2013 Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

Erica -

 

In Massachusetts, you have to wait a couple of days after you request a marriage license to actually pick it up. From what I understand, the resort will also ask you for a copy of your marriage license, so it's best to do the legal stuff like a month or so out so you have time to pick up your marriage license. We got our marriage license in Peabody, MA and they were very helpful and made sure to give us extra copies of the certificate so we had one to give to the resort. :) Hope that helps!

LL17- do you have pictures of Olympus Terrace? What about Gabi Terrace? We are getting married at the Jesus Maestro Church but still need a cocktail hour space and a reception space. Bianca sent me a package of locations but it doesn't say anything about paying the $9,000 privatization fee for using the Gabi Beach Restaurant as a location. It makes it seem like you can play music and have a reception there and its gorgeous- but I think you have to pay the $9,000 fee to use it for a wedding- which we clearly would not do lol.

Hi Erica. I will be getting married at the paradisus Palma real on April 26th 2013, just one day before you! I literally booked my date today. Did you already book your flights? Flights are really expensive from nj right now... Like 700 bucks per person. I am a bit worried about guests being able to swing that. Suzanne

Hi All,

 

Thanks for the suggestions. EV Thanks a bunch.

 

I emailed paradisus and am now in contact with Marylin Cairo who is helping me plan my January trip. We are going to try to do the Love at First site and see if it is going to be the place for our wedding.

 

What is the difference between staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana and the Paradisus Palma Real?

 

If you pick a certain package do you have to go with the colors given. Forexample, if you choose AQUA do you have to have aqua table clothes and decor? I am just curious. 

 

How much would it be to add on certain things to your package like:

 

A reception at the Gabi?

 

a welcome dinner?

 

A DJ? Fire Show?

 

I read in the package that they play recorded musich during the ceremony. Do they have the option for you to hire someone to play during the ceremony?

 

 

Thank you all for all of your feedback and great tips.

 

:)

 Angel

Hi EVknowsitall - I have pics of the Olympus terrace! PM me your email address and I'll send some over to you. We chose the Olympus terrace bc you can still see the beach from there and it is beautiful right by the pool. When I was there, I saw a reception at Gabi Beach and while it was absolutely stunning, I think that any of the other sites are just as nice without $9000! Lol we are doing our cocktail hour at Plaza Colonial which is the courtyard by the fountains. You can opt to do both cocktail and reception at the Olympus terrace but we thought it would be fun to mix it up! Let me know if you want me to send pics of plaza colonial as well :)

LL17- please send me pics of Olympus Terrace as well, or perhaps you can post them here? I am getting married at PPRL in July 2013 and am very excited by apprehensive about what it all looks like in person. We reserved teh Gazebo for ceremony and cocktail hour, and the Terrace for the reception. I hope it wont be too hot to have guest outdoors the whole time.

LL- i cant believe you are in peabody! i am in swampscott!

 

Suzanne- we have not booked our flights yet... I have been watching kayak.com to see if they will go up or down. They have stayed similar- about 450 from boston. I am hoping they will go down more because I flew from boston in december and paid 350! Just an fyi too if you are planning to fly jet blue they do not have a closet to store your wedding on flight so they suggested either checking it, shipping it, or buying an extra seat. For me, thats a deal breaker so I am looking at other airlines!

Hello Ladies,

 

Can any past bride or anyone who has visited the resort tell me if top shelf/international alcohol is part of the all inclusive for everyone or is this a perk for someone staying at the Reserve or Royal Service??

 

Also, do guests that stay at The Reserve have access to all the restaurants and pools or are they limited to just the ones in the Reserve?

 

Thank you so much!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
