So many questions! Considering Grand Palladium LH 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!


I'm a total newbie here and I have so many questions about customizing wedding packages... I am leaning towards GPLH for a venue, but I suppose my questions could apply to most, if not all, packages offered by the various resorts. Any help you guys could give would be much appreciated!


  • Is it possible to receive credit for things in the package that we do not want? For example: Our friends own a photography studio, and we will have them take our pictures. Because we will not be using a hotel photographer or purchasing photos from them, could we receive a credit from that part of the package to apply to something else (champagne toast for more guests, upgrade the bouquet, etc)?
  • My fiance's friend is certified/ordained/whatever you call it and we would like him to officiate our wedding. Do we need to have a local minister perform the ceremony?
  • When do we need to know the number of guests? Before we put down a deposit or sometime later during the planning process?


I think that's all I have - for now! Again, any tips or advice you could throw my way would help so much!

Hello! My resort is different from yours but maybe their policies are similar. I would email your coordinator there(even if you haven't booked your wedding) 1.no credit at our resort, says it right there in the fine print. We decided to use the resort photog for our welcome dinner 2.the answer we got was no. If its a legal ceremony it must be preformed by their judge. Symbolic ceremony, yea we could bring our own. 3. 99 percent likely no you dont need to know. If your package includes twenty people and your guest list is greater than that, you'll prob pay that difference like the day before the wedding or something

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
