I am planning our wedding for May 2013.  My travel agent thinks there is a free wedding deal if 5 rooms are booked.  Have any one else heard this?  I am so confused because there offer several packages. Any opinions on the time of the day to have a wedding?  Thank you!

I am booked for March 8 2013.  I have not heard of this and I have been in touch with GP about group sales.  If you find out its true, please let us all know.  I think they offer 10, 1 or 4:00 weddings.  You can choose the beach or gazebo.  Check out some of the forums from 2011 or 2012.  There are tons of pictures from past brides.

We booked our wedding this weekend!  We are getting married May 28, 2013 at 2:00 on the beach!  The wedding is not free.  :( I was told the wrong info before.  If we book 21 people then we do get a free flight and room so that will save some money.  I was happy to hear my travel agent was able to call and speak with someone direct.  I have read many post about it being hard to talk to someone there!

Hey Ladies, 

Have any of you booked a photographer yet? OR at least done any research? I just started looking and am wondering if anyone has any advice? I am hoping to keep photography at $1000.......not sure if this is possible but I didn't expect the wedding to cost so much money! I am a little annoyed that we have to pay $20pp after 8 ppl to attend our ceremony!! It does not make sense to me! We are having about 40 ppl attend our wedding and private reception.

I booked True Colours Photography. They are the resorts photographers, so you wont have to pay any guest fees to get them onto the resort.   I can forward you their pricing list if you want?  Just let me know.  My budget was the same, but $1,000 doesnt get you very much.  I ended up going with 2 hours of photography and all edited images on CD for $900.  I figured if we at least had the ceremony and after ceremony pics covered it would be okay.

 

Our wedding is costing a lot too.  I have 50 ppl so far confirmed, so technically thats $20 pp for the ceremony and at least $45pp for the private dinner reception.  Plus the cost of the actual ceremony package, plus entertainment at the ceremony and reception, plus additional flowers for bm and gm, etc.  Add your trip and dress in there and tt all adds up!

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hello Ladies

 

I am just about ready to book my wedding at GPLH for July 2013.

I'm just a little bit nervous about sending my deposit via transfer to the bank in Miami.

Has anyone experienced an issue with the deposit?

 

Thank you

Hello Ladies

 

I am just about ready to book my wedding at GPLH for July 2013.  How did everyone send their deposits? I was asked to send mine to bank in Miami.  Is this secure?

 

Thanks

Hi there.  I would NOT wire money to a bank in Miami.  I did mine by credit card, which is the safest way.

Who have you been dealing with that requested you send the deposit to a bank in Miami?

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
