    Kelly your pics are gorgeous!

    Has anyone used the mariachis that paradisus provides? How were they? The price tag is steep for 45 min IMO- as I have said before and I have been working on using an outside vendor (I'll keep you posted.. still figuring that out). Kelly, Missy, Rebecca? I can't remember hearing about that in your reviews. In some cases it's worth paying the outside vendor fee because it's still significantly cheaper than the paradisus rate so I was just wondering what everyone else was planning to do...

      Hi Kelley,

      Could you tell me what the lighting was like on the terrace at night
      We are having our wedding at 5:00 and I am concerned about the lighting for the photographer during the reception etc..

      Thanks!

        What month is your wedding? During our stay it was completely dark out by 5:45ish every night. The deck was not too dark though. We added paper lanterns to the ceiling, but they weren't really needed for light, more just decoration. It will really depend on what month you are there tho.

          I wanted to play a slide show of bride/groom baby photos at the rehersal dinner. Have any of you done this and know if they can set something up for this?

          Thanks,

          Meredith

                Congrats and welcome to the paradisus page!

                So I decided to book the mariachi band through ajua weddings. They are planners but can arrange things separately if you don't need full service. The 6 person mariachi band ends up being $725 which included the band, transportation and the coordinator fee. I know that I still need to tack on the $300 outside vendor fee but it's still a little less than going straight through PRC.

                On another note.. for the ladies that already got married at PRC- did you feel that the fans were necessary for the ceremony? When we went for our site visit I remember there being a very strong breeze so I'm curious. I think they look pretty on the chair but am wondering if they are really "needed". Your input is appreciated!

                    Yamille~ don't get fans! It was windy, no one needed them. Not one was used. And they take up a lot of space to pack, even though they don't weigh much. They are one of the things I wouldn't do again. They are a cute idea, but not needed IMO.
