Hi Ladies!

 

I am also getting married here in Dec. 2012! I have tons of questions about the flow of the wedding. I appreciate any info form brides who have gotten married there!

 

Suzie - What time is your wedding and where are you having the ceremony? Are you doing the private or semi-private dinner? Our reception is at 4:30 on the beach but I am considering moving it to the gazebo for privacy. Are you doing a cocktail hour before dinner or the beach party? What are you doing for photography? I was hoping to take pictures with my wedding party before the ceremony so we don't miss any part of the wedding. What are you doing? Sorry for all the questions! Do mind posting or PMing me when you are done a review of your wedding? We are expecting about 40 people. I just have so many questions about how the wedding day is going to go.

Hi Folks!

 

I just booked our wedding for June 2013!!!!!! My fiance and I are so excitedwink.gif.  About the menu, has anyone requested a five course dinner at the Palladium? We are planning on a private dinner with 40+ people (we'll see how many more we'll have by Aprilish 2013). We want the cocktail hour with cold or hot appetizers followed by a plated dinner with an hors d'oeuvre, soup or salad, amuse (palate cleanser) or intermezzo (i.e.sorbet), main course and desert. The menu posted by richarsd looks great!! Can we choose whatever we want from it? For folks that have gotten married--what do you think?

Hi Folks!!!

 

I'm new to this site! I've just booked our wedding at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana for June 2013. We are so excited! We are having a cocktail hour and private dinner with 40+ guests. I saw the menu posted by richarsd and I have a few questions that I want to ask former brides:

1. Is it possible to choose 5 courses from that menu? (hors d'oeuvre, soup or salad, amuse or intermezzo (palate cleanser), main course and desert.

2. Can receptions be held in a conference center ballroom instead of a restaurant?

3. Do you think we can have a signature cocktail for the cocktail hour?

Hi there,

 

1) You can only choose ONE item for every guest, it's not like a traditional wedding reception where guests have a choice of beef, chicken or fish. etc. So you would pick one appetizer, one entree and one dessert that every person will have. I believe they make an exception for a vegetarian and any children.

 

2) I've never heard of anyone wanting to use the conference center for a reception but that's a question I'd ask Carolina about.

 

3) I don't see why you couldn't have a signature cocktail for your cocktail hour. That is assuming you're talking about the cocktail hour you'd be paying for in addition to the one that is included in your package, again I would clarify that with Carolina.

 

If you go on this particular thread you'll find the answer to a lot of questions. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/14643/married-or-going-to-be-married-at-grand-palladium-punta-cana

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
