    I have not finalized much with the resort its self. I have my date March 13.2010, Wedding: The Beach, Package: The Aqua: The Menu: Beach BBQ (but we are not have our dinner on the beach). No flower set up yet, but I sent her picture this weekend asking if some flower were included in the package or how much more it would be to have them. I know I am just doing the cake that is included in the package and bring down ribbons and flowers myself. We are not going to have a DJ. We are just going to use our IPOD/CD.

        Look forward to planning with you all!

          I've read in a lot of the reviews people used outside photographers at the PPR. Has anyone used their standard photographer? If so do you have any pictures posted so I can see some of their work? Were you happy with their work and what you received for the money?

          Thank You

                I recall seeing some pics from the PPR house photographer - but can not remember who ... so I would recommend searching the entire Dominican Republic thread area. To the best of my recollection they were good - just not as off-the-charts as the photogs you would pay to come in.

                Compare prices - it might be worthwhile to bring someone in. I know there is a local company that does great work in Punta Cana.

                $2500 for 100 photos!?!??! Wow... that's expensive. But, for what it's worth, I like your signature picture! :)

                  Hi Everyone,
                  Does anyone know if you can mix and match from the cheaper packages?
                  I am going with the Aqua package but I do not like the aqua table cloths, I like the ones from the Fantasy package. As the Fantasy is cheaper I would think I could just use the linens from there but do you think they will charge for that?

                    From my talks with Viviana, they will let you do pretty much anything you want if you want to pay for it. I also received a price sheet from her yesterday about the photo packages offered by their house photographer. If anyone would like i'd be happy to send to you (it's too large to post).
