Tulum and Akuml both offer beach wedding locations (Coba might but I'm not too sure).
Here are pictures of the Tulum wedding locations:
Beach (this was our wedding setup):
Gazebo (these are older pictures that Jazmin sent us):
And here's the rain out location for Tulum (it's the Tequila restaurant):
Sorry that the pictures are really bad - everything does look a lot nicer in person!

I think you're right. And I just found out that trips with layovers were over $100 cheaper, so I'm a little less freaking out. I think I was just being hormonal (that time of month) along with sleep deprived and it caused me to freak a little too much. Did any of you find that the prices and flights were drastically lower at a different time in the year?

but i have a big gap between my ceremony and reception but i did that on purpose so i wouldn't be time crunched for pics and preparing for the reception.
we're getting married at noon but our reception isn't til 6pm so i figure that is tons of time to do pics, then freshen up, hang out and then set up our reception with name tags and favors. i'll probably do it myself or get my MOH to do it. but i'm sure if you ask the WC to set it up they probably could
sapphire - i think prices and flights do change depending on when you go. we purposely picked May cuz package prices for the resort drop by 200 bucks compared to april. if you pick a low season to travel in prices are normally lower

As far as the allergies, we didn't have any foodies with... but my sister and dad are deathly allergic to bees/wasps. There were NONE. Obviously they carried around their eppe pens just incase, but we never even saw one. The GBP sprays for bugs... so maybe that's why? Or it could have been the time of year too.

We are getting married August 2009 at Gran Bahia Principe.
Our biggest issue right now is trying to decide which resort to stay at. Coba? Tulum? or Akumal?
I really want to get married on the beach, and am not sure if all the resorts (Coba/Tulum/Akumal) offer a choice of getting married on the beach or not.
Does someone have a list of all the wedding sites for each section?
We are staying at the Coba, and were just assigned a beach location. They sent us photos, and it looks beautiful. We chose the Coba as all the rooms are junior suites, which we thought guests would like for more room, but it is a few minutes from the beach. Your wedding restaurant choices at Coba are Le Gourmet, Portofino (Italian), a seafood restaurant, and a medittarian (I can't remember the other names.)
