  1. Hi. It's been a while since I've been back on this site but since I was scrolling through I noticed this topic. Just a note to future brides, much of the marriage license will greatly depend on your coordinator as you already know. My husband and I got married in PC in 11/30/13 and we had our license in hand by the end of the year. I will say a huge part of that is the fact that our coordinator Carolina at GPPC was adamant that we scan/ send her preliminary documents BEFORE sending copies via post. Why? Because there were some things that weren't done correctly. She sent us back to the
  2. Hi. I would take a look at the 2013 Grand Palladium Brides and seach Grand Palladium Brides because there is a lot of info and it'll give you some ideas. If you have specific questions please feel free to IM me. Congratulations!! You're going to love it!
  3. Hm, I hope I can answer some of these questions. I just wrote a journal about my experience this past November. Feel free to PM me if you have any additional questions. So lets start with the first one my answers are in blue... 1.How long is the ceremony? (I am doing civil) The Civil Ceremony itself lasts roughly 15 minutes however I asked Carolina about reading some additional words (it was roughly one page of typed print) so that it could get our parents involved AND we could perform a sand ceremony. This was allowed but it could not interrupt (no actions could be in between) the o
  4. Interesting you had this situation. I was told from the beginning with a Civil Ceremony it really depends on the judge schedule. We completed all of the paperwork necessary in order for us to get married there and the WC at GPPC reviewed it and said it looked good. Meanwhile we scanned the information and when we got there the judge showed up, we had our wedding, signed our name, got our witnesses and were so thankful everything turned out okay. I'm not sure what else you can do to speed up the time though as that wasn't my experience
  5. *Cross Posting* Well we are back from the wedding! Everything turned out perfectly although I was stressed out the entire time and only realized (once I arrived) that I had nothing to worry about. Carolina and Kenia are the best at what they do and are super professional at making your wedding perfect! Hopefully I cover everything in the review and if I haven't - feel free to shoot me a message. GPPC & Renovations: The biggest thing I 'noticed' were the renovations that were going on at the hotel. They are a bit behind with the building of the new villas but it doesn't really in

  7. Hello! We are actually meeting with our photographers at 10AM on Thursday. Hm, is there another time that works for you. I am actually leaving for the Dominican Republic in about 5 minutes but please feel free to email me. I will PM you.
  8. We are leaving for PC today and we're getting married Saturday! It's been a long time coming and I'm hoping everything goes smoothly (from the flight from Newark all the way to having no rain and a sunny day on Saturday). Thanks for all of your advice and tips and I will let you know how it goes!
  9. My wedding is coming up next Saturday (11/30) and we booked with HDC Photo. Arnaud mentioned that we would be having Miljan and Charly and we will be meeting with them prior to the event. We have heard great things so we're interested in meeting them to get their perspective for the phtotoshoots. I will say I've heard Arnaud and Milan/Miljan's name float around a bit but haven't heard of Charly. Anyone had any experiences with Charly? Thanks in advance.
  10. My wedding is next Saturday (11/30) and we have hired DJ Mannia through our coordinator Carolina. We've heard great things and are looking forward to meeting with you prior to our ceremony on Saturday (hopefully that is possible - instead of doing it right before the reception). It's our first time to DR and we are very excited!!
  11. Your pictures look beautiful!! Thank you so much for posting your review! When you first arrived was everything set up for you at check in? Where did you stay within GPPC? Did you find that the restaurants were packed due to the renovations going on? What are your thoughts on that? I'm leaving for PC in 3 days and am so nervous and feel as if Im forgetting something. Also I know you were mentioning the weather but I can't help to notice that everyday has been showing rain. That's seriously freaking me out. Did you meet with DJ Mannia prior to the reception? We are in the process of bringing An
  12. Hmmm, interesting. I am hoping and praying that they have more restaurants available when we arrive next week.
  13. Hi eberry!!! Thanks for the information...so you're saying all of the restaurants are open all over the resort? Carolina mentioned that she is changing our private reception dinner location due to the restaurant renovations. She has us at La Uva and I haven't heard too many stellar reviews about the place. Am I missing something? We are having a private reception and I was confused because you're saying the restaurants are open but she is saying that she hopes that the restaurants will be done with renovations and open by the 30th (our wedding day). What am I missing? Has anyone gotten the sam
  14. Just found this on the active thread: Woot Woot!! Another November 2013 Bride here! I am leaving in two weeks and we are getting married at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana on November 30th, 2013!
