    Oh my, I have about 60 guests coming for our wedding. My invitations went out last week and I have had about 20 RSVP'd. Can't wait to get my final numbers so I can continue to plan the rest of the details. I'm not too sure what we are going to do about the reception at this point. I'm nervous to have the reception outside due to the chance of rain at night. So far I am thinking a gala reception or the thai beach club (it's too bad they charge so much for it). 

     

    With regards to Mara, I have also found her very helpful. I haven't had any problems getting a hold of her by telephone and she usually emails back within a week or so. I just emailed her and asked her if she could provide me details regarding the ceremony and was wondering whether or not they could do cupcakes instead of a cake. 

     

    Going to look at rings today and hopefully order my bridesmaid dresses this week. I'm getting more and more excited as things start coming together.

      Hi kelsey,

      Thank you so much for posting your review!! I have been scoring the internet for weeks trying to find a review about some one who recently had a wedding at The Thai Beach Club reception at the Grand Sunset Princess so if you wouldn't mind, I would love to ask a couple questions about what you thought about it all! :) :)

      For some reason we can't find many pics of the Thai Beach Club so we don't really know what to expect.  Is it a large open air building so you had enough room for all 60 people + a dance floor?  I am concerned about wind/possibility of rain so I wanted to make sure there was a roof that could cover  us all if needed.  We fell in love with the idea of having a reception in a thatched roof building to get the beachy vibe, but also have those cool loungey pieces of furniture outside/inside the building where people could relax in style to enjoy cocktails by the water....but I had heard from another review that the lounge furniture is no longer there?  Did you notice that or doesn't it really not matter either way?

      I'm sure all of us GSP brides have heard about explosion that happened in November, :)  so I wanted to see if that impacted your experience in any way.  I thought I had read that the explosion happened near the Thai Beach Club so it made me nervous that there could be a construction zone right by our wedding. eeek!

      Thank you again soooo much for your input and congratulations again on your wedding!! :D

              I was at a wedding Feb 2011 at the Grand Sunset Princess. They had about 55 people. They had a private reception on the beach and it was amazing! Sand in your toes with palm trees lit up all around you!

                  I've sent our details and scanned copies of our passports to beautyweddings, and they have e-mailed me back to say they have everything they need, but they haven't asked for our birth certificates?  What legal documentation do we need to take with us as we are having a legal ceremony and we are from the UK.

                   

                  Also thinking of having our wedding meal at the La Vaqueria  has anyone on here eaten at this a la carte is so what did you think???? Thanks x

                    I haven't heard anything from beautyweddings. Did they contact you? I am feeling like I am very out of touch with the details. 

                     

                    Vancity Bride - who are you using for your flowers and decor? Is it expensive?

                     

                    Thanks xx
