Paradisus Punta Cana - Photography & Garden Ceremony Location Q's!

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides!


I have a few questions for PPC Brides. FI and I decided to opt for a "weddingmoon"  & LOVE PPC (well, the pictures on the internet anyway cheesy.gif)... but since we just decided on the location & just have a few months to plan (6.29.13 - our 4 year anniversary), I have so many questions and am feeling flustered!


It will just be the two of us so we are going to use their complimentary wedding package. I was wondering if anyone has gotten married in the garden area (that is the location that comes with the complimentary package), and if so what was your opinion of the location? Pix? It seems like everyone has gotten married at the gazebo or beach so I am having a hard time envisioning the garden, especially since I have always wanted to get married with a gorgeous ocean view! Also, for anyone who has used the complimentary package -- Did you pay extra for ceremony decor (canopy/aisle)? If so, What did that run you?


Okay -- so my question about the photography is this ... Did you do photography before or after your ceremony? We are going to book the basic photography package that comes with garden/beach shoot & ceremony photography. For the date that we originally chose (haven't booked yet & we may change now since I just found out that the ceremony is not actually legal and costs $1,000 extra to make legal .. we can make it legal at home for a lot cheaper before we go!) the time that was available was 6pm, so we would have to do garden/beach pictures before the ceremony.. but I am worried about my dress getting dirty in the sand before the ceremony and want to get others opinions on this before I book the time so if we need to do the photography after I can book an earlier time.


Thanks for any advice!!!

    • 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.
