    Thank you so much for the info.  Have you made any other decisions?  We get married in 41 days!

        What did they charge you for the cocktail reception and dinner reception?  How did the evening go?

             How exciting! 41 days! I know from our previous visit last April 2012, the weddings that were going on on the resort were just beautiful!

            Just get ready for bugs. I'm bringing mosquito coils with us to ward them off La Laguna lol. Maybe 4 . One for each corner in the open air restaurant. Hopefully it works! We're having wedding sparklers lit for our wedding entrance. I really wanted fireworks on the beach like Palace Resorts but understandably, it would be harmful to the natural environment. I also wanted a horse and carriage to take us to the Church and then to the restaurant. Grand Palladium does not do this. Just those special elements that make you feel like princess are missing in this resort. I would've gone with Palace but we fell in love with GP and the Church onsite.

            Other than that, I pray you have beautiful weather on your wedding day!

              Hi Mikeycelle,

              I can't wait till your wedding now to hear how fantastic it is :)  You have a large wedding party, it sounds amazing though with so many people involved! That's great you managed to get a DJ booked also, have you thought about a photographer yet?  That's the only thing we have done except actually booking up

                Great idea to bring the mosquito coils - thanks :)

                  If you go for a private reception you will pay per person $50-60, however if you have less than 40 guests you can dine for free (included in the cost) in one of the restaurants.  The photos of Portofino lok amazing and really quite private despite being 'in' a restaurant because you get sole use of the terrace area

                    How excited are you?!? I'm getting married 3 weeks after you. You'll have to give us an update when you return :)

                       Hi claire0701,

                       

                      Yes, we have a photographer! My friends Carol and Chris of Benchwerk Photography, NYC. Luckily they have a timeshare in the Riviera Maya. They'll also be staying in GP for the week. We have DJ Doremixx booked, Lit dance floor and cold fireworks for 5 hours. 

                      Our cinematographer is Augustin Lira of Cinematic Riviera Maya. I'm getting the centerpieces and church flowers from the recommended florist Casa Narciso. I had prices and pictures emailed by Vanessa Roldan so we can choose what we like.

                      The bouquet I wanted is crazy expensive! I wanted cattleya orchids. You would think a tropical nation would have cheaper tropical flowers but no!  So I think I'm going with Alquimia Events to do my bridal bouquet and  5 bridesmaids bouquet of red roses and pink orchids. They gave me a better quote.

                      Haha! Yes we do have a large wedding party! I have a large family and he has a small family. We wanted a traditional wedding in a very non traditional setting.
