Hey Ladies,

 

Has anyone looked into what the difference is between the Free Package and the Sunshine Package?  It seems like you're paying a lot more money for 10 pictures and turn down service.  I tried to email Chandlyn (and keep getting a response from someone named Donnalee??) but she gave me a vague answer about the difference being on the brochure...??

 

I just want to know if it's worth it to pay the extra $$?

When are you getting married?  They have come out with new packages for 2012 which are quite different from the current packages.

 

Donnalee is Chandlyn's assistant.  Chandlyn used to be the assistant to Beverly who is no longer there.

Check out this thread if you haven't already.  There is way more information and tons of recent reviews of the resort, including mine.

Hi Boots,

I am getting married at the GBP in Feb 2013 and have been emailing the WC recently to make my arrangements. The $2500 is to privatize the Dolce Vita and The Grill for evening.  I think if you have or 70 people they require you do that, but I'd have to go back through my emails to be sure.  The $25 pp is based on the guests over and above what are included with the package you chose, and there doesn't seem to be anyway around this.  Another option for your dinner and dance that I recently found out about is the Pisces, which is the restaurant down by the beach used for lunch/snacks.  It is $1700 to rent it for 4 hrs (6:30 - 10:30), they figure the first 2 hrs for dinner and the last 2 hrs for dancing, etc.  Your DJ is included for the whole 4 hrs and you have the bartender for the first 2 hrs during dinner, but you may be able to have them longer for a price, of course.

Definitely check out the thread that JayKay mentioned, there is so much information on there and it will take you a bit to go through, but it is a huge sanity saver!

Hope this helps and happy planning!!

Hi Everyone,

 

We are considering getting married at this resort next May 2014 but am having trouble first getting estimated costs for all the "extras" that would be required:  upgraded wedding package, cost for a private dinner/reception site, cost for a DJ for the private dinner/reception site, if there is a cost for a bit of a customized menu...

 

Has anyone done any of this for their wedding, and if so, was hoping you might be able to give me a ball park on the extra costs?

 

Also, if you did do a private dinner/reception area, what area/restaurant did you use?  I understand their is an open-air garden restaurant we could rent out for the night, or something by the pool or beach?

 

Muuuuch appreciated if you could pls shed some light!

 

Thanks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
