  1. Ladies- I just wanted to wish all the GP brides wonderful weddings. Due to recent financial issues that have arisen in my family, we are having to scrap the destination wedding in favor of something closer to home (a decision made just tonight). The resort looks amazing, and I hope you all have the weddings of your dreams! Enjoy!

  3. I'm a little worried about the whole process of getting legally hitched down there as well- I'm almost ready to throw in the towel and just not tell anyone that we are getting hitched before we leave and do a symbolic ceremony down there. The legal thing is starting to seem like quite a headache!
  4. When are you trying to book your wedding for? I booked for May in June or July of this year, so I was within a year- that might be the issue, if you are trying to get more than a year out?
  5. Jo- I'm glad the thread helped you! When I first posted a few months ago, I felt really alone because no one else was getting married at the GP- it feels better now that there are a bunch of us! Anyway- for pictures of the restaurants, you can look at this link Restaurant Photos They aren't very artistic, but they show the basic idea of what the restaurants look like. If I can do a PIP here, this is a pic from Del Sol of the Portofino terrace that we've selected- looks like an AWESOME location:) For more pictures of the resort, go to the Del Sol post http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t4276 They have a bunch of GP weddings that they've shot that show great views of the resort! As for the locations- the beach ceremony is usually done on the Kantenah beach, the beach gazebo is over by the White Sands area of the resort (by one of the snack bars, apparently), and I think the garden gazebo is located by the Colonial Kantenah lobby. I was all set on the beach gazebo, but now I'm looking at the beach option as well because all my guests are staying on the Kantenah side (at least, that is where we are staying, and most of our guests are sticking close to us, if possible).
  6. I've recently decided that it would be really nice if we could get at least a short video of our wedding. We won't really have much $$ to throw at a videographer, so I'm not expecting a movie quality cinematic masterpiece, but if anyone has a low cost, but still at least a little bit skilled, videographer they could recommend, I'd love some reviews and info or links to their websites. Thanks!
  7. We are thinking about doing our first dance during a cocktail hour (hopefully we get 25 people total OR they'll let us pay for 25 people and have it even if we don't have enough people). We are thinking of doing the cake cutting and first dance and father/daughter dance during the cocktail hour because we want the photographers there, and our dinner isn't until 7 (our photogs are only there from 1-6). I think that during the cocktail hour, they provide a soundsystem, and you can rent a mic if need be (its under $100, so not bad). We are booked in the Kantenah side of the resort- I liked the wilderness aspect of it.
  8. Jen and Tara- when are you ladies leaving for Mexico? I was looking at the thread thinking that there ought to be some weddings coming up, and then it hit me that it is actually January already. You both must be soooo excited!!

    FS: Pronovias wedding gown

    Sorry, this dress has been sold! Thanks for your interest!
  10. It is now even more simple to do the dinner reception at the a la carte since GP has gone to an unlimited a la cartes per person, no matter the length of the stay. Candice- I wish I could help you out, but we may not even hit 20, let alone 40 people, so we are just doing a group dinner at Portofino. Best bet is to just talk with Rocio and hopefully it will work out. Back when we thought we'd be having a larger group to go, my FMIL was saying that if we had a few over 40, she was going to 'get into it' with Rocio if we couldn't have the simple dinner at Portofino, but that was just her being crazy, I think! Good luck with your planning!
  11. For me, in my own personal situation, that would be a no. If my parents, or his parents, or my brother or his sister (all the VIPs) couldn't make it for basically any reason, we would plan something different. Its very important to us to have our very close family with us on our wedding day. However, everyone is in a different situations, and as some of the other ladies have mentioned there are reasons to go ahead even if they can't make it. It just depends on your situation!
  12. Gemstone- Where was your FBIL's wedding held? On the beach or at their wedding gazebo? I'm really wanting the gazebo, but I'm concerned about its proximity to the snack bar and having a ton of observers, so if you observed anything on that, I'd love to hear it! Did the bride or groom say anything about dealing with the wedding planner?
  13. I'm glad to hear a good review of them! I'm doing the dinner at Portofino for our wedding, so I'm glad it was as awesome as it seems on their website!
  14. I'm really glad I'm not the only one doing the legal ceremony! I know it might be disconcerting for you going down to do it, but I'm really hoping that your experience will be positive!! Then any tidbits you can share with me will just make me that much more ok with the whole experience:)
  15. Another question- for those of you doing the non-legal ceremony... has Rocio allowed you to do a lot of personalizing of the ceremony (given you contact info for the officiant or anything)? We were going to do the legal ceremony, but its pricier and I'm a bit worried that we won't get any sort of personalization in it because I can't seem to get contact info for the officiant from Rocio, and... I want it to reflect us more. If not, and suggestions on officiants in the PDC area we could bring in?
