    Hey Ladies! I am so glad I found this forum! EVen though I'm still overwhelmed by the whole wedding planning thing. My fiance and I are thinking of the Gran Bahia Principe (either Coba or Tulum) as we love their gazebo structure. Anybody here know where they hold the weddings in case it rains? Any indoor pictures would be great! I tried to email the wedding coordinator but they said they will not send out pictures or further information until they get a final confirmation from me. I just don't feel comfortable putting down a deposit without knowing these details. Thanks in advance!

    Maddy

      I'm sorry Maddy! I've never seen indoor pictures of weddings. I've heard they have them in the lobbies though, and I've seen multiple pictures of them and they are beautiful! What month are you thinking of getting married in?

          We're thinking October 2008. Apparently that's a rainy month so I just want to take pre-cautions. Sunsierra, keep me updated when you find out! I have a co-worker that has a friend that got married at the Bahia last year. The wedding coordinator did not organize an indoor location. Well, it rained on their wedding day and they ended up having the ceremony in the restaurant. I really don't want that to happen to me! I encourage all the ladies here to talk to your WC about indoor locations to prevent this situation.

            Hey, sorry for the late reply - Jazmin emailed me and apparently the Tequila restaurant is their rained out location. Here are the pictures she sent me:

              Thank you Sunsierra! I'm not thrilled about having it in a restaurant but I guess that's part of the risk. I read somewhere that when it rains in the cancun / mayan riviera area, it's usually only for short periods or usually at night. I hope that's true. Anybody been to the Mayan in October? How rainy is it?

                Hiya, sorry for the late reply... I found Playa Del Carmen Weather to be helpful. I've never been so I can't really help you first hand but that page will give you the averages.
