    Hope to be married 1st week Mar/2011
    Looking at Grand Pallidium Colonial
    and Barcelo Maya Colonial

    We are going to have 40-60 guests so we are unable to have the reception in an A la Carte. It looks like Barcelo will provide 20 meals as part of the wedding package and then only charge $24 per plate for each additional guest. The Pallidium looks like it will include 8 guests as part of the wedding package and then each additional guest will be 50-60 USD per plate which seems quite a bit more. Is anyone else experiencing these differences between resorts? How do you chose if you want to try and stay on a bit of a budget? Any feedback about either hotels receptions would be much appreciated.

      Hi there congrats and welcome to the forum. Have you tried doing a search? There are quite a few Palladium brides and I am sure if you search the threads you may find an answer. Good luck and happy planning!

        Hi Tanya, welcome to the forum. Good luck with finalizing with the resort. I would definitely follow JanineA's advice. Check out the the different threads and see if there are discussions about that particular resort or you can also check out the Travel section and talk to one of the very helpful TA's.

        Good luck!
        BDW the best place for my TYPE A personality!

          We looked at the Barcelo and many other resorts in Punta Cana for our April 2011 wedding and ended up choosing the Barcelo Punta Cana due to them having the best and most reasonable wedding packages as well and it being a reasonable resort for our guests to afford. The other resorts look gorgeous but I couldnt bring myself to make guests feel they had to spend an arm and a leg to attend or put ourselves into debt over it!
