Paradisus Romance: Seaside Ceremony

Posted on by Paradisus Resorts
 

Crystal-clear blue water views? Check. A well-appointed bridal suite and a spate of wedding venues to choose from? Yes and yes. Romance? Absolutely. At Paradisus Cancun Resort Mexico, destination weddings are our forte. And seeing as our property hosts only one ceremony per day — unlike our neighboring hotels — we pay meticulous attention to details and the wishes of our wedding parties.

It all commences with the assistance of our Romance Team. Nestled within the hotel, our experts are on hand to hash out every wedding detail with the bride and groom. From table settings to flower arrangements to hair and makeup — every facet of the wedding’s elements are addressed — and with a smile. “Our Miami office or on-site team have the commitment to personalize every service and answer any questions our clients may have. ‘No’ is never an option,” Romance Manager Lorena Arvide says. Planning a destination wedding with our Romance Team is free of stress — just ask our brides!

Speaking of brides, Paradisus Cancun offers them a calm and relaxing bridal suite. Swathed in white and pink hues, the room provides brides and their bridesmaids a calm haven before the big moment. Replete with a sitting area, wardrobe changing room and bathroom (hello, Roman tub!) — the whole wedding party can leisurely sip bubbly and unwind. Also on hand? A minimalist salon-inspired area where the wedding party can get got gorgeous with our on-site glam squad.

From intimate weddings of two to over-the-top parties of over 300 guests, Paradisus Cancun Resort can accommodate a cavalry of guests. Our ceremonies can take place under a beachside gazebo or directly on the beach with the sound of the waves kissing the shore. Our reception venues include the Grill Terrace and Pool Bar in the Pool Area, the Royal Service Beach in the Beach area, a Gazebo Garden in the green area and not to mention 21 ballrooms. Each of these venues share a beautiful backdrop. On average, Paradisus Resorts Cancun produces 150 to 200 weddings per year — and our wedding team is certified in ethnic weddings, same-sex weddings, Jewish and green weddings.

Simply said, we make saying “I do” easy, breezy and unforgettable.

#TravelToIDo with Ritani and Paradisus Resorts!

Posted on by Paradisus Resorts
 

At both Ritani and Paradisus, we have been overwhelmed with the amazing entries so far for the #TravelToIDo giveaway. We’ve partnered to give one happy couple the destination wedding of their dreams, and it has been such a pleasure to read your stories. Here are just a few that have blown us away with tales of romance, serendipity and love.

By Jeanette: “We were on vacation in Montecito, CA, a place we had a weekend getaway 2 years prior. Josh had told me he loved me by spelling out “I love you” with candles and roses right before sunrise at Butterfly Beach. My now fiancé told me he wanted to show me a place we didn’t have time to see last time, so I got ready and he was gone.

He told me to meet him across the street, which led down to Butterfly Beach. He had roses, candles & champagne waiting for me. I thought he was being romantic and was totally surprised when he proposed at sunset. It was so magical and was the best day of my life. I can’t wait to marry my best friend!”

From PowerCoupleLife: “After many military deployments, moving constantly, we traveled to Dominican Republic for a getaway. We had been together for a while and even though we had traveled together before it was for my work, not really for fun.
We decided to go horseback riding one morning and halfway through the ride he asked a guide to take our photo. Little did I know he just wanted to be close to my horse!

He told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and hoped we can enjoy many more vacations together until we are old and grey. After the trip he went back to work, another deployment, another move, and we never had time to plan or have a wedding.
Please let us win! A military family budget would never let us have something like this but we have hope!”

Says LaQuatre: “My fiancé and I met in high school on the school bus. We both had crushes on each other at the time, but never acted on it. It wasn’t until we saw each other at a lounge in my hometown almost 7 years later that we reconnected. We talked for a few minutes that night but did not exchange numbers. If it weren’t for a mutual friend who got us to the same house party so that my fiancé could get my number our romance would have never begun. We’ve been making history since.

My fiancé took me on a romantic journey to take my hand in marriage after being together for 2 years. Since we met on the school bus he rented a limo as my “school bus” and he had my mother drop me off at my grandmother’s house like she would when I was in high school to catch the bus which the 1st stop on the proposal where me 1st met over a decade ago. I then went to different stops that were momentous to our relationship. At each stop a close family member or friend was picked up with a letter from him and different color roses symbolizing the stages of our relationship. The last stop is where a new memory was created and he proposed with family and friends gathered to celebrate with us. It was so romantic.

We’ve been together for almost 8 years and engaged for almost 5 years, but have not gotten married. Due to my being in medical school 18 hours away, his military obligations, long distance, and unexpected life circumstances the timing has never worked out when planning a wedding. Therefore, we’ve recently decided to do a destination wedding instead of the traditional wedding and would love to be picked for the dream wedding at Paradisus resorts.”

Meagan says: “My best friend proposed to me on my birthday in Orlando at the top of the Orlando Eye as we were overlooking the city. We both couldn’t stop crying, laughing and smiling! I feel so blessed and honored to be his sweetheart.”

Because we’ve received so many comments from excited fans about this giveaway, we’ve decided to extend it! You now have until September 6 to share your engagement story with a photo on Instagram – and make sure you follow both Paradisus Resorts and Ritani to be eligible. Don’t forget to also join our Twitter Chat on September 2, with Destination I Do Magazine, WeddingWire and more wedding experts. See the full rules and more entries on the #TravelToIDo page.
