  1. Hi ladies! Can you all post your short wedding dresses and/or if you are changing into a shorter more comfortable dress for the reception, post that too! I searched and have not seen a post like this yet. THANKS
  2. Hi everyone! I got married in Punta Cana in 2011 and used this site on a daily basis to get tons of helpful info. Now I am researching info for my girlfriend who is having a destination wedding next year, and am wondering if this exists? I am looking for a site that gives me wedding package pricing for a big chunk of the DR resorts. All in one place, instead of going from one hotel website to another which is more time consuming. I know in the past I did my comparison by going to all the different hotel sites, but if there is a site that lists the package pricing info for several resorts and allows a quicker comparison, I'd love to know if it exists and where! Thanks ahead of time for your input!
  3. Thanks ladies! However I was thinking more like pricing and details on the wedding package (ceremony, decoration, reception, food, etc) for each hotel. I know some hotels provide this data on their sites, but not all. But if there was one place that had this info for many or all Punta Cana hotels, that would be sweet!
  4. Hi acw, I am in the US, but I would be interested in looking at the Canadian pricing to convert the pricing and get a general idea. Thanks!!
  5. So I had the magnets designed by a graphic designer I found online. I created the letter with the starfish background and pasted the letters onto the colorful cards that I already had from Papyrus I wanted to keep it colorful and vibrant!!!
  6. hi brides!!! Thank you all so much for your reviews on this resort, I am 90% close to choosing this resort and already have a date of July 22, 2011 reserved with the wedding coordinator Carolina. However, I still have questions about the reception dinner and cocktail hour options and would appreciate all the brides feedback that have been married here. Waiting to hear back from the coordinator can take days and it would be great to start finalizing some details. Here are my questions: 1- Cocktail hour, options and prices (type of alcohol) 2- Reception dinner: is la Uva restaurant my only option if I want a private reception dinner? what exactly does semi-private dinner mean? Please send feedback for both options: semi-private and private dinners including type of drinks included. 3- my FI and I including our guests want to dance! I want a more traditional bride/groom intro and first dance. What are the options for SPACE for dancing at the restaurants? I know the beach party has a dance floor set up for an additional cost, but do the restaurants offer space for dancing? 4- Finally, is la Uva restaurant enclosed? are any restaurants semi-outdoors? Looking forward to some feedback and thank you in advance!!!

  8. Hi kris2012, I got married at the GP in July and got my hair done there along with my mom, mother-in-law and 2 bridesmaids. First tip I can give you is to check and see how many stylists they have now and whether or not the A/C is working. Unfortunately I had the awful luck that the A/C was not working on the morning/early afternoon of my appointment!! AND there is only ONE stylist. yes, just one. I would e-mail Carolina now or closer to your wedding to see what the situation is with stylists because if it wasn't for me getting to the salon at 12 noon for my 5pm wedding ceremony, who know whether I would have had the chance to get my hair done! I have medium length curly hair that was blown dry and styled and just imagine going through that when it is already 90+ degrees inside! NOT one of the best moments for me at the Palladium, I wish Carolina could have given me a heads up in that regard! Oh and yes it is pricey, I paid about $125-50 for my hair to be washed, dried and styled. The rest of the wedding party also were charged 100+. If you have any other questions about anything, shoot me an email!! Roxana
  9. Hi torilynnsmith, Yes I was also sorry to have this bad experience after having such high hopes for his ceremonies, but was very disappointed. He definitely books more than 1 wedding per day at least in my experience! Have fun in your planning and congrats on your engagement
  10. hi LP, Before my wedding I visited the Iberostar in Punta Cana while staying at the Grand Palladium. The taxi ride was about 15-20 long, I feel that most of the resorts are all about 10-20 min from each other in Punta Cana. I can e-mail you this google map I created while planning my wedding that pinpointed ALOT of resorts in Punta Cana, PM me and I can send it!

  15. HI ladies, congrats on your wedding planning!! I had Pastor York do our ceremony on July 22 at the Grand Palladium in Punta Cana and overall my husband and I as well as my guests were NOT pleased with the service he provided. First, we had booked him for a 4pm ceremony and a week or two before the wedding, he asks if he can change our time to 5pm. Fine, we were okay with moving it to one hour later and were flexible to accomodate him. The ceremony which was supposed to be at least 30 min. long was cut short to about 10-15 min! The pastor was late according to my husband and the guests waiting at the ceremony and when I asked my coordinator, this is why I was not picked up at my room to go to the ceremony site which was scheduled for 5pm. So I remember getting picked up AFTER 5pm to go to the ceremony (this resort is quite large so a little cart needed to pick me up and take me to the ceremony). I finally arrive there (we were moving at a turtle's pace because the cart was not large enough and were were squeezed in, another delay). So while my husband is waiting for us to arrive as we are on our way, the Pastor told my husband that he would have to cut the ceremony short because he had another wedding to go to! He was upset that I was late when he was late in the first place! Since I was in such a state of happiness walking down the aisle and during the ceremony, I remember noting that he cut out the readings and went straight for the vows and ring exchanges, but the anger over this didn't sink in until after. Overall the whole thing was about 10-15 min tops and once it was over he disappeared. Some guests even commented to us that he was cursing while waiting for me to arrive and start the ceremony! This to me was unacceptable. Brides, as a warning, please make sure you check how many weddings he has for the day because he seems to overbook himself which risks your ceremony being CUT dramatically short. Do you want to take that risk? We even accomodated his time change. Overall our whole wedding was beautiful and this did not ruin the day but I would have loved to have a more heartfelt and longer ceremony. We were NOT PLEASED with Pastor York and would not recommend him.

    Everyone seemed to like the lanyards but to be honest I got little feedback about them, more feedback about the actual holders! The lanyards for me were convenient because you can just wear them around your neck.
