Also I've seen the cake is a two or three tier available. Is the fabric over the chairs included or will I have to purchase my own? Also how much extra is it for my brides maids flowers I have 7 BM (rather large bridal party). We selected the unforgettable package I'm having 50+ guests any suggestions on a ceremony site?... & I've also seen that the disco is no longer available to rent out is this true! Ok sorry for all the questions

 

If you go back through this thread and the official thread http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/75549/official-gran-bahia-principe-riviera-maya-thread you'll be able to find a lot of answers to your questions and more!

 

Re the pool side reception:

 

National Bar:         
Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky          $1900 USD 


Special Cocktails: 
Beer, Piña Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail 
& Sparkling Wine                                                  $1100 USD 

This option  is for 30 persons maximum , in case there´s more people will have an extra charge. 
This packages includes 3 hours of open bar, set up, soft lighting, cocktail tables, tiffany chairs microphone and music. (so this includes DJ).

 

Special Cocktails without DJ but with Speakers so we can play our own music: 585 USD

 

I don't know about the cake.

 

I think there might be white fabric included, so if you want colors you have to bring you own.

 

Disco no longer available is true.

 

I'm not the flower expert but suggest you look into the official thread.

 

Ceremony site, same, go to the official thread you should be able to see pictures and get an idea!

 

Good luck planning!

Yes, this is what I was told last week

 

Special Cocktails without DJ but with Speakers so we can play our own music: 585 USD

 

But you have to add 90$ for the day pass for your dj + you might want to check but I've read that some dj's weren't aloud on this resort anymore.

Our wedding is not until May 2014 I have a few questions on dress choices! I've already found my gown as for my bridesmaids they have chosen a dress that's long. Is this a good choice should they go shorter. Will they be too hot and uncomfortable. I mean the dresses are beautiful but I'm just not too sure what to do

We don't get married until January '14 but I chose long chiffon dresses. I've heard it can be very windy on the beach (where we're having our ceremony) and I was worried the girls might have issues with short dresses flying up over their heads lol! As long as its not a heavy material like satin, I think they should be ok :)

Answers I can give you are

 

The cake is 1 tier and you have the choice of round or heart shaped and many flavours - chocolate, vanilla, raspberry, coconut,  white chocolate with coffee or 3 milks (it is a sweet, soft and creamy mexican dessert) We have the 3 milk and it was devine - so delicious and light (didn't think would have room after 4 course meal)

 

The chairs have white covers - if you want another colour or sashes for them you have to arrange this

 

We didn't have this option but this was what we were offered:- 

 

1.  a private pool party with a cost of 1´500usd per 30people maximun and 2 1/2 hrs (8:30pm -11pm) of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special illumination + 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´290usd per 30people maximun and 2 1/2hrs (8:30pm -11pm) of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  2 lounge rooms + special illumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & high tables

 

3. a private pool party with a cost of 840usd per 30people maximun and 2 1/2hrs(8:30pm -11pm)  of special drinks (piñas coladas, margaritas, sparkling wine & beers) +  special illumination + 1 microphone + speaker to connect your Ipod and decorated too with chairs & high tables

 

Hope this helps Kirstin xx

Okay, I'm into the small stuff now and I don't totally understand how the ceremony goes.  If we do our own vowes in french, won't we already have our rings on because of the judge?  I'm confused! LOL

 

Getting close!!!

Hiya :) I'm new to all this! I've been really laid back with the planning and now I am panicking that I haven't done anything and we only have 3 months left!! Does anyone know what comes with the mixed grill private meals option as I am wanting a pool side meal and this looks the best deal? What food does it include? Is there just meat and no sides? Thanks Rach x

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
