Great! I am getting married at PPR in march, cant' wait!

 

Any tips about reception menu?

 

And photography? did you hire the in-house company?

 

I want to held ceremony at the beach, but I have heard is too windy.. I do want perfect pictures, but if the wind is too strong, everyone will look unkempt..

@Brightbride,

You're going to have an amazing wedding! My entire family couldn't believe how gorgeous the resort was! Now for my ramblings about photos, wind and food...

 

Food:

We went with the Designer Menu #3 but added an additional Lobster tail entree option for our guests (we paid per plate for that). We had to provide everyone's entree choices in advance which wasn't too hard because we had guests decide with the RSVPd. Everyone said the Lobster was amazing. Heard good things about the Filet as well but I didn't love the one I had. We could have upgraded everyone to a Surf & Turf entree but I knew not everyone liked both so it wouldn't be worth the cost.

 

We also got a chocolate fountain but they weren't able to turn it on because the wind was blowing the chocolate everywhere. So perhaps it wasn't worth it, especially when we already had the plated dessert and cake (both delish).

 

Photos:

We didn't use the in-house photographers because they weren't really my style. I used Julia Eskin. She was super super sweet. We had to pay for their passes to get on the resort which wasn't too bad.

 

They have a few other ceremony location options but the beach was my favorite. It was particularly windy on the day we got married - windier than any other day we were there. I haven't gotten my prof. pics back yet. We were on the beach in paradise - wind swept hair is all part of the look, right? ;)  Several guests joked that the weather was not conducive to great hair but my hair was in an updo so the only thing that moved around were my darn side swept bangs. I wrestled with my vail the entire photo shoot on the beach. I should have just taken it off. You could discuss other location options for group photos with your photographer or consider planning to take some with the ladies before the ceremony.

Congrats on your marriage!  Sounds like you had a wonderful time.  We are looking at getting married at PPR.  Question for you.  One of my brides maids thought the resort charged a check out fee for house keeping, bellman, etc...  Did you have to pay extra when you checked out of the resort?

We paid through our TA in advance for our stay - but I don't recall seeing any charges when we checked out that seemed out of place. You had to put down a credit card upon arrival (they did a temp charge of 500 - just like many hotels and car rental places do) for incidentals but the only thing I recall being on the final bill were charges for the extra bottles of wine (some bottles are extra) we purchased at dinner and the room service charges (they charge 5 for each room service delivery).

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
