I am also from Vancouver and will be getting married at GBP in Feb 2011. I was originally thinking about having the ceremony on the beach on the Tulum side, but after seeing the video posted erlier, I am thinking about the Akumal beach. Does anyone know exactly were that ceremony in the video was. Is there a particular beach area that you have to ask for to get it there?

If you want to see an awesome short video of a wedding at the Bahia Akumal resort check out the blog of the video guy we are going to hire: http://www.thecaptureblog.com/

Scroll down to the video of Chris + Cathy. It doesn`t say where it was shot, but I thought I recognized the resort and after speaking with the videographer on the phone, I was right :-)
OMG!!! FI and I just watched that video. That's our wedding location exactly! We're doing the hammocks too. It was kind of surreal seeing that video and realizing that it will be us in a few short months! I cried!!

It's called "the hammocks" on the Akumal beach side. It's called this because the rest of the time there's no weddings there, they have hammocks hanging from this structure :)

Here's a pic of the location we got from Eugenia who is the WC for the Akumal

We just got married there last week...it's called Cancha de actividades in Spanish..it's right by the activity pool, just further away! So nice and Eugenia is UNBELIEVABLE! Honestly, I just wanted to put her in my pocket and take her home..so professional, so much class. Love her! Best of luck to all the brides!!!

Hey ladies,

A couple of things:

 

We are getting married at BPT in 1 MONTH!!! I was told by our WC that our wedding location won't be confirmed until we arrive at the resort and have our meeting. Is this true for everyone else?

 

Also, I just wanted to give a heads up to those having a civil ceremony. I assumed that the package included all of the costs, but just found out that the blood tests are an extra fee. It costs $160US which is paid in cash to the dr........(he is making some good $$$!)

Hi TeNeil,
Do you have Jazmin? I confirmed where my wedding was going to take place in August. I as you know is getting married Feb 2, I hate when they give totally different information to each and every bride.
