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

Recommended Posts

We signed the papers here about a month prior. I wanted to do it closer to the departure date, but because my FI works on the rigs and is away most of the time it was difficult to schedule.

Just out of curiosity - for those of you ladies from Canada who got married first before you went to Mexico - how close to the wedding did you make it legal at home?
I know if you're having the symbolic ceremony down there they don't need to see any documentation but just wanted to make sure.

Sunshine2680, we were legally married in Canada about 1 month prior to departure. Our friend/minister who happens to be a lawyer as well married us and he said to be on the safe side, 1 month prior for all the paperwork to be filed. About 10 days after we received a notice from the Government of Quebec stating we are legally married as of Mar 24. I hope this helps.

Aquamaniac

 

Don't worry about the rain.  I am making the weather the last of my worries.  I am thinking of it as a positive....if it does so happen to rain it will hopefully cool things down a little. 

 

Well to be honest I think I am just over the whole planning!  I didn't have anyone to help with any of my projects because my family lives in another state.  I am just ready to walk down the aisle and party it up with friends and family.  My job has been very stressful and I am just ready to get away and relax.  woot.gif

You may have to go to more than one location to find the amount that you need, but they are there nevertheless. Just thought I let you gals know!

Aquamaniac, honestly do not worry about the rain. A week before our departure I was checking the weather in Playa del Carmen like crazy, like 5x a day! Weather Network kept saying for the day of our wedding (May 3) there would be a chance of thundershowers (1-3mm) and even for the days before the wedding. But we were there for 14 days and we had ZERO precipitation, it was sunny & HOT all the days we were there and on our wedding day it was the hottest day of the week at 41°C (105F). We actually prayed for some clouds to give us some better photos but it was sunny with blue skies. Plus there is a saying that rain on your wedding day brings the couple good luck :) I hope this helps calm you.

Nikki17 I was the same as you. I live in a different province from my girlfriends and my now-husband was too busy with work to assist me in the major planning. A week before I was just tired of planning and just waited until I got to the resort to work out the finer details. And everything worked out for us so I'm sure it'll be the same for you and your almost-husband! :) Good luck and enjoy the stress-free vacation!

    • 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.
