So anyone who has been married or seen these locations in person i'd love to hear your opinion on this.


      We used the Bamboo Room for our reception and there were only 15-17 of us. It felt a little empty, only because we didn't have a dance floor/dancing. I loved the privacy though, and happy we stuck with it.

        Hi Micaela....I am getting married at the Now Sapphire in March of 2012.   I have had a great plannig experience so far with the wedding planner at the resort, Sandra, and the other ladies on this forum.  You shuld also check out the ' Paradisus Riviera Brides ' thread.  Paradisus is what the Now Sapphire used to be called so the thread hasn't changed it's name but there is a lot of useful information on there from past and present Now Sapphire brides!  :-)


        I am planning on having only approx. 25 - 30 guests.  Our ceremony is on the beach and our reception is on the Ocean Terrace (in between the pool and the beach).  I chose the Divine Wedding package.  Happy Planning!  :-)

          Thanks ladies!  That helps a lot.


          My next challenge is figuring out how to get everything I've bought down there.  You guys didn't have any issues with customs?

              I got my hair done at noon for a 6:30 ceremony.  I know that sounds kinda crazy, but it worked perfectly.  I wanted to have time to get ready with my bridesmaids and not be rushed and I wanted to do a first look and take lots of pics before the ceremony.  It took exactly 2 hours for my hair and makeup.


              If you don't plan on any pictures before the ceremony, you probably could get your hair done at 2:00 or 2:30 or so and be on time!
