      Hi Ladies! I recently contacted a travel agent to get me a quote for group rates at PPR. I am hoping she can get a good deal... what are the average rates that have been posted? I'm afraid that it might be too costly for my guests. Cara24- the preferred photographer of the resort is Arrecife. The resort charges a $1000 fee if you use an outside photographer. I have been to Arrecife's Facebook page and their photos look beautiful... although their pricing structure is a little strange. I've heard a lot of good things about HDC Photography as well. Congratulations on your daughter's upcoming wedding!!

        Hello Paradisus Friends- I was so excited because I spent all day and night working on my website for my guests and I thought to share it for ideas. I've come a long way from the scatter-brained bride! It was a little of a pain to make, but well worth it. I think it is ESSENTIAL for a Destination Wedding!

        Our Save The Dates finally arrived and we are mailing them out on Thursday. They are Magnets so we came up with the idea of enclosing a small business card- one side is our Travel Agents information and the other side has our wedding URL so people can stay up to date using our website. Then our guests can just use our Save the Date magnet to hold up the business card and we will become a constant reminder when they go to grab a drink! We bought the business card stationery from Staples, and also purchased envelope sealers ($1.99 for 20 and they make the envelope look a little fancier!), and clear address labels so we wouldn't have to handwrite everything (we both have HORRIBLE handwriting).

         

        Our Save The Dates were ordered from Wedding Paper Divas. They are reliable for Destination weddings since their turnaround time is quick. I "liked" them on FB and got a discount code for 20% off my Save the Date order- my total for 50 magnets and 60 envelopes (ordered extra in case of mistakes- with Rush shipping) came out to a whopping $87. I'm all for DIY but not when DIY costs just as much or is comparable in price and causes a massive headache!

         

        We will also most likely order our invites from there as well. I got free samples from David's Bridal and did not like them at all. WPD has a free sample code as well and we ordered samples that will arrive soon. I plan to embellish them myself with rhinestones and ribbons before sending them out.


        Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

          Good call. I enlisted a TA as well. What I like about having one is our guests can pay a deposit and pay her off slowly on a payment plan instead of paying in one shot. I love mine, she is phenomenal!

                      Yay! I am so excited to hear that! Thanks so much! I'm new to this site...what does PM mean? I am dying to know if there is anywhere that Gio and I can get married that is overlooking the ocean but not on the sand? Let me know if you see any locations. Thanks!
