    Thanks for the suggestions! I will check out the types of papers Michaels has since I can get a coupon for either 40 or 50% off. I was thinking of going to staples but this is a better idea! Yay! Thanks again!

      Hi pamnrodphx,

       

      How long will you be there? My wedding is 4/27/2012. I'll be flying in on the 23rd. Please let me know how your site visit goes! I've never been to this resort so I'd love to hear your opinion.

        Hi Everyone -

         

        Our wedding is just over a month away and I'm trying to figure out what to do about the place cards (identifying each person's food options) - we have about 150 people coming to the wedding and I was initially thinking of using color coded maracas, but that would be rather pricey.  Our reception is on the beach and I'm afraid it might be too windy for actual place cards.  Anyone have other suggestions about what they did? 

         

        Thanks!!

        Carmela

          Hey Ladies, my wedding is less than a month away now! So excited. I was just informed that my on site WC is Diana Gutierrez. Does anyone have any information about her? I'm hoping she will work with me on everything I want...

            Vanessa C:

             

            My fiancĀ© and I are getting married there also, on April, 20 2012.

            I have been through these threads for a while now and have compiled a list of Good and Bad on site wedding coordinators, based on brides that have had wedding there. I have heard all good things about Diana. Take a look at this link posted previously by another bride. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/60551/review-gran-caribe-real-in-cancun

             

            You may consider sending her a PM to ask her of her experience. Please keep us after your wedding, and let us know how it went. Best Wishes.

              Carmresu,
              Here are some maracas for about a dollar each (or $2 for pair). Is that still out of budget?

                Will you be doing a seating chart as well? I am trying to figure this same thing out. I dont have as many people but i wasn't wanting them to have to have an assigned seat.

                  Hi ladies!

                   

                  Ok, I'm literally two months away from my wedding and I'm getting a little irritated! First, I found out Flora was my onsite coordinator which I was not too happy about. After reading all the negative comments about her on this forum I'm just a little worried...

                   

                  Now, I ordered maracas from Mischka in Puerto Vallarta, she ships to Cancun on a regular basis so I figured no big deal. I just wired the money and I emailed my coordinator asking for the address for shipping and her reply was " we cannot accept any package because we have no where to store it". Really, I am paying thousands of dollars to get married at this resort and they can't hold onto a box for two weeks?! Has anyone shipped anything to the GCR before, I don't know what to do!!

                    Have you asked to have your onsite WC changed?

                     

                    When do you arrive to the resort? Perhaps you can have Mischka deliver the maracas when you are already there......instead of two weeks before the wedding.......that might work better!

                      I was going to ask about shipping to hotel as well! I guess that answers my question on that! I can't believe they won't accept shipments! I still haven't received my onsite WC contact info, and my wedding is less than a month away!

                      But, just FYI, I spoke with a girl who got married there in March, and she ended up having Flora as her WC, and of course was not happy about it at the beginning bc of all the bad reviews, but she said she ended up being really good! Let me know if you would like to contact her so you ask her yourself whatever questions you may have, and I can let you know! :)
