I have all the packages and private reception information which I have attached below.
I have also attached the salon price list. I am booking hair appointment for my bridesmaids and the moms. It is quite expensive for Mexico but I guess it is the goign price for Canada so I will not complain too much about that.

I have chosen the gala reception, which includes private room DJ and a set menu ( I am trying ot negotiate so that we can accomodate the vegetarians and those who do not like fish. They are very strict with the menus).

The gala option does not include a bar for alcohol that technically should already be included. They want an additional 15$ an hour per person to set up a domestic bar. I have told that it was not an option, I was just going to make my own bar, bring my own bottles. They still want to charge $15 a bottle for me to bring it into the room, which is fine, but they are really trying to get any penny out of you as they can.

My wedding coordinator Sandra has been good, she is responding quickly and trying to accomodate my requests as best she can. I don't have many of them but I am celiac so I have asked them for a gluten free cake and she is talking with the chef to see what they can do, which I really appreciate.

The beach option was really tempting but at US$85/person it seemed a bit much, especially if you then needed to pay more for a dance floor and DJ. (i think it would have amounted to an extra $2000.

I have chosen the Royalty package, mainly because it accomodates up to 40 people without additional charges. The others only accomodate up to 20 and hten charge an additional $12/person which can add up quicky. Plus I like to think of myself as Royal cheesy.gifelefant.gif

Let me know if you have other questions, I have asked a lot of them and got some answers.

Hope this helps.

I haven't heard back from the resort yet. Just trying to weigh out options because we aren't doing the private beach reception and Im not sure about the a la carte option because its only an hour and a half sad.gif Anyone else heard of the Thai Beach Club?
Hi, I am getting married April 7th and I will have about 30 guests. We are doing what is called a gala dinner and it only costs $37/person. It is in a private room with the DJ included, however, it does not come with a bar. Let me know if you would like more information, I have all the brochures with me.

hiii ladies.. im planning our wedding at the GRP as well, and im wanting to do the gala dinner as well. I like having it be a private reception. Its too bad about booze not bring included :(  How many hours do you get the gala dinner for? With the DJ are you giving him some of your own music to play as well?  I would love it if you could email me the brochures that you..that would be great!!      danisha229@hotmail.com

Hi Ladies! I am getting married at 3pm on April 8 2011! We were looking forward to the gazebo but are now going to have our ceremony on the beach bc the gazebo won't be available bc of the explosion.  Then we are having a private reception (we have about 55 guests) in the Thai Beach Restaurant.  It is the priciest for sure ($100/person) but we have stayed at the GSP before and absolutely loved the Thai Restaurant.  And from every other bride I have talked to who had their dinner here said it was worth every penny!  We get it from 6-10pm (but I have been told we can most likely stay until 11pm) This gives us enough time for dinner, speeches and plenty of dancing just with our group until we head off to the disco!  We were torn between doing the private beach reception and the cons I was told about that was bathrooms being public and far away,  if its windy sand can be blown onto the tables, and the dance floor is not included. Beach reception is $85/person. 

Hope this info helps!

    • 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!

    • 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.
