Punta Cana 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Carrie here rolleyes.gif


New to the site (obviously) and trying to plan our wedding (on kind of short notice) for Punta Cana!

We have a tentative date for 6/29/12 at the Hard Rock (been in contact with the resort, haven't signed the contract yet), but I'm having reservations on going all in for this place.  We love the date and love Punta Cana, however choosing this location will be more costly for our guests, although cheaper for us.  I'm just not sure the resort is going to be what I have been picturing as the ideal in my head.  I would much rather stay at Majestic Colonial or Elegance and have the wedding at the Jellyfish.  Of course, this would not be the "free" wedding we could get at the Hard Rock, but really, have you seen pics of a wedding at the Jellyfish?  THAT is EXACTLY the kind of caribbean beach wedding I have dreamed of, and IMO, soooo worth the cost!  Plus, MC/ME would be about 1/2 the price for my guests.  HOWEVER, the other problem, the Jellyfish doesn't have the date available confused.gif.


My FI I think (due to family pressure) is ready to sign on for the Hard Rock, and it would give us the date we want, but possibly less family and friends able to afford it.  He has seen information and pics on the Jellyfish and thinks it's great too, so I could probably convince him to have it there, but then we compromise on a different date, which with the short notice ( >7 months), would probably be in the middle of the week...


What do we do?!?  Has anyone out there run into similar issues?  Any advice on what to do??

Welcome!  I think a lot of brides have been in your position and it is tough, but you have to decide what is more important to you guys - the place you want or the people you want there.  I'm not familiar with either resort but you will have a great wedding no matter which one you choose.  Hopefully some other members can help!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
