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

Recommended Posts

So we can choose the wedding packages for legal weddings, even though we want a symbollic wedding only? Because I was told that the Unforgettable package is only for legal weddings, but I'm going to City Hall at home to do all the paper work since I didn't want to get that blood test in Mexico.

Well if you don't care much about flowers and the resort offers ones you like - then i would use them because you'll prob get a lot included with your package.

Unfortunately for me - none of the ones that were included in the package were what i wanted - so i was going to have to pay over and above.

What i did was send the exact pics above to Jazmin (my WC at the resort) and got her to quote me and send the exact same pics to Marvin and got his quote. There was literally

$1000 difference in the grand total with Marvin.

I can't remember what the prices were (per flower) from the resort - but Marvin is charging me only $190 for my bouquet and the resort was like $500-something - no joke

For the boutonnieres and corsages they were fairly similar - Marvin is charging around $20-$25 per

Bridesmaids bouquets with Marvin are only $75 - and the resort was chargin over $100


You do have to pay $100 USD for deliver to the resort BUT you don't have to pay a vendor fee because he's just delivering - not really coming onto the resort.

I'm having to pay a vendor fee for my hair and makeup people but thats all

Was  there an option to pick up the flowers instead of the delivery fee?  (could be a good job for my dad and FFIL) Do you know if Marvin's shop is close to the resort? I guess $100 isnt thaaaaat bad if you are saving a ton of money...


I think you can pick them up - not 100% sure tho - don't quote me on it. I do believe he's in Playa del carmen - which is only about a 20-30 min drive from the resort - so ya - you can get your dad's to take a cab down to get them for sure - **IF thats where he is - ha ha

Again - i'm not 100% sure - so I would email and ask Marvin
