    Thanks, I'm glad to know they can fit 10 around a table.. it works out for us to have either 4/5 at 4 tables or 6/7 at 3 tables. I'm going to bring seating arrangements for both just in case. I thought SusieQ had her dinner at Gran Tortuga and her pics showed 6 chairs around a table so I got confused.. I'm sure all will work out one way or another!

    You're wedding is 4 months away but trust me this time is going to fly by for you!!
    So when do you actually leave?? Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back! And trust me I know I'm already starting to feel like it is coming too soon for me!!! The weeks are flying by!

    Did you hear that the Gran Tortuga was closed?? I'm not sure for how long or why?? See labgirl's post before mine!

      Woah I have no idea... I hope it's open as I was really looking forward to that.. and it's all over my printed wedding materials. What is Don Pablo? Gourmet?

          before we got to the resort, i emailed karla the room guest list (as requested by her) and then told her we had one guest coming who was not staying at the resort. that was nora (photog), and she paid her for her own day pass. then in our meeting with karla when we got to the resort, i told her we were having friends/family do our photos so we did not need the resort photog for the day, just the ceremony as we got 10 pics included in the wedding package.

          we had 40 guests in total...and everyone is taking photos that they had no idea who was who anyways.

          if you can bring someone with you as a guest then do it. if not...i suggest you meet with the resort photog before your wedding day to discuss details.

            here's the link for all the restaurants at the GBP BAHIA-GOURMET.COM ::::

            you can check the menu for all of them

            the don pabalo is located near the tulum lobby by the buffet. it's a very elegant restaurant and the food is delicious.

              hi jessica...

              we had a 3 tier round cheesecake. i think it had fondant on top, the cake was good, not too sweet.

              there is a pic on this site of it Wendy & Josh Destination Wedding Tulum Mexico Destination Inspirations

              i have to say the cake was much nicer looking than we expected

                One of our friends and a guest of ours was our photographer. When I told the WC that, she didn't even blink. She just said... ok! I think if they're from another resort and you get a day pass, its going to be harder to pretend they're a guest though. If they're a guest of the resort though, they can't prove they're not friends of yours!

                    A la carte restaurant questions: I know the men have to wear long pants but is there a dress code for women too? Can women wear shorts or capris or do they have to wear skirts/dresses?
