I am set to have the royal catholic package, but still considering upgrading to the Luxury Package, since it included alot of thing that I want to upgrade to. I haven't yet, but bc I want the cocktail hour and private reception, I just may go ahead and do so. I haven't received any info on it yet though! lol! And it definitley is easier to get information on here than from your WC!!

I am doing the luxury package and I was given a list of hor' d'oeuvres a while ago but no one specified how many you pick from, do you know?
Sorry for all the questions, it seems easier to get the information here than through the WC!
Do you know what the cocktail cold foods were? Or the hot ones if you chose them? How many different cold ones were you able to get?
As far as the menu, you picked before you were actually there, right? How did you decide what was going to be good, just by chance? Were you able to do a taste test once you arrived?

My WC had told me i can make my menu by using the entrees' from all of the menus........Basically I got to pick which appetizer, main course, and dessert from their entire catalog of "menus"...........I was actually able to choose two different entrees and just had to indicate which entree was going to each person.....I had Beef fillet turndao with three pepper sauce (DELICIOUS!!) and had a pink ribbon on the maracas for beef........and the Samon Fillet (also delicious!) with an orange ribbon aroudn the maracas.......This way the servers knew who was having what...............makes sense?
WE had a cocktail hour as well but we did not upgrade to hot foods......But everyone ate what was served and loved it! I didnt have any as we were taking photos at the time..........To be honest, everyone is so excited about the wedding, and what's going on that they dont complain or notice little things, like if the canapes are hot or cold ones.....
How's wedding planning going? When is your wedding?? how many people you have so far?
Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all! you can also feel free to PM me.....I check the site everyday *sigh* lol
When you met with the presit, you said he went over the flow of things on who walks in first and all, did he also go over when people are to come up to do readings, and when they come up for the gifts (lazo, coins, etc...)
Did you turn in your guest list and choices to your WC or your on site WC? I feel like 45 days is a long time in advance to make final choices, especially what if someone books last minute!!

My WC was originally Katia....I loved her!!! and then was transfered to Elvy Arroyo because Katia had gone on maternity leave last December....I was able to hand in my Guest list and final checklist and all other documents a few weeks before the wedding......Not even a month before.....different WCs work differently, so check with yours! You have to have everything over to them so that they can make the transition from your WC to your onsite WC about 5-6 weeks before the wedding.......
I was married in the Chapel, and since i met with the priest the day before the wedding, he let us know the flow of who walks in first, etc.......if you have having a ceremony on the gazebo, same deal applies......your onsite WC will go over this with you when you meet with her.....and you guys can decide together with her the order of the ceremony (who walks in first etc).......this is what I did.....my onsite WC was Elizabeth Sotelo.....she was lovely! and took care of absolutely everything!
I did have a rehearsal/welcome dinner two nights before the wedding (when all of our guests arrived).......Since almost everyone stayed at the Royal, we had our Dinner at Maria Marie in The Royal........This is the only restaurant that they have available to do a semi-private dinner up to 35 people........but i am sure you can work with them if you have somewhere between 35-40 people.....Maria Marie at the royal has a area that is very private (which is amazing since your event is semi-private) and this is how it's set up (pic below)........because it is considered a semi-private event, we only had to pay $15 per person for each Real Resort guest and $30 for non-real resort guest..................is the $40 she is giving you a new price? or is this for a "private" event?
Please let me know if you have ANY questions.....I'll be happy to help!!
Hi all! We are planning to get married at the Gran Caribe Real on November 18, 2011! We sent in the information to book last week but have not received the wedding code as of yet. We were assigned to Claudy as our WC. Anyone work with her and share experiences?! I was waiting to get started on everything until we FOR SURE got everything booked but am getting nervous. We've also been working with Teresa from Vacations4Less for our travel agent but suddenly her emails are getting bounced back to me today....
We are going with the Royal Catholic package. Any tips on that, as well? We will, be getting married in the chapel & then still deciding on a reception place. We are wanting a private reception outside.
All of my guests are staying at the Real resorts. At least all that I know about at this point. I let them know ahead of time that they are free to stay wherever they chosse, but they needed to know that if they stay somewhere else, they may be charges a guest pass for the day. I was told that, but have heard on here before that they didn't charge for guests of your wedding that were staying somewhere else. Not too sure!
