Paradisus Palma Real ~ PICTURES!!!

Recommended Posts

India- 

 

First- Congratulations! Your wedding looked like so much fun. I'm sure you had a blast.

 

Second- I'd like to thank you bunches for posting your pictures. I actually looked through each album and you are right- there aren't as many pics for PPR online. I loved looking at some of your unique ideas- "escort cards" on the glasses? Brilliant! Too bad we already bought ours haha. I love the way everything came together. We were concerned about Apollo Foyer as a location because we thought it was small but from your pics- it looks spacious enough to accommodate our party. We are scheduled for our reception on the beach, but if it rains the Foyer is our second location. 

 

I had a few questions if you don't mind-

1) I noticed you rented the bridal suite. The fee is not too much and I was considering it but just wanted to know if you considered it worth your while.

2) Was your cake included as it was or did you pay for an upgrade for the extra third tier?

3.) Did you use the house DJ or DJ Mannia- if you went with the house DJ, how was the music?

 

Congrats on being a newlywed and enjoy your married life!

Hi...You will LOVE your wedding and the Romance department. I worked mainly with Rosa and she was amazing. 

 

The Apollo Foyer was actually perfect. It was a private, spacious and felt like it was outside even though it was covered. The only problem was we couldn't have our interactive BBQ, but that was ok. I was the only one who knew it was going to happen. 

 

So...The bridal suite was nice, a lot smaller than I expected but it was nice to be so close to the ceremony location. Are you and your future husband staying on the Reserve or the main hotel? Also will you be getting your makeup done? It was nice to have the space because the makeup artist came to me instead of me having to go to the spa, but that wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world. It was also nice to have a space to get dressed separate from my fiance and it made for nice pictures. My fiance used our reserve room to get dressed with his groomsmen. Bottom line not worth it of you have an extra room to get dressed in, after the fact my fiance mentioned we would have saved money just booking a room for the day. 

 

I upgraded the cake so I would have the third layer, that I think was worth it, just for the visual effect. By the way the cake was delicious. I really wasn't it to taste as good as it did. I also brought the cake flowers (purchased from Etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/65413106/couture-clay-made-to-order-clay-hibiscus?) the ribbon. 

 

DJ Mannia was amazing!! I gave him a list of songs he had to play, along with a list of artists I liked and a list of the type of music I didn't want to hear. The music was perfect and everyone had a great time. I can send you the list I sent him if it helps at all. You can at least use the format to help pull your list together. 

 

Hope this helps, email me if you need more material. I'm so happy to talk wedding stuff with you. I met some great people who helped me and I want to pay it forward. indiahaggins11@icloud.com

 

Happy Planning!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
