    Janet thanks so much as well as everyone else, it's so rare to find genuinely helpful people online! If we have the reception at poolside or the garden we would still be able to bring in a dj as well as dance floor? If so that's great! Has anyone seen poolside or garden reception pics? I'm getting so excited about Paradisus being a possibility after getting some answers from you girls! it's slot easier than emailing them.

        My pleasure :) glad i/we could help :)

         

        I am having a poolside set up and having Dj Mania and dance floor :)

         

        def have a look at the link Miss Sunshyne provided...all the pics and options are there. I was originally going Beach and then changed my mind and picked poolside based on the pics :) it looks romantic and private.

         

        when is your wedding date?

          Im actually an early planner as we are planning to have our wedding August 2013. We are hoping to do a site visit early next year as well as a few other resorts, Majestic Elegance, as well as Melia. I'm torn between Paradisus, and Majestic Elegance though :(

            Thats great that you are planning ahead...gives you tons of time to get everything you dream of. no rushing :)

             

            I have been to both. in 2009 i was at PPC and Last year my friend got married at Majestic Elegance in January and i was the maid of honor. Although a beautiful place, i felt that for the price (ME was more expensive then PPC at the time) i felt that PPC blew Majestic out of the water. PPC is a resort that takes your breath away, its absolutely beautiful and in touch with nature which i loved. Majestic was more about the pretty structures. PPC is also MUCH large so depending on your preference this may or may not sway you. Majestic is easy to get around and your guests will usually all be at the same place where PPC is more spacious so you may not always see everyone. Since i had been to PPC and lots of other resorts it was a no brainer for me to pick PPC. but everyone is different and has different tastes so you need to find the resort that offers you what you are hoping for the most. Make yourself a check list :)

              Hey ladies, wow I haven't been on all weekend and had 14 new posts!! :) I worked on my STD's all weekend and I am almost done finally! They are turning out awesome!!

               

              As for the the crabs and sand fleas.. Sorry to have scared some people but I didn't think of that at all until I talked to Teresea. She is def awesome and very helpful! We changed our reception of the pool side which is gorgous and very romantic!

              Above is different pics of the pool side reception. She told me depending on the size of your party, there are many different spots about the pool that you can have the reception/bar/dj

               

              We are getting married August 11,2012!

                Hello,

                This is my first post on this site, but I have been reading faithfully for the past few months. I got engaged in March, and we will be getting married in November (only 3 months- ahh!) I want to thank everyone for being so open and helpful about their experiences with planning and executing the wedding. It has helped calm my major anxiety! I chose the Chill out Chic package, and we will be having our reception poolside. I have a couple questions, and would love some input. Has anyone had a reception poolside? Would we need additional lighting? Also, did anyone use the resort's centerpieces? We were thinking of bringing our own, but I don't know if it would be more expensive to lug all of the pieces down with us. Finally, with the ceremony on the beach, is it a good idea to get the additional beach floral decor? Or is the basic set-up nice enough on it's own? Thanks!!

                  I haven't gotten married there but I do know that Tersea said that they won't use your lighting you bring due to a fire hazard. They have all the lighting you can prob dream of I am sure or they can get it from an outside vendor. The centerpieces are up to you, just depends on what you want. For the beach ceremony I honestly don't think you need to add anything extra to the Chill out Chic package. I mean you are only going to be out there shortly! We are doing our reception poolside as well. It looks absolutely beautiful!! I actually posted pics of it above if you didn't see it.

                   

                  Do you have their Picasa photo link?? That shows different ideas you can use.

                    Hey Katy41500, what's your wedding date?, mine is 11/12/11. I know of another bride getting married the same day as I, and I'm sure there will be atleast two weddings on 11/11/11.

                      I'm getting married on November 3rd- we'll be getting there on the 1st, and staying through the weekend. I can't believe summer is almost over and November is coming so soon! Deesanders33, thanks for the info! I took a look at the picasa photo link, and I think the beach set-up will be sufficient. What are you ladies doing for welcome bags for your guests? My mom wants to start getting supplies, but I'm not sure how much stuff should go in them. Thanks again!!
