    Hi all,


    If anyone has information on their experiences at Grand Sunset Princess, please let me know.  We've booked everything for April 2013 and are currently deciding on which package to go with.


    We're looking at the Chill Out area for our reception as well as the Royalty package because we are doing a legal ceremony. 


    Does anyone have any advice or experiences to share?  It would be greatly appreciated!

            OMG! M&m photog beautiful! Is that photographer down there? I'm getting married there inDec 2013. Hey L, we stayed at the Riviera side last spring but it is basically the same resort together. It is beautiful that's why we decided to get married there. Plus having been there we know already. I have chosen the "Mayan Ceremony" for ours. They will let u make changes for extra $$ of course. They have been awesome for faxing/emailing. If I can suggest which restaurant I will b picking LaFleur. As far as traditional fare (nice steak, beautiful presentation) It is my choice for ours hands down. I also suggest you do NOT get a pedi or treat your ladies to that down there. Massage or other spa stuff yes. But they just do plain polish and me and my fiancĀ© had 1 hr massage and I had pedi on top I came out 5 mins after him....you do the math. Any other q's or if u want pics of food I have that too. Just PM me....who are using for photography and how much???

              I totally agree with laurissa37,  MTM's photographer,  Linc has a way of capturing the GOLD in his wedding "moments that matter".......telling the wedding story with unique style + flair :)


              Wishing you all the best with your decisions, and that you have the gorgeous wedding you've always dreamed of! Cheers :)

                Does grand sunset have vendor fees for outside photographers or just day passes? Thanks

                    I'm assuming its like the Riviera Princess that I have booked. $200 for Photog, $200 for assistant or you book a room for the night for them ($300 total)...I have booked a room.I have also signed contract and put deposit with MTM. He seems great!
