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

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

 

I know what you mean about the loose planning. I think a person needs to be really flexible if getting married in the DR. I got my date back and confirmed for April 20, 2010. So we will all be there around the same time. I think we will be going April 15 -22. I didn't have to put a deposit or anything, Carolina said she would be in touch with me closer to the date. This worries me a little because I don't feel like it is secure, but I just have to trust it will work out. I asked to have the ceremony later in the day and we are renting out the disco for after dinner.

We were going to have a symbolic ceremony but Carolina told me that legal ceremonies get priority, so we decided to do a legal one. Is anybody else doing legal?

Does anybody know if you have to use the GP photographer and if not what the procedure is to get a different one. I read that some people used photosouvenir and they looked really good. Any insight would be great?

I am so relieved to have my date. Where is everyone getting married, beach or gazebo?

I'm not sure where we are getting married. I love the idea of the beach, but I'm afraid it will be too windy...and the Gazebo - does anyone know how they set this are up? We have about 30-40 people going, and I'm not sure it would be big enough.

 

I've seen lots of great photos from Photosouvenir. I emailed them but they never got back to me. Fortunately though, my good friend who is a photographer offered to do our wedding for us.

 

If you bring a photographer from offsite, the day pass is 60USD according to Carolina, but if the photog is traveling with you, there is no charge.

I'm getting married in the gazebo, since we are having a catholic (and therefore, legal) wedding. I fell in love with Photosouvenir - but, they were already booked the day of my wedding. Instead we are using HDC photo, and they have been very pleasant so far.

DEH, when my parents went down there to meet with carolina (they did a site visit since my FI and I couldn't), the chairs were some in the gazebo, some outside on the lawn area. I would double check with carolina, but I think you should be able to fit everyone with no problems.

We decided on the gazebo, but there will be between 40-50 people so I hope they will all fit. I will have to ask Carolina about that. She told me that on the beach you get a lot of people looking. It was a hard decision, but I think both will be beautiful.

That's what I was afraid of too! I don't really want men in speedos in the background. Carolina sent me some pictures of the gazebo and it looks really beautiful, and that it would be easy to keep more private. I too, will check with her about how it would work for a larger crowd. I'll let you know!

Hi Ladies,

 

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one Carolina doesn't respond to! lol I thought it was just me! :P

 

I think were going to do the gazebo as well...I orginally wanted the beach but....there will be alot of randoms in the background of the pics, and I don't want the so much.

 

Sence I hvan't heard from her, do any of yas know if all the chairs are covered for the ceremony?

    • 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.
