      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?

                      Thanks for the reply, I'm glad I asked.  It seems a bit fishy to me.  I have been dealing with Omeashia at GPLH.  How did you pay your deposit exactly?
