  1. How did everything go with your wedding?! For the spa, I'm planning on tipping 20% if all goes well. Can any of you give advice on booking group excursions? I am planning to do an atv excursion with about 25 guests and would like to book it in advance, but I'm having a hard time finding places online. I asked, Bianca, my WC, but she said that the hotel does not book excursions and referred me to Connect Travel Services, but they look real expensive for customized/privatized tours and they don't even have atvs on their list of tours. I'm arriving to PPC 5 days before the intended excursion date but am worried that the tour companies may be booked and/or can not accommodate 25 of my guests at the same time. I've been to Punta Cana many times and have been on these excursions, but I can not find any of them online!
  2. Amatos, My wedding is December 6th, 2014. Let me know if you will be there on my wedding weekend for your Love at First Site Visit! Grace
  3. Hi Katrice, How much are you being charged for Pastor Mark Lykins? I've emailed Bianca inquiring about my invoice. I think it's $550 plus a resort fee of $120 plus tax which comes out $737.50. Daramcca, Do you mind me asking where you're flying from? Also, have you picked out your wedding package, decor and centerpieces?
  4. Sorry, I have not yet been in contact with them. But when I do, I'll let you know if I can get some pricing out of them. From reading all these threads, I get the feeling that they charge very high prices for simple things. So before I even get pricing, I plan on bringing a lot of my own decorations and centerpiece items.
  5. Hi Daramcca, How's your planning going along? I just booked last week, so I've got a lot of things to do and decide! I got Bianca as my coordinator...no word from her yet. Right now I'm undecided on my wedding package, but I will most likely go with the Chill Out or Allure package. I'm having a seaside gazebo ceremony at 3pm (4pm was taken by another bride), reception to be determined, and I'm expecting approximately 40 people. I'm having a symbolic Christian ceremony(getting my marriage license in the states before I go to the DR) with Pastor Mark Lykins...I contacted him directly but he told me to coordinate with the resort...I was billed $737.50 for him by the resort, which is much higher than the $350 plus taxes that previous brides in this forum were charged so I'm inquiring about this bill. Good luck JennyAdele! Hope everything goes smoothly! Looking forward to your review when you return!
  6. Thank you all for the helpful information everyone!!! I'm booked for December 6, 2014. Anyone getting married around the same time?
