2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Hey girls, trying to keep everyone updated as I hear back on WC questions since this site is more reliable than her...

 

I was told that YES there is an extra $5 per person charge for cocktails at the cocktail hour. And yes I did reply with a smart ass remark that cocktails are by definition made with liquor and a mixer, and that "cocktail hour" implies a full bar. ;) Yep, my WC will hate me by the time I make it to Cancun.

 

Also I was told there are no examples of the videographer... maybe we can find a bride on the boards who has one she can share with us?

So we did not give him too much guidance and he was great.

 

That's great to hear.  I'm thinking of booking with them as well.  My FI and I are not music people either so we'll be trusting the DJ to do what he needs to do.  

 

Is the DJ your MC as well?  If not, who did you have as your MC (host)?

Thanks! That is exactly what I was hoping to hear :)

It's dusgu

Haha! You're funny! Its crazy how resorts play on words. It's disgusting how resorts play on words!! I was always led to believe that $10 was the 3 appetizers and open bar since I'm now having to pay extra for every person over 20 for the ceremony and champagne! These people are sneaky!!

I used the resort videographer! I had the catholic ceremony and had them there to just capture the mass. He did an awesome job- I was very pleased. It started with the background being a Jason Miraz song with everyone gathering to te church and setting everything up, then included the entire ceremony with audio from the ceremony and ended with us taking pictures by the chapel set to some music. I thought it was really nice and well worth the money. We got married on Thursday and got the DVD by Saturday afternoon.

Hello ladies! It's so nice to hear positive reviews from the new brides. So many of you all chose the Gran Caribe and have had great experiences. I am getting married at the royal...anybody here get married there or have any experiences with them? I'm sure it will be pretty much the same thing just wondering if anybody has any experience with them?

Thanks Ladies

Christian

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
