Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Aly, I have been so crazy busy with work and all these darn showers and wedding planning that I started drafting my review but have never finished. 

 

Overall, we loved the resort. It is beautiful and the food is great. Daniela the WC is awesome and like you said, I don't think we have anything to worry about.

 

The only downsides I would say is that the beds are not the best but I was told that is part of the renovations they will be doing and by October, 100 or so rooms should be done. Also, when it rains the marble floors get really slippery so warn your guests.  While we were there a woman slipped and hit her head and had to go to the hospital. You do have to make reservations for the Japanese but none of the other restaurants.

 

I've attached a few pics.

Where the reception will be...

Let me know if you have any questions!

 

I am now going to start working on my OOT bags!

Thanks Angie!

 

Wow, I guess the railing and roof around the deck area got blown away or something. Did they mention if they plan to replace it?

 

Where are you planning on doing your ceremony and reception?

They are planning to replace the railing but not the roof as it wasn't really a roof anyways so if it rained it wouldn't matter. 

 

I am planning to do the reception there on the deck and the ceremony on the beach below.  Here's a pic. The chuppah will be closer to the water of course to allow more chairs.

WOW i just looked at this thread and wa-LA! tons of details I can use! avong1288 (sorry I don't know your name!), do you by chance happen to have the packet with the wedding info sent to you by the WC? I've been emailing with her, and yesterday she sent me an email saying she would be sending the pricing, cake, flower, etc information in a separate email... and then never did.  I am DYING to look at it!

I am doing the same thing Angie! We're planning on doing the chairs in kind of a semi circular shape facing the chuppah to allow for more room since it seems we will have between 80 and 100 people. The stairs will act as part of the aisle.

 

I'm actually glad they're not putting the roof back up because I was worried about going up on the chairs with it.

 

Are you doing a band or a dj?

Oh and reading back further a bit in this thread, it seems like everyone here knows each other! so I guess I should introduce myself- hi! I'm Ayslinn, I'm not actually getting married until 2012 but I'm starting early on the research planning thing because I'm super excited and I want to give my guests as much time as possible to make reservations and such. 

 

You ladies all seem to be miles ahead of me (I have some information but not a ton) so I'm just gonna keep on reading so I can catch up!

 

Anyways, nice to meet 'cha. smile159.gif

I've attached what Aly actually gave me. They don't have all the prices on there or menus. We picked an old menu since we had picked it prior to the change but from what I know they only have sit down options.  If anyone has the list of old hors devours, they are the same options.  I am doing the Devine and we get 4 cold and paid extra to do 2 cold and 2 hot.

 

We are having a DJ. 

 

To be honest, I really wish I wouldn't have freaked out at first about planning the actual wedding part since they really will take care of it all pretty easily.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
