@TKA2012:  La Concha is beautiful! We are staying there a couple of nights before the wedding. I am getting married at the St. Regis.

@sweetdee124:  St. Regis!  Gorgeous! Your photos are going to be amazing.  I fell in love with the St. Regis room pics on the website and the grounds are awesome!  My FH wanted to be closer to the airport — he didn’t want the guests to have to drive to far out.  It really isn’t that far from the airport at all.  I resisted, but lost that battle.  πŸ™‚

@TKA2012:  thanks! yes I loved it in pictures and even better when we did a site visit. I’m having my rehearsal dinner at Perla in La Concha so the only day they will have to drive to the St. Regis is that Saturday. I see your fiance’s view on not wanting guests to drive far also though and La Concha is in a good area with lots of things to do. Goodluck girl and let me know if you have any last minute questions as well. Where are you having your rehearsal?

  • Wedding: November 2012

I’m getting married @ LaConcha this November. We got engaged NYE 2012. I’m new to this board, so hello!

Right now all we’ve booked is the ceremony/reception site. I ordered my dress and got a coordinator and booking my dj. Next up booking my photographer. I feel behind slightly, so I’m trying to get rolling on with planning again. I went on a 2 week vacation to the Philippines and it interupted my flow!

After the photograher, trying to find make up artist, any recommendations? The one my coordinator recommended is a little too much. It’s more than Chicago prices. I was a little shocked!

@Chloeve:  I recommend Ruben Roman. He is very creative and I love his photog style. You can check out the recap I did of my wedding on here. Goodluck!

@aubrey08:  Hey! Congrats. La Concha is such a hip hotel..your wedding will be beautiful! I used Didi Saldana for my hair. She is a makeup artist also but I did my own makeup because I’m good at it. You can read her reviews on wedding wire but I was very impressed with her professionalism! She went above and beyond and was a sweetheart. Search “I love make up and hair too by didi” on google and her wedding wire site will pop up.

Hi ladies!  Congrats on your upcoming weddings in PR.  I’m also a PR destination bride…but for 2013 instead of 2012. πŸ˜‰

We’re still looking for a venue to have our event/that our guests can stay at, and I’m wondering if anyone can steer me in the right direction or gush about where they’ve chosen.  I’m looking at a few places in San Juan and one place in Ponce, though I know absolutely nothing about the area.  Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks! πŸ™‚

Hi Fellow Brides,

 

I too am getting married in Puerto Rico. San Juan, on May 3, 2013. I just came back from a trip to PR and got to visit a few hotels while I was there. I am really loving La Concha and Caribe Hilton so far and think I may book with one of these resorts soon. Has anyone had any experience with either of these hotels? What are people’s budgets? I have a budget set for the wedding ceremony and reception of $10K, but am wondering if this is realistic? Any good DJ recommendations? Any advice or information is appreciated.

Happy Planning. πŸ™‚
