The decor from the hard rock looks nice. I have heard if you book directly with creative punta Cana that the cost will be lower since the resort will not up price it. I wonder if this is true?

Thanks Patty! I really appreciate it! I am super stressed out!

Good Morning - I just returned from DR and we stayed at Hard Rock Punta Cana. It's an awesome resort! We met with the wedding & group sales manager last week and were told the onsite WC's will not begin working with brides prior to 30 days to your wedding. Up until that time you need to work through the Miami office and the onsite WC's have been instructed to not even respond if a bride contacts them before the 30 day mark. Apparently they are very strict with this policy and will not budge. All communication must be with the Miami office until you are assigned your WC 30 days prior to your wedding date. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. TA Patty

Hi~

I will be getting married at the HR on November 21st and I too have not been assigned an onsite coordinator. YIKES!!

I was told I would be contacted 30 days prior to the wedding  and assigned someone to help finalize some of my plans. I am praying that within the next week someone contacts me so I can relax a little...

 

If anyone has pictures of Isla Beach I would love to see them. Any suggestions on food would be greatly appreciated as well as we plan to have our reception outside (Element Terrace) and plated dinners are not available.

 

Eleni - did someone do a walk through with you when you arrived at the resort? I am taking your advice on the rehearsal as well...I will be using the inhouse photographer as well, not looking forward to that but the other photographers I wanted were booked. Did she take pictures during the ceremony and right after or was that extra? I am not planning to have him/her at the reception but hoping I get some nice photos during the ceremony and immediatly after!

 

The good news is: I have been told the onsite coordinators at the resort are amazing and much better than who you deal with in Miami.  I hope this is the case as I have worried myself sick about details and really hope everything comes together.

 

Congrats to all the past and future brides :)

Thanks

HI!  I am just in the beginning stages of planning since my wedding is not until June 2014.  I have so many questions, I don't know where to start.  I am particularly interested in how do you find out what photographers and videographers are the good ones and do they send you samples?  Also, which places would be the best to have the ceremony versus the reception?  What would be the best time to have the ceremony and do you wait to have the cocktail hour and reception because you want to take beach pictures?  If you get the complimentary wedding package, can you add in more decorations?  What kind of decorations do they have for the reception or do you have to purchase them?  For your guests, how do they book their reservations? 

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi ladies! I will be getting married at the hrpc on November 24, 2012! Almost a month away! I'm just wondering what anyone is using for music during the ceremony? I'm having a hard time deciding on what would be best!

HI, I am getting married a few days before you (21st) and I have the same question...my future husband is a DJ so the idea of hiring someone else isn't appealing to us. I am trying to determine which music package to purchase, did you receive a copy of that yet?

 

My reception is outside so I am not able to do a plated dinner ~ have you heard any recommendations on the non-plated menu for outside receptions?
