Wedding Ruined by Incompetence and Mismanagement at Jellyfish Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Recently our excitement about having a Caribbean wedding has been crushed due to a incompetent and cowardly manager at Jellyfish Punta Cana. 


Previously Jellyfish has been one of our favourite places to have a special dinner (we even got engaged there), so naturally we thought it would be a great place also to hold the wedding.


On contacting management we started to discuss dates for the wedding and originally the date we wanted was taken, but after two weeks we were told that there has been a cancellation and this date is now available.  We responded straight away and were confirmed that this date was ours.


We then had several meetings with the “manager†and discussed decoration, menu ect... all seemed to be fine with us continually told that “ donâ€t worry your date is confirmed I will get the final quote to you soon...â€


After about 6 weeks and many excuses of why the quote has not been completed yet, we finally received it. All fine except the wrong date!

The reply when we question this was “well the original person who cancelled wanted this date again, so I gave you the Sunday night instead of the Saturday nightâ€.


A disgrace! No apology, admitting that she stuffed up and double booked, nothing and to the expectation that after 2 months of being told that the date was ours we should just accept her change of date, pitiful.


And the real reason for us losing the date?? Maybe more money was offered for that date? And a little more commission for her?


We are now left in the position with a full guest list who have booked flights (some from Australia), accommodation and now only 5 months to scramble together another location all because one careless, spineless girl couldnâ€t do her job properly.

Wow... that is terrible!


I'm very sorry this is happening to you. I advise you to spend some quality time with your FI so he can comfort you. Hopefully you'll feel calmer and in the light of getting married to him, no problem will be too big for the two of you to overcome.


I sincerely hope everything gets sorted soon!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
