honestly, we just went with the hotel's recomendation list (they have a list you can download) for everything except the hair stylist, which I regret. my wife BARELY made it back to the wedding in tiem because of traffic, if I did it again, I'd have her go to the place across from El Convento. They recomended a judge, who, in turn, recomended a person to drive us around to get the necessary paperwork. We showed up four days ahead of time. my wife's sister brought the cake, but I'm sure there are plenty of bakeries in San Juan. like i said, we did it during the week to save a lot of money. everyone stayed nearby and, as such, they didn't need rental cars. some stayed at el convento, others used vrbo.com (and made a vacation of the trip). two stayed in condado and took the bus into old san juan and said it worked well. I found that web rates for el convento were lower than the discount rates. Initially the hotel was difficult to contact, but then they hired a new "coordinator' and after that, I can't say enough good things about the place. It's also unique. we got married in the courtyard but if you're catholic, the church is probably a great place to get married.

also, we opted for extre sangria for the reception rather than an open bar. that was the best decision we made. there wasn't one single drop of sangria left and not one person had touched a beer. the guy made it the right way, letting the fruit soak overnight. our photographer took us up to el Morro for photos...it's a short walk away...though PR is HOT wearing a suit! My wife is from PR but her dress was a nice, heavy gown from up north.
