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

Recommended Posts

Great info, I didn't even know they had centerpieces and decorations available. I guess I need to speak with Caroline. We booked our trip through apple and are still in the process of figuring out who all will be joining us down there. What sort of group rate were you guys able to secure and who did you book through?

 

Thanks for the info!

Our TA was/is phenomenal and worked out 3 different group rates for us as we have guests leaving from 3 different departure cities. The main departure is out of Ottawa, ON and we got that $1440 (CAD) tax in, which was the cheapest we had seen for our date in April (believe me, we compared!! Even better than itravel and Sell Off Vacations, which are usually cheapest). The carrier is Air Transat. Chooker, since your wedding is May (correct?) you should be able to get a pretty good deal since that's getting closer to off-season. Early April when we're going is still considered peak season so we had that working against us.

We actually started with an April date and decided to move it back to May since it was about $500/couple cheaper for a weeks trip. I have heard from couples getting married and their resort ran specials and ended up getting a few thousand back because of the size of group they had and the number of nights they stayed. I was curious if anyone had heard about this at the Palladium. The resort my friend is getting married at is the Iberostar in Punta Cana.

 

Thanks

Chhoker13 - you're right. Some resorts do that but the Palladium, unfortunately, does not. Actually, the Palladium was not our first resort choice (that being one of the reasons). I know that in addition to the Iberostar offering that deal, the Majestic does, as well...these resorts normally waive the wedding fee ($1500 or so) on top of any eals offered by the carrier. However, most of the resorts that do that are normally more expensive. We didn't feel comfortable asking people to pay $1800+ compared to $1400 just so we could get a free wedding.

We also chose the GP due to the fact that it was a few hundred dollars cheaper than some of the other resorts. Since we're in peak season, we were looking for a way to save some money. After seeing all the reviews, I am really happy with our decision! Our TA offered us a free 3 piece luggage set if we booked 16 rooms and we have that, so I am happy I don't have to buy new luggage!

 

Now if only I didn't have to deal with some people upset about us going away things would be better, however, that is a vent that is for a different day!

Hi Ladies,

I haven't been on for such a long time, and then BDW changed it was so hard to adjust lol. But I am back I come on every once and awhile see where all the ladies are at in their planning. Well I was married there in April so if any of you have questions I am around to answer them (i know it would have been so much easier if other brides had stayed on to answer our questions)

I wish you guys happy planning (it's so much fun, yes stressful but fun!! so enjoy it while it last, because I miss it ohhh so much lol)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
