We are planning a wedding there next May (2014), and I do have a question for you all. I live in the United States, and I was wondering if any of you know of a travel agency that will do the things that I have seen some of you Canadian ladies have found offered; such as set up a wedding website or act as a liaison between you and the resort. I did a little bit of searching online, but was not able to find something like this offered.
I am learning so much from all of you. Thank you for sharing all of your information!!

Outside vendors are allowed without a fee. You may need to include them in the guest count for dinner though (since generally you need to provide a meal for them). We are bringing in an outside photographer and it is not an issue, but you will need to let your coordinator know so that they can meet them in the lobby on the day of.

At the time they arrive they have to go directly to one of the buffets to dinner so, will be they "umconfortable" being with the OOT bag at the "hand" until they go to sleep?
Norma, I had asked that to Vanessa but she told me no exception.
Bre, inside the OOT bags I am just putting some "funny" things: coloured sun glasses for the pools/sea (so they have not be worried of loosing the expensive ones), "chinese" fans (in Spanish we call this "pay pay" but I have no idea of how to say this in English), mini cards, flower hairpin.. (you can see the photos at the right side of the computer screen where it says "recent images in this thread")
Welcome to the forum Kylie!!! I I am bringing several vendors at there are no fee for this but things have changed at GP with the new wedding packages and costs. I suggest you to write a mail to your planner in which the only thing you are asking her is about the photographer. Which is your WC by the way?
About the pass or night cost I think it was sth around 40usd for the pass, I remembered it was cheaper one type of pass. Sorry to not be helpful !
Thank you so much ladies for all your responses and help! I'm super excited about joining this forum and hearing all your great ideas and pieces of advice! Great news about the photographer and even better if there isn't a fee! My wedding coordinator is Grace - she is usually good at answering questions, but takes a long time to reply.
That would be wonderful if the pass is only $40 usd! I was thinking it would be a lot more. If anyone else has looked into this and can confirm, please let me know.
