    I am hoping someone can help me... approx how long does it take  to walk from the trees to the  akumal beach ceremony site?  We are trying to figure out if the groomsmen should 'share' a song with the groom/his parents or have their own song . Also does someone 'work' the CD player- eg stop songs and start the next or do you have to let the songs play all the way through?

     

    Thanks!

      I could have sworn I posted this earlier but I don't see it so here it is again..

       

      If you haven't ordered your invitations yet, definitely check out Custom Party Place!!! I just got my proofs back for Passport Wedding invites and boarding pass rsvp cards and they are awesome!! Ilene was amazing to work with - quick responses (something I'm not used to haha), very creative and super patient - I must've made 20 changes before I signed off on the final one.

       

      Here's the link for her Facebook page http://www.facebook....4242984?fref=ts

       

      Hope this helps,

      J

        Hi all, very close to booking a wedding at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum for Feb 2014. Would love to hear any thought you can offer. We are looking for a family friendly environment and a resort that is fair priced. We hope to balance both these things with a dream wedding day. Thanks in advance for any info as I scour this forum.

          Hi Tammy,

           

          I got ahold of them in the end. We got our menus too. Was it you who said that you are having the reception at frutos del mar? We just weren't clear if we had to pick the meal or if our guests can just from the menu we got once we select the restaurant. Let me know if you know.x

          The walk is longer, but not a whole song long.  I think sharing a song would be fine.  My husband shared a song with our bridal party.  We had four groups in the bridal party.

            WHat kind of song do you want for the groom and wedding party?

            do you have a different song when the wedding party is being seated?

            i havent been to a wedding in soooo long.

              Thanks! Do you know if there is someone that can start and stop the songs? or does the cd just play through?

               

              I think this will be the plan for the songs;

               

              Groomsmen (2 or 3) then Groom and his parents. These groups will share a song.

              Bridesmaids (3)

              ME!

              Recessional

               

              We are not sure if we want music to play when the guests are arriving/ being seated.  I think it might be good to start the music and have the groomsmen start coming and this will tell guests that the ceremony is starting and to sit down!

               

              I know I want to walk down to Canon in D.  We like the Israel K..... version of somewhere over the rainbow, and the
              'feather song' by  Alan Silvestri (kinda girly, so prob for the BMs).

                Hi Tammy, I got ahold of them in the end. We got our menus too. Was it you who said that you are having the reception at frutos del mar? We just weren't clear if we had to pick the meal or if our guests can just from the menu we got once we select the restaurant. Let me know if you know.x

                Yes we are having the meal at frutos del mar and Eugenia sent the menu and told us to select one starter one soup one main and one desert and let her know before we arrive

                  It depends if your group is more than 30 people.  More than 30, you get one choice, less than 30 you get two choices off the menu and you have to decide in advance.

                    Do you know if they will allow you  a choice of 2 entrees if you have over 30 guests if you are willing to  pay extra?

                     

                    I think we might have just over 30, but there are a few vegetarians in the group, so ideally they will let me have 2 'meat' options and then a veggie option....
