Recommended Posts



Hi girls :)

Its my first post is these great forum!

To start i just want to congratulate all the brides and married girls and wish you all the best!

I am from Portugal, and i am going to married in GranBahiaPrincipe Tulum in July 2013, i am very excited but i feel that i still have everything to decide and i will sure need your precisous help.

I am thinking of choosing the mayan ceremony. Does anyone have pics of these ceremony that can share? Is it with a true shaman? Does it fit with the gazebo space?

Other questions is about wedding shoes. At these point i need to buy the shoes in order to made the adjust in my wedding dress. I love high heels, but maybe some flat sandals are the wiser choice. Whats were your choices girls? Its easy to walk on the beach with a long dress.

Thank you!

 

Big hug and kisses *********

Hi everyone!

 

I am getting married in November, and just got some emails from Eugenia. I was wondering if anyone had any luck getting a different restaurant for their wedding dinner than was previously offered? We are staying at and getting married in Akumal, but we had our hearts set on Gran Tortuga (not Dolce Vita or Frutos Del Mar) with a private poolside reception afterwards. Any advice? Thanks!

For after dinner (in Don Pablo Restaurant ) we have 4 options, just please let me know to can confirm:

  1. a private pool party with a cost of 1´680usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs (8:00pm -11pm) of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special ilumination + sound equipment + speakers + microphone + lights and DJ- very nicely decorated with chairs and high tables,
  2. a private pool party with a cost of 1´470usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs (8:00pm -11pm) of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special ilumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & hight tables,
  3. a private pool party with a cost of 1´020usd per 40people maximun and 3 hrs(8:00pm -11pm)  of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  special ilumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & hight tables,
  4. free time after dinner to do a get together in the lobby bar but we cannot book areas or tables there because this is part of the all inclusive services for all the guests in the complex

 

Hope this helps.

Hi,

We were given the same pricing and options. We are getting married on a thurs and have heard (through this site) that there is a Mexican fiesta night at a considerably lower cost. The only gap in our plan post-reception dinner is that we would like to have an hour/two of our own music. We are going to attempt to talk to one or two of the dj's in the resort. We aren't supportive of paying over a grand for a private bartender as we are at an all inclusive and none of our guests would even like the special cocktails as everyone drinks wine, spirits & beer. We are always going to bring our own small speakers so worst case we will find a private area of the hotel on our own, hook up the speakers and have a private boogie somewhere. Also my fiance plays guitar so we may bring that and then have that as part of the entertainment too. We are only about 20 people so it shouldn't be a big deal. Then after this psuedo party we can hit the mexican fiesta.  I doubt highly the hotel will kick out the bride & groom. lol. x

    • 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. 
    • 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.
