Congrats and welcome! There are definitely threads here for Dreams resorts in several places. I would recommend putting whatever locations you want to look at in the search bar at the top and you'll come up with multiple threads. Also, spend some time reading through them. Most questions that have been asked about the most popular resorts have been answered in the threads!

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Hi! I am also looking to have my wedding at Dreams La Romana.  Have you booked your date already? If so how was the process?

I did book for Monday July 11th. The process was pretty easy but thankfully I had my travel agent doing everything because it was taking forever for the wedding coordinator to get back with me so she contacted her person at the resort.

Yea same issue I was having. Are you planning on doing a site visit? I think a site visit is out of my budget but Im finding it so hard to have all of my questions answered without visiting. Guess I just have to let go a little lol

No a site visit is out of our budget. My travel agent has been to the resort several times so I've been asking her a lot of questions and she's been great as in trying to get people there to answer. Usually when she cc's a certain person the wedding person responds within 24hrs. Is there any questions I could help answer??

Oh that is great! Thank you so much. I was curious about the resort food and the airport ride from Punta Cana. I hear it's long but since they built a new highway I wonder if it's a smoother ride. Also how are the preferred club rooms? I see they are in the newer buildings and have they're own pool. Are the ceremony and reception locations private? They look that way. I know Dreams Riviera Cancun wasn't always private.

Thank you again and sorry for my 100 and 1 questions. In terms of wedding specifics are you thinking of using outside vendors? For DJ, makeup, photography and decorations? I saw in some older wedding posts brides have used outside vendors for chairs and got a better rate. Hope this is still allowed and only need to pay the outside vendor fee. Sorry again for all of my questions and thank you again. So nice to have answers from someone who's been there. You're travel agent is golden!

From my understanding since the new highway it is only about a 45 minute ride from the airport.  

Food - she said was good but she also said she wasn't a picky eater.   I've been to other AI resorts and she said the food at Dreams was way better than what I was eating at the others... so we are happy about that.  Also the no reservation thing is awesome!

Not sure how the preferred club rooms are - I think they are basically really similar to the other room, but with a couple added perks.   They are newer buildings and they have their own pool and their own breakfast restaurant (I think that's right...sorry if it's not)

Are the Ceremony locations are private... the beach location is on the preferred side away from the rest of the resort's beach area, so it is pretty private.  The garden gazebo - I don't know about that, but it seems like it would be pretty private.   The pier Gazebo - It's private as in meaning its away from other people...but people can still see you from the beach, and my concern here is the trampoline thing that's in the ocean seems to be pretty close to that so if kids are playing on it during your ceremony then ??? 

Reception locations - only free locations are the beach and the garden (this goes for ceremony as well).   I'm still unclear as of where they set up the beach reception - so I don't know there.

I was thinking of using an outside vendor for photography, but that's about it.  I'm not sure how much the outside vender fees are or if it's allowed still... Still trying to figure these things out.   My best friend is a hair stylist and will be doing everyone's hair and makeup.  As far as DJ... my wedding is going to be pretty small so I don't know if a DJ would be needed?  (SO many things to figure out!)  

 

I saw past brides do a bonfire and a fire show type of thing, and I thought that would be fun to do after our dinner reception.   But again I don't know costs, and we are really trying to stay under $6000 for everything (flights and hotel included) Which is going to be tight.

Thank you so much for your answers! Huge huge help. Yes there are so many little things to think about. I really want to do Dreams La Romana so I can take photos at Altos De Chavon. I've googled it and it looks amazing but I'm not sure how the cost of an extra photography day will work. I would love a bonfire but I hear you on the budget part I'm only trying to include things I absolutely need. Thank you again for your help

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
