    Hi AmberJanet! Congrats! I will be arriving May 30 and getting marriend June 4! And we are getting married at that same location. I think it's a really neat location. This is a picture that I received from the WC. Looks a little overcast in this picture, but I think it looks neat! Absolutely can get lots of ideas and info off this site! Let me know if you need any more info!



    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!

      Hey ladies,

      First time posting on here. Just got my wedding confirmed for Jan 17th 2012!! Havent had any contact with WC yet, hopefully that wont take too long!  Im soooo excited! We've been told that we dont need to get documents translated in to Spanish?? Is this correct? Also, if any one does have prices of extras etc that  would be really appreciated!

          We are getting legally married in the US before heading down to Mexico! And then we will be having a symbolic wedding ceremony on the beach, where all of our guests can see us get "married."

            Hey,

            We are getting legally married here before we go and having a symbolic ceremony on the beach as well. You still sign some papers during the ceremony so your guests would never know the difference. 

             

            We already have our marriage license and we're actually going today to finish the process of getting legally married.  We found an awesome lady to work with who knows that to us our wedding day is April 6th in Mexico. Originally, I didn't really want to do this because I was afraid it would take away from our wedding in Mexico but I can honestly it doesn't at all.  It will only take us 10-15 minutes today to finish our paperwork to be legally married. You don't exchange rings or anything, so it truly is just paperwork. 

             

            You have to be there for 4 days before you can get legally married in Mexico which was another reason we decided to get legally married before we go. We arrive on a Sunday so we wouldn't be able to get married until Friday and than some of our guest would be leaving the next day and Sun. Now we are getting married on Wednesday and than still have 3 full days afterwards to relax and have a good time with our guests.

             

            For the newbies, we are having a poolside dinner and reception and hired DJ Bob (best price!). We have 65 guests coming with us. If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I'll help you in anyway I can. :-)

             

            Tara

              Yes it is definitely easier to get legally married prior to the Mexico wedding!

              Where are you getting married???

              We are getting married in Akumal- where is your poolside reception and are you having food or just cocktails? We hired DJ Bijan, but I'm not sure where the dance floor is supposed to be....

                  That'd be great waybuloo!  It'd be nice to put a face to all the great brides we get to meet on the forums! 

                   

                  We have 18 coming with us and we're just doing the reception dinner, no dance.

                   

                  Thanks for you offer of information!  Do you happen to have any pics of the flower/cakes available?
