Getting married 01/07/2015!!!! SO EXCITED!!! We've booked the Gran Porto Real--anyone else looking at this resort???


I've been planning since October and have been anxious to get everything going!! The flights and resort just recently put up their prices so I booked!!! I'm too anxious to wait for anything, so I HAD to get the ball rolling!!!


Here's what I have booked so far--


--resort-- We choose the Gran Master Oceanfront which gives us full access to the Royal across the street as this is their sister resort--adult only!! That way if we need to escape from our guests we can   :wub:


--Wedding package- We are unsure how many guests are attending so we opted for the Classisc Wedding package (they do offer a free one if you have a certain amount of rooms books for a certain amount of nights)... We are upgrading the semi private reception to a private beach reception ($15 pp) and are hiring a DJ for an additional $950.00 which offers a light up dance floor for $750.00--undecided on this still


--flight with seats reserved.. We chose to use Delta Vacation through our TA and they offer a $200 credit to guests and $50 for each ticket booked for the bride and groom.


--photographer (Dean Sanderson http://deansandersonweddings.com/  or https://www.facebook.com/DeanSandersonWeddings ) check him out--his work is fantastic and him and his wife Anna have been a pleasure to work with and very helpful!!


--videographer ( Mike Cantrell http://mikecantarellfilms.com/  he offers two film styles and was referred by Dean and Anna--he has been very helpful and great to work with as well... Great thing is that Dean and him often do work together and will come to the resort as a team so there is only one outside vendor fee of $350.00


Just wanted to share my information!! If there are any other 2015 Riviera Maya brides please share your experiences thus far!! I'd love to be able to ask/answer questions!!!   :D

    • 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!!
