  1. Have they changed the price again?!? 


    I have emails, all from Lauren, saying the following (each in a different color):


    Off site guests will be charges in one of the following ways.

    #1-Less then 20% of your total guest off site and we offer an event pass of up to $25US +tx based upon your chosen romance package

    this will allow your guest onto the property 30 minutes before the start of your ceremony and they must leave the property 30 minutes after the finish of your reception.

    Guests must check in and leave a piece of photo identification at the front check in.


    #2- More then 20% of your total guest count and a regular night pass will be necessary

    A night pass will be $120US =Tx and they must leave the property by 12 midnight.


    What is the charge for guests staying offsite? The price of the extra in house guest fee of whichever package you chose +30% Is there a limit to the number of offsite guests that we can have? NO but guests not staying at the resort can only come half an hour before the ceremony and must leave half an hour after reception.  


    Our Resorts do not have an exchange between the 2. If guests stay at
    Paradisus Punta Cana they would still have to pay for a $30 outside guest
    wedding pass to come to the Resort to attend your wedding. The pass allows
    them to come half an hour prior to ceremony and they must leave half an hour
    after the reception.

    She said that it's $25 and they may arrive 30 minutes before the ceremony and must leave 30 minutes after the reception.  She said the same applies for the rehersal dinner.  That makes me feel a lot better because I was hoping to tell some of my guests about some less expensive options for them. 


    I'm getting married in April 2012 and was really set on booking at PPR but some of these threads I'm reading about them taking you for every penny and changing things up are really starting to worry me.  We were really hoping to stay under 15K for everything and have no clue how many guests to expect, so it makes it so much harder to plan.  It could seriously be anywhere from 50-120 ..... I don't want to get in over my head here ....


    Advice from any past or future brides?? :)

  2. I may have been a bridezilla to Lauren today...I don't know if I can take the contradictions any more...I swear, there is a different answer from each person I speak to.  I'm trying to hard not to freak out, and keeping my frustration from FH is not easy.  He wont be happy if I tell him im not happy with the wedding planner.  I dont understand why they make it so difficult to plan a desination wedding.  Is it that hard to provide us with the correct tools needed to plan the most important day of our lives? wtf.gif


    Sorry...I had to vent...I think I feel a little better now. 

  3. I've been so busy I haven't been able to get on this forum...I just received an email today from the wedding cordinator I am using and she gave me the same story about the differences in the 2010 and 2011 Aqua Packages.  I'm unsure what to do now as well.  My guest count is still so up in the air that I'm afraid to make any decisions at this point. 


    I have also been advised that the cocktail hour and the reception must be at the same location now.  crybaby2.gif


    BK: I am not using both, but I am having a Judge...Have you decided what time your having your ceremony? 


    Does anyone have photos of the ballrooms?

    I am getting married in about a year from now June 2011. I am confirmed in the Gabbi Room.

    Q1. What does the big day timeline like? Do you have your service and then take photos (delaying cocktail hour)?! What time did your service start??

    Q2. Anyone have a 2011 Wedding Calculator?

    Q2. Has anyone seen a dinner menu??
    Q2. Anyone have a 2011 Wedding Calculator? You should have rec'vd one with the confirmation email. Mine says 2010, but I was advised you use the calculator provided at the time you reserve the date.
  5. Sorry ladies...I've got so much going on right now I haven't had as much time as I wish I did to be more responsive on the forum. But I do want to say congrats to you too! I hope we can keep in touch and help eachother along the way!


    bkbeachbride: I will email you the calculator I received with my confirmation documents right now. Please let me know if you do not receive it.


    tracy0716: do you think you can email me the dinner menu? I would really appriciate it! I've asked for some options from the resort and haven't received a responce. My email is: noelandvanessa@aol.com

What kind of ceremony are you doing?
    I requested a civil ceremony (w/the Judge)...I checked my bank acct today, and the money has been withdrawn, but I still don't have a confirmation. Do you mind me asking what she sent you as confirmation?

    Wish you lots of luck with your planning and congrats on your engagement!
