On a different note, what's your oppinion about the beach reception? -

Also- does anyone have suggestions for groomsmen gifts- something more unique than a flask? LOL Altough the boys like their flasks I was hoping there was something more original out there!

So I have sent several emails to GRP and have gotten no where. Is there anyone else having trouble getting in contact with the wedding coordinator? I am getting a little concern beacause my wedding is June and I don't even have a quote. Any suggestions.

Hi Tonya!


I'm getting married at GSP on Arpil 29th!!!! I'm getting really excited! We're flying out on April 25th and we'll be there for 2 weeks (one week with the group and 1 week for our honeymoon). So I guess we'lls ee each other down there! I am also from Canada, we are from Ottawa ;-)


Have you finalised all you details yet? Are you doing the beach ceremony or the Gazebo? Which restaurant did you pick for the dinner? Did you book a hair appointment or are you doing it yourself? Are bringing any favors for the guests? I was thinking of buying some things down there cause I won't have room in my luggage for anything!



The countdown is on!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!

Hi ladies!!! I am new to this forum....I chose to get married in GSP since my fiance proposed to me there last year...I picked February 2010.....Now our families are worried over the drug wars they are having out there as well as the kidnappings...I spoke to the wedding coordinator and she said the resorts are the safest places to be in but I am concerned about some of our family not going because they are scared...Any suggestionshuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gif??


As for GSP, it is a beautiful resort...Ive been there twice and I never want to leave....I feel that they have to many restrictions as the wedding goes and at times I feel that they are a little disorganized but you have to take into consideration that they are a new resort.


I've been thinking of getting an outside wedding planner because GSP only provides you with all the basics and I want my decor to stand out.


I have GSP wedding packages and some pics if anyone is interested!!!

Hey Ladies


Has anyone do a legalize ceremony with the minister? If so, how did that go? Any advice. My main concern is the order of the ceremony and the vows. I want to see what she is going to say before she says it and make sure the order of the ceremony goes smoothly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Valerie,

Have you finalised all you details yet? - we are working on them.


Are you doing the beach ceremony or the Gazebo? - The Gazebo -


Which restaurant did you pick for the dinner? None - we are doing the beach ceremony.


Did you book a hair appointment or are you doing it yourself? - I have not made yet but I am planning to do trial - hopefull around the 24. We will be arriving there on the 19.


Are bringing any favors for the guests? - we made a donation to the Alberta Cancer Society - so we will have some cards "from the cancer foundation" attached to some candies from Canada and Colombia (my fiancee is from Colombia) -


We are looking to hire a band - We looked prices outside the resort but they are even higher than the resort- any ideas?

Hi Ladies,


Well after a month of looking over resorts we finally are settled on the GP resorts not sure which side yet, waiting on prices. I was a little worried to some of the reviews I was reading on tip advisor but all in all the resort looks beautiful!! I am hoping that these bad reviews are wrong.


I recieved wedding information from the WC already and found some stuff to be VERY pricy!! I would LOVE to see any pics that anyone has from this resort espeically any wedding photos. Any other information about the resort I would love to hear about it.


I am from Cambridge ON. We are planning on marrying in April of 2010! I look forward to taking with you all about the GP and planning the wedding!


Tty ladies soon,

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
