Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi Diana! By the way, I mentioned to FI yesterday that there was another Paradisus couple in the NY area. We should grab a drink some night if you are up for it.

 

We are going with the "Wish" package - it's for 6 people, so everyone else is a +$, but it includes the minister, gazebo, ceremony music, basic bouquet, cake, etc.

 

So, we used that as our starting point and went from there.

Oh, one other thought...

 

I love a nice glass of champagne/sparkling wine. The house sparkling at the Paradisus is... um... awful. The per bottle price for the "premium" sparklings is about $100 per bottle.

 

However, they will allow you to bring your own booze - there's a $10 per bottle corkage fee. We'll be making a run to a liquor store or Costco to pick up some decent champagne at a decent price.

 

I'm trying to get a quote from Costco. If I hear anything, I'll be sure to let you know.

Yeah! I'm so happy a new Paradisus thread was started.

Me and my Fi are in the NY area also, if you guys get together let us know.

I've noticed that the Paradisus keeps changing the "recommended" photogs. When I first started planning they had 3 to choose from, when I put the deposit down with the Paradisus they were using Claudia Photo (which is who I booked with) and now they are using this other company Mexican Wedding Photos that you guys mentioned. Too much to keep up with LOL. I booked with Citlalli from Claudia Photos who is reviewed on BDW a lot of girls have been happy with her. I wasn't in awwee when I saw the photos online either but after seeing some of the girls wedding photos from Citlalli I felt that I made the right choice. They were gorgeous.

We opted to go for the Fantasy package there was a lot of stuff in the other packages we just didn't want and Perla told us its easiest to just add to the Fantasy or Wish. We are estimating around 40 guests (12 booked so far YEAH, our friends and family are the biggest procrastinators LOL). Invitations just went out today so hopefully that will motivate more to book. Which reminds me I have to post photos when I get home.

I haven't made any decisions regarding photogs yet. But there's some sort of connection between Claudia and mexican wedding photos - I think MWP is Claudia's husband or something.

thanks:)
Claudias link is Claudia Rodriguez, Photographer, Cancun & Riviera Maya their are a couple photogs who work with her.
You might be right Becks Claudias husband does videos so this might be a new website.
If you like Claudias work I say it doesnt hurt to ask Perla.

hi everybody...thanks for getting a new thread started Melissa!

 

diana - FI and I just went for a site and Becks and her FI were there the weekend before...have you read through the reviews?

 

we are going with the fantasy package and we're likely to have at least 100ppl...our guest list is getting a bit out of control!!!

 

we are going to go with claudia rodriguez for photo. mexicanweddingphotos is part of her company, she's just a bit pricier so Perla and Elisa now suggest her assistants (Citrella, etc)...and yes, her husband is the videographer. let me find the package info she sent me and i'll post it. we're waiting on the her general contract to come through before put down our deposit, but she's holding our date for us. I'll post the contract too once it comes through.

 

i wanted to mention something that Perla and Elisa told me while we were there and I don't think anyone else has brought up. We didn't like everything in any of the buffet menus (and we're going with a buffet) so they said we can mix and match whatever we want from the different buffets to basically create our own buffet menu the price will stay the same ($60pp). They didn't specify exactly how many salads, veggies, meats and desserts we could have because it'll depend on our selection, but I think its good to know you have that option.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
