Just got engaged and our wedding will not be set until 2016. Looking for a catholic wedding ceremony in cancun, so far I have my eyes on the Gran Real Caribe. Anyone here had their wedding or booked their wedding there as well? I am new to this destination wedding and the first of my family to be doing this. I know I still have a lot of time but I know how time flies and I just want this planning to be as organized as possible. Any of you guys who had or will have destination wedding at the same resort or some place else can give me a head start on this, that would be great! =) (STD, photographers, florist, makeup,wedding packages, bookings etc.) thanks!

Congrats and welcome to BDW! You will, as others have said, find tons of information and tips and advice here, and everyone is more than willing to share!

 

i would highly recommend that you spend some time reading. There are forums I know for Gran Caribe Real that you should go through. I would wager that whatever you're asking, someone already has and you will find the answer posted here. Everyone runs into the same or similar issues. The same with your vendors - photographers, etc. You will need to find out your resort's policies on outside vendors and what their fees are if any. Some resorts will charge as much as $800 to have someone onto their property so check things out first so that if there are any fees, they don't come as a surprise to you.

 

There are many wonderful, talented photographers in the Cancun - Playa del Carmen corridor so research is your best friend. Read the reviews here to see what past brides have said. Check their websites. they all have different styles so you will need to see what appeals to you. Then figure out what you want and what your budget is then start getting in touch with them to see what their availability might be. Some won't book 2 years in advance, others will.

 

Lots to do to keep you busy but will also help as you mentioned to keep you organized.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

There are a few of us here already planning for 2016... You aren't alone! It will be here before you know it- so the more you can plan early the less stress down the home stretch! Welcome!
