Hi there,

I visited PPR in July and got a walking tour of all the possible ceremony/reception locations. That would be my best suggestion to you. You can meet up with one of the girls on the romance team and literally ask them to show you everything. I had them show me the whole resort, including the handicap-accessible rooms. It really varies as to what you are looking for. You can have the ceremony/reception on the beach, garden, covered foyer, ballroom, large terrace, or rent a larger space that is covered but open to the beach.

 

Good luck with your trip!

I was married at the PPR in March and he was the most amazing time and special moment of my life.

My review for the hotel and for DJ Mannia is posted on the site somewhere but if anyone has any questions you can email me.

Hi ladies,

 

Is anyone picking the new updated Aqua package 2011? If so, are you adding flowers to the ceremony? I am not sure what to do here. The ceremony only last about 1/2 hour so I don't if it worthy to spend extra money on the decoration (this is not a cheap package, especially when I am having around 70 guests coming to the wedding.

 

I m getting married on April 16, 11,  is anybody getting married around this date at this resort?

I don't know about this new updated aqua package. I'm getting married on may 7th 2011. As for the ceremony lasting on 30 min. You should try adding a few readings or a sand ceremony to stretch it out a bit. You don't want to blink and it be over.

I'm having Pastor your and he is doing the religious ceremony for me- I'm having 2 friends read poems, my sister do the sand ceremony and my best friend read first Corinthians from the Bible.

Thanks BKbeachbride for the advise. I am planning on adding the sand ceremony but let see what else I could add to pronlog the ceremony a bit longer ;)

 

I'm thinking on choosing the new 2011 Aqua package so I don't have to worry about the alcohol but I know already I am going to go over-budget....oh welleek.gif
