Grand Sunset Princess.. groom?

Recommended Posts

I hope there is room for a groom in here! I've been tasked with most of the planning as I have access to a computer during the day, and my fiance does not.

Grand Sunset Princess Resort

 

I just put the deposit down for the resort through our TA today! We haven't confirmed the wedding date with the resort yet, as I'm not sure if I'll actually go through the resort for it, or use a third party wedding planner. The third party option seems to be quite expensive, but I can't seem to get any answers from the resort! Wondering if anyone out there speaks spanish and wants to help me communicate! They seem to be good at returning my emails, but they never answer my questions as I don't think they speak very good english. All we want to do is get married on the beach, with a private reception dinner of some sort... pretty low key.

 

We don't want to use the gazebo though... does anyone out there know what those four post deals with the lace fabric attached to them are called? That's what we'd like to do... anyone else been able to accomplish this at this resort... any recommendations? I'm feeling very lost, and VERY out of my element!

Good luck planning!

Welcome to the forum! We always have room for Grooms to Be! How nice of you to help your fiance with the planning!

As mentioned earlier, the four post thing you are talking about would be a chuppa.

And it looks like it'll be one huge Best Destination Wedding Forum get together that week! Myself and TammyB will be there during that time, as will at least four other brides!! Hopefully we can all get together for a drink and a picture (you'll learn, us BDW ladies love our pictures!!!).

If you don't use the gazebo there are additional charges. We're doing the arch on the beach because it's a little less expensive then the other one. I think it's great that you are getting involved and doing the planning for your wedding. I have the prices and things for the different set-ups on the beach at home so I can send them to you tonight if you want. Just PM me your e-mail address or post it in here and I'll send you what I have. I originally booked everything with Damarys but she's no longer there. Diana is the new girl and maybe still getting used to everything because several people have said the communication hasn't been so good. I haven't had to deal with her except for a couple small questions so I can't really say first hand. I did see a review on tripadvisor.com or somewhere that said Diana was wonderful once they got to the resort. So just try your best to bare with her, everything should be great! We're getting married on November 14th so we'll see you there!
