Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Wedding Info?!

Recommended Posts

@@SammyBranny21 - I'd be curious to know what she cleared up?  We love comparing notes to see if we missed anything!! (have you been on the Grand Sirenis brides thread?)...  I understand how to add my extras, and how upgrading works (you get noone free, pay for all, etc.) but.... paying for extra chairs over the 10, etc. blew my mind. Only realized this today lol!!!!


@@calgarybride2015 you'll have to keep me posted how things go closer to! I'm nervous to book the presidential because a lot of brides say it costs a fortune for extra hidden fees and they don't always get what's included. You booked free with palpa upgrade?

 

Yes I took the free wedding package but upgraded to the palalpa.  That was about $980, then about $1312 for food, $1354 for 4 extra hours of open bar, DJ for 6 hours, extra hour of cocktails while we take pics, the golf cart charge, blah blah blah!  Just didn't realize I had to pay for seats over / above 10 and more appis/toast drink over/above 10... sigh another $200!

Maria told me or whoever I'm speaking with said with an upgrade the chairs and tables are included. That's what I was crazy over! I think for the cocktail hour is what you pay for. I'm just prepared to pay. Lump sum when we get there and clear things out. I can't picture a nicer wedding anywhere else, that's why I'm sticking it out. It's more expensive and had less incentives. Some other places give you every 11th person free! This one is 21.

OHHHHH so I may get lucky on not paying extra chairs!   I agree, I can't imagine a more beautiful resort either and knowing people who have married there and vacationed there I am super happy with our choice. I also plan to just pay a lump sum too, but I am a planner and if I need more in the budget I want to know now hehe!

 

I know with the free wedding package you get it free with 10 double rooms, we have 15 so shouldn't have an issue. That saves us $1866 (and I confirmed this info, so it better not change on me!).  Also with Air Canada we get every 17th person free - so if all my numbers stand we get 2 packages free which frees up some money!

 

Sorry - does the presidential package give you every 21st person free? hadn't heard that before.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
