Whooo Hooo!!!! I can FINALLY say I am an official GBH-Tulum Bride. Confirmed June 1, 2011. 1 guests booked so far. 

 

I have been "lurking" on this thread for almost 2 months. After a WHOLE LOT of chaos, and at least a little bit of Bridezilla, I can finally be official. You ladies are great!

 

I am working my way through this thread (4 days and 282 pages). I had been skipping around, but have now committed to the entire thread. I am glad that I did, since I found A Lot of valuable info.

 

Unfortunately (I think), Jazmin is my WC, so I know I am in for some bumps with communication. Fortunately I know to copy Paloma for ALL emails, and that is thanks to the wonderful ladies on this thread.

 

I plan to finish the thread today or tomorrow, and then start firing away with the questions.  Can't wait to be an "active" member, instead of "lurker". Lol

 

P.S. I promise all of my posts won't be this long, but I've just been waiting so long to post as an official bride.smile123.gif

There are 2 different types of Poolside reception you can have so make sure you know which one you're asking for and what you're getting with it.  I know Tsleege had a full reception poolside... that means dinner was also poolside instead of in a resort restaurant.  We had a poolside cocktail party, which was after the dinner at the resort, just speeches and dancing.  They're very different prices.

 

Welcome to all the new GBP Brides!

Welcome to the group! I'm an Akumal Bride, but I have been to the resort before and stayed on the Tulum side and loved it!

Congrats!

Hey! I'm unfortunately still waiting to hear back from my WC about some questions that I had about the reception, which I sent last Tuesday...starting to go crazy waiting as it's only 8 weeks away!

 

Just curious for those who used Arrecife Studio, which photographer did you have and how did you think they did? I have looked at the pictures on the facebook page and thinking I am liking Nestors pictures but would like some feedback from those of you who have actually used them.

 

Thanks! pinkie.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
