Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

You are not alone. I freak out constantly wondering if I made the right choice and if my guests will be happy. I know no matter how much I plan and put into things guests will have something to complain about (its in peoples nature) but I cant help but still freak. I think its also exactly what Becks said we arent there to see things for ourselves so we have to put our trust in a photo or word of mouth and hope its what we are looking for. Its tough but I think we can handle it or we wouldnt of followed through with a destination wedding in the first place.

Melissa all packages are symbolic only. The legal ceremony is $900-1000 additional (cant remember the exact price right now) and that is why a lot of couples opt to marry at home first and have a symbolic at their destination (no one will know unless you tell them). We are having a legal ceremony is anyone else? I am curious what paperwork we need etc. I did print out the link from Paradisus on what you need I was just curious if anyone has actually spoken to Perla about this and I havent asked her yet, just going by the website link.

Oh and Perla just got back to me today about the contract. Im not sure if she totally ignored my question but her response was "I can make any changes I want up to a week before the wedding after that no changes can be made." So I guess that means no contracthuh.gif? So confused.

I'm glad you brought up stress! Why did my body perform it's own version of the Master Cleanse on itself for the entire day on Saturday. I know my bathroom all too well now! It must've been food poisoning. Who would've guessed you can catch it from too much fiber!!! So I realized I was stressing myself about EVERY DETAIL of wedding planning, so I decided to take Sunday off. And now I'm back. And happily 4lbs lighter :)

SWANK is the DJ company that PAradisus uses - its $1250 for the DJ and all equipment!

Our wedding website is Our Wedding Website. Feel free to check it out!

On another note both of your wedding websites are so fun. I have to admit I plagarized mine when I created it (Im not very good with words) thank god for the copy paste function hehehe. Before I put ours up I googled other wedding websites to see what I found helpful and fun and added that. I hope your FI changes his mine Im sure he will its a great place for your guests to get answers and updates. Here is ours Michele & Charlie - wedding website by mywedding.com

Copy away ladies!

 

We are doing the legal ceremony as well - I cannot lie to anyone in my family so getting married at home just isn't an option for us! I ammm sooo relieved to hear that I am not the only one with regular wedding-induced diarrhea - sorry ladies - I had to say it!

LeShay you are too cute - Ben was looking at the site and says "I am assuming since I know nobody named LeShay that this is one of your "forum friends" (see finger quotes and eye rolls!)

LOL Melissa your FI is too funny. Its true though you know we are all guilty of referring to one another as "my friends on the forum." hehehehehe

 

So Perla confirmed the reception to be 4 hours long. I started freaking out b/c we have a 1 hour cocktail reception and no music, which I personally think is odd. When I asked my FI he said cocktail receptions are suppose to be quiet its a chance for guests to get to know one another and mingle. Do you think it will be odd to have a cocktail reception with no music? or am I just being a crazy person?

I cant add a mariachi or anything it will put us over budget maybe I can do a CD player that the hotel will rent out to me for like $400. smile120.gif

Interesting b/c Perla told me we could have the terrace as late as we wanted - I don't want to finish everything at 10:00 pm... is she referring to the after dinner portion?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
