Excellence Punta Cana Brides Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I've gotten several messages from people, and find various threads with information for Excellence Punta Cana brides, but not a particularly central resource. So I decided it time to start one :) I've gotten wonderful support from many of the upcoming and past EPC brides, and am happy to share information with everyone!

 

My FH and I are getting married July 2, 2009. I'll be adding some documents in the next post that we received from the resort, as well as others I dug up on the internet.

 

I hope past brides will visit to post their links and reviews and we can get a central resource going!

Hi all!! Another EPC bride here! smile29.gif

 

I think this thread is way overdue, so thank you Amber! My FI and I will be tying the knot on May 15, 2010 so we still have a little more than a year away, but I am trying to gather as much info as I can.

 

Lookin' forward to sharing info with you all...

Hi Everyone:) I got married at Excellence in February and it was AMAZING. I think my only complaint with the resort was the food, it wasn't the greatest, but the wedding and beach made up for that! Everyone in our party had a fabulous time. We just loved it, Lisbeth took care of most everything for our wedding. Feel free to ask me questions, I know how crazy a destination wedding can be:)

Hi theresa! Congrats on your recent wedding. So glad to see an actual EPC bride on the thread! I'm glad that it seemed, overall, to be a pleasant experience for you. So, based on your experience, is there anything about it all that you would have done differently? How were the rooms? Was your ceremony on the beach? I'm working with Yulina and with Ana Luisa less often and so far they are both pretty responsive to my questions.

Hello, my name is Michelle. Amberdgraham and I have shared ideas several times and are getting married only a few days apart! My wedding is July 12, 2009 at Excellence Punta Cana. I chose Excellence because I have been there twice and it is truly a stunning place with the friendliest people. The service is top notch, the grounds are gorgeous, the executive chef is an amazing man, and you can't beat the deals we get to indulge in pure luxury. And no kids, the icing on the cake!!!!! ( I'm a teacher!) We witnessed many weddings while we were there at both the gazebo and beach and they were so beautiful! I will be spending 3 weeks at Excellence so I'm sure I'll see more weddings after mine!!!

 

Theresa I would love to talk to you about how your wedding was. How many people did you have there? And did you get married on the beach or gazebo? Where was your cocktail hr/reception?

 

Ana is my wedding coordinator and she has gone above and beyond what I ever would have expected from a wedding coordinator. She is such a sweet person and she just got engaged herself!!!

We are having our ceremony on the beach, the cocktail hour at Agave (open air restaurant) and back to the beach for the reception! I highly recommend this. We attended the beach party several times across the two times we were there and it was exactly what I dreamed my reception would be, very untraditional, modern, and beachy!!! We have about 40 people traveling with us so far and we can't wait for them to experience Excellence!!

 

Any questions about the resort and/or planning the wedding are welcome!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
