    I've don tons of research and found Paradisus to have it all-- all inclusive, wedding coordinator is very responsive and its a 4 star resort. We have 80-100 guests and have not picked a date yet, but thinking April 2010. Which package did you go with, and did you do any custom additions? Did you choose a menu from the package? What is your schedule? Did you go with the resort photographer? Are you doing open bar at reception? Are you taking the party to the disco/bar they have after? I just have too many questions, would love to know your WHOLE set up! THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Great to hear from someone else! I am leaving tomorrow, so I'm sorry if this is shorter than you wanted...but, I will promise to get you more info when I get back.

      1st--Yes, Paola the wedding coordinator is fabulous! Not only is she responsive (which I didn't have when I was planning in Mexico), she also suggests things that you might have forgotten or overlooked.

      2nd--I went with the Fantasy package, which inclueded the 1 hour cocktail party, ceremony for up to 20 guests (I have 41 guests), so you just pay additional for each guest. I did do a reservation at one of the resort restaraunts, for the night prior for wedding party and family. (no charge for this, set menu and Paola made the reservation). I wanted to save $$ yet, have something a little more for the family.

      3rd--I went with Costa Rica Weddings for the photography, I read review after review for this...trusting they are good. They did get back to me right away, and have been very helpful. They have decent packages as well. The website is: Lifetime Digital Imaging - Wedding Albums

      4th--I am not doing an open bar at the cocktail party/hor dourve party...I felt this was a waste of money...I am doing just what they offer with the package and then after the 1 hour cocktail party we are all going to the club at the resort called the Azul, it was recommended by Paola.

      I hope some of this helps...I will make sure to post pictures and things when I'm back. :) Below is our wedding website as well. :) ~Colby
