Thank you so much for your review and info on your wedding. I have been juggling with the decision of where to book my upcoming wedding but I keep coming back to the Grand sunset princess. I recieved some info from the resort but I am still a bit confused with the wedding packages. does it work out ok having the time limits on the reception? does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind of reception to go for. I am really laid back and dont mind making my own reception anywhere we can find music :) But can that work?

Please advise

Hey Ladies,


I was wondering for those of you who have been down to the GSP resort and area, what currency you travelled with. We received notification from our travel agent that they are not accepting American bills. For those Canadian Brides who have been down to the area recently can you please advise what currency you brought?



I would prefer to travel with American as Peso's accumulate into a large amount when you start bringing hundreds of dollars.


Also, are there any brides who bank with Royal Bank of Canada? If so, did your debit card work down there?


Thank you

Hello april bride,


I went to playa del carmen last year and I only took american $. Don't bring to much, because it's easy to paid whith credit card (mastercard worked). And if you like you can exchange american $ to peso directly from the hotel front desk or down tow, but you don't really need to do it.


Good Luck

NSCHEATHAM: In your meeting with the WC you will go over the ceremony. I did the renewal of vows but they do the same ceremony as the legal one.

We will be travelling to GSP in October 2011.  Here is what my travel agent said about currency:


The Mexican Government recently passed a law that went into effect across the country on September 14, 2010. The objective of this legislation is to limit and control the movement of USD CASH within Mexico. Travelers need to be advised that USD CASH will no longer be widely accepted everywhere in Mexico As of September 14, 2010, here are the more noticeable restrictions to the use of USD CASH to make purchases in Mexico:


1. Hotels and money exchange booths will only be able to change a maximum of $1,500 USD CASH per person per month into Mexican Pesos. Previously there was no limit.


2. Businesses (including Amstar DMC in Mexico) will only be able to accept a maximum of $100 USD CASH per transaction – but the number of transactions per customer is not restricted.


3. Certain businesses may not be able, or may choose not to, accept USD CASH for any purchases at all. (This could include shops, restaurants, etc.)


For example, if a customer wants to purchase a local tour worth $139 USD per person, he will only be able to pay $100 USD in USD CASH and the remainder will need to be paid in another form (i.e. credit card, Mexican Pesos or Travelers†Checks).Other payment methods such as credit cards of all types, travelers†checks, Mexican Pesos, and non-US foreign currencies in cash (i.e. Euros, Canadian Dollars, etc.) are not affected by this new law. (*Note: I was in Mexico in December of 2010, and all cab/bus drivers, food servers, maids, etc accepted USD. But you may want to go to your local bank to order Pesos, or a local Money Exchange.


Hope this helps!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
