The Hard Rock All Inclusive Collection…
– which includes resort properties in Mexico and the Dominican Republic – recently partnered with Colin Cowie to create a collection of wedding packages for ceremonies held on the properties.
Cowie is a South African television personality, designer, and event planner who has also authored five wedding books and is known for designing and producing celebrations for celebrities. His clients include Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, and many others.
His partnership with Hard Rock has resulted in nine specially designed Wedding Collections at a variety of prices so that every couple can find the right fit for their special day.
For couples on a budget who still want a picture-perfect destination wedding, Hard Rock offers the “Compliments of Hard Rock” collection. This complimentary package includes the ceremony location, white guest seating, a natural sand aisle, a gazebo and altar with floral arrangement, a bridal bouquet of roses, a rose boutonniere, a themed one-tier wedding cake for 30 people, domestic champagne during the ceremony, a wedding planner, breakfast in bed the morning after the ceremony, and more.
From there, packages move up in price, from the “Insignia Collection,” starting at $1,500, all the way up to the “White Rosette Collection,” which begins at $4,500. Each collection features its own design elements, and the specific inclusions of each package vary. Some inclusions also vary depending on the resort. For an additional cost, guests can also book receptions in each collection, with multiple options that keep to the décor themes of the wedding ceremonies.
Optional Wedding Extras
Each Hard Rock All Inclusive Resort features special wedding services and extras that can be added to a ceremony for additional fees. Example services include a Jazz Trio, small or large cake, maid of honor bouquet, Mariachi during the ceremony, and even a fireworks display after the ceremony. In addition, couples can take advantage of video and photography packages offered by the resort, as well as add audio/visual components such as DJs, dance floors, video projection, and more in order to truly customize their ceremony and reception. Prices vary for packages and add-ons.
Wedding ceremony locations at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana include two beach options and two gazebo options; the beach or gazebo at the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta; and the beach at the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun.
Complimentary Honeymoon Packages
A complimentary honeymoon package is included in all collections and features a romantic candlelight dinner, breakfast in bed, late check-out, two honeymoon t-shirts, a mini honeymoon cake, and a bottle of sparkling wine. For $250, couples can upgrade to the Romance Package, which includes two 25-minute massages, chocolate covered strawberries, in-room aromatherapy, and keepsake bathrobes and slippers.
