          I think TheKnot.com has some kind of checklist for it. It won't be cut and dry but it can be a guideline. Maybe even googling "wedding to do list" or something?

            I just booked my wedding for March 28, 2012 at the Gran Caribe at 4pm.  I love the chapel, but we don't want to have a catholic ceremony so we reserved the gazebo for now.  They said we couldn't have a non-catholic ceremony in the chapel no matter how much extra money we offered. 


            Are any march brides worried about spring break?  Has anyone that did a site visit notice if the gazebo area is quiet?


            We also would like to hire our own photographer.  Did anyone find out if it was cheaper to get the outside vendor a room or do you still have to pay the $350 outside vendor fee?


            I read a post somewhere on this website about florists.  I'm now also considering getting my own flowers.  The post recommended MayaDisenoFloral.  The pictures looked great on the posts, he got great reviews, he was on-time, and stopped by days before the wedding to show girls samples.  I guess if you meet them at front gate or lobby you don't have to worry about outside vendor fees.

              Hello fellow gran caribe real brides,


              I have hit a bit of a slump. My future husband and I are getting married in January at the Catholic chapel. Afterwards, we will have a champagne toast, and a reception at one of the restaurants. Unfortunately, we will only have 10 guests so we can't have the private reception. I've always dreamt of having the opportunity to dance with my husband at our wedding. I have explained this to my coordinator, but she has said that it is not possible to do this without the private reception. Any ideas?? :(

                Hello Ladies,


                I am also a GCR 2012 bride. My wedding will be July 23, 2012, our ceremony will be at 4:00 p.m. in the chapel and cocktail hour and reception at the beach!


                Future Mrs. Heintz, I am debating taking my own photographer to our wedding. The photographer that did our engagement photos has quoted me a really good price. I really don't want to pay the outside vendor fee, so I might just say he is a guest and not mention him at all to the coordinator!

                  Hello my fellow Real Resorts brides!


                  I am actually getting married at the Royal in Cancun (on the beach), but my reception is at the Villas Terrace at the Caribe on 08.10.12!! I am super excited and have booked the date and times, and am now trying to figure out what our honeymoon plan should be so we can book the flghts/rooms!


                  I have also decided on a legal/civil ceremony. My WC told me we can do our own vows and add a sand ceremony. That is pretty rare from what I hear, so its worth it for me to have the wedding day ACTUALLY be our wedding day! ;)


                  Anyway, congrats to all of you!

                    Don't they let you do music for your cocktail hour, I believe you can extend it. Can they just make your cocktail hour after your reception? That way you can still dance.
