Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Yay! My Save the Dates went out today. They are simple, but I love them! They had magnets on the back and a travel info card inside as well. And the best part is that they were scented and smell like coconuts!

I'M BAAAAAAACCCK!

What's up Melissa, Becks, New Brides! :)

It's so good to read all of your posts, I apologize for being gone for so long. THE WEDDING WAS FANTASTIC - THE HONEYMOON WAS FANTASTIC, and I finally started a thread of part 1 of my wedding review. I really missed you All! I have so many photos, it took over 2 weeks to go through them all. I'm still waiting on my photos from Citlalli sad.gif, but it's OK, I have lots of photos from friends and family, so I'm back I'm here to help, and stay tuned to Part 2 of my review coming this weekend. If I can HELP YOU OUT WITH ANYTHING AT ALL - Please PM me, send me an e-mail (madenerg2@aol.com), or I'll give you my phone number and we can chat! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! WE CHOSE A SUPERIOR WEDDING RESORT! :) I look forward to chatting with you!

 

Oh! And Congratulations on your wedding this weekend Michele!

 

P.S. Can someone please tell me how to make these pictures smaller, I just started using photobucket today!

So it' sofficial I booked my date with Paradisus. I am so thrilled. May 23rd 2009. We are heading down there next week but FI and I just decided that we needed to secure the date becuase we both got paranoid about losing that weekend and figured that we were really just leaning towards no other resort. I spoke with Perla today and will be staying there as well next week. Yay. Just thought I would share. Choosing a destination has seriously been grueling for us! Well me mainly because FI doesn't do much research. I on the other hand am crazy reading EVRYONE'S reviews etc. So now onto the fun stuff! STD'S smile72.gif

I'm new to the board, but I'm so excited to hear everything about your wedding. So far the first two parts have been great. I'm happy to hear you had such a good time and can't wait to hear the rest! You look so beautiful in your pictures. Your dress is great! Can't wait to read more...

LeShay-Congratulations!!! Your wedding turned out amazing. I love hearing all of the details, and I would love to see your binder as well!!

 

I spent this past weekend at the Paradisus meeting with Perla and Elisa and we had a wonderful time! I LOVE THEM!! I am more excited than ever now and feel more confident than ever that my wedding will be Perfect! Any doubts and concerns I had were all wiped away after meeting with Perla and Elisa! And I got to see Michelle's wedding!

 

Our room was very nice. We had an oceanview room and our sheets were turned down with nice Jazz music playing on the tv when we arrived back to our rooms each night. The rooms are a great size and the patios are great! Also, because it was raining a lot, the golf carts were always around to pick you up and take you to breakfast or to the front of the resor to catch a taxi.

 

 

It rained pretty much all weekend, and although I didnt' get much sun I am glad I got to see first hand how the Paradisus operates in case of rain! The backup open air covered Gazebo worked beautifully for Michelle's wedding and they also have the theater which can be set up gorgeous for a ceremony too. If it rains, I would actually choose the theater as my back up location.

 

When we arrived on Friday morning we immediately met with Perla. She took us on a tour of the resort which is breathtaking! I really like the fact that it is big but not overwhelming. Also, it doesn't cater to loud "Spring Break" crowds which is great. Our meeting with Perla went well and I would suggest everyone setting up a meeting in person if you can. It was so easy to get all of my questions answered. We went over tons of questions and picked out fabric colors. I brought fabric samples from home and she cut pieces off of it so she can get it matched for the Gazebo and the Bows on the chairs. We also got to look through tons of pictures of other weddings. They can pretty much do ANYTHING you want (for the right price of course!)

 

We ate at the Carribean Marketplace, The Snack Bar, Sumire, and The Reef Grill. All of the food we ate was great. I was very impressed with how good the buffet was. For a buffet, it is very nice and they change the menu daily! Sumire was wonderful! The sushi was very fresh and they bring you so much food! We had the fried Ice Cream (yummy!) and Coffee Jello (Not my favorite) for dessert! The Reef Grill was good too! The Ribeye was good and the Pork Spare Ribs were okay.

 

We also had a Wedding Tasting with Elisa one night. Here we tasted the Empanadas, The Mini Chicken Tacos, and The Quesadillas, which were all good. We also tasted the Squid and Octopus in Garlic Sauce and The Beef in Three Peppercorn Sauce. The Squid and Octopus were excellent. The Beef was very very good but I didn't like the Sauce. Elisa didn't like it either and suggested we have it without the sauce. I agree! We also got to taste both the Vanilla and Chocolate Wedding cakes which are sooooooo delicious. I brought Perla a picture of how I wanted it decorated and she gave it to the Chef!

 

Also, I got to hear SWANK at Michelles wedding and they were doing a fantastic job. Everyone looked like they were having so much fun.

 

Paradisus Brides-Feel Great that you have chosen the best resort for your big day. It truly is magical!!!

Thanks Kelly and Future Mrs. Jones. I'm so glad you had a great experience on your site visit. I'm posting part 3 now...

I just tried to upload my wedding detail binder for you (it's a word file), and it failed. If you'd liked to see it, please PM me your address and I'll send it directly to you.

Have a great day!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
