Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I know its been awhile since I have been on the site. I leave in a week for our wedding and I am trying to make up the ceremony programs. We have choosen to use the Mexicain romantic music for the ceremony only problem is Yuritza won't email me back with the names of the songs and artists. She has only given me info about one song and that is for the recetional. I was just wondering how you other girls designed your programs when really we don't now what happens or in what order things go till we get down there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Over the next few days I hope to post a review. We had absolutely no problems with booking our ceremony or with our WC who was Karla. She always answered my questions within a day or two. Everything was wonderful.

Our stay at the resort was so good I'm actually going through withdrawal. As soon as I have a chance I'll write a quick review. Happy planning to those of you counting down the days.

That's so awesome it went well!!!!! I'm super excited to here how the Mayan Blessing ceremony went becuase that's what we are leaning towards for our ceremony! Did you get to choose what was said at allhuh.gif?? I just had no idea. I've really liked everything I've read about the Mayan ceremony.

For those of you already married, when did you do the cutting of the cake? I'm unsure if it would be better to do at the restaurant or at our poolside reception, or if we even have the choice...

 

Thanks a bunch!

We originally wanted to do it poolside but our WC suggested last minute we do it in the restaurant and I am glad that we did this way the entire time by the pool was just dancing.

Our dinner was at the pool, so we did it there. But I can see advantages both ways.

The restaurant would be nice because then the reception is just for the party. But if you cut it at the reception then people can nibble throughout the dance and also grab a piece on the way back to their room (that's what they did at mine).

I've decided to cut the cake at our pool reception. 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.

How about posting a full review in the reviews section, and then posting a link here for us? :)

 

Tranch, I had the same question about programs -- how do we get these printed if we don't even know what time the ceremony is going to be, or what exactly is going to happen. Ladies who already got married, did you bother doing programs and menus?

 

Also, was wondering if everyone got mini fridges in their rooms, or is that just a Golden Club thing? Also, what drinks are included with the all-inclusive... like, are margaritas included? Oh, here I go with the questions again... ok, last one for now... What are your restaurant choices if you're getting married on the Akumal side, and which do y'all recommend?

Hi Everyone!

 

So after an entire weekend of looking through this site, I finally got enough information that convinced me to actually do a destination wedding. I was on the fence, my fiance really wanted it. And I have since been in contact with Paloma at the Gran Bahia and it looks like there is availability for when we were planning to go away. I just wanted to thank everyone for providing so much information on here to help the newcomers out! Now that things are progressing I'm sure I'll have tons of specific things to post about and I'm thankful that there will be people here to help answer my questions!!

 

Thanks again!

 

Julie (Potential wedding date March 31, 2010 - Coba section)

I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
