Paradisus Riviera Brides - POST HERE!
Posted 26 November 2008 - 04:46 PM
I know there are wedding coordinators in the Riviera Maya who set up weddings on beaches all the time. One is Caribbean Blue Weddings(www.caribbeanblueweddings.com)- they can suggest several locations- I know they use a beach in Playacar just past Playa del Carmen. Then they work with several restaurants in Playa del Carmen for receptions too, if you needed that. If you don't mind traveling a little further, Al Cielo is a wonderful private spot with a beautiful beach and gourmet restaurant (email@example.com). It's about an hour south of Paradisus, north of the ruins in Tulum by about 20-30 minutes.

We booked the wish package when we confirmed our wedding back in June of this year and at the time we were given the 2008 prices - we have now been given the 2009 prices and our wondering what everyone else is being charged?

thats a great question. We booked ours last Feburary 2008 for January 2009 at the 2008 rates. We are also curious about this.
We talked to Perla and Elisa and requested the Aqua package; we put down the 50% required for deposit to hold the date. Thats where we are now. We have of course traded some emails back and forth but thats merely it.
I emailed perla last thursday and i still havent heard from here yet. I shouldn't have to fly down there to talk to her. I know this is probably the busy season but we need answers to our questions.
From what Robin has said; you can take of most of this stuff in a hour or 2 planning the ceremony.
Were curious about the updated amentities list? photography prices? and if there is a open bar included in the packages for the 5 hours?
The Open bar kindof throws me off b/c its an allinclusive resort; therefore our guasts can get free drinks anywhere on the resort. The only thing we would be paying for is maybe a special brand or for the bartenders time?
I need someone to explain that one to me.

Can either of you confirm the 2009 prices and the open bar issue is part of the package or is it seperate $10 pp / hr?

We are also doing a custom package so I can't answer about the charge for the bar in addition to the package price. Email Perla. She may take a little while to get back to you, but she will definitely answer all of your questions. Personally, I have found it easier to send one long email with a bunch of questions rather than several small emails.
I'm a pretty laid back bride and am really excited about the fact that I'm not going to make anything final until I get to Mexico in January. So I probably don't have a lot of answers for some of you. As long as at the end of the day we are married, not much matters to me in the way of details. (its driving my family who wants to know everything crazy lol) I have no idea if the prices she's given me are 2008 or 2009. I will be printing out my emails and bringing them down with me so there is no question how much the things I have decided on will cost. I figure that will be enough.

Take a look at the excel spread sheet. I think its only for the duration of the wedding.
Some people are flying photographers down there. It may be cheaper since you know what your getting. But it seems Perla and her gang have tapped some pretty good photographers.
