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

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Just thought I'd let you all know my wedding went AMAZING!!!

 

Karla was our planner, she was great.

 

The Tulum beach location is AMAZING. (We stayed at Akumal and I was slightly upset when she said we had to use Tulum beach location, but I thought it was better then the akumal location not as windy and more private.)

 

Poolside reception is the way to go, all the guests had a great time. We went for 3 hours. well worth the cost.

 

Also I know a lot of people are freaking out about the photography and the new rules. We were planning on using the hotel photographer from the begining and we honestly couldn't have been happier with our photos. Absoultly Amazing. We had Jorge and he was such a great guy, easy to work with and he took such great pictures, all our family and guests were amazed. I totally recommend him.

 

Also we got the videographer as well...again I recommend it, great keep sake :)

 

We did the Mayan Blessing ceremony, amazing. We did our legal ceremony the day before we left so we wanted something else down there and it was such a great choice. I havent really read about other people doing this so we didnt really have a clue what we were getting into, but it was more amazing then we could've imagined.

 

At the airport of course out of all our guests (35) we were the only ones who got the red light (myself and my new husband!!) they didn't care about all our stuff for the OOT bags and favors I had one whole suitcase for just that stuff, I had the recipts but they didnt ask or anything. But we thought it was funny out of everyone we got the red light.

 

If you guys have questions I'll happily answer them!! Also if you want some pics of the amazing work Jorge did I can eventually email you them...I just havent loaded them on my computer yet!

 

Also thank you so much to all the previous brides for the infomation you were able to pass down :) :) :)

Welcome back JaimieJ! I would love more info on the Mayan Blessing as that is what we're doing. There's not alot of reviews about this type of ceremony there so whatever you can tell me would be helpful!

Yes I did have a DJ, the one the resort provided. He didn't have much new music but a great variety! Just make sure you bring important songs you want played, if you go with them.

The ceremony is about 30-35mins long and be prepared to have seeds/flowers sprinkled over your head, they will fall in your hair and they did in fact fall down the front of my dress. which was kinda funny.

Also be prepared for them to ask you to say something before you exchange rings. we had nothing prepared so we just kinda winged it with "I love you."

Also be prepared to drink a little cup of tea. Don't worry it's not gross, just a little bitter kinda woody tasting.

Our guests ended up standing thoughout the entire ceremony as noone told them to sit. At the begining of the ceremony everyone faces all four directions so everyone has to stand but after that you should tell them they can sit (maybe just tell you guests before they can sit after you face all four directions).

When you throw the flower petals in the water hold your dress up or dont walk out too far. I totally didnt even think about it and the bottem of my dress got wet and covered in sand but it dried quickly, you can't tell in my pics. I didn't mind but incase you have a super fancy dress or something just a heads up!

I think thats all I can really prepare you for. It's an amazing ceremony and just enjoy the moment.

    • 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.
