    No worries ladies. This forum feels like a support group. It's awesome.

    Attached are pictures of private reception and ceremony location.
    As far as I know, for ceremony - choice between beach or lounge bar (aka garden). For private reception - choice between beach, conference room, pool side and the Asian restaurant (although for the restaurant, apparently the WC has to check on availability).

    Enjoy!

      Hey everybody!!! I just started planning my wedding in the Riviera Maya and I just wanted to tell you guys THANK YOU!!! I just found this forum and reading through old posts have been a tremendous help to me!! I've been searching for the best deal for my family, and I have been debating between the Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda, Sandos Playacar Riviera, and the the Grand Sunset Princess Resort, but ya'll have definitely swayed me towards the BBGE. I'm planning on confirming a date in Feb 2010 and I will post anything new I find out as soon as I get the info. :) Thanks again!!!

          Thank you so much!!!

              Hi girls,

              Just got back from my wedding. It was fantastic! I have all the info you could imagine now. I am going to post a big write up and get pics organized from other guests, so when that happens, I will post a link as well to pictures. In the mean time, if you have any specific questions, let me know so I can include answers in my "report."

                Raegan,
                Thanks so much for coming back and helping post pic for all of us! I would love to see any reception pics you have (with it being decorated for a wedding). Also, i would love to see the wedding pics (especially if you did it and it wasn't on the beach.) How were the linens they used, the coordinators, the flowers and centerpieces, anything we should make sure to bring there ourselves?? Cant wait to see pics!

                  Hi Ladies.

                  Less than a month away and I am freaking out!!!! All this talk about the epidemic in MX and the potential of a stop on traveling is ruining my final stretch of planning.....I don't know what to do. Anyone has any good words to share?

                  Also, just want you guys to know that I am a bit frustrated with the resort, as they are not willing to negotiate the group rate with me. I signed the contract back in September for the room block at $110 per person, double occupancy. Some of my guests (I also saw it after checking it) a cheaper rate directly at BBGE web site. I have been back and forth with Talina (new Wedding Manager) and also Roberto Citron, Director of Sales. They are not going to lower my rate, even though we have a pretty big group (over 120 people)!!! Hi response was that he was going to ask his webmaster to change the price in the web site - what kind of customer service is that? I saw a few weeks ago a rate of $160 per couple for the garden suite....Considering all the bad publicity about the drug war and now the swine flu epidemic, I just think they should work on working with the clients they have.....just very disappointed and worry of what could happen...

                  Ladies, anyone has any positive thinking to share :o(

                  I know some of you had questions about cake and flowers the resort has....Jojo, thanks for posting the info. Things have been really crazy since I started this thread - thank you so much for keeping it up! Did you find the photographer yet?

                  Anyone needing pics, I have some, please email me so I can reply - pribrzl@gmail.com

                  Happy Planning everyone!

                    CONGRATULATIONS!! I'm so happy to hear that it went well!!
                    I'm all worried about the slow respond from the WC, the bankrupcy of Canjet, and now the flu-type virus that I'm afraid might freak out our guests. It's encouraging to hear that it worked out for you!

                    I can't wait to hear all about it...all the little details like decor, candles, food, dancing, music, flowers, cake...don't know where to begin or end...lol

                      Hi Everone! I'm happy to have found this forum! I was suposed to be in Mexico TODAY and getting married on Tuesday, but, alas, we had to re-book for July. I am confidant that things will be back to normal in July (ooohhh goodness. I SURE hope so! Could you imagine having to re-book twice?!?!?!?!) My ONLY piece of consolation is that it is pouring rain all this coming week in the Mayan. Let's just PRAY that the weather is ok in July!!!!

                      Anyways, we couldnt get back to our original resort (Bahia Principe Tulum) so booked at the BBGE instead! It looks beautiful, so I am excited, but the wedding packages are much more expensive (I was reading all the posts, and it seems as though they just raised the prices). My new date is set for July 7 at 5:00 pm - is anyone else going to be there that week? It's funny, because I am already finding the lack of reply from Candy quite frusterating! My TA got my date worked ou with her, but I have no idea if she received my contract or how I am suposed to pay for the deposit - how did you girls pay your deposit? Do you recommend that I just call her and give my credit card over the phone?

                      Are you ladies planning on hiring a guitar trio for your ceremony? I had that set up at the old resort, but am not sure if that is an option here.... does anyone know? I'd rather live music than play music from a cd player..... any advice?

                      Anyways, it's great to "meet" you all and I look forward to many more posts!

                      By the way - we have booked our photography with Del Sol Photography - they just won a "Top 10" award and have been SUPER understanding about having to switch the dates. We have book Vincent - here is a link to his work: http://www.delsolpho...hy.com/vincent/
