Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

So sorry I haven't been back on the blog since my wedding on June 19th. Things got crazy once we returned after being their two weeks. Also we are having our reception back home this coming Saturday. But I'm planning on writing my review this week and if any ladies want to know more about working with Juan Carlos, having a wedding party of 43 guest  and such just shoot me the questions!

 

I can tell you it was the best and more then I could have even imagined. It was perfect. There were so hiccups with our guests in terms of people of having groups over 6 for dinner, but I guess I was okay with waiting and having a drink. YOu just have to be good about going early and then when you are hungry you will probably be seated then. Hope that makes sense.

 

So future brides it will be great and relax you get to talk about everything once you are there and they are pros at this kind of stuff.!!

Just reserved July 12, 2015 at Now Sapphire and am soooooooo excited!!! Anel was lovely to talk to and we felt so comfortable with her (and as two type-As that was super important.)

 

I will have to read through all 212 pages but would be super grateful if past Now Sapphire brides shared tips, thoughts, feedback on things I shoudl (and should'nt) be doing.

 

yay!!

Hi Brides! I have been getting quotes for floral arrangements the past few weeks. What floral arrangements did you have Now Sapphire do? Or did you have a company outside the resort to do all the flowers for your wedding? Or did you do a mix of flowers from Now Sapphire included in your package with an outside florist?  How did it turn out?

 

Thanks!

@CurlyKristen- The florist info is in my write- up but I used Riviera maya florist for all of my centerpieces and then I just used the flowers from the resort that were included in the divine package ( 1 centerpiece , my bouquet and the corasages/boutineres) the flowers from resort were beautiful but to buy more centerpieces from there was SO MUCH more expensive than going outside the resort. I've attached a pic of the centerpieces that the outside florist did for me ( she provided the centerpiece, lantern and wooden board ) it was exactly what I told her I wanted and the price was $65 for everything included ( lantern, wooden board and centerpiece)

Hello Brides,

 

I'm still writing my review.. hard as everything was almost perfect. But here is my slideshow from my photographer Anel and Jacob from Amorcito Corazon. They were amazing and would highly recommend them. I will finish up my review by the end of this week and post a link! Happy planning Ladies.

@@Curly Kristen - I used the resort florist.. They did one centerpiece which was included in my package, and 6 bouquets which I used after the ceremony for the my centerpieces on the guest dinner tables. They were exactly what I wanted and I loved them. I also did corsages and boutinerres. In my slideshow I posted they have some pictures of them. The bouquest cost $65 a piece, I told them my budget and they didn't try to push me to go over at all. I didn't want to deal with the vendors offsite. I was very pleased with the resort florist.

 

Let me know if you have other questions or want more photos.

Thanks for sharing @@meganwitt your pictures turned our great! I noticed that you had a shoe check cubby by the ceremony site. Did you get that through the hotel?? And the centerpieces looked good I couldn't even tell they were bouquets. Did you use the bouquets on all the tables? I might have to think about doing the same cause all the quotes i'm getting are pretty pricy for what i would be getting.


So what is everyones wedding dates and how are you doing with your planning?

I'm April 18th, 2015! When is yours? Right now i'm just trying not go insane with booking the rooms. It's 8 months out and they only have the tropical views left :(

HI everyone!!! I am getting married at NS on 2/28/15. I found this site yesterday and WOW!!!! I am so glad that I did, so much great information.

 

I am sure it has been discussed before but I was curious if anyone had a beach terrace reception and did NOT get the chinese lights? I was quoted $850 for them and  can not see spending that amount of money on lights!!! The picture that Juan sent me of what comes with the Divine package looks like a spot light :unsure:Please let me know how this worked for you!!!!

My daughter is getting married at Sapphire in October. I refuse to pay that much for lanterns! We will party in the dark before I pay that!
