    So we've booked our Wedding at the Paradisus for the first week of January. I'm just reading some recent reviews at Trip Advisor, people are saying that the service is poor, and the pool is extremely cold...

    Just wondering if anyone can provide me with some more information.

    Thanks.

      Kimmie-the service is wonderful..we stayed there twice and that is why we chose the paradisus to get married. The people there are so friendly, ,beautful landscaping, excellent resturants.

      The pool is refreshing on a hot day.. Its perfect temperture..

      You will love it..

        Thanks so much for quick reply. I really appreciate it. Thanks for the reassurance. I guess Trip Advisor can be a little deceiving sometimes. The resort looks beautiful.

        We have picked the Aqua package with the reception on the tequila terrace and the ceremony on the beach.

        Any advice on things we should upgrade/ pay extra for? Also any suggestions on Photographers?

        Thanks

          Becks your website is amazing! I hope to hear great things in the coming months. I will definitely pass your info on to some of my friends that are get married soon and aren't on the board!

          Kimmie congratulations on being a Paradisus Bride!! Don't worry about what trip advisor says. It will drive you mad! There have been so many girls on this board with positive things to say that I would feel very confident in your choice! I can't help you with photographers since some of my friends (who are photogs) will be coming down to shoot for me.

              Hey ladies,
              Has anyone brought down their own chair sashes? If so, did the staff arrange them for you- was it worth the hassle? I'm thinking about it...
              Thanks!

                Kimmie, congrats and welcome. I am also looking at booking for January, but towards the end of it. Question for you...were you already able to get prices for that time? I'm finding that the most frustrating, as I've been told the prices won't come out till May or June and I have people driving me nuts asking me.

                Also, has anyone else run into less then supportive in-laws when it comes to a destination wedding? Mine haven't been excited about the idea from the start. I try to include my FMIL, but every time I talk to her, I feel like she is trying to find some excuse to get us to get married here. Tonight I brought her an info package on the Paradisus and she looked at some of the prices and said 'You know, you could always get married here and then the two of you can go down there to renew your vows'. I keep hoping she'll give up and realize that I'm not changing my mind and she'll concentrate more on being excited. I think tonight made me realize it's time to give up on that idea. And she wonders why I didn't bring her dress shopping with me?

                  Welcome and congrats Kimmie! There are so many great photogs in the RM region. Two popular ones are Elizabeth Medina and Del Sol Photography.

                  Yamille, I remember reading a few post-wedding reviews where Paradisus setup their chair sashes and centerpieces without a problem.

                  SMB, I hope your FMIL will get more excited once she realizes how FUN a dw can be! Meanwhile, you've got a support group here who are excited for you and love to share ideas!

                  Happy Monday, everyone!

                    Hi SMB&CRZ,

                    Both my mom amd my MIL were definitely hesitant about the whole DW concept- I ended up taking my mom down for a site visit in November before the wedding (Jan) to finalize everything, and so she could see we were not dealing with a totally undeveloped country, etc.- it was the best move I ever made! She came back saying "hola!". That being said, even if she hadn't been able to come down prior, i knew she and everyone else would love it once they got there, and some would stay skeptical until they arrived- that's just how some people are (afarid of change, etc), and we can't change them- so don't let them get to you (but also don't expect them to be supportive until they're at the resort, that way you won't be disappointed ). Hope this helps!

                      Ok so everything was great at Paradisus they did not make me pay for the swank invoice all they charged me was the 300.00... They treated me like a queen and everything was beautiful...I loved it. The only advice i have is make sure you double check everything and stick to your e-mails because unfortunatelly they don't treat everyone the same. Both Daniela and Perla where great and my wedding was beautiful. Can't wait for the pics.....The resort is very beautiful....very happy we picked that hotel.
                      Welcome back!!!!
                      I hope your wedding was everything and more!!

                      I am curious to know how your flowers worked out b/c I think you went with Julietta right
