Hi Ladies, I am getting Married on the 9th May at the MP! SOOOOO EXCITED. I have stayed at the Hotel before (9 years ago) so a lot has probably changed since then! it would be helpful to hear from other brides getting married around the same time to me as to what they have planned already - what they have left to organise. im aware that we dont get assigned a WC until a couple of months before but im finding myself pulling my hair out at wanting to set things in stone as i have made a lot of decisions already! i do keep on emailing the sales person for MP weddings as i have no-one else to contact but i can tell im annoying her with my questions! i only have 12 guests at the moment so its far from a massive event, but i would at least like to know what i can book in regards to evening receptions/decorations for the day etc. Any help would be much appreciated!

I understand you can book decorations but no location, my question would be, how can you get decorations or someone to decorate when you don't know what you would be decorating. I think location is assigned once you get within your time and then is only confirmed ONCE you are at the resort.

Hi Zavina, I suggest you contact a freight forward or DHL, FedEx or UPS. It will be a nightmare for him to bring it with him.  I recently contacted the airline directly and they were so expensive. A friend of mine suggested that before I purchased anything. To check with a customs broker in Cancun. Just to give you and idea Mexico charge almost 500% duty on any merchandise made in China. Its that crazy. Good Luck.
Thank you!! I cannot believe that, it's crazy! I will have to see what the best method will be.

I guess I haven't told everyone but I am a June 12, 2014 bride and I am having a full Sikh ceremony with reception for approximately 80 guests (so far). If anyone in here has had a Sikh wedding at MP I can sure use as much advice as possible! I hired a wedding planner here who is taking care of everything and works closely with MP and she is phenomenal. The only issue I have noticed so far with MP is the absurd outside vendor fees and how much they will charge to rent equipment. I am hoping my wedding planner can work something out.

Zavina, I have the same exact concern. I'm going to try to DIY mostly everything in hopes that they don't charge us an arm and a leg to help set them up. If so, I'll make sure that they are simple enough for a family member to put up real quick before the ceremony/reception. I kinda figure that the beach and I will be enough of a decoration! HA! BTW, we are getting married 7/7/14. cheer2.gif

MrsG2B...I am having the ceremony at 4pm. How about you? Found a photographer, picked colors, have a DJ, and a couple other things here and there. How has planning been for you? Is there any issues you have been having? My fiance and I went for a site visit the middle of July and we are even more excited. I can't believe we have less then 9 months!! Time is flying. :-)

Did anyone get to try they buffet food options when they went on their site visit !? I don't want to pic a buffet option without trying it first. Also, while your on the site visit do they let you pick the reception location ? I cant dedide where I want to do the reception, I'm hoping for a balcony type terrace

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
