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

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
