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

Recommended Posts

Amanda your wedding soundes like a blast I can not believe you had streakers!!! So your private reception was not badly priced. Sounds like it was well worth it. Was there a bar near the the private reception area for people to get additonal drinks?

 

For those that paid for alchol what type did they serve?

It was a blast!

 

I'm not sure if different alcohol is included with different dinners - we had the mixed grill and had pop, beer and sparkling wine included. I'm not sure if house wine was included or not, we paid for wine from the wine list as we wanted 'real' wine instead of the wine they serve as the house wine. We had a cocktail hour before our dinner and with that they included margaritas. They said they would keep serving margaritas during dinner but no one had any (at that point we had all had our fill of sugar drinks...lol). The lobby bar is on the other side of the pool so only a 3 minute walk. It's also where the bathrooms were so some guests grabbed a hard bar drink from the bar on their way back from the bathrooms.

Joanna - The girls and I all went barefoot and loved it!!

Also, we got everyone's room #'s (from them - the front desk won't give them to you) and wrote them down so we could call them if we wanted. But Jazmin will give you printouts of the wedding day activities that you can give to all of the guests.

We actually got our peeps room numbers from the front desk without any problem. But we were mostly booked as a group so maybe that is why they didn't give us any problems. We did try to get most of them from guests as they checked in. We weren't able to actually leave messages on their phones though. It never went into a voicemail. So, if they are nearby, slip a note under the door or just prearrange a place to meet at some point during the day.

 

We didn't go barefoot for the ceremony but I did for the pictures on the beach afterwards. And then we were off to dinner. It is tricky walking in the sand with heels and also tricky trying not to walk on your dress without heels.

Hi Carrie! Congrats on your day - it sounds so awesome! I was just wondering what you thought of Tequila and the atmosphere there. I've just booked my reception dinner there as it was close proximity to the poolside where we will be having drinks and dessert afterwards.

 

Thanks!

Francine

For those that got flowers from the resort did they give you the bouquet wrap on the flowers or did they use the plastic holder for you to carry the flowers? I want to have the wrap since I am putting on a memory frame for my dad so I am curious about the options. If they do not offer them would it be easy enough to bring my own and put it on?

We had dinner at Tequila restaurant one night. It's right beside the ceremony location, only a few feet away. The atmosphere at a lot of the restaurants was the same, we found all the waiters to be really polite and attentive. The appetizers were good (at all the restaurants the appetizers are buffet style). We both had the fajita's as our entree but they weren't the best. The fajita shells they use are real ones, they taste way different then the ones you buy in the supermarket here. Some of our group loved them and some couldn't get used to the taste and hated them. However, the meat with the fajita's was good and we both wish we had selected a meat plate instead of the fajitas.

My flowers were wrapped in ribbon. When they do them they have big bows but I requested no bow so they just wrapped them up the stem and pinned it on the top. I think the only ribbon choice you get is white so if you're picky about colour, then I would bring your own ribbon and a pin (or double sided tape). That way you could just wrap your ribbon overtop of the florist ribbon. Our flowers were perfect! I LOVED them. After the horrible time at the spa, we were in the golf cart going back to our room and my sister told me not to get my hopes up about the flowers - that if the spa didn't speak English she could see the florist not having understood me. But when we walked into the room and saw the flowers we were all so relieved as they were exactly what I wanted.

We had this game running the whole time "good for Vancouver" and "good for Mexico". Like the white house wine the Bahia serves was good for Mexico, but if we had gotten married in Vancouver, it would not have been good. The flowers weren't just good for Mexico, they were great no matter where the wedding was!

Good idea so how much ribbon did your bring? Did you just give it to the WC at your meeting and the florist put it on?
