    Yay! I'm excited and nervous all in one for this new Journey I'm about to embark on! 

     

     

     

    I'm all in, I'm looking to plan a wedding in Punta Cana, DR but we haven't narrowed down our choices, there are so many places!!! We are looking into Sept/Oct 2014

     

    Anyone with help would be greatly appreciated as well as advice.... Thank you in advance!

     

    Also, I should mention I think I have a GROOMZILLA on my hands ha ha 

     

     

     

    Best Wishes and Congratulations to Everyone on their engagements!

          Thx for the compliment :) yes, Linc has a real talent for creating amazing photo stories!!!

           

          I hear you about the planning not being the best part, however your resort will do most of the hard part and "heavy lifting" ......so relax n enjoy the ride.......and All the Best!!! Cheers:)

                Congrats Girl!

                 

                This is one of my options actually - I'm still deciding ha ha

                 

                What did you love about it?

                How many people are attending your wedding?

                What kind of wedding ceremony are you having?

                 

                We are looking into Barcelo Bavaro (his choice) and I'm still trying to pick 1 or 2 more to see pros and cons - 

                 

                Sorry for the interrogation ha ha

                  Thanks girl and congrats to you too.

                   

                  My three options where Paradisus Palma Real, Hard Rock Cafe and Majestic Elegance. 

                  Paradisus Palma Real- the rates i got quoted for were a little to pricey (in my opinion) for my guests. Plus children will be attending my wedding and this resort is an adult resort.

                  Hard Rock Cafe - i wanted this resort because it has so many activities for my guests. BUT i wanted my fiances side of the family to get more of a Dominican feel. Im Dominican and his Guyanese.

                  And now we are left with Majestic Elegance. This resort became the "one" in so many ways. Its sister hotel Majestic Colonial is child friendly. All the reviews ive read about ME have been great. The communication between the wedding department and myself has been AMAZING. My WC is Sandra and she has been nothing but GREAT. Very informative. 

                   

                  My one of my uncles who lives in DR actually recommended this resort when he found out i got engaged. He said that i would not regret it.

                   

                  My wedding is March 27th 2014

                  Symbolic ceremony at the gazebo @ 5pm

                  Cocktail hour and reception to follow

                  We have 120 people invited. Im estimating 60-70 will attend with 5 children attending.

                   

                  Save the dates have gone out. And my invitations will go out in July. Im doing passports for invites.

                   

                   

                  No need to apologize for the questions. I had so many when i started planning my wedding. And i still do. hahaha

                    He's really into Barcelo Bavaro and is into the planning, Groomzilla if you must ha ha

                    I'm in it for the ride lol but I want to pick a great place. I received a good quote for Majestic Elegance so its not so bad.

                    We are prob inviting 200 and thinking about 75-100 will show. We might have kids too so we are looking for a kid friendly resort.

                     

                    Did you go do a property inspection?

                    What sold you on Elegance?

                    What are your wedding colors?

                    What package did you choose?

                     

                    I'm so scared about making a bad decision ha ha...than you again for your help and info!

                      Hi SoonMrsD

                       

                      We have invited just about the same amount of people. We are expecting about 80 to attend including kids.

                       

                      We have not done a property inspection and might not be able to do so before our wedding. My fiances schedule is so hectic at the moment :/

                      I had 5 resorts that i was interested in, between price quotes, resort lay out, reviews and pictures ME won. Also COMMUNICATION from the very beginning has been wonderful. MY WC is Sandra and she gets back to me asap (which i love). She is on point with everything and even gives me advice on what works and what wouldnt work.


                      We've decided to go with purple and green. I have 4 bridesmaid so im thinking of having 2 in purple and 2 in green (same dress style) . My fiance will be wearing khaki pants, white shirt, khaki vest, purple tie. his groomsmen will wear white shirts and khaki pants. 

                       

                      we decided on a symbolic ceremony. and depending how many guest we have the package if free. So that money will go towards something else for the wedding.

                       

                      Centerpieces are my concern at the moment. there packages seem sooo expensive :( 

                       

                      I hope this has been helpful
