Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies,


last night I started to review the pages of this forum (for a second time) and only just realised that the ceremony in the package is not a legal one...! I know we could have a legal ceremony but at a very steep cost, $1000 USD.


After a long discussion with my FI we had decided that we may need to review our resort options. The cost of Paradisus may be a little more than we had planned. The fact the resort only does one wedding a day is very attractive, but their costs are just so high and they really do seem to charge for every little thing. It is tough because we may not know exactly what we want to change to a package for the next couple of months and then the cost of our destination wedding is too much for us to attend!


Thank you all for your wonderful comments and all the information. I will stop by and try to read your posts even though I may have to join a new thread elsewhere.


LAURENANDBILL - have a wonderful day and I will watch for your review and photos!


It has been great chatting with you all and Missy, I too refer to you all as my Forum Friends/People when chatting with my FI! hehe

Hi Ladies,


I don't get a chance to get on much, but I do read all the posts via email. You all do post some great info, and I love it. I was wondering if any of the brides who've already been married at PRC used the in house photographer, and if so, have you posted your pictures? John and I are using their photgrapher, and I just want to be sure we're making the right decision, especially after viewing all of the wonderful slide shows from other photographers.


Thanks for the help!

Aw, thanks ladies! :)


SD - Ask Perla about the bigger gazebo they have built/are building at the resort. She said it was built to for Mayan wedding ceremony that they offer, but perhaps you can use it for a regular ceremony. Sorry, I didn't get to see it and take pictures! We got married on the sand and it as so nice! I didn't wear shoes, so walking on sand wasn't a problem.


SamG - sorry I don't have any info on the resort's photog


Lauren - You're only a few weeks away ---- EXCITING!

I did not use the house photographer so I can't comment on that and I also got married on the sand with no shoes.


I had no trouble walking... it's sand so I mean I probably didn't look super glam but that wasn't my goal.


Lauren- The starfish is on it's way. :)

So I was thinking about having fire dancers perform during the reception as a surprise for all my guests. But looking back through the thread, it seems they aren't allowed at the hotel because of the palapas. Dang! Missy, I think I saw you mention that Perla said she had an idea for a performance...I haven't found yet if you posted what that was. Could you let me know if she got back to you on that?

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
