Hey everyone! My wedding is booked for march 3rd, 2014 at GBP and can't believe how fast time is flying by already, I need to start planning! I am looking at the wedding packages available and was wondering if anyone knows about the romance extravaganza... It says it includes a sit down reception dinner which I'm assuming is in one of the restaurants. So is that where the open bar after the reception is as well or do they move it somewhere else?And is a dj included or is that an extra fee? I'm hoping to get in contact with the coordinator at some point soon to clarify some things, i have so many questions! lol but if anyone knows anything about this please let me know! Thanks!

    My mom actually called to speak with Someone a couple weeks ago. If you have Over 50 guests who HAVE to pay for a private dinner and the Piscis is cheaper than the private dinner at one of the restaurants. So it was an easy decision.

    211 more days.....

    I feel like a kid on a long car drive, "are we there yet? Are we there yet".

    As far as  Piscis is concerned........ do you have your dinner there to?  I'm liking the idea of this location.  I understand that you pay 1700.00 for this location and that it includes a DJ and open bar..  Do you only get the bar for 2 hrs though as per the romance extravaganza package?   If anyone has any info on this it would be much appreciated.

        This is a picture of the set up we had for our dinner at the grill.  We were all on one long table, which was fine because we had a small group.  They had asked if we wanted to have a few smaller tables, but we chose the one large one.  I'm sure they can accommodate what you are looking for in terms of tables ect.  There was a small table behind us for our cake, and there was no one even close to us.  All the other people were on the opposite side of the place so it felt pretty private.

            I think if you bring your own you could change the table clothes.  I wasn't to particular and just went with whatever they had, including the ugly yellow menus.  If I would have known they made them yellow I would have asked for a different color.
