Ah that's good then!

 

My first choice was the Grand Bahia Principe but when we went to book it on the morning that the holidays/weddings got released for 2015, it had sold out within the hour! I went into panic mode and chose the GS without really looking at it previously - well we had looked at it but it was much more expensive than the Bahia so Id dismissed it. As it turns out the GBP had hugely put their prices up so way more than the GS so fate worked its way for us. And now I cant wait!!! Im hoping that this next 6 months flies by!

 

 

Prices are interesting.  We also priced out the Coba and it came back over $2000 PP for the 7 night all inclusive package (I think your packages work similar to ours)      After the fact though, I am also happy with the GS. Sometimes the posts from the other GBP brides seemed it was a bit disorganized and I never felt that way with my planning. I do believe it is different for everyone though and luck of the draw!

 

I got the 2014 prices as I booked then, I assume the same for you?

 

GS is closer to Cancun than the GBP :) there is another plus LOL!!!

Yes please any pointers would be appreciated Calgarybride2015.

 

I have a question with regards to upgrading packages from Gold to Presidential - it says that the Pres one includes a reception on the beach.. is this actually on the beach or is it the Palapa? If the beach how is it set up & where? I really fancy this but have no idea what it entails & don't want to pester the WCs 6 months out

 

Thanks

@newmansmiths

 

If you can look at your photos the day before you go home - do!

So we had to look at our photos Friday evening and we left Saturday AM. I HAD to choose which ones I wanted in the photo book so I had no time to really process which ones I loved or not.  So I found I put a lot in the book I didn't love and missed some I truly loved.

 

Also double check photos hahah on our signing page we have me signing and the best man!  Not my husband. Kinda funny.

Just annoyed that they don't take care when transfering pics over - my group photo was too large for the spot they put it, so instead of cropping it they just cut people off/out of the photo.

 

 

 

i am not sure if your packages would be the same as ours (if you went thru your TA not GS) ... but from what I remember the Platinum package was for the beach and the Presidential package was for the palapa.   Honestly, email the WC and ask - I bugged them all the time, that is what they are there for.  I would recommend the palapa over the beach just for weather, solid wood dance floor (no extra cost to pay for a dance floor), etc. 

 

Also, I know a lot of brides love the pres package but for us it included A LOT of fluff we didn't need.  Since we used the free package (silver) and upgraded, I in the end got what I wanted and still paid less than the pres package.

    Loving all the reviews, it sure does reassure me that it does all work out ok. I just have a quick question what did you put the music on for walking down the aisle and first dance, as they specific they cant download them over there. I asked WC and she said send it as a link not sure what this means. Can anyone help? we were going to put it on usb, ipod and cd's is this ok? thanking you in advance jo x

    I didn't bring mine so not sure. We just confirmed in our meeting they had the right songs and versions of those songs -- one she found in utube to play me - so unsure if they use utube for ones they don't have??

    Nonetheless I never provided them with anything other than the names of the songs I wanted and it went off without a hitch.

    Same resort different check in. Both sides have access to all the same stuff. The Mayan beach side is closer to the ocean whereas the riviera maya side is closer to the lobby
