The Moon Palace Photographer is "Smile Market" I was contacted by Lupita Sanchez and she sent me the prices as of today (which they are very different than whats on the website) Soemeone previosly said the prices are going up in April. She sent me those too. I honestly didnt even open the attachment because I plan on booking them this week. Im still trying to look into the packages and extras right now.

Her email is wedding2@palaceresortphotos.com

 

She is very quick to resond and answer questions.

Ha ha ha ha I hear that.

 

This is too much work. If I had not put a deposit down I may have just ran off to Vegas.  It is 10 am and I need a glass of wine but that may be frowned upon at work.  shots.gif

I hope that works for you! I think it's all a matter of your sneakiness- if you don't tell them and just put them on your guest list, they can't really do anything about it! I am flying a photographer from St. Louis and she is staying 3 days with her assistant so she is definetly a guest of the resort, so I don't have to worry about that! :)

Have any of you dealt with having to pay a per person meal cost because you went over the 35 people permitted at the function?

 

Just wondering what they are charging per person once you go over their stipulated limit.

If you have over 35 you should have 60 or 75 room nights and should qualify for a free reception! :)

Hi Airica26

 

From my understanding if you choose to use the dinner reservation for your reception you are only allowed 35.  If you have more than 35 people you will then have to purchase a private function which is (with the new packages) $50/pp for a table of 8 or $400 for a table of 8 for 2 hours. That includes food and open bar.  It's an additional $65/table/hour you want to extend.  Hope that helps!

I am hoping and assuming we will make the 75 room nights but it says the reception is for 35 people. I am wondering though if there is more than 35 people will they charge us like $50 a person for the extra 20-30 people that will be there or will they just charge us for extra table set up?

 

I was supposed to talk to the wedding planner yesterday but she cancelled on me and I am trying to do our budget. And yes, I am a planning freak-a-zoid who does things light years before they need to be done. : )

But if you qualify for a private function then it is included and you pay nothing?

    • 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.
