Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts


The WC told me when we met with her that the photographer would be there and I would recieve my 10 free pictures so I think that if I would have asked that they not come she would have let them know, but I am not positive on that

Thanks, that is what we were trying to do was pick ones that you would not have been able to get

I did not pay extra, I gave her this picture and they turned out perfect...

This is kinda a random question.... but I have been struggling trying to find/come up with outfit ideas for our dads so they look nice and still comfortable, and I LOVE what your dad is wearing. Any idea where he got his shirts and pants???

 

AND you look beautiful and your photos made me very happy.... a little over two months until my wedding and I can't wait! Thanks for sharing!

I believe that my mom got his shirt at target, I will double check with her and find out the brand and make sure that is where she got it from, and then he just is wearing dockers which you can get at carsons, kohls or i believe macys.

 

Thank you, your wedding will be here before you know it and it will be amazing I am sure of it

Ok, we were just given a new option by Paloma so its either I say with the 5pm at Akumal Beach, my earlier option for Akumal Beach is 1pm or I can do 4pm at the Tulum Gazebo. Eeek! Decisions decisions....any input as my FI left for work at I won't be able to chat with him till tomorrow night.

My options given to me by my WC are:

a. Change the ceremony to 1pm

b. Change the dinner time to 9:30pm

 

I feel that a 9:30 dinner is way too late, plus then there is no time for dancing. On the other hand my FI does not like the idea of a 1pm ceremony due to the heat, and the beach being busy.

Any thoughts or solutions?

Ha!  Yeah, sorry about that Cheryl!  I hope your feet didn't hurt too bad from having to go out on the rocks! 

Totally worth it though

As for the beach or the gazebo option.  Hm. Tough decision.  The only thing i don't like about the gazebo is that the guests can't see the water from the seats.  It's very pretty though, and such a lush area for photos afterwards!

Has anyone ever had french polish done by the spa?  Jazmin sent me the spa brochure but I don't see anywhere about getting french polish (usually it is listed separate because most places charge an extra $10 or so for it..)  So does anyone know if they can even do it?

    • 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.
