Paradisus Cancun - New to the forum

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies! I am excited to be on here -- but no clue where to start. Hoping starting a new thread is the way to go??

 

I am deciding on whether to have my wedding at the Paradisus Playa Del Carmen or Paradisus Cancun (already put a deposit down on the Paradisus!). The prices for guests and the beach seems to be better at Cancun but overall resort seems to be better in Playa?

 

Has anyone had experiences at either one - and can you please tell me about them?? Pros/Cons -

 

I would love any input!!

 


Thank you!

We are getting married at Paradisus Cancun at the beginning of May (gazebo ceremony and pool side reception).  It has been hard to plan without seeing things and they have very few pictures to provide.  We just had to learn to relax and hope it all comes together.  The decor team has been super nice and helpful but some of their prices are ridiculous.  $550 for 40 Chinese lanterns that I could probably pick up in downtown LA for about $50 max.  However, they let you bring in your own decor for a "set-up fee" of $1.50 a piece.  We are bringing a few items with us in order to keep the cost down and not feel too ripped off.

 

The $1,000 outside vendor fee is insane as well - especially since they only give you two photographers to choose from.  We originally wanted Dani from SweetCaribbean but she was booked and the alternative, David Pena, well let's just say that his email exchange was less than professional.  So we ended up booking Octavio Montes who so far has been amazing!  You can check out some of his work here: http://www.octaviomontes.com/

 

I will post again after the wedding to let you in on any other tips that we might have!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!! It's coming up soon!

 

We are getting married July 7, 2014 and have booked the gazebo and La Perla restaurant.

 

I totally agree with you and think that the décor prices are absolutely ridiculous! I could not believe the prices that they wanted to charge. We don't want to be ripped off either so we are bringing our own décor and silk flowers.

 

In regards to the vendors, I guess we were lucky and booked with Sweet Caribbean Photography. If you plan on a videographer an/or DJ, make sure you negotiate prices. The DJ at JSAV tried to overcharge us (even beyond his price listing he first gave to us)!! I could not believe it! We negotiated a bit and managed to get the price to be more affordable. Same went with the videographer (but he was not as outrageous). I did not know prices were negotiable as we don't do that here much in Canada.

 

Anyway yes, please do let us know how it goes! Any tips would be appreciated.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
