      Hi ladies, I'm new to this thread but I've been reading up on this for months. I'm currently at Now Sapphire for my site visit and thought everyone should know that Daniela is no longer here and her replacement is Ramon. May

        I also think this is a great idea!  I had found NOW Sapphire independently of this forum and had a difficult time trying to locate this thread.

          My fiancee and I are considering getting married at this resort sometime next winter.  We're pretty flexible on dates, and I was wondering what process everyone here used to book their wedding dates.  Did you contact the resort first to book a date, then start working with a travel agent to book rooms/flights around that date?  Or something else?  I'm pretty new to all of this, so any advice would be helpful.

          Thanks!

            Hi Everyone!

             

            Just new to the site - looking to figure out where I want to get married next April! This is one of the resorts I am thinking about. Does anyone know how far it is to Playa del Carmen - and how much a taxi is? I know most of my guests would want to get off the resort and just hoping its not too far.

             

            Also - how's the beach/ocean? Is it hard to swim there (ie because of Coral).

             

            Thanks!

              I think we just need to have a moderator rename the thread for us. I know there is a list of active users on the homepage, but I don't know how to tell who is a moderator and who isn't.. I'll just post a thread in the "Bugs, issues, etc" section to see if someone can help us out with renaming.

               

              I thought about having it changed to "Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun (formerly Paradisus Riviera)". Pretty basic name, so hopefully it will come up if people search either the new or old name. Thoughts or suggestions for another name??

                Hi Lianee,

                 

                I think the plan you have laid out makes the most sense (and that's how I did it more or less)-- contact the resort to find available dates and get that nailed down. I figured it would be awful to get the rooms/flights all set, only to find out later that the resort had no openings for weddings during my stay!!  

                 

                In general, I found if you can give them a list of your preferred dates (ranked in order), they will get back to you with availability faster than if you just ask for them to tell you what is open, especially if you have a very large window of dates you're looking at.
                 

                Good luck!

                Sarah

                  Hi May,

                  Are you back from your site visit? Anything you can share that might be helpful?!

                   

                  thanks!

                    82turtles,  This sounds like a great plan!

                      Thanks for the advice 82turtles!

                      I emailed the wedding coordinator, unfortunately I didn't wait for the advice, so I had just asked for free dates.  Maybe if I don't hear back in the next week or so I will come up with a list of dates to check with them.
