My wedding at Paradisus Palma Real 2/13/10

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, we just got back from our wedding at the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana on 2/13 and i just wanted to let all the Punta Cana brides not to worry, it was everything I always dreamed of and more. Our trip didn't start off very well because our flight got cancelled last Wednesday because of the snow storm in New Jersey, but after a lot of stress and $ we finally made it before the wedding. I would definitley recommend when you purchase your airfare, to buy the insurance and go through a travel agent, they are miracle workers. Continental cancelled our flight on Wed and could not got us on another flight until Monday, my wedding was Saturday so obviously that wouldn't work. THEY DON"T CARE AND DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY PUT YOU ON THE FLIGHT THE NEXT DAY. Anyway we finally made it and my wedding day was AMAZING !!!! The romance staff at the Paradisus Palma Real are awesome, patient, and so accomadating....Thank you so much Maria, Lenny & Noelia!!! We used DJ Mannia and he was GREAT and sooooo nice, would absolutely recommend his services to anyone. My photographer was Jorge Allocco ( i contracted Hispaniola Photo and they work with Jorge) My videographer was great too, Sergio. They took beautiful pictures and were also very nice to work with. The staff at the resort were all SOOOOOOOOOO nice, and I mean everyone regardles of whether or not they were receiving tips. The hotel is GORGEOUS, GREAT FOOD and we had an amazing time. I just wanted to let all the Paradisus Palma Real brides not to worry, your day will be PERFECT !!! Good Luck to you all smile159:

Congratulations! Glad to hear that you have an amazing wedding and can't wait to see those pics! wink.gif


Do you mind disclosing how much it was per person? I know PP is the more expensive Dominican Republic Paradisus but I'm curious as to by how much more. Thank you! :)

I am getting married there in March and have a couple of question.


Which package did you pick?

Could you rate the restaurants?

The only reason I ask the next one is bc of Trip advisor. (I know don't believe eveything you read) How was the stuff? Do you need to know spanish in order to communicate with the staff?


I can't wait to see your pictures!!!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
