Plugs at PPC?

Recommended Posts

So I've heard conflicting stories on the electrical plug situation in the DR and specifically at the PPC. I know that the voltage in the DR is the same as ours, but do you need a plug converter? I've heard that they have only 2 prong non-polarized outlets, and many of our chargers and such have 3 prongs or have the one prong bigger than the other.

 

Did any of you guys have to use a plug converter?

I did not take nor need a converter. I honestly can't remember about the 3-prongs ... but all I plugged in was my flat iron, which is 2-prongs.

Ha Ha - You guys think of everything!!!! I would not ever have thought about a plug situation!! I am bringing my steam iron (only thing that needs a plug besides the phone!!)

 

Foxy and Otis - You gals are awesome and always have a response - its been the best wedding planning and journey getting there thanks to you guys, just want you to know that!

 

Lindsay - What day do you arrive at Paradisus? My wedding is on the 4th but I dont leave till your actual wedding day on the 11th. If you want to meet up in the resort for a drink - I can let you know the whole scoop on how mine went. I changed things around a bit because of the heat and working on getting the best of both worlds for the wedding and the cost is actually getting less and less.

 

9 days till departure!!!!! Yippy Yay!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
