        Congrats, Lauren! Sounds like a beautiful wedding! Can't wait to see your pics. Quick question about your rehearsal dinner - did you guys pay to have a special event at the Mexican restaurant? I'm trying to avoid paying for this and instead just do an "all-inclusive" dinner for us and our guests. We're expecting 35 adults and 9 kids. In order to do this we'd most likely be split up into separate tables, but just after dinner we could have all our guests reconvene near a bar area (maybe outside?) to give the toasts and gifts.

        Abegail, Welcome! I'm getting nervous about all the details too - making decisions and communicating them to Perla - yikes! We're doing the iPod thing with our own playlists and we also want to air our concert DVDs on the slideshow screen. We're looking into hiring someone to "man" this. Maybe a DJ - not sure yet.

        Bumbles, we're doing the Chill-Out on the Terrace with a buffet, but our quote didn't include open bar. We're paying extra for that. Any advice on what we should do?

        As always, all of your help is much appreciated!!!

          Hi everyone! I am seriously considering this location for our small wedding reception in May 2010.

          What are some rates you are getting for the guest rooms? I was trying to get lower than $400 per night per couple....

          THANKS :)

            My date is Oct 16! Perla never responds to me and I need serious help! are you guys using dj's? I am having 40 adults and 3 kids and doing chill out chic on the terrace. Do they just decorate however you want?

            is it normal that Perla has come off as unhelpful?

            Thanks... im getting nervous about the details
            Hey Abegail,

            Not to worry. They will decorate everything however you want it, whether you bring your own decorations or pay to use the resorts. Perla is usually much more responsive the closer your day is. As long as you have an idea of what you want, she can get everything done rather quickly. I dont think she has dropped the ball yet for any of the brides on the forum. Good luck with your planning. Check out the search tool at the top of the forum. There are many reviews from other brides about Paradisus if you want to check them out. :)

              Hi, I have e-mailed through the paradisus website and have not heard back from anyone (it's only been 2 days but I feel quite impatient)... does anyone have a direct e-mail address for a WC at the Paradisus?

              Also -- I'm considering this and a few other resorts -- the barcelo maya palace, the grand palladium, & the ocean turquesa... any advice on which is best? Or I guess since this is the paradisus thread, why did you choose the paradisus over some of the others?

              (and I was 99.9% set on the Barcelo palace until I started looking around more and discovered the paradisus, the turquesa, and the grand palladium..... )

              Have you met Alice?

                Hi Ladies,

                congrats to all you brides!

                I just recently had to switch my hotel from the Grand Riviera Princess to the Paradisus Riviera due to flight/wedding day scheduling issues. It has been a really stressful time for me and my FI. We are hopefully still getting married the last week in November- still waiting for the hotel availability.(crossing my fingers things will work out).

                I was wondering if any one had any informaton on the wedding packages prices, wedding locations options, advise etc that would be willing to share. for some reason I can't open the attachements on this forum. (my email is : parissa.giahinejad@cibc.com).

                I would really appreciate any information you can share!

                Bride to be,

                    OK paradisus brides -- who is having the Aqua package and if you are, were you able to switch the menu around? Here's the info I got from the WC:

                    Hors D´oeuvres:
                    Shrimp with Pineapple
                    Tuna mousse on toasted rounds
                    Prosciutto with Melon Pearls
                    The Aqua Menu:
                    Green mix salad
                    Rigatoni Pomodoro
                    Baked fish in tomato and basil sauce

                    Honestly the apps sound okay but the dinner sounds not that great (for $90pp after 20 people) -- so I'm wondering if anyone was able to change up the menu or hors d'ouevres ?

                    I have people attending that don't eat seafood (not allergic, just don't like it) and would like to have a meat option.. .

                      Hi Girls - I found this not too long ago on the Paradisus resorts website. You may have already seen it, but thought I'd pass it along. It's their newest downloadable brochure (PDF). http://www.paradisus...usEBrochure.pdf

                      Also, here's the link to their romance packages - Paradisus All Inclusive Luxury Resorts - Weddings Packages at Paradisus Resorts - All-Inclusive Wedding Destinations

                      I'm pretty sure you can modify the menus for all the packages, though you may pay more.

                      Also, we're thinking of doing a sunset ceremony. Can anyone tell me a specific time to print on the invitations? Or I'm open to suggestions if you think there's a better time before sunset. Any advice helps!
