      Hi Girls! Just wanted to say hello and jump into the conversation if I can! We just decided on Gran Caribe/Royal because of the Catholic chapel onsite. We are looking at a few dates right now, so nothing in stone yet. I'm excited to hear about everyone else's plans!

            Welcome txbrideinmexico! The chapel is what drew us in to the Gran Caribe to begin with as well. We were happy to be able to still have a religious ceremony while being able to have the wedding we wanted (destination wedding). It was a good compromise. :)

                Thanks everyone!

                 

                We are looking at a date in May 2013 right now which is very soon, but it happens to work with all the schedules we are trying to work around... So much to do if we go with that!

                 

                Where are yall having your receptions? I was told the options for our date are a ballroom, the terrace or the beach.

                 

                Alicia, I can't wait to hear all about your site visit! We are not planning to do one so any information is hugely appreciated! :)

                  Whichever location you choose, make sure you ask the hotel about back up locations for bad weather. We shot several weddings in April and May last year. April tends to be warm and dry, but the end of May was pretty wet.

                   

                  One hotel was prepared for the bad weather, another was not and it was a long wet night for the wedding party.

                   

                  So, ask now if you are getting married during the months when it tends to rain (late May - October).

                   

                  Good luck,

                   

                  M&J

                    Does anyone know how good they are with large groups? Im looking at 40-45 people now which i had no idea since many said they couldnt make it and now they are joining us. My coordinator doesnt sou d too happy and is pushing me to get the ultimate luxury package when i dont think its needed. I just wanted to pay the $10 a plate extra for the guests since it would work out cheaper anyway.

                       Hey Kaitlyn, I had seen a bride recently in one of the forums who had her wedding and had about 100 people come to her wedding. She didn't report any complaints about it...just a slow check it and maybe some complaints of where people were roomed. That's waaaay more people than what you have though.... they should be able to accomodate. We have about 30 people attending ours...
