I am booking my wedding at GBP tulum in Feb 2011 and am looking into doing the dinner and reception pool side. It sucks that it can only go until 10:30 though. Does anyone know if it gets cool at night in Feb? I was wondering if I should move my date if I want to do the dinner outside?
Did anyone else get married there in feb - april. I am wondering if I have to be worried about the spring break crowd?
We got married on Feb 28 and the weather was perfect!!! We did the dancing outside and it was a perfect night.

Hi

Do you only have to pay per person if you are doing it poolside?
I have a package with them direct, which includes meal for up to 8 people. So is that all i will pay, the cost of the package, or is there additional costs? Thanks

TurtleWax or anyone other previous GBP brides, I'm wondering about the steaming of the wedding dress. Did you ladies get this done? And did they do a good job? Oh and do you remember what the extra cost was?

Originally when we were thinking of getting legally married down there in Mexico we were told 3 days, but maybe things have changed. Who knows!?!? :)
Alright, got my answer! Here's what Paloma said:
If it is OK with you - we could do your wedding on may 12th and you will have more time to review details on site with your wedding coordinator - in case you insist on may 11th, will be fine always that you prearrange all details by mail with your coordinator and do not make last minute changes..

So our official wedding date is now Wednesday May 12, 2010! That's fine with me. I figured I'd rather have the extra day in case I do want to change something when I get there or pick up anything extra in town. So excited to finally have a date!!

Hi ladies!

I tried searching for this but this thread has gotten so huge I don't have the patience! For those who have already been married, did you have to pay to bring in an outside photographer? I thought we didn't have to, but then I asked Karla and she wrote back saying yes, it was the $90 day pass. Just wanted to check that others got the same info.

Thanks :)

Question for the ladies that have already had their wedding at GBP! Did anyone use the resorts photographer Conrado? What was your experience with him and did the pics turn out nice. We are using him for our wedding and Im hoping that this is a good choice :-)

Thanks!

I got the same answer from her too. I'm just waiting to hear back if I will have to pay it twice since we're doing a TTD session the next day. I wonder if it would be better for us to just get them a room for the night? Have any brides done that at this resort?

Hi Turtlewax15...do you know if you had to pay for him to come into the resort? Or was that included in the price that you paid to the resort for him?

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
