Hi again TaKelly!!

We are actually having our group meet up at the Lobby Bar on the Sunset Side (I'm sure you will be on the Sunset Side since the Platinum Suites on the he Riviera still haven't been repaired after last year's accident).  The Lobby bar is actually really awesome! It's an open air building (with a roof of course)  has a ton of really of cute couches, tables and loungers. We tried out both the Sunset and the Riviera Lobby bars and we found that we liked the Sunset Side better as it had more of a Lounge feel.  

If you didn't want to do the Lobby Bar, you can go to this Bar that has the Live music every night.  This is a REALLY cute area that is right in the middle of all of the ala carte restaurants.  I love this area because it is really fun and lively but it can get really crowded at night so people in your group might not have a place to sit down.

Let me know if you have any more questions! :)

Thanks for all your info.   I just was wondering if there was any difference in the sides (grand sunset/grand riviera) ?? I have booked which side to stay on yet because I am a little confused.  Also, Is the beach as bad as some reviews say it is?   Im also getting married at the GSP in April 2012.. When is your wedding date?

Hi Ladies..

This whole planning thing is soo new to me but I am more than extatic that I have found this forum.  I just wanted to let everyone know that I just came back from GSP as my fiance realized I was having reservations about the resort (or a destination wedding period) and surprised me and took me there last week.  It was beautiful and I was able to talk to the wedding coordinator (elizabeth) who was so wonderful and professional.  There are two Gazebos to be married at: one is in the middle of the beach with all your speedo baring bystanders OR the other gazebo is at the far end of the property  on the beach in the "CHill out" (formerly Thai beach club).  This gazebo is SUPER private as guests need to pay to be in the beach club (and have to be gone by 530).  While I was there, I saw 3 weddings.  We have decided to have the private beach party at the chill out, but was wondering if anyone had eaten there... and what the food was like?? I ate at all the restaurants while I was there except for La Fleur, so if you have any questions let me know.  I also have pictures from the gazebos (BOTH) ... Not decorated, if you'd like me to send them.  There's soooo much to do!!!!

    • 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!
