        Apolloniacreed,

        Thanks so much for posting the detailed price list. However, I've decided to switch and have my wedding at the Royal Cancun in Mexico instead. Happy planning with your wedding and all the GPLH brides. =)

            @Honeylime,

             

            I am in the process of planning our wedding at the GPLH for April 25th 2012! Just 2 days after you! I am so excited! I have soooo many questions about what to do after the ceremony/before the wedding, what to do for decorations, whether it's worth paying so much extra to rent the blue lagoon?

             

            I do know however that most vendors and photographers are willing to negotiate prices. I was able to get our photographer for 4 hours for $900. Originally the price was $1600 so it doesn't hurt to negotiate! They want your business!

              Ran across this old thread and saw your price for photographer. Now that you have had your wedding, did you like your results? Who was your photographer?
