    Hi everyone,

    I need advice for picking a venue for a November 2014 wedding. I haven't seen too much information on this site about a recent wedding at Secrets Capri and it seems that having a wedding at Paradisus La Perla can run very smooth (and expensive) or NOT. Are there any 2013 brides that can give me some advice for a 50 person wedding regarding these two resorts?

    Thank you!!

      Hello Sunflower0327,

       

      Both resorts are a very good option for your wedding, Here is a video of a real wedding at Paradisus, take a look at it

      I'm not married yet, but I actually forfeited my deposit at Paradisus because we booked it sight-unseen and upon visiting the resort, we were SO disappointed. It is very expensive, there are few options, and while the resort itself is gorgeous, the area is not, the beach is terrible (covered in seaweed and not private), and the staff overall was very unaccomodating (we were booked for La Perla and upon check in were moved to the kid side just for starters). I'm not sure how helpful this is since I don't know anything about Secrets, but thought I'd throw it in there.

        Hi everyone,

        Thank you!!

        I am getting married at Secrets Capri, May of next year :)  It was an extremely hard decision to make, seeing as, my fiance and I have never been to the resort.  We have mainly stayed at Riu's and found it time, to stay at an all adults (huge plus for us), and a place that is smaller and more intimate.

         

        I picked Capri, based upon MUCH research that I did online, and emailing other brides who I have found from this website as well as searching "secrets capri wedding" on google.   A lot of photo results, which looked great, and came with reviews from brides as well.   I also did MANY searches on tripadvisor to see reviews/pictures of the resort, and 99% of what I read and saw, was positive.

         

        I have also researched photographers websites to get a glimpse of what the weddings/receptions look like as well.  delsolphotography, has done a few weddings over there, and was pretty much the closing decision for us.

         

        We will be having a smaller wedding celebration, about 20 people.  Carolina is a busy woman, but has sent me all the info I need, and we have secured our date.   We won't get much for stuff, until the date is closer.   All packages, I must say though at EVERY resort is pretty much copy/paste and the same thing.  Not much variety, but whatever, we're getting a mariachi trio, so we're stoked.

         

        I hope my input has somewhat helped you.  If you want something smaller, private and great service I'd take Capri.  I haven't heard too much about the other one, so research the crap out of it ;)  choosing a place to celebrate forever is definitely not an easy choice to make.

         

        Good luck.

          Thank you for the responses! I actually picked Secrets Capri and will be getting married in November (50 guests). I did a lot of research and wanted a smaller hotel. There isn't a lot of current Secrets Capri information on this site so if any brides need input or want to know what went great and what didn't (crossing my fingers), let me know!
