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

Recommended Posts

Love the pics of the bouquets! I think I'll stick to the white, or maybe blue ribbon!

Also -- we had fun looking at the menu last night, so thanks Dawn! So many choices to choose from. I love caprese salad...mmm!! reminds me of Italy!

Can it be June yet? lol.....I see Sap is the closest bride after me! So I bet you are excited.

Don't get to ahead of your self with the menu options because Carolina emailed to confirm that we have La Uva and we didn't end up there. We were at the Mexican restaurant. (I think each rest. had a different menu, I don't remember any of the options you guys listed.) Which was still really good. And your blocked off from the rest of the restaurant so nobody bothers you. We had ceaser salad for appetizer, grilled T bone steak (best I've EVER had!) And one vegetarian meal for one of our groomsman. It looked amazing, I wish I ordered one for myself! and chocolate lasagna and wedding cake for dessert. They were suppose to serve the cake at the lobby where everyone was drinking/waiting for us while we had pictures but they didn't they just set it on the bar and then everyone was scared to touch it so my dad brought it to the restaurant on the train with us. lol. But they actually had a cake table set up there so I guess they were waiting for the cake.

 

Ps - the cake is the BESTEST cake you will ever eat!! And I don't eat cake!!

Yum! I am so looking forward to the cake! Yeah, no we didn't actually pick -- we just had fun thinking about the options. Well, it made me hungry but it was still fun.

 

btw...Tracy, awhile ago you commented on my honeymoon dress, lol..sorry I tend to call white dresses that I'll wear during our honeymoon, my "honeymoon dress". I've been on the search for white dresses for 2 months, so I finally found a nice one!

 

Gotta get on the lingerie situation! Other than that, I'm all ready! We're doing our legal stuff here on June 3, so that' coming up soon - haven't decided if we will exchange rings or not, we may just sign and leave the Punta Cana wedding to be as real as possible! :)

You can end up at any restaurant but I think you choose from the menu (which is food from each restaurant). For example, we were at La Uva for the dinner but the food (Beef Medallions) was from Arecife restaurant. We went there later during the week and had something different... food is amazing there! And I guess if you want the cake for dessert, you just tell Carolina. We chose the tiramisu but had a guest who had chocolate allergies so we told her we wanted to cut the cake after dinner and serve it. Our groomsmen ran around and delivered cake to every table! They wasn't planned but it was fun!

It looks like most of us went with the same flowers! I didn't like the options that were included, so I went with lilies and the single lilies for the girls. I brought my own ribbon and they did a great job with it. It was a last minute pick-up and I'm glad I did!

 

(the pin was something my Aunt had been saving for my wedding day for over 10 years. She passed away last year, so it was extra special when my cousin gave it to me)

I am doing the renewal of vows next week. The wedding planner only requested that we bring in a copy of the marriage certificate we've obtained from Chicago on the day of the meeting. So if you are able to get a copy of your marriage license from Jersey within 2 weeks, you should be fine. We had to wait 10 business days here in Chicago for an offical copy.

Yes you can do that - we are getting married legally on June 3 and having a "renewal of the vows" ceremony on June 28. As mentioned above, all you need to bring is a copy of your marriage certificate.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
