    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.

            Oh yeah, I forgot that I did charge my camera battery too.

              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!!
