  1. One more thing...if you go with Signature Vacations and fly with Skyservice please prepare yourself because you can not hang your wedding dress, you have to fold it and put it above you in your seat (which really is not that bad, I did not have to iron my dress for the day of the wedding) and if your travel agent tells you that she has given select seating to your group so you are all in the same area and can sit with your significant other don't believe her or him because it is out of their control once you get to the airport and Skyservice did not do that on the way going or coming home. The
  2. Hello, I got married at the Grand Palladium Riviera on November 19,2009. We did a private reception and had "DJ Bob" DJ our wedding. The photographer we used was Devin Card. The pictures he did for us our amazing. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Trust me, the wedding coordinator there knows what they are doing and you can tell specialize in this. We worked with Erika and she was great! At our private reception she stayed right till the very end. We did not have one thing go wrong at all. It was better than we expected. I highly reccomend this resort for a wedding. Plus, all
  3. Hi everyone! I leave Saturday November 14th to November 21st. We are doing the private reception and have hired DJ Bob as well. I will let you know how things go when we get back. We are very excited : )
  4. To all brides that were married at this resort... Can you please advise if you tipped on top of the package and private reception if you had one? My fiance and I are trying to figure out what other have done and if so how much? We leave November 14th and our wedding date is November 19th. We decided on the Civil Crystal wedding package and are finally relieved to know exactly what documents are needed. I will post incase any other Canadian brides are wondering. The internet can be pretty confusing since most is US based. This is if you have not been divorced, name changed or are a wi

  7. Photographer...I know this is going to sound crazy but we actually have our wedding photographer flying in from Victoria BC. It was a lot cheaper than other prices we were coming across. Devin Card Photography | Wedding Photographer Victoria BC Good Luck and Congratulations too!
  8. ChristinaP - We are staying in the Riviera Section at the Grand Palladium. My fiance and I have upgraded ourselves to the Royal Section and are only staying one week like our guests. We are going to go away on a honeymoon in the Spring 2010. Most of our guests are flying out of Toronto. I know my one cousin has received pricing around 1800.000 to 1900.00 all taxes in to fly out of Calgary but she is not sure she is coming since she has just had her baby last month. Some of our guest have inquired about hotels and transfer costs as well and my travel agent was able to give them pricing on that.
  9. Svetayasofiya - Congratulations on your wedding day! Very exciting once you get the date set. My fiance and I are getting married this November. The time of our wedding we went with was 4PM. That time of year the sun sets around 5:15PM so it was perfect time for us so it won't be too hot and time to get some pictures on the beach after the ceremony too! We are getting married at the Beach Gazebo. We are flying out of Toronto airport and the price we got was under $1500.00 all taxes in. We are going with Signature Vacations flying with Skyservice. I have a great Travel agent that I used.
  10. Hello, My fiance and I are doing the private reception as well. All the information that has recently been posted about the private reception is exactly what I have been told by either Erika or Rioco. We are having our reception from 7 PM till 11 PM at the La Laguna. I have a great picture that Rioco sent me of the La Laguna decorated that I can send as well. For some reason I can not attach on here. I did confirm that what ever price for the menu option (range from $50.00 US to $65.00 US) that we pick for the private reception it does include alcoholic and non alcoholic beve
  11. Hi Karie! Congratulations on your up coming wedding : ) My fiance and I get married at the Grand Palladium Riviera Nov 19,2009. We set up our wedding invitation as a boarding pass. It was a lot of fun to design. My friend actually is a graphic designer and does this. Her web site is: www.aprylsdesigns.com There are a few different options on there to help give you an idea. On the invitations we put the deposit amount that had to be booked ASAP to hold spot. When the balance had to be paid in full (2 months before departure date). We had our travel agent information

  13. Hi Shelly, I am still part of this thread even though my fiance and I decided to not get married at this resort. Our wedding is this Novemeber 2009 and the quotes we got back a few months ago for this resort was under $1400.00 all taxes in. This pricing was given to us in Dec 2008. I am a bride from Guelph Ontario. I find that insane the pricing you mentioned above for this resort especially for January. Plus it is just a few months after us your wedding. We are actually getting married at the Grand Palladium resort this November 2009 and out price is under $1500.00 all included. I
  14. Congratulations on the photographer!! We actually booked one last night. We got an amazing deal as well for the entire day from 2PM till 10 PM. We get the CD with all pictures, a hard cover album as well with 50 photos though. He also includes the next day as well for a photo shoot. Jennifer, we are getting married at 4PM too. How long was your ceremony? Leanne, are you doing a private reception or are you doing an alacarte reception? Due to the repsonse with people that are coming we have to do a private reception.
  15. I have a question...how long do you feel we need a wedding photographer for?? If anyone can let me know that would be great. I am trying to decide on that now as the cost can get pretty high. If anyone could give me their thoughs on this it would be greatly appreciated
