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

It certainly wasn't a top notch ceasar salad by any stretch of the imagination but it was fine and what I would have expected for a ceasar salad in the Dominican. I can't compare it to any other appetizers though.

I remember hearing that the french onion soup as an appetizer was to die for...I'd almost like to go for that but I'm worried it would make people too warm so will probably choose caesar salad.

Thanks Roxy!! Everything is DONE so that makes the waiting more difficult, lol. I do still have to pack my suitcase though (although everything is all organized and laid out already! but will wait until a couple days before. Oh yes, and I have a waxing/manicure/pedicure appointment on Friday but that's it :)

This is a question for everyone, past and future brides. What is your plan for transporting OOT bags, decor, favors, etc. in your luggage? How many bags are you taking? Are you paying extra airline fees for extra bags? For the past brides, how did you manage and what would you say worked best and would not recommend doing?

 

With OOT bags, OOT contents, brochures and a few other items I plan on bringing, I need to start coming up with some plan to pack them well and perhaps have family members help take a suitcase if needed. I plan on bringing, OOT bags, brochures, raffia fans, and possibly creating my own centerpieces with vases and submersible LED lights, but if it will be too much of a hassle i won't bother with the centerpieces. still undecided!

A girl on this forum said that she got an old suitcase from a garage sale.  Put all the wedding stuff in there, then just got rid of the suitcase in Mexico (where she got married), so she didn't have to worry about luggin it back home and possibly paying for an additional bag. This is what I plan on doing.  Hope this helps :)

We paid for an upgrade so you can take up to 100lbs each instead of 50lbs...and you also get bigger seats and other perks...we asked our travel agent and she helped set it up...we only got the upgrade on the way down though!

    • 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.
