    Was married this Saturday. The short of it: Romance Team = AWESOME, especially Beatriz. HDC Photography, especially Milan = EXCELLENT!!! DJ & MC = no problems or issues, did everything we asked for (& we asked for A LOT). Food was also great; all the guests raved. We did make a last minute call to move the reception to a covered area & so glad we did. The heavens opened up 20 minutes before the end of the reception. It was quite warm at the new location but they brought in a bunch of fans to cool things off. If anyone had any specific questions I might be able to answer, please message me - not going to clog up the postings with responses.

        Hi Ladies!!!

         

        I haven't posted in while but wanted to share the following...

         

        My husband and I got married last year at PPC on October 27th and it was beautiful! Before deciding on having our wedding at PPC we were considering the Paradisus Cancun. (We had never visited either resort before making our decision)

         

        For our 1 year anniversary we used our complementary free nights and went to the Paradisus in Cancun last weekend.

         

        I just wanted to let you ladies know that you have all made an AMAZING decision in choosing PPC as your weeding location. The Cancun resort does not compare to PPC!!!

         

        I know how nerve wrecking planning a destination wedding is, especially if you aren't able to visit the resort before your wedding. I promise you, you all have made the best decision in having your wedding at PPC!!!

         

        I can't remember if I ever posted any pics but here are a few.....

              What made y'all chose Paradisus over any other resort. I am torn between this and the Hard Rock.

                Thank you so much!

                 

                Yes I have some tips!

                 

                1. I was a DIY bride.....I regret that VERY much. I made our save the dates, invites, centerpieces, menus that were placed in each seat for dinner, & I brought a lot of my own decorations. I thought I was going to save money this way, but after it all, I really didn't. And the added stress of making and bringing all the stuff with me SUCKED. The only thing that did save me money were the center pieces. I felt the prices on flowers was really high. (Not only in PPC but all other resorts we looked into) I felt it was pointless to pay for flowers that would be thrown out at the end of the night. I ended up selling my vases to another bride getting married the week after me.

                2. The romance team is AMAZING. I can't even begin to say how on top of everything they were.

                3. Room upgrades- They updated us to the reserve. It was beautiful! The room was huge! But...it was very very far from everything. Which was nice because we had a lot of time away from our guests, but sucked when it wast time to take a trolley to eat, go to the pool, or bars. You have a private pool and bar at the reserve, but all the fun stuff happens in the other common areas.

                4. Guest Rooms- I was shocked how nice the guest rooms were. All of our guests loved their rooms. My brother got a room with a jacuzzi in the patio (which he didn't even request).

                5. Bridal Suite- I reserved it for the day of. It was great because it was very close to the Gazebo where the ceremony was to take place. They had stuff to munch on and champagne which was nice.

                6. Make Up and Hair- The girls did a very nice job with everyone's hair and makeup so I wouldn't stress that at all.  Just make sure to bring with you anything that might help them with your updo. For example, I brought with me the "Donut" to do that bun I had.

                7. I do regret having done the ceremony so early. We had the ceremony at 2-3pm and it was very hot. Our guest were melting! So that's one thing I would've changed.

                8. Ceremony Music- We hired the trio and it added a really nice feel to the wedding. They played while I walked down the isle, and at the cocktail hour as well.

                8. Reception- They set up the tables for the reception exactly how i wanted and i was taken back when I saw it. It looked very romantic and sweet. We had our reception near the pool and everyone jumped in the pool after. It was very fun. We payed for the up lighting which I'm really happy we did. All of my guests really enjoyed the food.

                9. Photography- We hired HDC. I loved how the pictures turned out, but wasn't happy with the video. The quality and editing was not that good, so I contacted them and they re-edited for us. They were very nice about it and helpful. ONE TIP- Make sure to tell them ahead of time exactly where you will be getting ready! The photographer didn't know i was in the bridal suite, so by the time he found me, i was already dressed and ready to go. Which I really wanted him there to take pictures of us getting ready.

                10. Get an MC for the reception! Or get a friend to do it, but make sure to tell them what you want them to say and do. Our friend was our MC and it was a bit of a mess. For our walk in song they let the entire song play which was a bit awkward after a while. I thought they would have common sense to cut in after a minute or 2 and fade out the music, but that wasn't the case.

                 

                Oh yes! I almost forgot! We hired Pastor York for the ceremony. He was VERY GOOD! He made everyone cry! He was funny and sweet and really made the ceremony special!

                 

                Ok sorry that was long, but I never did a review on our wedding! I hope some of this info helps and let me know if you have any other questions!!!

                  I reached out to Hard Rock for a quote and the response time from the department was not good at all. I heard they were going through construction at that time so i'm not sure if maybe that played a part in the lack of responsiveness but that helped with my decision to choose Paradisus. Bianca, Lara and Beryl at Paradisus have been great to work with, they answer all my questions and requests within a timely fashion and they never act like I am asking too much (even when I am sending multiple emails a week regarding details). I am confident that my wedding on Jan 18th is going to be wonderful and I am so excited!!

                    [quote name="TeresaDR" url="/t/63931/paradisus-punta-cana-ppc-brides-post-here/810#post_1863455"]Hi everyone! We just booked our wedding for April 16, 2014. I'm so excited to start planning! I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for a travel agent. How did it work? Did you feel that it was worth it? I would like to find one that gives you kickbacks depending on the number of rooms booked.[/quote
