2013 Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

hello everyone!!

 

I set my wedding date for august 16, 2013 (this summer!) and I picked the tailor made package thinking the more you spend on your package, the more you get. After asking my wedding planner Jessica numerous times as to what was included in my package (decor) she kept emailing me the same package details that were on the website!!  I hope someone can help me on here and maybe get a better understanding as to whats included in my package.. 

 

Thank you!!

Hi ladies

 

This is a question about your bridal party...I am in the NYC area. My fiancee wants to wear a beige suit for the wedding and we will be investing into a nice suit for him since we can wear it again. Does anyone know where I can rent nice beige suits for the bridal party, we both want them to be nice and we obviously cant ask the guys to buy themselves suits. I also figured that some of the guys would have beige suits but then the colors may be off and I dont think that would work well. I would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations on what you ladies have done with your bridal parties. Thank you!

Hi ladies,

I am not sure if anyone cleared this issue up or not but does anyone know if the outside vendor fee still has to be paid if the photographer stays as a guest at the resort (I pay for his room that night) or can it be bypassed?

 

Thanks!!

Hey there

 

I actually just picked out my guys outfits yesterday at men warehouse. We got calvin kelin khaki linen vests and pants.We got an amazing deal- half off! They are going to be wearing white dress with the sleeves rolled up and navy vineyard vines ties!

 

On another note, i am not sure if it was addressed before but what are people doing for the rehearsal dinner??

this is what the Bianca from the romance team sent me...

 

 

Correct – the outside vendor fee is $1000.00+tax plus day passes for each crew member coming onto the property.
Either that or 3 nights reservation at the hotel for the photographer…

Hello Ladies,

 

I hope you are all doing well. I am having major stress at this time. While finishing grad school, working full time, finishing up a part time internship and having family members who are not doing well health wise. I was told by a family member that maybe i should cancel my wedding and have something small in NY.

 

I have been waiting for this moment my whole life and it seems like (i am getting the impression that) people are just not happy for me... or have other priorities which is understandable. For example, i sent out my "will you be my bridesmaids?" cards to all of my bridesmaids (8) and i only got a call from 2 of them. It seems like the rest dont really care or maybe i am just reading into things.

 

I have always been someone who accomodates people. UGH now i dont even think we will be able to even afford an at home reception. I am just really upset. I notice that i cry everyday.

 

Sorry ladies. I find that this forum is a place to vent and get support from other brides going to the same or similar situaiton.

 

Its hard being a bride!!! Good luck ladies.

Any way,

 

Does anyone know how much it is to rent the bridal suite?  I want to be able to rent the suite for me and the gals. If not i will stay with my parents or sister...not sure yet!!!

 

Does anyone know if travel agents charge extra or above the rate PPR gave us...

 

 

Thanks ladies

Hi there, I am sorry to hear about your situation. You only get married once, it's YOUR wedding, do what makes YOU happy. 

 

The bridal suite costs $300 for the time it takes to complete the services you are getting. I heard it is rather small and might not be worth it. I am guessing my suite will be bigger since I am staying at the swim up suite and hopefully get an upgrade. Not sure if that's how you would want to spend your money. I would rather spend it on the actual wedding. 

 

I am using the travel agents from this site, they don't charge extra and were able to get better rates than those offered anywhere online.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
