    Hey ladies that have been married here... I need some opinions.

    We're really trying to decide on the cake flavour. I've read that the 3 milk cake is good but we're torn on that and just plain vanilla. I'd love some reviews on the cake if you have had it??

    Thanks!!

            Nikki,
            Congrats on your engagement! We also are thinking Feb 2011 for our wedding at the Bahia. I am wondering if you were able to secure your date already and how did you go about doing this? My travel agent is being a bit slow and I am wanting to book the dates and start planning with the resort. I hear its a long and grueling process :P
            Congrats again!
            -Amanda

              Hey Amanda,
              The resort wont book your date until you have your room booked first (I already tried too) I am currently waiting for a couple of quotes from travel agents so that I can confirm the booking. I am debating just paying my TA extra to do all of the planning and contacting the hotel for me, vs doing it myself. Like you said it can just be a bit trying dealing with the resort yourself as they always take so long to get back to anyone. On the other hand I already know exactly what I want, so would just be paying the TA to mediate! I don't know!
              The first quote that I got for Feb was quite expesive (given that Feb is in peak season), so I have now asked to April prices too. Maybe it will be cheaper. We'll see.
              Anyone else out there have some input on February vs April pricing?

              Cheers,
              Nikki

                yeah i'll ask again and see what she says. FI really wanted to eat at one of the restaurants at tulum

                  Just a thought... maybe its not available because its already booked by another bride for that timeslot??
                  hmmm, i didn't even think of that. guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

                  Easter is in April in 2011 so it will probably be really expensive (spring break and the such) so you might want to try March or May.
