Hi all *waves*

Ive been lurking for some time but have finally booked our holiday to Grand Sirenis and currently waiting for a reply regarding our chosen wedding date. We have chosen the 13th October 2018 ...sooooo far away but plenty of time to save. 23 of us have so far booked the holiday.

We are wanting the presidential package and originally booked this through Thomson. I have since cancelled with Thomson after realising they are £1000's dearer for exactly the same package!!!

Ive loved catching up with everyones stories on this thread and hope to keep in touch over the next 18 months xx

Hi could any uk brides give me some prices on packages please :) still waiting on hotel and I'm keen to know if this is do able. I'm enquiring for a friend after planning my own abroad wedding 2 years ago she's asked my help.

Hello Everyone! I can not believe how fast the wedding is coming up. I am 145 days away until the wedding day and we are trying to complete and lock down all of our choices very soon, so I have some questions for some past GS brides.

 

1. We are booked to have the ceremony on the beach and the dinner and reception in the palapa. However, we have 98 guests booked and we may have some more booking more towards the wedding date. I know the resort only allows 100 guests in the Palapa for dinner. Has anyone had just the dinner on the beach and dancing in the palapa?

 

2. As for ceremony and reception music. Did you tell the resort what music and exact songs you wanted or did you bring the actual songs with you on a usb drive or something to give to the DJ?

 

3. For any past brides who did a sit down Private Dining menu in the Palapa (non-bbq) what choices did you go with and how was it? 

 

4. I am wanting to get my hair and makeup done at the spa along with my bridesmaids. Would you past brides recommend getting the makeup done there? Did it stay on great in the humidity and did you bring a picture of a look you wanted? 

 

5. For those bride who brought some decorations and things for the wedding with them, how did you get everything there? Did you ship things or pack them in suitcases? We have a lot to bring. We are giving all of our guests Big Bubba cups (we use these at the pool and beach every time we vacation to Grand Sirenis because it keeps the drinks cold and you do not have to go up to the bar as much), We are also bringing maracas so everyone can shake for a kiss instead of tapping on the glass, we are also bringing fun light up sticks for our guests to dance with. We made some of our own decorations for the Tiki Torches that will be placed down the aisle and I think we are choosing to bring some of our own table decorations. (We can find the glass vases for a dollar where the resort is charging us a lot more for each vase). 

6. My colors for the wedding are different shades of blue with some accents of purple. I am having a difficult time trying to choose the flowers for my wedding. Unfortunately the flowers I want (blue and purple orchids) are at an additional cost and super super expensive. I am getting them for my bouquet (I will attach photo) but I need to choose different flowers for my bridesmaids bouquets and groomsmen boutonnieres. Did anyone have flowers dyed other than roses? I am thinking about asking them to dye pink lilies or stargazers to try and get the blue and purple effect. Here is the bouquet I am asking for :)

Thank you in advanced to anyone who can help :) We have been in the talks with Rodrigo who has done a great job with responding to us. I can't wait for this dream wedding to come to life!

    • 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!
