"The wedding was absolutely perfect"
Jennifer and Lauren,
Jason and I would like to thank you for all the hard work and helpful suggestions you gave us regarding our destination wedding at Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana. The wedding was absolutely perfect and the resort was just as amazing. There is not a single thing I would change looking back at it now.
Jason and I have only done cruises before so we didn’t know what to expect as far as the resort, but it far exceeded our expectations. I would go back to this resort in a heart beat.
The Dominican Republic was also gorgeous and even with going in the end of June, the weather, even though very hot, was still enjoyable between the pool, pool bar and beach in such close proximity. The only downfall of the resort was the restaurants tended to be very hot. Also, sometimes working with the wedding planner proved to be difficult. During our year and a half of planning our first wedding planner left and we were given another wedding planner who ended up leaving the resort about 2 weeks after we returned home. We definitely did a lot of waiting on the wedding planner to return emails and phone calls with answers to questions we had. The entire process of planning proved difficult at times, sometimes even questioning if we made the right decisions; ie. Did we thank everyone enough? Wedding details? Asking people to make the journey? Even though it was difficult at times during the planning process, we started to realize that we could only make so many decisions before we went and we could do a lot of the final planning once we got down there, and ultimately, this is how we wanted to share our vows. As far as the wedding activities, everything was perfect from the flowers, to the photographer and videographer, etc. After going through the whole process, it was the best decision we could have made. Not only did we get married in a gorgeous place, we felt such love from all our friends and family who made the trip to spend our special day with us.
We both would definitely recommend VIP Vacations, Inc. to friends and family because not only did Lauren help with the travel planning but she also become a wedding planner, and someone to help get advice on certain decisions. It was also so helpful working with Jennifer because of her expertise as a former destination bride herself. We had difficulties in the beginning of our planning while using a different travel agency, but through Lauren, found VIP Vacations, Inc. Jennifer was so helpful in guiding us to start the process all over again. There’s not a single thing that we would change about all the hard work that VIP Vacations did for us. Lauren is one of our closest friends so it made the whole process very easy but she also had the patience to not only deal with all of our questions but our sometimes difficult family and friends. Lauren even took time out of one of her weekends to come meet with everyone who was going on the trip and go over details as far as flights, the resort, etc. I don’t think things would have gone as great if we didn’t have her help every step of the way. We thank you once again for all your hard work and making our wedding the best day of our lives.
