Hopefully you brides that are getting married there soon will post a wonderful review and tons of pics to help future brides that plan to get married there.
Do I phone Beverly direct for packages I have sent an email, but that was a few weeks ago. ??

So like I said, we are all booked and paid. All that is left to do is select the venue when we arrive and the flowers. So excited!!!
Oh and if you look on Trip Advisor there is a post from someone that just got married there too and they are giving it rave reviews so that makes me feel better!
Good luck to you all...

I noticed your looking for bridesmaids dresses...you can check these out. I'm ordering these in Aqua. I like how simple they are and it includes a shawl and straps. Oh cant forget the bow on the size and it's only 50 bucks, when you order total is 60 bucks! Check it out. Prom Store - 50's Strapless Satin Formal Bridesmaid Prom Dress Holiday Gown my girls love it!! Plus its one of those dresses that fits everyones body shape! I really hope you post pics when you come back, like I said before I'm getting married there in May. Oh and my desposit money is still sitting in my account as well but Beverly has been very helpful with everything! She is wonderful! :-)

thank you so much for sharing that info with us...
so did you pay the $2500 for the private reception? and what package did you chose? did you have to pay a certain amount per additional guest?

Yes we paid the $2,500 extra but it was totally worth it! We had the Blissful Love pkg, we also had 50 guests with us. So the first 35 were included then the children were all free and then we paid the $40us over for the rest of the people, I think about 11 extra people in total. My actual bill including the steel drum band and flowers for all the girls and guys and my dad was just over $5000 which to me was a fantastic deal!
When is your big day? Is it at the Gran Bahia? If so you are in for a treat!

did beverly say something about the fact that you brought your own photographer?
did you get your wedding pics done already? maybe you can post some here... that would be great

We really don't have a lot of $$$ in our budget for photos...and although we aren't super picky about photos...we've seen some scary resort photography.
We are thinking of contacting the photographer you used... maybe the prices will be reasonable.!! How did your photos turn out?? Were you really impressed? Did you end up taking any of the "free" photos offered by the resort photographer (if it was part of your package, that is) and if so, how did those turn out??
I would really love to hear any advice you may have!!!

we did bring our own photographer...his name was Mike Gibson, his wife Amanda was my hair and make-up artist too. They were amazing. GPP - Toronto Wedding Photographer, GTA Wedding Photography that is his web site. We got a great deal with them both as a package. If you only want him however he is really good. We have not seen the professional ones yet actually, but the photo's on his web-site are great so we aren't worried. Beverly had no problem with us using our own, we told her in advance. We got a discount on the steel drum band for the wedding as we didn't use the resort photographer and he was "included" in the package price, so you could upgrade something else I'm sure if you want to use your own guy. HIs prices were very reasonable compared to some of the others out there. So contact him and tell him Julie and Tim Sedore sent you...he's great! I will post some pics as soon as I get them. And as soon as I figure out how. LOL
Good luck ladies!!!
