    Hi Ladies!!

     

    My fiance and I have just decided on the Hard Rock for our wedding in August of this year.... Soon, right?!? Their website looks absolutely AMAZING and this is the perfect atmosphere for our personalities.  I'm very excited!

     

    We are working with a travel agency here (I'm from Ohio) who will also assist us in working with the wedding planner at the Hard Rock.  We are planning on doing the legal marriage here in Ohio before we go down there, so the "ceremony" will just be basically for show and something fun for us.  Then it's 9 days of paradise and enjoying being newlyweds.

     

    We are not taking any guests with us.  Just us two! Has anyone else done this or know of someone who has? Both of our families have the "whatever makes us happy" attitude.  Something intimiate and exclusive is what we are going for, with a big reception when we return.

     

    If anyone has any advice, pointers, etc. about the Hard Rock, destination weddings, or the Dominican Republic in general, I would love to hear about it!

     

    Good luck and happy planning!

        I am also getting married at the Hard Rock in October, 2011. When researching the marriage part of it, it seems a lot easier to get married in the states first before going to Punta Cana.  We are looking at getting married the week before in the court house and have a symbolic ceremony in Punta Cana.  Has anyone had luck with their Wedding Coordinator? The lady I was assigned told me that the on site wedding coordinator would contact me 3 months before the wedding to set up details.  YIKES that worries me b/c I want to get all the details done now.  Any information would help.  The pictures online look amazing.

          Hi ladies! I'm not a Hard Rock bride and I'm not sure if everyone already knows about this, but I got this in my e-mail today and thought I'd pass it on in case someone hasn't seen it yet. It's a $1500 resort credit that can be used towards tours, room upgrades, your wedding packages and a bunch of other stuff. Happy planning!

              I saw on the website that they don't allow outside vendors, but do you think they will allow Pastor York perform the ceremony? And can you use the $1500 credit towards the photography packages?

                      They do allow you to bring in your own Pastor/officiant. And you can probably use outside vendors but you do have to pay for them to come into hotel which I believe is $88 a day for a guest pass. Our Priest is flying down with us and staying at the hotel so we are able to use him for the ceremony.

                       

                      Hope that helps! You can use the 1500 towards the wedding packages, not sure if you can use it towards the photography though, probably only the part that is included in the packages.
