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

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
