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.

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.

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.

    • 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
