Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I am totally lost... what is this webinar you guys are talking about. I have had zero contact from the resort, and they are not getting in touch with my email. I tried calling them to speak to someone, and everytime I am getting transferred through different numbers.. then they all of a sudden hang up on me. I have tried litterally 3 times to get through, and before i make bad decisions of what I really wanted to tell them I gave up.

 

So any info on this webinar guys would be much appreciated. I am totally getting tossed around here.. So annoyed....

The webinar was held on Satuday by Tammy the host of this site with Daniela from the resort and Pilar from Jade.  I think Tammy was recording it and going to post it somewhere on here. Basically, it went through the packages and different ceremony site locations, etc.

 

She and Tammy both did discuss how they prioritize and that the weddings that are closer in date get priority, etc and they typically don't need to start planning flowers, etc until a month or less out.

 

Trust me, I understand your pain. I'm leaving in 2 weeks and still don't have any clue! ha

Hi everyone...the more I research both NOW Jade and NOW Sapphire, the more I'm leaning towards Sapphire. I like the ceremony and reception locations better I think. Has anyone been to both resorts and can offer your perspective? Is anyone having their ceremony on the "beach deck"? I'd rather NOT get married in the sand, I know I know...I'm at a beach...but I want to wear cute shoes! :)

 

annkho - I sent them an email and it took them a couple days before sending the wedding package info. I asked about available dates and still nothing...I'm hoping my travel agent has better luck! I'm at a computer all day so it's hard not to get antsy!!

 

avong1228 - I hope you don't mind that I took a peek at your website, it's awesome! I love the style of it..what service did you use? That's one of the next things on our list to do...

hi there-

 

i am actually getting married at the now sapphire on february 19, 2011.  we actually haven't been there before but our best friends went there on their honeymoon and they loved it and we have some other friends who have been there before also and loved it.  i really didn't look into the now jade too much because once i saw the now sapphire (which was paradisus at the time we started looking) i just fell in love with the overall look of the resort, it has sort of a spanish feel to it which i really liked.  we are getting married on the beach and then having our cocktail hour and reception on the beach terrace (so i can switch into my cute shoes! ha!).  

 

good luck with all your planning! :)

February is supposed to be perfect weather there...I wish I could say that for October, which is when we're looking. I'll be praying to the weather gods for the next year!!! How many people are you expecting at your wedding?

we are excited to be getting married in february, it will be a nice little break from the cold weather in new jersey for our family and friends.  so far we have about 34 people booked including my fiance and i but we are expecting a few more to be booking, so we are guessing around 50 people or so which is a pretty good number.  it will be here before we know it i am so excited! :)

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • 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.
