        Does anyone have the Wedding Package information for GBP Tulum? I have tried contacting them but haven't heard back and the info on their site seems very general. I would like to know what ALL of my options are before I book.

         

        Thanks in advance

          Girling, have you checked out the GBP Official thread on the forum (go back to the Riviera Maya and Cancun Accomodations page)? It's got lots of info on stuff like packages, photos, DJ etc - super great.

            Thanks AD, we had Sensatori booked for 18 month but my family were struggling with the price and I was a bit jubious as we have divorced parents on both sides. At the sensatori there didnt seem like many places to escape from each other if they wanted to. That had played on my mind for the last 18 month. After speaking to the travel agent in Thompsons who just got married at the Ackumal, we totally changed our mind. She said it was fantastic and so relaxed, which is what I want and I didnt want guests to be bored. x

            Rachael, I think you'll be really happy.  The Akumal weddings are just amazing.  And the resort is HUGE!!!  So you can either choose to be away (for instance, you and your husband go hang out at the jacuzzi pools without telling anyone), or you can all meet up at the same location by the same pool every day.  There is SO much to do at that resort.

                  Krysti, will your poolside reception be in Coba or Akumal? 

                  It should be at the Coba at a pool close to Portofino Restaurant where we are having our dinner (I got Dolce Vita and Portofino mixed up in the previous post). I was told by our WC Maria that they set up tables, chairs and decorations, although I am bringing some of my own decorations. I am also choosing to have my wedding cake at the reception instead of the dinner. Krysti

                  You're very welcome Rachael.  I am not a resort photographer.  I live in Wisconsin and I got married at the Gran Bahia... and as of last week I have photographed there now too!  I have photographed many destination weddings, but this was my first one at the GBP.  I must say, it was amazing to be taking pictures at the same place I got married... I might have even let a tear fall!

                  Ah yes.  Then that's what Cheryl had for her wedding.  Dinner at Portofino and then walked to the jacuzzi pools for the reception.  It was so fun (well, for me as a photographer it was!).  So do you know what the jacuzzi pools look like?  Obviously I'll have a ton of pictures, but I know your wedding is coming quickly.  We saw two receptions there.  The first was Kristi's but sadly hers was rained out and then Cheryls.  For both they had tall cocktail tables with white linens and ties around them (Cheryl's were orange).  Then they had rope lighting on the umbrella palplaya thingies and chairs around the rim of the area.  They also had white paper bags with candles in them lighting the perimeter of the pool and the walkways.
