    You're welcome! :)

     

    Oh wow, you're getting married soon! How exciting!!

     

    I felt the same way about the ballroom at first, but now I'm considering it...we'll see....I don't even know what it looks like yet :) I like that the resort is so central, that if our group want to continue partying after the reception there should be plenty of options in PDC.

     

    What wedding package did all of you choose?

      I don't know if my package is through my TA or with the hotel itself, but I had 3 to choose from and I chose the middle one, can't remember the name of it now. The only major difference between them was the reception. All of them came with the basics like flowers, cake, the ceremony etc etc.

       

      The 1st one didn't offer any reception, the middle one offered 15 head semi-private, and the 3rd one had 30 head private reception. Im only going to have about 16 or so guests so I went for the middle one. It's only $10 per head to add an extra person so I thought that worked out more cost effective for me. x

        Yes, you're probably right. I have no clue how many guests we will have since we haven't spread the word yet.

          we are doing the "classic wedding" and then having to upgrade for a private reception... we are likely going to have between 60 and 90 guests.  i don't think the gran porto does any group benefits though, unfortunately!

            We went with the Eternal Romance package and upgraded to a private reception on the beach. We're expecting about 30 people so it works out great.

              Wow! 60-90 guests!! I hope we get that many too :) I really need to secure a date soon. Still waiting for my TA to get back to me.

              Eternal seems perfect if you are about 30 ppl. I have been looking at that package as well.

                I liked the little 'extras' in the Eternity package... I figured we would've paid for some those anyways so why not get the package that includes them, right? ;)

                  Yes, I agree. I'll probably go for the eternal package as well. It includes your mani, pedi & hair too!! :) Do you know how much it is to upgrade from semi-private reception to a private one?

                    It's $15pp for up to 30 hotel guests so I budgeted for an extra $450. We'll probably spend a little less since so far we're sitting at 22 guests.

                      That is not bad at all! I wonder if it is the same price if you upgrade to a private reception in the ballroom instead of the beach...
