Interesting.  From what I've known, they have always done it for free.  So please keep me informed on what the end decision is here.

I read online that you could bring your own fabric for the wedding ceremony so I inquired about bringing purple. Does it seem right that they want $150 for me to use my own fabric? I finally heard from the hotel today but seems like they are trying to gouge me a bit. For other people who used fabric did you set it up yourself or pay?


Still hoping for more information on this. If someone who recently got married at Bahia principe could let me know what they were advised/paid I would greatly appreciate it.

      Should I bring down a card box? Do guests bring cards/gifts during the reception? I wasn't expecting anyone to, but i wasnt sure if people generally do that for destination weddings?

        I read a post that suggested 16-18 yards so I bought purple and orange Tulle...Not sure how much is needed so bought a bit extra.

        No to the card box.  If someone brings something, just have a designated person (dad?) hold onto them.

         

        I used satin fabric.

         

        a lot of people can fit.  There is a good amount of area for chairs by the gazebo.

        Welcome! Prices are on the official thread. That's the best place to start :)

        If you're staying at Tulum you'll have to get married there, but it's gorgeous! Same with the reception.

        I had the BBQ outdoor dinner reception by the pool and it was amazing! Right next to the pool.

        Good luck with all your planning!

        Has anyone had a sand ceremony incorporated into their ceremony? How did it go?
