@@smileitseb Yes! Both site visits (the initial one where we chose the resort and the 2nd 6 months later to meet with the WC and start initial planning) my fiance and I got the reduced rate of $110/person/night. Anyone else traveling with you does not get the rate though. And David is the right person, he'll connect you with reservations.

I am getting married April 29 2015 at Dreams. Is anyone else having their wedding on a Wednesday? If so are they making you do a beach reception as well?

@@hsocorso - We're getting married on April 17th on the beach... it's a Friday...and we chose the beach for the ceremony and chose the deck for our reception.

Did they say why they are "making" you get married on the beach..were the other locations already booked? I assume you aren't too thrilled about any of this?

@pddcmc-They said the only other place is the ballroom but I'm not flying my guests to Mexico to party inside. We can pay an additional cost if we wanted to have it at one of the restaurants. I'd be fine with the beach reception if I was pictures of other receptions on the beach.  

I know it will all work out I just wasn't expecting them to charge for every little thing. And I didn't realize I was so limited on reception options.

What time are you getting married?

@@hsocorso I agree with the ballroom...wouldn't want to be inside. We are getting married on a Monday. Ceremony at the gazebo (4:30), cocktail hour at the pool terrace, and reception at the Seaside Grille. We upgraded to the platinum menu.

 

And yes, nickel and dime for EVERYTHING. I am trying to negotiate a little but they are a wedding factory. I doubt they'll budge. I'm trying to play the...lots of upgrades and lots of guests I'm bringing so you better give me something back...game but I'm no good at it <_<

I'm also getting married on a Wednesday but so far no one has contacted me. They said they would contact me within 3-4 months of my wedding date. However, I did book the ceremony for 4:30pm and reserved the pool deck for 6:00pm. 

 

@@nattiegams325 When you went to the food tasting can you remember what they had for the silver, gold and platinum menu? Is there a big difference? Also are they still flexible about not using the cocktail hour and using that to add to the reception time?

    • 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.
