Harv- The mayan riviera is awesome and also this resortis awesome, we went to the MR last month and had an amazing time so we decided we would go back and get married there next year and return every year after that! also it is very close to alot of tourist sites like tulum,akumal, conzumel, playa del carmen, xel ha and xcaret!
Thank you very much. The photographer we chose was Dino Gomez. He's also on this forum. You can see the some of our pics on his website.

As far as March and spring breakers go... you'll probably have some, but the resort says they don't allow people under 21 to book rooms? Not sure how that is done.

But, one thing to keep in mind is that if Easter is in March it'll be really busy. So make sure your guests book early! Don't worry about crowds though... the place is so large that you never feel over crowded! You'll love it!

I have a question: I have a bad neck/back and have to sleep with a contour pillow and have a pillow top bed. I know at most resorts, the beds are hard as rocks and the pillows are flat. What are the beds and pillows like at GBP? We are staying on Tulum side, but I assume they are the same at all 3?

 

Should I just bring my pillow?

The beds are hard. With that being said, you can ask for a mattress cover / cushion thing that is supposed to be softer at the front desk. We never got around to it and were OK with the beds, but a few of our guests requested these and said it was a bit more comfortable.

Yes, we did the religious ceremony, but they still have you sign a certificate with two witnesses, it's just not the legal paperwork.

LOL. And the hair was the only hiccup in the day. Yes, I got my hair done there in the Akumal Spa (the Tulum side doesn't have a salon). It was awful. I mean AWFUL. I brought a picture similar to the final product in the pictures with 6 different angles. When I walked out I looked like she had smeared candle wax all over my head! LITERALLY. Luckily I had it done at 11 so I went home and washed it and one of my friends came to the rescue. She was amazing and did it in like 15 minutes! The lady in the spa couldn't speak english so there was no way of communicating with her. I definitely would recommend a practice round if you have them do it. I did see a girl the day before having hers done and it was a different stylist. She wore hers in curls half up and it looked really good, however I did see her at the end of the night and it looked like the curls were gone. It was SUPER windy and I'm soooo glad my hair was up and out of my face. And my sister did my makeup - so I got lucky there...
Your pics are very beautiful! Congrats! I too will be doing a religious symbolic ceremony. Would you by any chance have a sample of your ceremony program or timeline of events for it? Anything you have of order of events for the ceremony would be helpful! I am trying to write my own program for it but Yuritzia my WC has not responded yet. THanks!

That's what I thought, thanks!

Just wanted to share the following info with you since you said you were interested in fire dancers as well. I contacted a guy by the name of Alberto who manages fire dancing shows. His email is laverdadllevaalbien@hotmail.com

They have 2 types of shows...

10 person show with a live band that performs total for 50 minutes costs $750 dollars and there is a 5 person show with dancers only no live band and lasts 30 minutes for $500 dollars.

I didn't really shop around... I read on another forum though that they were told they charged about $2000 for a 20 minute show so i figured this can't be that bad.

No payment is needed until the day of. Just check with your resort to make sure they allow these fire dance shows.

Hope that helps

Has anyone had their rehearsal dinner at the hotel? Do you know anything about prices for that? Or can anyone recommend any good places for a rehearsal dinner away from the resort? Thanks!

He was fabulous to work with. We were very happy. Yes he does charge travel fees. We were very lucky as he was already in Cancun for other business and extended his stay so I only had to pay for the service and accomodations.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
