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!
