I am also getting married at the Riviera Princess in November, sooo exciting!
Do you mind sending me the menu and pics of the bouquets? The registration says you have to indicate what bouquet and boutoniere you want but they don't send you any pictures!
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!

Yes this resort is great, I was actually there with a group of friends in 2011. You will find that with a lot of resorts in this area, will charge you anywhere from $200-$600 to bring in an outside vendor for your wedding, bringing in an outside vendor is different from getting a day pass. Some resorts will charge you for both the vendor fee as well as the day pass! The reason they charge you to bring in an outside vendor is because they would like you to use their services at the resort (photographer, videographer, DJ etc) just like any other hotels here in Canada or the US, they would like to keep the revenue in house.
If you are traveling during slow season, if the resort is not that busy, one side (either the Sunset or Princess) will be like its almost shut down, so not all the restuarnts will be open on that side. But still if one side is closed it's still a very large resort, but no worries there are shuttles to transport you from the front of the resort to the back.
The Grand Riviera Princess/Sunset has a great outdoor "Chill" area in which I believe its $15USD per day to use, but its a roped off section on the beach with day beds and a bar, you can book dinners on the beach there for as well, for about $120USD on top of your all inclusive.
Hope this helps, wish all you awesome ladies the best of luck =)

We hired a travel agent at home to help me with everything and she actually suggested it to us! We had looked at every resort out there and for some reason, never came across this one.
I read tons of mixed reviews so I was a little nervous. I ended up getting really lucky because one girl that I work with went there and decided she wanted to get married there because she loved it so much! A few months later, my boss went there and loved it so much that she recommended it to another lady that I know, she just got back and said it was amazing!!
I picked it because I love the fact that it is sooo big! There is one thing about the resort that is bothering me, If you hire anyone outside of the resort to do anything you have to pay $200.00US per person to allow them onto the resort. I wanted to hire a photobooth company, 2 hours after dinner, and they told me that unless I pay $400 extra dollars, they are not allowed to come onto the resort. The photobooth company told me that they have heard of day passes for about $50-70 but never anything like that. Same also goes with the photographer but I have heard really great things about the resort photographer so I just booked them!

Grand Princess is a lovely Resort and the wedding will be amazing, i have done a few over there! July is very hot but with a few tricks you will be having all guests fresh (mas o menos...;-))
and very happy!
1. Do not let them wait long in the sun: make sure w you WP to have them sit 5 min before you walk in: it is painful to see invited guests sit 20 minutes under the sun waiting...
2. give plenty of Water and no alcohol before ceremony (tell you WP to prepare a case w water bottles for all or better: jamaica or lemonade)
3. Keet exposure to sun to the minumum: get married at 6 or have a sunset wedding: photos can be take before and the hot sun will be almost gone
4. Advice light colors: a black dress or suit is unbearable in this climate.
Enjoy & have fun planning! Be creative w your flowers: I love cacti & succulents for bouquets...
