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

Recommended Posts

I was going to say, I think the dj is only $50 cheaper, at that price I'd just hire the dj. Thanks for sharing the info, Now I know what I'll do if worse comes to worse.

Hi lovely ladies

I was wondering if you could post details of what you plan to do if you're having an "At home party" after you return from your wedding? We were planning on having one next summer but now are thinking about having it mid-May after we return from our Honeymoon. What is everyone doing in the way of food, drinks etc? Who do we invite? Do we invite everyone including those that were actually at the wedding? Please let me know so I can get some ideas. Thanks a bunch!

All good questions. If it was completely up to me I'd just get married in Punta Cana and that'd be that. But since I am an only child, my parents really want to show me off to the rest of family and friends who can't make it down.
We are having our reception dinner in July (10) We wanted to go cheap, so I choice the legion.. For 70ppl it'll cost a little less then $500 for the food. I will provide wine for dinner, but then it will be a pay bar after dinner. (2.5$ for a beer, 3.5$ for mix drink and 3$ for a shot)
I am also not hiring a dj, I will do the same thing with the whole Ipod thing.
I will consider just buying disposable cameras and allow the guest to take pics, as again I will not re hire a photographer.
I am inviting everyone who is coming down for the wedding, and then only family members and very close friends (that we see often, that we actually do things with)

welcome to my world!!!! I was suppose to get them all back Oct 1st, nothing.. no one sent them back.
So I sent everyone an e-mail giving a longer date (Jan 15th) and said if you don't reply by this date, and you want to come last minute, there is a fee and we are not paying for it.
I will have to let you know how that goes Jan 15th.
Hope it works out better for you then for me. Keep us posted.

Dawn I'm really happy you finally got your dress :) sposa bella have beautifull dresses!!!!! ivory looks so much better on alot of people, but most people don't know because we all look at white first, but then when you try a ivory dress, wow what a difference, my dress is cafe au lait afterall LOL so not white either.

If it can help anyone, I ordered the suits for the guys at studio suit, I should get them in about 2 weeks, I'll write a review on them. The thread on this forum about this compagnie is positive so I'm really anxious to see them :)

I had the same problem, so I sent a e-mail to everyone and called a few, telling them the final date for booking and that it would be to late after that because the hotel is almost full. I had to be a bit rude to get an answer but I rather have a answer right away instead of being worried about who is coming or not, Good luck.

Congrates on the find, I love that store,better yet I love st-hurbert street. I am on that street at least every second weekend. lol I actually found my fans there, each $1 no tax!!!

Can't wait to see pictures.

I am tanned, so Ivory completely washed me out, I had to go with white. I envy you girls who could mix their wedding colour dress!!!

 

Sorry girls, I haven't tried to e-mail her recently. Thankfully I haven't I'd be stressing hard core if my e-mail didn't go through, keep us posted on that one, let us know if it finally went through

    • Hi All, are there any one planning to held destination wedding in Thailand, Indonesia or Maldives recently? 
    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
