exceeded expectations, my wedding at Villa del Palmar

Recommended Posts

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I wish you all the best in your planning and wedding experience. I think the best mantra I followed that really helped things fall into place was to follow-up, follow-thru, and when necessary let go of the "particulars." Staying on top of things myself, but always being kind and understanding kept me sane AND not letting the little things that weren't exactly the way I wanted stop me from enjoying everything really kept me from being a Bridezilla. I think the more I faced reality and my timeline and being flexible with the possibilities left the door open for more positive opportunities and experiences to follow. Stay positive stay on top of it and stay flexible. I think we all have been waiting for this special moment but don't be the obstacle standing in your way. The good vibes will transcend to your guests and the rest will follow.


P.S. Note about the catering for the reception. So I did not expect this and was truly touched that they did this. When we cut the cake, they took back and cut the rest for us. put them on these rectangular plates and with chocolate or raspberry syrup wrote "E & S" for Erick and Sabrina on the top of the plate and placed the wedding cake slice right under it. Lots of people loved the personal touches like that. Again their service was great, not to mention affordable for doing a wedding under $10k.


Also, CONGRATS to all the married couples.


Good luck in your life's experiences. May you be blessed and rewarded with happiness.

We have been considering one of the Villa properties...either del Palmar or Arco...your pics are beautiful!! We are on a pretty tight budget though...do you think we could still get something nice staying within the package prices? We like the truly madly deeply pkg. What were the prices like for the reception? Did you have to pay extra for the decor for the reception? It's great to be able to get some insight from someone whos actually done what you're thinking about doing :)

Hi Sabrina,


Thank you for posting such a great review. I am also considering working with Gretel and planning my wedding at Villa del Palmar. We are extremely picky about food and since you mentioned that food was awesome, can you please tell me what buffett of plate did you choose for your reception?


I am also looking for a DJ, was it possible for your guests to dance? I come from a family that loves music and hitting the dance floors which is why I ask.


Thank you in advance.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • 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
