MUCH better.

 

My only question is, did you ask the coordinator if you can have a rehearsal at 5pm at the gazebo???  That's a typical time that they'd have a wedding there so I just want to make sure that you've actually arranged for that to be an option for your group.

 

no - but i figure we can do a run through near it. i just want people to see it before

Well just be prepared that there will probably be a wedding there at 5pm and just be respectful of that and their video/pictures.  You'd probably be better off NOT at the top of the hour.  So say 5:30 or 4:30.

oh yes good point! Thanks! I think making it at 5:30 might be better anyway because doing a run through shouldn't take more than like 15 minutes? and we want to meet everyone up at 6 for a "dinner rehearsal"

Do you think if we give the DJ a USB with mp3 music files on it he will be able to play it for us?

Hi GBP brides!

 

It's my first time posting here! I just confirmed my wedding date for June 2, 2015 at the Tulum Gazebo! So excited!

 

I have a question I was hoping to get some help on. I wanted to have a pool side dinner and reception. I saw the prices at the beginning of this post, just wondering if they were still similar? I noticed the posts dated back to 2007. Just trying to get a feel for total cost (i'm on a tight budget).

 

Thanks!

Hi ladies! I'm just starting to email with the resort and getting really slow replys, obviously! Getting excited wedding November 6th!

I have a few questions.

1)I want to do programs, but how do I know the time line for everything? Will they confirm dinner and reception early enough to have them made?

 

2)ive noticed alot of you have brought fabric, how do you know howugh to bring? Did you bring chair ties? Table runners? Hammock site fabric?

 

3) did any of you do seating charts? Or menus?

 

4) how did you get your welcome bags/gifts to your guests?

 

5) did any of you have paper lanterns at your poolside reception?

 

6)If you have decorations you want at both the ceremony and the dinner and the reception, will they move them around for you?

 

Thanks ladies!

Hello!!!

 

I just got back from my Mexican wedding :)

I have nothing but amazing things to say. I hope you find my review helpful:

 

- We were engaged on July 4, 2013. We always knew that we wanted a smaller wedding, so a destination seemed ideal. Three years ago we traveled to the Gran Bahia Coba resort, so decided it would be good to host our wedding there since we were already familiar with it. 

 

- Since I am still in school (grad student working on doctorate), our wedding dates were limited to either August or December (when I have a break from classes). We decided on august 4, and booked our trip in early September. Prior to booking, I confirmed the date, time, and location of ceremony for availability. We wanted to get married at the Tulum gazebo. 

 

- All I can say is that the planning was really easy and stress free. I bought my dress, veil, and shoes online..... I also paid for my bridesmaids dresses and shoes since they were flying down to Mexico. I designed the wedding invitations, and made all of our decorations. 

 

- The biggest thing I can recommend is to stay organized. I knew how I wanted my decorations set up, so i made a book with pictures that I took of the setup for the wedding coordinator. They host like 10 weddings a day, so its important to be clear and organized. 

 

-Upon arriving, we did not have a letter in our room from the wedding coordinator (which on this thread I had read that other girls had that), so the following day after check in I asked the front desk. They directed me to a wedding coordinator and we set up a meeting. 

 

- The meeting was super easy and fast. My new coordinator upon arrival was Fanny, and she was amazing!! She had all of the emails I had sent to Jazmin, and we basically just read through the contract to clarify everything. During the meeting I also provided her with my decorations (that were separated into plastic bags and labeled as "ceremony", "dinner", or "reception").... and I provided photos for the table decorations for the dinner portion. I had everything in a carry on size suitcase that I let them keep until after the wedding. 

 

- The wedding was perfect... flowers, ceremony, dinner, reception --- no complaints. However, I was very organized, so this made it easy for the wedding coordinators. We also brought down our own music for the DJ. 

 

- Our wedding was a legal ceremony, and we had 40 guests. There was a total of 5 tables at the dinner part. I had everyone pre-seated prior to the wedding, and had my bridesmaids pass out the wedding favors ---- luggge tags with attached table card seating on it so everyone knew which table to sit at. I also made my own table numbers.

 

Any questions --- just let me know! :)

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
