Excellence Punta Cana Brides Thread

Recommended Posts

Erin,

 

Congrats! Excellence is wonderful. I have read great things about weddings held there. I went with my mom last October to start the planning process for our November 27, 2009 wedding. We are having 40-50 people so we had to plan early. I agree with everyone that Ana is wonderful. I would even consider calling her directly to get things done quickly. Sometimes email takes a day or two. You also want to make sure they have that date available.

 

Amber,

 

Would you mind emailing me the boquets and the pastry powepoint? And any information you have on the menu. I haven't requested that info yet. My email is fhgirl3@yahoo.com. Thank you!!!

 

Debbie

I did read somewhere on the forum that Ana works directly with brides to be within a few months of their wedding. Don't know how much truth this holds...

I do know that a few weeks ago, I didn't get an answer from my WC Yulina and I forwarded the email to Ana and she in turn just emailed it right back to Yulina to answer, so I'm thinking it was probably because my wedding is still a year away?

Thanks for the great posts! My FI and I are going to be married there on July 31, 2009!!! I can NOT wait! I have been talking with Massiel. I don't plan on an elaborate party, my main focus is the photographer....I've emailed the one recommended by the resort but haven't heard from them. Does anyone have other suggestions?

 

Thanks!

I would definitely go with Photosouvenir (on the resort). They take fab pictures. I had a beach photo shoot done with them last year. Great prices, beautiful results. They are also in very high demand and we are lucky to have them on site with slots available for us. They are booked up for a very long time otherwise. Unless you have a photographer you are bringing from home, I would stick with them. Ask your wedding coordinator to forward your email to the photographers. That usually gets a response. Wow, I didn't realize how many WC's there were at Excellence!! I guess they are really busy!! Well Ana did tell me there is a wedding pretty much every day in July! I dont know how they handle it...but they do!!

 

Amber, I'm doing the beach bbq buffet for the reception, but for my welcome/rehearsal dinner, I need to pick a menu. Did you have to pick one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert? Or did you have a selection of 2 or 3 choices? It's going to be at Toscana.

Wow, I didn't realize there were so many WC's there either! I am also going with photosouvenir, I've heard nothing but good things on the forum about them. I emailed Severine last month, and she told me they won't have their 2010 prices out yet until this month. Since you're getting married in July, I would try and back them asap since they book very quickly, if they are not already. Good luck with that. I've also heard good things about HDC Photo (??) and I believe they are located in Bavaro Becah - Punta Cana.

Chulzle,

My experience last summer was that I asked for a date, and we then had to go back and forth since it was taken. Be aware that they shy away from weddings on Tuesday, because there's a resort wide beach party those evenings (my first choice was a Tuesday, so I changed it).

I'll email the documents I have, as well as the wedding reservation Excel file, though they may have changed it since last summer. Make sure to put your reservation number on the form, because that then links your reservation to the wedding.

Good luck, I'll email shortly!
