    I'm getting married in PPC and they allow you to ship before hand, I will be shipping via cargo 3 large boxes appx 3 months in advance that way it arrives on time, costs like $150 and doesn't go by weight. I'm shipping my decorations and my OOT supplies.

          Hey Janey,

           

          I've been planning with Jennifer, that was something that I had stated from the beginning when I was at PPC last November. I knew from the start that I wanted to ship my decorations and my OOT bags. She said no problem and that they would hold my packages until my arrival. I'm also gonna try and stuff whatevr else I don't have to carry in my luggage. I hate those luggage fees! lol

           

          I'm getting married 11/12/11... just a lil bit after you :( you must tell me how it goes for you! :)

           

          Where are you having your ceremony/reception?

              I am working with Teresa. She is hired by the resort but lives in Toronto, which is great and she is wonderful to communicate with, also very responsive! I am definitely going to send her an email and ask about shipping my stuff before! that would take so much stress off. Did Jennifer tell you how far ahead you should send your stuff? Do you mind me asking if you have looked in to costs?

               

              I decidded to do both my ceremony and reception on the beach. IMO its part of the DW experience. Of course weather may dictate differently so I will have a back up plan which i havent decided on yet. Plus the beach set up is so beautiful....have you seen it? What about you?

               

              I will definitely review when i get back :) I'll post lots of pics too :)

                They don't arrange shipment you have to do it from where you live. In NY/NJ there are alot of companies that ship to family/business in DR and although it's rather cheap it does take veryyyy long to get there,almost 3 months, since its via cargo-ship, they put it in container bins. I think 3 large boxes is going to cost me around $150 max.. I don't mind since I will be prepared for it (time).

                 

                 

                I agree with you on the whole beach concept, the ballroom was not going to be an option for me AT ALL... but I really am not thrilled about sand, heels and dancing lol... so I'm having the beach gazebo for the ceremony and I privatized the restautant facing the beach, I will be having almost 100 guests so I will make use of the space. I'm going to have Dj Mannia with the illuminated dance floor, and Pastor York doing the symbolic ceremony.

                  That is a great price to ship! I will have to look in to this. I figured it would take a lot of time to get there which is fine with me because I will be/ plan to be well prepared ahead of time. I really dont want to wait til the last minute to do anything and then have to rush

                   

                  Im not thrilled about the sand and not being able to wear heels but you can get some really cute wedges or flip flops these days LO...i'm still considering the restaurant at the beach as well but i think i will work it out to be on the beach anyway :)

                   

                  WOW 100 guests. Thats great and crazy all at the same time LOL I think i will have about 30....havent got all my RSVP back yet!
