Being very honest, I dont think it will look right if you put tables on each side of the dining room either. I feel as though its too far from sweetheart table and takes away from the intimacy. Also thinking about how photos will if you set up seating that way.


I hear you.  The issue is that we are having 120 guests, and I don't know how else to figure this out.  I figure most people will be dancing the whole time and only sitting to eat.  Just can't figure out a way around this!  Driving me nuts :)

    I was not able to do a cake tasting.  I did taste all of the options for a plated dinner, though.

      Hi KK,

       

      thanks for the feed back, did they give you an option on the food that they allowed you to taste? why weren't you able to do a cake tasting?

       

      thanks

        Ladies

         

        I'm extremely worried, I just learned that Paradisus does not leet guest staying on La Esmeralda travel to La Perla and vice versa, has anyone encountered this. I was under the impression that people would be able to travel between both

         

        thanks

          Hiya Aury! :)

           

          When we were there, we were able to travel between both sides.  We were at La Perla (Royal Service).  Not sure if Royal Service made any difference.

            No prob!  Yes, they allowed us to try two choices for each course which we chose in advance. Honestly, when I was there I was so early in the planning process (it was last November) that it didn't even occur to me, and I was very unprepared.  They described which cakes I could choose from, and I showed them pictures I had that I liked (that they said they could recreate), but I never thought to ask about tasting.  In the dinner we are serving, they include a dessert, so rather than serving the cake, we are just going to have it boxed and send it back with people to their rooms for a late night snack.

            They told me if you were an adult, you could utilize both sides.  Just the kids can't go on the Esmeralda side :)

              Hi ladies I have a question regarding the DJ. I was contacted by JSAV and there pricing for 3 hrs starts at $1350 and do not include Labor, Transportation, 15% Service and 11% Tax Fees & his pricing states "Packages for Playa del Carmen have additional costs"

              However The customized wedding extras form which I received from the Romance Department when I 1st booked my wedding states : Standard Package starts at $1000 and includes 3 hours of DJ, DJ equipment, 2 speakers, wireless microphone & 8 LED lights. I don't understand the discrepancy in pricing? Can there be another DJ company for Paradisus? This is a big difference in pricing and I don't understand why the company that the Romance Dept recommends states that they charge extra for Play Del Carmen weddings? Also does anyone have the email address or contact info for the Spa at the resort, I wanted to get pricing and see if they would offer a discount if I bought several spa treatments (I wanted to give spa treatments as a gift to our parents and siblings). And Im not sure when I would need to book my hair and makeup appointments for the wedding day and trail run. Thanks, any info you guys have will greatly help!
