One question - did you have to bring any of the decorations for your wedding site? It looks so pretty with the turquoise fabric - did the wedding planner actually have all that for you?

Thanks Jessica!
I actually DID bring that blue fabric with me. It's 10 yards of satin fabric which I bought at my local craft store (Hobby Lobby). It was $2.99 a yard, plus a 40% off coupon. I would do it again in a heart beat!!

As for the regular room and the junior suite... BIG difference!
The regular room was two twin beds that could be pushed together and a tiny table with two chairs. The Junior suites are a king size bed. And then it has a seperate seating area with a couch and table and chairs. It was 100% needed when we were getting ready for the wedding. It was so much bigger. Plus with my neice they needed the extra room so that she could actually play inside the room in the shade!
Tlseege, I LOVE the way you set up the ceremony site. I'm thinking i'll do the same and purchase 10 yards of extra fabric prior to leaving. The extra colour looks gorgeous against the beautiful backdrop of the sea. I also like the idea of purchasing extra flower arrangements for the path. Did you coordinate the extra flower arrangements with Yuritzia before leaving for Mexico or a couple days before the wedding?

Hey Gals,

Just wanted to say Hello! I am a newbie to this, so don't mind my numerous questions, although I have pretty much just bugged Trisha since I met her through Trip Advisor first and she was the one to recommend this site and forum! Thanks Trisha. It is awesome to know that I am not the only one going a bit bridezilla on occasion when these Gran Bahia Principe coordinators don't respond quickly! I am getting married in the akumal part on November 7th, 2008. I can't wait! It sounds like everyone who has done it already, is fully satisfied with their wedding there. I am glad and feel so reassured now!

How cool! That is awesome! We will have to share some drinks afterwards huh! I will be there from November 3rd to November 17th. When are you arriving? How is your planning going? By the way are you a nurse too? If so that is a crazy coincidence!

We will be there from Nov 5 through 13th. I am a nurse. I work in a medical ICU/ CCU in Pittsburgh. Most of the stuff for Mexico is done. I'm not getting crazy with decorations for Mexico. Just have to finish up my OOT bags. We should definitely meet up for a drink.

    • 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.
