    I know I've tried searching this thread and it can be pretty daunting. I am going to attach the Romance Packages again for those who need it. If you can't open it PM me and I can e-mail it to you.

        Hi all, can i ask you where you are planning to do your honeymoon? My guy and I are thinking it makes sense to stay in Mexico, but we are not sure what hotel to do it at, we thought the el dorado but its like $500 a night and secrets is pretty also, another thought is just staying at the paradisus for the honeymoon, can i know what you guys are doing??

        Thanks

        Julie

          Hey Julie,
          We will be staying in Mexico to honeymoon but we will changing resorts to the Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso. We wanted some time away from kids at an adults only. We also looked at the Royal Hideaway, the Occidental Grand, and Secrets. From my understanding you can't go wrong with the El Dorado either. Good luck!

            Thanks so much, we are a little torn between secrets and el dorado. the prices are nuts $500 a night or so. I feel for that i can go back to ny and fly to europe but we really want to stay in Mexico and make the best of it.

            hmm I want the nice honeymoon but feel that I am going to be in MX as is saving on flights.

              Ok, I’m having a minor panic attack! Somehow my wedding is in less then 4 months and I still can’t decide what to do about photography. I am so indecisive. I saw one that I really liked, but the cost of booking her and flying her out here is a lot. My SIL has a friend who takes pregnancy and baby photos, so we were thinking about her, but she’s never done a wedding before, and I think her style is more of the posed style and I really am looking for someone who does more photojournalism. I came across moments that matter, and thought they looked really good, but they are completely booked. I don’t know what to do. Should I fly someone in, so I have them for the week, or do I use someone local, who I would have to pay extra for to have do a TTD. This is what I get for being a last minute person and indecisive!

                We're flying our photogs in. They are giving us three whole days of coverage and it still cheaper to fly them down and pay them than book a resort photog for the duration we wanted. Plus we wanted to do a TTD. If you fly someone in and they stay at the resort you don't get hit with an external vendor fee if that is going to aide you in your decision.

                I know a lot of girls have used photogs from the area though and have been very pleased. Hopefully someone else can chime in help with that!

                  Hi Everyone,

                  I just came across this resort this morning and it is absolutely amazing!! I have been struggling trying to find a nice resort that is not too expensive for my guests and is still what I am looking for. I have been going through this thread for a couple hours now (not sure I will ever make it through the entire thing:)) and I want to say thanks for all of the great info! I emailed the resort to request a wedding date so hopefully I should be able to hear from them soon. Any suggestions/recommendations on first steps please let me know. In the meantime I will keep going through this forum. Oh - so I am confused about how to open attachments?? Do you have to be a member for a certain amount of time Or have a number of posts?? Also, if anyone has the costs for the wedding packages in the meantime and can shoot me an email I would really appreciate it. I found it on here a couple times but they were all attachments.

                  Hopefully I will be having my wedding here!! What a long journey searching for resorts thus far! Thanks ladies

                    hi Crystal and congrats.

                    I am getting married in this hotel in July and am so far not bad, I was a Costa Rica Paradisus bride (hotel amazing) but decided on moving to Cancun because it was so much cheaper (flights)

                    If your looking at a bunch of hotels check out the Karisma el dorado's they are amazing. I wanted to go there but, the Paradisus wouldnt let us get out of our contract from Costa rica, we had to transfer to Paradisus MX.

                    Good luck with the hotel search.

                      Ok, so I finally made a decision on a photographer. We are going to fly someone in...crossing my fingers everything turns out ok with the decision. I am super paranoid.

                      I picked up my dress on Saturday. I originally didn't want a veil (i thought I would spend too much time fussing with it in the wind) but I tried it on with a veil and I felt much more like a bride, so i think i will go with one. I can always take it off it it bugs me. When I ordered it, it was a bit too small, but it fit perfectly on the weekend, so I am glad those painful hours at the gym and with the trainer paid off!
