Thank you for the reply! We ended up getting a pretty good quote from Daymar regarding having our wedding there and we are 99% sure we are going to get married there - just trying to narrow down a date, which we are doing this weekend. I swear this is the most stressful part – trying to ensure your nearest and dearest are going to be able to come and making sure the price is good for your nearest and dearest. FI wants to get married this November/December which gives me 9 months only. FUN.

    That's so exciting! Our wedding date is November 11th of this year :)

    I LOVE the venue. I seriously cannot wait to have my reception there, I'm so excited for you too! What food did you end up going with if you don't mind me asking? Sorry I might have questions for you!

      Just a few days after mine (April 25th)!  We should all talk about potentially sharing decor elements!

        We are still deciding on the venue.

         

        But it looks like we will be doing:

         

        Canapes for Cocktail Hours

         

        Dinner

         

        Appetizer/Starter:

        Shrimp Bisque

         

        Main Options:

        Meat-Steak with Black Truffles and Foie Gras Sauce

        Vegetarian- Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli

        Fish- Undecided

         

        Dessert:

         

        We are actually just to have our wedding cake as dessert.

         

        Have you guys narrowed down food options?

        :)

        Ohh that is a possibility! 

         

        We are waiting for a quote on the coordinator. We are weighing the possible cost of having items bought and rented there versus us bringing down wedding decor.

         

        Have you started working on decorations already? :)

        lol not at all. I guess we still have 8 months to go, just taking the wedding coordinators lead on this and just booking things as they come up - going to narrow down a DJ and entertainment these next few weeks and hopefully reserve some decor. I'm bringing down some of my own just because the savings outweigh the hassle here.. Found 2.53 cent table runners - good enough if I am using them once! And my cousin works at pier 1 and can get a discount on these lanterns I like, so why not. I am going to rent some lighting from MrsHK on here and maybe a few other things as it will start to get heavy if I bring too much down!

         

        I've heard really great things about the shrimp bisque on here.. I'm thinking we may get that for our starter. Did you get a 3 course meal or 4 course? I didn't know if you could have a choice between 3 different options for meat...

          Hi!!! I'm new here and been readign all the post regarding BV. I'm on the fence on the location. Does anyone know anything about their preferred vendor paradisus weddings. I haven't seen any reviews here. Wondering if I should find another coordinator. Does anyone know anything???

          I didn't go with Paradisus, I went with Joyce from Dream Weddings, you will find lots of excellent reviews on her on here, I'm happy with my choice. Kristee from Fresa weddings has excellent reviews as well, I would check her out.

           

          Daymar is also very wonderful, she is the wedding coordinator there and she will work with whoever you choose. I know her and Joyce have worked previously, which is awesome since they already have a working relationship. I believe a few other brides on here are using Joyce as well. :)
