    One thing that I would find out about is the "Mexican" night that they have at the Hacienda. I see that you're getting married on a Thursday...and if that is the same night that they do the Mexican fiesta night...then I don't think you can rent out the disco. Sorry...but I don't know the price for the disco...but I think it may be somewhere in this thread.

    I am doing a poolside reception (weather permitting) so you may want to check into something like that?

    Is it Christian (Karla's assistant) that has gotten back to you from the resort? I just received an email from him yesterday...so now we can start planning :)

      Yes I did get an e-mail from Karla's assistant who told me that she will be away until July 27th. So I only have one month with Karla before the Wedding date. Scary! The assistant is not great at english because she actually said June 27 first??
      I hope thats enough time.

Now its question time. Should I be worried about details now or do I wait until I get there?? We have booked the Mediterranean Restaurant for our Dinner and wondering if anyone has any comments on it. We are also considering the Disco for the reception but have no idea of the price or if it will just be for the wedding guests. Please help!
        The Mediterranean restaurant is one of my favourites on the property...we have stayed at Bahia Coba five times and have dined there each time. Great pick!!

          thanks great to hear about the mediterranean rest. For our reception we were thinking the pool area or possibly the swing bar I also read in one of the posts a reception was held at the gazebo? any suggestions would be helpful. thx

              Hey everyone, we are back... and a review is going to come shortly. We were married at GBP Tulum and it was like a dream, more than we could have expected. Jazmin came throught for EVERYTHING even at the last minute when it looked like it was going to rain. we were so thoroughly satisfied and beyond with the wedding and reception!!

So for half of these pictures at least one of us thought we were flying out the next day!

                  I thought I'd post them because inspite of all the things that can go wrong a wedding at GBP is amazingly stress free and so worth it! Claudia, the photographer did a great job and Liam, the groom, did a great job of pretending!

                  Thank you so much for sharing your pictures. They are beautiful!!! I am using Erick from Claudia's team & we booked him for the smallest package which is 3 hrs. Do you think thats enough time How long did you have yours for? We have already paid the deposit but might change the amount of time we have him for. Any advice would help.

                    Claudia was awesome... she was so friendly we felt like we knew her personally. Erik is her brother, he did our friends engagment photos and was at our reception as well. we did 5 hours... three would probably get you getting ready, ceremony, and some after, but probably not reception pics. They were so awesome to work with.
