I'll be having my wedding November 8th 2012 at the grand palladium white sands resort. I'm excited and stressed all at the same time. Everyone's posts seem very helpful.
I'm getting nervous about how much this is going to cost. I'm for sure having a private reception/ dinner but it seems a little crazy to me that they want to charge me $50-$65 per person for this dinner, especially since all my guests will be staying at the hotel and it's all inclusive. can anyone who has had their wedding there or will be having their wedding there and know the information, please tell me what was included with this $50-$65 pp price, does that include a open bar, and was the food amazing?
I'm currently working with destinationweddings.com to help me plan this. The prices they quoted me for rooms seem ok, but I'm not receiving a group discount although I have about 20 rooms I'm ready to block. Does anyone know if the prices were cheaper through the hotel its self? did the hotel give any extras or discounts for a certain amount of rooms booked? for comparison reasoning the price I was quoted (with double occupancy) for a basic junior suite for 4 nights was $748 pp. does this sound about right? or should I be getting a better deal for my guests? Any other tips and tricks for planning one of the most important days of my life at the GP white sands are greatly appreciated
