    Just thought I would make a thread for us since there doesn't seem to be too much info on here regarding PR.

    I will be married in PR at the Hotel El Convento in Old San Juan.
    San Juan Hotels, Puerto Rico Luxury Vacations & PR Room Reservations - Hotel El Convento

    I'll be posting what I like & which vendors I will be using in this thread.

    Afterwards, we will be sailing on our honeymoon aboard the Carnival Victory out of SJ.

    Any other PR Brides?

        ...oops! I absolutely did not mean to disrespect the forum's rules. It's a natural instinct that I must learn to curb while on here.

        El Convento is lovely. Be sure to take advantage of the "Rogativa" area that's just a short walk down the road from the Hotel's main entrance. It is a wonderful place to have photographs taken after the ceremony. "Paseo Princesa" is also nearby, although a bit more of a walk from the hotel. El Convento itself affords some unique old Spanish Colonial arquitecture that lends itself to photo ops.

        You will absolutely enjoy your wedding experience there.

              Thanks for the info!
              Hopefully, the forts aren't too far either since I would like pictures in front of El Morro, at least.

                  Hello, I was wondering if you had a wedding coordinator and if so who you went with? Also what D.J are you using?

                    I am going to PR the end of September to look at venues. I am going to take a look at El Convento. It looks beautiful but how did you choose this place over others?
