Need Help! If I go with the Luxury wedding package, would I still be able to book the chapel?

    Lori, it seems that for a fee, you can have anything you want. You would have to confirm w/a real resorts WC, but I imagine that they'd let you "add" a ceremony in the chapel to your luxury wedding package. I am sure it's not included but can be added.

      Emily, you should be able to choose from the menu you sampled...I'd fight with them over that. When we had to change our package last minute, they made me go by the old rates/packages because I booked last year. The same should be true for your menu choices...

        Thank you everyone for participating in these forum. The discussion threads helped us with our decision. After five months of going back and forth, we finally put our deposit down for Gran Caribe.  Our wedding is Oct. 26, 2013.  It feels so real.

          We booked The Royal/Gran Caribe without doing a site visit first! I even surprised myself doing that and everyone thought we were crazy but we eventually went down and it was well worth the risk! We loved the resort and we are also getting married in the chapel, one of the big selling points for us too!


          I don't love working with the off-site WC now. I'm working with Elsa and she has gotten more and more delayed in responding to things and when she does never really answers our questions. It's frustrating! When we went down we met with Diana Rodriguez who is an onsite WC at the resort. We thought we would be able to work with her directly, but she said at this point we still have to price everything and confirm with Elsa. Very annoying!


          I can wait to hear about the wedding in January! So close!!

            I have a quick question that I wanted to confirm. The vendor fee of $350...it's not per person right? It's per vendor correct?


            For instance, my videographer is bringing 2 assistants so I would pay $350 for all three of them rather than $350 each of them right?

              It's supposed to be $350 per company, so you should only have to pay $350 for your photographer and assistants. They said this was the rule on when I did the webinar a couple of months ago. I would confirm that with the WC just to be sure.

                  I just emailed Diana asking if my two wedding guests that are also taking my pictures will be charged a vendor fee, I'll let you know how she responds!  It's per company though.  So if you had an outside photographer that also included videography, it would be one outside vendor fee.  If it was one outside photography company and a separate, outside videographer company, it would be two outside vendor fees totalling $700.

                    I had not noticed they changed the menu, but I did notice they changed the packages. We reserved the "Classic Catholic Wedding" which I can no longer find on the website (maybe I'm just missing it...?). They have Classic Wedding and Royal Catholic which includes things I don't want to pay for, i.e. a photogrpaher when I am bringing an outside one. I emailed this morning to confirm that we still get the old package/price.


                    For other girls in the chapel:

                    What is everyone doing for their ceremony music? I'm actually leaning towards the mariachis. My Mom says she's been to a Mariachi Mass before and it's actually really cool and traditional....


                    Also, have you been in contact with the priest? I just emailed him this morning and I'm not sure what to expect back from him. I have questions about the flow of hte ceremony and the rehearsal and generally would just like to talk a few times before the wedding. Has he been helpful for yall?
