    Hello ladies,

    last night I started to review the pages of this forum (for a second time) and only just realised that the ceremony in the package is not a legal one...! I know we could have a legal ceremony but at a very steep cost, $1000 USD.

    After a long discussion with my FI we had decided that we may need to review our resort options. The cost of Paradisus may be a little more than we had planned. The fact the resort only does one wedding a day is very attractive, but their costs are just so high and they really do seem to charge for every little thing. It is tough because we may not know exactly what we want to change to a package for the next couple of months and then the cost of our destination wedding is too much for us to attend!

    Thank you all for your wonderful comments and all the information. I will stop by and try to read your posts even though I may have to join a new thread elsewhere.

    LAURENANDBILL - have a wonderful day and I will watch for your review and photos!

    It has been great chatting with you all and Missy, I too refer to you all as my Forum Friends/People when chatting with my FI! hehe

            Hi Ladies,

            I don't get a chance to get on much, but I do read all the posts via email. You all do post some great info, and I love it. I was wondering if any of the brides who've already been married at PRC used the in house photographer, and if so, have you posted your pictures? John and I are using their photgrapher, and I just want to be sure we're making the right decision, especially after viewing all of the wonderful slide shows from other photographers.

            Thanks for the help!

              Aw, thanks ladies! :)

              SD - Ask Perla about the bigger gazebo they have built/are building at the resort. She said it was built to for Mayan wedding ceremony that they offer, but perhaps you can use it for a regular ceremony. Sorry, I didn't get to see it and take pictures! We got married on the sand and it as so nice! I didn't wear shoes, so walking on sand wasn't a problem.

              SamG - sorry I don't have any info on the resort's photog

              Lauren - You're only a few weeks away ---- EXCITING!

                I did not use the house photographer so I can't comment on that and I also got married on the sand with no shoes.

                I had no trouble walking... it's sand so I mean I probably didn't look super glam but that wasn't my goal.

                Lauren- The starfish is on it's way. :)

                    So I was thinking about having fire dancers perform during the reception as a surprise for all my guests. But looking back through the thread, it seems they aren't allowed at the hotel because of the palapas. Dang! Missy, I think I saw you mention that Perla said she had an idea for a performance...I haven't found yet if you posted what that was. Could you let me know if she got back to you on that?
