Hi all! Was wondering if anyone can help me with planning the gran caribe wedding. We are thinking July 2018 and are a bit worried if anyone can help me answer some questions that would be great as I am a total stress ball now.

 

Reception ends at 9 so they suggested we do ballroom inside then after.. honestly the ball room is soooo ugly how can I make this place look beautiful ? That carpet n ugly wall decor lol

 

How was food? It's really hard to get these answers from the hotel. Is it buffet? How is it?

 

Djs hair makeup video photographer recommendations?

 

Having chapel catholic ceremony. How was English mass?

 

Hotel looks so small scared it's going to feel too crowded is that so?

 

No swim up bar which is weird? Do they have fun activities like the foam parties ?

 

How hot do you think it'll be? I'm terrified about this!

 

Please help me! I also started to look at kakua in Punta cana but it seems weird that guests need to get transports to the restaurant but looks so beautiful

Hi there

 

I am a wedding planner and have been to this resort.  I can answer a few of your questions.  The food is amazing and you should be able to have a buffet or plated dinner and the resort should show you your options.

 

The hotel is small, but has an amazing beach.  Are you aware that they are upgrading the hotel to a Panama Jack?  which will increase it's look and value.  In July because it is down season you should have no issues with crowdedness, it should be good.  you are aware that is rainy season right?

 

No, they don't have those kind of parties as that is not what kind of resort it is.  It is very family friendly and laid back.  That could change when the transformation happens to Panama Jack as their brand is much more relaxed.

 

Don't be terrified, but don't try to do it all on your own. If your budget permits, higher a wedding planner.  they can walk you through all the details and make sure everything is done for you.

Thank you so much for your reply. I'm so confused too because she has said that we can't have a plated dinner outside. I'm really worried that the ball room will look tacky. & I didn't know it was rainy season a few places I called told me it's been raining from March on so it can all depend on just Mother Nature. I'm now looking into the kakua in Punta cana as it looks to me to be more organized and so beautiful and even looks cheaper then gran caribe just the thought of having people go to another place for my wedding bugs me.

I didn't know know about the panama jack what is that exactly

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
