    So I had my wedding back in April. Resort was lovely and very clean. Drinks, activities were all 5*. Food on the other hand was by far the worst iv had at any resort in mexico. Sadly all my guests got sick on multiple occasions and we found ourselves eating across the street at the AMAZING italian restaurant. So when you go there bring lots of immodium and pepto. My wedding went so perfect and couldnt ask for a better day! Flora was my onsite coordinater and she had absolutely everything under control.my guests said the food at the wedding was the best at the resort so far..I on the other had couldnt eat since my stomach had been in knots from the past couple days eating resort food. One tip tho to save some cash do not..I repeat do not buy the lounge furniture they offer for 250. I wanted my wedding to be fun and relaxing and the resort took their crappy old beat up furniture from the lobby. The photo they showed me was beautiful white chairs with blue cusions anda nice table with a candle on it. I was pissed! It was a huge eye sore and no one sat on them. If your thinking about getting upgrades....dont....I myself am so bloody picky and want what I want for my big day and honestly they do better work keeping things simple because when they try to upgrade they make things look a little tacky...so the more simple decorations are much nicer. I had a hair and makeup trial done and it came out perfect the first time but when I went back on my wedding day it came out completely different and I brought the same pictures and everything lol I was ok with this because these girls are so talented! It was beautiful and it didnt move all day/night and it was pretty windy. Well all in all my day was perfect and I know your girls day will be the same! Congrats to you all and hope my info has helped a bit :) if you have facebook my name is kaitlyn mcevoy and iv made my wedding albums public if you would like to see!

    Hi Kaitlyn!

     

    Congratulations! Sounds like you had a lovely time. You look amazing and the back detail of your gown is gorgeous! I'm in process of putting my location and date on hold. Where did you have your reception? And what other upgrades did you get?

      Hello from Cancun....well I hate to brag but I think you ladies need a smile and a deep breath. We got married July 5! We are still in a blur. I started 6 months ago and did all kinds of crafts etc. had list after list. But it seems the day of was hectic I couldn't remember where salon was and almost Late. I don't remember if I took enough pics and was busy getting my self and daughter ready. But I will say this, it was raining and cloudy even thunder all week. It sprinkled while I was getting makeup. Then sun came out and it was perfect during ceremony and cocktail hour. I am so glad we decided to have reception indoors. We and guest were all ready to cool off. Just after we went in it poured down raining bad. The reception was suppose end at 10 and we all went outside for fireworks. No rain! The party was started and we ended up extending each hour until 12!!! The food was excellent, the service, the decor, cocktail hour, and ceremony are worth every penny. We had one couple at Royal and we never got to see them. We all 31 guest stayed at GCR. The service is great. The food was the best buffet or all inclusive we ever had. Until we got to Jard Rock. Lol so it's all good.

          Congrats on your wedding!  So glad the weather was good to you on your big day!  I'm curious to know what you served for dinner at your reception?  I'm in the process of choosing a menu and strictly going by the written descriptions provided....no pictures and of course, no sampling. 

           

          So any recommendation from you or any bride who already had their wedding and LOVED their food would be a great help.  Thxoxoxo

                  @Kelly718 I'm in the same boat.. I would have loved little patron bottles but it's seems a bit redundant.. with an open bar, who needs mini patron bottles?? So now I'm looking into beach themed wine stoppers, bottle openers and bubbles at Myweddingfavors.com Still.. Those patron bottles are really cute.
