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

Recommended Posts

Wanted to share our wedding favor idea for those who have not decided yet..

 

We are going to give each couple/single a bottle of tequila. Figured it goes with the theme and it's something our guest will actually enjoy (I was never one to use personalized shot glasses from people's weddings haha). To serve double duty, we are also using the favor tags as a seating chart.

 

Hope that helps :)

Seems kind of silly to me though.. what if by the poolside reception area isn't available and we already paid for the trip (and we don't want to do semi private).

 

Have you given them your booking number and it's still not confirmed? I'm sure it will all come together :)

 She has confirmed my location and given me my wedding coordinator.  I have Maria but I am still waiting on an email back to confirm the pool side reception.  We are still working stuff out with westjet too so we don't have a booking number.  I was pretty pushy with her not to be mean but I am not booking my wedding somewhere to find out I am not going to get the location or reception I want.   The tequilla sounds fun!!! :)

Not sure where you are travelling from, we are from Scotland and need to be there 4 days before wedding date.

Sorry - haven't been on here in a few days. We are going with maracasmexico. The email is maracasmexico@yahoo.com. They quoted us for 25 maracas (we are giving 1 per person) that are handpainted and a tag that says "shake at the kiss". 

 

We have been quoted $115 US + delivery (which will come to approx $90) so about $200 total. 

 

I hope that helps, Miriam x

 

Oh me cant believe I am having 2nd and 3rd thoughts now with 17 weeks to go ........

 

Can any bride that booked a local photographer to do their wedding photos let me know how much the Bahia Principe charged for a day pass.   Thinking about getting local rather than Arrecife  . . . HELP!

 

Many thanks in advance

Gotcha! Maybe I should start being a little more persistent too!! Word of advice, get multiple quotes from Westjet.. I think we have 6 or 7 now because they came back each time with a different rate - all way more than what we were hoping for. Finally got one today that's $350 less per person than all other previous quotes (for the same week mind you). Makes NO sense. There's a girl named Tracy that we dealt with who gave us the best price.

It is making me a bit nervous.

Get used to it - the communications aren't the best. Still waiting on tons of confirmation. I have just started to chill out about it though - better than get stressed. We aren't doing the pool side party as are just going to do the Mexican fiesta party as ours is on a thurs.

You cannot hire local, you'd have to fly in a photographer. 


You can have your photographer stay at a different hotel (for an $800 day pass), however they cannot be a local riviera mayan professional photographer.

We got really lucky our first quote was awsome!  We booked from 4 different cities (Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, and Grande Prairie) and it was all under $1200 for 7 days flight and everything included with Westjet.  I was so nervous because we requoted yesterday as we needed to add 10 more people from Edmonton bringing our total up to 30 out of Edmonton and everything came back the same within a few dollars.  I am pretty excited to be done with all the quote, requoting!  I hope you get lucky like we did! :)

Hi Tracy, Thanks so much for easing my nerves! I'll check and see which pool we're going to be having the reception at. Did you bring decorations?
I took down paper lanterns. They set them up and looked great but in the end they made the place look great even before they were put up.

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
