  1. Hey ladies - My wedding date is quickly approaching, Dec. 11th, but we leave on the 6th. We recently changed our package to the 2011 Aqua package for the simple fact that it include open bar and we refused to not have open bar for our cocktail hour and entire reception. That was one of the things we felt we had to have, both of our families and friends are big drinkers. We had our planning call with Lauren, who works outside of PPC, but has helped us with all the preparations leading up to our travel dates, then we meet with the WC's when we get to PPC. In the end the change actually saves us $65, which is kind of funny. We are planning to do the Beach BBQ for our Welcome Dinner on Friday night, which will be like our rehearsal dinner. As I was reading through here I saw a post about lighting - the strand of lanterns is ridiculous, $300 or what ever, that's just stupid, but I thought I say someone post that we are not allowed to bring our own lighting? Is that correct? We were thinking of bringing strands of Christmas lights to hang around the pool since it will be dark out there? Thanks ladies and good luck with all the planning. Nichole

I just wanted to see because if he's not I still have time to find a new little guy Thanks ladies, Nichole
  3. ktnicole I would love to be added to Annas list, I was on the Itsfinallyhere list for December 3rd through the 15th. Let me know if I can still be on the list. Thank you so much for contacting me, I'm so sorry the little guy was lost, that's horrible.
  4. There is a company called ask me inc. which works with various Caribbean resorts, they have English speaking employees and they aren't the easiest to work with either. I think in general if people aren't up front about EVERY thing they it's going to be a difficult situation. The person we worked with at Ask Me, returned emails with in 24 hours and was helpful, but as time passes we're noticing that they aren't up front about every thing and I don't know if that's the fault of ask me or the resort, but it's frustrating. What I don't understand is how resorts who deal with weddings constantly are so all over the place? It's not like all of us brides are asking different questions. We're pretty much asking the same crap over and over again, you'd think they'd have it figured out better than they do. But what do I know. Let's move to the DR and start a company to help future brides!

  6. Hey fellow December Brides. We're getting married on Dec. 11 at Paradisus Punta Cana, we've booked our room and flights and we've had 6 couples book so far. We sent website STD's out in March. Our invitation are planned to be mailed some time next week, (fingers crossed) we decided to send them early to remind people to start booking and give them a deadline. I found my dress about a month ago and that's really where we are. We're still working on a photographer, but for now we're holding off on a lot of the remaining planning until we have a better idea of how many people are going. The numbers have changed drastically from when we first started telling people about a DW, now people who were all about it and saying they won't make it because the time of year is bad from them...we've finally reached the point that no time of year works for anyone so oh well. I can't help but wonder why people get so selfish about weddings. It's been very interesting so far to see who's supportive and helpful and who complains and makes things more complicated... Good luck brides, hope you're enjoying the journey.
  7. Great review, thank you so much. We're not getting married here until December, but it makes me feel more relaxed when I read such great things about the resort we chose. CONGRATS!
