Yeah they were!  I didn't know that until I called my parents to tell them the date changed.  And whats even weirder is my FI and I were engaged December 14 and thats the very same day my grandparents were engaged and we didn't know that either!

      Welcome Kristy28!  You definitely made the right choice, GBP is going to be an amazing place to get married at (esp since you are a 2012 bride who gets the new prices! haha!)  Let us know if you have any major  questions...everyone is super helpful and this forum is going to be a life saver for you!



      That is amazing, definitely nothing to worry about with the date...it was meant to be!! :)

        Hi Lsmith,

         

        What day are you fying out again? We arrive on the 2nd and get married on the 7th. Did you book your restaurant already?

          I also have been thiking about renting the gazebo witha DJ for 500 but I also thought about buying my own ipod and docking station and getting someone to monitor it for us. I was wandering if the gazebo rental is two hours like the dj or all night? Canyou let me know what quote she gives you for alcohol when you get it I would really appreciate it.

          Anyone else renting the gazebo with their own music and liquor?

          I'm so confused now.  I understood that since they have to set up the speaker system for the ceremony they simply leave it for the evening.

          I asked her about our own liquor and she said we could get our own from them.  Then I asked her again just in case and she said no.  So I sent her another email back and she said ok and to give her a list of what we wanted so that she could find out the prices for me as they had to be ordered from elsewhere????

            I leave March 31 and take the red eye to Toronto, so we get to the resort on Apr 1 -  and get married on the 5th!!  So excited!!  Haven't booked a restaurant yet - I kinda want to see them and see how they're laid out before I decide...  assuming we get to decide, that is!

             

            So, we're gonna be there at the same time!

              It is still only 2 hours for the gazebo regardless of dj.  I have not asked for a quote on the liquor because I don't know what I should ask for.  There are only 19 of us and a few don't even drink.

              When is your wedding date?

                I agree!!! Just Enjoy the Day.. PLUS you will be in a country that doesn't believe Friday 13th is anything special!

                    No - it's the actual wedding package prices at the resort that are going down for 2012 weddings - instead of $1100 for the sunshine package, it will be $400 in 2012, for example...
