Update for all my 2014 brides:

 

I have officially booked and put a deposit down for Paradisus Punta Cana June 29th-July 5th 2014!! There are such good rates right now that I wanted to lock it in early! I can price match in the future too if the rates become better down the road!

 

Now I have to rush to get STD's created and sent out because my guests only have 80 days to put down their deposits!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

 

Jenn

    Thanks, I look forward to see how her November turns out.!  What made you decide on Paridisus over other resorts?

    There was just something about the lushness of the PPC resort that left an impression on my FI and I. I also loved their wedding packages and locations. This is the website http://www.paradisus-puntacana.com/ if you want to check it out!

     

    P.S.

    After reading bad reviews, I shopped around other resorts but never felt that same way as I did with PPC. I learned that ALL resorts come with bad reviews which is something you just have to accept and not let get in the way of your choice! Choose the resort which makes you most excited about having your wedding at!! That's my advice :)

      Choosing a venue I'd like choosing the dress, it almost chooses you. I tried to get past my venue but it was the one.

        Jenn,

        Thanks for the website info.  I requested information.  I had looked into that resort before.  I want a resort that has activities for all ages. I had liked the vibe of Hard Rock, but found the resort to be very large.  I do want to narrow down my choices to three resorts by the end of this year. I have so many ideas dancing in my head, but can't execute any of them until I find a location.

         

        Thanks,

        Sharon

          Hi all,

          First off let me say this is an AWESOME website!  I have been lurking for a few months and finally signed up.  I am planning to get married Feb 2014 in Montego Bay, tentatively at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites because I love the whole idea of 1 wedding a day. I'm open to the idea of off-resort weddings too though, so we are still deciding. Anyway, this is a very exciting time and I can't wait to share the planning with all the wonderful people on bdw.com!

            Hey Yossimeyer,

             

            I love Playacar Palace, since its any all inclusive and has beautiful grounds, kids friendly with great prices, turquoise water and white sandy beach, plus its in walking distance to the famous 5th avenue.

             

            Feel free to ask me anything and I will be happy to help.

             

            Happy Planning.

              I officially sent my invites out...eek!! I'm definitely NOT doing things the "typical" way as I'm still over a year and a half from the big day!! But I had to get them out ASAP so my guests can book their trip before the January 2013 deadline! Anyone else send their invites out this early? I feel like I need the reassurance that I'm not the only one here who is throwing all rules out the window?! lol

                o Jenn It's not just you mine are going out any day now, I'm almost don't and I am just under 15 months away. I have caught a bit of flack for opting to sent the officials out so early but I want my guests to have time to budget and plan. Plus by the time the traditional timeline suggests the final payment would already be past do. You are not alone:-) Cherina
