    Here is a link to a gallery of photos from the WC at Paradisus Punta Cana. It's a new link with almost all new photos.

    http://picasaweb.google.com/romancebyparadisuspuntacana

    It has several different galleries with flower options, reception options, ceremony options, cake choices ... and some extras (fireworks, fire dancers, horse & carriage, private boat).

    Fabulous for any of us PPC brides, but also great for any other brides to get soem ideas.

    She also says the cigar rollers (which we will have for our reception) costs only $10/person ... so that is more reasonable than hiring a cigar roller direct from one of the local cigar factories (those priced at about $250 flat fee plus $8/cigar).

      Ooh, thanks so much for posting these!

      And btw, how do you get all this stuff from the WC? She NEVER sends me anything (although it could be b/c I still owe her a deposit)!

        lol. She has been great at getting back to me lately. Usually a day or two is all it takes. But it could be b/c my wedding date is coming up sooner than yours? Hhmmm ... Let me know what you need. I think I've posted everything on here, but if you don't see something, PM me!

        How much of a deposit are you giving her? I told her I shouldn't have to put down a deposit since we already had so many rooms booked through our TA, so she waived the deposit.

          Hrm, I guess I just haven't asked for enough...Last thing I got was a spreadsheet of costs along with a "Wedding Planner" booklet where you pick all your selections.

          I'll ask her about waiving the deposit, she had asked for $200. It's not a lot, but I'd rather not have to hassle with the credit card authorization form and all that. I will send her the contract back, however.

          If you get anything else good keep on posting! =)

              Thanks so much!!!
              There are sooo many new pics- I may change some of my choices!!!
              Did she tell you the Ipod setup was 150.00?
              The DJ is 200.00 so I don't know if its worth changing for only 50.00 difference

                  hhhmmm... I was told that if I brought my own iPod connectors, that I could have the speaker/CD/microphone set-up just attach the iPod for no additional cost.

                  Isn't the DJ $200/hour with a minimum number of hours required?

                  I think we need to make sure we print out all of our emails with the pricing to ensure the price doesn't change when it comes time to pay.

                  I'm waiting to hear back about EXACTLY what is included with the beach reception set-up. is there ANY centerpiece included or is everything additional unless we bring our own? And the price for accent colors on the table linens.

                  I'll let you know when I hear back, but if you already have these questions answered, let me know!

                    I think the DJ is $200 per hour, not total.

                    I'm going with the iPod set up, as spending $6-800 on a DJ is out of my budget, plus most of our guests are older and couldn't care less about the music. =)

                      I agree about the price quotos.
                      The WC sent me last night a price of 150.00 and hour to rent the speaker sand stuff. and the DJ is 200.00 an hour and we need 3 hours min.
                      Our reception is in the marino restaurant- the linens she is charging me- I just printed out the invoice that she sent. Our reception is 50.00 a person but that includes open bar too
