    Hello, we are planning to get married in Gran Bahia Principe Coba in January 2010. Do you have any comments? Is what we can choose the location for the wedding. If we choose to make a private reception, how much it costs. Thank you

      Do you know the difference between the symbolic ceremony to renewal vows

        so for the already married gals, how did your dinner/ reception work?

        i'm a little confused as to when the speeches and cake cutting would happen. i'm doing dinner at tequila and then poolside reception. at normal weddings the cake is done later in the night...which would be at the poolside reception.

        and for speeches, i know they block off a part of the restaurant but it's not totally private. suggestions on what worked for you guys? or if you'd do it differently than how you did it? thanks!

        We had our entire wedding outside, but what we did was we ate dinner, then we cut the cake (while the last of the people were finishing... but I'm sure you could do this at the poolside so it's more private), and then after we cut the cake my dad took the microphone and started the speech parade. It woked out quite well.

          Calchik - We ate at the Tequila too. We did the cake cutting right after dinner.

          Depending on how long you expect the speeches to be - you could either do them at the restaurant or at the reception. My suggestion would be to wait until the reception though so you're not cut short on time.

            Okay, we are leaving Friday to visit the GBP... I was just wondering, is there anywhere we should go/see ad report to our guests? Ruins, PDC, Xel-ha... what would you guys recommend?? Are there any specific questions we should ask Jazmin?? Any ideas? Thanks!

            i LOVED Xel-ha. I just wish we had more time there (we did a dolphin swim so that ate up a good chunk of time). But even going to PDC and reporting to your guests how to use the Collectivos, where to get off, where the Walmart is... things like that might be very helpful.

              We're thinking of renting a car when we go to visit next month... do you guys think that's a good idea? Will there be difficulties in parking/getting around?

              we are renting a car for a couple reasons, 1 because we will arrive at the hotel the first day much sooner and when we check out we wont have to leave so early, we can spend some extra time in the sun! and 2 because we just like the freedom having a car brings. if we want to go to cancun one day and tulum the next, chichen itza the next, we dont have to pay for/arrange transportation--we can just jump in the car and go! and it will already be paid for as well :) AND we can leave from wherever to go back to the hotel when we want and not have to wait on anyone or anything.

              so its just that bit of extra freedom we can spend doing what we want and when.

              haha i say all this and we probably end up never leaving the resort
