    I just came across this site yesterday and have been reading through a lot of the reviews about the gran porto real. This is so awesome!  We are having our wedding there in april 2012 and I am putting a deposit down today but I'm still unsure of which package I want and cant decide between just a cocktail reception or dinner reception, or both! I already feel like my head is spinning, I don't even know where to start! Unfourtunetly with the days we are there, it works out that we wouldnt be able to get married until thursday which kind of sucks because they charge an additional $400 to have your wedding at 4pm thurs-sun....so im kind of stumped there. Any input, advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!

      Congratulations Lindsay and welcome to the forums!

      I just shot the Gran Porto Real... great resort and location you will love it! If you do decide on a dinner reception they do have the best beach location. It is right on a point beside the pier and so romantic!

        Wow it looks beautiful at night! We did chose to have our dinner reception on the beach, I'm so happy we did! Thanks for sending that! Do you have any other pics? I would love to see more of the resort/ wedding.

                  Hi Lindsey,


                  I am also getting married at the Gran Porto Real in Playa this coming June


                  We are doing everthing ala carte until we are sure how many will attend.

                  Since the resort needs everything to me paid 1 month in advance, I have sent out all invitations and made the RSVP due by March 1st.

                  Once I get a good idea of how many will attend, I will then chose a package.


                  Here is what is going on with me so far...

                  -Beach Wedding on North Beach Saturday, June 2 - I did shell out the extra $400 for the Saturday

                  -Beach 3 hour reception - not sure about the cocktail hour yet.

                  -Music - dont know if it will be a DJ or mariachi band.

                  -Centerpieces - I'm bringing my own. I was not happy with their $60 flowers/per table.


                  Here is where some of the past and present Gran Porto brides have been posting.



                  Are you in need of a Travel Agent? I am using Terrah Rominger with Legacy Travel. They are fantastic! 



                  I hope this helps. Let me know how things are going for you.

                    Hi Julie,


                    Thanks for posting! I have a bit of a tough time navigating this site! So the link to the gran porto thread was just what I needed! What are you thinking of doing for center pieces? I am going to do my own as well, as theirs are costly and not that special looking. My dilema is that I dont want to bring so much stuff down there with me!


                    I am also having our ceremony and dinner reception on the north beach. We are going to have a cocktail reception as well I'm pretty sure. Just ironing out all of our final details as I have to send them in by feb.18th! AHHhhh I am starting to feel a little panicky about making decisions and not knowing what it will all be like until we get there. At least on here there are pics and review, so that helps a bit.
