PPC Beach Reception: What is it like WITHOUT a dance floor?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married June 11 at Paradisus Punta Cana and we're having a beach reception. I have really been going back and forth about whether or not to purchase the dance floor. We have 37 people booked and most of us really like to dance. We have reserved DJ Mannia. Our WC Teresa swears that we should NOT purchase the dance floor - that we don't need it. She says that they get slippery with sand and that the resort with smooth out an area and it will be obvious where people should dance.


So I'd like to know what other people's experiences are dancing in the sand? Is it difficult? Will it make it less likely for people to dance? And have any of you booked a PPC beach reception without the dance floor? What was it like?


Thanks for your help!!

I got married at the PPC on 6-12-10 and had a beach reception. The location where they put you is right in front of Gabbi Beach Bar and you actually use the Bar for your drinks. It is cool because it is covered and has a Miami beach feel with couches and lounge chairs. What I did was move my reception to the bar. I only had 22 people though and it would depend on the number of people you had. Personally, even if I had a larger wedding I would have not opted for the dance floor. My feeling is the whole reason you are going there is to feel the sand between your toes!

    • 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?
