Paradisus Punta Cana (PPC) Brides POST HERE!!

Recommended Posts

jkweddingday...I saw aisle runners in the package pictures but I am not sure if that means they are included (they should be) But the spreadsheet shows white/ivory runners as $75 each.

our ceremony will be at 4 but we will manage to get some early sunset pics in and then our reception will start at sunset :)

Janet1480...Are you doing "sunset"?  I was able to move it to 5, heard sun sets there at 6ish.

Hi sorry I haven't been on here in a while. Things have been crazy! We are having a 5pm Symbolic Wedding on August 11, 2012 :) 

 

We hired HDC for videography or photographer! 

 

We are having probably about 50 people. Teresa said those packages are wonderful for people with smaller groups, but with ours being so big she said La Carte will def be a lot cheaper. 

 

I also don't think that includes the Aisle runner.

Hi Guys,

 

I'm just going to hope an aisle runner is included and will double-check when I arrive. I'd rather work with them on-site then via email if it's not.

 

I do have a couple questions for those of you who have stayed at PPC--first, do the buildings have elevators? We have some folks coming who can't handle stairs very well, so I wasn't sure whether I needed to request first floor rooms or if they all have elevators.

 

Secondly, are there any buildings you would recommend (or not recommend) staying in?

 

Thanks!

Hey ladies,

havent been in here in awhile.  We just confirmed our photographer and decided to go with HDC for both the wedding day and a Trash the Dress the next week (at the Hard Rock where we are staying for our honeymoon).  Arnaud was a pleasure to work with, and very fast to respond to email and answer any and all questions!  HDC comes highly recommended here on BDW, but also from some people that we know who used HDC this past August.  Even though it POURED rain in the middle of their ceremony, Arnaud was still able to capture some great shots and the essence of thier happy day. (although everyone was soaked, I sure hope it doesnt rain on our day...)

 

We also went with A la carte for the beach ceremony at 3pm.  Then we are having our reception on La Barcaza from 5-8 and back to the nightclub at Paradisus afterwards.

 

Speaking of the nightclub. Does anyone know what its called at PPC?  I wonder how big it is and if we are just going to take it over! lol.

The club is called the "Red Lounge" it's actually the Restaurant "Fuego" in the day time, very nice!! and it has like 6 cabanas inside making it very exclusive and posh, the dance floor is circular and fits like 30 people, it's very decent. not everyone goes, good spot for you and your guests, that's where we're going to end up after our reception is over.

Hi Ladies!!!

 

Congrats to you all!

 

I'm new to this website, and just started my wedding planning. I have yet to give a deposit anywhere, but I am really liking PPC. However, I'm VERY nervous about planning a destination wedding.

I've already received information from Lauren Harder, the Romance Planner.

 

I wanted to get some type of feed back from anyone that has been dealing/ or dealt with her. Like I said I'm very nervous about this whole planning process and want to make sure that I pick a resort in which the planner will be helpful.

 

Thank you in advanced!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
