Has anyone done a beachside wedding dinner?

Is it easy to get transport to Playa del Carmen?

Don't about the lanterns nor fireworks.

 

Beachside dinner is not available.  It's too windy you'd be eating sand and there's no lighting.

 

Transport to playa del Carmen is easy via taxi or colectivo.  You can read up on the official thread here: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/75549/official-gran-bahia-principe-riviera-maya-thread and I recommend doing some research on tripadvisor.

 

Good luck!

Hi everyone,

 

Going back through the info, it seems everyone suggests paying for the cheaper poolside bar as you will likely receive access to the full bar anyway.

 

Has anyone paid for the cheaper bar and actually been denied the selected drinks (rum, vodka, tequila, etc)? 

 

I've been quoted $3100 vs $1550 USD (max 60 ppl) so obviously I'd like to pay less but am nervous about this. Thoughts?

I've been wondering the exact same thing, so thank you for posting this. I think it's ridiculous that at an all inclusive they are charging us in addition to what we paid for the vacation for free drinks....makes no sense at all and seems like a total money grab. We are planning to pay for just the basic bar and are hoping they have everything, but I, too, would love to hear from other brides who paid for just the basic bar.

All the sections of the hotel can be walked to very easily, there are buggies that run continually between them if it is too warm to walk.  Akumal > Tulum the best route is along the beach, Coba is in land so take the paths - you will see plenty nature..  Sian Kian however is beside the golf course on the other side of the motor way so you need to take a buggy.

Hi Alan

 

Congrats on getting your date set - wooo hoo :)   Add it to the dates thread so you can see who / if anyone will be there the same time as you.

 

Its great to come across a fellow Scot on here.  I would like to say this should not be an issued with your piper - assuming they will be a guest booked on the holiday with you anyway.  As long as a guest no problem however from reading this and other threads if you bring n outside suppliers you have to pay a day pass for them.  

 

Happy planning, if there is anything you want to ask just holler.  We are just back from our wedding at Tulum Gazebo - A M A Z E B A L L S thewave.gif

    • 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
