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

Recommended Posts

What is the internet access like at the GBP? We are at the Coba. I think we are going to bring our laptop so we can back up our photos daily. We also bought a little memory card camcorder that we can back up to the computer daily.

Internet access is for the diamond members only (or so it was last year) there is a little room with 2-3 computers.

 

As for bringing your own laptop, make sure you have a laptop lock to keep it safe in your room.

We're back and we're married!!!

 

Everything went perfectly except the pouring rain in the morning that lasted until 1:30 in the afternoon. We we're lucky enough to have our wedding outside. Jazmin did a wonderful job and everything we asked was there! The only thing I can say about her is that she takes way too much time to answer us back! We got married on the Tulum side and we had the legal and the mayan ceremony right after! After the second ceremony we had the mariachis and everybody loved it. Our photographer was Elizabeth Medina! What a nice person! She's so lovely to work with, she's relaxed and she don't mind when we ask for special pics! I can't wait to see her pictures! For now, here's a few non profesionnal one!!

Congrats! Gorgeous pictures! I can't wait to see the professional ones. I have lots of questions for you. It sounded like you had the legal ceremony, right? If so, how was the officiant? Were you allowed to write your own vows and add in extra things such as sand ceremony, readings, etc? Did the coordinator translate, how was that? Also, how was the dinner? We want details! Thanks so much for your help. I'm glad everything went well.

Yes we had the legal ceremony and the juge was fine, she spoke only spanish and Jazmin translate everything and it was ok. We didn't write our vows but we could if we would because Jazmin ask us at our meeting. She told me we couldn't include the sand ceremony because the judge was really strict... We had the dinner at the buffet because we didn't want to choose what everybody would have had for dinner... It was perfect because it was semi-private... I hope this helps a little bit...

For your other question :
We had the chance to dance a few songs in the lobby bar.... The DJ wasn't available...

    • 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! 
    • 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.
