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

Corvette, I definitely think it's a good thing you rescheduled. Even if they DO lift the ban. because what if they didn't. And you waited too long. The odds of that June 10th date being taken by another put out bride are SO great. So this way you don't have to worry. You can spend the next month planning for an amazing wedding!! :)

You are soooo right! t still sucks but its true what if that date wasnt available i would be devastated to have to wait till next year. Also just heard from MOH & best Man they both were able to switch vacation days so everyone is in except for FI's sis inlaw. but we did lose DJ Bob as he is already booked for that day! Now whathuh.gif any reccomendations? should I just go with the resort DJ? if anyone did the poolside reception and used their DJ please let me know how they were. Last thing, what is the weather like from june7th to 21st? i have heard hurricane season is this really truehuh.gif??

Thank you all for the support, you ladies are amazing, i would be so lost right now without all of you! smile03.gif

i'm officially canceled although jazmin hasn't replied to me yet. no photography with claudia, no group excursion to coba with cancunvista tours, no poolside reception with DJ bob. no gazebo, no xel ha. nothing.

 

i couldn't even move my wedding date to sometime in june when i get back from my honeymoon cuz a lot of my guests said they wouldn't go. which i think is ridiculous because the cancunvista guy told me it's so sad that there isn't a single case in cancun but everyone is canceling.

 

there are more confirmed cases of swine flu in the USA than in mexico. mexico has more deaths and was the start of it all but still. the world health organization raised the pandemic phase to 5 which is a strong signal that a pandemic is imminent.

 

i'm trying to move the whole thing to jamaica now. found 2 resorts that have wedding openings for the same week i was going to mexico...in 8 days. one of them is the bahia principe there, unfortunately it's looking more expensive for the wedding part. now we'll see if my TA can work it so nobody pays extra...which is highly unlikely since we're not getting refunds. wish me luck i still get a wedding somehow

Oh my goodness. I am so sorry to hear all the bad news girls. I'm crossing my fingers for those waiting to hear and trying to reschedule. Try to keep your spirits up and think positive, I know it's easier said than done! As long as you get to marry your best friend that is really all that matters right?!

Hang in there!!

I am just so nervous about all of this... I am so sorry for everyone... and I feel like FI's father is going to hold this against us forever because he has been against the DW from the get go... I just hope this all passes.... I want to cry...

    • 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 :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
