Getting married this Nov 26th. We are all set with the resort as far as date. A little concerned about where the reception will be. We have about 60 people and I am not crazy about the beach idea. Anyone have their reception by the pool or near the gazebo?

 

Also, I love the look of those paper lantern hanging, does anyone know what the stipulations are as far as decor??

Hi Veeron, How have you managed to speak to your WC? I have emailed mine a few times and have not heard anything back. Have you called the resort? I am getting married April 2012 and I was hoping to start getting some info nailed down...like...when do I need to pay for the package? When do I need to know how many people are attending?....do you know how I can get all these questions answered?

 

Thanks

Andrea

We thought about the different packages and after talking to our WC we pick the most basic one and had a lot of add ons, in the end you get everything you want and don't want -- plus the price is slightly lower when picking your own add ons (but you have plenty of time to choose that). Our WC told us they don't make changes on any packages above basic, as far as taking things off or subs. We don't know much about resort photographer, but reading reviews we heard good things. We decided to go with Jamie Dimitry - http://www.jamiedimitry.com/. He is a photographer that frequent travels to DR with 2 other photographers from Canada, because it's a busy season from them around that time, they don't really charge traveling expense. The other photographers are Phil Steingard (who we met in DR 3 months ago) & Michael Steingard - all 3 do really great work. We are also doing a Symbolic Wedding and yes the WC will perform this, it's just easy for us to doing all paper work in the states and just the symbolic ceremony there with friends and family. You'll be fine, just remember one day at a time and before you know it your day will be here and perfect. As far as time on ceremony, it totally up to you guys....most couples shoot for 5pm and go right into reception around 6pm-7pm sun setting time.

Hello girls,

Does anyone have any recommendations for a DJ other than DJ Mannia? I read a few bad reviews on them recently and on top of that they're very pricey, so I'm tryin gto see if I can find someone else that is good.

Hello Ladies

 

I am getting married in April 2012 at Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana.

 

Did anyone get the basic wedding package for free based on the amount of bookings you had and if so could you upgrade to the other packages and just pay the difference? Also, has anyone upgraded the photography packages? How does it work if some photography is already included in your package?

 

I saw someone say that they got a photographer off of the resort, how did that work and do you have any contact info? Did you have your pictures before you left to go home?

 

I have definitely had to give up a lot of control for planning it this way but I have no doubt that it will be worth it. I hope the weather is good. We fly Aril 21, 2012 so I expect that we will get married on either the 24th, 25th or 26th. Hopefully the 24th though.

 

Any tips would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Amy

Ahealey, It also took me awhile to get a response from the WC. I had asked her the exact same question, I asked her when do I need to put a down payment on the wedding package and this was her exact response. When you be here, after the wedding, the day after. This answer confused me and I plan on asking her again but if you get a better answer please share it :) Everyone, I just finally convinced my fiancé to get a DJ for our wedding. Does anyone know how the resorts DJ is and who the resorts DJ is ? Also do I need anything besides the DJ, I think I saw one price with an MC. All I really want is to be able to have the father daughter dance and my first dance as husband and wife. Besides that I am not picky. Thanks in advance:)

Hi ,

 

I also got a response from the WC..it just took longer than expected. She said my email went into ther junk e mail...hope that stops happening...lol. Her responses in red....

 

When do we have to pay the full amount for the package? When you be here, one day before the check out.

When do we have to confirm number of guests attending? During your last meeting with your wedding coordinator 3 days before the wending.

When can we confirm the location for the reception? When you be here during your meeting with the wedding coordinator.

 

I assume that means that we have to pay for the wedding package when you check out..... So that is different from your answer...Either way it is not before we leave...so that is good. And I would like to know where my reception will be before I leave home....Is that normal to not know whreer your reception is until then???

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you

    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
