Now Sapphire Weddings Formerly Paradisus Riviera

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I am new to the group! We are getting married at the NOW sapphire on April 6th, 2013. I am having the Divine package and have the Tequilia Terrace reserved for the reception ( I believe pool area for cocktails?) Does anyone have pictures they would like to share of the Tequilia terrace reception? Thanks!

Does anyone know if you don't use the resort photographer, do they take off money from your wedding package? We have the Divine package and  its included, but I really want to have good pictures:):)...

Ladies, I could use some help. Did anyone do programs? If so how did you do them? Because, we have no idea when things are going to happen or who our officiant is, or how long it will take! All suggestions are welcome!

Hi all!! 

 

I am new to this website and am getting married at the NOW Sapphire on January 5, 2013 - right around the corner! I wish I had known about this site earlier. I have hired Photos in Cancun for the photography and DJ Mannia. I am still trying to figure out who to hire as a florist and a make up artist/hair stylist. I've emailed with Fernando Fuentos for hair & makeup, and Vanessa Jaimes for flowers. Any reviews on either of those people? I also just emailed Lucy with flowers by lucy. 

 

What I'm really interested is hearing from anyone that has had their hair & make up done by the stylists at the resort. I'm sure they're great, but I just haven't heard anything. Can anyone give me their honest opinion?

 

My fiance and I visited this resort in June so I have some pictures of the resort if anyone is interested, just give me your email. Thanks :)

I would love to see some pics - kimberlyevans1@msn.com

 

Also, for hair and makeup, I've heard from reading these boards that Adrian Guerra and his team are amazing --> adriang1224@gmail.com is the contact that I jotted down for him.

 

Good luck!! Your wedding is so close!! Can't wait to read your review when you get back - I'm planning an April 2014 wedding so I have lots of time still, lol.

I am using Photos in Cancun. They have great prices & Derek is very quick to respond to emails. And best of all, he has photographed at the NOW Sapphire multiple times, so he's familiar with the resort. 

 

As far as responses go, they are just slow. It is frustrating, but if you haven't heard back after a week, email again. If you still haven't heard back a few days later, email again. If you bug them enough, they'll email back. It's just how things are there. But rest assured, once you get there, they are very accommodating and will answer any and all questions you have!

 

Nels, is that the resort photographer that you are using (i.e., the one that comes in the package?)

No it's not. I found him on my own! I've heard really great things about him. His email address is mrderekcampbell@gmail.com, and his name is Derek Campbell. If you end up booking him, let me know! 

 

I am having a welcome party for all my guests after the rehearsal dinner on friday night, so I am going to try & use the photographer that's included in the package for that. I've emailed Anel about it, just waiting for a response.

Wow, I am so glad I found this forum!! I just confirmed my wedding date at Now Sapphire for November 8th 2013. I have browsed most of the thread and had most of my questions answered (thanks to you ladies!), however there is one thing I am absolutely TERRIFIED about. My hair and makeup. I have a hairdresser on my guest list, and as long as my brother keeps dating her (ha), I know she would be happy to do my hair. My makeup on the other hand...yikes! Anyone go elsewhere for hair and makeup? If you had yours done at the resort, how did you feel about it? Did it turn out fabulous..or just ok?? (sorry if this was already asked).

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
