My daughter got married at GS on Monday the 18th and we did the Presidential package. It was wonderful and the wedding planner gave us the Presidential Suite for them. That room is georgous and they hosted a few get togethers in their room for the group the days leading up to the wedding, as they had a full bar that was re-stocked daily.
The spa did a great job with the hair and her make-up was awesome, then they let the mother of the groom and I do our own hair, and when we were running behind, the girl jumped in and finished mine (or she didn't like what I was doing ha ha). Anyway, in answer to Eylssa's question about hair and make-up - they did a great job. No need for back-up.
We had the wedding at the beach and the reception was a private one in the palapa right behind. It was decorated with the flowers from the alter on the main table and the chairs from the wedding site, with the white covers and bows. It looked awesome. They pick up all of your guest by cart totake them to the wedding site 30 min before the wedding time, then bring in the men of the wedding party, and then the bride and her group. The wedding co-ordinator stays with you to tell you when to walk up the aisle etc.
There was champagne and hordorves on the beach right after the ceremony, but not much of the food was even touched. That was included in the package we had.
The wedding planners stayed and when we realized that the bride and groom forgot to tell them the first songs they wanted and the DJ didn't have them, the two wedding planners left to download the songs and returned with them. They were still there when we left at 10:30 ish to make sure that people got on a cart to go where they wanted to go. They were very discrete but they were both there throughout the whole wedding.
I think it was the best wedding I have ever attended, and I heard that from a few guests as well. I would hightly recommend it.
