    I am getting Married at the Grand Riviera Princess Hotel in November 2013!!!


    Although I am very excited to have finally decided on a resort that will accomodate my party of 30 friends and family members, I am concerned about all the details of the wedding. We have decided to marry in Toronto and have a symbolic ceremony at the Resort. Is it better pay additional for the Royalty package or should be have a vow renewal ceremony instead and spend on the photography package? I've read on different forums that guests won't know the difference. Has anyone done it this way? What has been your experience.


    Also, does anyone have menus of pictures of the bouquets that are provided by the hotel or should I just bring pictures of my own pictures when I arrive?


    Any other advice and pictures you lovely ladies can share would be immensely appreciated.


    Thank you!

      Hi Brigitte aka BG2013,


      Congratulations on your engagement! The Gran Riviera Princess Resort is a great resort, you'll definitely be happy. Lots of restuarants and bars to choose from and they have a great animation team that keeps everyone well entertained during the day in pool, on the beach and give great performances in the theatre nightly.


      I always advise my Canadian clients who will be having a symbolic ceremony in destination, to arrive at least 2-3 days before the wedding just to make sure you have time to meet with the Wedding coordinator and get things in order.


      If you change your mind and decide to have your legal ceremony in destination and go with the Royal Package, remember that you have to be in destination 4 business days before the wedding. The reason for this is because you will have to meet the Judge/Justice of the Peace and get your blood tests done. You will also need to bring a copy of your birth certificates, passports, tourist card (which they will give you on the plane), and have 4 witnesses.


      If either of you have previously ever been married, you will need a Non Marriage License which is about $200USD, and will need to provide your divorce certificate as well.


      Hope this was helpful, I wish you all the best of luck!
