I used all the free packages for the ceremony and reception. The package includes tablecloths and the white folding chairs.  My coordinator added orange napkins for a pop of color (orange was one of my colors) along with candles on the table at no extra charge! :)

 

Could anyone help me... We are going 4 the pearl shimmer collection for the ceremony but then for the meal I don't rely want to pay a lot for decoration as we are thinking of going away from the hotel for our party. Does anyone know what you get basic? Table and chairs tablecloths etc. Thanks in advance x

Hey fellow Brides! We were just given our official onsite wedding coordinator...Emy...I've seen mixed reviews (horrible and good) and want to see if anyone has had a recent experience dealing with her and your wedding. I don't want to start on the wrong foot by asking to get changed to another one, if she's been better with more recent brides... :unsure:  

 

Thanks!

Ladies! I am having the HARDEST time finding white long sleeve linen shirts at a reasonable price. My biggest problem are the sizes of my groomsmen. I have a size M, L, XL and XXXL! I can't find anywhere that carries the same shirt in all the sizes needed. Have any of you had any luck?

We bought all of our Groomsmen shirts at Moores for buy 1 get 1 free and they came in a multitude of sizes. The salemen work off commission so we were able to negoiate cost as well.

I'm working with Renee and her response time has been very stressful. I understand if it's a tough question or request that it may take some time, but I've waited over two weeks for her to confirm our venue for the reception and I'm going a little crazy. April and May are apparently their busiest times so I'm hoping it gets better come June.

 

I'd give her a chance, it seems like NONE of them are truly amazing so best not to upset them at all.

When is your wedding? I just found out that Renee is mine as well (my wedding is April 2015), and I haven't been contacted by her yet. Did you have to email her first?

Does anyone know what the plated menu options are?

Ooh yes I second this question! I have been wondering the same thing since I'm not sure if I want a buffet or not :)

Most of the plated menus are similar to the buffet menus except there is only one salad or appetizer, soup, entree and dessert option. you also have the option to create your own menu. There are also options that have an additional charge of $40 to $110 per person  (Lobster, Filet Mignon, Shrimp). There is an additional charge to have a plated menu which i can't remember exactly how much it was. (i want to say $25 per person) I think it's a little ridiculous that they try to tack on all these additional charges at an all inclusive resort. :rolleyes: @@KatyM81 & @@shelikespink

Just out of curiosity - who was your coordinator? I also wanted to do colored napkins for a pop of color and had been thinking of purchasing my own to bring, but if they provide them for free that's much better!!

@@KatyM81 No problem! If you want to take a look at the menus give me your email and i'll send it to you.

Thank you! I might take you up on that later if we aren't getting the higher RSVP numbers that we are expecting... :)

We are getting married November 6, 2014 (5 months away!) She emailed me first after the deposit went through. She sent me an email to set up a phone call and it was just a quick introductory to what she'll be doing for you. I had a list of questions ready to go which I found helpful. After that she'll send you a huge email with a bunch of the vendors, moon palace booking info and a bunch of other stuff.

 

I'm hoping the communication will get better as we get closer and out of their busy season - I'll let you know!

    • 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!!
