It's been almost 10 months since we were married at PPC and I decided to hop on here to see how the weddings went for the "pending" brides from around that time.

From what I gather, changes in policy at the resort is upping the cost of current weddings. Even at a higher cost, I'd still do it again in a heartbeat!

If there's any advice I can offer to those trying to keep costs down, it would be to keep your decor simple & don't overthink it. The resort itself provides a great backdrop. You don't need much to give your location(s) a wedding inspired feel. Focus on yourself and things that will impact the experience of your guests (setting, food & music).

Best of wishes and congratulations to you all!

 

I remember back when you were planning your wedding! Wow! Time flies! Congrats to you too :) Wishing you a long and happy married life!

    Hi! First post to this forum but I have been following it for a while.

    I am planning on a love at first site visit for early December and having the wedding in January 2016.

    Any other January 2016 brides on here?

    Is there anything specific I need to be sure to ask about while on my site visit?

    Thanks!

      I'm a September 2016 bride and am probably a little too excited to get started! We haven't decided when to do our Love at First Site yet since we're juggling attendance at other weddings, but we can't wait! :)

       

      Oh, and I started a topic for 2016 PPC Brides: http://www.bestdesti...na-2016-brides/

      Does PPC require and/or have a resort photographer?  If so do they charge a fee to bring in another?

      If your photographer stays for 3 days they don't charge you.

      Congrats on booking!  There are lots of details to decide so let me know if I can help.  I went with the Chill Out Chic (I was going to switch to the Aqua package for the cocktail hour and decor upgrades but we have about 100 people right now so more than expected).  Since my fiancĂ© and I are paying for it...that Aqua package will not be happening haha.  We are doing the symbolic ceremony at 3:30 PM.  That is ok that you are doing it early so you will get light with your pictures.  That is the reason why we chose to do it earlier rather than later and I wanted the surprise with my finance walking down the isle instead of pics earlier in the day with him.  

      We are not using Pastor Mark but I am sure he is going to be great.  I loved the pool feel for the reception and my girlfriend got married there as well so that is what we decided after seeing the romantic feel and a hard surface for dancing.  The only tricky part is that we have about a 2 hour break before the reception since we are having it at the pool but I could not do anything about that since hotel guests can stay in the pool until a certain time and then they have to set-up.  Best of luck with the details!!!! It will all be great. 


      Hi GraceL,

       

      My fiancĂ© and I are flying in from Nashville but most of our guests are flying from Atlanta and Chicago and a few from AZ.  What about you?

      I have chosen most of the decor but still deciding on the centerpieces. With the romantic feel of the pool area...we are keeping it simple with white linens, rose pedals and candles with the Chinese lantern lights around the pool area.  What are you thinking about decor and centerpieces?

      Hi

      I'm so late. I'm flying out of Atlanta. I really want blue orchids but I haven't contacted anyone

      Hi Ladies,

       

      My wedding is fast approaching (October 11th) and i have 6 girls that are getting ready at the spa. I am wondering how much in tip have previous brides provided? I am assuming 15-20% but i know that we also dont provide tips aat the wedding so not sure if this applies here as well. 

       

      Thanks!!!

       

      Veronica
