2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Lori,

For my guests flying in from Texas, they will pay about $500 roundtrip for flights. The room rates we got iwth the TA are pretty much the same as you can find online. The only difference is she got us $50 for the first $1000 spent, and then $50 for each $500 after that. The lowest grade room at GC will be just shy of $1000 per couple for four nights. So, a little less than $2000 per couple for four nights.

Thanks for the info! Hmm see that worries me because I don't want my guests paying no more than 1200-1300 the most. I'm wondering if its the resort, the location (Hotel Zone) or just Mexico itself. :( I don't know what to do. Just for a site visit this summer I'm getting quoted a ridiculous amount.

Us and our guests are paying just about $520 (jetblue) from NY in July. For the rooms we worked with Wendy who got us group rates by blocking off rooms. Those rates differ by which hotel (either the royal or gran caribe) and how many people you have in your room. They weren't cheapest rates I've seen (for instance my sister got a lower rate with flight/hotel on priceline than the group rates are), but the one good thing is they lock in the rate for you so in case the price of the hotel goes up you get that lower rate. I guess like anything it has its pros and cons, but that's the route we went.

 

We went down for a site visit the end of November for 3nights/4 days and paid just under $1200 each. We stayed at the royal.

It's hit or miss w/ the prices....1 of my friends paid less then 1k! (895) for each her boyfriend and herself for 6 days @ the resort, but i've been looking for that deal and cant find it. Most of my family and friends have paid anywhere from 1200 to 1600. It's def hard to even negotiate w the resort. They were quoting me more then expedia was showing for just the resort stay!! What might also be more expensive is the time of year you're getting married :( Dont worry your family and friends will make it happen!! There are def cheaper resorts so it's not Mexico or the Hotel Zone, it's Gran Caribe...

Does anyone know if Gran Caribe has a night club within the resort?  I'm not sure what we should do after 10pm.

Not a problem with hanging out with guests at royal.on night of wedding, everyone went to gran caribe after. There was a band there so we continued the party. Even our wedding guests who were not guts at either resort hung out with us into th wee hours.

Let's try that again....even our wedding guests who were not staying at either resort hung out with us at gran caribe into wee hours, after the wedding and reception. By the way our wedding was on 9/4/12. Half the guests stayed at Royal, others at Grab Caribe. About 4 stayed at outside hotels.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
