    Omg!! I got my pics back from the photographer yesterday!! Absolutely ecstatic and could not be happier with them. Here is a link if u guys want to take a look at what se posted in Facebook : https://www.facebook...22013095&type=1 She had take about 3000 photos so I h e tons of shots from the Pisces that I will have to post when I get back home. I'm at work up north right now and the reception for Internet at my camps sucks. Thanks again to all of the brides or all of ur amazing help in planning my wedding. I'm hoping to be able to help a whole bunch of other brides as well!!!

    Hi! Your pictures are amazing! Who was the photograph you took and how much was her fees? Thanks!

      The info I got from resort says there are black outdates for free package. You can only get married from 10am and 1pm and not between Jan, march, and April.

          Hi Everyone!

           

          This thread has brought me so much piece of mind, you have no idea!  I spoke with my TA for the first time last week, and she recommended this resort right off the bat...and my FI and I weren't sure if she was just trying to sell the place, or if it really was a good resort for what we want.  From what I've read, it sounds like it'll fit the bill!

           

          I've been to two other destination weddings (one in Cuba and one in Mexico)...and I am loving the idea of having the ceremony in the gazebo (great way to avoid beach gwakers, I'm sure!) and am really interested in renting out the Picses to make our reception even more private. 
           

          I was wondering if anyone had pictures of the wedding bouquets and boutonnieres that the resort supplies?  I hear there is the basic bouquet and one that you can upgrade to?  Are they nice?  I'm kind of debating buying my own from etsy and bringing them with me...that way, they are exactly what I want, and can be a keep sake.  Plus, it looks like it would cost $40 (and up) extra for a bridesmaids bouquet and $22 (and up) extra for boutonnieres.  Seems a bit much to me, especially since I don't know if I will like them!!

           

          Past brides who have rented the Pisces out...do you really have to pay per head for guests still on top of the $1700?!  I thought that it included 150 guests?  And are the chair ties included if you spend the money for the Pisces?

           

          I am hoping to get married there some time in late November or early December...still waiting to hear back from my TA about package prices and hopefully a date will still be available!!!

            About the flowers... I was sent by the WC at the resort a "book" (pdf) of all the availble bouqets. There was almost 150 different ones to choose from, and I think the first 40 or so could be included in your wedding package price. I'm paying extra as I knew exactly what I wanted, and to my surprise they had it!! It may be silly, but paying extra for the flowers I always wanted wasn't even a question in my mind.

              Too bad we can't see what those choices are from afar!  But, I definitely see your point.  I just don't know if they will have what I want or not.  I am contemplating buying some silk ones that I like and then having them as keepsakes.  I really don't know if I should do that or just wait and hope for the best...

                Hi Ladies, I am having the free bouquet for my wedding, one of the Tropical Bouquets., They look beautiful. It Seems to be alot of money to upgrade, to roses, orchids etc when it's just H2B & me on the day. Then on our return, I am having my flower of choice for Our party. Has any past brides had their room upgraded? Anyone getting married in May 2013? Thanks

                  Has anyone booked any catamaran trips from the GBP?  I get married at noon so I thought I would take my guests on a catamaran cruise for the afternoon, perhaps to go snorkeling.  So much for hair and makeup!

                   

                  I have heard good things of Jamaican Watersports but they launch from Montego Bay and I don't want to shuttle my guests an hour there and an hour back.

                   

                  Or, does anyone have any ideas of how to fill an afternoon between a lunch time wedding and dinner?!

                    Do you still have the PDF of the flowers you can share?

                      MrsViolo - I have the pdf of the catalogue for the bridal bouquets available but it's too large and this forum won't let me upload it for you even though i've zipped the file.  If you send me your email address I can forward it to you. Sarah
