Valerie,

I'm sure you are super excited to be leaving in 10 days! Are you all set and ready to go? How many people do you have going? Are you doing the private beach reception or the al a carte? Which photographer are you using? Are you getting your hair and makeup done at the resort? I hope you do a review of it all when you get back.

 

Tiffany

Hi Llama,

My suggestion is to shop around and in the 'Mexican Spirit', barter with a few different travel agents.
I sent a general email out to a few different agents in my area stating the resort I wanted to book at and the price point I was willing to pay. When I started getting quotes back I would forward the lowest quote out to the other agents asking them to beat it, and so and so forth...In the end, we ended up getting upgraded to Junior Deluxe suites and free first class upgrades for my fiance and I for $1652.25 all taxes and fees included ($1350 before taxes) departing out of Vancouver.

Hope this helps!

Hi Tiffany!

 

I am definetly getting really excited! It's coming up so quick! We are basically all ready to go... a couple of lil things left but nothing major... we're just really excited at this point!

 

We have a group of 34 people coming down with us and no, I am not doing the private beach reception, we booked an A La Carte dinner, we just didn't think it was worth it for the cost (it's about $80 or $90 USD per person now...)

 

For the photographer, I am actually bringing down my own photographer... I am paying for his trip and he is doing all my pictures for free all week so it was a really good deal considering the price they charge down there for a photographer. Just for the ceremony and a few pictures on the beach (not the getting ready in morning or dinner or first dance or anything) they charge over $1100 USD + taxes! Considering the trip was only $1300 taxes in, it's definetly worth it and then we'll have GREAT pictures all week including some on the beach and at the rehersal dinner, and getting ready in the morning and pictures all night of the wedding with the first dance and all! And he's gonna give me all the CD with all the pictures so I can print whatever I want ;-)

 

For makeup and hair, I'm gonna do my own makeup but I'm gonna get my hair done over there... Apparently they are pretty good, just make sure that you bring pictures to show what you want because they don't really speak english.... But I'll let you know when I get back how it went and I'll post some pictures!

 

I'll do a review on my return to let you girls knwo how everything went!

The wedding packages for 2009 are around $1500 to $2000 USD depending on what you are looking for. Let me know if you want me to send you more info.
Wow! SO close now! You must be so excited!! I would love for you to send me the packages, and also if you have time when you get back, would love to see your pics, here about the wedding, which package you chose etc!!

And awesome price! I looked on itravel right after you replied. The sunset side seems to be way more reasonable than the riviera side...do you have any idea why?

It sure does! What a great idea! I've also been told we should wait a few months to book because the wedding is still nine months away.

If you don't mind me asking, how many guests do you have going and what package did you chose?

TarynLynn,

I am pretty new to all of this, so I am not sure but here is an idea as to why this may be happening. I have read somewhere, either in one of the threads or on a hotel website that some resorts won't book the wedding until closer to the date (6-9 months). Possibly they arent' taking reservations yet, or don't have the authority to charge your card yet...?

Hope this helps! Also, who is your contact at the resort. I have Diana's email and she has been great so far...

Hello Val - can you email me the packages to annieanddaryl@gmail.com. I just want to do Renewal of Vows which I believe is $800, but I need to clarify this...

Thanks!

I was thinking of bringing my own photographer (pay for his trip and he does the pictures for "free") But I would still like to have a cake and maybe some extra decorations... Have you had a chance to look into any "extras" available?

Thanks

Val - can you email me and tell me who your photographer is: annieanddaryl@gmail.com.

Hi ladies,

 

So I have just spent hours reading through the whole thread and noticed that several of you on here have been married at the GSP and are willing to email wedding photographs! If anyone of you is reading this, would you mind sending me some! It is such a gorgeous resort, but I am having a hard time envisioning my wedding day...I'm hoping some of your pics might help!

 

My email is

 

woolly007@hotmail.com

 

Thanks so much!

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
