    Hi everyone,

     

    I am getting married at the GS on Nov 21, 2012 and am getting a little nervous as I have not had any contact with the wedding coordinator yet and they are not responding to my email.

    Does anyone have the contact info so I can make sure i've got the right email?

     

    Thanks a bunch:)

          Hi Sheena

           

          I actually got a response the next day lol.  I'm getting frustrated corresponding as there are many discrepancies between the two ladies emailing me. I had booked the time of the ceremony for 3pm....then one tells me its at 4pm and the other at 5pm....I'm hoping this gets resolved....

            Ya, that happened to me also! when they first contacted me to start the planning, they said it was at 4pm, when I had requested and they had previously approved 2pm! Since the sun sets at 5, my photographer suggested no later than three for lighting purposes, but I told them no, I need it at 2 pm, period! and they said okay. It's frustrating having to deal with multiple people giving multiple responses :( As these other ladies have said, I'm hoping that on the day of, everything comes together and all is good!! I'm getting pretty regular responses now, usually about a week between emails. Did you book through the resort on your own, or through a travel agent? I'm booked through Transat vacations.. There are all these extra costs for little things that are starting to add up, which is also very frustrating! Oh well, comes with the territory I guess ;)

              My last convo with Yenezia, in case any of this is helpful to anyone else....

               

               

              • Since our booking comes with the DJ, are we able to use his sounds equipment during the reception to do our speeches? And will he be fine to play songs from our Ipod for the first dances (Bride & Groom, Mother/Daughter, etc)? If we wanted him to just play a fixed setlist would this be an issue? We would actually be quite happy just having the sound system with an Ipod plug-in for the whole night and no DJ if we were able to exchange this? Yes you can do all of this, the DJ should be there because you have it included maybe just checking that everything works good and you can put your ipod or bring all the music in a memory stick and the DJ take care of that…opt to you
              •  
              • Is a projection screen available for doing a slideshow, and what would be the charge for that? Yes we have it and the price is $1,000.00 includes the projector
              •  
              • (If we cannot exchange for sound system) As the DJ is only for three hours, are we able to rent just sounds equipment for when he is done (to play from our own Ipod), and what would be the charge? We can’t modify the package so the DJ is included but for the other hours you can rent the sound system for $450.00
              •  
              • With the menu for the Palapa that you provided, am I correct in assuming that we will choose just one selection beforehand from each area to be served (IE we choose one soup, one entr©e etc), or do guests select on the day-of? You will select for them,
              •  
              • For our centerpieces at the reception, we are planning to bring vases from home, and I would like to purchase flowers from the resort to make arrangements with (my mother and aunt are both florists so they would like to make the arrangements). Is it possible to buy loose flowers from the resort? I know we could go to a florist in Playa but I suspect it would be less expensive to purchase from you, correct? We would be interested in hydrangeas, alstomalieas, lisanthus and casablances. Any idea on what sort of costs that would entail? Yes maybe send me a picture of the centerpiece and how many are they goig to do and I can check the price, ok?
              •  
              • Do we get to have the Tiffany Chairs since we have the Presidential package? Yes, the white ones
              •  
              • How many people can sit at one table at the Palapa Tables? 8, maximum 9 people
              •  
              • Are candles allowed in the palapa? yes

               

              If needed, am I able to ship a couple of boxes of supplies to you just before the wedding to hold on to for me? Do you have any suggestions of what brides typically do when bringing lots of decorations from home? To be honest Sarah, I don’t suggest to send anything, because sometimes on the customs service from the airport they keep all the stuff and you lose it or could open the box or arrive broken, so is much better if you bring it with you. The decoration depends on what you want?, which color are you going to use?, could be candles, stones, presents, candy’s, fans…or just buy it here and don’t come with boxes opt to you

                    This forum has been SO helpful and has led us to book the Grand Sirenis for August 2013! Anyone getting married here then?

                     

                    Anyone from the UK also going through Thomas Cook?

                      Hey Guys

                       

                      First I would like to say thank you to everyone on this forum, the info here is the best. I'm getting married on Nov 14th at the Palapa (my packagae didn't included this but we have 53 guest so we had to rented it) My question is on regards of the menu options the hotel is giving you. I received contradicting information and I would like to be sure.

                       

                      When you rented the Palapa do they asked you to pick one appetizer, one entre and one dessert only? or... Were you able to choose what every guest was going to eat? and Do they make you choose between the salad and the soup or both were included?
