  1. OMG I am so happy that it all worked out well. I am a nervous wreck. I am still debating on the wedding favors so I have not ordered them yet. you mentions the OOT bags, was that something that you took yourself or something that they provided. your photos looked wonderful
  2. greetings, congrats on your wedding. We are getting married there on May 23, 2011, so I am bit nervous. How was it. Do you have any pictures that you would be able to share. Please tell me all about it. I am excited and scared at the same time. shavon
  3. Hello, Â Thank you for that information. I have been keeping my emails as well because Magnoilia and someone else change up on me sometimes. In the beginning they said they can do the three tier cake, but now they changed up. I am wanting to probably get some decorations from somewhere for center pieces because they said that it will be extra to get centerpieces. I live in Northern VA by fairfax. As for the bouquets, is it here or in DR, where you will pick it up? Also what website did you see the sash or should I just go to a fabric store and get it. My colors is Horizon which is almost like a royal Blue, so I am hoping that something comes close to it. As for the DJ, I read the other girls information so I may see what he is talking about. My fiance's fam lives in Santo Domingo so she told me to let her know if I needed anything. I wish they understood that although they are wedding planners we still want to be involved, you are right, who can afford to wait until three days before to add/drop. I really have a budget that we are trying to stay in because as you know your regular bills have to be paid regardless. The favors i will get from favorwarehouse.com, they are really reasonable and that will be it. Did you get the discounted room price from them. Everyday its a different price too but I think the group rate we have is cool so I won't complain.
  4. OMG, I am so happy that you had a good time, my wedding is May 23, 2011 and I was just panicking on making sure that everything goes right. How was the cake? Did the Dj play all kinds of music or did you tell him what you wanted, I was actually looking for an MC to introduce us but they said they did not have that. But please share with me the music selections. My fiance is dominican and I am trinidadian but we want some rap/r&b as well. You sound great and i am even more amped up because I was stressing out. I have about 100 invited and 50 booked already. Did you get any room discounts? I really cant wait to see your photos. I was also trying to narrow down to the photo guy as well. I can't wait to see your photos!!!!!! I did want the Gazebo wedding and I have already requested the steakhouse so I AM HAPPY!!! Thank you so much for making me feel at ease. Â shavon
  5. Quiyana, Â I guess everytime they respond it it the same answer and they tell me one thing then switch it up. If you don't mind me asking what package are you getting. I am getting the caprice package and i could have swore someone told me that they will provide a 2-3 tier cake. now they are switching it up but I am just going to see what else i can do to spice it up. i also wanted an MC so i may get one from the outside. See I just want to budget everything out early so i know what i am working with. I thought that it was one wedding a day. I hope that all will be good when we get there. i guess i just want it to be as good as it can but not being there until the day comes is really scarry for me. Thanks for the reply!!!
  6. I am planning my wedding and i feel like the hotel is not getting back to me with correct information, they have been generating the same responses to my questions and myquestions are still unanswered. Then when you tell them how you feel they make it seem like you just need to take it or leave it. I am sure that they know how to handle weddings but I also would like to see pictures, cakes, etc so i will know what to expect. It is still my only day and i don't want any surprises when the day comes and then become upset. I really don't think that they understand that planning a destination wedding is really hard and stressful because your hand is not in the pot. They don't have a problem telling you that everything is extra but it just seems like this lady that i am dealing with is just like "whatever" with any information that I need. Please if there is anything that anyone else has on Weddings at RIU Punta CANA Palace please send it to me. I am getting the caprice package and I just want to know how any felt during this process and how did it work out.
  7. I am just so excited and nervous about planning a wedding from afar. Please send me information or photos if you have any information about this place. Â Thank you all and Congrats to everyone
  8. Congrats!!!! I am also booked for the RIU Punta Cana Palace for 05/23/2011. I am hoping all goes well since I am nervous about planning a wedding from afar. The pictures that someone posted with the cakes steakhouse, etc was very helpful because the WC did not send me any of those pictures. They send me the pictures of the wedding area and two pictures of cakes. I must admit they definetly don't get back to you in a timely fashion at times, but they had the best package especially for the numbers that will be coming. We have about 100 invited 45 already booked and more coming. Please send me anything that you feel will/can be useful. I am still waiting for them to get back to me about a couple of things but I am happy that i see alot of people going with this hotel.  Good luck and God bless  Shavon Phinizy
