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


Recommended Posts

For  my wedding, we had a poolside reception so we had a mic and were introduced by my father before dinner.

 

For the wedding I photographed at Coba, someone (dad again I think) introduced the bride and groom as they walked into the reception.  he just yelled, basically.  But the restaurant won't have other guests in it at that time, so it's not like you're competing with anyone.

 

For the wedding I photographed in Tulum, the bride & groom just walked in and everyone started clapping.

And what type of things definitely needed to be paid in cash? I don't want to bring too much, but I don't want to bring too little either. Thanks!

 

I can't remember specifically how much cash we brought, but we did need cash for a deposit on our wedding ceremony/reception. I believe it was half of the total amount we owed. We paid the remaining balance when we checked out on our Visa. If you are doing a legal ceremony you will need cash for the blood test as well.

I think I was told by another bride somewhere that they were not allowed speakers and mics etc at their dinner inside the a-la-carte restaurant because like you said, you won't be the only ones there. So the resort does not want to interrupt the dinner experience of its other patrons.

 

As for the seatings inside the restaurant, I believe Trisha listed some of them out in her Offical Gran Bahia Principe thread, so you could check that out, and see what it says there.

I checked the Official Gran Bahia thread, it did not say the seating / table options at the Mediterraneo.  If anyone has any info/ pictures they could post, it would be great!!!!

 

Thanks in advance!

Oh, that's a shame. Hopefully someone else will be able to help then.

 

I was wondering if any past brides/Trisha know and can suggest great locations for shooting the bride&groom pictures... maybe locations with buildings that have unique features or locations with great backdrops (other than the beach of course). I wanted to see if there are locations all around the 3 resorts, and consider renting a cart for an hour or so, so I can get to all these places with the photographers. 

 

I know I've always seen the big yellow building as backdrop.. and there was a little market/local shops? And there's the hammocks, but I have no idea where all these places are located. Thanks!

I know that there's a little "market" between the Coba and Akumal resorts.  Then there is a Market at the Hacienda also.  There are hammocks at Coba and Akumal I believe.

    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
    • Hi Oleg. Thank you for such a cool app. I advise you to add an item there: ftara weddings | toronto wedding photographer. It would help me a lot. I myself recently came to Canada and it was difficult to find good photographers. It would be much easier with your application.
