Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

You go Becks on that comped room, thats the way to make up for all the charges for the wedding hehehe.

 

Cant wait to see your silk flowers LeShay. Im doing real but did consider silk at one point (for the bouquet and BM bouquet) I was worried about packaging them properly and the price was about equal to the real at the hotel.

 

We are doing favors but we are waiting to buy something when we get there. We figured something local would be nice. Since we will be there so many days in advance I figure I could shop around and haggle. I didnt want to get too crazy since we are also doing OOT bags.

 

Im so excited I received the damask fabric I had ordered from Etsy for the ring bearer pillow. If I have enough engergy I might do it tonight. Although I dont have the ribbon to attach to finish it but thats simple enough to do later on. I will post it when Im done.

I love the idea of favours from Mexico! That's a really cute idea and you can certainly get a great deal if you buy a larger number! I am excited to see your silk flowers too LeShay - we are going with real I think but only because we are only really doing my bouquet and my sis (MOH) - I think for the boutinierres I am going to do starfish!

 

 

Just out of curiousity - How big of a group will you guys each have? We are thinking about 50 - we have 35 booked so far and maybe another 10 or so..

We're figuring around 50. Maybe a few more, maybe a few less.

 

I've ordered my bouquet from Angels, along with my hair flowers (little tiny single jasmine on hair pins that I can tuck here and there - so excited!!). I won't have them until late May or early June, but I'll share when I get them. But frankly, the bouquet included with the package is white roses - totally not me. And the cost for something more colorful was $100 so I figured what the heck - I'll use Angels, and the price was the same!!

Well ladies, I am leaving in the morning and I have a terrible cold...hopefully the warm sunny weather will make me feel better quickly.

 

I do not have the email to the florist. Elisa forwarded me the photos of the vases from the florist.

 

I had not seen a detail sheet as of yesterday so I used Missy's as a guide and inserted all my information and sent it to Elisa to review. She seemed really shocked and asked me where I got this form to use!

 

I will check in when I return.

But she did suggest we go with the Wish and add on, rather than the other way around.

I was quoted something closer to $3,000 for Victor de Alba!!!! I am working on getting an outside vendor, so any help or advice would be great! thanks, girls!! :)

And we'll be waiting to hear how it goes!

I am using a FANTASTIC photog from Houston... he is wonderful, and I highly recommend him! His cost is reasonable, and gives you full rights to your pics after the wedding... i'm getting him and a 2nd photographer for the rehearsal dinner, all day the wedding day, and a session on the day after (we're doing a TTD Session, and I am sooo excited about it!) I am sure he'd be more than happy to travel for your wedding, too... his website is: J. Cogliandro Photographers - International Award Winning Photographers

Sol Tamargo is another fantastic photographer, and she's located in Playa... I am becoming slightly obsessed with photographers... I just love photography!

On another note, I am starting to freak out a little reading everyone's posts... worried2.gif I know, I need to relax, and know that our wedding will be great! I just need to focus, and take it one day at a time!!

Welcome Kim! Glad to have another Paradisus girl on board!

 

In terms of DJ - did you contact Victor directly? Even with his 2008 rates I think he was at less than $2000...

    • 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.
