    We are staying there for a week (arriving on the Saturday, wedding on the Thursday) and then leaving from Mexico to go to Hawaii for our one-week honeymoon.  I'm sooooo looking forward to it!!  :) :) :)

    I can't wait to hear how things go and hopefully see some pictures!!  How long are you staying there for??

      Stephy, that's really exciting!  It's going to be a great trip...well, both of them will be great!  I was just going to ask how many people you had going, but I just noticed...65!  That's awesome!!  Are your guests staying for the whole week too?

        Welcome Caroline!!!  It's always nice to find other GP brides :)

         

        We have picked La Laguna for our reception dinner.  When I first asked my wedding planner about both location, she just said that La Laguna is surrounded by pools and that Gran Azul is surrounded more by the jungle.  Here are pictures that she sent me to compare them both:

        Hi everyone,

         

        I'm new to posting on this site, but I have been reading all the posts, and there is a wealth of info here. Congrats to everyone getting married. We have booked our wedding for November 10, 2011.

        Just a question, I'm in the process of trying to decided where to have our cocktail reception. I have been given the choice of La Laguna and Gran Azul. Does anyone know if one appears to be a better choice than the other? Laine described La Laguna as beautiful, but I don't remember seeing anything posted here about Gran Azul. Also, I have received several pictures of flower samples. Does anyone know if they are all the same price, or do the prices vary depending on the flowers you choose.

         

        Thanks,

        Caroline

          We are beyond excited to have so many guests!  We were expecting maybe 40 at the most!  Such a great surprise to see that so many people are willing to travel so far for us.  It's going to be great.  60 of our guests are staying for the whole week and 5 of them already live in Mexico, so they will be staying for 3 days.

            That's is awesome!!!  We have more going than we expected, and that's only 22-23 people! 

             

            TY for the pick of Gran Azul as well, I hadn't seen that one before.

              Hello Ladies,

               

              I am new to this site and we have decided to get married at White sands so I am starting all my research. I have a couple questions.

              We are expecting 60 to 80 people and I have read that we will need to do a private dinner for that. Does anyone know which restaurants are available for that?

              Also do they have the dinner and dance in the same location and can we bring our own music on IPod?

               

              Thanks

              Rachel

                If you have that many people I think your only option is Gran Azul or La Laguna... check with the coordinators. They really know everything and they are amazing!

                  Hi Rachel!  Welcome and congrats!! 

                   

                  With that many guests, I believe dawn is correct.  Double check with the WC though. 

                  For the music, the dinner and dancing is at the same place for the private reception.  You can bring your iPod and they have the cord to connect it to the speakers they provide.  They also provide a microphone with the other two pieces, already mentioned.

                    Welcome Rachel!

                    There are 70 of us at our wedding and we had to have a private reception, since the maximum you can be at one of the a-la-carte restaurants is 40, I believe.  Like the other ladies have mentioned, you'd have to pick between Gran Azul or La Laguna.
