  1. Thanks! It's crazy, when I got married last year there was TONES of brides that were married at the resort we were going to go to before the damn swin flu!!! I wonder if I can't find people because it's a newer resort? Thank you! I will tell her that they really enjoyed it there!
  2. Hi ladies! I have a friend that is gettting married at this resort Jan 2011. I've been all over this site looking for information that I can give to her. When I had my destination wedding this websit was EXTREAMLY helpfull. Is there anyone out there that either is getting married here or has gotten married here?? Thanks!!
  3. Well Ladies I sooo feel you pain and frustration. I was supposed to leave on May 2 for the Beautiful Mayan and my dream Gran Bahia Wedding. On April 28th I received a phone call from my TA stating that all Sunwing flights to Mexico were cancelled. I was a devastated mess. So I sat for over 2 hours on hold trying to find ANYTHING. Because of Conquest going under all the possible flight were full. I had 38 people to get somewhere. To top it off this was the only time that we could go. No one would be able to book time off until next year and my FI and I didn’t want to wait. Sunwing thank god added a flight to Cuba. I was able to transfer everyone over. I had 6 people book through Air Transat and they didn’t add extra flights to Cuba and they still are fighting with them to get their money back. I went from having my year long planned dream wedding to 1 day of planning and I’m soo thankful that they could do something in 1 day. It wasn’t my dream wedding by any means but it was legal. The ladies did everything possible to make it special for us. I wish you American friends on here could have that option of Cuba. I know with the DR, Bahamas’, Hawaii and Jamaica they have so many things you have to have to be married and it’s so expensive for you guests. I wish you all the best and my fingers are crossed that the travel advisory it lifted so you can have your dream weddings!! My now husband has promised on our 5th wedding anniversary we WILL be going to Grand Bahia and I will have my dream! All the best to you all!!

    Dumb question

    Thanks!! I've been looking at how you did it!! I'm going home tonight to hopefully write a review and try to get some photos up! I'm very computer dumb!! HaHa!
  5. Hi Ladies.... I hope all travel starts in June like promised to you all. I was one of the devastated brides that had her dream wedding crushed on April 28 and spent the day scrambling to find another flight and place to be legally married. I ended up in Cuba at Bella Costa in Veredero, a year of planning down the drain to only having 1 day and not one picture to go by! Honestly someone was looking out for me! I’m very fortunate to be married at the moment. It wasn’t as lavish the Bahia, it wasn’t my dream but it was legal! I wish I could have been a Bahia Bride. My husband has promised me that we can go to Tulum for our 5 year anniversary and do a renewal of vows. I can tell you Jazmin at Tulum is the best!!! She is very quick with the e-mails, at least once a week she would get back to me! I wish you all the best!
  6. I just arrived back from my wedding in Cuba I want to write a reveiw and upload pictures. Is there a way to conect a thread here with the review in the review area?? It's hard to find things on Cuba in the Wedding Review area and I want people to be able to find it easily. Thanks All! Kacey

  8. Well ladies what left to my heart is breaking into even smaller pieces for all of you. This has been the worst week of my life!! I dreaded the phone call I received from my TA saying that our flight has been cancelled. We leave on Sat!! She searched for ANYTHING for this week-end and because of Conquest going under EVERYTHING is booked. My heart fell I was devastated. Yeah it’s not a natural disaster or a death…but in one sense it was the death of our beautiful year long planed wedding of my and Johnny’s dreams. So I let her go and called my FI and we cried on the phone. Sad I know. Our TA called me back and said that they have added a flight going to Cuba because of the cancelled Mexican trips do I want to go there. So I said to hold all of the seats that I needed and started to call all 38 people. The only other option was to have a credit!! Can you believe that!! A credit not our money back!! We got everyone on the plane and now it’s trying to find out if we can even get married!! If not we will have a renewal ceremony and then come home and have a private marriage here. I honestly don’t know if I’m coming or going!! It’s day 3 with little sleep and I’m quite the bitch!! I’m snappy at work and at people! It’s terrible! So I hope you all will be able to go somewhere and make the best of it! I feel bad for Jazmin she spent so much time helping me plan this!! I’m crushed but optimistic on what we can do in Cuba! I have my fingers crossed for the rest of you May Brides!
  9. Of all the friggin’ luck!!! My wedding party of 38 leaves on Sat for my wedding at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum. I’m so friggin’ stressed out!! I’ve had 8 e-mails, 10 phone calls, and 3 text messages all at work!! I’m praying that this is the worst of it and things will start to slow down. I have the worst luck EVER!!

A few people said after eating dinner for two hours there was no room for the cake. So I figured we'd have it at the reception so people can enjoy it later.
  11. Well I’m now VERY STRESSED!!! I have to say reading this thread up to now I have felt for you some that where having problems with different issues and people with issues. I have had a really easy ride. Until now!! My MOH is separating from her husband, two of the girls dresses don’t fit, and two other couples that were traveling with us are now splitting up too!! My one BM that her dress doesn’t fit I haven’t talked or heard from her in 2 months…after calling and messaging her. I’m about ready to have a break down!! Man I honestly can’t believe this. My bridal shower is next week-end and it needs to be moved and I still have a crap load of things to get ready for the wedding but I feel horrible asking my MOH to help me because of her situation. How can I be happy about my next step when her world is crumbling?? Help…and thanks for listening/reading!!
  12. Wow! Thank your for posting. I'm glad to hear that there is a back up plan if the weather doesn't cooperate. Your Signature picture is beautifull I love it with the clouds rolling in on the side mixed with the beautifull blue sky.
