Hi Ladies! Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I'm getting married at the Palace 7/25/14. We went with the Mint Breeze package but depending on how many guests confirm I might change it to the Strawberry.

 

NurseNurse0101 my actual planning didn't start until I booked my trip (they will ask you for a confirmation) it's broken down in steps. At the moment I'm stuck on step 2 which is the menu options and asked to move on to step 3 but can't do that either since it's regarding the seating chart. I have no clue how many guests are coming. We invited about 45 and so far 15 are confirmed. So I might not be able to really plan with WC until I start getting my RSVPs (haven't sent invites either lol). However I do have all the big stuff out the way photographer, makeup/hair is booked.

 

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions, I'll be glad to help!

Hi LoriGran!!!

 

I have booked my trip... :) its all paid for. Deposit deadline is Feb 1st for our guests.. that's why planning hasn't started yet. My travel agent is a destination wedding specialist who is going to be my middle woman when dealing with the W/C in mexico. I didn't bother sending invites. We made a webpage with all the info on it :)

I am in the middle of dress shopping mostly... we did pick the strawberry package.. looking like we are having about 35-40 people.... but we will know better by Feb 1st :)

 

I am excited to start planning!! October is so far away!

Hi Brides,

 

Anyone used or will be using an outside vendor for flowers? If so who did you use and was the price difference worth it?

Even though it feels like your wedding day is far away it will be here sooner than you know it! I have been engaged for almost 2 years .. Let's just say I can't wait to start counting down the days!!

Does anyone have pictures of different reception areas for this resort? I keep seeing only the beach location. I am interested in having it either at a terrace, garden, or overlooking the beach but not on sand. I have around 50-75 people coming. Anyone have this information?

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
