Paradisus Punta Cana (PPC) Brides POST HERE!!

Recommended Posts

Yup I used Cindy but I booked her thru DestinationWeddings.com.  She does have her own company called Forever Honeymoon.  I did a group contract when I had my wedding facilitated by DestinationWeddings.com.  It was a bit of a pain in the ass because there is some financial liability to do it; but what I did was did the group contract for only 10 people which were myself & husband, our parents, and our wedding party.  That locked us in at a pretty good rate, and then if anyone else wanted to get a locked in rate at our price they were added on but I had to approve or decline their request to be added into the group contract (that was key b/c there is still a bit of financial liability with the additions).  But the reason I did it all was b/c we got comp'd things and kickbacks at the end b/c we had x# of rooms booked in our group contract (with the additional people who came in afterwards); that was pretty cool we got $ kicked back to us.  Also, when I saw that some websites like expedia, orbitz, travelocity and even the resort itself had a better room rate, I contacted Cindy and her company matched the lower rate we would see online, so it all worked out.  My sister in law actually got a credit back for over $500 because of that!  So, there are pros and cons with doing the group rate contract; you just have to weigh all your options.

It seems like whenever a hotel or resort knows there is a wedding prices sky rocket!

Yes, I've used Wright Travel and I'm using Patty right now. I'll say she's OK, but not amazing or anything. Maybe she deals with a lot of people every day, and that's why she's made a lot of small mistakes on things. I don't know, but I'm hoping she turns out to be the best choice.

 

Who are you talking to over there?

I started off with Cindy, but she gave me a quote with a promotion that was no longer available. So, I had my hopes up expecting to get that promotion and was ready to sign, but then she told me that she had copy and pasted it wrong. See they use the same word documents for each quote and they just copy and paste the new info in there. And, you know how that goes, you don't always catch everything. So, I stopped working with her and went to Patty.

 

Patty said they can book our airfare as well, but she won't help us find deals. She'll only book the air for the price it is right then.

I have tried to hire Pastor Rick York to perform our ceremony but he will be in the United States from August to December:(  He does have a Pastor filling in for him named MARK LYKINS.  Has anyone had experience or know anything about this Pastor??

Hi Ladies! I have a couple of questions that i'm hoping some of you former brides could help me with! Has anyone used or rented a photobooth for their wedding reception? If so, what company did you use and how was your experience with them? Price estimate? 

Also, if you have used HDC or any other photog outside the hotel's, to avoid the $1000 fee, did you have to get them a room for 3 nights or just for 1 night? And if so, did you only have to get a room for the main photog or for his entire team? My wedding is June 14th of this year and i know i still have time (5 months) to sort out the details but as the day approaches i have more and more questions that id like to know sooner rather than later :) Hope to hear from you ladies soon! As always thanks so much in advance!! xo

Hey ladies, I was wondering how many days fellow brides are going or recommend going to the resort prior to their wedding day. We are hoping to book our trip this week so feedback would be much appreciated:)

 

Thank you!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
