      cdc150 - We have not picked a package yet for sure, but we're leaning towards the Fantasy package (the 2nd from the lowest) because we privatized Luna Restaurant due to great advice on BDW :-)

       

      What about you? what package did you decide on?

          @cdc150 sounds beautiful! I can't wait to hear about the planning as you go! Aqua would've been our package for sure, but we saved a little money with privatizing the Luna in our case.

             I also reserved the Luna/Romantico Restaurant, are you having a large guest count? I love that it's facing the beach but still an actual Restaurant, have you chosen centerpieces yet?

              I was familiar with it because of you posting it on the forum! So thank you for sharing :-) My TA recommended it to us because we wanted a beach vibe but with a dance floor. I didn't know it was actually facing the beach. Even better!

               

              Have you visited PPC to see Luna in person?

               

              We have not chosen centerpieces. Do you have any recommendations? I saw a picture online of a reception at Luna that was upgraded and the total price for the decor was close to $11k. It had different chairs than the ones that are normally in the restaurant. I was told my flowers had to be flown in from Puerto Rico so they would be my largest expense.

                Yes I've been to the resort twice already, the Restaurant is wonderful and huge!, it has a sunken room where they always put the buffet dishes.... during regular lunch and dinner times, I dunno how it will work for a Private Wedding yet, but as soon as I get my floor plan I will share it with you.

                 

                I'm actually shipping my decoration over there..... they seemed way overpriced for me =/, I'm doing cargo shipping $75 a box, it takes about 6-8 weeks to arrive, fill it up till it spills lol, the Coordinator at PPC is Jennifer, she's fabulous!!, she holds whatever you send in advance until your arrival. sorry I have no recommendations, I just hate the way they try and get over with that.... the only think I can suggest is not overdoing it with the flowers, since it's just so beautiful already, you can get away with lighting and natural elements, ex: rocks, shells, sand. 

                 

                I'm going to post a pic I took with my cellphone from inside the restaurant over looking the beach, not the best quality but still, you get an idea.

                  Thank you sooo much!!! That would be great if you could post the picture, or I can PM you my email address as well.

                   

                  Your insight has really helped me. I agree with you regarding the pricing for the decorations, so knowing what you're doing regarding that will definitely help as I plan for my decorations.

                   

                  I haven't been assigned a coordinator yet, so far I've been working through my TA who's been corresponding with Teresa.

                      January 2nd, 2012 - Majestic Elegance - any advice for making reservations and such for larger crowds would help! We have a group of 40 booked so far.
