  1. Hey looking for input on photo booth rentals near playa for my November wedding. Anyone have any feedback on quiroo events? Found them on Facebook. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  2. Hey Georgina congrats on the upcoming wedding! Hope you share your story and review after ???? which resort are you staying at? I know if any guest is at akumal or sian kaan they automatically get privilege to all 4 resorts but I believe I also remember reading that about the wedding packages for at least the bride and groom. I think the increase package means more access to family of the bride and groom. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk Thanks again kat I'm just in convo with the resort to do a set appetizer and dessert with the meat swords. I just got the options for the set appetizer and I have a funny question, what is a Russian salad? Lol when I Google it soo many different pictures pop up mainly a chopped salad with a creamy dressing is this what it is? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  3. Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review ???? I have a few questions, What did you play your music on for the ceremony I saw a few brides talking about an app or something? Where did you order your personalized sunglasses from? I am also privatizing the grand tortuga restaurant, don't really want people to have to go up to the buffet so I'm talking to them about a set menu but would also like the swords. I was just planning on using the alloted time (4 hours) plus maybe adding on an hour and doing all of the dancing in the tent, I do like the idea of the pool side dance but don't really want to pay more.. I really like that you said they included some decorations in this option as I was thinking of renting some from a local vendor. I was wondering how much you paid for the pool reception after? Do you have pictures of your tent set up? Your picture you attached looks lovely but I can't seem to open the rest ???? Thank you again! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  4. Hey I'm close to the gta and looking for a seamstress I'm assuming you found one your wedding is getting soo close!! Any recommendations? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  5. I agree anytime between November to April is good with mid to late April starting to get very hot! The prices in February and March can get more pricy due to lots of travellers with March break for kids and universities in February. I just picked a general time frame and went with the cheapest date provided from my travel agent. Good luck! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk

    Hair Accessories And Shoes!

    Hey jamiemccallion have you figured out what your doing yet? My mother in law is insisting on me wearing a long veil but I at most would like only a birdcage veil or just a hair accessory/flower crown. I am wearing bear foot sandals for my ceremony and a jeweled type sandal for the reception. ???? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you kat that's awesome information ???? I hope you had a great day I'm following your other review can't wait to hear more and maybe pictures! This may sound strange but I think I met your father in law when I was in Mexico (feb 25-march 6) at the tulum round bar I was on my way from my meeting with the wedding coordinator who was yours as well ???? he seems so nice. He told me about his new daughter in law that has Russian family so they had a nice Russian salad appetizer at the grand tortuga. That's why I started thinking about this restaurant! Lol Anyways small world he said your wedding was wonderful ???? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  8. Looking for advice on wedding dinner choices. I am staying in akumal for my wedding in November and was recently provided with the menus to choose my dinner. My fiance is a pretty picky meat and potatoes kind of guy and I'm kinda disappointed in the options available. Thinking of using the Brazilian, la grand tortuga but wondering if anyone has any good suggestions for a group of about 30-35. I would love the BBQ options but can't wrap my head around paying that much money at an all inclusive resort ???? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  9. Which one did you chose kat I'm just trying to decide on what meal/restaurant to pick. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  10. Hope this works, someone had posted this on a Facebook group I follow Grand Bahia Principe Lovers. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk Here is another.. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk Video Packages 2016.pdf Photo & Video packages combined 2016.pdf
  11. Thank you @jamiemccallion for your advice! I'm getting a little overwhelmed with choices and it's hard when I like something I can't try on. I see that you are getting married at the grand bahia as well I'm going in November 2017! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  12. I am currently thinking about going shopping for wedding dresses and I was hoping to spend in total max $1000 with potential alterations ect included. I found a dress online from a reputable company I love but can't get past not being able to try it on. Am I crazy to think I can walk into a bridal store and find a nice dress within my budget? I also have a question about bridesmaid's dresses. I am in love with the idea of convertible dresses as they seem to be good for multiple body types but sometimes they don't look the most flattering due to how the fabric drapes. I have a bridesmaid who is having a baby in August and with my wedding in November I really want her to be comfortable and not have to stress about it fitting. I was wondering if anyone has used the company show me your mumu, I love there bmd but there sizes only go up to xxl which doesn't even seem very large on the sizing guide. Thanks for any input!

    Planning A Destination Wedding In Mexico Nov 2017

    Hello congrats! I am also planning a November 2017 wedding in Mexico! I am going through a travel agent and I find them helpful, mine has a certification in wedding planning as well so bonus with making sure we have all the details getting closer to crunch time. She was also willing to make a website for us and posts info on it as we need. Another advantage of a travel agent is they can get you a group discount, depending on travel company and number of guests, like air transat every 21st guest is free stay or travel. For prices I am looking at a 4.5/5 star the grand bahia akumal and was quoted 1545 all inclusive from Toronto. Just to give a ballpark for wedding packages my Resort start at 1400 and go up to 3500.

  14. Look into the grand bahia or riu resorts. I have been to both in Punta Cana, Mexico, Costa Rica and Jamaica and they are all very nice resorts with options for both all ages and adults only. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
  15. Hey I'm not sure how to send you the link but the link but look up either The official grand bahia principe planning thread Or The grand bahia principe planning forum Both are compiled with thousands of pages of information from past brides In the official one if you go back to.the 1st page there is a ton of info. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk Ooh I'm sorry I thought you were asking about mexico. But it might be helpful anyways ???? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using Tapatalk
