Maybe you should go w paradisus then since you are on a time crunch? Seems like most of the planning happens once you get to the resort though so maybe it doesn't matter

Thanks everyone! Yes the panic is starting to set in. I've been waiting for someone to contact me from Karisma. Still nothing. 

 

Looks like I'm going to have to switch hotels. Nothing is booked yet. The Paradisus has been been great, and by great, I mean responding to my emails! ;)

Paradisus is a beautiful hotel. You can't go wrong with them:)

Hi. I booked my date a year in advance by directly contacting the hotel as you are doing. Then I contacted Travel Agents to get group rates after the fact. I too had narrowed down the search- 3 hotels in fact, just in case I had problems. I had one hotel that never returned any of my 4 emails so I crossed them off the list. Have you tried calling the hotel's wedding planner? I actually had to called and I spoke briefly to her. I got my date booked and she emailed me necessary info afterwards.  

It's extreme but if you really want that spot, you may have to do that first. As I was told, wedding planners are not sitting at a desk all day and are on the grounds a lot of the time. A phone call will get their attention as they receive many emails daily. Then you should email as this is the best way to correspond with them. Once I spoke with her about my date, I have had no problems with email correspondence since.

 

Good Luck & Congrats!

@@LillCee We actually just shot a wedding at Paradisus yesterday. :)

 

ADVICE if you would like a professional photographer... be sure to talk to the hotel's wedding coordinator about having an outside professional photographer & how much the fee will be BEFORE booking. Also get the quote in writing. Our couple did this and had no problem.

 

Happy planning!!!

So I'm still waiting on some group rates for the Paradisus. I have now switched gears and love this hotel. The reviews seem to be great and I like that it's pretty new. I don't want to have to call, just to get your attention. I sent numerous emails to Karisma. 

 

I went dress shopping yesterday. Went to 2 bridal salons. I think I found my dress!!!!! It's gorgeous, within my budget and most importantly I can get it on time!!! I'm still going to check out a couple more tomorrow, just to me 

 

I may not have a wedding venue, but I'm about to say yes to the dress! haha.

    • 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!!
