Hi Everyone,

 

I'm new to this site and still trying to navigate around to learn more.  My FI and I are planning to be married at the Royal Decameron, Panama, in November 2014.  We are still very early into the planning and waiting to hear back from the travel agent with the prices, etc.  This is both of our 2nd time getting married but still want our wedding to be very special.  I'm a bit of a control freak so this destination wedding thing is a little hard for me as it seems from what I'm reading you don't really get a lot of the little details worked out until the week before the wedding or even a couple of days before the wedding.  Any advice that can be offered as to help plan in advance would be greatly appreciated.  Are there any other brides getting married in Panama or know of anyone who has?

My travel agent still haven't gotten any quotes yet or even wedding information from my resort...I know its still quite a ways away as we aren't going until November 2014 but I was hoping to at least see the different wedding packages offered or something.  Can anyone answer how many months before your dates did you get your quotes?

Who is your travel agent? My travel agent with Vacations For Less is awesome and always replies to me quickly. You are quite a ways away BUT that doesn't matter because this is the time when you have to make all your important decisions + budget out your wedding. Time will fly you by! Trust me. If someone isn't getting back to you send a friendly reminder and if that doesn't work MOVE ON. Kind of harsh but it's important for you to have all this info early on.

Thanks for your reply Melissa14...my agent is great she touches base with me at least every other day and lets me know that she hasn't heard anything from the resort yet...I am trusting her that she is being honest with me..I hope she is.  I did find an email for the resort yesterday through google so I've sent them an email as well and haven't heard anything yet but its only been one day.  You are so right now is the time when I'm trying to budget and see what I need to come up with...its so frustrating when I can't move forward.  It really doesn't sit well with me because I'm such a control freak..haha.

    • 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.
