Paradisus Punta Cana (PPC) Brides POST HERE!!

Recommended Posts

I meant that if you have the bridal suite reserved, and then decide you want to cancel it you have to do your cancellation 24 hours before the reserved date so you don't get hit with the fee.  Kinda like a hotel room reservation, that's all.  They charge it b/c they could've made the $ with someone else had their been another party interested in the room.

 

The Spa and the Bridal Suite are separate from one another.  The Spa is over by the Standard rooms, and the Bridal Suite is actually a room in the Royal area.  The Bridal Suite is just a short walk away from the beach, so if you're having a beach or a gazebo wedding ceremony its very conveniently close - they'll send a trolley to pick you up along with your bridal party and you'll trolley it over to your ceremony site where all your guests and groom will be waiting for you already.  It's really nice : )

 

My husband and his guys got ready in the best man's room.  It worked out well because the bestman had a suite in the Reserve section which was big and roomy so they had ample space.  The photographer got some great pics of all the guys getting ready together in the best man's room, just like he did of all the girls getting ready together in the Bridal Suite.  This leaves your own room nice and tidy so when you get back at the end of the night you're bed will be all done up with decorative roses, you don't have to worry about clothes and items being all over the place.  

 

The only thing is I suggest when you book the Bridal Suite book it for the whole day - they say they allow up to a 4 hour rental but that's pretty much the entire day anyway depending at what time your ceremony is - just tell them how many girls will need to get done and what time your ceremony is so they can space everyone out for hair/makeup with ample time.  Also, they won't allow you to leave all your things in the Bridal Suite once you're done until the next day  - they have to clean up the room that same day.  So...have one of your girls carry anything you have left over - your clothes, your dress bag, any hair stuff/makeup etc you may have walked in there with and take it to their or your room when everyone has finished getting ready. They can get a trolley to take them to the room and leave your things and then bring them back to the bridal suite.

They did tell me that it does cost 250 to book the bridal suite...what did you mean by "you have to cancel the reservation 24 hours before your wedding day otherwise you will get charged for the room" ? And where is the spa on the resort? So the guys should get ready in one of the other groomsmen room?

oh thats perfect!! I am getting married at the beach gazebo :) Just had a question on how you booked the bridal suite? I've been in touch with the spa manager, she sent me an authorization form but it was full of mistakes and grammatical errors. It also asked me for my passport number and birthday! I think its kinda odd to have to give that information to book the bridal suite...did you just call?

I did my reservation via email.  This is the email address I corresponded with:  agentespa@paradisuspc.com and I was communicating with someone by the name of Gelen.  I've attached the form they sent to me; not sure if its the same one they sent to you but I filled it out very early on and there were no issues when I arrived to the resort.  The Miami folks did re-confirm all the appts for me several weeks before the date, and when I arrived to the resort I did walk over to the spa and confirm my appts as well as with Jennifer and Miguelina - the onsite WC's.  Hope this helps!

We did a standard wedding invitation and included a line at the bottom, in small print, "Visit ((URL)) and see enclosed insert for more information" then included a folded insert on card stock with all of the details (travel agent contact info, how/when to book, that the wedding is casual, activities planned, etc.)

I found an invitation design on ETSY that I love and now on the hunt for appropriate paper to use and an online or good printing company to go through! All suggestions are appreciated;)
