      Hi there Cherrybomb, quick question:

       

      At what time did you have your dinner reception and was it not hot since it sounds like it was an open-air restaurant? are there any indoor restaurants? I am wondering because i expect my guests to dance and if we have a reception in one of the open air restaurants, I 'd like to know where there is air conditioning (or not!).

       

      THANKS

          Congrats CherryBomb! Thanks so much for sharing your story and I'm so happy to hear about another smashing success of a wedding at the GP. I simply cannot wait for November 11 when we leave. It can't get here fast enough! lol

           

           

          For anyone who has already been married at the GP, can you tell me a little about the ceremony itself. Since there is no "rehearsal" I'm sort of trying to make sure that I have the order of things in my head, so I can prepare certain guests/wedding party who are asking questions. Also, I'm trying to figure out how much music/songs I need for processional stuff. Like does the groom and best man walk in by themselves? First? Do the parents get a special entrance? Before or after groom? How long were you guests seated and waiting for all of this to happen? Trying to figure out how many songs I need for people to walk into, and if/how much music I need for guests to listen to while they're being seated and waiting.

           

          Thanks!

            Thanks Cherrybomb! Awesome review.....I was wondering if your HDC package was expensive? I've been to their site and their photos look impressive.

            Thanks so much!

                My date is April 28, 2011 and I have confirmed it with Carolina as well as sent her the Wedding Agreement. Is there anything else I should be doing or communicating with her about? I see people discussing menus and stuff so I want to make sure I am not behind on anything! Thanks!

                  My date is April 30, 2011! I only did what you did. Carolina told me just to wait until I get down there about the menu and stuff.

                    Technically, you can wait until you get down there to do everything (fill her in on what you want for the menu, reception, decorations, DJ/no DJ, etc. etc.). You'll have your meeting with Carolina a day or two before the wedding and she'll go over it all then. Honestly, I think the advance planning a lot of us do is more for our peace of mind...Caroline doesn't really need the advanced notice unless maybe you wanted something really out of the ordinary.

                      Hey, what was the wedding agreement??? I booked my date with Carolina back in April and it was only through email.
