    Hi,

    I am getting married on January 19th at the Riviera side and the new coordinator Mara has been in close contact with me. So far she was wonderful and has great reviews from the bride who was married just 2 weeks ago.

    It was slow start with communication for me as well. I called twice and after that it has improved greatly.

    Try calling if you want to speed the process.

     

    Good luck!

        Hey CCM

        I have finally heard back from the wedding coordinator at GSP via email - Alejandra Hernandez ; I 

        I just hope that she has all of the details that I provided to Sandra...is that who you were using before? 

        I will assume that all will fall into place - so cool that you're getting married the next day and are from the Durham region!!

        Can't wait...as I find things out from her, I will post and keep you in the loop - would love feedback from you too

        All the best!

        Denise

            Hey Agirolamo,

            My fiance and I will be at the GSP from Feb. 2-18 with our ceremony on the 7th.  What are you doing for photos?  We are getting married in the gazebo and just doing an a la carte for dinner.  25ish people- low key wedding, so not really too worried about a reception.  We're going to be pretty laid back.  Talk soon!

            AlbertaCarrie - Im going to GSP in February too... when are you going to be there? When is the wedding date? I'll be there from the 10th - 17th and the wedding is on Monday. Maybe we can join forces and take over the resort.. lol

             

            Where is everyone getting hitched? Did you chose the beach cermony? or the gazebo? I think we're doing the gazebo....

            Also, my fiance and I are debating where to have our reception.... we have 40ppl coming and not wanting to spend the extra for a beach reception; however I would LOVE TOO! But going to an all-inclusive, its kinda of silly to pay 'extra'... mine as well get married here in town.

             

            any suggestions??

              Hi AlbertaCarrie,

               

              Thats awesome. We'll be at the GSP during the same time as you! Our wedding in on the 14th of Feb, but we're there from the 10-17!!

              We have about 36 ppl with us.  Im guessing that we'll end up doing an a la carte restaurant also... then partying it up at the disco or something. The only thing is my fiance and I wanted to do first dance, and speeches, and stuff... but I guess we'll just improve it during dinner.

              As for Photographer... we're actually bring one with us from Toronto.  She specializes in destination weddings where she'll travel with you and take pics throughout the week! Its expensive, but that was my wedding present. Im obsessed with pictures.. lol

              The only reason I didnt want to use a photographer there is because you pay roughly the same amount and only get them for an hour... and then pay extra for pics. A girlfriend of mine did that at Los Cabos... GREAT pics, but expensive for an hour.....

              Good luck. PS. If your not doing anything on the 14th... haha,... you can party with us for our wedding!!! Ciao for now

                Does anyone have any Gala Receptions information. I am still trying to narrow down my reception options. I was also wondering how far in advance you asked for your RSVP's so you knew how many people you were expecting. The numbers are going to obviously determine where we hold our reception as well. Does the Beach Reception include a dance floor or is that seperate? And do you think that it it necessary as I can imagine they could make room to dance on the sand.

                 

                Any info from you is helpful because I am also having a hard time getting answers from the wedding coordinators.

                 

                Thanks again and congrats to all you upcoming brides.

                  Agirolamo,

                  Sounds like you're going to have an awesome wedding!  I am a professional photographer myself so probably even more picky when it comes to photos ;)  I'm sooo lucky to have business partners, one of which is able to join me and photograph my wedding- thank goodness because I don't really trust anyone else.  I might just have to spy on your wedding... hahaha. We should meet for a drink or something. Cheers!

                   

                  ChristaMichelle,

                  I don't have any of the info you're requesting, but I do have a suggestion for getting a response from the new coordinators.  I was having the most frustrating time emailing with no responses for weeks... so finally I titled my email "URGENT" and got a response within 12 hours.  Hope that helps!

                    Hey ChristaMichelle,

                    If you have an email address, I can send you all the info Mara sent me in regards to the Gala Recepetions, and choices of food... and even the Thai Beach Reception, or Private Beach Reception.... I can just forward you the email... let me know.

                     

                    The RSVP's were a big deal only because if your travelling with the group, the travel agent needs to know how many ppl they're booking (deals and such) I sent mine out a whole year in advance only because I wanted to give ppl enough time to save; and try and make it.  I sent out invites on Valentines Day (since that is when we're getting married) and asked for them back by April/May.. gave lots of time.  The deposits for the trip were due end of May in order to get the awesome deal we did... honestly, it depends on when your wanting to book the trip (to get the best rate) and figuring enough time to get responses, and desposits! That is the key... You'll find that is the most difficult thing to do, ppl committing and booking a trip for 30+ ppl! (or however many ppl you invited)

                     

                    The Beach Reception is the only one that get a dance floor; or so Ive heard.  But like you said, you can just make room !!

                     

                    ps. Be very persistant with the WC... they prolly have lots to deal with, but the more you write them, the quicker they are at getting back to you.  If you have anymore questions, dont hesitate.  Send me your email so I can give you the documents on everything you need to know...

                    just in case, mine is

                      Hey AlbertaCarrie,

                       

                      Indeed we should! Feel free to join the party... the more the merrier!  We'll be there sharing the week with you and your husband; since you'd already be married by then! I should meet up with you before hand so you can give me some tips for my day..... lol

                      Wow, and here I thought I was the only picky person when it comes to pictures! haha, we have something in common. It must be worse for you since your a photographer! I love pics so much that I do it as a hobbie myself..... help out with a friend of mine with his business. Fun stuff!

                       

                      ChristaMichelle - I agree with AlbertaCarrie... mark it URGENT and things should happen for ya! Good luck.
