  1. Hey ladies just had my wedding in February. I would write a review here bu t I've been so busy since I came back home. I did write a TripAdvisor review although it's not as detailed as I would like. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g150807-d503456-r125207430-Gran_Caribe_Real_Resort_Spa-Cancun_Yucatan_Peninsula.html Hope it helps and if you have any other questions, feel free to message me.
  2. Hey Norma. Just had my wedding in February. We did not sign anything about a set of guidelines. Hopefully it wasn't the cause of any wedding party for them to start requesting this. Also, the priest did not ask much questions regarding sponsors for me. My sponsors were not married. I even had 2 of my grandmothers do the Lazo ceremony. If you have anymore questions, feel free to message me. For everyone else, I wrote a review on TripAdvisor. It wasn't as detailed as I would like but I've been busy since I came back home. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g150807-d503456-r125207430-Gran_Caribe_Real_Resort_Spa-Cancun_Yucatan_Peninsula.html Hope it helps and if you have any other questions, feel free to message me.
  3. Carmresu, Thank you thank you for your review and posting your video!!! If I had known how beautiful your video was, I would have looked for a videographer like yours rather than simply using Funever. I like how they got the shot of your husband getting stuck in his barong. You guys are so cute. My wedding is in February and your video goth excited and scared at the same time. Haha. And kudos for having 152 guests at your wedding!! We are only having 41 and even then it's been difficult trying to coordinate traveling arrangements and following up with our guests. I wish you guys the best of luck and thank you again. I really appreciate your review.
  4. Hey ladies. Congrats on your wedding! Mine's next month. We will have our ceremony in the chapel as reception in Villas Terrace. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Emily11386, I'm not much of a DIY bride so after searching through numerous sites, I got mine done by Concepts & Technology. They're a company in the Philippines so I communicated with them through email (they speak english) and could not have been any more happier with my invitations. The quality of the invitation feels like actual passports, not like paper or even cardstock and they were about $3ea invite, which included everything you see in the picture I attached. Here is a link to their page with more examples of their work- http://conceptstechnology.multiply.com/?&show_interstitial=1&u= Babigirl21, I'm working on our OOT/Welcome bags right now. They include net drawstring backpacks as beach bags, survival kit w. 1st aid kit and meds and ear plugs and crest mini tooth brushes and electrolyte packets, playing cards, mini inflatable beach ball, hotel key/tip card holder with a mexican spanish translation guide. Not sure if I should fill it with anything else. I originally planned on filling it with more things that I find once I'm there but now I'm not so sure if I'll want to do so when the time comes. haha.
  5. Hey does anyone know how long the chapel is? I bought 2 spools of tulle that are 25 yards each to place on the pews down the aisle with pew bows and pom poms. And does anyone know where we meet the priest for confession? My date is less than a month away!!!!
  6. Hi, He has a website. Not sure what it is but I've googled Maya Floral, Cancun and his website shows up. Also, I've been emailing him about my preferences and he's emailed me back with samples of his work. Just put in our deposit with him.
  7. Hey ladies. Just want to share a website for booking. My maid of honor found it and she's able to book at our resort cheaper than anywhere else. The special rates end this Thursday, December 15 but full payment isn't until January 16. Hope this helps. www.deltavacations.com
  8. Thanks Ladies. I didn't mind if 1 or 2 couples were staying elsewhere, because I at least expected my bridesmaids to stay at our resort but when it got down to the prices, other resorts were cheaper. So now they're trying to do this thing with getting day-passes and all that but it just seems too much. I actually haven't been talking to them a lot because of how upset I am. Is it wrong of me to feel that they left me alone by staying at other resorts? I understand that price is a major factor but it hurts nevertheless. They say we'll hang out clubbing and stuff but how much more complicating would it be to try and meet people from other resorts when we won't have full use of our phones due to roaming fees? I also plan on being busy before the wedding with favors and out of town bags. Plus most of my guests haven't booked yet because they're still looking for deals but I need to hand in my guestlist to my wedding coordinator in less than 2 weeks. I understand that people are busy with the holidays but we've been planning this for more than a year now. =[
  9. Congrats ladies. Hope you have fun planning than I do because I have been mostly miserable. Our date is February 2012. So far only 2 couples are staying in GCR with us and everyone else (including my bridesmaids) are staying at other resorts such as Riu and Barcelo. I'm upset bc I'm afraid I won't be able to see any of them except for during the wedding. We chose a destination wedding so we can be on vacation with our close family and friends yet everyone is doing their own thing booking at other resorts. My parents and his mom haven't even booked yet and it's less than 3 months away! We are still waiting on about 30-50 guests for their response. Frankly I'm not even excited about this anymore. Anyways, sorry to be a Debbie Downer. Just needed to vent.
  10. Question, since we're having a Catholic ceremony in MX, do we need to apply for a marriage license/have a civil ceremony in our hometown? I tried calling our hometown office to schedule a date but the woman on the phone told me that I did not need to since we are already getting married in MX and that there's no reason to get married twice. I was trying to tell her that it was a religious ceremony and not a civil but she was adamant about not needing to schedule a date with our hometown. From what I understand, a Catholic ceremony is not considered a legal marriage in MX so usually people have both. I thought it was more of a symbolic ceremony anyways. What were your experiences? Your replies are truly appreciated. Thanks.
  11. Oh and did you ladies have to show sacramental documents (baptism, communion, confirmation) as well as the letter of approval to the church in Cancun?
  12. Our priest said he is having our letter go through our church and their church. I've been calling him and leaving voicemails every week for about 3 weeks to ask for a copy but no reply yet. I'm trying to be patient but can't help feeling anxious.
  13. Hey has anyone used Funever's videographer? I have an idea of their photography/work but I do not know how their videography.. Also, do you know if their Spa uses MAC make-up/fake eye-lashes? lol. I just want to make sure their make-up and hair application is good quality so it doesn't melt by the end of the night. If not I may just bring my own and ask them to use it. And for those with a traditional Spanish Catholic ceremony, is there a program book/information I can find that includes the order of the lasso, veil, and coins added onto the catholic mass? Thanks so much.
