One question - did you have to bring any of the decorations for your wedding site? It looks so pretty with the turquoise fabric - did the wedding planner actually have all that for you?

Thanks Jessica!
I actually DID bring that blue fabric with me. It's 10 yards of satin fabric which I bought at my local craft store (Hobby Lobby). It was $2.99 a yard, plus a 40% off coupon. I would do it again in a heart beat!!

          As for the regular room and the junior suite... BIG difference!
          The regular room was two twin beds that could be pushed together and a tiny table with two chairs. The Junior suites are a king size bed. And then it has a seperate seating area with a couch and table and chairs. It was 100% needed when we were getting ready for the wedding. It was so much bigger. Plus with my neice they needed the extra room so that she could actually play inside the room in the shade!
          Tlseege, I LOVE the way you set up the ceremony site. I'm thinking i'll do the same and purchase 10 yards of extra fabric prior to leaving. The extra colour looks gorgeous against the beautiful backdrop of the sea. I also like the idea of purchasing extra flower arrangements for the path. Did you coordinate the extra flower arrangements with Yuritzia before leaving for Mexico or a couple days before the wedding?

              Hey Gals,
              Just wanted to say Hello! I am a newbie to this, so don't mind my numerous questions, although I have pretty much just bugged Trisha since I met her through Trip Advisor first and she was the one to recommend this site and forum! Thanks Trisha. It is awesome to know that I am not the only one going a bit bridezilla on occasion when these Gran Bahia Principe coordinators don't respond quickly! I am getting married in the akumal part on November 7th, 2008. I can't wait! It sounds like everyone who has done it already, is fully satisfied with their wedding there. I am glad and feel so reassured now!

                  How cool! That is awesome! We will have to share some drinks afterwards huh! I will be there from November 3rd to November 17th. When are you arriving? How is your planning going? By the way are you a nurse too? If so that is a crazy coincidence!

                    We will be there from Nov 5 through 13th. I am a nurse. I work in a medical ICU/ CCU in Pittsburgh. Most of the stuff for Mexico is done. I'm not getting crazy with decorations for Mexico. Just have to finish up my OOT bags. We should definitely meet up for a drink.
