I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium resorts in Puerto Aventuras next year, and I'm wondering if there are any more GP brides on here whom I could collaborate with! Thanks ladies!

Wow! I'd love to see any pictures that you have from your site visit to GP! Also, which area did you feel was most central? I'm wanting my guests to have a good location between the beach, pools and food. Did you get to meet with Rocio while you were there, or talk to anyone about wedding related things? I'd love to hear ANYTHING you noticed during your visit! If you'd rather email me, you can reach me at coppergoddess13 at gmail dot com. Thanks so much!

Hi ladies, nice to hear from more GP brides! I am waiting for Rocio to fax me the signed wedding contract, so then I will be set for the resort reservations. We did a block of rooms through Olga and I wrote up a contract for that. We got a really great rate of $85 pp/pn, but we have to pay the hotel everything directly, meaning guests cannot call in and pay with their own cc to get this rate. It is a group rate block, so it is a little inconvenient making people send us a check for their rooms, but we just did it mostly for immediate family and bridal party to ensure we got them an affordable rate. Most of the advertised rates for this hotel are more around $150 pp/pn. We are having our guests stay at the Colonial, I just thought it was best as it is most central to the resort. Our ceremony is on Friday, June 5, 2009 at 5:00pm on the Kantenah beach. Private Reception at La Laguna from 7pm-11pm. We have to pay $45-55 per person to have the private reception, but preferred it to the non-private dinners at the a la cartes. Also, we have to choose one menu item for everyone to have, but there is one that has salmon and steak, so we figure there should be something for everyone. Also, if you are thinking about getting married there, try to make sure you get the 2008 rates for the ceremonies, as the 2009 rates are much more expensive. I think if you talk to Rocio about it and reserve your date now, you can get it. I think 2009 is like $500-1000 more, depending on the package you choose. Also, we are brining our own officiant, one of our good friends does it, so she is taking $250 off our package since we won't need the minister included. So, it has been a really fun experience planning it at the GP, and we have been able to make things happen within our budget. Since we are paying for our wedding on our own, we really don't want to bust the budget. Let me know if you have any q's, pm me or feel free to email me at hannaono@gmail.com

hanna- wow, it sounds like you are on top of things! I was wondering- how did you approach Rocio about decrease of your package due to bringing your own officiant? When I mentioned taking out the cost of flowers b/c I wanted to bring my own fake flowers, she actually seemed very hostile about it, which I was not expecting- it was just a simple question! Any suggestions on how to approach such things would be appreciated!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
