    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.

        If it's a sit down dinner (which is what I'm doing), you can pick whatever you want. They give you menu selections to choose from.

          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.

              Kelly sent the menus to me today. I was a little disapointed in the Chill Out menu

                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.
