Hey ladies,

I just wanted to pass this on as a heads up kind of thing.  I know it can happen at any resort but the fact that it is at our chosen one has me a little shaken.

Yes I think it is prudent to be aware of your safety at any resort. Unfortunately the media can put a spin on anything.  That being said the flooring in the lobby bars and at the theater are extremely slippery the moment they get wet and are a fall hazard.

Hi ladies,

 

Happy new year! Haven't been on since 2013, I even had to reset my password - oops! Just wanted to say, I sent all booking paperwork off to GS this week so feeling very excited (haven't had confirmation yet though.) Is anyone else getting married in Dec this year??? Or just this year for that matter! It would be nice if someone else was :)

Everyone, feel free to share your big day plans - I love reading them all and picking up lots of ideas. Colour schemes, dresses, food and cake ideas (yum).

Happy planning, Hayley xxx

Hi everyone

 

I have just discovered this forum and I am looking to get married at the Grand Sirenis in December 2014. I have been here a few years ago and loved it.

I am looking at booking the platinum package through Thomsons at the moment but understand from the posts that you may be able to book direct for a better deal. Could somebody please message me any details of packages they have. I can provide my email address if that is easier (I am not familiar with the site so not sure how this all works).

 

Any information or tips are very welcomed.

 

If anyone knows anything about the chapel too I would appreciate it. I read that this is for Catholic weddings only - Me and my partner are Catholic and attend church regularly. Although we aren't set on having to have a Catholic ceremony, it would be nice to know the options.

 

Thanks

Joanne and Heather,

Congrats on your big days! I have had my confirmation now and our date is 10th Dec. Heather we might cross paths in December so that's very exciting! We arrive on the 1st and we are staying for 2 weeks, booked through Thomson also. We have also been to GS a few years ago with Thomas Cook and absolutely loved this hotel. I can see why people return time and time again.

Although we have booked our trip through Thomson, we have actually booked our wedding direct with GS. Party because it was cheaper this way and partly to cut out the middle man so to speak in terms of the actual organising of the day. Maria at the hotel has been great and we have confirmed all of our details about the day already to the last flower and song (got a bit carried away with the organising!!). If you need me to send you any of the paperwork or Maria's email, just message me your email addresses and I will forward everything I have.

We have opted for the symbolic ceremony because we a doing the legal bit in the UK before we travel. But if you do opt for the chapel, it looks gorgeous!

Otherwise, dress has arrived, headpiece has arrived and ring picked out so I'm super excited :) Just need to drop a few pounds for the bikini now! (Bloody hard this time of year!)

Let me know if you need anything xx

Hi ladies,

 

Can't believe I am getting married in 37 days.......ahhhhhhhh!!!! Just in the final stages of planning everything now.  I am wondering if any of the Canadian brides mailed things down before hand or if you just brought everything on the plane with you??? I have a box that I want to send down earlier but Canada Post is outrageous.  Wondering if anyone has any suggestion or if I should just bring it on the plane with me.

We are getting married there in 23 days.  I was advised by a couple people at the resort not to mail things as they will take months (up to 6) to get there.  I'm just going to strategically pack and pay for extra baggage if necessary,

Hello! 

 

My husband and I took our extra stuff down to the Grand Sirenis in large storage containers. WestJet only charged us $20 per container which I thought was reasonable. 

 

Happy wedding planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
