Hey all -

 

We're strongly considering the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya for our March 2010 wedding, but I'm getting a bit worried that there seems to be no other brides going there! What gives? Is there something I don't know?

 

I'd love to hear from anyone who's either been to a GSRM wedding, or will be hosting one...

Welcome! We attend a wedding at the Grand Sirenis in November 2007. The hotel itself is quite new and the grounds sprawling - it certainly has that "modern" feel - clean lines, grey, black, silver etc. the lobby looks like a fancy bank.

 

The wedding was beatiful - although not overly private so if seclusion is something you are big into then I would look at other spots at the hotel aside from the beach...

 

There are two things I would keep in mind - the hotel is a 2 hour bus ride from the cancun airport which is quite significant, and the beach is small (I think it's a man made lagoon and beach).

 

If you have specific questions ask away! The

Not sure if you have decided on this resort yet or not. My FI and I were there last August (200cool.gif and although it was a nice clean hotel, it did not feel that "mexican" to me. The one really great thing about this resort is the two open bars, one in each reception but on the lower floor. A good gathering place for your guests to meet and have drinks. The pools are okay, in comparison to Barcelo Maya Colonial/Beach resort. If you would like to see some photo's of the resort you can search through mine that I have posted. Send me a PM and I will forward the link to you if you are interested.

 

Good luck with planning.

Hey - thanks for the info! we actually decided to go with this resort, so I do have a question!
-How large was the wedding you attended, and do you remember which restaurant it was in?

As far as restaurants at the resort, they tend to use the restaurant areas that are the daytime buffets, if that makes any sense. There are two that come to mind immediately, both near a pool. The beach was nice and has really great snorkeling. It is smaller but more of an intimate cove with a dive shop at one end. I agree with MissyR that a beach ceremony may not be all that private, but if you are able to go off around the side of the beach (back towards the airport direction, not towards Tulum side) then it may be more private. When we were there it was not at full occupancy so everything was a little quite. They should have all the resort shops open by now and what was open was nice.

Congrats! The wedding was about 45 people - and If I recall correctly, it was in the Mexican Restaurant...

I am also considering this resort. I have been talking to the wedding coordinator there and she is very timely with her responses and has been very helpful. We are just waiting for our travel agent to find a decent price. Our wedding is in July so we were hoping that the prices would be a little better.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
