newbie-gran bahia principe

Recommended Posts

hi i'm wendy and in the very beginning stages of planning our wedding. we've decided on the gran bahia principe - mayan riveria in mexico...sometime in 2010. maybe april or november. we've been there 2x already so we are familiar with the resort.

 

i'm interested in hearing others experience about getting the legal ceremony and getting the blood tests done there. we can't decide if we should do that or get married legally here.

Hi Wendy... I know that a lot of girls do both but to me I would think legally getting married here would be easier. You're good either way though. welcome3.gif to the forum and CONGRATS!!!wink.gif

Welcome!!! I got married on the Akumal side in April. I can't recommend it enough! The weather was GORGEOUS and the ceremony was amazing!

We did the legal version, so we did the paperwork and the bloodwork. Super easy. The blood tests are done at the Hacienda (which I'm sure you're familiar with). The nurse was super friendly and VERY good at getting in my rolling veins on the first try. I was beyond impressed. Everything was brand new and sterile. No issues at all.

 

The legal ceremony was alright. It has to be in Spanish and then translated into English. That didn't bother us at all since we were in Mexico, I thought it was kind of cool! Then I added my own sand ceremony which was read by my aunt. It was perfect!!

 

Any other questions, please feel free to ask! I love the GBP and I can't wait to go back!

thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

 

i appreciate the input Tlseege about the ceremony & blood tests. if you got married on the akumal side did you have a beach ceremony? i am still confused about the actual locations for the wedding. even though we have been there 2x we never actually saw the areas where the ceremony is performed. i like the idea that they do spanish & english, that's good to know. i joking told FH that i wanted to say something silly in my vows in spanish...haha

 

thanks Sapphire723 i will check out that thread and try to help with any questions about the resort!

 

i'm really enjoying this website there is so much valuable information.
