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

Recommended Posts

I am hoping someone can help me... approx how long does it take  to walk from the trees to the  akumal beach ceremony site?  We are trying to figure out if the groomsmen should 'share' a song with the groom/his parents or have their own song . Also does someone 'work' the CD player- eg stop songs and start the next or do you have to let the songs play all the way through?

 

Thanks!

I could have sworn I posted this earlier but I don't see it so here it is again..

 

If you haven't ordered your invitations yet, definitely check out Custom Party Place!!! I just got my proofs back for Passport Wedding invites and boarding pass rsvp cards and they are awesome!! Ilene was amazing to work with - quick responses (something I'm not used to haha), very creative and super patient - I must've made 20 changes before I signed off on the final one.

 

Here's the link for her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Custom-Party-Place/124492324242984?fref=ts

 

Hope this helps,

J

Hi all, very close to booking a wedding at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum for Feb 2014. Would love to hear any thought you can offer. We are looking for a family friendly environment and a resort that is fair priced. We hope to balance both these things with a dream wedding day. Thanks in advance for any info as I scour this forum.

Hi Tammy,

 

I got ahold of them in the end. We got our menus too. Was it you who said that you are having the reception at frutos del mar? We just weren't clear if we had to pick the meal or if our guests can just from the menu we got once we select the restaurant. Let me know if you know.x

The walk is longer, but not a whole song long.  I think sharing a song would be fine.  My husband shared a song with our bridal party.  We had four groups in the bridal party.

Thanks! Do you know if there is someone that can start and stop the songs? or does the cd just play through?

 

I think this will be the plan for the songs;

 

Groomsmen (2 or 3) then Groom and his parents. These groups will share a song.

Bridesmaids (3)

ME!

Recessional

 

We are not sure if we want music to play when the guests are arriving/ being seated.  I think it might be good to start the music and have the groomsmen start coming and this will tell guests that the ceremony is starting and to sit down!

 

I know I want to walk down to Canon in D.  We like the Israel K..... version of somewhere over the rainbow, and the
'feather song' by  Alan Silvestri (kinda girly, so prob for the BMs).

It depends if your group is more than 30 people.  More than 30, you get one choice, less than 30 you get two choices off the menu and you have to decide in advance.

Do you know if they will allow you  a choice of 2 entrees if you have over 30 guests if you are willing to  pay extra?

 

I think we might have just over 30, but there are a few vegetarians in the group, so ideally they will let me have 2 'meat' options and then a veggie option....

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
