For instance I am giving my parents some stuff to bring, we'll take some and am giving a few small things to my maid of honour. Obviously this depends on your baggage allowance and how much you are bringing. We are only carrying over the favours and some small decorations. The only thing I'll have shipped to the hotel is handmade personalized marracas but these are being made in Mexico.

    I used to travel to mexico for business about 5 years ago and shipped a few trade show/client things separately.  I had a lot of issues as postal systems work differently there from what I understand. If you do ship I would make sure that you ship via FedEx or UPS which can get pricey.x

    oooo handmade maracas in Mexico.. would love to know who your vendor is!

    Trish are you able to assist in any way or speed the process along in your position of "Insider" as a few of the ladies on hre are over the 150 posts but unable to download documents?

     

    Many thanks in advance - lots of ladies will really appreciate it  if you can :)

      Wow 4 a day a location is a TON!  I found a really good deal with westjet group so I am thinking I will change my dates from Nov 23-30th instead.  I hope I can get a date.  When I asked about the 10-17 the only days they could offer were the 13th and the 17th.

          I've discovered maracasmexico.com for handmade maracas in Mexico. They're based in Puerto Vallarta, but it's mentioned on the website that they deliver to the resorts for you. I haven't checked for prices with them yet, so you guys can check it out if you want.

          Hi Joanne welcome aboard,  not sure when or where you are plannign your wedding but below are a note of some amazing and helpful thread/links

           

          "Post Your Wedding Date" http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/9132/post-your-wedding-date/657

           

          Brides (& grooms) can see who is getting married on dates close to them . It is handy too as some wedding parties have shared the cost of some vendors (photographers in particular)

          To ensure everyone knows how this thread works please go to the last post of this thread, select "quote" on the last entry

          Type in your name & your OH name, your forum name, wedding date, hotel & location in chronological order.

          OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

          http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/75549/official-gran-bahia-principe-riviera-maya-thread

           

          Anyone used Arrecife Photography at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal/Coba

          http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/63142/anyone-used-arrecife-photography-at-gran-bahia-principe-tulum-akumal-coba

           

          These are the links to each of the 3 different locations, if you click on each of them then click on the photos in turn you are given a 360 degree view of each point - pretty good

           

          Tulum Gazebo wedding location is on the furthest right of this picture

          http://www.bahia-principe.com/en/hotels/riviera-maya/resort-tulum/map

           

          Akumal wedding location is roughly on the large beach area in front of the swimming pool that is on the left side of this picture. Coba is the area in the background - it is central and doesnt have it's own beach area.

          Anyone have their entire playlist?
