That is sooo funny I was thinking of contacting you and asking you some questions too.....My ceremony is at 4 pm I hoping for the Ipana beach location, the beach is supposedly longer and wider. 5pm is my ceremony and I was debating between the eclipse terrace and the tropical terrace. 6pm is my reception and I was hoping for the element terrace. I hope none of my hopes are the same as yours??? I have read they sometimes double book venues....if we both know we are on the same day it would be great for us to be on the same page to see what we both want in relation to venues......just a thought? In relation to your time in between the questions I have for you are:
1. How many guests do you have....meaning do you qualify for the unlimited functions?
2. Are you using an outside vendor for phtography/video (if you are doing both? I don't know) but if you are using the in-house photographer then you have to have consecutive events that is what I was told and read, just thought I would clear that up.
3. That is a hard one becasue my are consecutive....have you had any direction from Renee to having your functions one after another....I do not know if it is policy.....I would say do a ceremony and add on an extra hour of services it will be cheaper than adding on to your reception time...unless your guests would be ok waiting at a lounge of their choice.....
I have a question do you know if it is really cold and windy in November to have the reception on the terrace?
Also, FYI Hard Rock Punta Cana is no longer apart of the Palace Resort chain my TA is looking into who they are affiliated with......I have plenty of reference materials if you need direction I can forward them to you, the only thing I am waiting to get is a price list for the beauty salon for hair, I have asked three times and waited over a month......
I would also suggest to bring any materials that have information regarding what the hotel is suppose to offer e.g. I read they don't offer casino credits anymore and I also read they do...when ppl. were denied the employees said "show us something that says we offer this" I am bringing every piece of paper I have in my possession so I am not caught in this.....I would also bring pictures of what you are going for the more detailed you are on your end the easier it will be for you......
Have you booked a conference call with Renee yet?
Hope this helps....and I hope we can help eachother with this....
