Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Welcome Brooke!! Glad to have another Paradisus Bride!!

 

Fanny I am planning on having one of my guests do my makeup. So no help there..sorry.

 

Kelly your pictures are beautiful!! That does remind me of why I chose the Paradisus to begin with! One question did they charge you for two sets of chair covers and bows? We may be having close to 100 ppl so it could get expensive if we have to buy two sets.

Ahh, I am stumped as to what to do about this... sad.gif
I am going to do my own. I went to bloomingdales and had an appt. with a bobbi brown makeup artist who was in from LA. I liked what she did for the most part. I bought all the makeup - i just don't want to pay and I don't trust anyone that has never done before. Becks had hers done there I believe... and she looked gorgeous.

Just a thought :)
This is who I am using for mariachis after so much debate with paradisus prices. I still end up saving even with the fee.

Awww... thanks Y!!! You're so kind

I actually brought a makeup artist down with me from NY. (Don't ask - it sounds like such an indulgence, but I was so greatful that I did!!)

Hi girls,

 

Do any of you know if the resort will steam my dress before the wedding and what the cost of this is? Just not sure how wrinkly its going to be after the plane ride, thanks :)

Hi Freckles,

 

I don't know what the cost is (kind of scared to ask for the cost of anything now), but Paradisus does offer this service. Since my dress isn't too poofy, my seamstress said to bring my carry-on bag to the store and she can pack it for me. I'm worried about having to fold it up and stuffing in into an overhead bin if I can't hang it.

 

Also, not to freak anyone out, but make sure they STEAM the dress, NOT dry clean. In one of those wedding shows, they mistakenly dry cleaned her dress and it shrunk!

 

From the wc:

 

Does Paradisus offer steaming services for the wedding dress? How many days does it take?

Yes, you need to send your dress maximum 1 day prior the wedding.

Happy Wedding Day Meredith! cheers.gif

 

Sandra, hope you're having a good time and everything is going smoothly.

 

My fingers are crossed for you ladies to have a beautiful wedding day in sunny Mexico :)

 

Stress level is through the roof right now. I can't believe this dj issue is still unresolved issue just 6 weeks before the wedding... cry.gif

Thanks Fanny - I too am nervous to ask on prices these days, I never know what to expect back. Im there for a few days before the wedding, I may just hang it up and let the humidity of the place do its work, Im a little nervous giving it to someone else to look after!

 

As for the DJ issue Im anxiously awaiting Sandras return to see what happened. Not sure if you girls saw but DJ Mannia is having a 30% off promotion for BDW brides not sure if its April only or starting in April. But I emailed them yesterday and even though we had already booked with them they are going to honor the 30%, almost 300$!!! So it kinda relieved a little stress I have over this whole SWANK issue and fees. I really dont know what Im going to do, but have a feeling it wont be resolved until we get down there and frankly I just dont want to worry about that on top of everything else!

 

Michelle

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
