Oh wow! My date is November 19 :)   And Im in Alberta! awesome.   Do you know if Dreams Palm beach sends out extra information to those who have already put a deposit down?  Ive seen it be the case with other resorts on here.  I feel like a lot of my stress has been lifted now with having my date, and having the most important people to me booked, and having enough now to call it a group booking, so that's a load off. Do you have your colors picked out?

How many people do you have in total?  For now I only have 10 adults and 2 children.  Maybe if my numbers jump a little higher I should look in to the Jellyfish,  ofcourse like with so many other things you have to plan ahead, at this time its hard to guess just how many people will actually go.

Hello ladies----I got married at Dreams Palm Beach in Oct. 2011. Suffice to say all was wonderful and fabulous...I'll post pics soon. Re: A/C. I ate in 2 of the four specialty restaurants. Although it was not "blowing cold air", it was not hot either. My opinion and that of all my guests is that the French was by far the best!  I am located in Calgary, AB and just posted a thread under "Buy, Sell, Trade, etc." with a list of post wedding items I am selling. Words of advice/experience----don't stress yourself and don't load yourself down with "stuff'. It is paradise in itself and truly no abundance of items will make it better! Just say'in......

Congrats on securing your wedding date!  Such a load off right?! Now all the fun planning begins. Once we payed our deposit I received a confirmation email with our wedding planner's name and we've started an email dialogue with her.  Our wedding planner is Awilda and so far she's been great with communicating and answering all our questions very promptly.  She sent us some package information as well as some decoration options (flowers, gazebo options, centrepieces and reception options for dinner).

Hope we get to meet when we're down there.  My fiance and I will still be there on the 19th!  As far as colours, I'm still kinda up in the air, but leaning towards taupe with corral accents.

 

Happy planning and hope to chat soon!

First, would you all say that if you have 25-35 people the Jellyfish would be better?

What about the boat that hosts weddings too? Anyone ever try that place?

 

FI doesnt understand why we wouldnt be able to eat together at one of the restuarants with it being all-inclusive either. I get what he is saying but I just assumed you couldn't.

 

Oh and who is the photographer everyone chose? Who is the resort photgrapher?

 

Thanks!

Yeah its load off, now I have to just stop myself from looking at other resorts and no second guessing, Decision is made and its final.  I thought I had sent off an email asking for extra information regarding my choices, havent got anything yet, think I will send off another one, its been several weeks now.  Oh Taupe and Coral I bet would look nice.  I really love green and purple so think I will going with that, with perhaps some silver accents.  I am quite excited about picking out the little things, except for shoes, I think shoes might pose a problem. Kind of undecided about going with purple or silver.. hmmm oh well got a bit of time to decide yet.

Cant help with an American TA.  But you are so lucky, travel from the states is beyond cheaper then from Canada. Looks like November is a busy time for weddings at the DreamsPB.  I was told it is a cheaper time for Group Travel to DR.

    • 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
