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!

Thanks for your awesome outline of your special day :) We may also have up to 50 people and would love to have a great private reception area to dance the night away (with free liquor all night lol).

 

Do you mind me asking what kind of budgeting you did for this resort? Ie what costs added up to for you in terms of the number of guests at dinner, etc? I can PM you if you prefer :)

I am thinking of having my wedding at the Now Sapphire but am worried about the extra costs for guests. Did everyone pay the 99 dollars per guest over the 25 for the devine wedding package? Or is that what the cost is?

HI Ladies,

 

I have seen a few people post about using the DJ at the resort for their reception.  I don't see DJ services in any of the packages though.  Is the DJ an add on?  If so, any recommendations on using the one in house or a vendor??

 

Thanks in advance!!

Toni

Yes there is a fee for the bamboo chairs honestly i would say pass on them i saw them they are nice but is it worth the money for the 3 hours your guests will be sitting in them? if you have a wedding like mine your guests will all be on the dance floor.

Check into the price i believe they are$ 5-$15 extra each. they are nice though
