    Can't figure out how to post.  I hope this one works.  I just found this website a few days ago.  Wow! Wish I had know about it sooner.  I am getting married in a few weeks at the Catholic Chapel at Gran Caribe.  I was only told to bring the paperwork from the priest.  Nobody said anything about the items for the Mexican traditions.  I have been trying to get ahold of wedding coordinator at the Hotel for a few weeks and have not received any emails in return.  I was waiting for the hurricane to pass, but still no word back.  Have others had trouble with getting in contact with wedding coordinators?

      When is your wedding scheduled for? Sometimes when you have a further away date i guess they see it as less of a priorty. But you can always email the church directly to ask. The mexican wedding traditions are not required for the mass, i am actually chooing to not do them during my ceremony, but others have to chosed to do so. I simply decided not to, because i did not want to have to worry about finding out the details of it, bringing all the items, and making sure i have godparents/sponsors for it. Either way i belive the church is fine with it. Who is you coordinator?

          I am getting married 11-19-11.  I was just told today that I have to move my reception due to damage from the tropical storm.  I was suppose to have it on the terrace, but now have to have it in a ballroom at a different resort.  I actually do not know who my Wedding coordinator is because I have had 3 and they keep changing on me.   Glad to know you do not have to do the mexican traditions because I do not have time to find all the items, etc...

                Is it the onsite coordinator they keep switchingon you, or the other one? Have you made final payment yet? I would suggest calling them directly, with your wedding being so close. What resort did they change you to?

                  I was not happy about the move to a different resport-I can't remember the name started with an X.  I emailed my wedding coordinator Mariana and she found two alternate sites that I am happy with.  They are both outside and one at the Royal and other at the Gran Caribe, so I feel much better today.  I thought I was going to have my wedding in a ballroom, which made me so sad considering I was flying all the way to Mexico for the nice weather and have to be stuck inside for my reception sounded so depressing.  I am back to being excited and not freaking out anymore.

                    I am having my wedding 11-18-11 and I was also never told that there was damage either and mine is planned for the terrace.  I think I am on the Rooftop Terrace...which is Albatross.  I'll have to double check! 

                     

                    I wish we would have known we'd be there the same time so we could have planned with each other!

                      Hi!! Just wondering if you had programs and what songs you picked out for everything? 


                      Thanks for your input!
