Also, Claire and Carlotta, I am bringing my dress on board and putting in the overhead compartments since my plane doesn't have a closet.  They did tell me that I will board first, and they gave me seats close to the front so I could be off rather quickly-if it goes as planned.


I have sandals-silver from aldo, with a tiny wedge heal, not much at all, and are sparkly.  I am borrowing them from my sister in law.

Does anyone have wording for how to describe the differences between the sections of the resort? I'm in the process of putting our wedding website together and wanted to give like a couple of lines describing each section.

Hey everyone, 


I want to get some bridesmaids bouquets for the 3 girls in my wedding, since the package only comes with the one for the bride and the GP options are pretty slim.  I asked for a quote from a vendor and they had a minimum order that was 4 times what the flowers I would need would be and almost half the order was delivery fees.  Anyone have any luck with small flower orders being delivered to GP?

Hello past and future brides!!


I have been reading this thread for months now! I am happy to announce that we have finally nailed down all of our details! We will be getting married at the Gran Palladium White sands on February 6th, 2014!!! We have requested a 4 pm ceremony time, but so far it looks like it will be 2 pm!


We have also narrowed it down, and waiting to hear from our photographer of choice! Vanessa said it would not cost us anything for them to come onto the resort. We have chosen Blue Lens Caribe. They have very affordable package options and their photos are beautiful


We chose the 'Waves of Love package'....we LOVED the star fish and sea shell theme with the blue!


Our dinner will be at Portifino at 6 pm...still haven't decided between the chicken or the steak! And after we are heading to Las Rocas for our cocktail party. We made it for 3 hours, and with drinks only. I figured its right after dinner, and if people are hungry they can pick something up after the party!


Originally we were going to do the beach bash, but it was just getting too costly!


We will be travelling from Halifax with our group of (hopefully) 40 people!


Im sure I will think of more things that we have finished but I do have to say that so far, dealing with Vanessa has been amazing! She seems to really have everything figured out!


Any and all advice from you gals is greatly appreciated!!


Happy planning to you all!!

Hello all the new brides here!!


Jen, to find a flowershop with good costs was a nightmare. I was really shocked about the costs they were sending me. So I decided to ask to Vanessa, my planner, and she suggested me Floreria Iris at Playa del Carmen. They have costs 3 times cheaper than other flowershops I emailed. 



Iamlizzy, welcome to the forum! I think Vanessa is great! and i am surer that I was going to be happier when I met her. She is really nice, helpful and funny! Ok we speak the same language and this maybe permits that both are more comfortable writing mails. She not only is a good planner but she also gives me great ideas to save money or help me with other things that are not related directly to the Palladium. 


I am also making the Las Rocas Bar party! And about Portofino I recommend you the sirloin!

Hi Ladies,


I haven't been on in so long like Claire work has been insane!  And we moved into our new home and now that we've been there for 3 weeks we're finally starting to put things together and I can start thinking wedding again rather than house. I have just read everything I missed and I want to respond to so many things but I'd need to sit and take notes lol!  Welcome to all of the new brides-to-be on the forum!  I am so happy that this is such an active place.  Although I don't know a lot about the new packages it is all the same excitement and confusion trying to organize for all of us. 


We get married in 2 months from today!  61 days to be exact.  I still feel like I have so much to do!  I think we're pretty well set on 48-50 as our final number.  My wedding dress is currently en route from Ontario out to Alberta for me right now.  I'm in Saskatchewan for another 2 days for work though so I'm hoping I'm there to greet it when it arrives!  I can't wait to try it on, and then I have to find somewhere to take it to get sized.  I'm hippy, so it needed to be ordered quite large and my bust certainly doesn't measure up!  Lol! 


Carlotta, how are you feeling?  You're getting married just before me so you only have like 6 weeks to go!  I don't know what this forum is going to do without when you're off in Mexico.  You're such a fantastic help to everyone.  Is there anyone on here who is getting married in the next month or two? 


I'll definitely be keeping up from here on out.  I miss you guys!  xo

    • 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.
