Hi everyone,

 

We are pretty sure we want to get married here in November 2010. We've already stayed at the resort and loved it! I'm just wondering what's the best way to find out wedding date availability/book the date? We were hoping for the Akumal section. I've searched all through their web materials and I couldn't find it. I've thought about just calling, but not sure how effective that would be? Please point me in the right direction :-)

 

I look forward to joining in and planning!

Thanks for the great review! How did your guests get from the ceremony to the dinner and to the pool side reception? Also-which pool was the reception at and if they did not have the drinks you wanted at the pool side reception was it a problem to go to one of the bars? was there one close? thanks!

Terrra, I would definitely recommend calling (actually, having your travel agent call). You can also email Paloma... but sadly I don't have her email any more. I'm sure one of the ladies on here can help you.

Hi Terra,

Here is Paloma's email to get you date booked - groupsmx@bahia-principe.com

Paloma is the one in charge of the wedding coordinators at the 3 resort locations. Like Trish mentioned, the best way to reach the resort however is to call. I emailed to book my date and when I got no reply in 48 hours, I called and booked over the phone, then got an email confirmation from Paloma right after. Just call the main hotel number, and ask for Paloma tell them you'd like to book a wedding. The front desk people speak decent English.

I also got married in the Akumal section and loved it!!! I would recommend the beach location. Yuritzia used to be the wedding coordinator there, but I think there is someone new now. Good luck with your planning!!

Our wedding was at 2pm and the dinner wasnt until 6pm. So our guest had a few hours to kill. There was a trolly that went by every 10min. So the guests took that trolly back to their rooms. Our guests rooms were right next to the Turtuga where we had our dinner. There was also a trolly that would have brought us to the dance...but we walked. Our pool side dance was near the main pool at Tulum. I dont think any of our guests went to another bar to get drinks because we all drank beer. But the lobby bar was on the other side of the huge pool, so that wouldnt have been a problem. Everything went wonderful. I had a lot of worriesbefore hand, but the wedding coordinator really knew what she was doing.

    • 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.
