:-D

 

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be working with Ari and moving to Villa Sur Mer! But that means our twinship will have to end because Ari is booked already for the 30th :-(

Of course I won't know anything for sure until the money is on the table and I won't have that for another couple of weeks - but I will still be an April 2011 bride! Yay!

Yes, yay!! At least you're on the right track. I'm sure Ari will be wonderful, I've ready many great things about her. I'm glad you've found a place. Now... happy planning!!

I am getting married @ Tensing Pen on Oct. 2nd, 2010! We are reserved and I see you already have answers to most of your questions above. Please let me know if you still have questions, will do my best to help! We opted to rent out the entire property.

 

PS. Tensing Pen just changed over management/ownership in February , so that may be affecting some of your response times. My experience with Evelyn and Camille has been quite pleasant, although it is occassionally on "Island Time"

Hello,

We book awhile ago for Tensing Pen for the weekend of April 15th-18th 2011.. we booked the entire hotel for the weekend, I think that is the way to go for a destination wedding. The staff I have been in contact with have been very nice and pleasant. I agree with asking all the questions you can before you book, but book quickly... Dates get picked up really quick!! I've been to Jamica 2 times already and I am familiar with the people and the area... I couldn't find a better place on earth to be married.

it's so great to get some info from people that are planning on going with TP for their wedding. Our date is 6/11/11. planning does seems a bit difficult sometimes, but shanique sent me all of the approved vendors and yes there is a $500 fee for non-approved vendors. the other part that seems strange is that they say for the cake 7 flowers & decor just tell us what you want & then we come up with a quote, where I would just like to be able to get some options with different prices so I can make decisions based on the price of different items. I am not even sure what kind of decor they can accommodate. I would love to use local flowers & plan on a lot of DIY decor so there is a lot to do! Would love any advice on the cake, photographer, food (what was tasty), bar, etc.

I suggest you contact the vendors directly for quotes instead of going thru Tensing Pen. I've been speaking with Rosemarie at Floral Fantasy (one of the approved vendors) and she has been AMAZING. She's quick to respond and has offered many different options to fit our budget. I'm still deciding on photographer but did see a bad review of True Colors on Tripadvisor. I met my fiance at his sister's wedding at Tensing Pen in 2006. We loved the experience so much we decided to have our wedding there as well. All of the food we had was great. I'd suggest anything with smoked marlin if you like fish. We also decided to give a choice been the filet and lobster thermidor as our main course. Both are very good! I'm not sure what bar suggestions you are looking for but we are doing a limited open bar during cocktail hour and then 2 hours open bar during the reception. We plan to open a tab and charge any drinks after that to our room. Tensing use to allow going tab only but now they require you to purchase a bar option.

Hi, we have booked for June 11, 2011 at Tensing Pen. I would also love to connect with other brides to talk about flowers, band, food, etc.

Hey guys! I'm getting married 6/17/11 at TP - wedding weekend is 6/16-6/18. My FH and I had been there on vacation about a year and a half ago and just went end of May to meet with the wedding coordinator, etc. I did NOT want to plan the entire thing over email and wanted to see some of the rooms, see what the options were, how custom the wedding could be, etc. I was nervous because of their slowness to respond over email and everything but in-person all my fears were put to rest. Shanique, the wedding coordinator, is new (been there a few months) and is really trying to step up the wedding services there (she was at one of the resorts on the beach before - Grand Palladium I think).

 

I feel like I have a lot of the details planned already but definitely think you guys are going to be able to help (and hopefully I can help you as well!).

    • 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
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
