Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

Thanks so much for you're insight into the NOW sapphire and all we need to know to plan. Can you remember who your dj was? You said he was from the resort and really kept things lively. We'd like to request him by name if we can.

Hi Brides,

 

Does any one know the measurements of the round tables and the square tables and about approx how many people each seats?

 

 

Also has anyone opted to purchase and bring a bose sound system instead of renting the resorts hourly. We will be a small group under 25 ppl and dont need an extreme sound system for dancing or anything, just something to connect a mic to so my guests can hear well enough for speaking and for first dance and background music.  Have any past brides used one?

 

Thanks for your time ladies, happy planning!!

There is post by a bride(maybe 8-10 pages back) who spoke about how she used a Bose system and ipod and it worked out great. Her reception was on tequila terrace so they set up the speakers on the wooden railing around the terrace. Also in previous posts other brides have also used alternative music options. I've read all posts from page 1 and have learned a lot!!!!!

As for tables - here is what Anel sent me when I asked. They seat 10 (although we had 2 people randomly join another table and the 12 seemed to work fine as well:

I'll ask Anel and get back to you. Also feel free to tell her to book the same DJ as the Smith-Schroeder wedding on July 20.

Here you go, dear! Ramon said these seat 8 - 10 people. I don't know about the square tables though.

The company is Adventure Photos. Honestly I'm using them for something else, either a family photo shoot or having them photograph my welcome cocktail hour. It depends on how important photography is to you. It's one of my top priorities so I hired a photog here and I'm flying her down with me. I just have to pay her travel fees and she and her husband do 8 hours shooting. It's MUCH cheaper than hiring a photog down there. If you plan on hiring a photog in Mexico I suggest Juan Navarro. He did my friends wedding at dreams and did an amazing job. He's a little out of my budget. My photographer I'm bring is meettheburks.com Good luck!

I did A LOT of research before choosing our photographer... my blunt recommendation is DO NOT go with the resort's photographers. I have read many reviews about their work being mediocre and sub-pair. I personally rather save money somewhere else, and not on choosing the photographer who will document the most important day of our lives. That's my humble opinion.

Hi Ladies,

 

I am not going with the resort photographer mainly because they are very expensive and the package that comes with only includes 1 hour of photos and 40 images. Another bride on here suggested .amorcitocorazonstudio.com they are a husband and wife duo. They were the most reasonably priced as we are on a tight budget. We are going to use the resort photographer for our "trash the dress" 

 

As for the disco, does anyone know if there is an age limit? I have a niece and nephew coming down and after the reception we would like to go there, but they will only be 16 and 14. 

 

Thanks for info on welcome dinner. We are still debating that might be the last minute idea. But $25/pp doesn't sound bad in order to have everyone together unless people think going to a restaurant with a group for 30 isn't bad? Any tips? 

 

Thanks ladies,

Megan

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
