    Hey girls!... I'm so confused right now... I thought I found the most awesome resort for the price and location for my wedding.

    I was looking into the Gran Caribe Real.. and booking a Gran Master Suite so I qualify for the free wedding which is just the basics.

    The Free Wedding Package includes:
    • Professional services of an onsite Wedding Specialist
    • Special decoration of the couple’s suite with rose petals
    • Marriage ceremony performed by a Non-Denominational Christian Minister or Justice of the Peace
    • Witnesses (if required)
    • Decorated oceanfront wedding gazebo or beachfront location
    • Sound system for the ceremony (bring your favorite music on CD’s, iPod or MP3)
    • Champagne toast after the ceremony
    • Real Resort’s Signature Royal wedding cake for two
    • Late check-out for the couple up to 6 P.M. (subject to availability)

    I do have some guests coming anywhere from 10-20maxx... who I want to witness this amazing day..

    Anyway I just spoke to the wedding cordinator who was extremely rude! She kept cutting me off, being negative, kept twisting stuff around etc.. Im extremely upset!...

    AND for my family to watch I have to pay 5$ each just to watch the cermony.. like wth? and another 10$ for a private cocktail for 1 hr on top of that....

      The $5 and $10 charge doesn't surprise me, but personally I would rethink it just because of the WC's attitude. That's not someone I want to be dealing with while planning such an important day.

        I second! It's a long wedding planning process, so if you're not happy to work with the WC, it's gonna be frustrating. B/W, you pay for great service too, not just the package!

          Do you guys have any recommendations of where I should stay in Cancun, near nightlife, good packages, friendly WCs? :) I don't want guests paying more then $2000... is that asking for a lot? lol

            Who did you speak with at the Gran Caribe? I've been dealing with them and have had no problems at all. It's a beautiful resort and the Royal next door is amazing!!
            I've been there twice already and going back again in a few weeks. If you want me to get any info or take any pics just let me know.
            Also not sure if your catholic or not but they just opened a beautiful chapel in the Gran Caribe. I have pics of it decorated that the resort WC sent me. Let me know if your interested in seeing them.

              Have you thought about contacting one of our travel agents on the forum? Most of them work closely with the resort and might be able to suggest one that gets good reviews and are easy to work with.

                We originally had our wedding scheduled in Cancun at the Casa Magna Marriott (not all-inclusive); all of their WC are awesome (they have a team that works between Casa Magna & JW Marriott, which is next door.) We were actually going to stay at an all inclusive, but have the wedding/reception at the Casa Magna. Unfortunately, due to the swine flu, all our plans were in vain (but hey we got to get married in Maui, so not too shabby.) The grounds at both JW & Casa Magna are beautiful & like I said the WC staff is amazing. Good luck!!

                  Any update? How did everything work out? Did you end up sticking with the GCR? If so how are thing with the WC? Most likely getting married there Oct. 2010, just want to know that I'm in for!

                      Ive just taken a look at the chapel it looks beautiful.I would however go to someone higher in the company.Iwould say i am a bride already booked that you wernt happy to give your name but you have serious issues with her attitude.That you had given her the benefit of doubt as far as her having an off day.Rather than being accomodating she has offered you another wedding coordinator.Of course by the time your wedding arrives she may not be there anyway.If she is just tip everyone around her leaving her out!!!!! Your wedding will be wonderful even with the not so pleasent coordinator.x
