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

Recommended Posts

LOL!!!!!!!!

I wish I thought I was going to be like that too. But time just slipt out of my fingers, especially with the time change, completely through my off my rocker!!

 

I just email Carolina actually asking her, if the DJ accepts Ipods to play for our special songs (first dance, garter/bouquet toss) or just cd.

And for the ceremony music, if there is someone that can play our music, as suppos to getting one of my guest to do it. I really just want them to sit and enjoy. Not to have to give them a task, you know!!

It's exactly like the candle but instead ppl now and days are doing sand ceremony, this way it can be kept for all of your life, and it's a pretty deceroation. There is a meaning to it. You can a vase with a coloured sand, and your new husnand has a vase and different coloured sand, the person who will be doing your reading (you pick the person) will also have a coloured sand (I choose to have Punta Cana sand) the reading person puts their sand down first as the base. Then the wedding couple pour the sands in together, each sand stands for your own life,but when you poured the sands together it's suppose to mean both lifes have been put together, and never can be sepreated like the grains of sand.

................

Pls let me know if you still don't understand, I am sure I can find another way to explain it!
Thanks so much for the explanation! It makes perfect sense now! :) And including the reading your SIL will do was especially great. That will be a beautiful part of your ceremony!

Thanks so much for the nice compliment, I thought so too, I'm so glad I decided to do it, because the way everyone explains how fast the ceremony goes, I really wanted to make it feel a little personal. With the sand ceremony it does just that

Ohhhh your having your reception at the Jellyfish.. how lucky!!!! I heard it's beautiful and only heard the best reviews. So will you be having a dj and dancing over there instead? If so.. then go for the welcome beach party if it's in your budged.
Well I am def not sure about cancellation policy as you only pay when you get there, and there is no contract. You'd best ask Carolina or your TA if your working with one.


Yeah we both have big families and plenty of friends. And our friends know we know how to party...LOL SO we believe we are looking at at least that amount.

Yup, eating and partying at Jellyfish until the wee hours of the morning. Mayte says my date is currently avail I'm just waiting for April so that I can confirm my date with Carolina for July 2011. I'm hoping it won't be a problem since we are purchasing the vow renewal package (doing the do the week before we leave and not telling anyone). We have a friend who will do our symbolic ceremony. From what I've read thus far the main problem with wedding dates and times are the judges' schedules.

Carribean Lover: go to the website renovaspa and choose our resort... they have a price list for EVERY service they provide, and i think it is just a standard rate... they also have rates for trials that can be done 2-3 days befor the wedding... at an added cost... if you are in canada you will have to pay through paypal, as it seemed credit cards were only set up for american payments... very quick reply's from the spa.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
