    I think all of the boys are doing a light tan linen.  Haven't decided yet if I want them all in jackets, or just my fiance, and the boys in vests.  My girls are wearing light peach, and the boys will have ties that are striped with all different colors (including that peach).

No way am I calling my guests to find out- what did you guys do?


    They told me this when I was out there, so I am going to send it out with the invitation on the RSVP card.  They were very strict about this...and you need to provide them with a seating chart 3 weeks before the wedding with who ordered what, and where they are sitting!  Tough!

      Haha! :) I totally understand. We asked on the RSVP card. Too bad we don't have most of them back yet!!! :)

            Hi ladies! I have loved reading all of your reviews and info about Paradisus. We are currently considering the resort for our Feb 2014 wedding and have found this super helpful. I noticed a comment about the gazebo no longer being used for weddings...does anyone know more about this? I haven't heard back from Lauren I'm assuming because its the weekend...but kind of panicked because we love the gazebo as our reception location!! I also noticed that a lot of you used travel agents...would you say that was worth it for your guests? Thanks for any help!!!

              HI,

               

              Welcome!! I actually have not heard of them not allowing brides to use the gazebo for the reception-what I would think is that going forward they will be charging the brides to use that for a reception location just like you get charged to use the Gabi club for reception. In regards to the travel agent- you 100% should utilize one! Otherwise your guests will be emailing you with questions every day!!! Def get a travel agent whether you go with this resort or not. Two of us on here are using the same travel agent- I have to say she has been great! I dont have to deal with anything and she doesnt charge for her services since she is being paid out from the resort- So it doesnt hurt you at all!!! I can email you her info if you are interested..

                Hi!! Thanks for the insight! I was kind of assuming the same for the gazebo...and it takes foreverrrr to get email replies, guess I will see when I hear back. I would LOVE the travel agents info! My email is jessicaegogan@gmail.com. It seems like that is definitely the way to go :)
