Paradisus Punta Cana (PPC) Brides POST HERE!!

Recommended Posts

SimplenSweet,

 

Thank you for providing this. I am having a hard time securing transportation from the airport to the resort. Do you have a company you can refer?

 

Also, I read in another thread regarding a $500 credit card hold per room at check-in time. Is this true?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Denise

Hey Denise- I used a company through expedia when I booked... Blue Travel or something? not sure..... also I was not aware of the $500 charge.. I'm sure everyone would have been talking about it if so but I never heard anything about that.

Hey Denise,

I have always used the official cabs from the airport to get to hotel in Punta Cana.

There is a set fee ($35 to Paradisus Punta Cana) and they hold 4-6 people with luggage.

When you get to the airport and pass through customs and go to the right you see a large white sign with every hotel listed and a set feed.

The cabs accept USD.

Never had a problem.

 

However, if you want to book in advance, try going thru the hotel directly (not the miami Office)

Below is the contact and the fares I was quoted:

 

Genue Jimenez "  reservas1.melia.caribe@paradisuspalmareal.com

 

 

PRIVATE ROUND TRIP RATES

PUJ -HOTEL      US$.45.00 EACH WAY, FROM 1 TO 6 PERSONS.

PUJ -HOTEL      US$.89.00 EACH WAY, FROM 7 TO 10 PERSONS.

PUJ -HOTEL      US$.133.00 EACH WAY, FROM 10 TO 22 PERSONS.

As i get further into the planning process more questions arise! 

 

Can anyone recommend a good website for travel information etc for our guests?

 

Any recommendations on beautiful yet affordable invitations?

 

Did you put travel information etc in the invitation (my cousin who also had a destination wedding had a formal invite and then included a page of travel information etc) with it or does it work better to direct people to a web site.

 

last question for now anyway... does anyone have any recommendations on a good travel agent or company to handle the room reservations etc?

 

Thank you girls for all of your advice and help with this daunting process!

Hi Katie.  I don't have answers for all your questions but here are some:

 

I did a website thru TheKnot with all travel info, and although it was pretty to look at and initially was viewed alot when I sent out my save the dates (website adrs was printed on the STD), most folks still forgot what they were supposed to do when it came time to do their booking.  Also, we had several folks in our group that are not internet-savvy - my parents, some of the older folks etc.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
