  1. Hi Engaged 1230, We got married at PPC almost a year ago (whoa!) and it was amazing! Here is my review from TripAdvisor: “Perfect Wedding & Honeymoon†Reviewed May 25, 2012 1 person found this review helpful My husband and I traveled to the PPC April 18-26 for our wedding and honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect! First off, we traveled with 54 other guests, and everyone who is on here complaining must be extremely hard to please. We all had a amazing, relaxing time and we blown away by the beauty of the resort, the quality of service and how accommod
  2. My friend cannot see the check boxes to place her vote, please help!
  3. Hi PPC Brides, Please vote for our wedding! Cortney & Michael -- I appreciate your help! http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/83815/vote-for-your-favorite-bdw-real-wedding-2012 thanks, Cortney
  4. I had the same question when we got married and we found that apparently tipping an officiant is against ettiqutte, we did pay him directly though, in cash. We tipped our wedding coordinator, hair/makeup girls, and the bartender. Looking back we probably should have tipped the DJ and cooks along the buffett, but we did not. They do say that gratituity is included in your cost, which makes me feel a little better. As far as photographer goes, etiquette says says you don't have to, but a referral is their best tip.
  5. They do have irons in the closet. My husband carried on his linen suit/shirt and hung it right away. It stayed pretty neat, but I also had the dry cleaners press everything before we left. If you do iron, put a damp white towel over the iron, in case the iron is dirty.
  6. Hi Jenna, They do have hair dryers in the room, but they are pretty weak, I was glad I brought my own. No converter needed for outlets, everything works fine, I charged I think every electronic device I own down there. I believe it's free, you just need to sign up . I am not 100% positive cause all we did was lay on the beach. Hope this helps! Cortney
  7. I used him, he gives a great ceremony! He leaves right after the ceremony. I booked him outside the office as well. He gets there about 30 mins before start and leaves immediately after.
  8. If you follow Romance by Paradisus on Facebook they have a pic of the chairs outside the Gazebo at the PPC. They put them up yesterday and looked great! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152069184910578&set=a.10152069184330578.900568.448351975577&type=1&theater
  9. I don't know about you girls, but I was so excited/nervous/anxious/happy I barely touched food that whole day. My then fiance at the time had breakfast together in the morning, neither of us ate much more than a slice of fruit. I had like 2 bites to eat while getting ready, and really didn't eat much at the reception. My girls appreciated the food and champagne though!
  10. Hi LoriOlivia, I will answer what I can. I got the bridal suite and thought it was great. We all got our hair and makeup done in the room, the food was good and it was a great room for pics. I had 6 girls, including myself, so we needed the space. If you have a smaller group, getting everything done in the spa shouldn't be a problem. There are 3 girls who do hair and makeup at the spa who will come to the suite if book it. As long as there aren't any other weddings at the same time, you should be able to decide when you want your cocktail hour and reception to start.
  11. Hi ElegantChic, The old wedding planner at PPC is the one who told me about sand fleas and they are brutal! I am so glad I didn't have my reception there. A couple nights after our wedding my husband and I had dinner on the beach at sunset. It was beautiful but dinner finished after dark and we had hundreds of bites between the two of us. My husbands went away in about a week but mine lasted 3 weeks! Teresa advised us to have our cocktail hour/reception at the pool and although there were mosquitoes, I'm glad my guests were spared from the sand fleas. You also don't need to rent a
  12. Hey Ladies, I wanted to put my two cents in since I have seen all 3 types of weddings at my stay at the PPC. GAZEBO: It's small. For a small wedding they squeeze chairs inside and it looks cramped. For a larger wedding they have them on the grass leading to the gazebo which is tiny as well. As far as crowds go, this is a quieter area of the resort, as most of the activities are on the middle or other end of the beach. Building 30 is right there, which is where I stayed, and there is very little foot traffic as the restaurants, activities, and Royal Service are on the other e
  13. Hi Mariel, I booked my wedding in 2011 and therefore was grandfathered into the old policy where you only pay $120 for an outside photographer. Unfortunately they seem to be pretty set on charging this fee for using someone outside Arriciffe. People who have used them said their pictures came out well, but I know they are expensive. I hope you booked last year so you can get around the fee!
  14. Thank you!! It really was such a perfect day, I wish I could relive it 10 time over
