2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Agreed--the flower thing is made so much harder when it's a DW...not only because it feels like a waste of money when people can't take the flowers with them, but also just getting answers and quotes from people over there!! :( I'm actually in the middle of a tug-a-war with my WC Katia because she decided to be out of the office for like 4 weeks and not answer any emails, so I emailed her supervisor and have been getting a slow trickle of answers from her; to get a quote from the resort florist has been a huge headache.  Katia's supervisor keeps sending these ridiculously big and expensive arrangements when I've already shown her pictures of my centerpieces which are small and could not hold an arrangement that big.  I had initially considered using Maya Floral, but after one exchange from Marvin, he never wrote back to me and that was months ago even after I sent follow up emails--it was super unprofessional so I will not be giving him my business.  I'm still considering just finding a different local florist and getting the flowers dropped off outside to avoid the fee and the all around expensiveness/unresponsiveness of the resort florist.

How are you guys getting all of this stuff down there? Shipping it?
Shipping will be an issue as you have to collect the items at customs and pay!! Also they can get delayed and lost a lot of the times - so I am brining it all in suitcases and giving some hopefully over to the guests coming from the same airport! But remember to bring invoices as anything of $100 per item may be an issue and you will have to ensure them you are not selling these items in Mexico and its for a wedding. Hope it all works out Also my WC went of 3 weeks vacation as well- wonder if they are restructuring because of the buy out from Hyatt at the Royal??

Hi everyone! I'm getting married at Gran Caribe Real in May 2014. I was wondering about the private reception. They told me for a private reception it was $15 per person for the people staying at Gran Caribe. Does anyone know if this $15 includes the set up (tables, chairs, white table cloths, silverware, plates, ext) & the food? Or is is $15 per person PLUS the price of the food?

Please let me know if you find any other florists in Cancun. I'm having the same problem with Maya Floral and other florists in the area. It just takes them a long time to reply. Maybe there's a timeline they work with? Like if your wedding day is 1 month away, then you're a priority. Otherwise they let you wait.. ?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
