PPR Brides what kind of reception dinner

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm getting married at PPR next Nov. Was wondering what kind of reception everyone is having? Sit down? Buffett? CoolnChic? I'm having a hard time deciding between sitdown and buffet. I have at least one vegetarian and one person that doesn't eat red meat. Does anyone know if the PPR will let your guests pick what they want if its a sitdown?

The same reception offerings are available at any Paradisus resort (just different prices) ...so at PPC we are doing our reception a la carte with a beach reception buffett. The Cool Chic seemed too expensive for what you actually get in our opinion.

I was just told by Kelly that for a sit down, I would have to pick one salad, entree, and dessert. Which would be really hard since I have a couple of vegetarians in our group. I think I might have to do the buffett or beach grill.

I saw the menus posted for some other resorts so I'd figure i post the PPR menus for girls who don't have them. I know before i chose a resort I wanted to look over menus, it's nice to see your options before making a decision.

Yes, for a sit down dinner you have to choose one from each section ... which makes it hard.

 

We are only doing this for our rehearsal dinner -- and going with lobster as the main course. Anyone who doesn't like it will have to grab something to eat at the buffet or something after b/c that's the only option we had -- or no rehearsal dinner at all.

The Chill Out Menu is for just an appetizer reception, if I remember correctly, so it looks okay for that purpose.

The Beach BBQ options look great. I actually like that one the best!

The Wedding Buffet is pretty well-rounded too.

The sit down menu is a bit limited, since you have to pick onl one of each course and everyone must eat the same thing -- but I like that there is a Surf-N-Turf option.

Our sit-down menus at PPC don't have that option, so we chose lobster and hope no one at the Rehearsal Dinner complains (although I know one of my BM's is really picky, so I know she won't eat it but she probably wouldn't have liked any of the options...)

I have a vegetarian in our group and another person that doesn't eat red meat. They would both eat the lobster. Do you think it's okay to have surf-n-turf even though they don't eat meat?

 

That may be my only workable option.

 

I would love to do the Beach BBQ but you need a min of 45 people (well at least pay for 45 ppl) same with buffett. Looks like we are only going to have 30 people.

I would do the surf & turf but talk to your wedding coordinator about the vegans. I am SURE she can talk to the chef and have something worked out for you.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
