Anyone find out any more about using HDC at our resort?  I'm so confused!!  Really want to book them but don't want to book and then be told "no way".  Thanks!
Every outside photographer I have spoken to tells me that the only real way to get around this is by paying for them to stay for at least a night or two at the resort, which is exactly what we're doing with whoever we decide to go with. Right now we're still deciding between Heather Prescott (that TRivera used and another bride on here is using) and Katya Nova, a couple who lives out in Punta Cana half the year. My WC, Aris, gave me a flat-out "NO" when I even hinted at flying someone else out there as my photographer or using someone else from out there.

Hi Everyone!

New here... My sister is getting married (or hoping to LOL) at the end of this January. I have been helping her plan what started out as a simple 'beach wedding' to what now has become a bigger undertaking than either of us expected! We have gone from Atlantis to Cuba to now Punta Cana, specifically BBPD - and reading this blog has certainly confirmed for me her choice in location. HOWEVER.. we have not yet heard back from a WC and would like to start booking the hotel/flights this week! I know, rediculous as it sounds, we are moving fast and have a lot to cover over the next week. So a confirmation of date would be nice. Quick question for you ladies (as you are all SO informative!): How are you getting your guests to book their rooms/flights? We were thinking of working with Air Canada Vacations (we're in the Toronto area), and they have a package sale on now with really attactive options - offered only until the end of October. The bright side is that most of the guests are immediate family so most booking can be done in one shot. Just not sure if the resort prefers booking through their website? Anyhow, any insight would be most helpful! Thanks!!

I received a reply from Aris and we are able to use an outside photographer we just have to pay the outside vendor fee. Although it is still cheaper to use hdc even with the fee! I'm booking hdc for the photography. They have been awesome to work with so far. Thanks for all your help everyone!

Wow, that changes everything. I'm a little upset she didn't offer that to me as an option when I asked. I'm still going to try to figure out some way around this. Thanks for letting us know!

Now, assuming that we were to use an outside vendor, like HDC, and pay the outside vendor fee, anyone know if we would still have to buy the photographers a day pass or something like that so they will be allowed onto the property? Assuming we're not paying for the photographer to stay overnight that is...

I assume the vendor fee should cover it!

I didn't really ask if it was an option. In my emailed I just stated that I would be using an outside photographer. Not sure if that approach would work for you or not. I'm also thinking that the vendor fee should cover the day pass!

I know the TA stuff takes some time, but it's good that it's going :) I didn't have to e-mail TP the spanish version of my question because I asked my WC if she can just help me book TP or how does the deposit work, and she replied that I don't need a deposit at all and that we can just sit down togeter with TP when I arrive, so I'm going her route. If I can wait to pay them later why not?! I just don't know why TP was asking me for 30% deposit prior to arrival.

Haha, serves me right for trying to be nice and actually ask for permission first. Thanks again!

    • 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.
