    Congrats turtlewax15. Sounds like it was a great time. I hope you post some pictures! I was wondering what the cost of DJ Bob is and do you have to pay a fee to bring him into the resort?

      Turtlewax15,
      Thanks so much for all the information! You cleared up a few things I was wondering too. Be prepared to answer more questions as I'm sure more will come up! Thanks again :)

          Turtle, you are awesome for answering everyone's questions.

          I know Jazmin said the latest the poolside reception could go was 10:30 p.m. I know the disco doesn't open up until midnight. What did you and your guests do in between that time to keep the party / momentum going?

            Thanks for all the info Turtlewax! I don't mind seeing you post all the time ;-) Your answering all of my questions...lol!! But I do have 1 more...

            Did you have to ask her to send you the wedding itinerary before you got there? Or did she just send it to you?

              My wedding date was just confirmed! May 11th, 2010 at GBP Coba!!

              Now the one thing that freaks me out; We arrive on a Sunday in the early afternoon, the wedding date is Tuesday. In the email I got from Paloma it says: Bride, groom must arrive 2 working days prior this day. So am I good? I told her we were arriving Sunday so she wouldn't book it if it wasn't right, right?

                I'd look into that maybe. We were told 4 working days. We arrive on Saturday and I wanted to get married on the Wednesday but they said we couldn't b/c of the 4 day thing. So that is why we are getting married on April Fool's Day.

                  I was told the same thing. We arrive on a Saturday and we're not allowed to get married until the Thursday because of the 4 days.

                  Let us know what you find out. Perhaps the rules have changed since we booked our weddings.

                    I forgot to mention that we're doing a symbolic ceremony, not a legal one, so the 4 day rule doesn't apply to us. They probably want time to organize everything though since you arrange the details after you arrive! I emailed her back just to confirm...I'll let you know what she says!

                      wow this thread has been so informative.
                      I am booking my wedding at GBP tulum in Feb 2011 and am looking into doing the dinner and reception pool side. It sucks that it can only go until 10:30 though. Does anyone know if it gets cool at night in Feb? I was wondering if I should move my date if I want to do the dinner outside?
                      Did anyone else get married there in feb - april. I am wondering if I have to be worried about the spring break crowd?
