2013 Excellence Punta Cana brides!?!?!?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!! 

What is everyone doing for music? We were hoping to put together our own iPod playlist for the reception.  However, they stated that it would cost $380 for the use of the speakers during the reception.  Is anyone bringing speakers or any other ideas?! 

 

How about wearing shoes during your beach ceremony....has anyone gotten their feet scorched!?

We're bringing a Bose speaker with us and doing an ipod playlist. We'll probably have a guest be the MC so that we can have smooth transitions.

 

I don't recall it being $380 for the speakers, what if you just want to use them for the ceremony?

 

Wearing flat sandals for the ceremony!

Hello ladies. We are booking over 20 rooms with the excellence, although separately as some folks will be flying in from different places. Did any of you get a discount or upgrade on your bride and groom room? I know that you get the smallest wedding package free (worth $850) but I did feel that they would be more generous if you were bringing a lot of guests. Even to throw something in fr free like a welcome dinner, but nothing! Am I being unreasonable? I just keep seeing all these deals where the bride and groom stay for free and am wondering if we got shafted.

Hi All, We are looking at Nov 2014. We will be visiting this Nov to be sure. I'm working with a travel agent to be sure we get good deals and upgrades, etc.

Does anyone have the cake catalog?

I'll be checking back for your feedback after your weddings!

We are also getting married at Excellence on October 26, 2013. Seems like the date to have, since someone in my bridal party met a group going down for a wedding that week as well. Can't wait!

Hi Ladies - anyone still following this thread that got married at the Excellence Punta Cana this year or is about to?  I am starting to plan a wedding there and would appreciate it immensely if I could chat with any of you regarding your experience!

We've been to this resort for vacation before and LOVED it so I am confident that it can be wonderful but I am finding that the communication is a bit inconsistent from the WCs there.

Look forward to hearing from some of you!

How much time did you ladies give yourself for planning and to give your guests a Save the Date?  Sounds like you don't need much time to plan with Excellence as it's mostly done two months prior.  Did anyone give their guests about a 6 month notice and have a good showing?

 

thank you!

I'd very  much appreciate past Excellence PC brides coming back and letting us know how their wedding was.  I'm in the process of booking for Jan 2015 and have so many questions!

I am hoping to book for 12-13-14 I noticed they have changed their photographer to Beach Wedding Studio but since I had seen so many beautiful pictures taken with the old photographer (Photo Souvenir I believe) I inquired what the cost would be to have them take the pictures. it was a $500 fee to the Resort and you also have to pay for a day pass for the photographer(s) - I think im better off getting a package from their photographer! For any brides that already went - what is your suggestion about what to order for pictures? also, do they play music for a beach wedding? we kind of have "walk in" song and "walk out" songs - but I don't think we will be bringing along any speakers....

    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
