Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

According to LTLFAITHY the tax is 11%. Does anyone know what the food and beverage service charge is? Also, I read $150 per event for AV equipment too, however Anel told me that it is actually a per hour rate. As for the question about the florist Heather used, I did some digging today and found their website. It is www.floreriaslucy.com. I filled in the contact us form and was emailed by Liz almost immediately. Her direct email is lucy_cancun@hotmail.com. I have already sent her pictures of my flowers I am envisioning. I haven't got a quote yet, but it seems promising. Caution: The website is all in Spanish and since I am fluent, I have been emailing her in Spanish too. Not sure about her English, but I am guessing it isn't a problem.

Does anybody happen to know if there is a buffet option if you have a certain number of guests. Before deciding on Now Sapphire, we were looking at a few Dreams resorts (which are also part of amRESORTS). I know that if you have over, I believe 35 guests, you could choose to do a buffet for less $$/pp. My fiance has a huge family, his mom is one of 9, and we weren't expecting most of them to come. Well surprise, surprise last night he got a call from one of his uncles and the family is pumped to go to Mexico. OMG, we are going to be SO over budget it's not even funny!

I'm sure Sapphire is the same as Jade and i'm pretty sure over 50 people and you can do a buffet. Congratulations for so many people coming to share your special day with you! I'm not sure how much it would be per person above the 25. I know the Eternity is $48 and the Divine is $52. If you find out how much the buffet is let me know! :)

I will! I emailed Anel this morning inquiring about the required number and price/person to do a buffet ~ but you know how that goes, it could be a few weeks before I hear anything (LOL). But I'll be sure to post the info as soon as I get it.

Great thank you! I'll be patiently waiting! :) 

If I hear anything, I'll let you know as well!

All this info is AMAZING! Does anyone know how you go about the reception decor? Do you just email pictures and then they quote you a price for it? Also, if you get the Tequilla Terrace (which I did) where is the dance floor?

What great information! Does anyone know how you go about getting the reception decor together? Do you just send them photos of what you want and they quote you a price for it? Also, ive booked the Tequilla Terrace... where do they set up the dj/ipod/dance floor?

We found that Anel communicates on Facebook quite frequently so that may be an idea.

Our Wedding on the Tequila Terrace at NOW Sapphire, Mexico on 6.2.2012

 

We spent 10 days at NOW Sapphire to celebrate our wedding, which took place on June 2, 2012. I received so much helpful information from this discussion board that I wanted to share my experiences too. I waited to post this until everything was over because I think hindsight is helpful. So, below is a lengthy (sorry!) account of my experience as a NOW Sapphire bride:

 

First, some context about me as a bride: I had a budget. My husband and I paid for our own wedding. I am a relaxed traveler and try very hard not to sweat the small stuff. When we decided to have a destination wedding I embraced the following philosophy: “Live in the moment. Donâ€t sweat the small stuff. Donâ€t stress about the big picture.†I am so glad I did because it allowed me to make plans for my day, including particular details that were important to my husband and I, without worrying about every little thing the day of.

 

Travel:

We used our local travel agent, Mary Ann Downey, at Rainbow Travel in Harrison City, PA. We distributed her information to all of our guests in our homemade save the date cards (this is one place we saved a TON of $$-- see photos below) and everyone loved her. She was a joy to work with! She booked us through Apple Vacations (weâ€ve used them on several occasions and have never been disappointed) and our guests through Apple and Go Go Worldwide, depending on who was running a promotion and had the lower price. I know that using a travel agent made it possible for more of our guests to attend because 1) she was aware of lower prices and 2) they didnâ€t have to pay for everything up front. When you use a travel agent you make a deposit and have a due date for the rest of the money owed. Many of our guests made payments throughout the year—essentially making our wedding a part of their monthly billing cycle. This would not have been possible without Mary Ann!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
