        Hopefully more 2013 brides will join us - I have looked at the other threads for the Excellence Punta Cana and it seems to have stopped a while back. We are using Griselda and she seems good - quite responsive. I was ready to book and then she didn't get back to me for about 10 days which was concerning but finally we got everything organized and she's now holding our wedding date for us.

         

        The only weird things was, the reservation form asked us for our reservation number/confirmation - our room confirmation I suppose? 

         

        I don't know how you could book your room before you book your wedding - we have about 40 guests coming so I needed to make sure that I was choosing the right resort. Plus travel agents I've spoken to won't even give me rates for next September here so how was I supposed to book? I found that a bit odd. Like putting the cart before the horse almost.

         

        Anyway, I am happy to be now booked and ready to go.

         

        I would love if there were some recent Excellence brides who could share some tips. I think we're going to have our reception inside somewhere, but not sure where.

          Woohoo! 

           

          I am dealing with Griselda, and mostly she's fine, but I'm a little confused by her at times. Plus there seem to be all these extra charges she's telling me about, but when I read the other older Excellence threads, there didn't seem to be these costs.

           

          Also, does anyone know if you buy the Excellence of Love package with the photos (24) included - can you get a discount with the photographer if you decide to upgrade your photo package? 

           

          We're thinking of upgrading our photo package to a more expensive one but are wondering if we'd get a discount since 24 of them are already included in our package.

              I have a wedding planner dealing with everyone in the DM but here is the info she sent me on the photographers...

               

              Pricing:

              My understanding is that you wont get a discount but that you will get additional photos added to their packages.  I believe the first website I included discusses that :)

                Perfect! Thank you.

                 

                When are you supposed to book your rooms/flights? We haven't yet and I'm wondering if there's some sort of deadline?

                 

                Also, is it me or is it kind of strange that there seems to be very little Excellence brides around - not much activity here compared to other resorts. I wonder why that is?

                Excellence has promotional rates for their rooms until Oct 31,2013 depending on when your traveling next year. I would check out their website to see if your date is in the timeframe to save you some money.;) I've also wondered why there aren't many brides for EPC but they do have a ton on weddings scheduled there. I had to pick several different dates because all of the others I wanted were already booked.
