      I have no clue!  My fiance had written to them initially....and since then (i'd say since october) I haven't had any questions to ask!

          I've narrowed it down to Paradisus Palma Real and Majestic.  Thought I was sold on PPR, but decided I should look into ME too since the reviews were a little better just to see if the rates are better, but I can't tell at all either LOL!  Glad to see I'm not the only one having difficulty deciphering this price sheet!!  The wedding packages that PPR offers is much more simple!

           

          Also, I have a question maybe some of you can answer.  I keep seeing people talk about dinner at the steakhouse after the ceremony and then a reception??  How are you guys working this out and is it less expensive to do it this way?  Do they set up a private area for you and your guests at the steakhouse?  And then what do you do at the reception, just drinks??

           

          Thanks for the help! :)

            Hi there!  Yes, I believe it is less expensive to have a dinner at a restaurant.  Your choices are either the steakhouse, or the seafood place...both set menus for up to 60 people.  Food is included:)  If you choose to have a private dinner then it will cost per head and you can choose to have it where you want (i think a few bars, a presidential suite, maybe some other areas).

            From what I have read, the steakhouse in particular is a little more private for you and your guests. 

             

            Our plan, if we have under 60 people is to have dinner in the steakhouse and then move things elsewhere for a DJ'd reception.  But yeah, i guess just drinks?  I'm not sure the logistics of that---considering that eating gives guests something to do.

              Hi,

               

              I was looking into the Paradisus too but ended up with the Elegance. My future hubby really wanted it at the Elegance. Their price list was much easier to figure out.

              Jamie seems to understand it well though so I would ask her questions. It really get complicated when you are deciding on private dinners, flowers, open bar, reception, cocktails, wow- everything gets fuzzy. The WC's do help you figure it all out but I just wish they would change their forms to make them easier to read for dummies like me LOL.

               

              I never actually compared prices for the weddings between the two but the rooms are more expensive at the Paradisus.

               

              I decided on the private dinner at the wet bar and the reception there also, Still deciding whether to do an open bar or pay 5 dollars for wine and beer only.

               

              Good luck with the planning :)

                Looks like we're all in the same boat :)  I'll have to go through what few emails that I have and go from there.

                  It's so hard to decide. even the packages they have - do i pay 500 an hour or per person? I am not getting a Dj doing the ipod thing so i have to get a sound system. I think its cheaper if i pay by person since we are only 23 and children don't pay for open bar, 6 in my party. I got the rehearsal dinner at the steak house but i believe its because i am paying for the wet bar. The italian restaurant won't take us due to space. I have to write my Wc to see where else we can all go for the first night (welcome). too many little details!

                    Oh i think it's per hour!

                     

                    I just started looking at the "additional services" page that we were sent, and you're right---it's crazy.

                      Jamie you can do the 500 per hour or you pay per person per hour. You can also make your guests go get their own drinks if u want.
