Im so pleased to hear all your comments about the resort and your awesome looking wedding! Thanks for posting all your thoughts about it.. as well as the pics :) 

 

The WC has informed me about the Gazebo, and that it may not be up and running by the time we get married in Feb... and provided pictures of the alternative location (the yuppa) which is where they situated your ceremony. It looked beautiful.  We have 3 bridesmaids and groomsmen on each side, which should give us enough space if need be, but I like your idea of having them stand outide the 'box' lol.

 

As for the 'rehearsal'... did they not provide you with one? Or did you not ask? My Mother-in-Law has been wondering that and I have no answers for her. How long was the ceremony anyways? Our time slot for the wedding is 3pm Ceremony, and 6pm dinner.  We opted out for the private reception as it was too much money for us, so we are having a dinner at the a'la carte resturant instead. Which I would like to ask...... did you eat at any one of them? and if so, can you reccommend one that is 'reception-quality'?? I was thinking the Momma Mia one (or something?) What do you think??

 

Must tell your bride that she looked incredible and chose beautiful bridesmaid dresses..! Yellow was my second pick. I went with orange instead. Nice contrast against the ocean and sand.

 

thanks again for posting pics, and comments. Im glad that you had a wonderful time, may this be the beginning of a wonderful life for you and your wife!

 

Cheers,

Hello Everyone,

 

We just returned from the Grand Princess on January 9th, the resort is Amazing!!! very beautiful, in fact I have guests that said that they well be returning. The Location for the wedding was very nice and off to the side, it was perfect as we only had a small group of 25 . For those of you that might have been worried like I was about hearing and seeing construction I didnt see a thing and we were in Platnium. We choose to do the a la carte reception at the mamma Mia and it was very good!! They set it up very nice with a head Table and it was off to the side which was very nice. For those of you that are worried about were to have your first Dance if you did not get the Dance floor they let us do are first dance right on the beach after the ceremony we really enjoyed that.

The only thing that I have to complain about was our wedding coordinator Mara there was not very good communication. For our  Nuptual breakfast we had to call room service ourselves which we thought she would have done for us, also we called the day after our wedding about our massage and we were told that that was our job to book it with the spa (which we were never told or we would have done it earlie) also there was no room decoration the night of our wedding which was supposed to be in the package. We just though we should have been told alot more at our meeting.

Another thing that was very nice was that my whole group was upgraded to Junior Deluxe instead of the standard Junior Suite my guests were very pleased with there rooms. One thing to that I thought I should mention A la cartes for Junior Suites and Deluxe suites were hard to book so let your guests know to book them right away as some of my guests were not able to book them, but if you are in Platnium it is way easier to book a la cartes I was even able to book 2 Group Suppers.( The fondue was amazing and also the Le fleur, awsome Filet)

I think this Place was perfect for our wedding!! and my Guests had so much fun at this resort ( as most of them like to party!!) Also Playa Del Carman was an awsome place to go some of us just got a big Taxi and all went together. I Hope that all you Couples out there have an amazing day just like we did and all the best in the future!!! If anybody has any questions feel free to email me and ask I'll be more then happy to answer any questions (:

 

Cheers,

 

Michelle

Hello Ladies,

 

I am new to this blog and I am set to get married at the GSP April 15, 2011. I was really excited reading this whole string of blogs until I got to the explosion part. One of the main reasons I chose this resort was because of the beautiful gazebo in which you had the choice to get married in. Imagine my heart break when I found out it was destroyed in the explosion.

 

Honestly i hope they have it rebuilt by April 2011, however I am concerned that they will not. We have a bridal party of 3 BM's and 3 GM's. With that "box" it seems as though they would get cut out of the picture anyway.

 

I truly hope they will rebuild the gazebo as I also had fantastic shoes to wear. haha! Any updates from anyone will be appreciated.

 

Much Thanks.

Hey Misshh,

 

Thanks for this awesome post. It helped me emmensly.  Im glad that you enjoyed your wedding, and it sounded like your guests had an awesome time as well.

 

I am getting married in Feb, so just around the corner in order to make final decsions... one being the a la arte restaurant.  We were thinking of the Mamma Mia one too, and from the sounds of it, you enjoyed that one very much.  Would you reccommend that one, or another one? I like how they gave you a head table.. I was wondering that myself.  We have 40 ppl with us... you think they'll charge me extra (cause it states room for 20ppl)

 

Where did you get married? was it in the gazebo? or the Yuppa (as they call it)?  Then did you have to ask for a first dance after the ceremony, or was that just provided? Did you have a song that you wanted them to play?  That was another worry of mine... that there wasnt going to be a 'first dance' unless you got a private reception or something.

 

We are staying in the platinum suite also, glad that it wasnt affected by the explotion, and that it didnt affect your time at the resort.

 

As for the WC... I have Mara also.. I will be sure to go much further in detail about the rooms, and spa arrangements... thanks for the heads up.

 

If there is anything else that you would like to mention, I am all ears! :)

 

Congrats on your wedding...

Hey Agirolamo,

 

I would reccomend the Mamma Mia.  The food was good and since you have to pick only one menu for your whole group it was easier with pasta, as everyone seems to like pasta. It was also nice being a little bit more private off to the side with a head table and they decorated with my flowers.  The cost for ala cartes for people over 20 is 12$ a person. I also saw  the Tai beach resturant and that seemed very nice( but it is more expensive). The Fondue resturant was very nice also and had really good food but I dont know how private it would be and I'm not sure where they would set it up as it is a little more open.

 

We got married at the yuppa and it was  very nice. We did not get a choice as the Gazebo was not available, but I think if the Gazebo was available I would have gone with that. We had to ask Mara for our first dance to be at the Beach  and we got to pick a song. (actually my husbands friend is a singer so he brought his guitar and sang us a song it was so nice!!) If you have a ipod you can bring it and give them songs to play there.(4 for the Ceremony and 1 for the Dance)

 

Yes definatly a good idea to go in depth with Mara, even after we asked about there being no decoration in our room they just put towel art on our bed. Im not sure if thats all there is supposed to be because the package stated that there was supposed to be Honeymoon Amminities and room decoration which I thought would be more then that for your wedding night!!( I was very disappointed)

 

If you have any more questions dont hesitate I would be more then happy to answer any questions you have!!!!!!

I can also send you a pic of the mamma mia resturant if you want to give me your email

Hello,

 

Thanks for all the info,

 

Im getting married there Jan 31st, I have previously been to this resort and know how beautiful it is. I am also wondering about how you did the first dance and if music was provided. Also what did you do after the dinner?

 

I didnt see your pics have you posted any? Id love to see them!

 

Another thing, did you give out OOT bags or give anything to your guests?

 

Thanks

Hi Misshh and all my fellow Mexico brides,

 

Thanks for all the information!  I'm getting married at GRP in April and having our reception at Mamma Mia as well.  Just wondering if you could PM me some pics of the restaurant.  When I 'google' it there seems to be 2 different pictures that come up.  They don't look very similar so it's hard to believe that they are the same restaurant.

 

Of course, I can't seem to get any answers from our WC, Alejandra.  I emailed her on Jan 5th and still have not heard back from her.  SO FRUSTRATING!!

 

My guess is that you stayed on the 'Sunset' side in Platinum... Did you happen to notice how the construction on the 'Riviera' side is coming along?  Many of our guests are booked in Platinum suites as well and I've heard that the pools are closed in that area along with the Platinum Lounge, of course.  I'm waiting to hear back from my travel provider to see what the status will be by the time we arrive as I don't feel it's fair that we've been charged the full amount for these rooms if all the amenities are not available.  

 

My email address is lraible@hotmail.com.  Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated!

 

I wish you all the best!!

Leanne.

    • 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!
