Yeah, the Hard Rock is one of the pricier resorts... we were looking at it because the pictures and reviews looked great but we don't want to ask our friends and family to fork out that kind of moolah, so we looked elsewhere. I'm not sure if you are located in the US or Canada... travel arrangements work differently... first off is to get a travel agent and see about getting quotes. Spread the word to those you want to invite to give them notice... we started our wedding planning in October, got quotes in November, and chose the resort in December. Now we have to wait until the spring to book anything because here (in Canada) flight schedules won't be posted until then, and the tour operator won't let us leave a deposit before then. I wish you the best of luck in your planning!

My original plan was to marry at the Hard Rock and yes it's beautiful but also pricey. My friends who are Dominican informed me to have my wedding on a resort that would give you the feeling of being in carribean. Hard Rock is too Americanized. I will marry at the Ilberostar Bavaro, it was 400 dollars cheaper for each room oppose to the Hard Rock and it's beautiful! I booked my Wedding reservations last May and will marry this July. I have 18 rooms with 2 or 3 guest in each. Ilberostar Bavaro's packages are inexpensive verses the Hard Rock. So, do some research before booking with the Hard Rock. Punta Cana has many beautiful resorts to chose from.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
