I have been to the decameron last year and its absolutely gorgeous. I have lots of pictures if anyone would like to see them. I also have some of a wedding that was held while were there. They had it on the beach.

We chose the garden for our wedding because its a little more secluded and we found that people were walking in front of the beach wedding getting in the couple's video and pictures. Also we are having our reception at the sushi samba restaurant which is also more secluded and also has a pOol right beside it. if anyone would like to see any pictures let me know and I can post some or email them!
Thanks,
Jen

Hey Amanda+Dave!

 

To help subside your fiances fears of safety. My fiance is from Panama and I have gone there with him to visit family. I did not have any issues with crime and in certain areas of Panama there are actually a lot of retired Canadians and Americans due to the lower living costs. I think this is becoming more and more popular.

Panama city is big and there are areas like any city that you wouldn't walk alone at night. I would be more afraid of the driving then the crime :P

 

In Feb 09 my fiance and I actually rented a car and drove for 7 days through out Panama. Going from Panama city to Punta Chame to El Valle to Boquete to Bocas (boat to the main island) and Back to Panama City. I never felt concerned about crime during this trip. We did get pulled over for speeding though.

It helps that my fiance is fluent in Spanish, but most people in Panama thought that he was a foreigner and I was a locale, bc of his light skin and eyes.

I don't think crime is any higher in Panama then in any other popular tropical destination, it's just not as "touristy" yet.

We are going to see my TA/cousin next week, so hopefully we will have a good idea then.

Panama is one destination I just came across, and so far, I love what I have seen.

My fiance's one concerns is crime ... he seems to think Panama is a dangerous country, but I have read otherwise.

Anyone able to soothe those fears?

One thing I forgot to mention is that your fiances fears may be in regards to the "rebels" that occupy the Darien jungle that join Panama and Colombia. There aren't actually any roads going through the jungle , it is not drive able  and your visits to Panama won't take you anywhere close to there.

Hi RandR,

 

Jenn emailed me pics so I can share what I have with you!!  I'm actually leaving for a site visit on Monday!  I can't wait to see the property in person and speak to Julia (the WC).  She's told me there are weddings everyday so I'll take pics if I catch the ceremonies.

 

Have you set a date/month yet?

I've also been in contact with a lot of wedding coordinators, which have been very helpful so if you contact a few I'm sure that they might help you choose a location.

 

El Valle also has a nice property - Los Mandarinos, I've seen a few weddings done here when I was looking up photographers. Its really pretty!
I'm actually having mine offsite the Decameron and at the Buenaventura.

Oh cool! I have seen pictures for the Buenaventura it is beautiful. We have looked into El Valle too. I guess my only concern there is having to hire all the vendors separately as at the Decameron it looks like they may cover pretty much everything in their packages. There's Definitely a lot to consider!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
