If you are paying for a  private reception, you don't need to buy guest passes for any of your events.  We did our welcome dinner at the hibachi at Beaches 2 nights before, i booked that myself one week before and had it there so everyone could attend without a problem.  we did not have to pay for guest passes at the bonfire the night before or the day of the wedding.  that was my biggest concern because half of my guests were at the suites. but with the 2012 rules, guest passes are included in private reception price.  the DJ on bonfire night was $250 an hour, we did 2 hours and he was well worth it.

Hey Ladies! 

I got married at the Grand on Oct 6th... it was awesome! 

 

I used Misha Earle for my photographer- her work is fabulous & she's a great person too!


Raschel Edwards- for my makeup- Her work in my opinion is the best & she's super sharp & sweet

 

Ravon Rhoden- best part of my trip was him & his band!  Even sources from the hotel said he is the best on the island.  He's super fun to work with too!!  We hired him to do the meet & greet the night before the wedding!

 

I hired the hotel to do my hair and they were great too!  If I could do it over I'd prbly hire Raschel and her team to do it b/c it would make my life easier & with them I wouldn't need a trial :)

 

There are A LOT of weddings at the Grand- out of the 8 days I was there I think there were 6 weddings.  Everything is planned pretty much a couple weeks before the wedding.  The wedding consultants are really great once you are there- as soon as I arrived they were there for me.  Rev. Gordon was great too during the ceremony- he has done over 15k weddings- he does a couple a day sometimes.  It's a fun ceremony- not a cry fest or anything which is soooo nice. 

 

I hired the hotel to do my hair and they were great too!  If I could do it over I'd prbly hire Raschel and her team to do it b/c it would make my life easier & with them I wouldn't need a trial :)

 

Obviously nothing really ran completely smooth- but I really didn't care when I was there.  Like the front desk told my grandmom and aunt the wrong time for the cocktail hour so they missed it- but honestly I was having so much fun dancing in my own world that I really didn't care lol.  Not enough spa appts were made- no problem mon- i really didn't care- i was in paradise.  :)

 

Once I walked over the the Suites I may have stayed 10 mins and walked back- then i visited the beaches and seriously found it disgusting- i'd rather stay home then go there- people were actually snorting some white powder in the lobby... it was like a mcdonalds but grosser lol.  SOOOOO highly recommend staying at the grand for sure!!!

Yes and if you have over 30people. Atleast those are the terms on paper. If you're lucky they may let you slide. But the bonfire is def a good time!!!

We're booked for Dec 2013, and just after booking the prices changed.  They appear to have slightly changed their business model, so particular items went up other went down.  It stayed fairly similar for me but it's a little troublesome how they feel free to change on a whim, who knows what it will be when it is actually time to pay.  Haven't signed anything yet.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
