    I am using Chinese Umbrellas in my wedding colors instead of flower for the bridesmaid's - save on wasting the flowers!:)

      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.

        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.. ?

                  @katiehenderson  there's a beautiful terrace to the left of the Villas terrace (it's technically on the Royal's property) is by far the prettiest and more private gazebo option.  The other "terrace" is brand new and is in the very busy pool area...
