Hello, my name is Jessica and I am getting married at the GRP resort December 3 2010. I am looking for information about photographers in the area or even looking for someone that may want to split the cost of one if someone has around the same wedding date as myself. Well thanks for your time.

Hi Kristy and Lauren!

We have decided on the Thai restaraunt reception and just the Infinity wedding package since we will be getting married in Canada first.  I also got "playaweddings" to be my photographers! I sent out my save the dates in May how soon should I send out the actual invitations and do I still send one to the ppl I know will not be able to make it?

Hey Lauren,

We're getting married at 5pm, and after that I don't really have anything planned yet. I know I don't want to do the beach reception or anything too planned or formal. I just don't know where to have the reception dinner and what the options are for what I want. I have my invitations done and pretty much sent out. I ordered some really cute ones from Vista Print and was happy with what I got. I'll definitely be using them again for my AHR details.

I'm counting down the days, too! It seems so far away right now but I know the time will fly. I was trying on wedding dresses yesterday and they were telling me that I would need to be ordering by October! I'm feeling a little stressed about that! Do you have a dress?

Hello Ladies,

 

I recently got married at GRP this past July 1st and would love to share my information as this website was extremely helpful for me.  I will be posting a full review of the resort and wedding day in the review section...not sure exactally where but I will find out.  As for photographers, i did a tonne of research as photo and video were most important to me.  In the end I ended up choosing a member of Claudia Rodriguez's team- Citlalli Rico.  Her main website page is http://www.claudiaphoto.com/photo/ and if you would like to see my photos here is a link to my slideshow: http://citlallirico.myshowit.com/_shellybartek/index.html.  I did initially try to book Claudia but she was booked at that time so i went with another one of her teammates.  Citlalli was amazing!!!  My video was also incredible...done by Claudias husband Mike.  Email me if you would like to see the video, but Claudia can also send you a link to his website to see his work. 

 

As for the resort, everything was good, rehersal dinner at la fondue was amazing...best dinner of the week and we tried almost all a la cartes...definitely a great experience, one our familes wont forget. 

 

For the wedding as you can see from the photos we went with the private beach party and this was worth every penny.  The only think i wish i could have done was tried to pay a bit more for an additional hour of dancing on the beach but had too much wine and forgot to ask for this the day off.  Another thing to remember is although the sun sets later on...it sets quickly so try and get everything done before that happens. 

 

If you have any further questions feel free to email me through the site.  Enjoy!!

Thank you SO much for posting your pictures!  You don't understand how excited I get when I see new ones!  :)

 

Congratulations, you looked stunning, and the wedding looked amazing! 

 

Did you bring your own cake?  It doesn't look like any of the options I have seen...

Your wedding was beautiful! Thanks for sharing the pics!

Our wedding is 4/1/11 at GRP, so we are still finalizing details. I do have a few questions...

1. did you use the resorts flowers and cake? they were beautiful, and as mentioned above, I don't remember seeing those options

2. how was the music when you walked down the aisle? who controlled it?

3. how was the dj at the reception? I was hoping we could just load up an ipod, but am told this is not an option. they said the dj comes with the sound equipment

 

I appreciate your help!

Amanda

Beautiful wedding!  Congrats to you and your husband.  Seeing pictures and your review gets me even more excited. We leave in a week!  And we are having our reception dinner at the fondue restaurant.  There are only 20 of us.  Do you think it wil be fairly private there? 

I love your flower too!!!.  Did the resort provide those or did you bring your own?  Very nice wedding.

Angela

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!  
    • Visit Jamaica and check out Montego Bay Photographer for your family vacation or Destination Wedding photography!!! https://www.montegobayphotographer.com
    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
