          I got them! Thanks for sending those over. Now to decide which one. They surely aren't like the cakes that you would find in Canada. ;-)

            The cake was very basic that we got. It was one layer tres leche, and everyone really liked it. They did one layer so that there would be other desserts for people to have as well. We did the mixed grill reception by the pool and it was fantastic. The food was wonderful!!! I will be posting a full review once I receive the pictures!

            We booked our reception immediately. They will only have one private wedding reception a night... and since that's what I wanted, we booked it right away. They also do first come first serve for choices in the restaurants, so you might want to book that right away too if you aren't doing a private reception.

            As for the flowers, I LOVED our flowers. SO beautiful and I'm really glad we went with them. I actually sent our coordinator an email with a picture and asked if they were possible and how much they'd be. Same with my cake.

              Thanks Joanna and Tlseege - I've asked the co-ordinator to book us for a private reception on the beach. I'll take pool side too I just want it to be private. I've received confirmation on the guitar trio and I think I'm going to go with just 1 teir too. Do you think I can request a certail colour of icing?

              I can't wait to read your review Joanna. I haven't been able to find many of them so I've been feeling a little lost.

              I don't think they do beach receptions, but the pool side is really awesome.
              As for the colored icing, I think that they can. Mine was just white with silver accents and flowers... but I'm sure they could do it.

                Ok pool works too. Did you get a DJ and all that good stuff for the reception too? I was thinking that we could just go to the hotel club if we wanted to party afterwards. I'm having and AHR too so at the risk of sounding cheep I'm trying to save where I can.

                  Hi everyone,

                  My fiancee and I would like to get married July 2010 and we are just starting our wedding planning. We are pretty interested in the Gran BP and I have found this forum so helpful so far!

                  We think we will have 30-50 guests and we would like to have the ceremony in the gazebo and the reception in a restaurant. I love the idea of the pool side reception, but i think it is beyond our budget.

                  Does anyone know if you can do speeches during the reception in a restaurant? We are thinking of renting out the disco for a couple of hours for dancing...

                  For those of you who have already had your weddings, did your guests organize their own travel? or did you have a travel agent book everyone? We have guests coming from Vancouver BC, Cairns Australia, Sacramento California and Dublin, Ireland so we are not sure what to do.... I have been looking at destinationweddings.com, a website where they book everything with you, contact the resort and set up a wedding website for you. has anyone used them or heard anything about it?

                  Finally, we are trying to decide if we should stay at the akumel, tulum or coba section of the resort. any suggestions?
