I flew southwest and had no issues there isn't a closet however if you have an empty flight (ours was 22 ppl for 180 capacity) you'll have an overhead for just your dress!!!

 

Hey guys!

 

Any experiences about carrying your dress on the plane?  I am getting nervous about this!

I'm at the fountain and the quiet pool. What time is your ceremony?

I haven't had many issues with communication. I've been working wirh my WC since July of last year. Is there anything I can help answer? I feel like I could work there with everything I've learned the past year :-)

Our ceremony is at 4 pm.

 

What are you doing as far as centerpieces. And Dj? We haven't made up our minds. We booked around the same time. July maybe August.

We are at 5pm at the fountain, so right after you! I'm doing square paper lanterns, votives, and sea glass for the table decor. I am using the hotel DJ, but I hear a lot of good things about DJ mania as well. I'm also bringing in my own officiant for the wedding... I don't know how I feel about the wedding coordinator doing it. I'm rally excited about staying at NOW! I've heard so many good things!

@@Dina821 yes, they are very much on island time and are extremely slow at responding... That drove me crazy the entire two years of planning; however once you arrive at the resort you are catered too!!

@@DR2015 thank you for responding! I see you just got married, did you do a civil or symbolic ceremony? What location did you choose? I have chosen the beach and I am second guessing my decision.

@@Dina821 we chose the symbolic ceremony and did the legal "stuff" at home before we left. We had our ceremony/cocktail hour on the beach at 4-5:45 and reception in the ball room at 6-10...

 

We had already visited the resort two years earlier (along with a few others) which made me decide on the beach location.

 

Why are you 2nd guessing? I can try to provide you with some info!!

@@DR2015 there were some post of brides having their ceremony on the beach and they made statements about onlookers and lacking privacy. So I was second guessing it. We are having the ceremony at 4 and the cocktail hour at 4:30 and then the reception at 7 since we chose the pool location for the ceremony. may I ask what photographer did you use?

@@Dina821 I would agree with lack of privacy but to be honest we had 75 guest so the additional 8-10 that were sitting on the beach didn't bother me personally... They weren't rude or any thing; they complimented and congratulated us and stood to clap after the ceremony.

 

We flew our photographer in with us; we did get the free pics from the resort that come with the package- I was not impressed with the prints or the lady who works there she was extremely rude.

    • 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.
