    Hi,

    I just joined this forum, getting married at the same place in Nov '08! I am assigned to Yuritzia too, and I can't seem to get her to reply to my emails for the life of me! Let me know if you somehow get her to... maybe we'll gang up on her! :) Kidding of course

      Congrats, Sarah! :)

      I am getting married on Tulum side and Jazmin is my WC. Let me know if I can help you with anything.



      Question for everyone else: Does anyone know if the tables are round or rectangle in the restaurants? Also, how many peeps can sit at each table? I need to work on centerpieces.

      Hi Sarah! Yuritzia will not reply to you until about 3-4 months prior to your wedding. After you reserve your date and fill out the paperwork it's basically just a waiting game. She has way too many weddings to deal with everyone a year in advance. It drove me NUTS... but I do understand. So, I waited and sure enough, with 3 1/2 months to go she started e-mailing me. I get an e-mail about once a week now.

      So, if you have any questions, just let us know and hopefully we can answer them for you :)

        Anyone know about the tables at restaurants? Shapes? How many people can seat at each? Need to work on centerpieces, decorations...

          I think that the Gran Tortuga has round tables, and Le Gourmet has long rectangular ones. But I also have the idea that if you have a larger wedding party, they will set up long rectangular tables for you. I have a picture of a Gran Tortuga dinner, and I know where some are of the Le Gourmet. If you want the picutres, PM me and I'll send them to you. How big is your wedding party (including guests)?

          Have you chosen a photographer yet? If they have been to the resort before, they seem to be knowledgeable.

            Yuritzia is driving me nuts... there is less than 3 months until the wedding, we've all paid in full and she still won't return my emails/ My travel agent is just as frustrated and wants me to call her. The thing is I know it's my day yadda yadda yadda, but I don't want to tick this woman off as she is in charge of "my special day". I was a little annoyed that my wedding date was assigned to me and I had no input, I've been requesting a change for a year now, but as she never acknowledges my emails I have no idea what's going on. Sorry for the vent everyone, but my wedding is starting to look like a vacation where I'll be wearing a big white dress lol

              Just Martha - We ate at the Tequila (it was absolutely awesome!!) We chose to have two tables of 10. But we had the option of choosing tables of 4, 8, or 10. Our tables were rectangular (as I think most were square or rectangular). At the Gran Tortuga they have round and square tables (the round ones seat 6 the square ones seat 4).

              I'm going to post my review with pics sometime this week - we just got home yesterday so hang in there, haha- all I can say was the wedding was so freaking amazing!!! You ladies are going to love this resort!! And Steph77, sorry I can't be more help but I would definitely give your WC a call - and try not to stress too much (I know, easy for me to say). There were quite a few things that didn't go as planned for our wedding, but we had the greatest time, all our guests had a blast, and in the end, you realize how much none of the bubbles, cake toppers, decorations, etc. even matter cause you just married the love of your life in paradise!!!

              Steph77... I don't think I realized your wedding was only two days before mine... or if I did I totally forgot until right now! Oh my goodness how exciting! Can i peek in and watch? Are you so excited? When do you arrive at the resort?

                You are more than welcome to have a peak lol. I was hoping to get the 8th but I just don't think that's going to happen. I'm taking the advice of someone on this forum and contacting the head of the WC's because I hate it when people don't acknowledge emails, I know it will be great either way, we're there to have fun above all else.

                  Does anyone know if there is a charge for bringing in an outside photog (not Claudia)? Want to price out all options.
