Paradisus Punta Cana (PPC) Brides POST HERE!!

Recommended Posts

Hi cdc :) 

 

I hosted a welcome dinner the day after we got there and we handed them out to everyone that evening as we thanked them all for being there with us...it worked well that way and everyone shared in the excitement together as they looked at all their stuff :)

I'm glad you were able to get the incentive. It really helps out alot. I just confirmed my photographer. I know someone here in the states that take beautiful pictures. Her style is more of a journalistic photography which is awesome. So now I can get all the pictures I want. We are flying her down and using one of our free rooms for her stay. So we will be saving alot of money this way.

 

I think handing the bags out at dinner is a nice idea as well. I was thinking about having them in delivered to the rooms before they get there, so when they enter they have the nice surprise. But then again maybe I can incorporate a nice personalized gift giving time slot to the welcome cocktail party we are planning will do the trick as well.

 

My FI was talking to one of our co-workers that is getting married this month, the traditional way. And he told him that " if he could do it all over again he would have a destination wedding." I don't know about you guys but it make me feel even better about my choice to get married this way.cheer2.gif

For any brides that were married at PPC, did you hire the Caribbean Trio?  I'd like to hire them for the cocktail hour, in lieu of hiring a full band for the reception (we're just doing a dj).  Can anyone provide a review on the trio?

Wanted to give a heads up!

 

Our wedding is on October 27, 2012. My brothers girlfriend lives in DR, so I will be shipping a box FULL of stuff.

 

To save money, I'm planning on shipping-

-Ivory Table Linens for 5-7 tables

-Sage/Willow green table runners for 5-7 tables

-Several cylinder vases with latex flowers to do submerged flower centerpieces

-Decorations for gazebo

 

I wanted to put the word out! If there are any brides getting married soon after Oct 27th and are interested in purchasing any of the items, let me know! I'm sure we could work something out and I could leave the stuff at the resort for you.

 

I'm still in early planning but thought it would be great to touch base with a bride that may be interested so you won't have to stress taking some items I may already have there! I have inspiration pics I could send = )

@imazz thanks for mentioning this about not having to pay extra for dinner at an all-inclusive resort. I was thinking the same thing. I have 40 guest so we will work with the servers to get the other menu. Any other tips? My wedding is in May!

Have any of the PPC brides customized a wedding cake?  I have a wedding cake included in my package and I think the standard flavors are vanilla or chocolate; but I'd love to do a filling of rasberry or passion fruit or maybe even mango, something to keep with the tropical venue.  Any thoughts/ideas/feedback?
