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

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

We are having a symbolic ceremony...does anyone know if we can write our own ceremony script? Christy12's comment about how religious her ceremony was is scaring me.... plus I was just reading a thread on here about ceremony scripts....so many were so simple, yet beautiful!  thanks in advance!

Just a quick question for all you past brides... we booked with Transat Holidays, and our travel agent said the the flight schedules don't come out for a few more months so the dates could change by up to 2 or 3 days. If we reserve a date with the resort, are they pretty accommodating if you have to move the actual wedding date due to a change in flight departure? The date that we requested to hold with the resort is the 14th of Jan, but if the flights don't end up leaving until the 13th or something, would they change the wedding date for us?

 

Thanks!

Liz :)

Hey Igerry,

 

We flew air transat & our departure date didn't change out Edmonton but for our guests flying out of Calgary it was moved forward a day. It was pretty frustrating because our calgary guests would have had to leave the day after the wedding. We ended up moving our wedding back a day and resort was really accommdating to the change. The changes to departure times happened around September/October and nothing changed after that. 

 

We also didn't receive our official itinerarys until about 3 months before we left, so be paitent! 

 

Happy planning!

Thanks! :) Ya our travel agent told us the same thing with regards to the dates possibly changing and when to expect the changes, and we're all good with it. Just wanted to make sure the resort would be cool with it too. Sounds like they are pretty accommodating so thats great to hear!

I'm glad my pictures of the jacuzzi pool reception make you happy and excited!!

 

If you're a Tulum bride, I'm not sure if you'd be able to have a jacuzzi pool reception, as there aren't any in that area.  They are only in the Akumal and Coba sections.

 

AndreaandAaron, I have heard of many brides writing their own script, or even having their own family and friends marrying them when they have a symbolic ceremony.

Akumal does have a jacuzzi pool, but it's not quite the same as the ones in Coba, so I'm not sure.

What false information did they give you?  You can still have a poolside reception at Akumal, and perhaps they'll even let you have it at whatever pool you want.  I'm not the deciding factor, just trying to help along the way.

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
