    For the Tulum brides....We are having more than 15 guests, so we have to have a set menu. Do any of you have menu options for the different resorts? I emailed Jazmin, but she hasn't gotten back to me yet.

    Thanks!

        The wesite Bahia-Gourmet has menus for all the restaurants (they are a little outdated but they're pretty close).

        Congrats to MrsFisher2be, you're gonna love this resort!

        Allianne - your pictures are AMAZING!!! Looks like you had a wonderful day.

          Thanks! It looks like you added two cocktail hours - the one from 5:30 to 7:30 with the Jarochos and then again from 7:30 to 8:30.

          We're not doing a cocktail hour, just dinner, so that's why ours is 2 hours. So told me we could start the private dinner anytime after 7pm and we decided to do it right at 7.

          hmmm... it does appear that way doesn't it? However we did NOT pay anything for the 7:30-8:30 and we certainly started eatting right away. Interesting.

              Okay, no more comments by you...LOL. Seems your WC didn't charge you for a TON of stuff!!! It makes me want to plan our wedding the same as yours - but knowing our luck we would get a huge bill at the end.


              And I have to stop hitting the "last page" button - I totally missed your pictures!!! I saw some on Facebook today and they were GORGEOUS! You and your hubby look like you belong in a magazine!

                Ok, so I wasn't going crazy! I will avoid trying to get on the waitlist for a Thursday wedding!

                With regards to the set menu, Jazmin sent me a menu for the Tequila restaurant - JustMartha I can send it along to you if you want - I'm not sure if it is the same as on BahiaGourmet.

                Also, does anyone know how flexible they are with the set menu? We have a couple of vegetarians coming and some people who will only eat fish (no other meat) and then some who love their meat. I really really don't want to have to decide for all of them!!

                  Actually, I don't think Jazmin charged us for everything either. In total I got my dress, flowergirl dress and DH's wedding attire steamed, three extra bouquets, two extra corsages, four extra bouts, one extra bottle of champagne, two tickets to the Thursday night show ($30??), the disco for two hours ($300), day pass for photographer and assistant ($180) and the deluxe renewal of vows package ($870) all for $1300-$1400.

                  By adding just the #'s in the brackets I get $1380 so that would mean we got the steaming, extra flowers and champagne for free. I honestly don't think they keep very good records (when we got our final bill, nothing was broken down - just lumped together)
