Happy new year ladies!  

 

I'm just a few weeks away and it's crunch time!  

 

For those doing a night time reception on the terraces, are you going with the extra lights or no lights?  I asked Ramon several times and he has reassured me that the standard lighting is sufficient; however, I'm concerned it might still be too dark.

In November the sun sets very early.  During our dinner it was dark and the lighting supplied by the resort was perfect!  You have nothing to worry about.  Trust in Ramon, he knows what he is doing and is wonderful!!

@@jh0510038, I'll be there right after you!  I'm still waiting on some confirmations from Ramon as well and am starting to get a bit nervous.  We haven't sent our wedding form in because we haven't finalized everything... Ah!

It's ok to send it in before things are finalized.  The form is to give the planners a good idea of what you want and to get the ball rolling before you arrive.  I left a LOT on my form blank when I sent it in.  At the meeting we had with Ramon 2 days before the wedding we went over the entire form and he helped us fill in the blanks.  He provided great suggestions for things I was not certain of.

 

Things will be wonderful!  Try not to stress ;)

This was included for us in the Divine package.  You list the ingredients for your signature cocktail in the planning form that is sent in 30-40 days prior to your wedding.  We for some reason had 2 signature cocktails - one during cocktail hour and then a second different drink (again your choice) was served with dinner- after appetizers before the main course.  I thought it was a nice touch!

Yes the signature drink is included in the Divine package and as Dina Q to be said the planning form give you an option for the cocktail hour and one during the reception.

Hey all!  I am getting to the point where I need to decide if I am going to ship stuff to the resort in advance or carry it all down with us.  I like the idea of it being there ahead of time, but also I'm nervous about things going missing, or not arriving in time.  Did anyone ship down there?  what was your experience?

Has anyone used or using Floreria Riviera for their flowers? Had contact with?

I reached out to them in November, made arrangements, and paid for my flowers (a lot of money). I now cannot get in contact with Alina. I have reached out twice now and no luck. The facebook page is no longer available as well as twitter. My wedding is ten days away. FREAKING OUT!

Worst case scenario you can still likely get flowers from the resort (at least the ones included in your package!).

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
