    More info...

    Dinner

    For a wedding group larger than 25 people, the chef needs the Bride & Groom to choose a fixed menu. This applies also for a rehearsal dinner or any other group dinner that they decided to have. We usually give 2 or 3 different options for every menu. In case someone in the group is allergic or vegetarian please advice.

    The restaurants in the IB. Paraiso Lindo & Maya can not be in private. We share them with the rest of our guests of the hotel. At the IB. Paraiso Lindo & Maya Iberostar does not offer open air dinners (beach or other open air spaces). Long pants are required for gentleman. Children under 12 years old are not allowed at the Gourmet Restaurants “El Museo” or “L´etoile” at the IB. Paraiso Lindo & Maya

    Special Events

    Cocktails can be held only in the areas assigned for those purposes. None of the lobby bars at the IB. Paraiso Lindo & Maya hotels such as the Melody, Kukulkan or Acuario can be used as private rooms for events. The service in every bar is offered for all our guests. The rental from the Galaxy Disco is only from 8:30pm to 10:30pm upon availability.

      Muchas gracias (I'm practicing) !!!
      I know I came across this info before. I believe I received if in an email from the WC when I initially secured my wedding date.

      Now my million dollar question is..... What does the Aqua Bar "Las Olas" or Shopping Center Square look like?
      Does anyone have any pics? Any descriptions? Has anyone heard anything about these two locations?

        jpitts, thanks again!!! I was afraid the fixed menu would limit the group to only one dinner selection (with the exception of dietery needs). I can breathe a sigh of relief now. I can work with two, of course three would be better. :-)

        One less thing to worry about (& I'll probably add 5 more by the end of the day).

          I was worried about the meal as well. I think we have to let the resort know ahead of time who is ordering what & provide them with a seating arrangement, do you gals know if this is correct?

            Another question girls... (or maybe I just wanted us back on page 1...LOL) Seriously though, do you guys know what the resort does for decorating if you choose to not bring your own stuff?

                I think the aqua bar is the one that has the aquarium. I believe there was a picture of it on the iberostar website, but it doesn't say Aqua Bar or anything like on the picture so who knows. I don't know about the others.

                I just asked about the dinner selection. We have 30 people, and selected the Steakhouse for our wedding dinner restaurant. We selected the steak dinner, but were able to request a fish dinner for FI's parents who don't eat meat on Friday, and chicken dinners for FI and I since we don't eat steak. We also requested chicken nugget dinners for the kids (we have 5 attending). The WC just said we need to have placecards and let her know who gets what dinner.

                  hey ladies. do you know anything about photographers? i think i read somewhere (and now i can't find it anywhere!!!) that the tucan does not allow outside photographers... this scares me! lol- i am wondering if i can see their in-house work, and what it would take to get a TTD session scheduled.

                  any ideas? what are your photog plans?

                    I'm not sure about the Tucan photographer, but here is the website for the Lindo photoshop:

                    Foto Caribbean - Riviera Maya

                    We are hiring an outside photographer (Citlalli Rico), but we have to pay a $300 fee to the resort for doing this. We initially planned on using the resort photographer due to our budget, but decided to go over budget for our pictures since that will be what we have left after the wedding day. I really like the photojournalist style photos so to me it is worth the extra money. We will be getting 6 hours on the wedding day and a 2 hour TTD shoot. We get all our digital negatives so we will be able to make photobooks for our friends and family that came to the wedding as a thank you/Christmas gift when we get back.

                    We are hiring the resort videographer, but I haven't seen any of their work. Have any of you seen any wedding videos?
