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

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls! I met with the wedding planner/travel agent and unfortunately, she had no photos of the beach party. I told her I will take photos when we are there for other brides. I officially leave in 16 days!! OMG!!!

 

I absolutely have to finish the Welcome book for the OOT bags. Everything else is assembled in each bag. I have to upload photos. My bridesmaid and my sister (MOH) had a shower for me last weekend. It was so fun... a real reunion for me and my old work pals (I had worked for Avon for 24 years and moved from Montreal to Ottawa last year) so it was so nice to see everyone.

 

This week I have to finish the welcome book, finish going through summer clothes to decide what to pack. I pick my dress up on the 29th. I was told by the TA to put the wedding music on one CD (for the ceremony) and any other music I want to be sure the DJ has on another CD. Apparently the hotel DJ that does the beach party does not have a website or a list of songs, but Julie (TA) assures me she has only heard great comments about the music. I will still bring the songs I def. want. Martine... Julie mentioned you were there the same day we were. Look forward to meeting you on the flight!

 

The preserved orchids I ordered for the centerpieces arrived last week. They are beautiful. My mother in law went and picked up small candles for me for each centerpiece. I haven't seen them yet but I am sure they will be fine.

 

I still have to get a shell of some sort for the ring bearer to carry. Also working on a program (although I may not have time to complete this one...will leave it as the last item if I have time). Today I wrote up a list of last minute things to finish.. yikes!!! I better get my butt in gear this week.

 

Tracy... count me in for the meet and greet at the resort... I arrive on April 7th so you girls let me know when the best date is. If everyone lists their arrival dates, we should be able to work something out. Can you believe its right around the corner! I can't!!!

I actually have a big sea shell Dawn (My MIL got it for me when FI was visiting them in Halifax),I'll take a picture tomorrow (as I'm dead tired now) and I'll post it on here, you can let me know if you want me to bring it!!

 

OMG, all of the things you mention I have similar things to do, and you leave in 16, I leave in 18.. I feel like throwing up now!!!

Time is going way to fast, next thing you know,we will all be married ladies!!

Oh thanks for the compliment! So you arrive the day before my wedding! We should get together. What are your wedding colours? Mine were supposed to be turquoise and white but ended up being royal/cobalt, turquoise and white. The girls and guys are in cobalt blue and my niece is wearing a white dress with the cobalt and turquoise. I bought turquoise/royal preserved orchids for the tables so if anyone wants to use these, you are welcome to it. I guess if we meet before the 12th I can show you gals and you can decide. I doubt anyone will ruin them or walk off with them at the wedding! Anyhooo... can you believe I feel like I have done nothing today for the wedding. I am actually working (as I am sure all of you are). I am so lucky to work from home as a writer. Lately work has been slow (thank goodness) but I do have a press release I have been working on today. Hoped to get it done AND some of the welcome book... okay.... I am off to do that... wish me luck!!!

Talk to you later ladies.. and I will try to post pics.

going to attack the wedding jobs....smile67.gif

I finally decided on baby yellow,aqua and white.

Bouquets and centerpieces are yellow, aqua is the girls dresses and the 1 GM shirt. white is everything else lol.

That's so cool, your a writter!! and you get to work from home.

No I don't work, I've been on medical leave for over 2 years sad.gif but looking forward to the day I can go back.

 

Well I def can meet around 3:30-4 (before dinner drink) on sunday, this way we can know who is who, and if see each other we can say hi or stop to have a quick drink together.

I'll def be watching your wedding from a far Dawn!!

 

Courtney is so right, you always seem happy, you def make me happy after I read your post. I can imagine your an amazer writter, what do you write?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
