Married or going to be married at Grand Palladium Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

My fiancé and I are getting married at the Grand Palladium Resort and Spa in Punta Cana D.R in 2009. We actually went on vacation there last year and loved it! I have found some pictures and reviews of weddings that have taken place there but I would love to find someone on the forum who has gotten married there, just so I can ask some specific questions.

 

Any tips or info let me know!

Hi Cynthia,

My fiance and I are also considering Grand Palladium Punta Cana for our wedding in 2009. We stayed there from Nov 28 to Dec 6 2007 and loved it, but I did not see any weddings and at the time didn't think that I would be getting engaged and planning a wedding anytime soon !!!! Darn, I could have enquired more when I was there. So here's a holler out to anyone, everyone, please reply if you have been married at this resort, help us out wih any info.

Cynthia, do you have an address for the wedding coordinator in order to get ANY information on prices, locations for weddings, reserving a date etc? Could you please send me the pics/reviews you already have?

Thanks, Julie

Hey Julie,

 

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I hope you are able to get this!

Okay, so Nathan and I just came back from our travel agent. In terms of prices, this will all depend on what city your are flying from, how many people, group rate, etc... The hotel doesn't offer any additional discounts according to the wedding coordinator who's name and email I will give you too :)

 

I have read a review that a girl on this forum forwarded to another girl looking to get married at the Grand Palladium Resort in Punta Cana. Here is the specific link for that:

Here is a link to their public pictures too! :

So Nathan and I have decided we are going Jan 28-Feb 11, 2009 (2 weeks)

so I just e-mailed the wedding coordinator to confirm. She is very nice and will send a package of info that you will need to know about documents to fax, costs, etc...

 

Her name is Isyuney and her e-mail is acliente.palace@fiestahotelgroup.com

 

I hope this helps and let me know how you make out and if you have any new info to share. Maybe we will both end up getting married in the same week!!

 

Cynthia :)

I am also getting married at this resort but will be staying in the Palace section. We are leaving on Nov 27, 2008 and are getting married on Nov 30. The WC is the same for the Punta Cana and Palace sections. Even though I haven't gotten married there yet, I have been in touch with the WC's there since Sept and have got almost everything organized. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me and I may be able to help you out. The WC for the Bavaro section is very quick and easy to work with, but our WC is not always very quick. I have got a few sample pics from them of bouquet upgrades they have done before as well as a pic of a beach ceremony. If you would like to see them, just PM me.

Are you saying the WC for the Bavaro section is different than the WC for the Punta Cana or Palace Section? I've have sent a few emails back and forth to Isyuney and have managed to confirm a date...April 16, 2009, but all my other questions as to pictures, locations, flowers, meals, extra's, etc, have basically gone unanswered. If you have ANY other info I would LOVE to receive it. We stayed in the Punta Cana Section last year, and would be very happy to return there. A TA with whom I have had some contact with has given me prices for pckgs to Palladium Bavaro, but nothing on Punta cana Section yet. So any TA's out there who might be able to get this info for me I'd appreciate it. Flying from Toronto, Fri, Sat or Sun departures, April 10, 11 or 12 2009, 1 and 2 week stays. Thanks for any and all info.

The WC is different for the Bavaro section. The one you have talked to is the WC for the Punta Cana & Palace sections. We did mos of our organizing of what we want while talking to Carolina from the Bavaro, but then we ended up booking in the Palace section, and the only thing I have heard back is conformation on our wedding date. No other questions were answered yet, and I am thinking of contacting Carolina again just to get a few questions answered. Everything is officially decided on the day after you arrive there, you meet with the WC and go through everything with her. I just like to have an idea of what I want beforehand.

I do know that everything usually says that the wedding is in the gazebo, but you can have the ceremony on the beach, and Carolina sent me a pic of on beach wedding, as well as some bouquets that they have done.

Would you mind sending me a copy of the pics she sent you? I can't imagine having nothing to go on until we arrive. I too just have a "yes" your date is saved, but nothing else. I want to start making STD's and invites, but I'd like more info on the packages at Gr. Palladium Punta Cana

Hi all Grand Palladium Brides!

I'm also booked at the Grand Palladium Bavaro for Jan 24 to Feb 7, 2009. My TA is a DW specialist and she is the one doing all the work to organize the actual wedding for me which is amazing! What a relief! She is in direct contact with Carolina and raves about how great and quick she is about getting back to her. I'll post info as it gets passed down to me from my TA. At this point, I'm waiting to hear back with the confirmed wedding date. We are hoping for Jan 28, so keep your fingers crossed for us! Any pics or info you guys have would be great! wink.gif

I really enjoyed talking to Carolina before we offically booked, as she was super quick. The one time my Mom emailed her and she wrote back about 3 hours later and apologized for taking so long to respond. Isyuney on the other hand does not respond very quickly at all. She is the WC for the Punta Cana & Palace, and I just wrote her again today to find out if I am ever going to get answers to my questions. I am going to get on this womans case until she responds right away to get me off her back it I have too. I read a review from a wedding in 2006 I think at the Punta Cana section and they said that there was a new WC that was not very quick. I am thinking this may be the same woman and she hasn't gotten any quicker. My day will still come and there will not ba a WC that will ruin it.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
