I am still waiting on the quote from our meeting on Jan 17 Th 2012, as well as the answer to when choosing a buffet do you get everything on the list or do you have to pick and choose? well i spoke to Renee Jan 25 again to set up another call and told her exactly what i wanted to know on the call on  the 30 Th of Jan. and still no answers. THANK GOD for Maria who is a on site WC at the resort she gave me tons of info which really help. so thanks for listening to me vent but if anyone can add and help with their experiences once they get to the resort will help put my mind at ease and the virtual tours do you know who i can get them from?

How did you communicate with the onsite WC Maria, did you phone her or email. I would like to have an alternative contact because I am loosing faith in Reene's capabilities. Also to let everyone know Hard Rock Punta Cana is no longer affiliated with Palace Resort I do not know who they are with, but my TA is trying to find out. I am trying to stay confident about my choice becasue it is too late to change I have over 50 deposits down for guests. I am still hearing positive reviews on Trip Advisor and the odd complaint but you get that with any resort. I also heard the planning stages for the wedding are very difficult but once you are at the resort everything seems to work it self out. The only thing I will warn you is that many brides find extra charges on their bills so read it very carefully.

I have been hearing rumors about Palace no longer even owning this hotel as of this month. I wonder what that means for wedding packages?!? Let us know what you find out. If I find out anything I will also post.

I have a ton of questions but my list is at home ;) however do you know if we can use a photographer from the punta Cana area and just buy a guest pass for them? Also do you have any photos of the different places to have the ceremony and reception?  Thanks!

Hey all,

So according to Rene:

 

If you're eligible for the private functions, it's only valid for use of 3 hours a day. So for example

Cocktail hour: 1 Hour

Reception: you're allowed to use the other 2 hours and then you have to pay for any additional hours depending on how many tables you have, for service.

 

Second If you are bringing your own photographer, they need to now stay a 2 night minimum.

 

The resort credits are only allowed to be used towards the wedding collections, and spa services, etc.

 

The call went so quick I barely even got to breathe! I'm going to call the hotel directly and speak to the onsite wedding planner to go over everything and make sure everything is accurate.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
