If you have any questions on various ports - let me know! Congrats on the big day!
I would love to hear your recommendations! We are taking Royal Caribbean/Adventure of the Seas. It goes to the Southern Caribean (Aruba, Curacao, Dominica, etc..)

I've stayed at El San Juan and really enjoyed it. There is a small mall, casino, great pools, great restaurants, etc. What price range are you looking for? I think I paid $150/night but only stayed a few days. I prefer to stay at At Windchimes Inn in Condado personally.

Aruba and Curacao are great destinations - it's a desert climate so you get the cactus and everything. The downtown areas are great since they have the Dutch - Carribean theme. Other islands that are my favorites are Barbados, Antigua, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, and St. Martin - I've done quite a few of the excursions from the ships as well.

I have a few questions on the El Convento and I know a few of my fellow PR brides are getting married there. To me it's the perfect location since it's close to the church and the people attending will probably enjoy more the old town feel vs. the beach. The pictures on the website are beautiful.

 

I talked to a wedding coordinator who was trying to talk us out of it and I'm not sure if it's because she doesn't have the relationships there? She was making it sound like it is run-down. Any advise would be appreciated. My party will be small - around 30 people and that Salon Matorell would have made a great place for a small reception.

 

Thanks in advance!!

I didn't marry at El Convento but I have been there twice and think it is beautiful and NOT rundown. Did the coordinator give you specifics on what is less than optimal or why she feels the way she does? When I almost switched venues last minute, El Convento was very kind, prompt and helpful. I would ask for details.

I appreciate the quick responses - it makes me feel much better as their Salon Martorell seems beautiful for a small gathering and the location is ideal for the group I expect to come. The coordinator said that the hotel needed a paint job and that it was overrated...perhaps she didn't have a good experience there? Everyone has different taste and I'm not expecting a place that's brand new!

 

Evie - I received a price list from them - do they negotiate and are you using them as your hotel as well?

Yes, we are using them as the hotel. We were able to negotiate a little but not much. But many of our guests are staying in other locations on the beach. I stayed there one night and really enjoyed it. Their nightly wine and cheese hour is so nice. They have an honor bar, a plunge pool that is open 24 hours, good mojitos, and it is near nice restaurants, etc.. I found the staff to be friendly. It has an intimate feel to it. There are small tables outside of the hotel rooms overlooking the lower floors and the atrium (I am not describing it well). If you want to have a quiet morning with coffee you can sit there. It is very romantic! The hotel is colorful, with lots of plants-pretty.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
