    Our ceremony is at 4 so we'll need to get the all day pass for people.
    Thanks! I guess I will have to do the same.

      I dunno, after I read the recent reviews on tripadvisors, I think I will skip this resort.

        All resorts have "negative" reviews on trip advisors... you can never make everyone happy. I was even happier with the resort when I went and checked it out "prettypig"... good luck finding a resort that someone didnt post a negative review on trip advisor.

          I totally agree. I've been to some of the most fabulous resorts that I thought I died and went to heaven but yet reading reviews before I went scared me. Sometimes you cannot please someone no matter how hard you try. Even though I have not yet been to this resort and picked it sight unseen, I am very happy with my decision even though I'm sure the other resorts are great as well.

            My fiance and I have decided to go with the Paradisus Riviera for our December 2010 wedding! I filled out the information sheet on their website but haven't received any information. Should I just directly email their wedding coordinator? Could someone provide me with her direct email? Also, any advice as I start the planning process is greatly appreciated!

              I can't get a straight answer- so I thought I'd put it in here. We are having a legal ceremony in June and the only requirements I've been told we need are passports, birth certificates and the tourist card you get on the plane. I can't find out if we need our birth certificates translated or not or if there is anything else we need.

              Also has anyone heard from Cecilia? I have e-mailed her more than once over the last two months and haven't heard a word. I am getting nervous- my wedding is in 3 months and we haven't planned a thing with the resort.

                I wish I could help with the legal wedding question. We are getting married in the states first and just having a symbolic ceremony. I believe you have to have blood tests too.

                Last I heard from Cecila was about 3 weeks ago. I heard from past brides that communication should get a lot better when you are within 3 months. If you don't hear from her, I would call since you are so close to your date.

                  She always answers if you call, give that a try!

                    Kelie, I contacted Fernando from the Makeup Pros re make up and he has a guy that would also come and do hair but Cecilia told me I'd have to pay the vendor fee vs the day pass for them to come on site! Now that is just crazy! I guess you may be able to get away with saying they are a guest.

                    BRIDE
                    HAIR & MAKEUP TRIAL $180
                    DAY OF THE EVENT $330

                    BRIDEMAIDS
                    ONLY HAIR $50 up to $80
                    ONLY MAKEUP $90

                    He seems really highly recommended from other brides on the site. Check the thread about hair and make up and there are others too that are recommended.

                    Oh ... booked our DJ today!! Going with Ivan at Doremixx. Very excited! Also, I called Cecilia to be sure there would not be any other charges besides the outside vendor fee and someone named Adriana answered and she said that it is her, Cecila and Daniella doing the weddings there and she was super nice and told me to forward her my emails that I was waiting on a response and that she would follow up with Cecila. She couldn't really answer all my questions but was very nice. She also said they have a ton of weddings in April that they are getting ready for that is why they have been slower than usual getting back to us.

                      Welcome Mary! I wouldn't stress out too much about not hearing from the hotel. They are really busy right now and I'm certain, even if they weren't, they would still take forever and a day to get back to you. Just remember that they are smack dab in the middle of wedding season for them. I booked this resort back in December and only last week did I get everything finally finalized. And that wasn't even the wedding planning part, just the paperwork and date. One great thing about the Paradisus is that, if you call, they will answer so if you get really stressed, try that. Cecilia's email is cecilia.garcia@solmelia.com

                      Happy Planning!
