Hello !!  I have never been before. Im really excited but as a Bride its stressful to not know details that I wish I had some answers to.  I want the ceremony out on the private beach near the Ruin and I believe im renting the Palapa for a private reception. I have asked them to send me some pictures so I can have an idea of what to expect but I haven't seen much :( 

Have you been there before ? 

Thank you for chatting with me, i feel like im on a really old site bc all the GS Brides are no where to be found lol

From what I got from the wedding coordinator Araceli, the beach is by the ruin is rather public, there is a different one that is more private.  And actually there are still quite a few brides on here.  A couple just got married there in the last couple months so you might want to read back abit as there is a lot of helpful info in the thread.  Happy planning.

No problem Michelle! :)  Sometimes I go while between replies myself  just because I personally find that sometimes I get a bit foum addicted and need a few days off, lol. I think some of the others on the forum feel that way too :D

 

The resort is great! I've been twice already! It's not perfect of course, but no resort is. Like Denita said, the best thing to do is to start at the beginning and read through the whole thread, you'll find lots of good info, and most of it is fairly recent! (the past few months really!)

Hey Everyone,

 

How did I just stumble across this forum now? I am getting married at the GS in just a few weeks (April 28, 2011) and didn't find this until now! LOL

 

Anyways I was just wondering if anyone has some last minute advise? Is there anything that anybody would have changed or something that just made the day perfect?

My biggest advise would be to bring all of your correspondence from the coordinator and photographer. This helped me a lot and there was no question what was included. You will have a wonderful time; we had a wonderful wedding.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
