Gran Caribe Real 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts


I just thought of something that kinda went wrong on the wedding day. I had 2 guests that didn't stay at either the Gran or the Royal, and they got stopped at the lobby by security. Luckily, my girlfriend had my room number in her cell phone's email list, and was able to call our room and my hubby ran down there to get them.  Soooo, make sure you confirm with your WC AND the on-site coordinator (this had to be her fault for not giving me instructions for them) of your non-Real guests.  Even though I filled out the guest list twice for them, my friends said that the front desk didn't know about my wedding being held at the resort, so they didn't let them through. I assumed that the front desk or security would have a list of names of guests that were going to be there for the event.  Confirm confirm confirm!

Hi Emily! I just booked Photos in Cancun. They have great reviews and their work looks great.

They are also inexpensive!!!

When is your wedding?

Emily, I am using Cecilia Dumas. Her work is amazing but I was like you and didnt want to pay the ridiculous 350 plus guest pass for outside vendor so I just booked my photographer a room at the Gran Caribe for 250 which is way cheaper then paying the vender fee. Hey girls has anyone been told the cost for the DJ has gone up from 850 to 950? I just was told by Elsa my coordinator that it is now 950. Im fighting that because I was told originally it would be 850 and do not want to pay even more!!! Just wondering if anyone else is dealing with that right now. Im thinking prices probably went up after the new year! Blah

Leah when in April are you getting married?

Hi, I am using Juan Navarro for the photos, as I wasn't sure about the hotel's photographer and he has great reviews.  I have also booked a room at Gran Caribe instead of paying the outside vendor fee.  Just to let you know my WC has advised me they have changed their policies and if your photographer lives in Cancun you need to pay the outside vendor fee whether they are staying at the hotel or not.  My WC has only let me off the vendor fee as I asked her months ago about it.

 

So I would double check with your WC before you book your photographer!

I am getting married 4/15.  I also have Elsa as my WC.  She has not said anything about an increase of fees for the DJ.  We reserved Dorremix.  You would think they would honor their price list for the year?

I'm getting married 05/28 and my WC is Elvy. She already sent me the 2011/2012 rates and the DJ rate increased $100. I'm also using Doremixx and I'm so disappointed that they will not honor the rates.

I just emailed my WC, Ana. She hasn't mentioned anything to me about it and I have spoken with her many times in the past two weeks about upgrades too!! I am still waiting for a response about this morning after seeing these posts, i think if you have already reserved they should honor those prices, and if the prices were going to go up they should have told us ahead of time that way we could reserve with original prices!

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
