Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Amie: I also wanted Sara Tamargo to do my hair and makeup.  If I have to pay $90 for her to come on-site, then I might as well have her do hair/makeup for my bridesmaids too.

 

I finally bought my wedding dress on Friday and I guess I was late in ordering, because I have to pay a $150 rush charge and they said it will barely arrive at the beginning of June or the end of May (my wedding is June 11, 2011).  Hopefully it comes in faster than they said, so I don't have to stress.

Next I need to pick bridesmaid dresses, because they apparently take 12-16 weeks for the order.  I feel like I'm behind on everything.  haha Oh well!  I'm not stressed, so that's good.

Hi Ladies!

 

I have decided on this resort for my wedding!  I am very excited!  Wedding to be July 2012....

 

For those of you who were married here - can I ask what the avg cost per guest was?  Red tag has some offers at 800pp plus taxes, but also says about 1700 pp plus tax!!! 

 

My family is by no means well off! and I mean, I much prefer the cost of 800 pp!!!

 

 

What were you averaging the cost out for people?

 

 

Would be much appreciated!  Thanks <3

I paid for everything at the end with my Visa.  There were no charges added for currency conversion, which was shocking to me.  They explained it, but I didn't really understand what they were saying. 

My cost for guests was right around 600-800pp depending on length of stay.  But we went in April which is busy season.

Hi Everyone!

 

I hope all you future brides are enjoying the planning!  I have a question for any brides that got married last October, Patoru, etc...  have you received your marriage licence from the reosrt yet?  I know they tell you it take 3 months to arrive.  I've sent Eugenia multiple emails for at least a status of when they will ship and I haven't heard a peep. 

 

This is starting to stress me out!

Thanks for that.  I did speak with Eugenia again and she told me that all outside vendors have to pay $90 USD and that if he brings someone I will need to pay for them as well.  I don't know if I should question Eugenia again or just let it go.  Has anyone used DJ Bijan recently?  If so can you clear up whether there was a fee for him (and his wife...I have heard that she comes as well to take video) coming to the resort.

This is cut and pasted from the email she sent me!!

 

Hola Amie,
Sorry but I dont know this company, from other suppliers just DJ Bob and DJ Bijan because both always do a lot a wedding parties (DJ Bob is the main one because has more parties), and also please keep in mind that If you going to hire an external suppliers (I dont mean DJ Bob or DJ Bijan because they have arragementd already with Bahia) you need to cover the day pass charge, it is 90usd per person,

 

Hope that helped

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
