    Arrghh, stupid me, ignore my message above. I went back and re-read the recent posts and the bride who had already booked her restaurant is getting married in less than 3 months, not 2010! Sorry, I'm super tired these days, the end of the school year is upon me and my students have been draining all possible energy out of me!!

      Thanks for the info jkcz0702. The general impression i get from reading posts to date is that it mostly all works out one way or another. The question is, how not to stress in that time leading up to it, non?

      I think one way to possibly get around the limited light for post ceremony photos is to consider a trash the dress shoot the day after, that way you get the best of both worlds - light for the ceremony/sunset pics, then candid light pics later.

        Just wanted to let you know we returned from a fabulous wedding in Cuba. It wasn't what I originally planned, but it was absolutely amazing, couldn't have asked for more. Will post pictures and a review soon.

So for half of these pictures at least one of us thought we were flying out the next day!

                    I thought I'd post them because inspite of all the things that can go wrong a wedding at GBP is amazingly stress free and so worth it! Claudia, the photographer did a great job and Liam, the groom, did a great job of pretending!

                    Maggie, your wedding was beautiful! Liam did a great job of pretending and you look gorgeous!! The children you had at the wedding were adorable too. How was Frutos del Mar for the reception dinner?

At the Dolce Vita we did the melon proc. I think minestrone soup and then grouper and chicken for the main dish. Our wedding cake we chose the 3 milk everything was really good. I have never been to Mexico in August we may go this August I hear it is really hot but they have the pool and beach so on the days besides the wedding you will be cool!!!
                      Thanks for the info Jen! From the sounds of it, our wedding is going to be following along the lines of yours!! Evening ceremony, dinner at the Dolce Vita, poolside reception after. Good idea about the tipping to get other drinks and just sticking with the special cocktails package. :)

                      Does anyone know if we can get in touch with the resort DJ now? I don't know which one we booked, all I know is we have him or her from 8:00-10:30.
