SoonMrsD, I'm not sure what resort you're getting married at but at HRPC there is a 500 off site vendor fee. It may be different depending on your resort. Hope this helps.

Yeah I found out that I would have to pay $1000 outside vendor fee to have them at my wedding which is ridiculous!!!! 

Thank you for replying!

OMG!!!! I thought our 500 fee was high but 1000, sheesh. These resorts do their darndest to keep all the money in house. My finace and I chose the complimentary package at our resort and I wanted to bring in our own sashes (for the chairs) and line the aisle with luminaries but I was told it would be an additional 200. Needless to say I scrapped that idea. I was happy to know I can have programs and fans placed on our guestâ€s seat with no additional charge.

I am good at saying no, it's all about having fun and eating and drinking, minor details don't bother me, it's just the extra charges that drive me crazy lol

Yeah I'm bringing my own centerpieces and flower petals for the aisle. I want programs and fans so I have to see how to work that in, that's a nice perk.

My daughter got married in July 2013 at the Dreams Palm Beach resort and we hired HDC Photography as our photographer.  It was between them and another company.  Both took beautiful pictures, but HDC was less expensive and their photographs were fantastic.  Milan was an absolute pleasure to work with and did what he could to make the pictures as idealic as possible.  He was very courteous and such a professional to work with....and he is a very nice guy and goes with the flow.  The wedding was on a Thursday and we were scheduled to leave the resort around noon on Saturday...so arnaud met with us in the lobby at 10 am Saturday morning to show us the pictures (CDs) that we went home with that day.  About a month after our return, my daughter emailed Arnaud with the images that she wanted in her album and I just emailed Arnaud with the images that I wanted in my parent album.  Now...we can't wait to see the final result.  It has to be fantastic...everything else was!

If you are considering booking with HDC, don't hesitate!  They are wonderful.

 

We decided last minute to have engagement photos done on our vacation to Punta Cana.   From the start, Arnaud was so quick to answer my emails and very nice about the (million) questions I had.  Since we've never had professional photos done before, I was a bit nervous but Charlie made us feel comfortable right away!  He took us to a beautiful and more private beach and took his time with us. I thought I wasn't photogenic and was nervous about how the photos would come out, but they were all amazing!! Out of over 100, there weren't many that I didn't like.  Arnaud came and met us at our hotel 2 days later with the photos and was so warm and friendly. 

 

We ended up talking about our 2015 wedding in New York and decided we want HDC to be our photographers!  It is clear that they are passionate about what they do and aren't just in it for the money (which is not something you find often in NY!)

I used HDC for my wedding at Hard Rock Punta Cana on 8-9-13. They were extremely professional and did an amazing job capturing my wedding day. I highly recommend Arnaud and Milan. 
I love hearing that. I booked them for our wedding.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
