    Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent salsa band for a wedding on the northwest corner of PR?

      I had a bomba-plena band. They were awesome. You can google their name and see you-tube videos of them. They are called batukealo. For salsa how about:

      I did not use them but they have all sorts of entertainment! Good luck .

            The cruise wedding options in terms of a reception just seem real cheesy to me...I don't want my guest to come so far and not feel satisfied by the reception. We will be cruising on Carnival Victory just like you did...we invited our guest to join us...we don't think many will but is in an option for them

              I don't blame you. I opted out of the cruise wedding because it seemed so cheesey to me. Also, the fact that you can only have 1hr & a half with your guests seemed ridiculous to me, especially for the price.
              Have you looked around at other places?

                I completely agree with you. They want alot of money for little service.

                I'm looking in El Convento and Condado right now. I'm waiting to hear from their WCs.

                      Hi Ladies... I know the posts haven't come in a long time...but help would be awesome!

                       

                      So I'm a very new PR Bride, and have to admit I'm a little freaked out.  We chose PR b/c my groom and I are both Ecuadorian and he has a lot of family/friends still in Ecuador so he wanted to find a place that was somewhat convenient for them to travel to and still had that spanish flare that we both want in a wedding.  I also Love the Island feel and want to do a beach ceremony if possible, but got to admit that never having been there, and not really knowing how things really look/vs. the pictures on their website makes planning a little freaky.  Our budget is slim so our first choice the El Conquistador is out.  Any suggestions on other nice places.  We were thinking of not doing San Juan, just to get away from the down town area...but not reconsidering. 

                       

                      Some of the places we've looked at:

                        Gran Melia Rio Grande, which seems to be our front runner right now... any reviews?

                        La Concha, love the look of the hotel but they haven't gotten back to us on prices yet, any reviews?

                      any other suggestions?

                       

                      suggestions as to coordinators, photographers, decorators, florists, and bakeries would be awesome too.  I was trying to look through all the posts to find some...

                       

                      Thanks so much!!!
