      It was actually 3 tables. And we made place cards for each person but actually forgot them at home!

          Thanks Jenny. So is the food price included in the package (Tropical, Romance etc) or is there a per plate fee? Sorry for being so daft!

            The food is included in your package price (+ anyone over the count of . The only time you would have to pay additional is if you choose to upgrade to the lobster. We did not upgrade, and were not dissapointed in our entrees or service.

            Place cards:
            I found it easier to just have the place cards set up on the table then to have people have to find there seats.

            God reference:
            We had the same minister, VIncent Mackenzie. We also had a civil ceremony and did not ask to not have god mentioned. Civil ceremony just means its a legal ceremony, it is still performed by a Minister! He is a minister after all, so there will be references to god unless you ask for there not to be. The mentions were minimal. We are not religions, but not one complaint about the service.

            Jascynthia and her assistant, Suzan:

            Sorry, but I feel the need to defend them. I met with both, first Suzan and then Jascynthia. Both were extremely helpful and very nice. To say otherwise is ridiculous.

            Ipod during the reception:

            The way to go. We set up playlist before we left for things like first dances, cake cutting, dinner music and then just let them play. Worked perfect. Steel drum band is definitely the way to go during the ceremony!

              I'm glad that they were nice and helpful for your wedding, maybe they were just having an off day with me and hopefully everyone else will get the same level of service that you did! :)

                Thanks girls for all the info!! Everyone here is awesome. So I've got dates confirmed for GPJ and ROR and am trying to decide b/w the 2. They were very quick in getting back to me that i could have a wedding there, but my trouble is I'm having a hard time getting any info pack on if I can have certain wedding locations and reception sites. Like I would like to have a private recp at either place but no word back...ugh. Any tricks of the trade to get them to respond?

                  Hey, you can for sure have a private reception at the GP, the trick is the keep emailing and maybe suggest your are deciding between them and another venue and then seeing they want the business it may trigger them to respond!! Hope that helps!

                      There is a lot of beach at this resort. Parts are very rocky and beautiful, but the rest is great for swimming. Sunset cove beach is the biggest and has all the water sports and doesn't have any rocky areas. We dragged along water shoes based on reviews, but all they did was take up space in our luggage.
