Iberostar Paraiso Wedding Roll Call

Recommended Posts

I'm deciding between the Iberostar Paraiso Maya and the Dreams Tulum Resort....could you tell me about the experience you've had so far? Has anyone looked into external DJs or photographers or used the ones in house??

Hello Iberostar Brides and Brides to be!

TA Wendy here, from Wright Travel here on the BDW Forum. I am just back from participating in a "Love Mexico" 3 day event at The Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso at the beginning of this month. It was a great event and this resort is absolutely lovely... as a thank you for participating I was given several certificates I am able to pass along to couples who select me to assist as their TA for wedding travel. I have a certificate valid for $100 valid towards a Star Wedding Package, one for $200 valid towards a Silver Star Wedding Package, and $300 valid towards a Gold Star wedding package. Additionally, my tour operator of preference, Travel Impressions, offered to match these certificates for the group block of rooms we would book for couples and their guests. This offer applies to new weddings / groups only, and is valid for travel through Dec 1, 2013.

If anyone is considering the Iberostar properties and I can be of assistance I would love to pass these certificates along!

You can PM me here on the forum or contact me directly at my email wendy@wrighttravelagency.com.

Happy planning!

TA Wendy

How exciting, I'm very anxious to hear all about it! Our wedding is 7 months away but Jessica over at The Grand has been beyond amazing! Please let us know what restaurant you had your wedding at. We will have to have our rehearsal dinner at Maya, as we have some of the wedding party staying over there, and we'd like to get some recommendations on the restaurants.

The Gourmet or French restaurant is the fanciest but we liked the food at the Mexican Restaurant, El Tapitio, the best.  The buffet had delicious meats to make tacos and I ordered the grilled lobster as an entree.  The Japanese restaurant can seat 20 people at the hibachi grill (10 on each side) and is fun.  Instead of doing a rehearsal dinner, we had a meet and greet happy hour from 5pm to 7pm at the Snake Bar in the Maya's lobby.  We had the photographer come and take pictures there, too.  It wasn't an extra charge.  We had no food served.  It was just a place for everyone to meet and have a cocktail before heading off to dinner.

Hi Iberostar Paraiso brides!!  I didn't get married here but celebrated my 1 yr anniversary here.  What an amazing resort!!  You will all have an amazing time and an absolutely beautiful wedding.  We saw a few weddings being set up as we walked along the beach...gorgeous!!  The entire complex is amazing and your guests will have so much fun and be entertained the whole time with so many things to do.  I've heard great things about the WCs there...especially Jessica at the Grand. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions about the resort.  I can't wait to hear how everyone's wedding goes!

Kelly... The idea of having a happy hour instead of a rehearsal dinner is fantastic!!! I'm definitely going to request this as well because we had already thought of just having an intimate dinner with our immediate family.

 

We've submitted our package deals, so we'll see how it all goes from here. Any recommendations about hair stylist at the resort?

 

Our wedding is on the 6th of July, less than 6 months away!!! I can't wait to let everyone know how it goes! :)

I'll be writing a more detailed post later on, but any upcoming brides, feel free to ask me specific questions!!!

Congrats on your wedding going awesome. I was wondering if you could post some pictures or send them to me in a private message. Where was your wedding location? What resort did you stay at (ie, grand, lindo or maya?). How was the overall food for your wedding and in general at the resort? Thanks

I can't remember who did my hair.  You could ask Jessica to look it up.  I did a practice hairdo on Tuesday, July 31 and then on the wedding day, Thursday, August 2nd.  The same woman did it both days and also did my make-up.  I got false eyelashes and had her put them on....no need for waterproof mascara and you can get a pair that looks pretty natural at any beauty supply store.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
