        Hi Ladies,

        I'm so glad I found this site! All your information is so helpful! My fiance and I are looking at getting married at the HR in July of next year and I was worried about planning a destination wedding but, this site and all of you are making it easier :)

          I was just at the resort a couple of weeks ago for my site visit and No it doesn't effect the beach weddings. the majority of the beach is open and we didn't even realize a portion of it was closed. They closed it to do some work so it is safer to swim in the water in that area. The Isla beach is open which is where they will be having the beach ceremony until the ipanema side is open. Basically, if your having a beach ceremony it will be on the Isla beach!

              Below is the information I received from our HRPC account manager regarding the beach closure. Weddings are still being done on the beach at the opposite end. I hope this helps! TA Patty

               

               

              Effective September 7th, and for the next 90 days, a portion of our beach will be closed for the creation of a wave breaker. The approximate completion date is December 12, 2012.  This wave breaker will provide added safety for guests who choose to take advantage of our expansive beachscape while vacationing at the resort.

               

              This project is being carried out by professional contractors who specialize in environmental benefits and solutions that provide added safety to those who want to go into the ocean.

               

              During this time, a perimeter will be set into place to clearly mark the project area and to ensure guest safety. The rest of the beach, in addition to the resort poolscape, will still be accessible to all.

               

              We thank you for your understanding and will continue to update you regarding this project.

                Would you recommend all the locations you used? I am having an Ipanema beach ceremony. Do you have any pictures?

                  Hello all-

                   

                  I am in the process of picking the locations for my events. My ceremony is at 5:00 at Ipanema Beach aould like an outdoor reception. For anyone that has ever been to the HR can you receommend which terrace is better- Element or Toro? Any recommendations for cocktail hour? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

                   

                  Thanks

                  Chelsea

                    Not to worry, I inquired about this as well as I am getting married there Dec.5th this year. Apparently is far away from Isle Beach  as the resort is just massive. Not to worry. :)

Up until that time you need to work through the Miami office and the onsite WC's have been instructed to not even respond if a bride contacts them before the 30 day mark. Apparently they are very strict with this policy and will not budge. All communication must be with the Miami office until you are assigned your WC 30 days prior to your wedding date. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. TA Patty

                      Hi Patty! Do you know where we could rent DJ equipment that is cheaper than the resorts vendor JSV! They are overcharging for everything! Our guest who is a close friend is a DJ and he will be DJ'ing for us. Do you have any suggestions?
