Hello Ladies!
I am back from my wedding at the PPC and left a review at:

Let me know if I can help any of you out.

** Also, forgot to mention in my review - we had a Civil ceremony and it is performed in English!**

Hi! Thank you so much for your review; I am getting married December 7 (just a couple weeks away!) and am certainly getting hit with last minute nerves. It is helpful to read such a positive review, especially regarding the photography since we also have hired Joaquin. You looked absolutely beautiful, FYI :)

 

 I have a quick question for you: how did you transport your items down to the resort? Did you check them? And did you use boxes, suitcases, or bins? Any advice, from you or anyone else would be REALLY helpful! 

 

Thank you!!

Hello kylieb! Good luck with your upcoming wedding!

We were so unbelievably happy with Joaquin's work - he is truly amazing and was such a pleasure to work with! Our trash the dress pictures are the best and I would recommend it because you are less nervous (they do it 2 days after the wedding). I wore a simple, short white dress as I didn't want to truly trash mine ;)
Thank you for the compliment! I wish I could relive the day. It went by so fast and it was all a blur until we watched the wedding video!

I had 80 people ... which meant I brought down A LOT of stuff for welcome bags. I borrowed 7 family members' carry-ons and our luggage is really big. That's how I brought everything down and we carried our dress and suit onto the plane. Be careful though - the woman who checked my dad's bag said his carry-on was too heavy and actually charged him $105 to check it - oh well!
Anything else you need answered, just let me know. But don't worry - I had such a wonderful experience and you will too! It is so perfect there!
Take care!

Thank you so very much for this review. Its calms my worries about everything. Another question, did you go for a trial hair do? Did you show them what you wanted?

Kylieb, I'm right behind you! December 8th! Soooo excited!!!

I am glad I could help 1Pris! I know it is very overwhelming, but honestly, everything runs so smoothly and the coordinators are amazing! Everything looked and flowed exactly as I had pictured it and don't know why I ever worried!
I went for a trial hair back home and took pictures. I brought these to the bridal suite. The girl who did my hair actually did it better than my hairstylist up here. She speaks very little English, so luckily one of my Bridesmaids speaks Spanish. But if you don't have anyone who speaks Spanish, it is not a problem. I showed her parts of my hair I wanted different and she did it perfectly. They do use a lot of hairspray, which really helped for the humidity. Plus, my hair was up, so it made no difference. Perhaps if you are doing your hair down, you may want to provide your own hairspray as the aerosol one they used had quite a firm hold! But my hair up lasted throughout the entire evening and still looked perfect as I went to bed. I was REALLY pleased with my hair! :)

Hi 1Pris!!

Yes our days are coming up so fast!!! I am so excited and nervous at the same time!!! I saw you also worked with Theresa, which for me has been extremely helpful! I'm sure you already sent your planner to the resort; have you heard anything back from them? I would really like to plan/confirm my welcome cocktail hour and rehearsal/rehearsal dinner but haven't heard back!! Once that is set it stone, I am sure I will feel much better! Hope everything is going well for you too!

Yes Theresa is amazing!!! I have heard back the resort regarding the invoice and sending payment in. Is welcome cocktail and rehearsal dinner included in your package? I haven't planned anything like that :/

Thank you!! Luckily I do speak Spanish :) I just don't know how I want my hair yet!! :((( do they have styles or magazines that we can choose hairstyles from? Or would you really recommend me to get a trial do at home? Also, did you say that you had the grilled buffet? If so how was it?
