Hello DJ Mania,

 

Thank you so much for your feedback. I have so many questions and its hard to relax since I have never been there before. The reviews help me relax some because so far they have been pretty good.  :)

Hey Ladies, 

 

 So my wedding is booked for March 12, 2016 and I'm super excited. We decided to have the wedding on the beach because it's still close to the garden area and nothing better than me being able to be barefoot on the sand. :) I was also thinking of having it at the seaside grill but I do like the garden idea better. Does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to have a pre-wedding bonfire?

Looking at Dreams La Romana for my 2016 summer wedding. Can anyone give me some details about the location and how much different things cost for the wedding...

My travel agent is in the process of pinning down my date - hopefully 7/18/2016. Was hoping since your wedding is coming up in a couple months that you might have some advice/insight for us newbies

Hi, strwbsprkl 

Congrats on getting married.  I am new to this site and am considering Dreams La Romana for my wedding in October or November of 2016.  Not sure if its just me but I was not able to see the pictures you uploaded.  Would you be able to send them directly if its not too much trouble.  I would love to know about your take on the resort now that you have gotten married.

Sorry I never saw this sooner, --I am rmfowler09, but for some reason awhile ago I couldn't log onto that account anymore?? So I do have a new one! ....but we did just have our wedding on October 23rd!! So I can give you some insight and if you have any other questions let me know !!

 

 Yanna & Pirosca were wonderful to work with! We went with the garden gazebo for ceremony, pier for the cocktail hour and sea side grill deck for the reception. We booked when the deck was still $300 but Yanna did say it is now $1000. The beach reception site (free) is a very nice choice and not many people are down by the beach at night so still very private!

 

The two gazebos are both very private, however in regards to the pier, many people do swim and snorkel near it and that might be distracting during the ceremony. We didn't have this issue during the cocktail hour however I watched other weddings during our vacation that were on the pier and people were swimming around them/making noise etc..

 

We had chosen the Ultimate package. In the package it says your hair and make up are included, but what it doesn't say is that a trial of both are included as well...this was a nice suprise for me!! You also get two choices for dinner options for guests and they print out a nice menu for each guest. We had Adventure photography during the ceremony and hired HDC for 4 hours as well. Adventure photography did a great job however they are much more expensive! HDC was wonderful and so glad we chose them for our pictures! We loved how they turned out! The videographer included in the package was great too!! They actually had 2 videographers and one showed up to my room 30 minutes before the ceremony to film getting ready etc, the ceremony and after with pictures, cocktail hour etc. They did a wonderful job editing the video (35-40minutes) and is great to show family members that couldn't make it.

 

We had a group of 25 of us. We did choose to have a dj and so happy we did. We originally wanted the "extra" dj service with more lights, MC etc for $950. Yanna had us go with basic dj service with one speaker/no mc etc and said she would mc. well we saved a lot of money and they had all the lights, extra speakers MC and all! The whole group danced all night and it was a blast!

 

The food at dinner was great! We chose for the entrees the beef tenderloin with shrimp or the salmon. Everyone said they really liked the food. In addition the food at all of the restaurants was wonderful as well. Good drinks too!

 

If anyone has anymore questions feel free to ask! This website helped me so much when planning our wedding :) I am so glad we chose to have a destination wedding and Dreams La Romana was amazing!! :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
