Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Finally I got in touch with them and thought I would share the information I got so far. They are supposed to send me the menus for the new packages today, but I haven't received them (shocker). They said the food would be the same, just different packages names (I am not sure exactly what that means). They also mentioned that for the cocktail hour it is $15 per person (not sure if that is for divine package or the Now to eternity package) over the included 25 and for the dinner it is $48 per person over the 25 included for the now to eternity package and $53 per person over the included 25 for the divine package. They also mentioned that it is a $250 fee for the open bar. The cake is $6 per person after 25 and for the toast it is $4 per person after 25. They also mentioned that they are working out the music/sound system provider but that is not settled yet and it looks like they may not be working with SWANK any longer. That's all I got right now. I hope it helps.

It does help! Thank you! Everyone here knows 100% more than I do at the moment so any info helps.

I talked to that long lost high school girl and she said no to sharing photos. I was shocked actually. Who wouldn't want to share beautiful wedding pics?!! Oh well. Sorry ladies, I tried sad.gif

A little bit more information. I received the menu for the divine package. I am not sure how it works- if we choose one entree and everyone has to eat it, or if the guests get to choose their own entree. I am trying to find that out.

Salmon tartar; cucumber and lemon scented olive oil

Mixed lettuce with blue cheese and walnut confit; honey-balsamic dressing

 

SOUPS

Asparagus creamy soup with smoked salmon

Mushrooms and roasted garlic veloute

Creamy lobster soup, brandy scented

Shrimp minestrone

 

MAIN COURSES

Supreme of chicken stuffed with seafood, "fine champagne" sauce

Surf and turf of beef filet and shrimps, wild mushroom sauce and mild sweet pepper sauce

Beef filet Bordaleise; Duchess potato and asparagus

At least you've gotten a voicemail Lauren. I haven't heard anything since that generic email we all got! I must admit, I haven't been trying very hard to contact anyone though. I'm strangely calm throughout this whole transition... maybe I shouldn't be! eeek.

Just talked to my TA for over an hour, she has advised me we have to switch resorts. She is not getting any answers from anyone over there, and all the TA's from destinationweddings.com have said the same thing and have heard various complaints from people that have just visited there for weddings... SOOO stressed.

    • 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.
