**Paradisus Palma Real Details & Discussion Thread**

Recommended Posts

Up late doing some planning and I think I'm confused. So lets say I have 50 guest (including 10 outside guests) and I'm paying the per person Buffet reception fee for ALL of those guests..am I to pay a 95 per outside guest fee on top of that? AND those guests still have to pay for a wedding pass?? 

The fantasy package includes 20 guests. Over 20 guests you pay 30 per guest. 

So that $30 for fantasy, $35 for buffet, and $95 for being an outside guest.-- A total of $160 per outside guest?

Someone help me figure this one out please.

Does anyone have the 2012 packages for PPR yet??  I was told by Diana that if you book a wedding for 2012 before the 2012 packages come out, they will honor the 2011 pricing but you will have the option to upgrade to a 2012 package.  But, I just saw that it says on the website that the pricing is only good for 2011 and to contact them for 2012 info.  I sent them an e-mail, but they usually take a little while to reply.  I emailed them yesterday to find out how to book.  I was hoping to have the option to choose between a 2011 or 2012 package.  Anyone have any info on this?  Let me know!  Thanks! :)

Just had my planning meeting with Teresa. She was super sweet (as usual) and it went really well. I feel a sense of relief...and a newfound sense of anxiety lol. I think that the fact that I'm getting married literally just set in right after I got off of the phone with Teresa. I have butterflies and all. 

*Deep breath*

 

yay I'm getting married! 

 

65ppl including Bride and Groom!....can't wait!

Now, my dates are for Feb 2012 which is still in the high season. If you're planning outside of that, you may fare better. I'm now looking into a 4 star just to compare before committing.

Questions for anyone who has been to PPR! confused.gif I booked Olympus Terrace for the reception, and Naos beach for the ceremony... Teresa had recommended each.  Is it a far walk between?  Can my granny make it?

 

Also... I bought battery operated 8" lanterns.. I was already going to rent the "strung" lanterns for above the tables... Anyone have better picks of Olympus terrace so i can see where i can use these things?  I was thinking i could hang them from branches, or edge of a roof, or maybe use sticks in glassware and have a few hang as part of tall centerpieces...?!

 

Any thoughts?!  Thanks so much!

 

I also read somewhere in the forum that cocktail hour has to be at the same location as the reception- IS That true?!?! SO you have to watch them set up dinner during cocktail hour?!  Yikes!

Hi! I got married in April 2011 at PPR. The Olympic Terrace is the main central terrace of the hotel - the place with the fountains and giant blue statue of a "person" sitting. That's on their website, and it's very nice, but not terribly private because it's by the main pool, and in between the restaurants, etc. It's very beautiful and there is plenty of seating, and the view can't be beat, over the pool to the beach, and the fountains themselves. I'm not sure where Naos beach is - could you be thinking of Gabi beach? To put it this way, the beach, if they are named differently, are all a short walk away - Gabi being the furthest, is probably at the very most 5 min. And, I might add that the walk to the beach is on a hard surface. There might be a couple steps involved if you are in fact thinking of Gabi, but I think your Granny will be fine - plus there is seating all along the way if she needs to take a break.

 

I did not have my cocktail reception and wedding reception in the same place - so i'm sure they can arrange for you to have it wherever you want.

 

I purchased the lanterns for our reception and they were $350 and they were really pretty and I just put the price out of my mind. If you have your own lanterns, bring them, but there isn't really a place to hang them from in the Olympic Terrace bc the whole thing is open-  there is no roof to hang it from, There are plants, etc, but i'm not sure you would hang lanterns from them. Might I suggest the faux candles? That might look pretty on the tables and then you wouldn't have to worry about hanging them anywhere. You might be able to use the lanterns at the reception?

 

Hope that helps! And, congratulations!!!

 

ps- My husband and I stayed at The Reserve at PPR and I am so glad we did. It gave us just enough privacy from his overbearing mother who wanted to spend each and every moment with him. She stayed at the regular part of PPR and wasn't allowed onto The Reserve, which was exactly what I was looking for...ha. We spent time with our friends and family but then could spend some alone time too and not have to worry about imposing family members. Just a thought. I thought it was worth ever penny!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
