Destination Inspiration: Gran Caribe Resort Cancun

Many brides wonder what their destination wedding day will look like – where will they get ready? Will everything happen in the same venue? What happens when the big day is over? At Gran Caribe Resort in Cancun, every little detail is taken care of with the assistance of on-resort coordinators and your Wedding Vacations planner, and the luxury amenities and romantic setting create the perfect ambiance for your destination wedding.

The Preparation

Beachside Spa at Gran Caribe Resort

The first step of your wedding day is the preparation – after all, every bride wants to look and feel their best on their big day! Gran Caribe has a top-notch spa with professional hair and makeup artists that will have you looking and feeling gorgeous. We suggest you bring along pictures of styles you like, or if you arrive in destination a couple days before your ceremony, book a trial run at the spa to fine tune the details. The spa also provides the perfect ambiance for you and your fiancé to relax and unwind with a couples massage before walking down the aisle.

The Ceremony

For a more traditional ceremony you can recite your vows in the Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel, the only oceanfront Catholic chapel in Cancun, which offers spectacular views and room for up to 70 guests. If a beach wedding is what you’ve always dreamed of, the Trade Winds beach venue can fit up to 200 guests with a beautiful ceremony archway.

The Reception

The Next Morning

You and your sweetheart can reminisce about your big day and enjoy the warm Caribbean sun against your skin while enjoying the spectacular ocean views as newlyweds.
