help. But, if you dont mind can you please give me some info from you would be very help for me.  So far the reviews I read has giving me a piece of mind.  This was the only place I requested information from and within 1 hour I received a phone call from Katia which I truly thought it was amazing.  I sent so many wedding proposals from Punta Cana etc and never got a response so quick like Gran Caribe Real coodinator.  Can you please send me your experience it will help me tremendously....:-

 

Thank you so much!!!

At least you have a choice to stay at the Royal...How about when you have kids and cant stay at the Royal and have no choice but to stay at the GC.  Is very depressing...:'( but it was the only place that the wedding coordinator contacted me immediately.  The prices was not to beat any other resort.  I was happy but then reading the negative reviews I got very discouraged...

Hi!

 

I'd like to ask if you picked your own songs for the harpist to play, or did they have a song list you have to pick from? 

 

Cheers!

    • 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
