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

That's awesome Joanna! how has all the wedding planning been going? Have you figured out what you're doing for dinner, etc?

 

Tlseege - were mosquitos a problem for the poolside?

 

Also, any recommendations about photographers? And how long is a good time to book them for? I'm looking for someone that won't be too pricey - ~$2000.

We are doing a poolside reception (mixed grill). So far the planning has been good, my whole thing is go with the flow. I just don't want to overstress and go crazy. We have also had almost 50 people RSVP and about 25 booked so far. We did not expect such a huge turnout!

hi mayanbutterfly,

you can find all this photographer info if you search the forums but here's my research on mexico photographers. some have prices, some don't if i wasn't that interested in them. also some prices i just copy pasted from what was posted so you'll want to confirm with the actual photographers.

 

i booked with claudia photo and am getting either erick or citilalli for 3 hours. but i'm not having pics done of my reception so that's why it's only 3 hours. ceremony, group, and me and my FI, that's it.

 

hope it helps :)

Hi Calchik!

 

Thanks for the info. This is great!

 

Joanna - currently we are thinking of having doing the ala carte dinner, then doing a dance/cocktail/cutting cake poolside. Not sure of all the details yet as I'm still waiting to hear back from Paloma about the date. I definitely did things in a backwards order - I have flights booked and I thought my TA had taken care of the actual wedding date 2 months ago, but when I questioned her about it, turns out she's barely been in touch with the WCs at all! It's been a bit of a rocky start, but hopefully things will get better from here on.

Haha, I have a feeling "rocky" is one of the key words with DWs... but most people seem to love them in the end! Don't worry, everything will work out. And make sure you keep on your TA about getting everything figured out as well. Let me know what happens with the date and all!

Nope, not a signle mosquito the whole time we were there. They were spraying... so maybe that's why, or maybe it was the time of yearhuh.gif

I brought my own photographer for just around $2,000... slightly more. However, I found a photographer who had never done a destination wedding and wanted to expand their portfolio. By doing so, he gave me an AMAZING deal and I got three days worth of photos for what some people pay a photographer for 5 hours! It was an amazing idea and I really highly suggest you try and find something along those lines.

We are also bringing 2 photographers that have never done a DW but have done many weddings and I just love the work they do and we got an amazing price also and we are having them for 3 days!!! I am so excited.

We decided to go with Cancun Wedding Photography. They work is excellent and they were priced great as well. They've been great to work with so far!

Most of the resorts spray for mosquito's so there shouldn't be a problem.

 

Happy planning ladies!!

Hello again -

 

For anyone who had their dinner at the restaurant...are you allowed to have your iPod there? I emailed Jazmin, but who knows when I'll hear back.

 

Thanks
