Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We are trying to figure out how PRC will allow us to use our IPOD for music for the beach ceremony, post cocktail party, and dinner/dance on the terrace.

 

We had emailed Perla a few days ago and asked if we needed to bring any cords or wires for the ipod to connect to there sound system.

 

She replied "you will need to rent a sound system"; but we thought this was included?

 

 

Can anyone from past expereinces or in the know about this IPOD situation at the PRC speak to this?

 

 

I guess we need to know if we need too bring anything else for the IPOD?

 

 

 

We also need to know what exactly the PRC does for people who use IPODs? what the sound system is like and there experince?

 

 

Thanks,

Julia & Ryan

 

 

 

We all done; see you there except for this

 

 

see you there

I also want to find out how to dim the terrace lights. I was thinking maybe paper lanterns? Someone posted some LED paper lanterns (I need to find that thread again) Hmm fanny maybe we could split the cost since you are there right before me??

I am leaning towards a paper OOT bag. I don't know yet- again it's a bout minimal packing for me so we'll see.

Hi Yamille - Do you know how much the fantasy centerpieces are?

Fanny & yamille,

 

I just realized we will all be at Paradisus at roughly the same time. We are getting married May 20th, 2009 and originally were planning on getting married at the resort but now have decided to use Caribbean Blue Weddings and get married in Playa Del Carmen. We'll still be at the resort though for 11 days though.

Hi! Welcome back!

 

I'm considering the Paradisus and would love to get your thoughts! We're looking at about 100 guests which seems to be ruling out more options than not, so I'd love any input you could provide.

 

Congratulations!

I believe they are included in the Fantasy package. I'm not sure how much the package is exactly right now. I want to say $1400?

Very cool. What made you decided to have an offsite wedding- just curious. I thought of that too initially way back when i was first looking but decided against.

Welcome back!! Sounds like you had a great time. can't wait for pics!


Glavas:
Regarding the IPOD- I believe when you rent the "sound system" It's something like $400 (don't quote me) and it included any wires etc and someone from SWANK to run your ipod. BTW you have to do it this way. I don't think that you can sidestep the sound system part. Kelly was doing this I think so maybe she will respond when she gets back from her wedding.

I have about ten people booked, a lot more to go. The clors I chose are yellow and gold. We're having yellow BM dresses, floor length chiffon, and yellow floral arrangements. High yellow orchid CP's with gold accents, like table chargers and possibly the tiffany chairs. We're also planning on having the classical three peice band play for the ceremony and the steel drummer for the cocktail hour. Anyone hear anything about these guys? When we were down there we got to hear the guitarist play the ceremony, but unfortunately that was it. Oh and John's favorite part, a cigar rolling station. It's all so expensive, but we figure we're only gonna do it once right??

 

Has anyone used mannia as their DJ company or heard anything about them?? Sorry if these are redundant questions, but I'm new to the site and still getting familiar with it.

 

Thanks!

 

Sam

I used Mannia!!! And we LOOOOOOOOVED him! Carlos was the best. Responded immediately to any questions I had, met with us both for our site visit as well as pre-wedding. He played exactly what we wanted (it wasn't a huge list) and filled in extra time with appropriate music.

 

Also, he cut our first dance for us - started with about 30 second of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and then cut to "My First, My Last, My Everything".

 

AND, he gave us copies of all the stuff he played pre-wedding, the cocktail hour and our first dance music (as cut). And really, he's the NICEST guy you'd ever want to meet.

Thanks Becks! We just sent him the deposit and I was a little nervous. We were having some problems with SWANK and wanted to find someone better to suit our needs, so thanks again for the reassurance, music is so important to us.

 

HOOSIERFAN, I'm planning on having 80 guests or so, so I can relate to the large group. We have to do everything a la carte so to say, the packages are made for groups over 40, but its working out okay. Perla will work with you on everyhting you need. If your looking to have your wedding outside on the Tequilla Grill it holds up to 150 she said and you always have the beach. Good luck!
