    Hi Girls!

    So I have a questions for the brides that have already been married at Hard ROck Punta Cana. We are getting married enxt October and choose the symbolic ceremony. At first we had the legal ceremony but Nancy told us that all the paper work is a pain and the the legal ceremony is not as personal as the symbolic one so we switched it. Now im rethinking this as I dont know if I want to get married first inNew York becaue then we will already be married when we come down for the wedding and i started to wonder will it feel as special if we are already legally married?.. Has anyone choosen the legal ceremony at the Hard Rock? How was it? Was it personal? I want to do the sand ceremony and have a reading and have the minsiter talk  about love, marriage, etc. i want it to be romantic and personal, not cold and official. Does anyone know anyhting about this?

     

     

    For brides to be, what are you doing? Legal or symbolic?

     

     

    Let me know. Thanks!

        Gina do you have a list of the costs of some things from your wedding? Like the room rates? The extras? I realy love this hotel but it seems a little expensive, so your coments about price will be extremely helpful to me.

            Hi Britnee,

             

            Your pictures look great! Your dress was amazing! Were you happy with how the day went Any tips?.. How was your DJ? It looks like you had fun but im a little nervous. I want to make sure its all fun dance and hip hop music from the US.. did he play alot of that?... Did you do seated or buffet?....How was the timing of everything? Did it all go smoothly. Would love to hear details.

             

            Thanks!

            Gina

              Hi Britnee,

               

              Congratulations!!! Thanks for posting your beautiful wedding.  I am new to this thread but has been reading many forums regarding wedding at the HRPC.  Your dress was gorgeous.  I can't wait to read your reviews.  We are doing a site visit there in March 2012.  Our wedding is in August 2013.  Anyway, Congrats again.

                Hey Gina,

                 

                The DJ was great actually, they had it set up to a computer too i believe so you were able to request whatever you wanted and they could down load it, believe me when I say the Hard Rock knows music...I was concerned but after being there for only a day you realize that they have all the current music and at the reception we had alot of fun. My biggest tip is to not get so concerned with little details, i did welcome bags, bought signs, garters etc. and ended up forgetting the sign for the flower girl and ring bearer to carry in the room, the garter, etc. and to be honest not having them wasn't a problem but knowing they were back in the room and that I had spent money on them still bothers me...the welcome bags were a hit but really I did a magazine and that was the real hit, everything else I barely saw people use, they may have used it in their room but not when I saw them...also I know they appreciated it but the stress us brides put ourselves under with those things is absurd to just get a small group of people who use them...

                 

                The wedding department was great but to be honest I didn't feel like I was treated any better than any other guest. HARD ROCK HAS SUPERIOR SERVICE, the people are amazing and there is no language barrier as you hear people complaining about. The main problem is with the front desk who seems to like to pass off the problems to someone else who can't help. We will def. be returning, the food is great, the grounds are great, the beach is awesome, I had 66 guests and almost every one of them said this was there favorite all inclusive resort...

                 

                All in all we had fun, and enjoyed ourselves, i just wish, as every bride says, I had sat back to enjoy more of it rather than stressing this past year about it. I think the wedding department and the front desk will continue to get better as they do more weddings and we did have special circumstances why i was annoyed the day of mine (it rained right after the ceremony which meant all of the reception had to be done undernearth the covered area on the Element terrace, still looked good but I wanted it more spread out so the entire terrace didn't look empty...just wasnt the look i was going for, but it stopped raining after 20 minutes and everything was fine, just set up differently. In the end I just had to say to myself that it wasn't a big deal and got some wine...

                 

                On another note, the Champagne and mimosas here are not that great, so don't be expecting fabulous when it comes to that. The champagne is not bubbly so you are better off sticking with wine...and remember you can use your credits to upgrade wine...

                 

                Sorry i am all over the place, I will post a review about each separate thing soon, just wanted to get back to you on some of the stuff :)

                 

                Happy Planning!

                    Thanks Britnee! This is all really helpful! Especally about the DJ and the welcome bags... I think i am going to do a booklet too.. And put all the inof in it and pics of the guests and fun facts about them.. Question, how did you desgin yours and how did you print them and bind them?
