Ok. No worries at all. I understand you completely. They should tell you how does it work from the begining. And the reason I still didn't answer is because I don't know exactly how this forum works. Wen I tried to post my wedding date (November 30th) An error message popped up saying something like my posts are being held because i'm new at the forum. 

I was very concerned and stressed out before too about the resort photography, specially 'cause I saw some bad examples too at the begining. I was just trying to calm down all brides about this isssue right after I saw their recent job because I understand we (all brides) don't want our best day memories turn bad. What I was told and now I confirm following Sarah's post is that they have new photographers and thanks god they're professional. So we should stop getting panic.

Sorry if I went in a bad way into you. I'm not criticizing you because you have a problem with them. I just feel that we all are now tranquil abut this important matter and your posts keep making us nervous again. That's all. 

 

By the way, thank you for the Dj e-mail info. And hope you can solve the matter with GBP. Cheers.

Everyone of your post is defending/praising Arrecife.  Could it be that you work for them?  I noticed that you didn't answer when your wedding would be, yet your next post is criticizing someone who questions Arrecifeâ€s services.  Also, who would I be a vendor for?  And why would a vendor in Mexico's screen name be thaodao.  This is obviously a Vietnamese name.  

 

I am simply upset that GBP sent me a document that stated Arrecife's services are optional, then less than 3 months to my wedding; I find out that I must use them.  I feel that GBP should let me know about this policy when I booked in January 2010.  Not only would this be professional, but is common courtesy.  This is the most important day of our lives and considering all the negative feedback that Arrecife has received in numerous forums, I think my concerns are warranted.  Being a soon-to-be bride yourself, why would you dismiss another brideâ€s concern?

 

Sarah, I have pics of the beach if you need and gaby@rivieramaya,  DJ Bobâ€s email is boradem@aim.com.  I wish you all the best.

what about OTHER outside vendors, like makup and DJ's....   Will we be allowed to outsource them still??

 

I'm hoping to do the Akumal Beach, I really love the look of the gazebo, but the reason I always wanted a DW was to get married with the sand between my toes, and be part of the elements and nature around me!

Truth be told, I don't want to stay on the Tulum side, and FH is adament that Coba is WAY too far from the beach for him, though for me the Coba section is where I'd really like to stay!!

 

How many ceremony sites are there at the GBP, all I know of is Tulums Gazebo, and Akumals Chuppa on the beach...  IS there more??

I am so excited! My wedding date is FINALLY confirmed for April 6th, 2011 at the Akumal beach hammocks location. I can't wait to start booking everything in. I already started working on my boarding pass invites. haha

Our vacation package from Canada is only for the Tulum or Coba resort, so which one would you recommend staying at? I'm so happy that I can still get married at the Akumal beach location, despite not staying there.

Do you have your dinner and reception at the same place as your wedding or do you have them where you are staying? Just curious. I thought I read somewhere that you had to have your dinner and reception where you were staying.

Thanks!

Hi Abbie32,

I'll be at the restort at the same time as you! I am getting married on April 1, 2011, but will be at the resort until the 8th. When do you arrive there? Were getting married at the Akumal Hammock location too, and then a poolside dinner & reception at Akumal were we are staying.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
