    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
