ROR Reception: Poolside vs. Plantation?

Recommended Posts

This is on par with the beach reception (Seagrape). $10 pp for open bar and $5 pp for tables and chairs. I also think the pool will be very pretty!!

not yet, but i will come April 21 2009...im going to have a poolside reception, not the dinner though.....and i will definately take tons of pics...your wedding is way before mine though!!!!!!

 

we thought we would prefer to have a beach reception, but when we just got around to booking it we discovered that it was already booked, so that left us to think about other options......but after thinking about it, a lot of our guests are elder and already have trouble walking on the sand so i guess it worked out best that we couldnt have it on the beach!

I don't think it is too early. Our wedding is mid sept '09 and we already booked our choice. Alot of people get married there and plan early. We didn't get our first choice for the time of our wedding ceremony, so we knew we had to book our reception early! Good luck with your planning!

We have the Poolside booked for Jan. 6/09, we will be there for the entire reception. Dinner, speeches and dancing. We have the DJ already booked to play. We have our own professional photographer as well, we will have loads of pics to share.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
