Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!  Just got back from an amazing week at the Now Sapphire.  The wedding was like in a fairy tale.  Everything went pretty smoothly.  We had 50 people total including 6 children between 2 and 13. The gazebo in the Divine package DOES include the white linens.  If you want another color, it's an extra cost. We used DJ Doremixx and sent the deposit via Western Union.  Everything went through and he did a great job.  We got flowers through Mayan Floral.  Marvin is great w/ communicating.  We got flowers for the gazebo, centerpieces, bridesmaids bouquets and a "kissing ball" for the flower girl.  Arrangements were gorgeous.  He met our friend in the lobby and we kept the flowers in Ramon's office until it was time to set them out for the wedding.  Marvin even came out and arranged the flowers at 4pm and we were not charged the vendor's fee.  We used the resort photographer and videographer.  We're happy with our photos but haven't seen our video yet.  They will be sending it out along with our photo album book.  I spent hours sifting through all the posts on this website and was so grateful for all the feedback.  If anyone has specific questions feel free to ask!  I would love to help if I can :)

Hi Danda, Congratulations and thanks so much for sharing information. Can you share florists contact information and if he sent you a cost sheet. The resort is pretty pricey for flowers. Also what food did you have for dinner? Thanks!! Emily.

My FIL went nuts with the invitations to his friends (without asking us for our permission!, and my fiance and I are the ones paying for our wedding!). Argh! Could any of you share with me the budget sheet for the Divine package? I promise not to tell Ramon or Anel I got it from you! Please please? 

 

Thanks!

Cecilia

 

Send me a PM and I will send you mine.

Can anyone let me know if they liked their video included in the Divine package?

 

Also those that have had the divine package which did you choose for the ceremony: saxophonist, violinist or guitar player?  Did you like it?

 

We are trying to decide between the Eternity & Divine package.

I am still waiting on my video we thought it was good to have especially since a lot of family and friends couldnt make the wedding. We chose the guitar player for our cocktail hour. I did hear it and thought it was good. I did also hear the violinist which was beautiful but too wasnt our style.

Congratulations Danda!  Thanks for the wonderful information!

I am curious if you used the live musicians included in the divine package?  I have heard that at the Now Jade they allow you to swap the musician for two hours of DJ.  Were you able to take advantage of this?

 

I am also wondering if anyone knows if candles are allowed on the tables for the reception?  Are we able to light them?

 

Thanks ladies! cheesy.gif

I was told by Anel that candles are typically provided by the bride & groom.  She reccomends the electric ones since it can get windy.
