Melania, I read that you've rented out a restaurant so that you can have a private reception. DId you say the Italian restaurant? How many guests are you having?
Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Brides??

There's 38 of us (so I think the restaurant is going to feel quite large, heh). You can rent out any of the restaurants, but I think the French ones costs a bit more. We're also having the DJ come into the restaurant after the dinner, so we'll have dancing in the same space... Hopefully it works out!!
Do you have a date set?

Melaina - I know a bride who did their dinner and dancing at the Mexican restaurant and had a dj and were very happy with it. I was also worried about it feeling a little big but she said it worked out well. I know the Blanca also quoted you $650 for the dj and that is what she quoted me recently but in one of her previous emails she said that its only $350 pesos an hour for the dj if you are having a three course meal, so something to ask her if you are having the three course dinner. My travel agent said that my package comes with a three course dinner so I am not sure why Blanca keeps quoting me $650.

No date set as of yet! It is between GS and Grand Palladium next door -- I hope to get the ball rolling within the next 3 weeks as we're going down to GS on Jan 21.
Right now GS is the heavy favourite... I've heard good things about GP, but from what I can tell, its quite expensive for large groups. In addition, I think it is more expensive than GS in general and I was hoping to keep guest costs to between 1000-1500 cdn per person for a week. I doubt GP can do this... (I know GS can because I've booked there twice and have been happy with what we paid).
I'm thinking ours would have to be at the Steakhouse or the Mexican because we are a large group... I won't lie though, I'll be doing headcounts in the restaurants when we go in a few weeks so see how many people can comfortably fit.
I'm sure yours will be great! More room for a dancefloor! Are they going to re-arrange tables for you?

Is any of you having a catholic ceremony. I've looked at their website and I didn't find any wedding package offering the catholic ceremony but they inaugurated a brand-new chapel in june 2010.

Hi, I am getting married at the Grand Sirenis Feb 15, 2011, and am having such a hard time getting an info out of Blance. I did not even know there was a powerpoint. Would you be able to send me teh pics you have of a previous wedding and the powerpoint. I am starting to get nervous. I was reading this thread of emails and you guys seem to have so many more details figured out...I would be so happy if you could send that to me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Success! Blanca has emailed me back and I'll be meeting with her in about one week's time! Thanks again for the contact email!
Amboue - I haven't heard anything about the Catholic ceremony besides the the brand new chapel. If Blanca mentions anything about it I'll let you know.

Kbodchill - When did Blanca email you back? She emailed me yesterday (January 16, 2011) saying she was no longer working at the Grand Sirenis and that there would be new wedding coordinators taking over.

The last email that I got from Blanca was Jan 12 and she didn't mention that she wasn't going to be the coordinator. We I guess this is why I save all the emails for all the stuff we have agreed on before.

Hey Christie and Corbeil, I just checked my email and I received a msg that she would no longer be a coordinator. This sounds pretty immediate. We had a meeting scheduled for this coming Sunday, the 23rd, but she gave me the name of a new coordinator... Hold on...
