Hello Bette-Jo

I will be staying at the Royal (Sister hotel) but will be having the wedding at the Gran Caribe. My friend who is coming to the wedding is a hairdresser and a makeup artist so she will be doing all of us girls. Sorry I can't help you on that. I do know that my mother has been to the spa at the Royal and she said it was great. I was originally born in Ontario Canada and I had to get my Birth Cert. legalized from the Mexican Consolate after getting certified by the Ministry of Government for Ontario. I did have to get FI apostiolle done because he is American. It was pretty easy. I called the record dept and explain what I need it so they told me to just write a letter requesting for a long form BC and that it needs an apostiolle and they forward it to the State dept that does that for a fee of $10.00 and the fee for a long form BC was $40.00. Once I received all that information I forward just the Long form BC to World Access Translation for a fee of $40.00 each they translated each BC. I do remember somewhere in my reading that Alberta is has different rules for you. I would contact the Mexican consulate and see what you have to do or call the local govement office and see if they can direct you. I did all of my paper work over the summer of 2008 so it was out of the way. Nothing expries and it will all be within the year so Patty said that would be perfect. Some ladies on here have gotten legally married without any of these paper work but Patty said that I need it in order to have a legal wedding.Flowers I will just use in house due to the fact I'm only getting my bouquet and a boutonniere for him. My flower girl and 3 other girls will be carring a Parasols instead of flower. I hope this helps somewhat. Sorry for such a long write up.

I promise, I´ll back to you with information, Woww Mannia very expensive, I know there is a lot of good comments from mannia, but why don´t try with other guy?
Florist - Paty told me we can´t bring in an outside florist!! So I have to meet her.
DJ - Fee 100 US per person.

My ceremony will be at the Gazebo, and reception next to the Gazebo there is a private area, with private bar service and waiters included in the same price.

Don´t need t rent a private area, if you are paying for the service the area is included.

See yaaa
At the time I just saw how many great write ups I saw on Mannia and Music is very important to me so I just went for it. I also thought at the time I was good pricing considering I had a friend that just got married in NY paid about 3000 for onlly 4 hours and no dance floor. I see now that if I looked around I would have found a better deal. Oh well live and learn.

What is DJ for a $100 per person? Or is that what you are paying per plate charge? Sorry if I miss understood anything.

I just choose to have the reception in the ballroom instead of outside. I'm not paying more for the ballroom. I'm paying 30 for the cocktail hour outside by the Gazebo and $60 for the reception (in ballroom) per person a grand total of $90.00 per plate charge or per person. I also felt that the guest being outside from 5 to 7 for ceremoney (5 -5:45) and cocktail hour (5:45 - 7) they would like the AC for dinner and dancing from 7 to 12 Midnight. I wil be extending the ceremony the Judge will be leaving 20 minutes into the ceremony but I have something that I would like done that the guest will be reading two peoms and sand ceremony. I firgured that would be about 15 minutes of time bring the ceremony to almost 40 minutes

Please keep us posted on the florist maybe I'll change my mind by the time I arrive regarding the flowers. Have a wonderful time done there and can't wait for your feedback and the information you get.

I know alot of brides are looking for family resorts that have chapels- this one sounds fantastic!

 

Gran Caribe Real Cancun opens Roman Catholic chapel

By: Kenneth Kiesnoski

June 16, 2009

Real Resorts has opened Cancun's only consecrated Roman Catholic resort chapel on the grounds of the 477-suite Gran Caribe Real Cancun.

 

The chapel -- available for weddings, First Communions and other religious services -- is the latest in the all-inclusive chain's growing list of romance-themed facilities and services, which also includes beachfront weddings and vow renewals, private Lear jet transportation to add from the U.S. and Canada, limousine transfers, nine nuptials packages, honeymoon deals and a la carte wedding arrangements.

 

The all-glass, beachfront Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Chapel was dedicated in April.

 

"There's no other resort in Cancun with a Catholic chapel consecrated by the [local] bishop," said Monica Roberts, Real's corporate director of operations. "It's also unique in that we can offer marriages on Sundays, when priests usually are not available."

 

The chapel is available to couples staying at the family-oriented Gran Caribe Real Cancun and the adjacent, adults-only the Royal Cancun.

 

Real Resorts also offers Jewish, Protestant, civil and --- with its Mayan Experience wedding package -- shamanistic ceremonies at its five all-inclusive properties in Cancun and Playa del Carmen. (Real's other resorts are the Royal Playa del Carmen, Gran Porto Real Playa del Carmen and Real Playa del Carmen.)

 

"We offer a range of choices, from the most simple weddings to the most luxurious ceremony," said Graciela Ochoa, groups and conventions director.

 

Real's nine wedding packages are the Free Wedding, Romance Wedding, Classic Wedding, Classic Catholic Wedding, Royal Catholic Wedding, Mayan Experience, Eternal Romance Wedding, Luxury Wedding and Ultimate Luxury Wedding.

 

"We have many options to offer, many locations and many choices," added Ochoa. "If couples don't like any of the packages, they can pick what they want."

 

According to Roberts, Real Resorts hosts an average of 700 weddings a year. The chain hopes to grow that figure to 1,200 ceremonies annually, largely thanks to its new white-sand beach at Cancun, replenished after devastating Hurricane Wilma in 2005.

 

"We're really pushing the weddings market in Cancun," she said. "What most couples are looking for is to get married directly on the beach. That's what they come for."

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
