    I know what you mean. Like I said, it seems like they are trying to get more out of you just because it's a "wedding'

        I was told the same thing, if you want a gap, you gotta pay the $400.

          I just had my wedding this past week, March 28, 2012.  It was beautiful.  I will try to post a full review and pictures by the end of the week.  I'm so happy I chose this resort.  I was a little worried at first, but everything was amazing.  The Royal next door was even more beautiful (very high-end), but very quiet.  It seemed like there were mostly couples hanging out there.  The Gran Caribe seemed like it was a little more fun and there weren't too many spring breakers there which I was worried about.  The older people attending the wedding had just as much fun as the younger people.  My only regret is not booking my hair/make-up appointment earlier.  My appointment was at 1pm.  I finished around 3pm.  My wedding started at 4pm at the gazebo.  I had under an hour to get dressed, and didn't get anytime for pictures before the ceremony.  I was very happy with my hair and make-up too.  I didn't bring a picture of what I wanted and they still did a great job.  I had clip in hair extensions put in and my fake eyelashes looked real.  It was very windy and my half up hairstyle looked pretty messy by the time we were done with the ceremony and photos.  I would recommend getting the presidential suite.  It was unbelievable!!  It covered the entire end of the 6th floor, there were 6 rooms below our suite so that should tell you how large it is.  We had our cocktail reception right in the room because we had only 12 guests.  They even brought a blender up to make mixed drinks and had food set up on the large balcony.  There were several staff members up there serving everyone and making drinks.  I couldn't have asked for a better wedding.
