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

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what everyone did for hair and make-up on their wedding day? So far all the reviews I've heard about the spa haven't been that great. I have 5 BM's so for the 6 of us, hair and makeup will be $826 (cdn) plus tip. I don't mind spending the money...I just don't want to spent it and then have all the girls go back to their rooms and redo their hair/makeup themselves.

We got our hair and makeup done at the salon... I loved every single one of our hair styles. Three of us also got the makeup and I thought it was amazing. I did however NOT use their eye mascara or liner. That's nasty.

Yay! I've finally got my date figured out - June 10, 2009 at Tulum and Jazmin is my WC. I've been working all day to figure out church arrangements - I think we may be going with the Catholic Church in Xcaret. We are bringing our own priest down so although the religious ceremony is not recognized in Mexico, it will be recognized back in Vancouver. Plus we skip out on having to do all the legal papers, blood test, etc during the first half of our trip. At least this is the plan at the moment...

 

For photography, I am also now looking at Cancun Photography. Has anybody else used them? Any one ever use O'Driscoll photography? He is giving me a great package deal with engagement photos, full day stuff and TTD session, but his gallery online is not as impressive as some of the other sites.

One of my friends is a hairdresser/makeup artist for weddings, so I told her I would pay her airfare if she would do all the hair and makeup for our wedding, and she was allll about it! So, that will work out well!

Joanna that is a great deal if she is willing to do it! Although the Spa was great... they are a little stressful since they don't speak ENGLISH! Ugh... I go to a Spanish speaking country and I expect English :) Silly.

 

Mayan Butterfly, congratulations on setting and confirming a date! Yippee!

I have no knowledge of those photographers... but if their website isn't too great, maybe you could e-mail them and ask if they'll send you pictures from a complete wedding. I think that could help put you at ease.

Congrats on setting a date!

 

I also do not have any knowledge of O'Driscoll photography I agree asked to see pictures of a full wedding, so you can see the prep, wedding and after this way you can see the true style of the photographer.

 

I also plan to use the salon but am bringing lots of picts!!

I got my hair done at the salon, as did most of my family. Just be aware there is no Barbacide and they use the same tools on everyone. My hair was Ok, but I'm not sure if it was worth it. They use the straightening iron to curl your hair and I have fine hair and they burnt my hair, about 4 inches on the ends of my hair had to be cut off when I got home. I don't want to freak you out but just thought I'd put this out there.

I know I've seen the answer here somewhere but can't seem to find it when I search...

 

Do you know whether they charge for guests not staying at the resort? and if so, how much? And is it dependent on if you have an ala carte dinner vs a private dinner, etc?

 

Thanks!
