Just Married REVIEW - GRAN CARIBE & LE MERIDIEN - w/pics

Recommended Posts

Simba, thank YOU for answering my questions! I greatly appreciate all of your help. Another question, what time was your ceremony at the chapel? Your pictures look great and I am afraid that since I am having mine at 4p, the lighting might not be as great since I believe the average sunset in February in Cancun is around 5:30p. Thanks again. I'll definitely check out the aisle runner too!

My ceremony was a 3pm in April.  You might actually get the nice sunset which I didn't have because it was too early.  I'm not really sure though.. you should ask your coordinator.  Good luck - it will be perfect!

I just realized I gave you the wrong website for the aisle runner. The correct site is http://www.customizedweddingcreations.com/

Hi,

I am looking into having a destination wedding in May 2012 and am looking into the Chapel at the Gran Caribe.  I read somewhere that you can walk through the kids club to have a longer walk to the chapel.  Did they show you that option?  I am really hoping not to have to walk down the staircase to the right of the chapel.  That is really my only reservation.

That was my really big fight with them during the planning process.  They offered walking through the kids area as a suggestion when I told them I didn't want to walk down the stairs.  But then later on they said they strongly adviced against the kids area because you could get wet and they REFUSED to turn off the water games for those 5 minutes I was walking through. 

 

This was a really, really big deal for me.  One option I suggested to them was to let me rent out one of the rooms that opens up to the chapel but I wasn't a hotel guest so I would've had to book it for that one day and it was like $250.  I was so frustrated with how unaccomodating they were being that I ultimately decided I wasn't going to give them my $250 on top of all the other money I was already spending - I thought that as a common courtesy they should've just offered that room on their own.

 

Long story short, my day-of coordinator was WAYYYYYYY more accomodating than the other girl I had been dealing with over the months and she gave me the room behind the tennis courts for like 20 minutes before the ceremony.  I was able to put my dress on in there and walk right out through the balcony door into the walkway that leads to the chapel.  It worked out perfectly.

 

If you're going to be a hotel guest, you should request one of those ground floor rooms behind the tennis courts that have balcony's which open up to the walkway leading to the chapel.   If you request it far enough in advance, and you're a guest anyway, they should be able to accomodate it.  Good luck!

Simba, thanks for the advice. Did you say your day-of wedding coordinator was Diana? We're meeting her next week for our site visit. I hope she's good because there were other wedding coordinators that seem consistently not up to par with their jobs. sad.gif
