Just wondering if by chance you have any pictures of the Mayan Ceremony you would be willing to share? This is the same ceremony we are having - and I am a bit nervous, since it is quite different from what I hear.

Thanks, Lindsayds.

Crystalz,
You look gorgeous on your pictures... but it was even more the case in real ! ;o)
Yeah, I saw you on the big day !
 
Dfranklin,
Have a wonderful trip and a memorable wedding day !
I'm 100% you'll have the time of your life ! Relax and enjoy.
 
Jemma,
As Sunshine said, you can bring your isle runner. It'll just cost you $$ in petals (8$ per small bag @ the resort). ;o)
It wasn't so difficult to walk with heels in the sand... but it may depend on the shoes ;-D
 
TSilva,
I found a short video on the web regarding the Mediterraneo : http://community.voyage.tv/_Gran-Bahia-Principe-Coba-Mediterraneo/video/1164078/27970.html
 

For the brides to be, try to relax. The WC really knows their job... and listen to your expectations, dreams,... So did Eugenia for me.

Couple last minute questions for people..

 

Are we supposed to tip our wedding coordinators when we are down there? I just want to be prepared if it is expected, or know protocol....

 

Also, anyone have any suggestions for brands of makeup that are conducive to the humidity? I am having mine done at the spa, but I want some back up just in case I don't 'like it, and want to make sure it would be something that will last the day.

 

Thanks everyone!!

Megz,

 

I  tipped our WC and her assistant two days after the wedding. I was so thrilled with how fantastic they were...paid attention to every detail...made me feel relaxed/calm...had everything organized...even worked to get a special request honoured for me...I had nothing to stress about!

 

I don't think the tip was expected...although they may have thought they weren't gettting one at all since I tracked them down two days after the wedding. Both seemed genuinely surprised and grateful to receive a thank you card with tip enclosed.

 

I tipped the WC $75 and her assistant $30...totally forgot about the Officiant though. Felt bad
about that...

 

Hope that helps!

Hi Everyone!

 

We are back from our Wedding - we were married on the beach Tulum! it was fantastic! Jazmin and her assistant did an amazing job! they are complete pros. Everything went perfectly. The dinner was great, and the pool side reception was great!

 

Just wanted to thank everyone for their help and wish all the future brides best wishes - and don't stress they are pros!

Andree- Did you??!! ha ha oh my i was SOOOO freaking hot! Like ready to faint, another bride that got married the day before me, came and brought me water just before I walked down, that wasn't you was it? if so THANKS lol much needed.

 

Megz- We used MAC makeup for eyes, and I used Young Blood mineral loose powder foundation and clinique primer, we didn't have any problems with makeup running, maybe a tiny tiny bit but i don't think the humidity made it do that.

 

TSilva- Ya i brought my own photographer, she was awesome, I just didn't tell the resort, too much hassle. No one even noticed because I had the videographer from arrecife and the photographer for my 10 free photos and all my guests were taking photos. And the WC, photographer and videographer took off like right after the ceremony. I just paid for my photographers trip for a week and she did all the photos (she took 1200 but i assume i'll get around 400 at least or something) all edited on disc for me.

 

Okay ladies, now that my reception at home here is over (which btw it was a total blast!!) I can focus on uploading my photos! Still haven't got the wedding photos back from the photographer so I think I will do my review and attached my photos of our trip so you can see the resort and how much fun we had ha ha. I warn you, my review may be long ha ha then when I get my photos back I will add them after :)

 

I promise though I will do my review by this weekend!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
