        Kristi11- I am getting married Jan 13th 2012! So we will be there around the same time, I am so excited, I am thinking about having the poolside reception and hiring a DJ but i have not gotten that far into planning it yet.


        I was also wondering if anyone has gotten married leaglly at home first, this was suggested to us by our travel agent so we do not have to arrive so much earlier before the wedding or take the blood test or wait for the marriage certificate in the mail and to be translated. I jus want to make sure that if we do not do a legal ceremony that it still looks like a legal one so the guests dont know that we leagally got married here and are just saying or vows in mexico. Thanks

            Cdunn514 - that's so exciting!!!!!! we are also thinking about doing a poolside reception but bringing our ipad instead of hiring a DJ.  I haven't been in touch with the WC yet but will be emailing her in the next few weeks.  Which resort are you staying at?? We are at the Coba!!!!  We are legally getting married at home first and our TA told us unless we told everyone no one would ever know by the ceremony!!!

                could anyone tell me...if a pool side reception is worth it...i have booked the unforgettable pkg, we will have our dinner at one of the al cartes and then from what i was reading on here maybe go to the hasendia for the rest of the night...does anyone have a recent price list on what something like that may cost...i should have around 20 guests with me...


                thanks again

                  kristi11- We are also staying at the Coba! I am glad that she said no one will notice that it is not the actual ceremony I was worried about that. I have not decided if we are going to do a dj or not, I guess it will depend on how many people come on if it will be worth it, we are inviting 130 people, but i know that the majority of the people will not be able to make it. I am just so relieved that i have the date set, our save the dates are going out next week, it is all getting so real now!

                    Cdunn514 - What day do you arrive??? We get in on Sunday the 8th.  We should totally meet up for a drink!!!!  We are going to have around 40-50 ppl with us. Do you have a list of the extra pricing yet??? I haven't gotten it yet.....that will make my decisions easier I think once I know what pricing is.  I know everything is starting to get real....the next 10 months are gonna fly by!!!!!!!

                      Hi!  I'm fairly new to the site and am getting married at the Gran Bahia Coba on May 31st, 2011!  I think the location we're getting married at is the beach Palapas (at least that's what the WC called it).  Is anyone familiar or aware of this location?


                      I just have to say that this site is amazing and I've gotten so many awesome ideas from all the wonderful ladies on here!
