    Hey there Gals! And Congrats!
    I'm having my wedding at GCR 6/13/2014.
    I'm nervous as heck. I don't know what to expect. My family and friends are staying there as well. What are some of the bad reviews you guys have read?
    I'm having Catholic/luxury wedding. Ceremony in the chapel at 5pm, reception 6-7 on terrace, then moving reception to the ballroom.
    Has anyone had their's in the ballroom?
    I'm hoping that that they can set it up nicely and not look plain and boring.
    It is now February and it's right around the corner. I'm freaking out. =/
    I've read some stuff about the ceremony. About the lasso, the candle and the coins
    We I have to provide all of that?

    Any info helps. Thanks in advance.

     COngrats!!!

    I personally like the ballroom (its our plan B in case it rains)

    I think it will be nice if you decorate it with flowrs or DYI center pieces :)

    You do not have to do the lasso and coins etc... just let them know you dont want to do that. if you do , then you have to provide that.

    Keep us updated and post pictures! hope its beautiful!


    I'm wondering the same thing. Also, has anyone heard anything about hair and makeup at the hotel? Are they any good? 

     

    i read on this page that the AZUL spa is good!.. i suggest to make a search on it and book them in advance.. I know my mom and future mother in law will go with me to get make up/hair done. I will check with my bridesmaids but not so sure.. i think they can only take 3 at a time. 

    good luck :) i really hope for some insight to the decorations!

      I have a question about that rooming list document we have to fill out and send to our WC 60(?) days before the wedding. What if you booked through Expedia? And lots of my guests booked online e through different websites. They don't really give you a hotel booking confirmation number. Heck I don't even know my own hotel booking confirmation number. I've looked through receipts and itineraries, and have only seen my Expedia reservation code.

      Anyone else not use a TA and have the same dilemma?

      i think she means that the cocktail reception will be at the terrace (6-7) and then the party will be in doors (for 3- up until 1?)

      so you can have these different options if you book a coctail reception :)

        My question is because I have the same luxury package... my wedding is at the chapel at 4pm, followed by the cocktail hour on the beach (just beside the chapel) and then the reception at "Villas Terrace"  I was told that my cocktail hour was by ceremony location or reception location and If I wanted another location I have to pay extra...

        I wanted to stay longer than 9pm for my reception but I don't want to do it inside :(

        Unfortunitely, depending on the months you cant have your reception past 9pm on the terrace because of the turtle laying season. We are having ours in a ballroom, the terrace is beautiful but id rather have the reception go longer for our guests. =)
