Paradisus Punta Cana - pricing for ceremony and reception

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am getting married at the Paradisus Punta Cana – 11/11/13 – so excited!

We have chosen the Chill Out Chic Package – Ceremony and cocktails on the beach, reception by the pool. Starting at sunset – by the way, does anyone know what time this is around in November?


I have a couple of questions for everyone:


Firstly, when we were initially looking into pricing of having our wedding at the Paradisus Punta Cana, we were informed that the PPC does not negotiate their prices, no matter on the amount of guests booking to stay at the PPC. I have 73 people, confirmed with down payment.

I have been having numerous people, who have been to or had a destination wedding, informing me that with larger groups, often resorts will throw in little “freebies†for the ceremony and/or reception. If not “freebiesâ€, they have received discounts on extras they are purchasing for their special day. I have also spoken with a travel agent (not my own) who deals mainly with the Bahamas. She also mentioned that I “shouldnâ€t be paying a dime for the weddingâ€. This, I do not believe, nor expect.


 I am just concerned that all of these people are informing me that their resort worked with them on pricing. Like I am talking cost for every extra person attending. Was anyone able to have the PPC work with them on pricing? Last time the PPC and I talked pricing was prior to any of my guests confirming.


Furthermore, is anyone familiar with the resortâ€s photographer? Any comments on their photography/experience with them?


Also, did anyone make and bring their own centerpieces/decorations? Did you bring them with you on the flight or ship them to the resort before your arrival?


Any comments would be great appreciated! Congratulations to everyone!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
