My guests enjoyed it and it was a really nice change from the resort food.

 

We all went to Alux: http://www.aluxrestaurant.com

 

It was absolutely gorgeous!!! We had 26 people in all for dinner and our coordinator at Alux gave us a group menu with special pricing. It was worth it

 

 

please forward the details of your venue to my email. emily.teacher@hotmail.com

I love the idea of going off site!

Thanks for sharing!

After a long process of planning, my fiance and I decided on the Grand Riviera Princess and will be getting married July 2, 2013! We have a group of around 40 (including kids) coming down for 1 week with us (we are all from Toronto). We chose the Royalty Package which includes dinner at one of the a la carte restaurants and then the private cocktail beach reception after.

 

I'm still trying to decide on the restaurant - does anyone have insight or feedback? Also, I know there are set menus with the restaurants - what happens if you choose a set menu that has meat and you have people that are vegetarians? Is it possible to have options for both vegetarians and non vegetarians?

 

Also, I've heard the DJ isnt that great - does the DJ bring his own speakers? Or is it just a dock that he uses? Are we better off bringing our own dock and music? We really enjoy our loud music so I'm wondering if the dock would be loud enough?

 

Lastly - does anyone have pictures of their private beach reception? I hvaent seen very many but I'd really like to.

 

Any other brides going to be around during that time?

 

:D So excited!!

guess I will be seeing you there Triuphbiss...We are arriving on the first and getting married on the 4th...still not decided on the whole venue thing...best of luck with the rest of your planning!

I can provide a little bit of insight (I think) =)

The Fondue restaurant was OK at best. The Japanese Restaurant was very good and same with the Italian. If you let your wedding coordinator know that there are vegetarians, they usually do everything they can do accommodate.

We had the DJ for ours and we had a set playlist that I made and he played everything from start to finish and dead on with the flower toss/first dance/garter toss songs. So we actually had a really good experience with him.

We had all of our music on our iPhone (there is a wedding DJ app you can download and it was honestly a lifesaver!)

Thank you so much for your insight Brandie28! We really liked the setup of the La Fondue restaurant with the large windows, we thought it was really beautiful - but we werent sure how good the food would actually be! Thank you for the info on the vegetarians as well - I hadnt heard back from Emma yet regarding this.

 

I'll absolutely look into the wedding DJ app, that sounds like something that would be a great idea! My fiance and I are big music heads so we want to make sure all our songs will be played :) Glad to hear you had a good experience with him!

We are staying on the sunset side and will be having swim-up rooms....we are leaving from Montreal, but some of our guests are from TO....my spouse is originally from Toronto.

Still haven't decided anything regarding the venue, wedding package, and so on...just booked. We were innitially going to Panama.  Everything was booked, invitations sent out and then the airline cie, switched the flight date...by four days. So we had to cancel.

 

Oh well, everything happens for a reason I guess!

 

Any advice you can send my way would be appreciated.

 

My personal email is emily.teacher@hotmail.com

 

All the best!

Hey ladies! I am starting my wedding countdown! 1 month and 4 days! I am trying to get everything together and set. I was wondering if anyone has had their hair done at the spa at GSP? I'm worried that my hair will turn out looking like a prom up-do when I want a loose curls beachy look.

Calibride - my BM's had their hair done there and it turned out amazing! They each brought a picture of a look they wanted to go for so I would suggest that..

Hi ladies, I got married at the grand sunset princess on December 5th and it was amazing. We did the sunset gazebo and the chill out lounge and I wouldn't change a thing. Below are links to some photos you can see some of the chill out area and gazebo in them. I also got my hair and makeup done at the spa (didnt bring any pictures) and i was really happy with how it tuned out. We also did a trash the dress shoot a few days after the wedding and it was unbelievable. Highly recommend Juan Navarro as a photographer. If you have any questions let me know. http://www.juanphotos.com/blog/weddings/grand-sunset-princess-destination-wedding-shelbi-mike-riviera-maya-q-roo-mexico-2/ http://www.juanphotos.com/blog/weddings/tulum-cenote-akumal-beach-trash-the-dress-shelbi-mike-rivera-maya-q-roo-mexico/

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
