  1. well i'll be damned, awesome! Thank you
  2. I noticed the unique set up of the stones at the sunset gazebo! Love this!!!! We are there to at 4pm for our March ceremony; was this set up something special you requested? How neat looking!!! Thanks
  3. Nov2013maya - thanks so much for your feedback We are done with worrying about timing lol I had to eventually move on and I'm glad our plan seems suitable! Our MCs have the order of events, now they get to fly lol. I very much appreciate both your feedback and amanda's regarding spa services! I have been wracking my brain about them; my emails continue to bounce back with the spa, even though they can email me! I've heard quotes ending up being much higher with hair and based on your experiences that seems to be the case. We are helping the ladies with their hair/makeup (paying for either one or the other, not sure yet), so I've wanted to know what I'm walking into lol you know?? I value the feedback of getting a trial - I think my makeup would definitely be the item I'm most concerned about. I've asked the spa for pictures of previous brides. I will plan to do a trial makeup, so thank you guys again! PS we are doing the Chillout lounge as well and I'm so thrilled to hear both of you talking highly about this experience! Bah! March 8th is coming fast!!!
  4. amanda there were recent reviews of this in the grand sunset princess forum thread:) http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/22533-grand-sunset-princess-resort/page-172

Jaime & I vacationed at GSP last May & loved it so much we decided to come back for our wedding! I am just looking for some opinions. We are getting married fairly early in the day. Right now our ceremony is at 2pm. We are thinking about looking into pushing this back to 4pm or later. What would you suggest? We have our dinner set for La Fondue. Also I am deciding if I should make the flowers for my bridesmaids/groomsmen/mothers/fathers. I would like my flowers to be real, yet I don't seem to like the look of the 4 choices of flower we get to choose from. As far as flowers for the ceremony & dinner go, do I decide that when we arrive or before hand? One more question, what has seemed to be the best option for photography? I don't like the resort options. I would like to hire someone offsite & pay for them to come to the resort. We would also like the "rights" to ALL (most) of our photos, not just 20 or 30. If anyone has had an offsite photographer, did GSP have any problems getting them into the resort? Thanks for your time!! I really need the help Lacy Congrats Lacy! SO wonderful that you got to see GSP and fell in love with it. I cannot wait for our wedding in March :) With flowers etc you were likely given the form to fill out by your wedding coordinator (Memo!? MR. Guillermo)…On this form you indicate the flowers/cake etc you want. With your dinner, I believe if you choose the restaurant option that comes with the package, you have a set menu of sorts. We are at the chillout lounge and chose a buffet menu this past month. I imagine that your flower choices could be made pretty close to the date. I’ve never hesitated to send any and all questions to the coordinator – he knows it ALL! I am on same page with flowers, and decided to get “real touch†flowers made for our corsages, bouquets, etc. Our colors are purple, teal and peacock so nothing caught my eye with the resort’s options. All of our flowers have come to about 477 with shipping, which doesn’t feel too bad. We are not going with a lot of extras, so this was an area we decided to do a bit more on. I am using the resort flowers as my toss bouquet. The real touch flowers are cool because you can bring them to and from mexico; I like the idea of keeping my bouquet forever With photography, it was a whirlwind and months of deciding for us. In the end we went with Gonzalo Nunez and we love him without even meeting him. I’ve seen tons of awesome things about him and he can work within your budget and is quite affordable. Outside vendor fee for him or any off site vendor is 200 a day. Our trash the dress is outside of the resort so we are only paying 200 for the one day. Hope this helps! Other brides who’ve already been married there would likely have even more to offer.
  6. Hey ladies! QUESTION ABOUT HAIR AND MAKEUP - PLZ HELP! I received the spa menu for pricing on hair/mkeup and I've heard from several peope here that they tend to be very expensive. Right now based on the exchange of canadian to pesos, my bridal hair and makeup would only be around 131 dollars. I feel a little lost on this because they of course cannot quote you an exact price until you are there - did any of you send pics to the spa and see what they would quote you? Thanks!
  7. Hey peeps! Question about timing for reception - we are getting married at the grand sunset on march 8th YIPEEE! In planning the wedding programs and inputing the "agenda" for the reception, I am wondering what you guys think about order of events. Wedding is at 4, with pics to be done around 440 before sunset hits too much lol. We have the CHILLOUT LOUNGE at the GSP from 6-10, and my wedding coordinator suggested the following order of events - wecome cocktails, speeches, dinner, cake etc... I am guessing that between the wedding and reception people will definitely go for snack seeing as food is at their disposal whenever they want!!! If we start at 6, do speeches from 630 to 7 or so, then eat, does that seem ok? Thanks ladies!

  9. b21fly - Mrs. Brown - AWESOME REVIEW! I appreciated the detail you put into this review; our wedding is at the Sunset Gazebo on March 4th and we are using the Chillout Lounge for our reception. Hearing about Guillermo (who we call Memo lol) being so helpful is very much in line with how we’ve found him so far through email! Covering all details of a wedding from across the country can be very challenging but his humor and friendliness puts us at ease. All the best in your marriage!!!!

    Cheap Maracas For Reception!

    These maraca posts helped me convince fiance they were a good idea lol! We are having a peacock type themed wedding with purple and teal, and had first considered wine and bottle opener ideas. However, these maracas from amols.com were just too cool to pass up! We ordered a pair for each of the 40 guests, in purple and the seafoam green! Only came to 123 dollars WITH 45 BUCKS IN SHIPPING! Can't go wrong. We're also attaching mini bubbles with tags to the wedding programs at the ceremony:) :cool:

  14. Love my peacock one from Cheryl at Gibson Garters on Etsy! I bought the larger one with 2 feathers to keep, our "throw" garter is a surprise for guests https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/118548336/white-lace-wedding-garter-white-stretch?ref=shop_home_active

    Wedding Favors?

    Hey ladies! I read the maraca questions about shipping to canada and phoned to inquire more. She said the shipping is given once you get to the check out where you put in your postal code. I did this and it shows 33 dollars, and my order would be 20 pairs total. I didn't see anything further about customs, etc., does anyone have history of a larger order and then issues with customs? the woman on the phone wasn't helpful with regards to "hidden" fees that could come along with an order this big. Any help would be much appreciated, purple and turquoise maracas would be awesome for our wedding at the GSP in mexico
