  1. Kissta I had 55 ppl at my wedding and there was more than enough space poolside. We had an amazing time! I think if you select poolside or the banquet room you will be fine.
  2. Hey Maridr, I can answer your concerns about shipping items to DR because I thought about this idea too. It cost $150 to ship one big box an it take 4-6 weeks to reach the resort because it has to go through customs. Once I heard that, I decided to give my mom, sister, and bridemaids a box. Keep the important stuff with you because one of my bridesmaids flight got delayed. As for your other question, we only tipped Miguelina $80 and the bartenders $20. She was very greatful. We used the gazebo area for our cocktail hour and the set up was beautiful. Our reception was pool side and we had a blast. We used DJ Mannia and got cold fireworks in our package. It was well worth the money...i must say. I used HDC photography and they were amazing and very professional. Thanks for the compliment...I wouldn't change a thing about my day! Continue to fire away.
  3. Thank you Maridr! Feel free to ask away! This forum has helped me so much and I'm glad to offer some assistance back. After you get off the trolley "that they provide", you walk up the path and it may take approx. 25 seconds (at least for me it did). I choose Beyonce "After all is said and done" I walked very slow because they have little cobble stones along the path and you don't want to fall:-( My girls came down to India Arie "Beautiful Surprise" and it took them approx. 60 seconds (I had 3 girls). Hopefully, this helps! I would recommend having music to get your guest seated in case your running late. I used the bridal suite but my hair/makeup stylist was a guest so I didn't use those services. Attached are two picture to give you visual. Good luck and happy planning!
  4. Hi Ladies, Every since I got married May 12, 2012 I haven't been on here but I wanted to communicate the awesome time I had in DR at PPC. First off, this resort is absolutely beautiful! We had 3 butlers and they were the best! We made one phone call and they were there to pick us up or bring us champagne, etc. I stressed a lot leading up to the wedding because I didn't no what to expect...please be assured that the romance team at PPC are the best! No need to stress like me:( They captured my entire vision. The package I had was the chill out but I used white linens and white orchids. I bought with me my accent colors for ribbons and flowers. I also bought my own sandboxes, starfish, and stuff for my guest sign in table. Ways to get around cost: I had an all-white attire welcome dinner with 47 guest and all attended the Gabi. We had the 20 sit together and the other guest sat throughout the restaurant. We didn't pay extra and the manager accommodated us with no problems. I would also recommend the bridal suite because it was gorgeous! We had champagne and orange juice...food and freedom from our guest. We had a great view and ample space. Lastly, the gazebo was perfect but it was very windy with the ocean breeze. I would recommend an updo! Overall, My guest had a blast and want to return. my husband and I loved this place and we didn't want to leave. I would say not to worry at all. If it rains they have great alternative locations as well. Perfect place for a perfect day:)
  5. Sure! I placed the rhinestones myself and purchased the boxes from HomeGoods.
  6. Hi Fabiola, I'm selling everything for one price and I'm trying to prevent bringing anything back from DR. If your going to be there around the same time as me I will be willing to work something out!
  7. Hi All PPC Brides, I'm excited and ready for my wedding in a few weeks however, I bought more than I anticipated. my wedding day in May 12 so, once I'm done with my items I don't mind passing along these great items. I can either leave them with your coordinator or meet up with you once you arrive. All I am asking is $150 for everything. Please look at pictures and we can go over the logistics @ kd.wedding2012@gmail.com 5 vases for lollipops 5 table cards 3 rhinestone sandboxes for starfish 37 Raffia Fans (optional) 24 candle votives with rhinestones
  8. @imazz thanks for mentioning this about not having to pay extra for dinner at an all-inclusive resort. I was thinking the same thing. I have 40 guest so we will work with the servers to get the other menu. Any other tips? My wedding is in May!

  11. Great point @ Maridr2012! There's always a loop hole. The resort is beautiful so don't cross it out completely...I'm pretty sure if you get the photographer a room you will gain additional perks (one would hope?!)
  12. I used hdcphoto.com because the offer a pretty nice photo/video package. My friend got married at PPC last year and the did a great job on everything. I plan on using the new preferred DJ at the resort to off-set some fees. Wedding in 4 months can't wait!!!
  13. Thanks Janet, that was so helpful! I am strongly considering poolside now! Everythings sounds stress free and dreamy...I can't wait! If you have a few pictures, I would love to see the reception setup. personal e-mail: kd.wedding2012@gmail.com
  14. Janet, Thanks for sharing your video. You made me feel so much better about my resort choice. My wedding is May 12, 2012 and I'm getting restless because I don't know what I should be planning. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated * Question, should I pick the poolside location for my reception or Gabi beach? I'm undecided *Where did you have your cocktail party? *Did the resort provide transportation from the lobby to the beach or did you walk over over? *Did you purchase centerpieces or did you bring your own?
  15. I plan on getting LA indian hair sewed in before I leave Philly and my stylist will be traveling to my wedding in DR to style my hair and do my makeup. All she asked is that I pay for her room and she would style my bridesmaids and my hair for my special day. I can't beat that deal! 180 days to go...
