Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

:) This is so exciting. I feel like there is so much to do, and May will be here before I know it. What time is your ceremony? Currently, mine is scheduled for 5:30. 1/2 for ceremony, 1 hour of cocktail party with dinner to begin at 7. Is that too late?

  • What photographer are you using?
  • Do you have a 2009 menu and amenities list? I emailed Daniela, but anxious to see what's available!
  • Finally, last question for today. Are you using a travel agent?

This so much fun yet a little scary to be planning everything so far in advance and from so far away! I love hearing about everyone's weddings!

 

Okay, now time for me to contribute something! Save the Date Boarding Pass cards. The template is from Aylee Designs, the palm tree from google, msg from a sample card, and I made the turtle graphic myself! Let me know if you want me to email it to you. I never seem to have enough points to open attachments, so I understand!

Fanny- I totally know what you mean about time flying by... I'm sure it will but I really don't want to rush it because I have a very important year of school ahead of me and if I think of what's in between now and the wedding I get totally freaked out cause it involves many hours of internship and a thesis (which I don't yet have a topic for). That's another story...

 

I think my ceremony is tentatively scheduled for 6:00. We want it right before sunset so we are going to check on the sunset times for the area closer to our date. We also are having a cocktail hour and then dinner following that.

Our photographer is Matt Adcock from Del Sol Photography.

 

I know that I don't have the '09 menus on my computer cause I couldn't find them for Kelly but amenities I think I might. I got a hard copy of eveything when I went down for a site visit so that's why I don't know where anything is. Anyway... if I do find the stuff I will scan and post. I was just going by the '08 stuff (which are posted somewhere in this thread) and know that the prices will be slightly higher.

- yeah I'm a little freaked at planning from far away and whatnot but one of the reasons for us choosing to do it this way is that we are pretty laidback people and while I want to plan- I also sort of just wanna show up. KWIM?

Yamille, I didn't know you had Matt. I have Sol. I'm so excited!

Fanny, Michele emailed me the menu options she had. If you pm me your email address I'd be happy to send them to you.

Just wondering what days were available in June at the Paradisus...Please let me know. Thanks
We wouldn't know that information. You need to contact the paradisus directly and speak to the wedding coordinators. I do know that Fanny said that all the weekends in May '09 are taken. They do one wedding per day. Paradisus

Congrats Fanny on picking a date!

 

Sorry I have been so delinquent on my own thread - we just bought a house and have been out of the province for the week on vacation!

I cannot believe that my wedding is just over 3 months away - YIKERS!

 

We are bringing our photographer with us - Visual Cravings! They are a member of BDW forum as well...

 

Heading down for a site visit in three weeks if anyone has any burning issues - going to do a food tasting, pick linens, flowers etc. and do a hair trial! Cannot wait!

Hey Missy, I'm def. interested in hearing about how your hail trial goes (and would love pics of course lol). Also, FI and I have decided to forgo a dj and just use our ipod with ipod dock. We are having our reception on the deck. IDK if its even possible, but could you get an idea of what the noise level is like in that area (I'm thinking wind and waves etc) to see if what we are thinking will work. I'm afraid the speakers may not be loud enough, but right now we have only 20 people and don't want to spend $ on a dj. So, if there's any info you would have, that'd be great. TIA

Congrats again on the house! So exciting. :)

Missy 3 months-woohoo. You must be getting so excited! I'm jealous that you are going on another site visit. fun!

 

Kelly- when I was there in June Fi and I were trying to get an idea on the speakers as well during a small- 15 ish ppl reception on the terrace and basically the speakers were fine. I mean they didn't have a large loud group and you could hear the surf but it wasn't overwhelming. We are thinking if we have under 40 ppl we will do the ipod. It's an ongoing discussion because I don't want to deal with having to make a playlist but at the same time I think the DJ is a ripoff considering there have been no good reviews and he doesn't even announce anything (MC). I still have a while to decide I guess....

    • 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!
