I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium resorts in Puerto Aventuras next year, and I'm wondering if there are any more GP brides on here whom I could collaborate with! Thanks ladies!

Jcarson- how has Rocio been to deal with? It looks like you are a lot closer to your date (I'm assuming you meant 2009), so you must have a lot more of the details set up!

LOL, ooops, I did mean 2009. Rocio has been great to deal with so far and responsive to requests.

Wow! I'd love to see any pictures that you have from your site visit to GP! Also, which area did you feel was most central? I'm wanting my guests to have a good location between the beach, pools and food. Did you get to meet with Rocio while you were there, or talk to anyone about wedding related things? I'd love to hear ANYTHING you noticed during your visit! If you'd rather email me, you can reach me at coppergoddess13 at gmail dot com. Thanks so much!

Hi ladies, nice to hear from more GP brides! I am waiting for Rocio to fax me the signed wedding contract, so then I will be set for the resort reservations. We did a block of rooms through Olga and I wrote up a contract for that. We got a really great rate of $85 pp/pn, but we have to pay the hotel everything directly, meaning guests cannot call in and pay with their own cc to get this rate. It is a group rate block, so it is a little inconvenient making people send us a check for their rooms, but we just did it mostly for immediate family and bridal party to ensure we got them an affordable rate. Most of the advertised rates for this hotel are more around $150 pp/pn. We are having our guests stay at the Colonial, I just thought it was best as it is most central to the resort. Our ceremony is on Friday, June 5, 2009 at 5:00pm on the Kantenah beach. Private Reception at La Laguna from 7pm-11pm. We have to pay $45-55 per person to have the private reception, but preferred it to the non-private dinners at the a la cartes. Also, we have to choose one menu item for everyone to have, but there is one that has salmon and steak, so we figure there should be something for everyone. Also, if you are thinking about getting married there, try to make sure you get the 2008 rates for the ceremonies, as the 2009 rates are much more expensive. I think if you talk to Rocio about it and reserve your date now, you can get it. I think 2009 is like $500-1000 more, depending on the package you choose. Also, we are brining our own officiant, one of our good friends does it, so she is taking $250 off our package since we won't need the minister included. So, it has been a really fun experience planning it at the GP, and we have been able to make things happen within our budget. Since we are paying for our wedding on our own, we really don't want to bust the budget. Let me know if you have any q's, pm me or feel free to email me at hannaono@gmail.com

hanna- wow, it sounds like you are on top of things! I was wondering- how did you approach Rocio about decrease of your package due to bringing your own officiant? When I mentioned taking out the cost of flowers b/c I wanted to bring my own fake flowers, she actually seemed very hostile about it, which I was not expecting- it was just a simple question! Any suggestions on how to approach such things would be appreciated!
