Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

Figured since the Paradisus tread isn't getting much action I would created a new one that is called Now Sapphire. I heard back from Sandra today and our wedding date was confirmed for 5/5/2012. Who else is getting married here and what dates?

Ok, hopefully we can get this thread going!


Here is a link to the old Paradisus thread for anyone who wants to have a look. There are Now Sapphire weddings to read about, as the thread remained active after the name change.




How is everyone's planning going?

Thought I'd reply to this thread so we get shifted over!


Short answer.. I'd say you're okay to send it at anytime now.


Long answer.. I'd say think about your guest list. If you know that a lot of your people will need to save up money or need notice to get time off work, I'd say send your info sooner than later. In our case, we decided to skip save the dates and just send out the invite with all the travel info way in advance, at about the time people normally probably send STD's -- we sent it out about 9-10 months ahead of the wedding date. Seemed really early, but I wanted to get it on people's mind so they could put down deposits, start watching flight prices, get time secured off work with plenty of notice, etc. Worked out well for us.. Out of the 40 people we know are coming, we have all but 2 with their hotel and flight booked, and we're still about 3 months out.

Thanks for starting this thread!!


As I posted in the other thread I am getting married here March 16, 2012.


RFinger:  I sent out my save the dates exactly one year ahead.  It included the date, resort name, my travel agents info and my website with the detailed room deposit info for my guests.

For Save the Dates, because we are less than 8 months out now, I think we will just an informal save the date with a link to our website in the next few weeks, and then send a formal invite in a couple of months. I seems silly to send out two invites in the mail so close to one another, and all information pertaining to the wedding will be on the website anyway.

Hello ladies,


I just saw the link to this new forum, thanks RFinger for getting this thread started.  My date has been confirmed, it's 5/18/12.


AmyG, thanks for your PM about the group rates.  Unfortunately, I decided to negotiate with the resort directly and I do not have a travel agent so I may be going through a different process.


I just sent out my save the dates this week. I am also in the process of setting up a wedding website that includes the travel info so that my guests will be able to start tracking flights and hopefully book their rooms some time in the near future.

    • I know this is an older post, but maybe my message will help someone else.
    • While most readers have (hopefully) heard of Geoffrey Chaucer, they are probably not familiar with his exquisite rondels. And I would rank Charles d’Orleans with Chaucer as a master of the medieval form …
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
