That was my thought on having the ceremony at 3:30. I may sneek off at sunset for a photo or two...but people should be eating at that point so it won't be a big deal.
    I have read on here that the lighting on the terrace is good...is this correct?

      The lighting is good, better than I expected. I brought down paper lanterns that were hung from the ceiling and ended up telling Perla that is wasn't necessary to actually turn them on. My guests ended up turning them on anyway, but it wasn't necessary.

        I have those too but it is just for decor. So if i'm serving dinner at night it should be fine right? Plus i have three candles on my centerpieces.

            Yeah, you will be fine with lighting.

            I got them from Pier1. It was no problem getting them down there. I just wrapped everything in tissue paper and had two suitcases dedicated to wedding stuff. I checked my bags since we had a direct flight. Even if for some reason they didn't make it to Mexico it wouldn't have been that big a deal to me. I had my dress and that was really the only necessity.

              Quick question - does Paradisus provide sound system for the ceremony or should I include that amount of time for the ceremony when reserving dj services?

                Kelly- you mentioned the beds are really hard at paradisus..
                i stayed there twice..You could call up the front desk and ask them for a bed cushion to make it softer.its like a pillow to. a friend of mine gave me that tip before we went there..she had a hard bed too..

                so future brides if you like a soft bed just ask for the bed cushion

                  They did provide a sound system for our ceremony and there wasn't an extra charge for this.
