I initially wanted a plated dinner, but since we are having everything outside, Rene said this wasn't possible. My fiancee and I liked the seafood buffet listing the best, but I read two bride's reviews on here where one said it wasn't very good.

       

      Any advice on food selections would be great!

       

      Also, we are planning on having the dinner and reception at the Element Terrace but don't know what would be a good spot for our cocktail party before and our 2 hour after party after the formal reception. We liked the Sun Pool right next to the Element Terrace, but Rene told me it wasn't large enough for our party of 40 people, and I was left stuck trying to find a location but haven't found that many pictures to help me decide. I would really appreciate any advice you all may have! Thank you so much! <3

       

      Hi,

      I got married at the HR on Nov 21, 2012 - it was an amazing experience. First of all, my reception and cocktail party were at the Element Terrace which was perfect for 30-40 plus people. You will be much more relieved once you get to the resort as the wedding department is very helpful and prepared to take good care of you! I too had many unanswered questions beforehand but once I got there everything ran very smooth....

      As far as the food goes, we weren't able to have a plated dinner so anything buffet to me is not the best. Fruit and salad were great but some of the warmer items weren't as warm/hot as I had hoped but that happens on any type of buffet I'm afraid especially when you are outside! Either way we enjoyed the selections and the people at the resort were wonderful and very accommodating.

       

      If you have any questions, please let me know. You will have a beautiful wedding and reception ~ best wishes

                  Hi Girls! sorry it took me so long! but here´s my review! I got married at Hard Rock Punta Cana on 11/10/12

                  My wedding coordinator was Luiciana she was absolutely amazing!!! I forgot so many thins like the sand for the ceremony, the flower girl basket, the welcome letter for the guests and she helped me with everything! I was soooo happy with her service and help.

                  I made a welcome coctail on eclipse terrace and ask the guests to come all white dressed and it was soo beautiful. here´s a picture

                  I had 95 guests comming to the wedding that was on woodstock plaza at 5pm. It was a catholic ceremony the party was there after.

                  I choose ivory collection for the ceremony and carribbean celebrations for the reception, because they have a better price, they also provided the led dance floor wich was a complete disaster, I do not recomend caribbean for the led floor. mine didint even worked, until a guest had to check some cable problems and 30 minutes before the party was over it started working. They refound me 70% of the led money (1000$) but I felt frustrated about a dance floor that didn´t work

                   

                  PHOTOGRAPHER: I choose Jochy Fersobe and paid him and his crew 2 room nights (about 6 people)  the cost was very high (about 7000$) but was the best choice! it was simply amazing! You can check the same day edit video here: luckly I didnt had to pay a fee for them. Smile market made the pics fot the first party and they terrible, I didint liked any of the pictures but since I got it for free with my wedding collection I was happy I hired jochy. The girl only stayed for 1 hour, and since we have a small rain moment she ran out without taking picture of important moments.

                   

                  RESORT CREDITS: The day after we used our guests resort credits to go on chill out cap cana catamaran and it was a great idea, we dance and enjoy on the boat fromm 1pm to 7pm, its bout 300 resort credits each

                  I used mines on spa (absolutle amazing) and hair saloon, take care with makeup (I took my own make up artist) and I tried the saloon service and didnt like it, the hair updo was great but makeup forget it... Be careful with appointments for your guests, casuse since I had so many guests they didin´t had enough time to attend them all, so I hired a hairdresser and a makeup artist from santo domingo, she stayed in a room taking care of my maids of honnor.

                   

                  Well thas a part of my reviwe fell free to ask anything. and good luck in your planning!

                    WOW!!! BEAUTIFUL!!...i must say tht the only photographer/videographer that has my heart is Jochy Fersobe and i have been trying to find someone who charges less because i feel he charges way too much being in the Dominican Republic...Katyanova is great too but she is not available for the day of my wedding....its soo hard to decide on a photographer!
