    Thank you for the welcome ladies, it is nice to see that there is someone else renewing vows as well Chibride, some of my family think that I am bonkers wanting to do it! Mexicobride your wedding is 8 days after ours I will still be at the resort then so I may see you!

    I have just had my basecamp account opened and I have got Katia as my WC ( I think) and apparently I need to sign the contract and scan it in and send it back to them, which seems a bit odd as they have already taken the deposit but I will enlist one of the kids to help me as I am pants at anything computer related (ahem... other than shopping...)

    My head is spinning with all of the things that I need to get sorted, photographers, flowers, makeup etc, have any of you ladies narrowed all of that down yet?

        I wonder if she is back off maternity as she is the person who has been e-mailing me? I am glad that you like her, makes me feel a little less nervous... ;)

        May I ask, do you have to pay the outside vendor fee for everyone including hair and makeup?

          Good morning fellow Gran brides:)

           

          A few days ago, I posted a new thread asking for some help.. My fiance and I will be doing a site visit this August and I have to choose three options from salad, soup, entrees, and dessert.. I asked my fellow brides for some insight.. Since we can only choose three to taste I would love to hear your experience with any of the dishes.. So far no one has responded=/ So I thought I would ask the question here! What menu options did you taste? Choose?

           

          Thanks ladies!

            We're visiting the Gran  Caribe Real on June 26.  I love the chapel and I am hoping we love the reception site...

             

            Does anyone have photos of their reception here?

             

            Also, does anyone have the 2012 menu options for the reception?  Is a buffet an option?  Thanks!

             

            Lindsey

              Hi Lindsey..

               

              The menus and everything else you might want to look at (flowers, cake, centerpieces) are online! You can go to the resort website.. Click on weddings.. Under packages and services, click on downloads and then wedding menus.. If you have trouble with it, send me your email and I can send it to you!

               

              Happy planning:)

                  Lindsey, we had trouble deciding too!

                   

                  So we are having our ceremony and reception at The Royal..

                   

                  And then the reception at The Gran Real Resort and Spa on one of their rooftop terraces..

                   

                  That could be something to consider?
