Hanna, thanks for forwarding the wedding packet.  I have some parts of the packet that Pilar forwarded to me but some if it is new to me.  I had not seen the flowers or the cakes and I have not received the Now Planning Form yet.  I should receive that soon though as I am still working out the exact details of times and locations for the wedding with Pilar.

Is anyone planning on having their reception in the garden area besides the beach?? It seems like everyone gets married in the pergola and has an inside reception....any thoughts??  I wanted to get married on the beach (in AUG 5/11), have cocktail at the orange lounge, and reception at the garden. What time is everyone getting married?

 

Thanks :)

Hi Christie-

Initially I wanted my the same set-up as you, but we decided on the pergola because it is a little more intimate since the rooms on the preferred side overlook the garden. We also thought we should have a little more beach influence since it is in Mexico and the beach is right behind the pergola without the hassle of sand (it was very windy when we went to our site inspection).   We decided to do the reception inside because of the heat.  My wedding is August 11 and I want people to dance all night without reservations.  My ceremony starts at 6.  Congratulations!

Have you seen the resort yet? If by the "garden" you mean the grass area between the preferred side rooms and the restaurants, then my only concern for you is the mosquito's! They are bad in the grass- or at least at night and in November. We took just a few pictures there as the sun was going down and I got eaten alive. So that may be a concern for you but you can always have them spray. Also ask them about the dance floor and I'm not sure you can have music late at night there? I'm not sure if you've seen the "orange lounge area", but it's not very private as it's right in front of the restaurants- but probably not a problem for a cocktail hour. Sorry, hope this helps- it was only my experience.

I had my reception at Las Olas/ Castaways. It's open on all sides but has a tall roof and lattice over the terraces- wind was not a problem but the breeze a was nice relief from all the dancing! So it was half indoors and half outdoors- perfect for us. The only problem with having it here was that they the reception can not start any sooner than 8pm. (they close the restaurant at 6 and then only have 2 hours for set-up) If you have your heart set on an outdoor reception, you can always have it on the Carnival Terrace outside the buffet or the pool deck if you don't have too many guests.

    • 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
    • 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.
