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 “freebies”, 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 “shouldn’t be paying a dime for the wedding”. 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 resort’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?

 

Did any Brides go to the Disco after the reception? How did this work?

 

Any comments would be great appreciated! Congratulations to everyone!
