    Avong, that sounds like such a swell idea. How much was that if you don't mind me asking? I don't like the idea of OOT bags and the stress that comes with it, because we already have to translate everything from English to Portuguese, i don't need more work or extra expense on traveling with that. I was thinking of the excursion as a nice gift to all that made it out there.

     

    DJ Doremixx has good reviews, just lately - not to bad mouth him- he has some complaints on not showing up, his other coworkers show up instead and he'll come toward the end of the night. So I guess be specific in requesting Ivan.

      I'm a 2012 bride :) August 24. I think the Now offered the terrance which is gorgeous and it's nice to have a seperate reception/ceremony within a close proximity which not many resorts have. That's why we're selecting the terrace for the reception and beach for ceremony. That's ideal. Good luck with all the planning. You can lock in your date by March.

      I still have plenty of time to send in my reservation request to Sandra, but I do want to lock in my date so I have to narrow down my ceremony, cocktail an reception locations.

       

      As far as the reception goes, does anyone know if you need to rent a dance floor for the Tequila Terrace because I know the wooden slats might not be good for dancing.  Also, has anyone seen the Beach Terrace decorated for a reception at night with the tables and maybe lighting?

       

      Also, does anyone know that if I choose the highest package, I think it's the Divine package, is there any additional/hidden costs for the reception dinner or is the entire dinner included with the dessert and drinks also?

       

      I know I could just email Sandra with my questions, but I figured you girls might get back to me sooner.  :-)

       

      Any other 2012 Saphire Brides out there??

       

      Thanks!!!

        Thanks babestaaa!  Happy planning to you too! 

        Did you choose the tequila terrace or the beach terrace?

          Good to know I'm not the only early planner. I am going next Month on a site visit to Now Sapphire. Hopefully all goes well. I've been in touch with Sandra and she's very nice. For the 2012 brides have you booed anything else? I'm also researching photographers and hair and makeup as well :)

              Maritza, the photographer that is included in the wedding packages are good, ask for Jhankarlo (he works for adventure photos) If you don't book a package, then they have their own packages. I wonder if they're still offering free photo session, that way you and your fiance can try him out. I'm very particular about photography and was ready to book Elizabeth Medina for $6k..but he floored me with his work! I loved it!

               

              Amy G, I didn't know they had different names for the terraces lol but I guess the beach terrace.

                  Yes, I believe there is a Tequila Terrace, a Beach Terrace and maybe a Pool Terrace. 

                   

                  Any other brides out there know the differences between these and any recommendations?
