@shellyn  Thank you so much for all this info.  Your pictures are STUNNING!!  I'm pretty sure that's the gazebo I'm going with.  Such a beautiful spot.

    Hello. we are planning a 2015 wedding at the excellence punta cana, where we have vacationed many times.

    I looove this resort and the people there are amazing and since my fiance and I have been vacatoning there I would love to have all our closest friends and family there for our wedding. we're thinking Sept 2015.

    I'm going to be there the end of Oct (2014) on vacation with my fiance and future mother and father in law. I want to plan to meet with Emy for a quick overview of the wedding packages. Any suggestions for what specific questions I should ask while I'm there in person?

    I want to have the wedding at the EPC but should I be looking at any other possible adults only resorts in the area?

     

    Thanks!

    Natia

      We're getting married in PC at the Excellence on November 12th.  I'm starting to freak out by reading all of your posts.  I was thinking we had this covered since it's just my fiancĂ© and I (no guests) but after reading your posts, I'm thinking about hair and make up and music and photography and videographer ... YIKES!  It's both of our second marriages so we're not going all out, just a simple beach wedding between the two of us and a party when we get back home.  It's great to listen to what you all have to say!  I'm thinking I should probably call the spa now (as opposed to when we get there) to book something.  Right?

        Welcome!!! We leave on the 12. What time is your ceremony? We aren't having an at home reception so we are going more in depth at EPC. Our total guest count t is 42.

          I'm so excited for you, Jannelle!  We'll have to peek at your wedding on the 8th. :)  We're flying in on the 7th.  I know you'll have tons of family with you but maybe we should meet at some point for a wedding toast to all four of us!  :)  That would be so much fun!  42 people?!  That's incredible.  You must both be well loved :).  I can't imagine planning a wedding from a distance like this and having guests.  The more I hear, the more I realize there are so many people who do it!  It's crazy!  What time is your wedding?  Do you think I should call the spa now?  I should, right?

            Yes, let's meet like Monday!! I contacted the spa today for the first time. My ceremony is a 5pm. Where are you flying from? Most of our guests are flying in on Friday. The girls in this forum have been very helpful!

              We're flying in from Connecticut. You? When are you getting there? We were going to do a civil service. That's why we booked it five days after we get there. Otherwise we would do it sooner. What are you getting done at the spa?

                We are flying from NJ. We arrive 11/5. We are doing a symbolic ceremony. I didn't want to risk a delay in paperwork. There is a couples treatment, hair style and make up included in my wedding package. We are going to do the couples treatment but I don't really need the hair and makeup. My hair is really short and I'm just putting a flower in my hair, but I'm going to keep the appointment in case I can't get my hair straight because of the humidity or I can't get the flower to stay, etc. I also don't need the makeup appt because my sister just graduated from makeup design school in NYC. I asked them if I could swap those appts for mani /pedi, but they said no. I'll probably just get a polish change on the wedding day.

                  NJ?  Wow, you're close :).  We are doing a symbolic ceremony too.  I work for the court system so we arranged for a judge to marry us before we leave the day before.  There was way too much paperwork and it was so confusing and not cost-effective to have it translated and whatnot.  We're a little bummed about it, but we're really not going to make a big deal over it.  I guess we'll just have two anniversaries!  My hair is long but I have no idea if I want it up or down.  I think a flower in it will be perfect!  Maybe I'll chat with your sister about the makeup design school in NYC.  I have a daughter who may be looking into hair school and wants to go to NYC.  She's going to be a junior in high school, so she has to start thinking about it.  Who are you going with for a photographer?  Did you decide on a restaurant to do your reception?

                    Definitely, she will be there Friday to Wednesday. We are bringing a photographer friend with us. It really allowed us to get the most bang for our buck. We can't have a reception in a restaurant because we are too big. I'm leaning towards the beach. What time is your ceremony? It'll be beautiful and peaceful! That's how I pictured mine, but its starting to get drama filled.
