Gran Caribe Real 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

I wondered if there are any other 2011 Gran Caribe Real gals out there!

 

I know there is a Royal PDC thread that sometimes mentions the other Royal and Real Resorts, but Gran Caribe Real tends to get lost in the shuffle.

 

I thought it would be nice for those of us planning weddings here for next year had a place just for us!

 

I'd love to hear where you are holding your ceremony and reception, who you are dealing with from the resort, etc.

 

Also, does anyone know if they ever allow a private reception at the Albatros restaurant?

We're planning on going with the Eternal Romance package and upgrading several features (like musician for the ceremony).

 

My fiance did the math and figured that we can get all the elements we wanted from the Luxury package for less by taking the lower package and upgrading just the parts we care about.

 

Kiwicorreo, the Catholic chapel is gorgeous!

We are definately considering it.......not at this property but we both would really like to have something "different". This is both of ours 2nd marriage so we decided let's try something a little out of the ordinary.

We are getting married at the Gran Caribe gazebo on June 18, 2011, but are staying at the Royal. Our reception will be on the villa terrace at the Gran Caribe also. We are still in the process of confirming all our dates but are getting really close to signing the contract. We are working with a girl named Julie and she has been very helpful so far. We have been to the Royal twice in the past two years and absolutely love it there! It is our favorite resort!

Kristen, have you visited Gran Caribe during your trips? We are considering the villa terrace too, but we're a little concerned about wind. Any thoughts on that?

We're working with Aja. She seems very organized and responsive.

Karielk - On our last trip to The Royal (March '10) we went over to the Gran Caribe on a site visit tour. We love the Villa Terrace and it was the deciding factor on our wedding date because it was the only Saturday in June 2011 that the villa terrace was available for an evening reception. The day we were there it was extremely windy. We are very concerned about the wind at our reception, but I think it would be windy anywhere on any given day. We are just crossing our fingers for a sunny, non windy day :)

Yeah, the villa terrace looks like such a gorgeous spot! We just can't seem to decide where we want the reception. We're not going to be able to do a site visit. =(

 

Did you (or anyone else!!!) by any chance see the "Real Club" room? Aja says it's a potential spot, but the only pictures she has come from one of the other resorts. She said it's in the Sunset Grill?

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
