    YAY!! Congratulations!! Do you have any more details so far? Any vacations packages booked yet?

    Whereabouts are you from in Alberta? I'm in Red Deer. We are also having our wedding at the GBP...staying in Coba and getting married at Tulum.

        Awesome!! 10 booked already...that's wonderful...and even more once you send out the STD's I'm sure :)

        So far there are 40 of us...35 out of Calgary (but from everywhere in Alberta - Edmonton, Edson, Brooks, Red Deer)...and 5 out of Charlottetown, PEI. Who knows how many more will join us if they find the right seat sale closer to October! It's going to be great :)

          We are getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Akumal in January 2010. We are getting so excited! I'm scared however if it rains that the rain out destination is in the basement? This would totally suck!!!

          It is in the basement... but it really just feels like any normal hotel reception hall. Most of those don't have windows either. It's still bright and would be very nice if need be.

            Hey Mike&Wendy, I am from Waterloo too! Getting married on February 25, 2010 at the Akumal location (staying at Coba). We have been there 5 times, so if you have any questions let me know.

            Welcome and happy planning!

                  Okay, I have two important questions.
                  1) Can we pay for the wedding/ pool side reception on our debit card and not our credit card? I don't know if this makes a difference, we would rather not use the credit card.

                  2) We are leaving in three weeks. I read because of low tourist numbers that the Tulum side has been closed. Has anyone heard about this?? I am going to call the resort and make sure this will not be the case for the wedding. I hope not!
