Question for all of you dreams brides

Recommended Posts

I am trying to decide between the three packages that dreams offers for weddings. Did most of you choose a package, or did you get the minimum package and then do everything else on your own?

 

I just can't for the life of me figure out which one would be best for us. I've been looking at what's different about each one and the costs and I honestly think that the differences in price don't seem that bad, so I was going to go with the most expensive one, because it includes either the trio or mariachi and obviously a bunch of other stuff.

 

I posted the three choices below, maybe that will help. I'll stop rambling now!

Ann & Tammy, this is probably a dumb question, I'm sure I've seen it somewhere on here, but are you staying at the same place where you are having your weddings?

I am not. My ceremony is at a secluded beach area that isn't affiliated with any hotel/resort. So I have to do that part seperately - which is nice to have that freedom, but it also would have been nice to just stay at the same place you're getting married at!

Great question Jill, not that I have an anwser for it, but I was thinking the same exact thing when I was looking at my resorts wedding packages. I have no clue wich one to pick.

 

Also, is it possible to NOT pick any package and just customize you very own from scratch?

 

Very confusing, I'm eager to see what the Dreams brides have to say about this.

Although we are not getting married in Cancun we went the package route too….i chose the package that offered the beach we wanted and added additional photos and videography….but we did not choose the dinner portion b.c. the party will be small we are just going to a restaurant…now if I had to choose one of yours I would choose Dreams of Love Package…..but all of the packages you listed offer a lot!

the dreams of love package was my original choice, but I really want the mariachi or the trio, so with the cost of that added in, it's almost the same as the ultimate package, which has a couple of other additions as well. Decisions, decisions!

 

I wasn't originally going to do the dinner either, just a cocktail hour and then go to dinner, but when I figured out the price of the cocktail hour, it was going to be almost just as much as the package that included dinner, so I figured why not just do that. I don't know, I'm so awful with making decisions!

We got the cheap package free because we are staying for a week. However, we are adding on stuff like a welcome dinner, more flowers, probably fireworks, etc.

offtopic2.gif sorry but ann your new pic is very cute!

I'm getting married at Dreams in Cabo and I don't think I went with a package because I did all my arrangements with tammy. I think but I'm not sure( hmm I probably should know this... Tammy can you PM me and let me know.) I had no idea which one to pick though either when I was looking good luck!

    • 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
