Hi Dan!  I am getting married at Playacar Palace and am also doing a symbolic there and getting legally married once we return home.  Just let your WC know ahead of time, but it has not been a problem - you just may not get the "honeymoon" package which has breakfast in bed the next day but heck you have 24 hour room service!!

Mrsbruff2B - thanks for your questions post.  Helped me to know the fabric of the aisle runner.  Wasn't going to have it before, but now I may consider it, as I'm thinking of natural type decorations.

 

 

Beatyea - are you having guests book through a TA or directly through the resort?

Mochamakes - encouraging news about Claudia!  I'll need to talk to Miami about this deposit business.  It gives guests more opportunity to come if they don't have to pay in full 2 months before the wedding!

Claudia was always able to answer questions within a few days and even helped out when the reservations department wouldn't return phone calls. I wish I never had to deal with anyone in Miami, they were horrible!!!

 

We didn't have a link for bookings, that wasn't available. Our guests had to call the reservations and put down 20% deposit with the balance due 60 days before departure. That's also when they closed the block, but we were able to book rooms after that date, they just had to be paid in full at reservation.

 



 



Great to have a groom here, too!

We're choosing the symbolic ceremony for the ease of it and because we prefer to "customize" our ceremony more (for example, have a friend marry us). And given Colorado's common-law marriage rules, it is probably sufficient, but we do want to formalize it at some point. I would rather do that after the Moon Palace ceremony, because I want that to feel like our real wedding date, but don't know if that will cause us problems.




As an aside, it always feels a little weird posting/reading here, like I'm a guy in the ladies' room. wink.gif But the fiancee isn't into the internet forum thing so doing the web research falls to me.

As a side note - after sending my plethora of questions to Claudia (which she confirmed is actually my WC that I'll be working with on-site), she has told me that she will put me in touch with someone to answer my questions before the 90 days.  AND, I got an additional email from my Miami Coordinator telling me more details on this:

 

Good Afternoon,

 

Please be advised that they have informed me that there is a new department called the concierge department that will be able to assist you with the wedding details, which they will then get you in contact with your onsite wedding coordinator 3 months prior.

 

Please be informed that I am forwarding your questions to Iliana and Lizzie for further assistance.

Looks like they have a new department what will help answer questions and that's who Lizzie is who is helping Coconoir! (right?)  Just thought this may help us clear things up a little...

 

P.S.  Hoping to book my event sites ASAP through Lizzie, like you suggested Coconoir.

Good Morning everyone....

 

I just need to vent, as I am getting so upset....I still haven't gotten my wedding contract for my new date.  I know things take longer with destination weddings, but did it take everyone close to a month get their wedding contract from MP?  I am kind of at a halt and can't do anything until that contract is signed.....sad.gif

 

Ok, thanks!!

    • 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.
