Thanks for that link!  How long was the ceremony?  I'm hoping it won't be more than 20 minutes, so we can get some shots in before the sun sets.  Good to know about plan B in case it rains :) I'm sure our guests wouldn't mind being so close the the bar!  Ha ha.

Keep in mind for photos that the sun sets early (around 5:30, here's the link for you http://tinyurl.com/2amvteu) It rained on our day so they moved us from the gazebo to the side of the Sunset Lobby bar. Still worked our great as our guest could all get drinks (free) at the bar (before during and after the ceremony ; >). We had about 40 people.

 

We did the Fondu restaurant and everyone loved it. Ask for the chocolate fondue for dessert otherwise they will just give you dessert squares. Let me know if you have any there questions. And don't stress at all, everything will be awesome!

Our wedding is the 9th at GRP. How exciting. So have you decided on your flowers yet? Also, how many people are you having come? We're only having lik 15 so we are just doing the a la carte restaurant, not sure which one yet. Have you heard anything about the restaurants?

My suggestion is to use a professional photog.  A few reasons. 1- after the wedding, all you have is the pics.  You want them to be amazing for yourself and the people who couldn't make it...  2- If your friend with the good camera is paying to be there, should they be responsible for 'working' during your ceremony and reception, or just relaxing and enjoying time with everyone.  3- good camera or not, if you don't love the shots, it can cause some bitterness.  For example, at a friends wedding, the brides best friend was the 'official' photographer, but he had a few drinks and started just taking pics of girls he thought were hot!

 

Here are some of our shots from a photog on this website at the GSP

Hello,

My fiancee and I thinking of this resort for our wedding next spring.

We were there in October for a friends wedding and loved it. Although i love the gazebo, it is beautiful, i have always dreamed of being right on the sand getting married. did anyone here go this route? and if so do you have any photos to share? how much extra was it over the price of the wedding package?

 

thanks

Michelle

Hi Michelle!  We are getting married on the beach, and it doesn't cost extra.  However, if you want arches or anything like that, it does.  I've attached a pdf of the costs of the arches.  Here is a picture of the ceremony location on the beach.  I believe the chair sashes that come standard are white, it costs extra for different colours.

The beach location is right next to the gazebo and is very pretty.  Surrounded by palm trees and on a side of the beach that isn't too crowded with swimmers. 

I have some photos if you'd like to see them as well.  http://faberphotography.instaproofs.com/viewEvents.php?id=26995 Mexico wedding.  It was on the beach.  Very lovely.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
