I got a way better quote from HDC themselves. I would contact them for prices and packages. They also respond to emails quickly it only took 24hrs for the response.

HDC is really good from what I hear from other brides. I booked them, and Arnaud usually gets back to you really quickly via email. We put our deposit down via paypal. You can find HDC on Facebook as well

This isn't totally true. She should be able to give you a time...especially if you get married by a judge in which case, you will definitely be given a time as soon as you book (if you haven't got one the confirm it asap!). HOWEVER, times are always subject to change as they're based on the judge's schedule (whether you get married by him or not...meaning if yours is symbolic and scheduled for 5 pm but another bride is getting married on the same day by the judge and he suddenly says he can only do hers at 5 pm, she gets the 5 pm spot and the symbolic wedding gets bumped to another time that day).

Hey All!

 

Hope everyone's wedding planning is going well! We are going to register tomorrow, which I didn't want to do but am finally caving to the pressure. Now I am pretty excited! 

 

I made the mistake today of looking at tripadvisor and the last few comments were NOT good ones, so now I am slightly panicking. I know everything will be fine, but I really need to stop checking there. Has anyone else run into this??

hi Sheila! Have fun choosing your registry items, January is soon!

 

Everyone will have different opinions about any resort they go to, and in my opinion it's a matter of how sensitive people are about the service and their expectations. I stayed at this resort this past August, you can read my review about it on another thread I have here :) i had a great time. My outlooks is I read everything with a grain of salt!

One of my good friends stayed at the Grand Palladium palace last november '09. She was a bridesmaid in a wedding and they had a blast. She said her only complaint was about the spa, they charge things to your room(hair styling, make-up etc.)..if they are going to do that get in writing how much they are charging. One of them got a surprise when they went to pay their bill. Also if your reception is in one of the restaurants it can be really loud and difficult to hear any of the speeches. Other then that the food, service, and housekeeping was great and the beaches beautiful!

How is everyone's planning going? This thread isn't as active as before, so I'm bumping it back up!

 

I now have 31 people booked, and need to order my OOT bags and figure out songs etc.  I feel like there's so much to do but on the other hand I feel like I have plenty of time!

I'm at 29, including bride and groom, I will be purchasing my travel mugs in the next few weeks.  I am doing a lot of AHR stuff right now cause ours will be two weeks after we come back from the dominican.

hi Sheila! I sent out my save the dates last week so I am glad that is out of the way, on to dress shopping next! I am trying to get the big things out of the way in the next coming months to avoid the stress if I wait until the last few months.

 

Can I ask how you booked your trip? Did you use a travel agent or did you book on your own and were you able to get some type of discount or group rate through anyone?
