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?

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.

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...

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?

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!

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.
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
