  1. My wedding planner might have the wedding book for the Sapphire but I know that I don't. I know that the Sapphire has a lot of different options for the reception and I didn't really pay attention to how many locations it has for the ceremony because I wanted the ceremony on the beach. I know that if it rains, then the ceremony is in the gazebo. Â I chose the Sapphire over the Jade because I liked that it looks more like a resort than an upgraded and updated hotel. The Sapphire, to me, looks more like you're in another country with the architecture and the design and layout. A lot of hotels have been updated and are more modern, but that wasn't necessarily what I was looking for. I like the "Spanish" feels that the pictures for the Sapphire gave me. I looked at a ton of resorts and I just kept going back to this one. And after doing a site visit earlier this month, I am sooo glad that I am getting married at the Sapphire! Â
  2. Ok so i am even super slow on the save the dates! we got engaged in june and then we were all decided on get getting married in the caribbean until we recently it would be a lot more expensive for not as nice of a place, so we picked mexico in july and finally picked the save the dates and got them ordered but we had a printing issue...and well, they still haven't been sent. oops! good thing most people know when it is and that's it's in mexico! website is up and running and we are planning on such a small wedding that i think all of the guests will be booked before the end of october anyway (before invitations are even sent probably) so oh well. save the dates are probably not even smart or practical at this point but the money has been spent and we like the picture on them, so it'll be a keepsake! haha. i do have to make a correction- our wedding planner is here in dallas actually! still keeps me sane though! oh and i love the royal blue and green color combo! we almost had the same colors too! we went with green and a coral (more of an orange than a pink coral though). green is my favorite so i think most of the stuff will be green with random orange thrown in for fun (like the flowers). our planner is currently coming up with decorations and theme stuff so i have no idea where that whole idea is going...but hopefully not too much of a beach theme. i love a destination beach wedding but i am not an over the top theme kind of person! as far as chairs...i think the tiffany chairs for the ceremony, no clue what the reception will look like, orange and white flowers (they have a TON of different lilies in Mexico that smell wonderful, no roses for me), and centerpieces- well no clue there either. there are some things i just really know nothing about and decorations are part of that! so hopefully my planner is going to just give me a few options to choose from! the only thing i am particular about are flowers! are you in contact with sandra or daniela at the resort for the planning? they have soooo many pics they can send you! when i was there i did see some chair bows and i have to saw the organza look nicer than taffeta, just my two cents that really mean nothing though! :-) Â ok so i've been trying to figure out where the beach terrace is....any ideas? are our receptions going to be like right next to each other? haha. did you figure out what you're going to do about photography? Â
  3. Well that's good that you have people on top of booking even though you haven't sent out invites yet! I haven't sent out the invitations but I have a feeling that people won't even consider booking until then...and it'll be so expensive by then! We have a block of rooms booked for those that we know for sure are coming, so I guess everyone else will just be on their own! I think we will probably be sending out invitations sometime next month, but I haven't even decided on that yet. I actually have a wedding planner here that is doing a lot of the details for me and keeping me on a schedule but I know what you mean. I still feel like there is so much that should be done now even though maybe it doesn't need to be! I have my dress too...but no bridesmaid dresses yet since one is preggers and due next month! Good for you on getting those welcome bags together...I have a feeling those will be very last minute for me! 5 months seems sooo far away but I bet it'll fly by! Â What are you doing for your colors? Are you having a really beach-y theme? Â
  4. I am looking at honeymoon options for February and El Dorado Maroma is on the top of my list. I saw that you got a chance to see the honeymoon suite. Any chance you took any pictures?! What floor was it on? I love the idea of being able to just walk right out onto the beach and from the pictures on the website, it doesn't look like you can do that with the honeymoon suite, but if it's just that wonderful (and it's available during our honeymoon!), not sure why we would pass it up! Thoughts?! Â Thanks!!!! Â
  5. I am not using the photographer at the resort. I hired Samuel Luna, a local photographer. Sandra and Daniela can recommend some great photographers (that's what they said when I met them a couple of weeks ago- hopefully not just friends but actual great and reputable photographers!). And since we aren't using the resort photographer but he was included in the Divine wedding package, we are able to add on to the videographer's services. I am sure that you could do the same, depending on what wedding package you have purchased. Just thought I'd let you know!
  6. Have you done a site visit? We hadn't seen it when we booked it but we happened to have a trip planned for Cancun a couple of weeks ago so we stopped by and absolutely loved it. Thank God! It was nice to get those jitters out of the way! Our ceremony will take place at sunset, which I think is around 4:30 in February. The terraces are definitely the way to go with the receptions! Our wedding will actually be pretty small....not sure how many people will be traveling, but we are doubting that we will have more than 35, or else we might have thought about doing the reception on the beach as well. Are you planning on having a big group? When are you telling people the deadline is for reservations?
  7. Congratulations! Looks like you and I have a lot in common....I am also getting married at the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun on February 19th! Where are you having your ceremony and reception? We are getting married on the beach and then having our reception on the Tequila Terrace. Looks like we have lots we can discuss!!! Â
  8. I like seeing that someone else is getting married here! There's a big forum on the Now Jade brides but not much discussion for the Sapphire brides! I am getting married at the Sapphire on February 19, 2011 but we are going down for a site visit next week (we just happened to be going to Cancun for a little getaway trip before we decided to get married in Mexico). I feel like I could ask you a million questions....so if you want to give me some overall basic details....message me! :-) Â Congrats! Â ~Laura
  9. I have had a TON of friends go here for either romantic getaways or honeymoons and we are thinking about having our honeymoon here as well. I have heard nothing but FABULOUS things about this place!
  10. Great review! Thanks for all of the information! I am also from Dallas, getting married at the Now Sapphire in February and have booked Samuel Luna! Hope I am just as pleased as you obviously were! Â Congratulations!
  11. So I am new to the forum...but noticed that the most recent posts are all about the Now Jade resort...anyone getting married at the Sapphire?! I am getting married on February 19, 2011 at the Now Sapphire resort. Sandra is the planner that my planner (yes, I hired one here to deal with it!) is corresponding with...and I can already tell that emails are either answered within 24 hours or a week or two later! Â Looks like there have been a lot of recent posts about flowers and extra costs and I agree that an extra $95 or whatever for a centerpiece is freakin ridiculous! I guess I never really thought about bringing in my own flowers or getting them from another florist around the area. Â Are most people doing the legal ceremony in Mexico? Or just doing the wedding there? Â Lots of random thoughts! Sorry! Â ~Laura
  12. Just joined the site yesterday after having read a review on the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun resort, where I am planning my wedding- site unseen! We will be getting married February 19, 2011....and luckily, we had a random trip planned to Cancun (staying at The Royal in Cancun) for Sept 8-12, so we will be making a little trip down to the resort and making sure it's all we want for the wedding! Â Looks like theres A LOT of good advice to be read here....so thanks in advance ladies! Â Â ~Laura
  13. I will be at The Royal in Cancun in 2 weeks!!! Congrats and good luck! I am trying to iron out all of my details for my DW at the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun in February 2011 as well!
