Eeek!! why isn't she asking me for a deposit? i WANT to give a deposit. hahahah

i totally agreee Chrissi that i'm a little uneasy about not having a deposit down. although i do have email confirmation that our dates and times are booked.

 

I'm so excited to see other people here getting married at GBP! now if only we could find some brides who got married there already!

 

and chrissi thanks for the email addy, i'm going to email her about the room rates and she what she says, probably nothing, but worth a shot. plus i need a map of the hotel grounds as we are doing an Amazing race event on our 2nd day there. yippeee!

 

tim-juleswed, i'm excited you are booking the private room! that is awesome. i considered it but not sure i want to spend the extra moola. but do you get to have your dance and everything in there? maybe i'll wait until i get there to see what hte room looks like and then decide. i'm trying to spend as little as possible so we have more for our honeymoon! heheh

Kerrij - Yes the private function includes a DJ and dancing and a mic for speeches. So to us it was worth the extra money. I was planning on spending about $5k on the wedding and this will come in just under that. Having the first dance and everything was important to us. So we will get married in the Gazebo then pictues and then the private reception at about 5:30 till midnight. Not sure where the reception is, she mentioned I got to pick the place, so I'm guessing we do that when we arrive.

Thanks so much Ladies!

 

I sent off an email to Beverly (I'm in Canada) to see if my date is available and to get the packages. I guess I'll do some research on trip advisor now!

Hey all,

 

so it's been two weeks since I have last heard from Beverly and I'm freaking out. My wedding is in 4 months but I have questions for her and she won't get back to me!! sad.gif She also asked for a deposit and hasn't been heard form since I am a bit relunctant to send my credit card info through the fax if I don't know she is there to get it...Has anyone heard from her latelyhuh.gif My friend that got married in the DR a few years ago said the turn over rate for the onsite Wedding Planners is big and I'm wondering if she simply doesn't work there anymore.

 

Please if anyone has heard from her let me know. Or if anyone else is having a problem tracking her down also let me know...starting to stress!

 

Thanks all!

Hey Chrissy,

 

yes I did hear from her eventually and I sent my card info over. She hasn't yet taken the money from me either but in due time. If you still can't find her I suggest giving her a call. She is still there but perhaps jsut really busy this time if year. I'm not sure. As I said I got a reply back from her and then faxed my CC info and she e-mailed me to say she got it. Fingers crossed everything works out...keep trying and you should hear soon.

 

Keep me posted on how you are doing with her and the planning.

oh thank you so much for your answer. I am really relieved now... yeah probably you are right, it is the high season at the moment so she could just be busy... I will just wait, it is still a year for our wedding from now, so there is no rush... just weird that they dont want our money :-D normally this is the first thing companies take :-)

 

so how many of your guests have booked their rooms yet? I will be so excited to see the first person booking... cant wait...

 

so have fun with the further planning.. wish you a great week

Hi Ladies!!! I am sooo excited to see there is a thread on GBP.... I am still undecided on where I'm going to book my wedding. It's between Iberostar Rose Hall Suites or GBP.... My travel agent gave me a really good price for GBP- for five night with air it comes to 1014.00 per person... Iberostar is 1450.00 for five nights.. I am just a little nervous about GBP because there are not many reviews or pictures about the weddings here. I think that I would also pay more so I can have the private reception as well.. I must admit I do feel extremely better now that I stumbled upon this thread.. I think I will contact Beverly to see if my date is available... Thanks for all the valuable info that everyone has provided so far... Please keep posting info... If I find out anything I will let everyone know. Also I have been looking for photographers and Sun Gold seems to do wonderful work. I know there is a thread for this photographer so you guys should check it out... Happy planning!

 

Jo

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
