    Hi Ladies!

    I have a question for the women who have already gotten married at the GSP/GRP.

    How long, approximately, did it take you to walk down the aisle? I'm trying to plan what song I'll be walking down to, and from looking at pictures it looks like a pretty long walk. I didn't want to pick a song that was too short, and then be left walking down in silence.

    Thanks!

In the end I'm sooo glad I'm going prvate as I have heard that the resort is going to be busy. I did consider the beach reception, but my finace wasn't so hot on the idea of having sand everywhere. Also I decided to cut back and have a renewal of vows ceremony and am only paying 1/2 price for kids and empty seats since I only have 35 people total coming.
      Hi, I didn't get your pics would you mind sending them to lizgoncalves@charter.net instead? maybe they got blocked. Thanks a bunch!
      And congrats on your wedding, looks like it's today!!! CONGRATS!

      That's the other situation I have is I'm only going to have about 20 people..and right now it's looking like it might be even less...so I don't think I have the private wedding reception option. I decided to do the same thing with the getting renowal of the vows since it's a lot less...and it's probably easier and I won't have to worry about get blood tests done..finding my birth certificate..etc...

        I had the same question.....it took approx 2-3 mins for myself, 3 girls and my flower girl. We did a trial run the day before, just so that I could tell them where to start the music. We used "Somewhere over the rainbow" and there was plenty of time.

          We just got back from GSP early Sunday morning and what an AMAZING time we had. It was my total dream wedding come true. We went for a total of 10 days - WED to WED for my guests and an extra 3 for us. My guests all pretty much paid for jr suites, but all got upgraded to jr deluxe for free. We paid for the same but had also paid for the change to a Laguna Villa the day of our wedding - which they gave to us a day early. I absolutly loved this upgrade, we both did. The room was beautiful, private pool with beds, bar, concierge etc. However not so sure we would have taken full advantage of it if our guests had still been there.

          We also went with the Private Thai Beach for our reception.....another great choice. Although it is pricey and I was back and forth on it right up until the end. I am so glad we did it, what beautiful spot......totally worth it!

          Please let me know if you have any questions

            Hello everyone!

            I'm looking into this resort for our wedding in April 2011. Just have one concern really... I've read a lot on Trip Advisor about theft from the safes in the rooms.
            Just wondering if anyone experienced this, what was done about it, etc. Otherwise, this place seems to have everything we want!

            Look forward to hearing from you... Thanks!

              It's basically like every other resort. You have to be smart. Look at the safe; if it is scratched, or the labels peeled back, don't use it. Lock everything in your suitcases with your own locks, and you will be fine. I've heard of people accidentally leaving hundreds of dollars out, and nothing was taken.

              I'm getting married there in December, and so far have heard nothing but great things about the resort! :) If you would like some information I've received from the resort with wedding packages, cakes, flowers, the spa, just PM me with your email address and I can send you what I have.

              Happy planning!

                      Hi Liz.....(did you get the other pics that I sent you?) I brought my own photographer from home, she's a friend of mine and we are still waiting on the pics, if you remind me in a few weeks I can send them through. But picture a outdoor restaurant, all dark wood with thatched roof tops......large luminary type lights (that were turquoiseish) on the ground, tikki torches everwhere, right on the beach - beautiful beds and lounge chairs.....very pretty.

                      As for the music, we had an ipod all loaded up and read to go and when we got to the Thai Beach Club there was a dj already there that we didn't pay for! I even told Patricia that I didn't want one when she put it on my original contract. So I can't even be sure of the layout of outlets but I know they must have them cause what would the dj have used? No real need for a dance floor......since you're at a restaurant that has floor.

                      Hope that helps...let me know if you have any other questions

                      Jill :)
