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!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
