    Nice review! We were down at the Paradisus the same weekend. We probably would have crossed paths, except that we cancelled our meeting with the WC at Dreams Cancun because they told us that the evening slot on our preferred days were all taken. Somehow getting married at noon in August in Cancun didn't seem like what we wanted to do.

    Happily married since 2008

      I'm so glad you had a good time!

      Isn't everyone there wonderful! It's brings back so many memories seeing your pictures!

      What was the red carpet near the gazebo? Is that something permanently there now, or was that for a wedding?

                kristi... i my personal opinion, YES. the other possible reception sites are the garden, beach, indoor terrance, and outdoor terrance. THe garden is the area between the gazebo and the private tower pool. The only beach reception is held on the private tower beach [they used to have receptions on the main beach but ever since Hitmisu, the japanesse resturatant, went up they stop holding them there]. Apparently, they also used to have receptions in the SPA but that became an issue with guests entering the 'private rooms for massages', lol. Also, setup was difficult and was ruining the spa experience for non-wedding memebers since setup usually started around 6/7 and the spa didnt close till 8. That could however, be something that you and Claudia discuss and see what you can do.

                reasons why we picked the terrance-
                1. the natural elements during dinner
                2. there is an actually bar in the lobby
                --> not sure if a bar would be set-up on location or if wait staff would get
                drinks we wanted our guests to have the option to get it themselves
                3. we are doing one long table... 35/40 guests.... saw pictures of these in
                terrace and really liked it/
                4. heels & such in grass or sand...

                ** one thing that might be negative about the terrance... it is afterall a lobby for the hotel. so there is foot traffic during your wedding. That is how i was able to capture some pics of the other wedding, i personally wouldnt mind it much, as long as people were respectful but thats something that should be taken into consideration

                hope this helps!

                  in regards to the lobby during your wedding, I honestly didn't even notice anyone going through, there may have been a few people, most people are respectful of your wedding, but that bar in the lobby is not really somewhere that people hang out, so you will find that its pretty quiet.
