I got them! Thanks for sending those over. Now to decide which one. They surely aren't like the cakes that you would find in Canada. ;-)

The cake was very basic that we got. It was one layer tres leche, and everyone really liked it. They did one layer so that there would be other desserts for people to have as well. We did the mixed grill reception by the pool and it was fantastic. The food was wonderful!!! I will be posting a full review once I receive the pictures!

We booked our reception immediately. They will only have one private wedding reception a night... and since that's what I wanted, we booked it right away. They also do first come first serve for choices in the restaurants, so you might want to book that right away too if you aren't doing a private reception.

As for the flowers, I LOVED our flowers. SO beautiful and I'm really glad we went with them. I actually sent our coordinator an email with a picture and asked if they were possible and how much they'd be. Same with my cake.

Thanks Joanna and Tlseege - I've asked the co-ordinator to book us for a private reception on the beach. I'll take pool side too I just want it to be private. I've received confirmation on the guitar trio and I think I'm going to go with just 1 teir too. Do you think I can request a certail colour of icing?

 

I can't wait to read your review Joanna. I haven't been able to find many of them so I've been feeling a little lost.

I don't think they do beach receptions, but the pool side is really awesome.

As for the colored icing, I think that they can. Mine was just white with silver accents and flowers... but I'm sure they could do it.

Ok pool works too. Did you get a DJ and all that good stuff for the reception too? I was thinking that we could just go to the hotel club if we wanted to party afterwards. I'm having and AHR too so at the risk of sounding cheep I'm trying to save where I can.

Hi everyone,

 

My fiancee and I would like to get married July 2010 and we are just starting our wedding planning. We are pretty interested in the Gran BP and I have found this forum so helpful so far!

 

We think we will have 30-50 guests and we would like to have the ceremony in the gazebo and the reception in a restaurant. I love the idea of the pool side reception, but i think it is beyond our budget.

 

Does anyone know if you can do speeches during the reception in a restaurant? We are thinking of renting out the disco for a couple of hours for dancing...

 

For those of you who have already had your weddings, did your guests organize their own travel? or did you have a travel agent book everyone? We have guests coming from Vancouver BC, Cairns Australia, Sacramento California and Dublin, Ireland so we are not sure what to do.... I have been looking at destinationweddings.com, a website where they book everything with you, contact the resort and set up a wedding website for you. has anyone used them or heard anything about it?

 

Finally, we are trying to decide if we should stay at the akumel, tulum or coba section of the resort. any suggestions?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
