    Hey, I am booked for 5/10/13 at the GCR. Ceremony will be in the Chapel with a private reception on the Villas Terrace. I feel like it's so far away! Looking forward to talking to other brides getting married at one of these resorts. :cool:

      I'm so happy you started a 2013 Gran Caribe Real/Royal Cancun Brides thread.  We are booked for 2/16/13 at Gran Caribe Real.  Our ceremony will be held at the Oceanfront Gazebo with our reception on the Villas Terrace.  We are waiting for the hotel rates to post so we can book our trip.  I have my STD postcards and will mail out to my guests within the next 2 weeks.  I honestly believe the time will fly by before we know it.

        I have been looking at STD's and am dying to send them out, but I think it's still a little too early for us.  I'd love to do passport invitations.  I'm not much if a DYI bride so I've been looking into sites where I could buy them..lol.

          I ended up getting mines off Magnet Street (mexico tiles themed suite).  I like them because you can personalize it down to your wedding colors.  Esty has some great passport and boarding cards.  I was looking into doing them as well but decided that I did not want to spend the extra money on this.  I'm still debating on if I will do welcome bags.

            Hey ladies. Congrats on your wedding! Mine's next month. We will have our ceremony in the chapel as reception in Villas Terrace. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. 

             

            Emily11386, I'm not much of a DIY bride so after searching through numerous sites, I got mine done by Concepts & Technology. They're a company in the Philippines so I communicated with them through email (they speak english) and could not have been any more happier with my invitations. The quality of the invitation feels like actual passports, not like paper or even cardstock and they were about $3ea invite, which included everything you see in the picture I attached. Here is a link to their page with more examples of their work- http://conceptstechn...terstitial=1&u=

            Babigirl21, I'm working on our OOT/Welcome bags right now. They include net drawstring backpacks as beach bags, survival kit w. 1st aid kit and meds and ear plugs and crest mini tooth brushes and electrolyte packets, playing cards, mini inflatable beach ball, hotel key/tip card holder with a mexican spanish translation guide. Not sure if I should fill it with anything else. I originally planned on filling it with more things that I find once I'm there but now I'm not so sure if I'll want to do so when the time comes. haha.

              KernsWR, Those passports look great! I'll definitely check out the site. I got a great deal through living social.com this week. $10 got you $50 to spend on vista print, so I'm going to look there to see what we can do for save the dates. Also I'm debating about sending the save the dates out a little bit earlier than I planned since we know 2 couples we are friends with who recently got engaged. I'd hate for them to plan it for the same weekend as us! Lol
