I am strongly considering the Gran Caribe Real for a July 2011 wedding. We have decided on Cancun and will be doing sie visits this summer July. My main concern right now is choosing a resort that is affordable for our guests. Its a toss up between Moon Palace and Gran Caribe Real. Has anyone recieved any group rate qoutes? I reached out to palace resorts and real resorts this afternoon.

I am also planning a November 2011 wedding at the GCR we haven't booked anything yet because waiting for 2011 prices to be released with the travel agent and also in discussions about weather to book the wedding direct with the hotel or with the TA.
Vanessa C.....We are hoping for the 12th November which will be a Saturday so you will be around at the same time as me :-) Do you have any ideas where you want your reception? are you planning on a private reception or semi-private? think we are going to have a private recpetion hopefully on the villa terrace carn't wait to start booking everything.
Is it still quite warm and nice weather in Cancun in November?

Vanessa, I wrote in the other thread too (on November 2011 brides), but I just wanted to say again how exciting it is that we'll be getting married there the same day!
We're currently booked for the wedding in the gazebo and the reception on the roof top terrace. We haven't taken a look at the photographers there because we knew we wanted to hire an outside one, since photos are a big priority for us. We also haven't tasted the reception food, but it all sounds delicious. With the 3 course meal, you have a choice of 1) shrimps with jambalaya rice, 2) red snapper stuffed with seafood & black caviar cream, or 3) beef fillet with mushroom sauce. There's also vegetarian and kid options.
Soon-to-be-McRae: Cancun high temperatures in November are around 83-85 F, and lows are around 70-72 F. You might note that it's the tail end of hurricane season, though they are very rare in November. Still, we're planning on getting travel insurance, just in case.

We haven't been able to book yet as in the UK we are waiting for prices for November 2011 to be released so we don't have a confirmed date as of yet but carn't wait to book.
FI would have liked to marry on 11/11/2011 but sounds like they have a few bookings for that date already :-)
What plans have you ladies made so far, have you chosen a colour scheme/theme for your special day?
