so impressed with this site.
I too am having difficulty getting pics- thank-you for the photographer's email!
One thing that was helpful were tripadvisor pics posted by brides at the resort (search for wedding and also marriage/french).
I am told that there is a beach option as well as a gazebo option - which holds (according to the hotel staff) 18 seated guests. The gazebo was what caught my eye about this resort (along with the great reviews) but I dont think it'll work because of the size of the group.
I had inquired about having the wedding on the grounds of the spa (to have a more intimate setting) but this is not possible- the last option involves renting a private villa on the ground sof the resort which they rent out for a nice 1000$ or so a night. I've been told that the Paradisus does have a north american/ canadian contact whom your travel agent can contact for more info- below is her contact info:
DwBride2Be you mentioned that you had been to the Paradisus V on previous trips- what room type did you stay in ? Was it standard/ocean view.
Also, you are going down in December - do you have any concerns about the climate? I've been told and read that the winter months can be cool - the way I see it, its about what you consider as being cool.
