Gran Bahia Principe Tulum - May 2011

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I've been reading many threads and it's such a great help! I thought that I would start a page of my own!  Anybody else out there getting married at the Tulum site in May? I've been speaking to Karla but any advice from past and present brides would be greatly appreciated!

 

Right now, we've chosen to get married on the Tulum Beach.  We're also going to have the private poolside reception.  I don't know too much information about this reception.  Has anybody had experience with this?

 

What did you girls do about DJ's? Did most opt for ipod/speakers or did you hire the resort DJ?

 

Happy New Year everybody!

Hi Melmed,

Have you seen the thread called "Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!" http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/786/gran-bahia-principe-akumal-tulum-coba-post-here/3650#post_1527839  It has about 366 pages of discussions from brides getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum or Coba or Akumal.  I've been getting a lot of good information from there.

 

I'm getting married at Gran Bahia Principe Tulum on June 11, 2011 at the gazebo.  I'm really excited!  Jazmin is my wedding coordinator.  We are planning to have dinner at Gran Tortuga (brazilian style), then we're having a poolside cocktail reception for 3 hours.  I booked DJ Julian from Mood Event Services weddings@moodevents.com.mx .  I think there might be a fee from the hotel for bringing in an outside vendor ($90 is what I heard from others), but I think it's gonna be worth it.  The resort DJ may be good, but I haven't been able to get any information about how many songs they may have in their collection or how good their sound equipment is.  So I'm going with Mood Event Services because they always answer my questions quickly and provide all the details I need to assure me that they're gonna do a great job.  Mood Event services has over 60,000 songs in their collection and they are always updating their sound equipment to make sure it is the best.  DJ Julian used to be the DJ at Senor Frogs in Cancun in addition to being a DJ at weddings, so he has a lot of good experience.  I met with him in person a couple of weeks ago, because he happened to be traveling to Houston where I live.  He is fluent in English, which is good for me and he's from Mexico so obviously he's fluent in Spanish.  My fiance is Mexican, so it's good for me that this DJ speaks both languages.  He's going to make the announcements in English and Spanish for us. 

 

I hope this information is helpful.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
