I definitely think it's less than $150 but the guests can come from 1 hour before your ceremony until the end of the reception. I may have a couple of guests who are staying at another resort (because they have a time-share) but they were so nice about it and told us that they would pay for their own guest passes!

Someone suggested paying for a room instead of paying the $500 vendor fee, but since there are 3 crew members, paying for a room will be more expensive. Does anyone know if there are any other options to grant access to outside vendors and feed them? (I will probably hire an outside videographer too.)

I'm bring my 2 photographers from the US so we paid for their rooms and avoided the $500 vendor fee. However, I think even if you have them stay at the resort you still have to pay for their meals at the wedding (which is pretty typical since photographers spend most of the day with you). But you should look into how much a triple room is for 1 night. I think for me, it would've been less than $500! Save where you can!

I just found out TBH charges $14 per person per hour for any additional hours over the 3 reception hours included in the $45/person fee. It really messes with my budget since I plan on having 100 guests and a reception of 6-7 hours. I'm freaking out and wondering if there are any other "hidden" fees I should know about. Any brides have any info on additional fees us future brides should be aware of?

They tried to charge me for the extra hour, but I said it wasn't in the budget & they waived it.  You should be able to get them to waive.  On another note Alejandro is no longer at the Beloved.  Not sure who is replacement is.

Hi Everyone,

 

I just got engaged in September and I'm looking to have my wedding reception at the Beloved Hotel in October of 2014.  I will have my hindu wedding ceremony in NYC in October of 2014 as well.

 

Does anyone have the email address of the wedding coordinators at the Beloved?  I've e-mailed them requesting information and haven't heard anything back...it's been 3 days now.

 

Also, does anyone know about webinars that might be available anytime soon?  I'm thinking of taking a weekend trip to the Beloved just to see the venue and rooms, etc. but I think that might be very costly and If i can do a webinar, that would probably be sufficient.

 

Any information possible would help greatly!  Thank you so much :)

there's only really 1 address: weddings@belovedhotels.com

 

but you can also try groups.cun@excellence-resorts.com (since the Beloved and Excellence Playa Mujeres teams work together).

Had a wonderful experience at the Beloved Hotel!! It was also our third time back!! Had a rainy wedding day, however it was by far an incredible day for myself and our guests!! We had decided on an outside vendor for hair/makeup. Well worth it!! Mayan Hospitality works directly with the resort, so no vendor fees!! I chose the onsite photographer and he was amazing!! Even put a little video together that captured the entire wedding!! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!  carrie.sota@@gmail.com

 

Good Luck and Happy Wedding Planning!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
