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

Recommended Posts

I am finally not as confused about Jalu Photography.

 

-The company exists in several resorts as the resort's photographers

-Jose Gonzalez (The guy whose english is not too good) runs the Grand Palladium section

-There are several photographers working at the resort, and more then one wedding photographer. Peter Reilly is one of them and he has been answering my recent emails, but may not be my photographer.

 

I'm getting the idea this place is bigger and busier then I thought, lol

Hi

 

I am getting married at the bavaro oct 2010, had my date confirmed for 8th oct.

 

I am planning on emailing the co-ordinator. Does anyone have recommendations for rooms to request?

 

Also it will be a small party coming with me (12), does anyone have any suggestions to what I can do as evening reception?

 

Also are you able to request a time for your wedding?

 

My colour scheme is purple, I have seen some flowers that I lilke, do you think the co-ordinator would be able to match what i have seen?

 

After seeing the gazebo pics, I definately want to get married there!

 

Thanks Jane[/i]

Which photographer did you get?! I booked with HCD,and I am very happy I did after seeing so many pictures of his. I was going to go with the one from the resort, but again with the no deposit's, and I was told there was only 1 resort photographer, who knew!!! so I just didn't want to bother, so I went to get one who wanted $$ from me lol

Hi, and welcome!! Congrates!!!
You can try and request a time, but I really think it goes by what the judge is doing that day.
You have the option do have a semi-private reception dinner for you and your guest, if you have less then 14 your guest can choose right off the menu. 14 guest and more you and your future Husband will pick the menu when you arrive at the resort and have your meeting with Carolina.
I think it would be a good idea to send her a picture of your colours (BM dress, whatever you may already have in your colour) and she can work on making sure you bouquet matches, but aware there may be an extra charge for that.
What are you looking for, for the room type? they are all the same, do you mean by location? what do you want to be closer to? the beach, bar, pool?

Hey girls - I haven't been on here in a while, but I was browsing through and wanted to chime in on the room types....

 

There are actually several different types of rooms. When you are getting married, you are put in the honeymoon suite (there are 3 in each villa if my memory serves me)....which is what we had. It has an outdoor shower and hammock (enclosed under a thatched roof), and has a jaccuzzi and standup shower in the washroom as well as a canopy bed and sitting area. It was lovely.

 

Some of my other guests had a variety of different rooms.

Some basic - bed and shower/tub combo washroom

Some with a bit more -

a) standard bed(s) with sitting area, shower

B) bed(s), jaccuzzi in the room

c) two floor rooms...bedroom on one floor, washroom on the second with stairs inside the room

 

And the honeymoon suites are all on the ground level, so some have an obstructed view of the water, others no view at all.

 

All the other brides that were there that I saw had a suite, so if they put you in anything else, I would mention it to them. We loved our room!

haha, thank you! We had Fran at Photosouvenir and he did a fantastic job, although from what I hear on the forum they are crazy busy and people are having trouble booking them!

As for your question about the royal section I have no idea what the rooms are like b/c that part of the hotel is sectioned off....I do know that the pool, beach cabana's look absolutely gorgeous, so I would expect the rooms to be stunning! Let us know what they were like when you get back b/c I don't think any other bride has reviewed the Royal!

Yes, I try to book with them but I didn't get a reply, it's when I spoke to HCD and booked them.

 

I will def post pics and a review just about the royal suites. Getting very excited!!!

    • I am! But I just signed the contract last night so likely won't be of any assistance yet regarding planning.  Responding so I can follow the thread :)
    • I would like both my son's to walk me down the aisle and my dad. please give me any ideas to include all 3 of them. I'm open to any ideas please
    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned.
