    Swankster...your pictures are beautiful! I love the idea of the post cards for your wedding album. I want my hair style to be quite similar to yours. Love the BM's dresses, your dress....I guess I love most of it. haha

    Can't wait to see your review! I'm getting married at the GBP next April but I wish it was next month. I love reading the reviews and seeing pictures. It gets you so excited for your own wedding!

    Did you stay at Tulum? I'm debating on whether to stay at Coba or Tulum. Where is the Hacienda located in relation to the hotels?

        Thanks so much!!

        We stayed at Tulum and I'm sooo glad we did. Coba looked nicer/newer but Tulum was right on the beach - and that was a must for me. Plus being the Bride/Groom you get a room upgrade and I'm pretty sure the room was the same as the Coba suites. The hacienda is walking distance from Tulum and a short trolley ride from Coba & Akumal. You can see the Hacienda from the Tulum lobby. But I do have to agree with other brides on here who have said that Akumal beach is way better - so true but then again Akumal is farther from the Hacienda... each location has their pros/cons and it's different for each person I guess.

        Just thought of something - somewhere earlier in this thread is a link to the resort map.. have you seen it? If not I can try to upload it later from home.

          Swankster - I noticed you didn't have the red carpet at the gazebo for your ceremony. Did you ask for it that way or did they just do it? When I was planning, I had noticed the red carpet in some pics and decided I didn't want it. And then I completely forgot about it when we were actually there! After the ceremony was over, the staff looked like they were setting up for another wedding and I said to my MOH "oh I'm glad they didn't have that carpet out for my ceremony". She looked at me and said, "Ummm...yeah they did". hahaha...so wrapped up, I didn't even notice!

            Haha that's hilarious!! I didn't want the red carpet either but totally forgot to even mention it... so they took it upon themselves not to use it! I didn't even know they were going to use the pink flower petals either.. so that was a pleasant surprise too!

              Oh yeah, me too! I didn't know they were going to throw petals at all after the ceremony either. There's a great pic of my hubby and I laughing with petals falling all over, and the aforementioned red carpet:

                  Oh yeah! I just remembered that it was pouring rain right up until my ceremony started so I bet that's why they didn't use the carpet!

                  I don't think anyone threw rose petals at mine... they were already spread on the ground.

                    it shouldn't be a problem, most of the time you have a section of the restaurant or the whole thing for you & your guests. we had 42 people and we were in one area of it, and no one else was in there. the only thing you may have is one option for meal instead of more choices with that many guests. they will accommodate food allergies too when requested so don't worry.
