    I got married there at the beach, the entire organization of my wedding ceremony was perfect, and my parents and relatives enjoyed a lot during the reception, at the Gabi Beach Club.


    I want to give a big thank you to all the staff of the wedding department and those who helped my dream wedding come true! special regards to Leni de los Santos, and Alvaro, my photographer from Arrecife. I will surely come back for my anniversary, to enjoy again one of the world's greatest beaches!

      Did anyone plan a Welcome Party for their guests?  We're thinking of doing the beach bbq...

        Micheleann, We did a booze cruise the night before, and it was one of the highlights of our wedding weekend!  We all met at the beach for a rehearsal walk through of the ceremony at 330, and by the time we were finished there, the guests met at the lobby bar for a quick drink before the bus came to get us at 4:30.  We were sailing by 5, and back by 8.  We paid ~$50-55 per person for the booze cruise, for open bar beer and vodka, and rum.  We had light snacks - fruit, chips and salsa, on the boat, and then had dinner reservations back at the hotel for 9pm (set menu with 3 options for dinner - for free).  I brought my ipod, and everyone drank and danced.  I have some contacts of excursion companies outside the hotel if you would like,  But i heard the company the hotel uses, La Barcaza is very professional.  I wanted to use them but the wedding coordinator did not reserve the boat in time, and they were not available.  message me if you have more questions!  Michelle

          I'm not sure if this link will work, but i got married on 11/18/11 at PPR. I brought my own photographer, and if you "like" him (RHM Photography - Cape May NJ) you can see my pics.  Look for his album December 19, 2011!!

            Amazing pictures Michelle, Congratulations. Thanks so much for sharing it makes a big difference to actually see pictures of other weddings.


            I noticed you wore a veil. How were you able to keep it down and out of the wind? I was going to wear a bird case just because I was afraid it would blow in the wind during the entire ceremony.


            I am getting married on Nov 11, 2012 and my modest group of 30 has turned into an unexpected group of 55. I know the packages accommodate 24 at the most and there is an additional per person charge. Has anyone found a work around for this? Maybe a private dinner reservation or something. The idea of spending an additional 3K is killing me.


            Thanks for your help brides!!

              Thanks!  Wow! 55 that's AWESOME. we had 42 and it was AMAZING!  I loved every second.  email me at mhagmaye@hotmail.com- it's quicker to get back to you!


              The veil blew around, but it was cool for some of the pictures.  i wore it for the ceremony, then took it off for pictures and wore a flower instead.  There was no question for me... my sister was married in a Catholic church with that veil - and all of my 4 sisters are going to wear it to their weddings.  beach or church!! :)


              i couldn't find a way around the extra guests... i paid per person for them.  what package are you doing?

                  Hey Ladies,


                  We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)


                  Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.


                  I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.


                  Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

                    Just returned from PPR. In short, it was awesome! Resort was absolutely gorgeous. I'll do a full review soon. Posting a quick pic of our reception at Olympus Terrace since I recall in my planning not being able to find a good shot of it setup. It looked so pretty at night. Setup is Aqua package with different chairs and added centerpieces and oriental lanterns.
