I have all the packages and private reception information which I have attached below.
I have also attached the salon price list. I am booking hair appointment for my bridesmaids and the moms. It is quite expensive for Mexico but I guess it is the goign price for Canada so I will not complain too much about that.

I have chosen the gala reception, which includes private room DJ and a set menu ( I am trying ot negotiate so that we can accomodate the vegetarians and those who do not like fish. They are very strict with the menus).

The gala option does not include a bar for alcohol that technically should already be included. They want an additional 15$ an hour per person to set up a domestic bar. I have told that it was not an option, I was just going to make my own bar, bring my own bottles. They still want to charge $15 a bottle for me to bring it into the room, which is fine, but they are really trying to get any penny out of you as they can.

My wedding coordinator Sandra has been good, she is responding quickly and trying to accomodate my requests as best she can. I don't have many of them but I am celiac so I have asked them for a gluten free cake and she is talking with the chef to see what they can do, which I really appreciate.

The beach option was really tempting but at US$85/person it seemed a bit much, especially if you then needed to pay more for a dance floor and DJ. (i think it would have amounted to an extra $2000.

I have chosen the Royalty package, mainly because it accomodates up to 40 people without additional charges. The others only accomodate up to 20 and hten charge an additional $12/person which can add up quicky. Plus I like to think of myself as Royal cheesy.gifelefant.gif

Let me know if you have other questions, I have asked a lot of them and got some answers.

Hope this helps.

I haven't heard back from the resort yet. Just trying to weigh out options because we aren't doing the private beach reception and Im not sure about the a la carte option because its only an hour and a half sad.gif Anyone else heard of the Thai Beach Club?
Hi, I am getting married April 7th and I will have about 30 guests. We are doing what is called a gala dinner and it only costs $37/person. It is in a private room with the DJ included, however, it does not come with a bar. Let me know if you would like more information, I have all the brochures with me.

hiii ladies.. im planning our wedding at the GRP as well, and im wanting to do the gala dinner as well. I like having it be a private reception. Its too bad about booze not bring included :(  How many hours do you get the gala dinner for? With the DJ are you giving him some of your own music to play as well?  I would love it if you could email me the brochures that you..that would be great!!      danisha229@hotmail.com

Hi Ladies! I am getting married at 3pm on April 8 2011! We were looking forward to the gazebo but are now going to have our ceremony on the beach bc the gazebo won't be available bc of the explosion.  Then we are having a private reception (we have about 55 guests) in the Thai Beach Restaurant.  It is the priciest for sure ($100/person) but we have stayed at the GSP before and absolutely loved the Thai Restaurant.  And from every other bride I have talked to who had their dinner here said it was worth every penny!  We get it from 6-10pm (but I have been told we can most likely stay until 11pm) This gives us enough time for dinner, speeches and plenty of dancing just with our group until we head off to the disco!  We were torn between doing the private beach reception and the cons I was told about that was bathrooms being public and far away,  if its windy sand can be blown onto the tables, and the dance floor is not included. Beach reception is $85/person. 

Hope this info helps!

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • 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.
