Lol

          Does the hotel include the chair covers for free? They are listed in the prices as $5 per chair cover!

            Apparently the wooden white or golden ones I've seen in pictures or extra $$$. So you're either getting the banquet chairs with the white chair covers for free. Or you can pay to add the colour sash (or bring your own) or you can pay for the "upgraded chairs". I'm not sure how much the ungraded chairs are.

              Well I didn't have to pay but maybe it depends on the wedding package you pay for! I took my own chair sashes otherwise I would have had to pay for them.

                Hey!!!
                I am so excited to be getting married at the GBP next apr 2014!!!!!!! :)
                I've got the gazebo for my wedding and I have seen amazing photos and heard great things about it!!

                I am just trying to piece all the costs together!! I am thinking we will probably have about 30 ish people at our wedding!!

                Is anyone on here an already married at GBP bride?? I am just curious how much in total you spent on your wedding ( actual costs at the resort - and did you get any of the private receptions etc and pay for hair/ photography )

                I REALLY want to bring my photographer from back home - but she charges travel/stay for her and her assistant, and then a $560 charge, and then the resort charges that $800 fee!!! So it would be over $5000 for my own photographer!!

                I've seen posts about Chris Lee??? Is he at the resort still?? If i HAVE to go with someone from the resort, I'd at least like to know who to ask for :)

                I am rying to keep costs down, but want a semi private reception, and a dance :) And maybe steel drums for the ceremony!!

                Thanks!!!!!!!!

                  Hey Ladies!!

                   

                  I am getting married here at the GBP in apr 2014!! :)

                  So excited!!!!

                  I am wondering if there are any recent - already married brides on here that had their wedding at the GBP!!

                  What was your overall cost for your wedding?? Not including flight/stay, just cost of ceremony/reception/photos/flowers etc!!

                  What photographer did you use?? I read good things about Chris Lee - one of the photographers there?? I was hoping to take my photographer from home, but she charges the cost of flight/stay for her and an assistant, and $560 charge, and then the resort is $800 fee - which means her cost is over $5000 - i LOVE her photos, but not sure if i can afford that price.

                  What did you do for music etc? I really love the sound of the steel drum band!! :)
                  Thanks!!

                    I have chosen the semi-private location for my wedding - any recommendations on which a la cart is the best? I have about 50 guests.

                      The food at the grill was great, but not the most cozy or romantic place.  The Dolce Vita food is ok, but the setting is romantic and is by the water.  It's going to be a hard decision for me too as I liked the setting of the italian much more.......when I was there, there was a wedding group.  They had them kinda secluded away from the general crowd which was nice too.
