I'm currently booked at HRPC for Feb 2014, but we are finding rates way too high for our guests. We're flying out of Toronto... Love the resort but pretty sure I'm going to have to switch. Unless I just move to a different month, April or May perhaps? How is everyone finding the rates for next year?

I am currently waiting for my TA to get me rates for the HRPC. If they are too high then we will stick with Paradisus Punta Cana

We are getting married in January 2014 and if you like I can inbox you our rates. There will be a difference because we are out of Philadelphia.

We are getting married at HRPC on April 11/2014. Yay! Rates are pricey but we really wanted this resort so pushed our TA and we got prices we could live with. Our choice was between HRPC and Dreams (apparently both resorts have all food tendered by USA Costco). Based on a friend's experience getting married at HRPC in 2012, the resort credit and the overall resort amenities we decided on HRPC. We are dealing Mia in Miami as well and she seems really helpful so far. Struggling with which photographer to use? Any advice? Congrats to everyone on your engagements and upcoming weddings :) Happy planning

I was hoping to do a rehearsal dinner at one of the restaurants, but I have heard that you cannot have over a table of 10 people at the restaurants and will have to do a private event.  Does anyone know what that ranges if you cannot get enough room nights for a paid private event?

Hi ladies! It's been so long since I have Been able to get on here. S2bebride I think it's 50$ a person for a private function I will check my documents today because I am having a welcome dinner the night before my wedding as well. I'm having my welcome dinner at the Eden pool and I'm also having a cocktail hour and a 4 hour reception in one of the ballrooms. I'm basically done with the planning process and my wedding is march 8th 2014. If any one has questions let me Know I have tons of info from the resort and from the decorations company. I worked directly with them because Miami was charging me double for the decor I picked out. I also did not chose the photographer on site I wasn't crazy about their work. I booked HDC because of their great reviews on here

Hello KerriAnn5! It's Barry again. Thanks for the guidance on the site visit you gave me in February......we booked our site visit soon after. We are going next week to take a much needed vacation and to solidify the final plans for our January 2014 wedding. We are both very visual so we have to go or we won't feel comfortable about picking a place for the wedding and reception. I have to admit the we were a little hesitant about booking with HRPC in December but since we have worked with Jennifer, who recently left, we have not had any problems or issues. I My fiancée works the Facebook wedding pages for DR brides and I do the Punta Cana blogs on this site and all we hear is....get there and get your hooks into your wedding planner. I plan to do just that!!!

 

We are also having a welcome event at the Eden Pool on Friday evening. We have been confirmed to have our reception at the Element Terrace but we are not sure if we want to have it outside But we will decide by the time that we leave next week. The good thing about it is that we far exceed the room nights count for the two free three hours events so that helps in the pockets.  We have already decided to not use the on-site photographer and videographer.....we didn't hear great things either. Well thanks again......I check in from time to time since I am pretty active in the planning of our wedding.

 

Barry

How are you ladies able to confirm locations for private functions already, my planner is renee, and she is extremely short and vague always! If you pay for a function, do you get a list of site to choose from vs. when you have enough room nights that it is covered for you? Keriann, how were you able to get an off site decor company? i feel that I know so little about the entire process and my coordinator is not very hands on or good at communicating

Also when is everyone sending out invitations, I saw somewhere that you have to have numbers confirmed and everything paid 60 days out, so does that mean replies need to be in 2 months before hand as well, it just seems so early to send invites out 4 months ahead of time?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
