I don't sorry :( and the kids club I think only goes 9-5pm. Unless that's what you meant but I do believe you can also pay for sitters. I'd ask the wedding department or send an email thru the GS website. I did that for some of the basic resort questions :)

Hello everyone, 

 

My name is Diana and I'd like to say that it's so wonderful to read about your experiences and be able to share knowledge in one place. 

 

My FI and I got legally married in Toronto and we're considering having our symbolic wedding at this resort. I'm a little worried about the size of the beach and I was wondering if any of you have seen volleyball nets set up (we're big into sports and I want to ensure that our guests have a good time). 

 

Thank you all!

 

Diana

Welcome and congrats.

 

There is definately a volleyball net set up. I don't have a picture of it but it's to the left of the main beach area. We had guests play all day, they loved it.

 

They also have volleyball nets in the pools and tonnes of activities.

 

There is also the sports room which I didn't spend time in but my kids played pool in there.

 

Lots of stuff to do!!!

This is wonderful news! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

 

I have seen some old posts regarding fees at the a-la-carte restaurants. Has anyone been in this situation: pay ~$35 to dine a-la-carte (unrelated to the wedding day)? 

 

One other thing..I was provided with the Private Events Menu and I was wondering if anyone picked this menu? Do you pick one appetizer, one soup, etc for all of your guests, and is the choice of Surf & Turf in addition to the main course selection?

 

The Presidential Package seems to charge us for the extra guests based on the menu we pick; however, there are other fees listed in the Private Events Menu for each person - would these be on top?

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, but if you haven't experienced this, don't sweat it - I'll e-mail Adriana.  

 

Thank you all!

No problem!

 

The only a la carte that isn't included in the all inclusive is the French one. It has a fee but most of the wedding packages include it for the bride and groom.

 

I honestly had the beach BBQ buffet for my wedding so not too too sure about the picking of items. Sorry.

 

What other fees are you speaking too? I didn't have the presidential package but had the palapa so I had to pay for everyone. If you package includes the 10 then what you pay over and above is the menu you choose per person. That includes everything - toast, appies, meal, cake, and booze for the length included in your package. To extend the reception you pay per person per hour for booze.

 

Things may have changed since January though. Hopefully the couple brides currently planning weddings there are jump in.

Thanks! That makes a lot of sense.

 

I'll let everyone know about the Private Events menu once Adriana responds to e-mail. 


I figured it out. :)

 

For all the brides-to-be out there...the fee quoted in the Presidential Package says "from 555 pesos per person for each extra guest if selecting Private Events Menu" ...meaning that in addition to the Presidential Package, if you choose the

- Surf & Turf with Salmon it's 555 pesos for each extra guest;

- Surf & Turf with Shrimp it's 715 pesos for each extra guest;

- Surf & Turf with Lobster it's 870 pesos for each extra guest

 

Hope that clarifies it for everyone.

I'm thinking of the chair ribbons - I'd like to get colorful ones and I was wondering ...have you ladies used the same ribbons from the Ceremony for the Reception, or did you have to pay again to be able to use them in the Reception?

No you only pay once. The chairs are physically moved from the beach to the palapa so it's the same chairs :)

 

Lying on my couch feeling ill today so it's nice to see your questions :)

    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!
